Abstract

Baffles are utilized in conventional xerographic machines for guiding a sheet into contact with the photoconductive surface for image transfer, In some machines the baffle also serves to prevent corona from prematurely reaching the sheet before image transfer is to occur, In these systems a large spacing has been required between the baffle and the drum to compensate for tolerances of the respective parts. In a high humidity environment the paper becomes very wavey. As the trail edge of the sheet makes contact with the photoconductive surface these waves prevent total contact, thereby causing image deletions,
