Abstract

Disclosed herein is an apparatus for the electrostatic transfer of an electrostatically adherent toner image from a curvilinear surface of an electrostatographic copier, This apparatus comprises a plurality of rollers arranged axially parallel to one another, a continuous web of corona pervious material supported on at least two of the axially parallel rollers and at least one corona discharge electrode positioned relative to the corona pervious web so as to permit the electrostatic tacking of the electro- statically adherent toner image from the curvilinear sur- face to a receiving sheet as said receiving sheet is transported by the curvilinear surface through the region of contact of the web and the curvilinear surface,
