Abstract

Some xerographic reproduction machines use a vacuum stripper to remove a sheet of paper from a photoreceptor after transfer of a toner image to the paper. The vacuum stripper usually includes a plenum assembly having circular perforations or slots which align with circular perforations in a transport belt mounted to move over the plenum assembly. See U.S. Patent 3,819,175 for an arrangement showing a plenum assembly with circular perforations.
