A conventional, electrically b sed transfer roll (BTR) such as that used in the Xerox 6500 R color copier has an external cam to operate the copy sheet stripper and gripper fingers. This cam induces forces to the BTR which can cause variations in copy density. The action of the cam can also cause other perturbations in the machine which interfere with or reduce copy quality.
