Abstract

A stapling system for accommodating variable numbers of copy sheets from a copying machine utilizes a fixed stapling head 1 mounted in an inverted position on a support frame 2 and a movable or active clinch and clamp devices- This approach can improve alignment between the clamp and the head, allows a linear motion for the clamp (rather than the arc motion implied in a movable head) and allows paper sets to be referenced to the fixed headS
