Abstract

A paper transport system for directing substrates includes a baffle member adapted to an appropriate configuration generally curved or otherwise in combination with one or more fabric belts routed over the outside of the baffle with the substrate path being provided by the belt(s) and baffle. The belt is made with woven nylon fabric material and rubber covered on the side which does not contact the substrate. A substrate is introduced between the belt and baffle and is reliably and economically transported without the use of vacuum or multiple pinch roller systems.
