Abstract

In an electrophotographic printing machine, it is frequently necessary to register the copy sheet as it advances along the sheet path. As shown in Figure 1, the copy sheet moves in the direction of arrow 10 until it engages guide 12. Guide 12 is pivoted into the copy sheet path by spring 14. At the appropriate time coil 16 is energized overcoming the force of spring 14 to pivot guide 12 in a downwardly direction away from the sheet path. This permits the copy sheet to continue to move in the direction of arrow 10.
