In an electrophotographic printing machine, the photoconductive surface has cylindrical run-out. In order to maintain optimum development of the electrostatic latent image recorded on the photoconductive surface, it is desirable to maintain the spacing in the development zone between magnetic brush developer roller 10 and photoconductive drum 12 substantially constant. Thus, the magnetic brush developer roller moves radially relative to its center line so as to maintain the gap in the development zone substantially constant as the drum radius varies. In order
