Abstract

This disclosure relates to a stripper mechanism for stripping copy sheets from the pressure roll of a roll fuser apparatus. It has been found that under certain conditions (i.e., when the pressure roll is cool) the copy sheets follow the contour of the pressure roll but when the pressure roll is hot, the copy sheets do not follow this path. Accordingly, stripper fingers are only needed until the pressure roll temperature becomes elevated.
