Abstract

Disclosed are the details of a document handling system intended for use in a xerographic copier/duplicator. The document handling system performs the functions of transporting a document to be copied to the platen of the copier/duplicator, registering the document with respect to the platen, and removing it from the platen. The configuration minimizes the tendency for documents of heavy substance to overshoot the registration edge and for documents of light substance to be buckled and/or creased at the lead edge against the registration edge.
