Abstract

A finishing station, i.e., a stitcher or stapler, is coupled to the processing station of an electrophotographic printing machine. In the printing machine the copy paper is registered at the rear of the processor. In the finishing station the copy paper is registered at the front thereof. To overcome the differences in registration edges, the finishing station is shifted laterally to bring the registration edge thereof into alignment with the front edge of the copy sheet in the processor. The finisher moves with respect to the processor when the size of the copy sheet is varied.
