Abstract

Paper path reliability and avoidance of paper jams are major considerations in high volume systems, and particularly in printing systems where it is desired to achieve as high an availability as possible. In this regard, one of the major concerns with using the traditional reprographic machine is the added complexity of the machine duplex paper path which is long, has bends, and uses an inverter or duplex tray to achieve duplexing. However, duplexing is essential since there is a perceived trend toward higher information density on any given sheet.
