Abstract

When using computer forms feeding in a copier/duplicator, once imaging has begun and the form starts to move to the output side of the machine, two problems usually arise. First, an operator who wants to manually assist stacking into a catch tray must stop the copying process at the proper moment so that the first few panels are situated in the tray, and properly fold them. The operator can then restart the job. Second, if the system is designed with a self-stacking output tray, the form must be paused at the proper time to allow the first panel to settle in mid air so that it is vertical when it reaches the input throat of the tray.
