Currently nip width settings between fuser and pressure rolls in xerographic print engines are set using an impression formed by pressing fuser and pressure rolls together with adjusting screws. The impression, taken by offsetting an image from a sheet of paper onto a blank sheet of paper, has "fuzzy" edges, making measurements with a scale difficult and inaccurate. Nip interference measurement accuracy is necessary due to required machine part tolerances.
