Abstract

It is possible that wrinkles, image smear and deletions can occur in some copier configurations. One situation where this happens is when the leading edge of a copy sheet is carried out of the copier by the feed-out rollers while the trail edge of the copy sheet has not passed the transfer corotron. This condition and the use of gripper bars can result in a condition where the copy sheet suddenly buckles when the leading edge reaches the feed-out rollers. This sudden occurrence of the buckle momentarily pulls the trailing edge of the copy sheet causing smear.
