Abstract

When a document has stopped on a bend in one or more nips provided by nip rollers, and is contained by a registration channnel along one edge, it is extremely dificult to clear the document without damaging it by wrinkling. What is needed is to be able to move the document sideways, out of the registration channel, prior to pulling it from the nip rollers.
