Abstract

A device for separating a transfer material or media, such as paper, from a photoreceptor in a xerographic printing machine is disclosed. The device, positioned underneath the photoreceptor, forms a small diameter roll or bump that causes the transfer material to separate from the photoreceptor. Currently, separation of paper from a photoreceptor or a transfer belt is accomplished using, for example, stripper fingers which can be damaging to the photoreceptor since the fingers are in constant contact with the photoreceptor. Also when stripper fingers are incapable of removing the transfer media from the photoreceptor belt, the media has a tendency to jam under the stripper fingers, which may result in blemished copies as well as bent stripper fingers.
