Abstract

The present disclosure describes location of a dedicated purge sheet destination at the terminus of the paper path in a reprographic or printing machine. A dedicated purge sheet destination is defined to be a sheet delivery point (e.g., an output tray, a stacker) that is used only for purge sheets; this destination would not be one of the operator selectable job destinations. Placing the purge destination at the paper path terminus permits sheets at any point in the paper path to be sent to the purge destination. In other words, no sheet in the paper path is ever beyond the purge destination.
