Abstract

In certain Xerox copiers, the fuser module can be moved in and out on slides or rails to enable easy access for jammed paper clearance. At the same time it may be necessary to release load between the fuser rolls in order to separate them and free the copy. This may typically be achieved by rotating a shaft which operates a cam or some other suitable mechanism.
