Abstract

Proposed is a method for improving the accuracy of finisher capacity range checks in an electrophotographic printing machine. The method determines the theoretical set thickness based on the cumulative thickness of individual sheets in a print set. The theoretical set thickness is the sum of the sheet thickness of each sheet in the set, plus any factors that account for set fluff or image build-up. Sheet thickness may be inferred from the paper basis weight, or it can be entered directly by an operator, as a stock attribute.
