Abstract

In a document copier machine where original documents are required to slide along a glass surface for positioning against both a front and a side reference edge, the document can hang up along the side reference edge unless that edge is tight against the glass. This article describes a clamping mechanism for insuring uniform distribution of clamping pressure along the length of the reference edge.
