Abstract

When loading continuous forms into a printer, it is necessary to insert the paper by hand to a point where the rollers make contact with the platen. This becomes particularly cumbersome when using multipart forms, because the edges tend to separate. Many times the operator of the printer must load the forms from behind in order to insure proper insertion into the roller platen interface.
