Abstract

When copying duplex originals, it is necessary with some photocopiers to await the feeding out of the document during the copying cycle for the first side, retrieve the document and then feed the reverse side through the copier. This process frequently results in pages either not being copied or becoming out of sequence. The subject document reverser handler device, eliminates this problem by automatically receiving the document as it is fed out of the copier after one side has been copied, and feeding it back to the operator in a position for copying the reverse side.
