Abstract

A paper sheet aligner in a copier, as disclosed, e.g., in U.S. Patent 3,980,296, includes a plurality of driven rollers 1, 2, 3, 4 arranged in different angles toward the sheet feeding direction. All rollers are driven by motor 5 via drive belts 6, 7, 8 and parallel drive shafts 9, 10, 11. Flexible couplings 12, 13, 14, 15 serve to provide the driving force to angled rollers 1, 2, 3, 4.
