The transfer corona of a xerographic copier operates to charge the back surface of a sheet of copy paper, as this sheet passes through the copier's transfer station. As a result, toner transfers from the photo-conductor's toned image to the front surface of the copy paper. The sheet's leading edge is then lifted off the photoconductor, as by a pneumatic device, and the sheet's leading edge is then fed to a fuser where a permanent copy is formed.
