William R. Burger - Fairport NY
James E. Hutton - Webster NY
Morton Silverberg - Rochester NY
Assignee:
Xerox Corporation - Stamford CT
International Classification:
G03B 2732
US Classification:
355 3BE
Abstract:
In a recirculating document handling apparatus for a copier, in which a set of document sheets are sequentially circulated from a stack thereof to the imaging station of the copier and back to the stack, and in which selectable inverting apparatus is provided for inverting or not inverting the document sheets as they are being so circulated and before they are returned to the stack, the latter comprises a large diameter inverting roller adjacent the downstream side of the imaging station, normally rotated in a first direction, and selectably rotated in the reverse direction, and a repositionable wedge-shaped first sheet guide provides in a first position, a document sheet first path from said imaging station around the outside of said inverting roller and towards the stack with the inverting roller driven in the first direction, and said first guide being repositionable to a second position, in coordination with said reverse rotation of said inverting roller in which a document sheet is guided in a second path around the inside of said inverting roller (between the inverting roller means and the imaging station) and then to the outside of the inverting roller, the reverse rotation of the inverting roller being sufficient to rotate the trail edge of a document sheet in this second path past a second guide means adapted to allow the trail edge of the document sheet to flip relative thereto so that upon re-reversal of the inverting roller the document sheet is fed toward the stack trail edge first.

Toner Removal And Surface Abrading Apparatus For A Charge Retentive Surface

View page
US Patent:
4870465, Sep 26, 1989
Filed:
Feb 25, 1988
Appl. No.:
7/160434
Inventors:
Nero R. Lindblad - Ontario NY
Morton Silverberg - Westport CT
Assignee:
Xerox Corporation - Stamford CT
International Classification:
G03G 2100
US Classification:
355296
Abstract:
In association with a blade cleaning arrangement supported for chiseling removal of toner from a charge retentive surface, an auger is provided to move toner to the edge of the charge retentive surface and simultaneously simulate a foam roll cleaner, known to have good abrasive characteristics in the presence of toner. An auger member having a roughened or sharpened surface in contact with a charge retentive surface is arranged slightly upstream and adjacent to a blade cleaning arrangement for the removal of residual toner accumulating adjacent to a cleaning blade after release from a charge retentive surface such as a photoreceptor in a reproduction machine. The auger member may be comprised of a foam material providing an abrading surface roughness. Other augering members simulate the abrading qualities of the foam roll cleaner, such as for example, a sharpened auger edge which lightly scrapes the charge retentive surface, or an auger of a polymeric material, with a roughed surface.

Firmly Gripping High Capacity Paper Clip

View page
US Patent:
5406680, Apr 18, 1995
Filed:
Jul 28, 1993
Appl. No.:
8/098518
Inventors:
Morton Silverberg - Westport CT
International Classification:
B42F 100
US Classification:
24 679
Abstract:
A family of improved paper clips and a process for their formation is disclosed which comprises a central bridge leg joining two overlapping and contacting gripping jaws. Each gripping jaw lies in its own plane and controlled torsional forces in the legs comprising the jaws provide for independently controlled gripping forces at multiple tangential contact points. The controlled gripping forces and two layer planar shape result from a substantially elastic transformation from a preceding stepped helix wire form. The advantages include a firm grip on thin or thick packets, the ability to stay flat on thick packets of material, resistance to distortion, special features to aide application to thin or thick packets of material, and modest size facilitating its general purpose use.

US Patent:
3966199, Jun 29, 1976
Filed:
Mar 17, 1975
Appl. No.:
5/558750
Inventors:
Morton Silverberg - Rochester NY
Assignee:
Xerox Corporation - Stamford CT
International Classification:
B65H 502
US Classification:
271275
Abstract:
An electrostatographic copying system in which an image is formed on an imaging surface and transferred at a transfer station to a copy sheet, where the copy sheet is electrostatically transported through the toner transfer station on a belt. As the sheet is loaded onto the belt, skewed spaced fingers hold it against the belt while a corona charge is applied through the fingers to tack the sheet to the belt.

Vacuum Document Feeder

US Patent:
4589651, May 20, 1986
Filed:
Oct 17, 1985
Appl. No.:
6/788299
Inventors:
Morton Silverberg - Rochester NY
Assignee:
Xerox Corporation - Stamford CT
International Classification:
B65H 906
US Classification:
271245
Abstract:
In a document feeder with a vacuum belt platen transport system for transporting document sheets over the platen of a copier under a vacuum plenum backing surface closely overlying the platen and into a registration position for imaging the document sheet, with a registration system for stopping the document sheet at the registration position, the platen transport system including a vacuum source for applying a partial vacuum to a document sheet being transported sufficient to provide transport of the document sheet with movement of the belt transport into the registration system, and a system for automatically reducing the level of the partial vacuum in the vacuum plenum sufficiently to allow slippage of a document sheet relative to the belt transport at the registration system, and wherein the registration system comprises document engaging registration fingers movable into and out of the path of a document sheet being transported by the vacuum belt platen transport system, the improvement wherein the system for automatically reducing the level of the partial vacuum in the vacuum plenum comprises a valve system directly actuated by the registration system by mechanical connection to the movable registration fingers to automatically reduce the vacuum level in the vacuum plenum in direct response to the movement of the registration fingers into the path of a document sheet.

Abstract:
In a document feeder with a vacuum belt platen transport system for transporting document sheets over the platen of a copier under a white vacuum plenum backing surface closely overlying the platen and into a registration position for imaging the document sheet, with a registration system for stopping the document sheet at the registration position, the platen transport system including a vacuum source for applying a partial vacuum to a document sheet being transported sufficient to provide transport of the document sheet with movement of the belt transport into the registration system, and a system for automatically reducing the level of the partial vacuum in the vacuum plenum sufficiently to allow slippage of a document sheet relative to the belt transport at the registration system and to avoid damage to the document sheet by the registration system; the improvement comprising a system for prior detection of a document sheet of greater than a predetermined size to be registered by the registration system. The vacuum belt platen transport system preferably comprises plural unapertured spaced-apart moving belts between which the partial vacuum is applied, wherein the partial vacuum level is automatically reduced to less than approximately 8 millimeters of water in response to the system for prior detection of a document sheet of greater than a predetermined size, and wherein the belts continue to move after the document sheet is stopped at the registration position by the registration system with slippage between the belts and the document sheet, and wherein the partial vacuum level is so automatically reduced after the partial transporting of the document sheet over the platen of the copier but prior to the transporting of a document sheet of greater than the predetermined size into the registration system.

Ski Jump Stack Height Sensor

View page
US Patent:
5098080, Mar 24, 1992
Filed:
Dec 19, 1990
Appl. No.:
7/630052
Inventors:
Stephen C. Arnone - Rochester NY
Morton Silverberg - Westport CT
Assignee:
Xerox Corporation - Stamford CT
International Classification:
B65H 3110
US Classification:
271187
Abstract:
A stack height sensor for stacked sheet members includes a switch having an actuator arm positioned adjacent to top edge of the stack at a predetermined level. A flexible "flogger" or "scuffer" element is moved along a path which first contacts the top surface of the sheet members, and then slides off the stack edge in the direction of the switch actuator arm. The switch actuator arm is adjusted such that the deflected path of the flexible flogger or scuffer element intercepts the switch for stack heights less than the predetermined value and "ski jumps" the switch actuator arm for stack heights greater than the predetermined height. The flogger or scuffer elements can be mounted on the disk inverter of a photocopier output section, and the switch output be used to control the position of the stack elevator mechanism. Alternatively a separate hub synchronized for rotation with the disk inverter, can be used to mount the flogger or scuffer elements.
