Pinch roller assembly

Image Number 4 for United States Patent #4567491.

An easily adjustable and automatically aligning pinch roller assembly for use in a graphics plotter. A movable carriage hangs from a supplemental inverted T-shaped track below the main carriage track of the plotter. The pinch roller is pivotally attached to an arm from the carriage. A leaf spring on the carriage pulls the carriage loosely into positional alignment with the pinch roller aligned with the drum while allowing translational movement easily. A second bias spring urges the pinch roller down and the carriage into gripping engagement with the supplemental track with sufficient force to prevent translational movement thereof. A release bar holds the pinch roller off the drum and releases the gripping force to allow the carriage to be slid for adjustment.
