In copying machines, rubber rollers are used to transport paper. In the contact region stress, strain and displacement arise. The stress--strain relations lead to a PDE, which in the Fourier domain can be solved as a system of linear equations. In this paper the method of residues will be used to perform the inverse Fourier transform on this solution. The summation of residues in a finite number of poles supplies an approximation for the inverse Fourier integral.
