Abstract

A document cassette for an automatic document feeder may be preloaded with documents at a site remote from the reproducing station and delivered to the reproducing station for document copying. The documents, which are preloaded in the cassette such that they are staggered at either the lead or trail edge for separation, depend on the beam strength of the paper for separation from the stack. In Figure 1, a cassette 10 is shown in the advanced position resting on machine cover 12 adjacent the document feeder head 14 which is on top of copying platen 16. Document register plate 20 is attached to the document feeder head. In the advanced position, the cassette is drawn toward the separation plate 20 such that the individual documents tend to bend and slightly wrap around curl bar 22. As illustrated in Figure 1, the documents are loaded into the cassette flush against the rear of the cassette. However, if desired, the documents may be loaded in
