Abstract

Paper 10 in basket 12 is loaded against toothed belt 14 by spring 16. When belt 14 moves, it pulls the top sheet of paper off of the stack into feed rolls 18. The second and succeeding sheets of paper are restrained by fixed tooth 20 which is positioned to allow only one sheet between it and belt 14. Sheet separation is accomplished by feed rolls 18, whose surface speed is greater than the surface speed of belt 14. The stack of paper is held level by spring 16 pressing it against belt 14 and idler 22.
