Abstract

Bound documents having one or more pages, such as a bank passbook, present problems to document feeding devices because the pages tend to bulge relative to the binding or backing members. This, of course, creates a problem with regard to registering the document in print position because the bulges cause mis-registration.

At least one non-text object (such as an image or picture) has been suppressed.

Feed Roll Drive for Bound Documents

Bound documents having one or more pages, such as a bank passbook, present problems to document feeding devices because the pages tend to bulge relative to the binding or backing members. This, of course, creates a problem with regard to registering the document in print position because the bulges cause mis-registration.

To reduce the bulging, both the front and rear feed rolls 10 and 15 are driven and the front feed roll 10 is driven at a faster rate than the rear feed roll 15. The faster driving rate of front feed roll 10 tends to keep the pages 20 flat against cover 25, particularly as hinge 30 moves out of the curved feed portion onto the straight portion.
