Top and bottom paper feeders, which employ vacuum systems, can utilize either belt or slide carrier devices. The concepts proposed here are directly apolicable to slide feeder systems. In a slide feeder system shown in drawing Figure 1, motion of slide 2 when feeding a single sheet 3 requires that slide 2 remain stationary during the sheet acauisition- /stack levitation time interval, transport the sheet 3 to the take away rolls, present the sheet 3 to the take away rolls such that the transfer is successful each cycle, and return the slide 2 to the initial position so that any variation in the stop position of the driving motor does not have any meaningful effects on the slide location.
