Abstract

In a vacuum corrugation feeder (VCF), optimization of the air knife pressure improves feeding reliability, minimizes the noise level, and increases the motor life. I t has been found that feedability can be sensed by measuring the pressure at a point in the center of a paper tray. By pressure transducer 10 shown in the figure and comparing this pressure to a reference pressure given by:
