Abstract

Typical Bottom Vacuum Corrugation Feeders (BVCF), such as in U.S.Patent 4,462,586, are limited to a minimum paper size because the vacuum chamber must always be completely covered to generate enough vacuum for effective paper transport. This is especially true for side registration in the paper tray itself. Also, problems arise in these side registered recirculating document handlers in the levitation ability of the air knife for larger stock sizes.
