Abstract

This article describes an apparatus for providing a tailored angular relationship between the pneumatic pick boots and the top of the document stack in a recirculating automatic document feeder system. This allows a much larger latitude in the design and placement of the document stack support component(s), and empirical test results indicate improved document picking reliability with reduced double sheet picks. Refer to the figure for nomenclature and component identification.
