Abstract

In a document copying machine where a document is held in a stationary manner while being processed, high throughput can be obtained through the use of an automatic document feed device. However, in order to keep document velocity at a reasonable level when moving the processing station, movement of a second original from a staging location is begun prior to exit of the first original from the processing station.
