Abstract

In U.S. Patent 3,008,709, a pure rolling wave generator is used in a circular fashion to feed sheets from a stack. The present article discloses a method and apparatus wherein a pure rolling wave generation applied to a stack of sheets, in a circular fashion but around a pivot point, is used for feeding sheets in seriatim from the stack. The pivot point allows the sheet to rotate but not translate and allows larger separation between sheets for a given shingle time.
