Abstract

Shown above is a schematic diagram of the major components in a paper feed module. The module contains two paper cassettes 10 and 12, unload tray 14, paper feed mechanisms 16 and 18, and three pair of transport rollers 20, 22 and 24. Paper sheets can be moved from one of the cassettes 10 and 12 to a rotatable drum 26, held on the drum in some manner, and subsequently unloaded from the drum to the tray 14. Each of the cassettes is positioned near an entry chute 28 or 30. An exit chute 32 is provided between the drum 26 and unload tray 14.
