■ Cassette paper feed
● Roller separation method
This product employs the separation roller method to avoid multi-feeding.
This method prevents multiple sheets from being fed by the driven separation roller. The
separation roller is driven by the pickup roller.
<When normally operated>
The separation roller is driven by the pickup roller to feed paper. By this, the separation roller
rotates in the paper feed direction.
<When multiple sheets are fed>
Multiple sheets weaken friction between rollers, decaying the driving force conveyed from
the pickup roller to the separation roller. This product has the mechanism to regulate the
separation roller rotation, which stops the roller rotation at multi-feeding under weaker driving
force conveyed from the pickup roller. This enables to avoid multi-feeding.
The figure below shows the multi-feeding prevention mechanism employed in this product.
