3.2.2 Paper supply
The feed roller picks up a few sheets or one sheet of paper from the paper tray every time it
is rotated and feeds it to the separation roller.
Regist actuator rear
Regist actuator front
The main motor drive power is transmitted to the gears, and the feed roller and separation
roller are rotated. Then, the paper is gripped between the separation roller and separation
pad and separated into individual sheets.
The paper drawn out of the paper tray pushes against the regist front actuator, and the
absence of paper is detected by the actuator movement. The edge actuator detects the end
of the paper fed.
