2.2.4 Paper Feed Mechanism

The paper feed mechanism of this printer consists of the integrated ASF (Auto Sheet Feeder)
mechanism, tractor mechanism, PF (Paper Feed) motor, front/rear PE (Paper End) sensors, PF roller,
paper guide mechanism, paper eject unit, and PF motor drive disengage mechanism. The torque from
the PF motor drives the paper load mechanism, paper feed mechanism and paper eject mechanism.
While the printer is not printing, the PF motor drive disengage mechanism switches the torque from the
PF motor to the pump mechanism, which depends on the CR position. While the paper feed mechanism
is driven, the torque from the PF motor is transmitted via PF motor pinion gear and disengage gear to
the PF roller., where the torque is then divided into 2 directions. One is transmitted to the paper eject
mechanism via the gear train in the paper guide assembly. The other is transmitted to the ASF
mechanism via the transmission gear.
The tractor drive gear train is set at the left end of the PF roller. Table 2-4 and Table 2-5 shows the
specification for the PF motor and PF motor drive terms, respectively. Figure 2-5 illustrates the paper
feed mechanism.
