An image forming unit 53 that forms an image read by the document reading unit 52 with respect to 2A, and a sheet conveying apparatus 1 that separates one uppermost sheet 2A from the sheet bundle 2 and conveys the image to the image forming unit 53. Yes.
  The uppermost sheet 2A conveyed by the sheet conveying device 1 is conveyed by a conveying roller pair 58, and the toner image formed by the image forming unit 53 is transferred by the transfer device 59. The toner image is thermally transferred by the fixing device 60. The paper discharge roller pair 61 discharges the paper to the paper discharge tray 62.
  Hereinafter, the details of the sheet conveying apparatus 1 will be described with reference to FIGS.
  2A and 2B, the sheet conveying apparatus 1 stacks the sheet bundle 2, and the sheet conveying direction of the sheet bundle 2 with the vicinity of the end near the upstream side in the sheet conveying direction as a rotation center. A bottom plate 11 that can be tilted so that the downstream end is raised, a bottom plate tilting member 13 that tilts the bottom plate 11, a drive device 31 that drives the bottom plate tilting member 13, and a detection unit that detects the drive amount of the drive device 31. 32 and a detection unit 33 that detects that the end of the sheet bundle 2 on the downstream side in the sheet conveyance direction has reached a predetermined position.
  Further, the sheet conveying apparatus 1 includes a feeding unit 14 that separates the uppermost sheet 2A of the sheet bundle 2 and conveys it in the direction indicated by the arrow B. The feeding unit 14 can be tilted to a position above the end of the sheet bundle 2 on the downstream side in the sheet conveyance direction, where the end of the downstream side in the sheet conveyance direction reaches a predetermined position to separate and convey the sheet bundle 2. Is provided. That is, the feeding unit 14 is provided at a predetermined position so as to be freely tilted.
  The image forming apparatus 51 includes a guide plate pair 15 that guides a sheet conveyed from the feeding unit 14 of the sheet conveying apparatus 1 at a position immediately after the feeding unit 14 (near the end on the downstream side in the sheet conveying direction). ing. The guide plate pair 15 includes an upper guide plate 15b and a lower guide plate 15a. The lower guide plate 15a is arranged in parallel with the sheet conveying direction, and the upper guide plate 15b is a lower guide plate. It is arranged so as to be inclined so that the distance from 15a becomes wider toward the upstream side in the sheet conveying direction. Thus, by tilting the upper guide plate 15b, the interval between the upper guide plate 15b and the lower guide plate 15a is widened, and the uppermost sheet 2A conveyed from the sheet conveying device 1 passes outside the guide plate pair 15. Can be prevented.
  As shown in FIGS. 3A and 3B, the feeding unit 14 separates the uppermost sheet 2A from the stacked sheet bundle 2 and conveys the separated uppermost sheet 2A. Conveying rollers 17a and 17b that convey to the outside of the apparatus 1, a driving device 37 that drives the conveying rollers 17a and 17b, and guide plates 18a and 18b that guide the conveyance of the uppermost sheet 2A inside the feeding unit 14. It is equipped with. The guide plate 18a is disposed at a position below the uppermost sheet 2A being conveyed, and the guide plate 18b is disposed at a position above the uppermost sheet 2A being conveyed. Further, the guide plate 18a and the guide plate 18b are arranged in parallel to each other, and the space between the guide plate 18a and the guide plate 18b constitutes a conveyance path.
  The feeding unit 14 is coaxially disposed on the side of the feeding unit 14 in the sheet conveying direction, that is, on both sides in the sheet width direction, and is conveyed upstream from the nip formed by the conveying rollers 17a and 17b in the sheet conveying direction. On the path, the rotation shafts 19a and 19b having an axis center at the center of the contact width between the separation unit 16 and the sheet bundle 2 in the sheet conveyance direction side, the drive device 34 that rotates the rotation shaft 19a, and the drive device 34 And a detection unit 36 for detecting the drive amount.
  As shown in FIG. 4, the bottom plate 11 is inclined by the bottom plate inclined member 13 driven by the driving device 31 every time the remaining amount of the sheet bundle 2 decreases, and the sheet conveyance of the uppermost sheet 2A of the sheet bundle 2 is performed. Control is performed so that the downstream side in the direction has a constant height. For this reason, the inclination angles of the bottom plate 11 and the sheet bundle 2 increase each time the remaining amount of sheets in the sheet bundle 2 decreases.
  As shown in FIG. 5, the sheet conveying apparatus 1 includes a control unit 30 connected to the detection units 32, 33, and 36 and the driving devices 31 and 34.

The driving amount of the driving device 34 for making the inclination angle of the conveying path equal to the inclination angle of the bottom plate 11 is calculated. Then, the control means 30 drives the drive unit 34 while the detection unit 36 detects the drive amount by the calculated drive amount, and tilts the feeding unit 14. The correspondence between the driving amount of the driving device 31 and the inclination angle of the bottom plate 11 and the correspondence relationship between the driving amount of the driving device 34 and the inclination angle of the feeding unit 14 are determined in advance in the control means 30.

  Next, the control unit 30 starts detection by the detection unit 36 (step S7), drives the drive device 34 to tilt the feeding unit 14 (step S8), and the amount detected by the detection unit 36 is determined in step S6. It is determined whether or not the calculated drive amount α has been reached (step S9). If this determination is YES, the drive of the drive device 34 is stopped (step S10), and the detection by the detector 36 is terminated (step S11). ). On the other hand, if determination of step S9 is NO, it will return to step S8 and will continue the drive of the drive device 34. FIG.
