Description

Paper-feeding apparatus of office machine

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION 1. Field of the Invention The present invention relates to a paper feeder for office equipment such as copiers, printers, faxes, and the like, and more particularly, to eliminate skew feeding and paper jams by eliminating the drag force generated by the drive roller during line feeding. The present invention relates to a paper feeder for an office equipment that prevents and improves the paper feeding accuracy of a feed roller.

In general, office equipment such as copiers, printers, and fax machines include a paper feeder for feeding paper into an image forming unit.

As shown in FIG. 1, the paper feeding device 10 generally includes a paper cassette 20 on which paper P is loaded, and a frame 11 for receiving and detaching the paper cassette 20. And a pickup unit 30 which is provided with respect to the paper cassette 20 in the frame 11 and picks up the paper P loaded in the paper cassette 20, and also in the paper cassette 20 in the frame 11. And a conveying unit 40 which is installed in relation to and conveys the paper P picked up by the pick-up unit 30.

The pickup unit 30 supports the pickup roller assembly 31 through the pickup roller assembly 31 supported by the frame 11 and fixed to be able to pivot about the support shaft 35, and the power transmission gear train 37. It consists of a pickup roller drive motor 33 to drive.

The pickup roller assembly 31 picks up the paper P between the pickup roller 34 for picking up the paper P, a pickup roller gear (not shown) coaxially formed with the pickup roller 34 and the pickup roller 34. One-way power transmission unit (not shown), such as a spring clutch, which transmits rotational force only in a direction to rotate, and one end of the pickup roller shaft 34a so that the pickup roller 34 contacts the paper P at a predetermined pressure by its own weight. The other end has a housing 36 fixed to the support shaft 35 so as to be pivotable.

As shown in Fig. 2, the transfer unit 40 includes a drive and drive backup rollers 41 and 42 for transporting the paper P picked up by the pickup roller 34 of the pickup roller assembly 31, and the drive. And a feed roller (not shown) for transferring the paper P conveyed by the drive backup rollers 41 and 42 to an image forming unit (not shown).

The drive roller 41 is a drive roller gear train (not shown) having a one-way power transmission unit (not shown) such as a spring clutch so that the drive roller 41 is driven in the direction of picking up the paper while picking up the paper while idling during the paper feeding. It is configured to be connected to the pickup roller drive motor 33 through.

Looking at the operation of the conventional paper feeder 10 configured as described above are as follows.

First, when a printing command is given, the pickup roller 34 is clockwise by the pickup roller assembly 31 of the pickup unit 30 via the power transmission gear train 37 connected to the pickup roller drive motor 33. Is rotated.

As a result, the paper P is picked up by the clockwise rotational force of the pickup roller 34 while being in contact with the pickup roller 34. At this time, the paper P is driven only by the frictional resistance of the friction buckle or dam 39 installed in the paper feed cassette 20 and the rotational force of the pickup roller 34. 41, 42).

Thereafter, the paper P is conveyed toward the feed roller and the feed backup roller by the drive roller 41 connected to the pickup roller drive motor 33 through the drive roller gear train.

Subsequently, when the paper P operates a paper sensor (not shown) located near the feed roller, the control unit (not shown) causes the paper P to be aligned by the nip between the feed roller and the feed backup roller. After a predetermined time has elapsed, the pickup roller drive motor 33 is stopped and the feed roller drive motor (not shown) is operated to stop the pickup roller 34 and drive the feed roller.

At this time, the pickup roller 34 and the drive roller 41 which are subjected to the clockwise rotational force by the paper P are idle by the one-way power transmission part of the pickup roller assembly 31 and the drive roller geartrain, respectively.

Thereafter, the paper P is continuously conveyed to the image forming portion by the feed roller, and discharged after completion of printing in the image forming portion.

However, in the conventional paper feeder 10, since the pickup roller assembly 31 and the drive roller geartrain each have a one-way power transmission unit, the feed roller is fed to the feed roller drive motor to pick up the paper P and then transport it. When driven by the feed roller, the feed roller is not only the weight of the pickup roller assembly 31 acting on the paper P and the pressure between the drive and the drive backup rollers 41, 42, but also the pickup roller assembly 31 and the drive roller. A braking force corresponding to the force for idling the pickup roller 34 and the drive roller 41 against the one-way power transmission of the gear train is received.

In this way, the braking force acting on the feed roller not only reduces the accuracy of the paper feed of the feed roller, but also causes the skew feeding or the paper jam in severe cases.

In addition, the conventional paper feeder 10 has a vector direction in which the pickup roller assembly 31 acts on the paper P by weight and the like, and the rotational force of the pickup roller 34 acting on the paper P when the paper is picked up. Since it is configured to act in the opposite direction, there was a problem in that the rotational compounding force of the pickup roller 34 is lowered at the time of paper pickup and the paper pickup efficiency of the pickup roller 34 is lowered.

When the paper pick-up efficiency of the pick-up roller 34 is lowered, a pick-up failure occurs such that the paper P is not picked up by the pick-up roller 34 or a jam occurs during paper pick-up.

The present invention has been made to solve the above problems, the object of the present invention is to improve the paper feed accuracy of the feed roller by eliminating the braking force generated by the drive roller during the paper transfer and to prevent skew feeding and paper jams To provide a paper feeder for the office equipment.

Another object of the present invention is to feed the paper machine of the pickup roller assembly to improve the paper picking efficiency of the pickup roller by causing the pickup roller assembly to act on the paper and the direction of the vector of the rotational force acting on the paper when picking up the paper in the same direction To provide a device.
