Flexible media dispenser

Image Number 8 for United States Patent #6715750.

A dispenser for dispensing flexible media such as cut sheets (1) from a stack has a rotatable separating member (4) which engages and reverse buckles one end of the top sheet (2) so that that end is lifted away from the stack and positioned between transport rollers (9, 10). The transport rollers (9, 10) are driven independently from the separating member (4) so that multiple sheets may be separated from the stack before being transported. The frictional engagement between the separating member (4) and the stack varies as the separating member rotates, so that only one sheet is separated with each rotation. The center of the top sheet (2) is held against the stack by a holding member (3) so that the top sheet buckles only over part of its length.
