C.P. Bourg’s BSF Sheet Feeder is a near-line sheet feeder that automatically transfers paper from different manufacturers’ printers and stack carts while maintaining integrity of collated sets for production finishing. It features an air-table design that allows the operator to load and center stacks of collated sets from stack carts common to Canon, HP Indigo, Kodak NEXPRESS, Océ, Xerox, and other manufacturer’s printers. The unit is equipped with two feeding compartments that can accept pile heights of 20" for primary content and up to 6.3" for covers or other content, and it can feed up to 15,000 sheets/hour to various C.P. Bourg finishing modules. It detects double sheets or missed sheets from both compartments, and detects when either stack bin is empty. Paper sizes can range from finished products smaller than a CD-ROM booklet to 14.33x22.5". Optional barcode scanning with a flexible positioning scanner allows users to read a bar code placed anywhere on the sheet.
