Abstract (en)

[origin: EP0839747A2] The sheet stack separation method uses separation foils (24) supplied from a separation foil magazine (22) and inserted in the sheet stack. The foils indicate the separation points between the successive sheet sets delivered by an office machine. The separation foils are supplied from the magazine in response to control signals provided at the end of each sheet set. There are at least two different types of separation foil being used. They have recognition marks and/or are of different colours to be recognised by a sensor in the foil magazine which provides control signals for the foil type selection.
