Title: DOCUMENT SCANNER WITH AUTOMATED DOCUMENT ALIGNMENT SYSTEM
Abstract:
Embodiments are directed at a systems, methods, and apparatuses for automatically aligning the lead edges of a document stack loaded in a scanner system. An automated jogger system includes feeder gate elements (44) which are driven forward and backwards in an oscillating motion. This motion causes the documents in the stack (12) to slide between each other, causing the documents to move and rotate towards the feeder gate elements, aligning the lead edges of the stack prior to being fed into the document scanner.
