A typical press-feeding situation involves an air gap between the detector and the first sheet in the stack or an air gap between the top two sheets, and these air gaps reduce the detector's effectiveness. Understanding the capabilities of the detector and the limitations imposed by imperfect conditions can help stampers set up an effective double-sheet detector system.

Almost everyone has experienced a double-sheet problem. Copiers, printers, and fax machines sometimes feed two sheets, which then jam the machines and have to be removed. While two sheets of paper seldom cause major harm to office equipment, two sheets of metal can cause major damage to tools and...
