This post is the details with each steps about the Epson WF-C579, WF-C529 Optional Paper Cassette Unit Mechanism
Lift-up mechanism (Optional cassette)
This mechanism lifts the paper loaded on the Paper Cassette 2 up to the paper pickup position. This mechanism is driven by the drive force of the Lift Motor.
The Lift Motor’s drive force is transmitted via the Lift-up Gear Group to this mechanism and rotates the Lift-up shaft.
Lift Motor => Compound Gear A => Compound Gear B => Compound Gear C =>Spur Gear 55.2 => Spur Gear 30 => Spur Gear 30 => Lift Up Sector Gear 40T => Lift-up mechanism
ASF Mechanism (Optional cassette)
This mechanism picks up paper from the Optional Cassette, and conveys it up to the intermediate feeding mechanism of the printer, and the same retard separation method as that for the Paper Cassette of the printer is adopted.
The ASF mechanism is configured by the pickup mechanism and the intermediate feeding mechanism, and operates by the driving force of the ASF Motor.
– Pick-up mechanism:
On the shafts of the Pick-up Roller and Separation Roller, the One Way Clutch is mounted to always rotate in a set direction (paper feed direction) only. When the ASF Motor rotates the opposite direction of paper feeding, the drive force is cut off by the One Way Clutch, so neither the Pick-up Roller nor Separation Roller rotates.
– Intermediate feeding mechanism
A One Way Clutch Gear is provided in the middle of the drive path in the intermediate feeding mechanism, and the Vertical Feed Roller rotates in only one fixed direction (paper feed direction). (If it is not in the paper feed direction, it performs idling and no rotation.)
