automatic document feeder (ADF)

An ADF enables you to make copies without lifting the platen. You load the set of original documents into the feeder, press start, and let the copier move each sheet on and off the platen. Thus instead of placing each sheet one-by-one onto the glass, the ADF reduces time and effort. A typical ADF can hold between 1 and 20 sheets at a time.
