The mechanism comprises a suction unit that helps overcome the electrostatic attraction between the current page and its following page, and also supports the page while lifting it. It comprises a metallic strip having a suction nozzle at each end, and a rubber stub protruding in the middle. Image processing is heavily simplified. This technique is applied to hardbound books also.
