Abstract

One of the problems associated with a sorter is the time required to unload the collated sets. To ease this un-loading chore an accordian-like fan-fold folder 1 is util-ized to define the sorter bins. The folder is mounted on a moving frame 2 which advances each of the bins past a sheet delivery device 3. The bins are sequentially ad-vanced for receiving sheets therein to provide collated sets, After the desired number of sets has been made the entire fan-fold bin assembly 1 is removed from the frame 2 and may be carried to the individual's location. A new fan-fold bin assembly 1 is then placed in the frame 2 for the next sorting operation.
