Abstract

Copies or originals which have been processed and are exiting a processor 10 in ordered fashion (1, 2, 3, ... N) are collected face up. The sheets are fed into a rotating coil having convolutions approximately the size of sheets and are moved vertically so that sheets are collected under the preceding sheet, thereby main-taining their order. A side edge guide plate may be used to keep sheets from skewing, and a ring may be attached to the top end of the coil to maintain the bottom of the collecting stack in a smooth plane.

Copies or originals which have been processed and are exiting a processor 10 in ordered fashion (1, 2, 3, ... N) are collected face up. The sheets are fed into a rotating coil having convolutions approximately the size of sheets and are moved vertically so that sheets are collected under the preceding sheet, thereby main- taining their order. A side edge guide plate may be used to keep sheets from skewing, and a ring may be attached to the top end of the coil to maintain the bottom of the collecting stack in a smooth plane.

In the case of a copier with bidirectional scanning, both sets would be face up in a stack with a common edge contiguous in each stack receiver which could make stapling or binding easily achievable.
