Abstract

A sheet corrugator, e.g., for a document sheet restack transport or a copy sheet output transport. Instead of conventional corrugating cylindrical rollers there are provided two gradually converging and then intersecting (interdigitated) sets of belts 1 and 2 provided by elongate rubber "O1I rings running between spaced pulleys. Better sheet acquistion is provided by a V1 shaped entrance chute 3 for gentle, gradual sheet acquisition. A longer transport path with continuous sheet cor-rugation is optionally provided by then running the two belt sets in parallel while maintaining their intersecting planes on to a further set of pulleys, as in Figure 2 and its cross-section in Figure 3.
