Abstract

A computer form or fanfold (CF) web ejected from an RDH is fed upwardly toward a restacking tray on top of the sorter under a pivotable arm baffle resting with a normal force on the CF web in the range of 1 - 1% oz. This force is light enough to allow the CF web to be fed UJ a ramp under this guide arm wrthout jamming (even though it 1s being pushed from a downstream position rather than pulled) yet provides a sufficient hold-down force to restrain the CF web from buckling its burst lines during this uphill feeding.

A computer form or fanfold (CF) web ejected from an RDH is fed upwardly toward a restacking tray on top of the sorter under a pivotable arm baffle resting with a normal force on the CF web in the range of 1 - 1% oz. This force is light enough to allow the CF web to be fed UJ a ramp under this guide arm wrthout jamming (even though it 1s being pushed from a downstream position rather than pulled) yet provides a sufficient hold-down force to restrain the CF web from buckling its burst lines during this uphill feeding.

The CF web is Eed into a tray which has a vertical rise at the entrance lip of the tray. From the top of this rise there was a vertical drop down into the base or bottom of the tray. The CF web was fed incrementally so that each seam of the fanfold (the burst line) IS stopped over this drop when the preceding segment of the web IS being copied on the copier. The weight of the web in this momentary stopping or stall thereby overcomes the beam strength for the web at that seam so that the web segment will tend to fold there and fall into the stack for rest ac k ing .
