Paddle Wheel

The described paddle wheel is a highly elastic transport roller. It has a larger transport radius than a standard roller and can be used to clamp a record carrier.

Paddle wheel 1 consists of highly elastic paddles 2 which are arranged around a rotating axis 3. Paddle wheel 1 interacts with a transport roller 5 on the one hand and a stacker platform 8 on the other. Record carrier 7, introduced into transport path 6, is moved by paddle wheel 1 against stacker platform 8 and against a longitudinally movable transport belt 9 mounted on platform 8. At the same time, record carrier 7 is moved against stop 4 fixed to transport belt 9. In this manner, several record carriers can be placed on top of each other and aligned at stop 4.
