Abstract

In an automatic teller machine of the bill circulation type wherein the bills put into the machine by a consumer for depositing are stored in a bill storing box for subsequently using them to put out of the machine to another consumer for dispensing, a mechanism is provided for feeding the bills into and out of the bill storing box using a rotary drum with suction and friction ability. Referring to Fig. 1 and Fig. 2 which are an elevation view and a side view of the mechanism, respectively, the bills 2 can be stacked in a bill storing box 1 on a support plate 3 which is fixedly linked with a timing belt 4 controllably driven by a motor. The feed-in and feed- out of the bills in the box 2 is made by a suction drum 5 provided with a pair of larger diameter portions, each having five ducts 6 and a rubber-applied surface 7.

Bill Feed-In/Feed-Out Mechanism for Bill Storing Box in Automatic Teller Machine of Bill Circulation Type

In an automatic teller machine of the bill circulation type wherein the bills put into the machine by a consumer for depositing are stored in a bill storing box for subsequently using them to put out of the machine to another consumer for dispensing, a mechanism is provided for feeding the bills into and out of the bill storing box using a rotary drum with suction and friction ability. Referring to Fig. 1 and Fig. 2 which are an elevation view and a side view of the mechanism, respectively, the bills 2 can be stacked in a bill storing box 1 on a support plate 3 which is fixedly linked with a timing belt 4 controllably driven by a motor. The feed-in and feed- out of the bills in the box 2 is made by a suction drum 5 provided with a pair of larger diameter portions, each having five ducts 6 and a rubber-applied surface 7. The ducts 6 lead to a stationary (not rotatable) suction block 8 through parallel ducts 9 (one of which is shown in Fig. 2). The side surface of the drum 5 is slidably kept in contact with the suction block 8. The suction block is provided with two ducts 10, 11 which are normally connected to a suction pump so that, when the drum is rotated, the five parallel ducts 9 can be successively connected to the ducts 10, 11. In the bill feed-in operation, the bills 2 in the box 1 are moved to the position shown in Fig. 1 by the motor driving the timing belt 4 to move the support plate 3 down. At this time, an arm 12 is lifted up by a solenoid to make space over t...
