Abstract

In a bill cartridge for an automatic bill dispenser, the bills 1 horizontally stacked in the cartridge are serially fed out by a rotary feed-out roller 2 and a support roller 3 cooperating with a constant force applied against these rollers. To ensure the positive feed out of the bills, a mechanism is provided for keeping the relation of F1 > F2 (F=F1+F2), even if the thickness at the lower part of the stacked bills becomes lower than that at its upper part(usually by the printing ink), by compensating the difference of the thickness therebetween with a spring. In Fig.

Bill Pressing Mechanism for Cooperating With a Feed-Out Roller in a Bill Cartridge

In a bill cartridge for an automatic bill dispenser, the bills 1 horizontally stacked in the cartridge are serially fed out by a rotary feed-out roller 2 and a support roller 3 cooperating with a constant force applied against these rollers. To ensure the positive feed out of the bills, a mechanism is provided for keeping the relation of F1 > F2 (F=F1+F2), even if the thickness at the lower part of the stacked bills becomes lower than that at its upper part(usually by the printing ink), by compensating the difference of the thickness therebetween with a spring. In Fig. 1, as the constant force F is applied at the lower half of a pressure plate 4 through an arm 5, F1 is provided through a hinge 6 and the lower part of an auxiliary plate 7, and also F2 is provided through the upper part of the plate 4, a spring 8 and the upper part of the plate 7. Thus, the variation of the thickness of the stacked bills is compensated by the spring 8, so the constant forces F1 and F2 can always be applied against the rollers 2 and 3, keeping F1 > F2. In Fig. 2, an alternative mechanism is shown in which, as a part of F, the constant force F1 is provided through an arm 9, the lower part of a pressure plate 10, a spring 11 and an auxiliary plate 12 to the bills 1 and, as the other part of F, the constant force F2 is provided through the upper part of the plate 10, so that the variation of the bills' t...
