Adjustable Currency Cartridge Guides

Because of the various sizes of paper currency or notes throughout the world, it is desirable to design a currency cartr that contains adjustable guides to accommodate the different size currencies in its respective country of use. Naturally, if one designs a cartridge with fixed guides set for each of the different size currencies, it adds to the manufacturing cost of the product.

The Figure shows a currency cartridge 1 having only two parts which the customer can easily adjust, without resorting to tools, to conform to his type of currency. The two parts are flexible low friction plates 2 & 3. One end of each of the plates 2 & 3 is inserted in the first slot of the slotted back plates 4 & 5. The other end of the plates 2 & 3 is inserted into another slot depending upon the size of the currency. When the guide plates 2 & 3 are secured in the slots, a rigid guide for the currency is formed.

The customer in using a cartridge of this design, for a particular currency, would look at a chart to determine which slot of the back plates 4 & 5 the other end of the plates 2 & 3 should be inserted.
