Abstract

An escrow is a mechanism that collects currency in one place and then feeds the currency, as a bundle, either to a machine user or to a reject bin if an error has been detected in the feeding of currency to the escrow. For proper feeding of the currency from the escrow, and to provide an aesthetically pleasing bundle of currency to the machine user, it is desirable that the money in the escrow be edge aligned. This disclosure envisions that currency will be stacked vertically on edge by a tined stacker wheel or other mechanism. The back plate against which the money is stacked is mounted on cantilever leaf springs so that it is free to oscillate in the plane of the plate. A belt-driven jogger wheel is also mounted to the back plate.

Currency Escrow With Jogger

An escrow is a mechanism that collects currency in one place and then feeds the currency, as a bundle, either to a machine user or to a reject bin if an error has been detected in the feeding of currency to the escrow. For proper feeding of the currency from the escrow, and to provide an aesthetically pleasing bundle of currency to the machine user, it is desirable that the money in the escrow be edge aligned. This disclosure envisions that currency will be stacked vertically on edge by a tined stacker wheel or other mechanism. The back plate against which the money is stacked is mounted on cantilever leaf springs so that it is free to oscillate in the plane of the plate. A belt-driven jogger wheel is also mounted to the back plate. The jogger wheel has an offset weight causing an imbalance and therefore imparts a cyclical sinusoidal force to the jogger plate, causing it to vibrate. As money is stacked against the substantially vertical vibrating plate by the transport, the motion of the plate assists gravity in stacking each sheet of currency directly on the bottom of the escrow compartment so as to provide a bottom edge aligned bundle of currency.
