Abstract

As shown, two pin-feed belts 10 and 12 are provided, having approximately the angular relation shown. In each belt, for approximately 1/2 the length of the belt, is a series of pins 14 which match up with the pin feed holes in a continuous form 16, which is to be stacked. The remaining half of each belt has a series of holes located at the same intervals as the pins. The first one of the Pins 18 in each belt has a hook on the leading edge, which extends slightly outside the normal involute pin profile.

Refold Reminder Stacker

As shown, two pin-feed belts 10 and 12 are provided, having approximately the angular relation shown. In each belt, for approximately 1/2 the length of the belt, is a series of pins 14 which match up with the pin feed holes in a continuous form 16, which is to be stacked. The remaining half of each belt has a series of holes located at the same intervals as the pins. The first one of the Pins 18 in each belt has a hook on the leading edge, which extends slightly outside the normal involute pin profile.

The document is installed so that the hooked pin 18 on the right belt 12, for example, engages the first hole after the fold to pull the form along with the belt as it moves in a downward direction. This places the fold over to the right side of the stacker. The hooked pin 18 of the left belt 10 will engage the first hole after the next fold to pull the form to the left, the hooked pins releasing when strippers 20 engage the form and it rides up on them.
