Abstract

Documents 10 of varied weight are exited leftwardly from an exposure station 11, by rolls 12 that are oriented at an angle 13 from the vertical. The document 10 thus is projected upwardly against flexibly pivoted hold-down flap 14. Tapered section 15 of flap 14 guides the document 10 to the end wall 16 where the document leading edge 17 just lifts, and is pinched downwardly by, the trailing edge 18 of the flap 14. The document 10 thus is brought reliably to rest on the top of stack 19 against end wall 16 of receiving tray 20.
