Magnetic Card Removal Mechanism

This scheme permits the removal of densely packed magnetic cards.

The cards 10 are positioned between flexible stationary spacers 12. When a card 10a is ejected from the pack, the spreader bail 14, rotating around pivot point 16, enters the pack and bends the cards 10 and spacers 12 on one side of the ejected card 10a away from the ejected card 10a. An engage roll 18 now moves toward the ejected card 10a and squeezes it to the card feed roll 20. The engage roll 18 then rotates clockwise while the feed roll 20 rotates counterclockwise to pull the selected card 10a from the pack.
