The drawing shows a document stacker for stacking documents, which are presented at high speed with the document width in the vertical plane.

Document stacker 10 includes a housing 12 having a bend 13 to prevent document 14 from jamming between helix 18 and housing 12. MYLAR* strip 16 is positioned to decelerate document 14 and urge the document 14 into helix 18.

Helix 18 rotates in a direction to cause documents 14 to move towards document stops 20. Stops 20 contact the edge of document 14b and cause the document to be flipped into the horizontal document pocket 22. * Trademark of E.
