Abstract

Fig. 1 shows a loading tray assembly which may be used to load a stack of bank notes into the hopper of a cash dispenser, such as the IBM 2984 Cash Issuing Terminal. Generally, such dispensers contain a hopper containing a stack of bank notes. Under computer control, bank notes are removed from the hopper and dispensed to a user of the machine.

Loading Tray Assembly for Cash Dispenser

Fig. 1 shows a loading tray assembly which may be used to load a stack of bank notes into the hopper of a cash dispenser, such as the IBM 2984 Cash Issuing Terminal. Generally, such dispensers contain a hopper containing a stack of bank notes. Under computer control, bank notes are removed from the hopper and dispensed to a user of the machine.

It is convenient to have a simple device which allows used bank notes to be stacked outside the dispenser before loading on to the hopper. This is particularly true for dispensers operated outside a bank building, for example in a supermarket or department store, where it is desired to use cash taken in at the store's tills.

As shown in Fig. 1, the loading tray assembly consists of two separable parts, shallow tray 1 and frame 2 locatable in tray 1. Slider 3 is secured in slot 4 running along the length of frame 2. Tray 1, frame 2 and slider 3 are all formed from sheet metal such as aluminum. Fig. 2 is a cross-sectional detail showing how slider 3 is secured in slot 4. Thus slider 3 is normally free to slide, but a slight pivoting movement causes slider 3 to jam in slot 4.

To load the tray assembly, frame 2 is located in tray 1. Bank notes, not shown, are stacked within the space between end wall 5 and slider 3 with their long edges resting on tray 1. When a desired number of bank notes has been stacked within the assembly, slider 3 is slid towards wall 5 to compress partially the b...
