This is a transport for receiving deposit envelopes and transporting them under positive control to a deposit drawer, wherein the transport belts are spring loaded in a manner to accommodate wide variations in envelope thickness.

Materials, such as an envelope containing currency, checks, coins, and a deposit slip, are inserted through entry slot 1 in door 2. Switch 3 senses the presence of the envelope, and provides a signal that causes motor 4a to drive capstan 5 and an endless belt 9, which follows the path defined by idle rollers 27, 6, 7, 4, and drive roll 5. Belt 10 which follows the path defined by rollers 4, 7, 13, and 26 is driven by motor 4a through a set of gears, not shown, attached to capstans 4 and 5, and engages belt 9 at the deposit envelope transport path between rollers 7 and 4. Alternatively, belt 9 may be driven by direct attachment of motor 4a to, for example, capstan 4.

Each of belts 9 and 10 may comprise a plurality of belts, only one of which is visible in the side view illustrated. The belts may be elastic to accommodate the movement of roller 7 or spring loaded idlers may be used at position 26 and 27.

Capstans, or rollers 4, 5, 6 and 13 are securely fixed to the frame, not shown. Capstan 7 is mounted on link 8, rotatable about the axis of roller 6 and spring 11 loaded to deflect belt 9 downwardly into belt 10 in the path between rollers 4 and 13, deflecting it by angle 25. Capstan 26 is adjustable vertically so as to ten...
