Abstract

A paper-guide assembly is oriented to both deliver sheets to and receive sheets from a paper-handling apparatus. The guide assembly pivots from a first position for delivering sheets to a second position for receiving sheets, while simultaneously blocking further sheets from being delivered to the paper-handling apparatus.

Paper Guide Assembly for Delivering and Receiving Sheets

A paper-guide assembly is oriented to both deliver sheets to and receive sheets from a paper-handling apparatus. The guide assembly pivots from a first position for delivering sheets to a second position for receiving sheets, while simultaneously blocking further sheets from being delivered to the paper- handling apparatus.

When delivering sheets, the guide assembly assumes the position depicted in Fig. 1. Guide member 11 is pivoted to allow a sheet to pass over wire guides 13 and under guide 15 to be delivered in the direction of arrow 17 to a paper- handling apparatus. Once the sheet has been delivered, guide member 11 is pivoted to its upward position, depicted in Fig. 2.

As thus positioned, a sheet delivered from the paper-handling apparatus in the direction of arrow 19 passes under the guide member 11 and over the wire guide 13. When the wire guide is thus positioned, sheets delivered in the paper- feed direction of arrow 21 are cammed into the abutment 23 of the guide member 11 by bow 25 of guide member 11 and thus prevented from being deflected toward the paper-handling apparatus.
