Tally Roll Stacking Device

When batches of individual documents are processed, data concerning these documents may be printed on a tally-roll by a tally-roll printer. When the processing of a batch of documents has been completed, the corresponding part of the tally-roll is attached to these documents for further processing.

For this application limited lengths of tally-roll web are to be accumulated in a receptacle 1 (Fig. 1). The web is transported by a driven shaft 2, cooperating with a pressure roll 3 consisting of a central core 4 with two rubber wheels 5, and plastic foam rolls 6 with a slightly larger diameter on the rest of the core (Fig. 2).

During transport between shaft 2 and rubber wheels 5, the former presses the web into the foam rolls 6, resulting in a spontaneous curling of the web, so that it coils up in receptacle 1 with low friction. To even further reduce the friction between web and receptacle wall, the cylindrical surface of the receptacle has ridges in the transport direction.
