Job Separator

Job separators 10 are placed in file feed 20 to permit one group of cards 21 to enter into card hopper 25 separate from a second group of cards 22. Card weight 23, placed upon the top of each group 21 and 22 of cards, is adapted to enter hopper 25 to aid in the feeding of cards from such hopper.

Separator 10 has a pair of depending feet 11 and 12. The latter come to rest upon support pads 26 flanking feed belts 27 of 20. This arrangement enables separators 10 to straddle the cards feeding into 25. Thus, the cards of group 21 and associated card weight 23 can enter 25 unencumbered by the weight of cards 22. This tends to eliminate feeding problems arising from deck bounce and skewed cards and still keeps the card groups separate.

Wedge-shaped elements 13 facilitate easy withdrawal of separators 10 from file feed 20. Hole 14 functions as a hand grip. Relief 15 provides clearance for card weight 23 as it feeds from 20 into hopper 25.
