Abstract

While stacker drawer 10 is collecting documents 20, it is attached to vertically movable platform 30. Stud 12 depends from 10 and abuts against latch 32 which is pivotably mounted to 30. This prevents 10 from being pulled inadvertently relative to 30 as documents are stacking. When platform 30 reaches its lowermost position, fixed stud 40 pivots 32 out or the way of 12 to permit 10 to be moved relative to 30. Additionally, shouldered studs 14 drop through holes, not shown, in plate 51 attached to slidable rail 52. This slides within rail 54.

Document Stacker with Drawer

While stacker drawer 10 is collecting documents 20, it is attached to vertically movable platform 30. Stud 12 depends from 10 and abuts against latch 32 which is pivotably mounted to 30. This prevents 10 from being pulled inadvertently relative to 30 as documents are stacking. When platform 30 reaches its lowermost position, fixed stud 40 pivots 32 out or the way of 12 to permit 10 to be moved relative to 30. Additionally, shouldered studs 14 drop through holes, not shown, in plate 51 attached to slidable rail 52. This slides within rail 54.

Thus, in the lowered position, drawer 10 is ready to become attached to rail
52. Studs 14 become latched relative to plate 51. Such occurs when drawer 10 is pulled to the left because spring 60 is able to shift keeper 61 to the right as the same moves away from stationary stud 70. This normally holds 61 in a position to receive studs 14 through holes 62. Backplate 15 is attached by bracket 16 to rail 52 and thus moves with 10 when the same is pulled out to the left.

This arrangement enables easy unloading of documents 20 and essentially prevents these from being spilled during both the stacking and unloading process.
