Aligning Device For Bi Width Documents

Documents 10 are manually inserted in a document chute formed by upper and lower plates 15 and 20 so as to come into position for a printing or other like operation.

When documents 10 are of one predetermined width, they are automatically aligned against fixed guide 25 which extends upwardly from 20. Floating guide 30 is movable in a vertical direction. It is restrained against movement in either a horizontal or lateral direction by 15 which is apertured to receive 30. Camming surface 35 is engaged by documents of one predetermined width and urges the same against guide 25 to bring the documents into alignment.

Wider documents do not engage surface 35 but rather engage camming surface 40 and raise 30 upwardly so as to slide underneath 30. In this instance, the wider document is manually urged against guide 25.

Guide 30 functions to automatically align manually inserted documents of one width and still permit the insertion of documents of a wider width. This apparatus has utility in bank teller terminals where the majority of documents are passbooks of one width.
