Abstract

The device is for the aligned transport at uniform speed of flat-lying envelopes of uniform size. The belt 2, running on a series of rolls 6 at a velocity V2, constitutes the aligning edge. The envelopes arrive one by one sliding over a stationary bottom plate 10 at an angle with the belt 2 at a velocity V1 which is smaller than V2.

Envelope Aligning Device

The device is for the aligned transport at uniform speed of flat-lying envelopes of uniform size. The belt 2, running on a series of rolls 6 at a velocity V2, constitutes the aligning edge. The envelopes arrive one by one sliding over a stationary bottom plate 10 at an angle with the belt 2 at a velocity V1 which is smaller than V2.

When the belt 2 seizes the envelope corner facing it, the envelope is rotated into complete alignment with the belt. The companion belt 3, running at speed V3 equal to V2, is urged towards the belt 2 by its spring loaded rolls 9. The envelopes are seized between the belts, the spring loaded rolls allowing for small variations in envelope width.
