Bank Check Stacker

As forms of varying lengths, such as checks, move down through a chute 1 in the direction of the arrow, they pass into the bite between a belt 2 and a roll 3 that is spring-pressed against 2.

While the checks are in this bite, they deflect two nose like kicker springs 4 and 5 counterclockwise relative to a pivot 6. When the trailing edge of the check drops below the bite, springs 4 and 5 are released. Spring 4 kicks the trailing edge of a long check leftward out of the path of the succeeding check. Spring 5 does the same for shorter checks.

Spring 7 serves as a deflector and brake to cause the check to come to a halt without rebounding and be compacted against preceding checks stacked against a resiliently yieldable inclined support 8.
