Abstract

The above arrangement shows a two speed drive for a friction belt feed, which drive assists in moving continuous forms from a carriage to a stacker. At low speeds, such as when line spacing or effecting short ejects, the speed of the belt drive motor is slightly faster than carriage speed.

Friction Drive For Stacking

The above arrangement shows a two speed drive for a friction belt feed, which drive assists in moving continuous forms from a carriage to a stacker. At low speeds, such as when line spacing or effecting short ejects, the speed of the belt drive motor is slightly faster than carriage speed.

When the carriage operates at high speed for a longer skip, the forms tend to buckle in the buffer zone and the accumulation of paper operates a microswitch. Closing this switch activates the motor to increase its speed, drawing the forms out of the buffer until the switch again opens when the accumulation of paper is removed.
