Transportation Device for Bank Notes

      This article describes a device for the transportation of bank
notes or other thin sheets within cash dispensing or similar
machines.

      It is very important, that cash dispensing machines and also
the components within that machines have a very high reliability.  In
cash dispensing machines the bank notes (8) are stored in a safe and
must be transported to the cash gate slot.  Normally, such
transporting
devices are existing of two belts (1), pullies (2), optical sensors
(3),
guide plates (4), a frame (5), and an electrical motor (6).

      The described device uses three or more belts instead of two
belts, whereby one of the belts (7) is mounted in or about in the
middle of the transportation path.

This has the following advantages:
  o  Bended bank notes will be straightened by the middle belt.
  o  Bank notes will be guided more reliable without jam with
      protruding edges like optical sensors.
  o  Small sheets (tickets) can be transported with the same device
as
      larger sheets.
  o  Guide plates can be omitted.
