Abstract

In a sheet sorter of the angularly-indexible bin type which uses wire or other tensile members to determine the maximum angular spacing between adjacent dividers forming the bins, there is a difficulty in ensuring the exact alignment of any bin with the sheet entry slot. This is because the wire stretches or deforms, and because the dividers flex under load or with use.
