Abstract

It is a common practice in copiers with multiple sorter bins for collating the copy output to have more than one vertically arranged set or stack of sorter bins. The present practice (regardless of the number of copies, and therefore bins, selected) is to first load all of the bins of the first bin set, from top to bottom, before using (loading) any of the bins of the second or subsequent bin sets.
