Abstract

In an automatic teller machine of the bill circulation type wherein the bills put into the machine by a consumer for depositing are stored in a bill storing box for subsequently using them to put out of the machine to another consumer for dispensing, a mechanism is provided for feeding the bills into and out of the bill storing box using a rotary drum with suction and friction ability. Referring to Fig. 1 and Fig. 2 which are an elevation view and a side view of the mechanism, respectively, the bills 2 can be stacked in a bill storing box 1 on a support plate 3 which is fixedly linked with a timing belt 4 controllably driven by a motor. The feed-in and feed- out of the bills in the box 2 is made by a suction drum 5 provided with a pair of larger diameter portions, each having five ducts 6 and a rubber-applied surface 7.
