Abstract

In an automated teller machine installation, a customer, through the use of a magnetic card or other devices, withdraws from his account a certain amount of money or currency. The teller machine in order to perform its function contains a cartridge which is stacked with paper money or notes. Generally, the cartridge, which has rigidly mounted guide rails to retain the notes in a neat stack within the cartridge, must be re-designed to accommodate different size money that is used throughout the world. This results in the costly operation of manufacturing different size cartridges to accommodate the different size paper money. In Figs. 1 and 2, there is disclosed a universal adjustable guide rail to accommodate all sizes of paper money or notes to be dispensed from the cartridge.
