PAPER MONEY COUNTING MECHANISM
Frank J. Callen, Clanton, Ala.
Application February 20; 1936, Serial No. 64,975
1 Claim. (Cl. 271-27)
This invention relates to a machine or mecha
nism for counting paper money.
It is aimed to provide a novel means minimiz
ing the danger of paper money or bills sticking
5 together and a plurality being erroneously
counted as one.
It is further aimed to provide a novel structure
‘it/‘herein the bills are removed by suction, con
veyed through a distance su?icient to enable ad
10 hering bills to become dislodged and then to be
stripped.
It is still further aimed to provide such a
structure wherein the counted bills are ?led or
stacked.

Various additional objects and advantages will
become apparent from a consideration of the de
scription following taken in connection with
accompanying drawings illustrating an operative
embodiment.
In said drawings:
Figure 1 is a view of the apparatus in side ele
vation;
Figure 2 is a front end elevation of the appa
ratus;

Figure
3 is a longitudinal sectional View
through the stacking drawer and its mounting;
Figure -’l is a detailed section taken on the line
4-4 of Figure 1;
Figure 5 is a detailed vertical sectional view
through part of the apparatus;
Figure 6
a horizontal sectional View taken
on the line 6—~5i of Figure 5;
Figure 7 is a detailed section taken on the line
'l-1 of Figure l; and
Figure 8 is a detailed section taken on the line
8——8 of Figure 1.
Referring speci?cally to the drawings wherein
like reference characters designate like or similar
parts, it designates a suitable stand or support
40 having bearings ii in which a shaft I2 is jour
nalled and which shaft is adapted to be manu
ally turned through manipulation of a crank l3.
A drum or Wheel'is provided at 14. Such drum
or wheel 54 has a hub l5 keyed to the shaft
(it 12 as at l6 so as to rotate therewith. A casing
II is rigid with the hub and divided by the latter
into four (4) non-communicating compartments
or chambers E8 in each of which a suction fan
i9 is mounted, being driven for instance by an
O! O electric motor 2%. Suitable connections are made
with a source or sources of electric energy to con
tinuously drive each of the motors ‘20 and asso
ciated fans I9.
Extending from each chamber 18 rigid with
55 the casing II and hub, is a hollow tube or spoke
25. Said spokes 2! at their outer ends are rigidly
connected to a ring or rim 22 at the outer surface
or periphery of which as the tubes 2! are opened.
The drum or wheel is adapted to move clock
wise to convey bills or paper currency or the Cr
like 23 from a stack and which bills are adapted
to be stripped from the periphery of the rim 22 by
a chute 24, preferably of channel shape as shown
in Figure 4, and curved, down which chute, the
bills or the like fall by gravity and are caught
in slidably removable drawer 25 carried by a
frame
the chute and frame being supported
in any desired manner as by means of brackets
27 connected thereto and also connected to the
frame iii.
A displaceable spring member 28 on
the frame 26, normally prevents displacement of
the drawer 25.
The bills or other articles to be counted are
disposed within a receptacle 29, resting on a
vertically movable false bottom 30 and normally 20
resting on an inwardly extending ?ange 3| at
the lower edge of receptacle 29. In addition, a
closure 32 is provided at one end of the recep
tacle for lowering to permit the bills 23 to be
replenished. This closure is secured in place N) Ul
by a spring hinge at 33, the spring urging the
closure to and normally maintaining it in closed
position. A bracket 34 supports the receptacle 29
on frame work ill.
As suction through the tubes 2! is adapted to U
remove a bill from the pile as the wheel or drum
rotates, a projection 35 extends inwardly from
the rim 2?; adjacent each tube 2| such pro
jections are adapted to engage an actuating
member 38 of a conventional counter 37 suitably 1
supported on the frame work Ill, such counter
thus being operated every time one of the pro
jections 35 engages member 36 and thus four
times for each revolution of the rim, and being
designed to count up to any desired number, for
instance 50, which is the number of bills usually
packaged in a bank.
In the operation of the device, handle I3 is
turned to rotate the wheel or drum.
While one
hand is used for the foregoing purpose, the
other hand presses upwardly on the false bottom
3!} so that as each tube 21 passes over the pile
of bills 22, it will by suction remove the upper
most bill maintaining it by such suction in con
tact with the periphery of the rim 22 until the
bills reach the chute 24 which strips the bills
from the rim 22 so that they fall or slide down
the chute 24 into the drawer 25. During such
rotation of the wheel drum, it is clear that the
motors 20 are energized and that the suction 55
2
2,107,977
fans H! are in operation. When the operator
has removed the desired number of bills as in
dicated by the counter 31, for instance 56, he
Li
stops turning the crank l3 and removes or
bundles the counted pile of bills in the drawer
25. It is clear that since the bills travel a sub
stantial distance to the Wheel while exposed, any
bills adhering to the bills in direct contact with
the periphery of the drum, will fall therefrom.
Various changes may be resorted to provided
they fall Within the spirit and scope of the in
vention.
a rotating element having a rim of annular form,
a hub having compartments therein, hollow
spokes leading from the hub and being in com
munication with the compartments and open at
the periphery of the rim, means for creating a
suction Within the compartments and through
the spokes serving to cause articles to adhere
to the periphery of the rim, a shaft for said hub,
and a plate closing one side of the hub and
mounting said means for creating a suction, said
chambers being in communication with the at
mosphere through said hub and plate.
I claim as my invention:—
A structure of the class described comprising
