Abstract (en)

[origin: EP0816272A1] The device has a stack holder chamber (22) with a guide (14-20) on all four sides, and a stack support (24,26). This is positioned in the area of the lower guide ends, and moved into and out of the stack holder chamber by a horizontal movement. The stack support has at least one preferably telescopic cylinder (28,30), or a thrust chain, and at least one flexible support belt (36,38). The belt passes over a slidable deflection pulley (32,34). To move the stack support in and out, the lower belt section (37,39) is drawn out of the chamber, while the upper section is tensioned between the pulley and a fixed point outside the chamber.
