Abstract (en)

[origin: WO0024662A1] Sheet stacking apparatus comprises a sheet store having a base (40) and at least one upright member (50) adjacent the base to define a wall of the store. A transport system (2) delivers sheets to the sheet store, which the at least one upright member (50) is adjustable relative to the base (40) to accommodate different size sheets. The apparatus further comprises a control system (11, 24, 35, 54, 63) including an adjust mechanism for adjusting the position of the first upright member, and a controller for receiving information defining the size of sheets to be stacked in the sheet store, determining the position that the first upright member should take up, and actuating the adjust mechanism accordingly.
