Accommodation is carried out by stacking the banknotes, such as a bundle of bills may banknotes of various denominations, in the office 10 to accommodate that can accommodate up to 500 banknotes. These banknotes are separated from one another and pass through the upper channel 13’ for transportation by the detector means 11 and to the guide means (means for changing the direction of motion) 13’ through which banknotes are sent down to the lower channel 13 for transportation.

Detector means 11 are located close to the branch 10 and are designed for separation of counterfeit banknotes, banknotes poor quality and other bills. Under the separation here understand the grading process, during which the banknotes that have passed the detector means, "mark" any reasonable method that allows these banknotes to sort out as "fake", "bad" or "received" during further transportation.

The means 14 for storage, similar to some other similar CPE 141 and two rolled drum 142 and 143. The leading edge of the banknote received in the means for storing includes a sensor 144, in which the response includes three engines, each of which acts to move the corresponding drum 141-143. Bill performed along the trajectory length of about 120 mm between the belts, which roll along on the drum 141, with sufficient space to accommodate about 500 banknotes. As banknotes roll on the drum, the signal about the bills sent to the processor 12 that the information about the number could be stored in the sequence of receipt of banknotes. Banknotes are taken out means 14 for storage by the filing of the engine impulses which urge the reel to rotate in the opposite direction.

The arm 19 is provided to move along the transportation channel near means 14, 15 for storing adjustment provisions of those bills, which could be twisted or displaced in the transverse direction during transport.

Each of styling products 16, 17 includes laying the wheel, which are gaining a lot of banknotes in the storage compartment in packs. When the stack contains a given number of banknotes, its capture by a pair of levers and served down in the so called the th material (plastic). The banknotes that you want to pack, served down in the pocket, consisting of two pieces of plastic of the same length and width, one on each roll. Pieces of plastic are pressed to each other around the stack and weld interconnected along their edges using a wire heated to the molten state in Teflon®. This known technology described in more detail in U.S. patent No. 5031379.

Using the processor 12 controls the transport of banknotes poor quality channel 13 transportation to nodes 16-18 for the accumulation and packing of these banknotes. This site contains styling tool 16 and the node 18 for packaging.
