Claim of US Patent No. 10,189,658

1. A stacking apparatus for stacking value documents which are individually transported to the stacking apparatus by a transport system along a transport path at a transport velocity, the stacking apparatus comprising:a stack deposit device for receiving a stack of the value documents, and
a braking device for braking the value documents which were individually transported to the stacking apparatus by the transport system, wherein the braking device is arranged immediately before the stack deposit device along the transport path of the value documents,whereinthe braking device has a transport shaft and a braking shaft oriented parallel thereto, between which the respective value document is transported through,
on the transport shaft there is mounted at least one driving roller, which is firmly mounted on the transport shaft, and there is mounted at least one roller rotatably supported on the transport shaft, and
on the braking shaft there is mounted at least one cam roller, which is firmly mounted on the braking shaft, and there is mounted at least one eccentric roller,
wherein the at least one eccentric roller has an eccentric core firmly mounted on the braking shaft in an eccentric position, and
wherein a cam of the cam roller and the eccentric core of the eccentric roller are mounted on the braking shaft at a mutual angular offset such that by a rotation of the braking shaft it can be attained that
the cam of the cam roller can be brought into engagement with the opposing rotatably supported roller so that a value document transported through therebetween is clamped between the cam of the cam roller and the rotatably supported roller.
