Title: Assembly for conveying stacked documents

Abstract: An assembly for conveying stacked documents includes a conveying surface extending along the conveying path and a conveyor roller that is suspended opposite to the conveying surface for movement between positions at different distances from the conveying surface. In the operating condition, the conveyor roller exerts a press-on force. The assembly also includes a transmission for driving the conveyor roller. The transmission is coupled with the conveyor roller in such a manner that if a couple is exerted on the conveyor roller in the conveying sense, a force directed against this press-on force is exerted on the conveyor roller. As a result, the temporary increase of the couple and the temporary reduction of the circumferential speed of the conveyor roller is limited.
