Title: Reversible document manipulating device

Abstract: A document handling device (12) comprises a first endless conveyor (6), which is arranged to be intermittently driven in a first direction of feed (F) and has drivers to fetch documents (2) at document discharging stations (5) and put them together into sheaves (3). The documents are to be manipulated, downstream of the document discharging stations (5) seen in the direction of feed (F), in sheaves at a first sheaf discharging station (8), such as a document manipulating unit, in which the sheaves of documents (3) from the first conveyor (6) are inserted into envelopes (4) placed on a second endless conveyor (9), which is parallel to the first conveyor (6) and driven synchronously therewith. The first conveyor (6) is intermittently drivable also in a second direction opposite to said first direction of feed and a second sheaf discharging station (14), such as a stapling or plastics coating unit, is arranged upstream of the document discharging stations (5) seen in said first direction of feed (F).
