Figure 2-6 The Adjustable Screw
The screw above is used to control the width of the feeding gap. You can use a coin to adjust the gap easily. The width will become bigger by rotating the screw clockwise toward the biggest dot. Turn counterclockwise to decrease the gap.

To fine-tune the feeding gap, do the following:
(1) As shown in the figure below, make sure that the Banknote Processing Wheel is on a smooth surface.
Figure 2-9 The Direction of Wheel Rotation to Take the Jammed Bill
(2) Turn off the auto counting feature.
(3) Insert one banknote into the gap between the rollers to check if the banknote can be inserted smoothly, as shown in the following.

Figure 2-11 Using a banknote to check the gap between the rollers
(4) If the banknote is hard to insert, that means the feeding gap is too small. Rotate the screw clockwise until the banknote can be inserted smoothly. If the feeding gap is so large that two or more banknotes can be inserted into the feeding gap, please rotate the screw counterclockwise until the gap can just allow one banknote at a time.
(5) Use the banknote to check the other sides of the gap between rollers, to make sure the banknote can be inserted into both sides of the feeding gap smoothly.

The IMC01 needs different gaps for different currencies but otherwise should stay consistent. Having the correct feeding gap adjusted will ensure smooth operation as well as a trouble-free experience. You may need to do some trial and error before getting it perfectly smooth.
You may also wish to make his adjustment over time, When the banknotes are not fed smoothly through the machine or several error messages are occurring often such as Bill Double Error, Chain Notes Error, or Half Notes Error.
Other reasons that might require readjusting the feeding gap are:
- The counting of new or mint condition bills.
- The counting of poor or badly deteriorated bills.
- Polymer notes and paper-made notes counted together.
