1,159,165. Carbon transfer-paper mechanism. INTERNATIONAL BUSINESS MACHINES CORP. 15 Feb., 1967 [18 March, 1966], No. 7164/67. Heading B6F. [Also in Division B8] A single-pass carbon transfer ribbon mechanism, mounted on a movable carriage 14 and comprising a capstan drive 24, 25 for intermittent feeding of a carbon transfer ribbon 26 drawn off a supply spool 21, is provided with a tensioning means for the ribbon wound on a take-up spool 22, which is mounted on a clutch connectable shaft 27, the means including a ratchet and pawl mechanism actuated in response to the tension in the ribbon as it is drawn off the supply spool 21 by capstan drive 24, 25. The capstan drive, which is actuated intermittently by the movement of the carriage 14 in letter-spacing direction, pulls a constant increment of the ribbon 26 past the printing station 13, whereby the ribbon is tensioned such that an arm 37 engaged by the ribbon and provided with a pawl 34 is pivoted by the ribbon to disengage the pawl from the ratchet wheel 31 and cause a length of the ribbon 26 to be drawn off from the supply spool 21, the relaxation of the tension in the ribbon causing the pawl 34 to re-engage the ratchet wheel and prevent over feed.
