This embodiment is applied to a CR machine. FIG. 1 is a perspective view showing how a used prepaid card automatic discrimination processing device according to the present embodiment is attached to a CR machine. As shown in the figure, the automatic discrimination processing device I is attached to the front of a pachinko ball lending machine II disposed between adjacent pachinko machines (not shown). At this time, the card entrance 1 of the automatic discrimination processing device I and the card entrance 2 of the pachinko ball lending machine II communicate with each other in a straight line.

FIG. 2 is a cross-sectional view showing the automatic discrimination processing device I according to the present embodiment, and FIG. 3 is a vertical cross-sectional view thereof. As shown in both figures, the automatic discrimination processing device I has a casing 3 as a housing. The casing 3 is provided with a card entrance 1 of a prepaid card, and communicates with the card entrance 2 of the pachinko ball lending machine II in a straight line. That is,
In the casing 3, the card entrance 1 to the card entrance 2
The shutter 4, the cutter 5, the sensor 6, the rollers 7, 8, and the sensor 9 are disposed in this passage from the card entrance 1 side in this order in the horizontal direction. .

The shutter 4 normally opens the card entrance 1. On the other hand, after inserting the prepaid card, the card entrance 1 is closed while the prepaid card is in the pachinko ball lending machine II. This function is available when the prepaid card is in the pachinko ball rental machine II.
Since the card-in-use lamp 10 of the II is turned on, it can be realized by detecting the lighting of the card-in-use lamp 10 by the sensor 11.

The cutter 5 has a rotary blade 5a and a fixed blade 5b. Of these, the rotary blade 5a has shafts 5c at both ends thereof.
The fixed blade 5 b is rotatably supported by a shart 12 fixed to the inner peripheral surface of the casing 3 via both ends, and both ends of the fixed blade 5 b are fixed to the chassis 12. Thus, the rotary blade 5a
In normal operation, the prepaid card is allowed to pass, but is rotated only when the used of the prepaid card is detected to cut the prepaid card with the fixed blade 5b. The detailed structure of the cutter 5 will be described later.

The detection that the prepaid card has been used is performed by the sensors 6 and 9. More specifically,
The hole for indicating that the prepaid card has been used is provided at a position (predetermined position) 30 mm from the front end in the discharge direction of the prepaid card from the pachinko ball lending machine II, so that the sensor 6 detects this front end. At the same time, the sensor 9 can detect that the prepaid card has been used by detecting the hole indicating that the prepaid card has been used. That is, it is possible to detect that the prepaid card has been used when the AND logic of the detection results of the sensors 6 and 9 is satisfied.

When the prepaid card is inserted, the sensors 6 and 9 detect the front end and the rear end of the prepaid card, respectively, and when the prepaid card is ejected, the sensors 6 and 9 detect the rear end and the front end of the prepaid card.

The rollers 7 and 8 are fixed to shafts 13 and 14 rotatably supported by the chassis 12.
The prepaid card is rotated while holding the prepaid card between the pachinko ball lending machine II and the pachinko ball lending machine II.

Transport motor 15, cutter driving motor 1
6 are fixed to the inner peripheral surface of the casing 3 and drive the rollers 7 and 8 and the cutter 5 via the gear in the gear box 17. The transport motor 15 is a drive source only for carrying the prepaid card into and out of the pachinko ball lending machine II, while the cutter driving motor 16 is used when cutting the prepaid card. At the same time as the driving source of the prepaid card at this time. Such a configuration is realized by devising the structure of the gear box 17.
The detailed structure of 7 will be described later.

The stocker 19 is provided below the cutter 5 and at the lowermost part of the casing 3, cuts by the cutter 5, and stores chips of the prepaid card that has fallen through the guide 20. It is composed of a translucent member so that the state of accumulation can be checked, and detachably attached to the casing 3 to discard the accumulated chips.

The control section 21 controls the entire automatic discrimination processing device I and is housed inside the casing 3.

FIG. 4 is a perspective view showing the relationship between the rotary blade 5a of the cutter 5 and the prepaid card 22. As shown in the figure, the rotary blade 5a is similarly formed with one blade 5e obliquely formed by fixing both ends to the disk portions 5d at both ends and a 180 ° phase difference so as to form a counterweight of the blade 5e. It has a counterweight 5f fixed to the disk portion 5d, and is configured such that a space between the blade 5e and the counterweight 5f is normally a part of a passage communicating with the card entrances 1 and 2 at normal times. That is, the prepaid card 2
Unless it is detected that 2 has been used, the rotary blade 5
a maintains a phase such that a space between the blades 5e and 5f becomes a part of a passage communicating with the card entrances 1 and 2.

FIGS. 5 and 6 are explanatory views showing the relationship between the cutter 5, the sensors 6, 9 and the rollers 7, 8, and FIG. 5 is a plan view of the prepaid card 22 during cutting.
FIG. 6 is a side view of this while passing through the prepaid card. In both figures, the same parts as those in FIGS. 1 to 4 are denoted by the same reference numerals.

As shown in both figures, the distance L between the sensors 6 and 9 is
Is adjusted according to the distance between the front end of the prepaid card 22 in the discharging direction from the pachinko ball lending machine II and the hole for indicating that the prepaid card 22 has been used. Accordingly, if the prepaid card 22 has been used, when the sensor 6 detects the front end of the prepaid card 22, the sensor 9 detects a hole indicating that the prepaid card 22 has been used. That is, in this case, the AND logic of the detection results of the sensors 6 and 9 is established. When it is detected that the prepaid card 22 has been used, the rotary blade 5a of the cutter 5 rotates in the direction indicated by the arrow in FIG. 5 and acts on the prepaid card 22 with the fixed blade 5b. And shear it.

On the other hand, when the sensor 6 detects the front end of the prepaid card 22,
In the case where the hole for indicating that the second card 2 has been used is not detected, the rotary blade 5a is in a state as shown in FIG. The card is ejected through the card entrance 1 by the drive of. At this time, the card busy lamp 10 of the pachinko ball lending machine II is turned off when the prepaid card 22 is discharged from the pachinko ball lending machine II.
The sensor 11 detects the turning off of 0, and the shutter 4 is kept open.

FIG. 7 is an explanatory view conceptually showing the planar positional relationship of the gears in the gear box 17. In FIG.
6 are given the same reference numerals.

This part will be described with reference to FIG. The gear 23 is connected to the transport motor 15 and is rotated by the drive of the transport motor 15. The gear 24 is usually the gear 2
Gear 2 which is fixed to the shafts 13 and 14 of the rollers 7 and 8 and which is driven by the transport motor 15.
The shafts 13 and 14 of the rollers 7 and 8 rotate in conjunction with the rotation of the roller 3. In such a state, the prepaid card 22 is transported by the rollers 7 and 8.

The intermittent gear 26 is connected to the cutter driving motor 16 and is fixed to the shaft 5c of the rotary blade 5a so as to be rotated by the driving of the cutter driving motor 16. The intermittent gear 26 partially has teeth that mesh with the gear 25, and thus intermittently meshes with the gear 25 as it rotates. The gear 25 is configured to be rotatable together with the shaft 27, and is also configured to mesh with the gear 24 at the same time.

Here, when the cutter driving motor 16 is driven, the meshing state between the gears 23 and 24 is released. More specifically, the gear 23 transmits the driving force of the transport motor 15 and the T-shaped lever 2.
9 is secured to a shaft 28 rotatably supported on one side. The T-shaped lever 29 is rotatable by attaching a central portion thereof to a shaft 30. Normally, the T-shaped lever 29 occupies a position shown by a solid line in FIG. It moves to the position shown by the dashed line in the figure by the force.

Therefore, the gear 23 and the gear 24 mesh with each other in the normal state where the switching solenoid 32 is not biased, and the mesh between the gear 23 and the gear 24 is released when the switching solenoid 32 is biased. . When the engagement between the gear 23 and the gear 24 is released as described above, T
The lower end of the L-shaped lever 29 in the figure enters between the teeth of the gear 24, restricting the rotation of the gear 24 in the counterclockwise direction and allowing only the clockwise rotation. This is to prevent the gear 24 from reversing due to the reaction force when the prepaid card 22 is sheared.

Thus, when the prepaid card 22 is inserted into the pachinko ball lending machine II and when the unused prepaid card 22 is ejected from the pachinko ball lending machine II, the transport motor 15 is driven via the gears 23 and 24. Rollers 7 and 8 rotate. At this time, the rotation directions of the rollers 7 and 8 are opposite when the prepaid card 22 is inserted and when the prepaid card 22 is ejected.

On the other hand, when it is detected that the prepaid card 22 has been used, the switching solenoid 32 operates to release the mesh between the gear 23 and the gear 24. In this case, the cutter driving motor 16 is driven to rotate the intermittent gear 26 and the rotary blade 5a. As a result, the rotary blade 5a rotates continuously, while the gear 25
6 intermittently meshes with each other, so that the rollers 7 and 8 rotate intermittently via the gear 24 to convey the prepaid card 22 intermittently. Thus, the prepaid card 22, which is intermittently conveyed, is sheared by the continuously rotating rotary blade 5a.

The micro switch 33 detects the phase of the gear 23. That is, the micro switch 33
Operates when the projection 18 fixed to the intermittent gear 26 abuts, detects that the intermittent gear 26 has reached the phase shown in the figure, and ensures that the rotary blade 5a is always engaged, that is, allows the prepaid card 22 to pass. (A state shown in FIGS. 4 and 6). Cutter driving motor 1
The operation of the microswitch 33 is a condition for stopping the switch 6.

The shutter solenoid 34 is configured to close the shutter 4 when energized. That is, the sensor 1
1 is energized while the lighting of the card busy lamp 10 is being detected, but if it is detected that the prepaid card 22 has been used even when the lighting of the card busy lamp 10 is turned off. Is continuously energized. When the sensor 11 detects that the card-in-use lamp 10 is turned off, and it is not detected that the prepaid card 22 has been used, the shutter is deactivated and the shutter 4 is opened.

In the above embodiment, the T-shaped lever 29 and the switching solenoid 32 form a drive system clutch by the transport motor 15, but the present invention is not limited to this.
There is no particular limitation as long as the drive power of the transport motor 15 can be intermittently transmitted to the gear 24.

The operation of the present embodiment as described above is as follows. Insert the prepaid card 22 into the card entrance 1,
When the sensor 6 detects the leading end of the prepaid card 22 in the insertion direction, the transport motor 15 is driven. As a result, the rollers 7, 8 are driven via the gear box 17,
The prepaid card 22 is conveyed by these rollers 7 and 8 toward the card entrance 2 of the pachinko ball lending machine II. When the sensor 9 detects the rear end of the prepaid card 22 in the insertion direction, the driving of the transport motor 15 and the rollers 7, 8 is stopped. In this state, the prepaid card 22 is inserted into the pachinko ball lending machine II.

The prepaid card 22 is a pachinko ball lending machine II
When the sensor 9 detects the leading end of the prepaid card 22 in the discharge direction, the transport motor 15 is driven in a direction opposite to the direction in which the prepaid card 22 is inserted. As a result, the rollers 7 and 8 are driven via the gear box 17, and the prepaid card 22 is transported toward the card entrance 1 by the rollers 7 and 8. When the sensor 6 detects the leading end of the prepaid card 22 in the discharge direction, if the sensor 9 does not detect a hole indicating that the prepaid card 22 has been used, the shutter 4 is opened and the card entrance 1 From the prepaid card 22.

On the other hand, when the sensor 6 detects the leading end of the prepaid card 22 in the discharge direction, and when the sensor 9 detects a hole indicating that the prepaid card 22 has been used, the shutter 4 is continued. Then, the prepaid card 22 is sheared. That is, the cutter driving motor 16 is driven while the driving of the transport motor 15 is stopped. This allows the rotary blade 5a
Is rotated to shear the prepaid card 22 with the fixed blade 5b, and the prepaid card 22 is intermittently conveyed and the same shearing operation is repeated. The sheared chips fall and are stored in the stocker 19.

FIG. 8 is a block diagram showing a control system of the above embodiment. The above-described control is performed by the control unit 21 in the block diagram.

The internal structure of the automatic discrimination processing device I is not limited to the above embodiment. An embodiment having a different internal structure will be described as another embodiment. The same parts as those in the above embodiment are denoted by the same reference numerals, and different parts will be mainly described.

FIG. 9 shows an automatic discrimination processing device III according to this embodiment.
FIG. 10 is a longitudinal sectional view of FIG. As shown in both figures, the automatic discrimination processing device III has a casing 3, which is a housing, similarly to the above-described embodiment, and is attached to a CR machine similarly to the above-described embodiment. is there. As in the above-described embodiment, the casing 3 is provided with a card entrance 1 for a prepaid card, and communicates with the card entrance 2 of the pachinko ball lending machine II in a straight line. That is, a prepaid card passage extending from the card entrance 1 to the card entrance 2 is formed in the casing 3 in the horizontal direction. In this passage in this embodiment, a shutter 4 and a sensor 4 are arranged in this order from the card entrance 1 side.
1, rollers 42 and 43, a sensor 44 and a sensor 45 are provided.

The shutter 4 normally opens the card entrance 1. On the other hand, after inserting the prepaid card, the card entrance 1 is closed while the prepaid card is in the pachinko ball lending machine II. This function is available when the prepaid card is in the pachinko ball rental machine II.
Since the card-in-use lamp 10 of the II is turned on, it can be realized by detecting the lighting of the card-in-use lamp 10 by the sensor 11. In this respect, there is no difference from the above-described embodiment.

Two sets of rollers 42 provided at two places in the conveying direction of the prepaid card 22 are fixed to a fixed chassis 46.
The same two pairs of rollers 43 are fixed to shafts 48 and 49 rotatably supported by a movable chassis 47, respectively, and the prepaid card 22 is sandwiched and fixed between the rollers 42 and 43 via a belt 50. It is transported along the guide 51 fixed to the chassis 46 in the left-right direction in FIG. The transport motor 52 supplies the driving force during the transport. That is, the transport motor 52 is fixed to the inner peripheral surface of the casing 3 and drives the roller 42 via a gear in the gear box 53. When the prepaid card 22 is inserted into the card entrance 1, its tip is

When the prepaid card 22 is ejected from the card entrance 2 while the prepaid card 22 is conveyed toward the card entrance 2 by driving the card 2
5 is detected, the transport motor 52 is driven and the rollers 4
The prepaid card 22 is transported toward the card entrance 1 by driving the cards 2 and 43.

When the prepaid card 22 is ejected, if the sensor 45 detects the leading end of the prepaid card 22 and the sensor 45 does not detect the hole indicating that the prepaid card 22 has been used, the shutter 4 is opened and the prepaid card 22 is inserted into the card entrance. 1 and return to the user while the sensor 45
Detects the hole indicating that the prepaid card 22 has been used, the shutter 4 is continuously closed, and the leading end of the prepaid card 22 is transported in the discharging direction until the sensor 41 detects the same. Is opened to drop the prepaid card 22 downward.

That is, the cross section of the fixed chassis 46 and the movable chassis 47 is rectangular and the rollers 42,
43, a chassis for forming a passage for the prepaid card 22 is formed. In this chassis, a movable chassis 47 is rotatably mounted on a fixed chassis 46 via a hinge 54 at an upper portion thereof, and a lower portion thereof can be opened.

The configuration of this portion will be described in detail with reference to FIGS. The movable chassis 47 is normally closed with its lower portion in contact with the lower portion of the fixed chassis 46 as shown in FIG. 9, but detects that the prepaid card 22 has been used in the manner described above, and When the sensor 41 detects the leading end of the prepaid card 22, the opening / closing motor 55 is driven and the eccentric roller 57 fixed to the shaft 56 is rotated to rotate about the hinge portion 54 as a rotation center. As shown, the lower part is separated from the fixed chassis 46 to open this part.

As shown in FIG. 11, the other end 58b of a spring 58 having one end 58a fixed to the inner peripheral surface of the casing 3 is fixed to the lower portion of the movable chassis 47. In this case, the movable chassis 47 is normally brought into contact with the fixed chassis 46 by applying a rotating force to rotate the movable chassis 47 counterclockwise in FIG.
On the other hand, the peripheral end surface of the eccentric roller 57 has a movable chassis 47.
It is configured to abut on a contact projection 47a protruding from a lower part of the base. The shaft 56 to which the eccentric roller 57 is fixed is rotatably supported by the fixed chassis 46. Thus, when the eccentric roller 57 is rotated by the drive of the opening / closing motor 55, the contact projection 47a is pushed leftward in FIG. 11 on the peripheral end surface against the spring force of the spring 58, and fixed to the lower portion of the movable chassis 47. The contact with the chassis 46 is released to open. The open end is detected when the eccentric roller 57 contacts the microswitch 59 and operates the microswitch 59. The normal state, that is, the state where the movable chassis 47 is in contact with the fixed chassis 46 is detected by operating the micro switch 59 with the eccentric roller 57 abutting on the micro switch 60.

Thus, the opening operation of the movable chassis 47 by the opening / closing motor 55 is stopped by the operation of the microswitch 59.
