T 0 all whom. it may concern.
Be it known that I, JOHN F. OHMER, a citizen of the United States, residing at Dayton, in the county of Montgomery and State of Ohio, have invented certain new and useful. Improvements in Printing Mechanism for Ticket Issuing and Audi ting Machines; and I do declarethe following to be a full, clear, and exact description of the invention, such as will enable others skilled in the art to which it appe'rtains'to make and use the same, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, and to the letters and figures of reference marked thereon, which form a part of this specification.
This invention relates to new and useful improvements in printing mechanism and is especially adapted for use in connection with ticket-issuing and auditing machines, such as is shown in my former Patent No. 974,511 of Nov. 1, 1910, from which the present application is divided.
The objectof the invention is to provide a printing mechanism for ticket issuing and auditing machines that will impart different feeding movements to the ticket and record strips, thereby economizing in the amount (if-paper used.
In setting forth the present improvements I have shown them associated with a ticketissuing and auditing machine as disclosed in the several drawings.
Referring to said drawings, Figure 1 represents a front elevation of the left side of the machinewith the casing and some of the parts removed. Fig.1 is a view of the right side of the machine, the same being a continuation of Fig. 1. Fig. 2 is a section on the line (I (Z of Fig. 1.

Fig. 9 is a view of the printed record for the ticket shown in'Fig. 8. .Fig. 10 is a view of tickets issued from a machine not havinga consecutive printing counter but'm which the tickets-are numbered before being placed in the machine. Fig. 11 is a view of the printed record of the tickets shown in Fi 10. Fig. 12 is a side elevation of the outside of the machine. Fig. 13 is a front elevation of the outside of the machine. Fig. 14 is a diagrammatic view of I the cash-counter ratchet and cam devices. Fig. 15. is a modi-. fication of the setting means forthe month and day printing devices. Figs. .16 and 17 are detail views of the station and priceprinting devices.
Throughout the specification and drawings, similar reference characters indicate corresponding parts.
Frame-cu0rb.Referring to Figs. 1 and 1". 1, 2, 3 and t designate plates between which the mechanisms of the machine, exclusive of the printing mechanism aremounted. These frames are attached to the rear plate 5 and bottom plate 6. The print ing mechanism is mounted in the plates 7, 8 and 9 at the bottom of the machine, which mechanism will be hereinafter more fully described.
.llanually set printing w7iccZs.-Extendiug through the plates 1, 2, 3 and 4: is a. shaft 10 upon which the various type wheels are mounted. These type wheels are in duplicate, the series for printing the ticket being on the left side of the machine as the operator faces it, and the series for printing the record being on the right side as the operator faces the machine. Near the ends of the shaft 10 are mounted duplicate month wheels 11 and 12, which are provided with gears 13 and 14-. These type wheels rotate in unison through gears 15 and 16 on shaft 17 which mesh with the gears 13 and 14. The shaft 17 is journaled in the plates 1, 2,
3 and t. Lying on the right side of the monthwheels 11 and 12, are duplicate day wheels 18 and 19 which are provided with gears 20 and 21. These wheels rotate in unison through means of gears -22 and 23 on shaft 24 similarv to the month wheels. Lyingnext'to the month and date wheels on both sides of the machine, are type wheels .25 and 26, which rotate in unison as they are both attached to the shaft 10. The wheel 26' on the right side of the machine is provided with a gear 27. These type wheels 25 and 26print on the face' of the ticket and the record, the class of ticket that is being issued, such-as aclergy, half fare, first class, second class, etc, and a-star'as will be seen from sheet 7 The type wheels 11, 12,18 and 19, and 25 and 26 are set from the outside of the machine by means of drums 28,
the outside of the plates 2 and 8 and pivoted on the shaft 10, are left and right consecutive number printing counters A and B. These counters have type wheels 37 and one i tooth transfer wheels 38 of well known type.
The transfer wheels 38 are mounted on the shaft 39. The type wheels 37 are held in printing alinement by springs 38. These counters A and B are actuated concurrently by means of the shaft 39, the unit actuating gears 41 of both counters being rigidly secured to said shaft. The means for actuating the printing counters A and B will be described in connection with the visible counters. Y
Destination type wheel setting mechanism. Mounted between the plates 2 and 3 and pivoted on the shaft 10, are duplicate type wheels 42 and 43, the peripheries of which contain printed characters representing the destination and the price of the ticket. The type wheels 42 and 43 may be each formed of four separate wheels 42, 42 42 and 42, on the periphery of one of which the stations are engraved, and upon the peripheries of the other three, blank surface spaces are provided, one for each station, and numerals to print the prices are engraved on the surface spaces of the three wheels. the numeral on one wheel to print i the units, the numeral on one wheel to prim the tens, and the numeral on one wheel to print the hundreds (or dollars). Holes are. drilled on the fiat side of each wheel including the station wheel.v The four wheels are fastened trgether with a pin on screw 42 which compels them to revolve together on the shaft 10. It is thus seen that in the event the prices are subsequently changed to a lesser or greater value, for example, nima 4.80 to Lima 4.85, it Will only be necessary to replace the first or unit wheel with a new wheel to print 5? in place of 0 and thereby the tens and dollar Wheels and the station wheels are preserved. "When this alteration is made, the corresponding pin 68, on one of the cams 69, 70
or '11, is also changed so that-the adding value of the will correspond with the fare. it 13 thus seen that price wheels are interchangeable. The price wheels or the engraved prices on the price wheels may be omitted from the combined type wheels 42 which print on the tickets, in which case the prices will be printed only on the ree 0rd. The wheels 42 and 43 rotate concurrently by means of the drum 44 and are set from the shaft 45 by means of the trans fer gears 46, 47 and 48 shown in Fig. 2.
Mounted on the-outside of the machine on the shaft 45 is a drum49; this drum indicates on its outer surface the different stations and the fare. 5O designates a pointer under which the drum 49 rotates and is in strumental in selecting the desired station when a ticket is to be issued. The type wheels 42 and 43 are held in a printing position by means of a roller 51 on the spring controlled bell crank lever 52*. The roller 51' engages serrations on the cash counter setting cam 70.
Total cash acumen-As before stated, the type station wheels are provided, in addition to the type denoting the station, with type denoting the cost of the ticket, and the object of the cash counter is to totalize the value of all the tickets issued. In the draw ings, I have shown means to add fares of three digits 001 to 9.99, but it will be understood that the scope of the cash counter may be enlarged by providing more counting wheels and actuatin mechanism.
Extending throug1 the upper portion of the machine, and having bearings 1n plates 2 and 3, is a shaft upon which is mounted a unit type wheel 51, a tens type Whel'59/ and a hundreds type'wheel 53. There is also upon this shaft a thousands and a tens of thousands type wheels 54 which are actuated from the hundreds wheel 53 by a one tooth transfer wheel or any other wellknown means. The type Wheels 51, 52 and 53 are actuated from the main actuating shaft 57. Each of the type. wheels 51, 52 and 58 are provided with a ten tooth pinion 55 which meshes with a thirty tooth gear- 56 .on the main actuating shaft .37. Attached to the gear 56 is a thirty toot-h ratchet 58, the teeth of which are engaged by a pawl 59 on the arm 60. The arm 60 is rigidly secured to the main actuating shaft 57.
The pawl 59 has a pin 61 extending there from and engaging a setting cam 62 which is also pivoted on the shaft 57. The cam 62 is provided with a segment gear 63 which meshes with a ten tooth rack 64 which slides in guides 65 on the-rear plate 5. The racks 64 are connected to the [levers 65 by links 66/ The levers 65 are'pivoted on the shaft 39 and have projections 67'which engage pins 68 .omthe cams 69, 70 and 71. There is one of these cams for each of the digits of the cash indications on the type wheel and drum, and as before stated, my invention is not limited to that number. As will be seenfrom the drawings, then-aim of mechanism above described, are in triplicate, one for each digit, and lie between the type wheels 51, 52 and 53, and the cams 69, 70 and 71. I
In Fig. 7, the adding values of the pins 68 are shown by primed numbers. On each of the cams there is a pin for each of the stations and fare indications, and when acertain fare station and fare is set in printing alinement on the type wheel, their respective pins 68 will engage the projection 67 on the lever 65. The weight of the lever 65, the link 66 and the rack 64 is sufiicient to hold the projection 67 in engagement with the pins, but a spring may be provided to assist in this function.
Referring to Fig. 2, it will be seen that when the projection 67 engages one of the pins 68, the rack 6-1 will be set to a position equal to the value of that pin. If the project-ion engages pin 5, 'the rack will be lowered a distance equal to five teeth from the position shown in Fig. 4. Consequently,
the segment gear 63 will be rocked a distance equal to five teeth of the ratchet, as the ratchet and gears have the same pitch. If the cam 62 is rocked a distance of five teeth and the shaft 57 and the arm 60 are then rocked, the pawl 59 will advance the ratchet five teeth when the pin 61 will engage the cam surface 62 and disengage the pawl 59' from the ratchet 58. The same would be the case with any of the pins shown on the .cam in F ig.-7. Attached to the ratchet 58 is the gear 56 having the same number of teeth (thirty) as said ratchet 58. This gear 56 meshes with a pinion attached to the type wheels 51, 52 and 53. It
will be seen that when the ratchet 58 is moved ,five teeth on any other number, the same amount of movement will be transmitted to the type wheels. Consequently, if the projection engages one of the pins 68 and .the shaft 57 is then rocked, the value of the pin. 68 will be set in printing position on its respective type wheel.
Referring to Fig. 14, the angular movement of the lever to rotate the ratchet 58 is indicated by the lines a a and b b. This lever has an additional movement 5 b 0-0 to actuatethe transfer mechanism.
' When the type wheels 51 and 52 make one complete revolution, the value of this revolution tten for the unit-wheel and one hundred for the tens wheel) is recorded on the next wheel; this is done after the value of the pins 68' is registered on the type Wheels.
Mounted on the shaft 50 are pivoted arms 72. These arms are held in normal position against the rod 73 by springs'74. Entending through each of these arms is a pm 78, and on one end of said pin is a plate 75, which is provided with two notches 76, in either one of which thelspri'ng 77 rests to hold 'tlm'plate in either its upper or lower position. On the other end of the-pin 78 is a pawl 82 which is adapted to engage and actuate the ratchets 79 on the side of the tens and hundreds wheels when the plate 75 is thrown to its lower position and shaft 57 actuated. The plate 75 is provided with a projection 80 which is engaged by one of the three pins 81 on the units and lens ratchets As before stated, there a re ten teeth on the pinion 55 and thirty teeth on the gear 56. Consequently, upon one rovolution of either the unit or tens type wheel. one of the pins 81 will engage the projection 80 and throw the plate 75 to its lower position, thereby throwing the pawl 82 in operative relation with the ratchet 79 of the tens and hundreds wheels. This pawl S2 is thrown while the ratchet is rotating, the pawl riding over the periphery of the ratchet until it comes to rest.
Referring to Fig. 14, it will be seen that the angular movement of the arm 60 is in two parts, represented by the lines (6 a 7) 7) 0 c. The first part of the movement has been referred to, and during the latter part of this movement. the transfer mechanism is actuated. 83 is a projection from the arms 50 which engages a projection Set on the arms 72 and rocks said arms during the latter part of the movement of the arms 60. If the pawl 82 of either the tens or hundreds ratchet is thrown by one of the pins 81, on the units or tens wheel and the arnis 60 and the unit wheel will be registered on the tens wheel .or the complete rotation of the tens wheel will be registered on the hundreds wheel as the case may be. At the end of the forward movement of the arms 72, when the plate 75 is in its lower position or set position, the cam end 85 of the plate 75 engages the inclined surface of the bar 86 thereby throwing the pawl 82 out of engagement with the ratchet 79. T he. cam end 85 engages the inclined surface of the bar .86 before the pawl 82 has moved the ratchet 79 one tenth of a revolution, but thr pawl 82 will stay in engagement with said ratchet a sufficient length of time to move the ratchet one tenth of a revolution. The type Wheels 51, 52 and 53 are held in printing alinement by the spring-supported rollers 57 engaging the space between the teeth of the pinmeans of springs on the cross bar .86. The (shaft 57 as before stated, is the main operating shaft of the machine and on its right end is provided a crank 87. The extent of the rocking movement of this shaft is shown by the lines a a and 0 c of Fig. 14.
printing .co'tmter.Mounted in the upper portion of the machine between the frames .-1 and 2, is a counter C consisting of Wheels 87. These Wheels are mounted on'a shaft 7 are then rocked, the completerotation of ions The rollers 57 are mounted by,
Visible ticket indicatorand total ticket '88 which is provided with a knob 89 on the outside of the machine, and by means of which said counting wheels 87 may be set to zero in a well-known manner. These counting wheels 87 are provided with ratchets 90 which are engaged by pawls 91 mounted on the frame 92. T he actuating means for the counting wheels 87 are of a well known type in which the pawls adapted to engage the tens and hundreds ratchet wheels, are held out of engagement with their. respective ratchets, by the unit pawl, and are allowed to engage their ratchets by the unit and tens pawl dropping in notches intheir ratchets asshown in Fig. 6. The frame 92 is pivoted on the shaft 88 and is rocked from the main actuating shaft 57. The right side plate of the frame 92 straddles the main actuating shaft 57 as at 93, and is provided with a pin 94 which is engaged alternately by theedges 95 and 96 of the disk 97 to rock said frame 92. The wheels 87 are provided with type characters 98 which are in printalinement with the type wheels 51, 52 and 53. The outer casing of the machine is provided with a which the indications on the wheels 87 are visible-see Iiig.13. v
The printing counters A and B are actuated from the frame 92-see Fig. 6. As before stated, the unit actuatingwheels are rigidly attached to the shaft 39. At the left end of the shaft 39 is a ten tooth ratchet 100 which is engaged by a pawl 101 on an arm 102. The arm 102 is connected to theframe 92 by the link 103. It will be seen that upon each movement of the shaft 57, the. frame 92 will be rocked and thecounters A, B andC will beactuated.
Printing mcchanism.-Mounted in the bottom of the machine and sliding in guides JG-{t is a plate 105 from which extends upwardly plates-7, 8 and 9. This frame-work platen 106 which is pivoted at 107 to the plates 7 and 9. This platen is actuated by cams 108 on the shaft 109. In the rear of the printing 'n'iechauism are mounted two rolls of paper-.110 and 111. The roll 110 provides the tickets to be issued, and the roll 111 pro-' .vides the strip for the printed record. The
strips of paper from these rolls pass over the platen 106 and then throiigh feed rollers. Referring to 8 and 9, it will be seen that on each issuance of a ticket, the ticket strip is fed a greater length than the record strip. Toaccomphsh this, I use differential feeding means havinga larger size feed roller for the ticket than forthe record. The
feed rollers are mounted on shaft 112 which is journaled. in the frames 7, 8 and 9. 113 are the larger feed rollers over which-the tickets. pass, and 11 1 are the smaller rollers over which the record strip passes. I The feed sight opening 99 through Mounted it may tdrn' off;
rollers 113 and 11 1 are provided with serrated edges 115 the paper more positive. The strips are kept in contact with their feed rollers 116 on shaft 117 This shaft 117 also has hearings in the frames 7, 8 and Q'and is controlled by springs in pockets 118. To separate the feed rollers ing the paper strips in position,'I provide cams 119 pivoted on the shaft 112 and engag ing the shaft 117. The feed rollers 113 and ll t-and the shaft 112 make a complete revolution upon the issuance of each ticket. The shaft 112 is driven from the'shaft 109 which also makes a complete revolution by means of gears 120 on each end of the shaft 112 meshing with the segment gears 121 on the shaft 109. The segment gears 121 are twice the diameter of the gears 120, and as will be seen from the drawings, the feed, rollers are rotated during the latter half of the revolutionof the cam shaft 109. -During the first half of the revolution of the shaft 109, the type wheels are inked and the ticket and record are printed. The type wheels are inked by a felt-inkingroller 122 mounted at the lower ends of spring contrOlIed arms 123. These arms 123 are pivoted to the frames 1 and 1 at 124. The lower ends of the arms 123 have projections 125 which are in thepath of the pins 126 on the segment gears 121.- At the beginning of the movement of the, shaft 109, the pins 126 engage the projections 125 and carry the inking roller 122 under the type wheels a sufficient distance to ink the same. the projections 125 which allow the inklng roller to spring back to its normal position andout of the way of the platen which next ascends. The shaft 109 is the main actuating shaft of the printing mechanism and is driven during the latter half of the return movement of the main operating lever 87. On the rightend of the shaft 109 is a pinion 127 which meshes with a gear 128 pivoted at 129 to the side frame 1; these gears have a three to one ratio. Attached to the gear which make the feeding of from the contact rollers, when plac-.
The pins 126 then release 128 is a three tooth ratchet 130, said teeth being engaged by the spring-controlled pawl 131 on arm 132. The arm 132 is connected to the arm 132 on the main actuating shaft 57 by a link 133. 'During the forward movement of the shaft 57 the. pawl 131 descends and engages the lower tooth of the ratchet- 130, and during the return movement of said shaft 57, the pawl 13 rotates the ratchet 130 thereby inking ing the ticket, and record, and feeding said ticket and record. The ticket -is issued through a slot.134 in the front.'casing where The'record is fed-into the bottom of'the machine and is inaccessible to unauthorized persons. casing is provided with a 136, The printing mechanism. is slidingly the type wheels, printof the machine.

Referring to sheet 7, in Figs. 8 and t), I and record as issued from a machine provided with a consecutive printing counter as described. In Figs. 10 and 11, the tickets shown are issued from a machine fnot provided wit-h consecutive i but in lieu thereof, the tickets themselves are serially numbered. Each. machine has substantially a universal capacity in that it'may be utilized in the service of any railway company or transany company without altering or changing any of the mechanical features in the machi e, common to them all. In adapting the machines for service on any particular it is only necessary to arrange the the peripheries of the printing wheels to print the-names of the stations and prices of the tickets. The identification devices, the dating devices, the consecutive the register number de vices, the devices for printing the value of each ticket, the devices for specializing the tickets, such for example, as half fare tickets,
clergyman tickets etc, the devices for printing railway type on 0 the total number of tickets sold, and the devices for printing the total value-of all the tickets sold, are features which are common to all of the machines.
'The'tickets as shown in Fig. 10 are pro-. vided with the numbers thereon before the the station type roll is placed in the machine. The tickets shown in Fig. 8 have the serial numbers printed thereon in the machine.
Figs. 1 and 1*, show identification devices 137, one to print the identification of the ticket seller on the ticket, and the other to print it on the duplicate record. In some cases it may not be desirable to print the ticket sellers identification on the tickets, but to print it only upon the record; in this case, one of the identification printing devices 137 may be omitted from the machine.
The month wheel and the date wheel may beused upon the record fora double purpose, see Figs. 10, 11 and 15, for example, after indicating and printing the date on the record of the first ticket, the month and day wheels 12 and 19 maybe further used for printing the time wheel from 1 to 5, for printing the fractions of hours, for example, l to signify 10 mins; 2 to signify 20 mins; 3 to signif-y 30 mins.; etc. For even hours, the star is used in place of any of the figures used to indicate a fraction of an hour.
To further illustrate: In starting in the morning, the machine will begin operation at *1 the record will show this to be 1 oclock a. m.; the second 1 to be 1 oclock p. m. In such case, a double set of indicators may be used, disconnected, to be operated separately, as shown in Fig. 15, one on each side of the machine; one to indicate. and print the dates on the tickets, and the other the hours and minutes on the record as above described in addition to the dates. In this case the shafts 17 and 24: are omitted as shown in Fig. 15. 28 designates the day indicating wheel, 29 the month indicating wheel, 31 and 32 are the by hours, the date respective shafts of said wheels, 34; and 35' designate the gears on said shafts which mesh with gears 20 and 13 on the, day and month type wheels 18 and 11 which have been referred to. 50 is an indicator under which revolve the day and month wheels 28 and 29. 4
The operation of my machine is as follows: When it is desired to issue a ticket, the drums 28, 29 and 30 are rotated to bring the selected month, date and class of ticket under the indicator 50. This operation brings the selected type in printing alinement with the platen, The station printing drum is then rotated. until the desired destination coincides with the indicator 50. By means of the figures denoting the ticket values or prices opposite the stations onsaid drum, the operator will know in advance the cost of such ticket. This last operation brings in printing alinement with the platen. By this operatiointhe cams 62 are also'set by the racks 64, links 66, levers 65, projections 67, and the pins 68 on cam 69, and 7 1. The machine is now set and the ticket is next printed and issued. The
the total cash counter and the counters A,
B and C are actuated, and during the reverse movement, thetype wheels are inked, the ticketand record are printed and the ticket isissued, which completes the operation. l
