TICKET PRINTING' AND ISSUING' MACHINE.
new. and useful Imrovements in Ticket Printing and Issuing 4 i/lachines, of which the following is a specification. This invention relates to machines for printing and issuing, as required, tickets such as used, on Steamship, airship, railway, tramway and omnibus routes, or in theaters, halls, sports grounds and other buildings or-inclosures, the chierC object of the invention being to provide a simple, reliable and efficient machine for this purpose.
According to the present invention a single ticket is fed into the machine, print--A ed, numbered, dated, priced and issued conveniently by the operation 'of a single handle or lever, controlling the movement of a printing member which draws the ticket in automatically, passes it between its printing face and an impression member and after printingv ejects the ticket, the
ftotal' number of tickets printedv together with the price of each ticket as issued, being automatically recorded within the machine and with the initiation of 'the printing movement, the parts under the direct con trol of the operator are automatically locked against tampering or improper movement.
t siderable econom A single plate or .block furnished with fixed or permanent` and also changeable matter or 'the desired particulars in the torni o'telectro type or types and constitutf ing a form plate 0r member ismounted to reciprocate or move to and fro in one guides underthe control of the user and in moving draws the blank ticket into the machine and feeds it between its printing surface and a rubber or other suitable impression roller so that the ticket receives a print from the matter on the form plate and is then ejected. Ink is supplied to the typographie mattcr on the plate each time it is moved by an ink saturated roller or-rollers, conveniently two ink rollers are employed, each. adapted to act upon approximately one half of the surface of the plate, thus efectin a con in the dimen ions `or length of the mac ine,
When ticketssuch as used on absteai'iuv or West, London, Eng- Specicaton of Letters l tent. .Patented Mar 1"?, 1914:, Application tiled February 21, 1911. Serial No. 610,111. I
airship, rail or tramway, or omnibus route are to be produced, the permanent particulars on the form plate which as stated is moved to and fro in one plane, comprise the names of the various stopping places or stations each station being also designated by a distinguishing letter ornumeral, conveniently placed alongside of the name, #for outward and return journey. The movable or changeable'particulars comprise, preterablv, a price printing mechanism and a stay tion printing mechanism controllable by the operator, a dating mechanism changeable as required, together with automatically coni trollable price totalizer and counter, also an automatically operated mechanism for numbering the tickets as issued.4
s Then the machine is used to print tickets for theaters, halls, or the like, sports or ,I
other inclosures,v the form plate movable as above stated,bears as the permanent particulars the names of the various blocks of seats, positions or locations, each accoml'ianicd by a designating numeral or symbol when necessary and the movable or changeable pa'rticulars -may be the same as already referred to in connection with railway, tramway .or similar tickets.
Mechanisms are also provided in accord'- ance with this invention lfor automatically locking the handles or devices which are under the direct control of the operator tor setting the price and destination printing vdevices to prevent improper manipulation or tampering, and also to lock the operating lever against return movement until a ticket has been printed and issued and the record- .'ing devices operated.
The" invention will now be described more particularly as applied to the printing and issuing o-'tickets such as are used on railway, tramway, omnibus or ship routes, or other tickets bearing the names of a series of stations or positions with diiterent prices, the machine being adapted to print and issue the ticket, so that it bears upon it full particulars of the station the ticket is available, the price charged, the number of the ticket' and also the date of issue, the issue of the ticket and the price printed on it being also automatically re corded within the machine outside ot the control'ot. the operator.
vReferring to the accompanying draw les ings Figure l is a sectional elevation of a preferred form of embodiment of the invention. Fig. 2 is a front sectional elevation the casing being removed. Fig. 3 is a rear sectional elevation the back ot' the casing being removed. Fig. 4 is a sectional side elevation showing certain details. F ig. 5 is a sectional side elevation showing other details. Fig. 6 is a detail sectional view. lfig. l' is an outside side elevation of the machine and Fig. 8 is an outside front elevation and Fig. 9 is a view of the ticket as issuede A is the plate, or printing member7 B the impression member or roller, C the casing, D the operating lever. E E1 the inlring rollers, l? the price setting handle, G the station or destination setting handle, lil the numbering mechanism, J the dating mechanism, K the locking mechanism for handles l? and G. L the locking mechanism for the lever D, M the price counter or totalizer and O the counter of tickets issued.
The plate A is supported on tivo side bars or members A1 adapted to move in guides A2 formed on side frames C. The plate has the permanent or xed printing matter a conveniently in the form of an electrotype mounted upon its face and the movable or changeable printing matter isA conveniently borne upon dis is or rollers Fig. 1 carried on the plate or by its supporting members A1 so that the type thereon are flush with the printing surface of the electrotype a, the plate is reciprocated to and ltro in one plane under the control of the operator.l
The movable or adjustable printing matter comprises a Wheel or cylinder G1 furnished with type numerals or it may be letters or symbols, corresponding to those on the form pliate designating the various staf'ons or stoppingplaces. This type cylidr G1 is' under the control of the user o that the particular letter or numeral can 3e turned around to be flush with the printng surface a of the form plate A to form for the time being an integral printing part thereof. roller the index handle or disk G is mounted upon a shaft mounted in the frames C and having a toothed Wheel g1 gearing With a toothed Wheel g. on the shaft f of the type-carrying cylinder G1 so that by setting a particular ligure opposite a stationary finger or indicator' it will be insured that' the corresponding type on the cylinder G1 `Will be printed on the ticket next issued. The type cylinder G1 moves to and fro with the plate A While the controlling handle G is mounted in the stationary 'frame or casing C? so that adjustments of thl cylinder G1 can be made only when the i'rm plate is in normal or in operative position as shown in F 3i as only then are the wheels' For convenience in setting this` position, with a pinion f1 on the shaft of the handle F which controls the movements of Athe cylinder F1 and is marked with the prices chargeable. I The cylinder F1 moves to and fro with the plate A While the handle F is carried by the frame C so that the cylinder F1 can only be adjusted when the wheels f1 f2 are in mesh which is when the plate is in its inoperative position as shown in Fig. 3.
The printing disks F1 G1 are provided with star Wheels respectively f1 g10 with Which engage springs f g11 to prevent the Wheels being rotated accidentally during the printing operation.
vAs the index disks or handles F, G are rotatable but are not movable With the form plate it is necessary in order to prevent tampering or improper uso'to lock them against movement after the' plate A has been moved through partjot its travel or prevent them being oper/ated except When the plate A is in the inoperative position as shown inv F ig. 3. To avoid such misuse a locking mechanism is provided7 according to this invention, and is controlled by the movements of the form plate. For this purpose the `gear Wheels ot the type cylinders F1 G1 which mesh With gear Wheels onf'the shafts or. the index disks, are adapted to be locked against rotation when the two sets of Wheels are not yin mesh,` by studs 7c k1 or the like carried by a sliding member K Which is slotted and moves upon headed pins 7c3 passing through the slot 71:1. stantly tends to dravv the studs into locking engagement with the Wheels (see Fig. 6) and the member K is lifted against the action of the spring to move the studs out of engagement with the Wheels by a projection or shoulder a1 on the form plate A when the said plate is returning to and has almost reached its initial position (see Fig. 3). Thus by the provision of this mechanism it is not possible to set the price printing roller to print one sum and then before the actual recording operation to reset the mechanism to record say a lower sum, as the locking mechanism'prevents any movement of the index unless and until it also moves the printing roller. l
The two index mechanisms are so contrived that if 'the machine is operated either with or Without a ticket, a'ticket is added to the total as if really issued and some price also added to the money total to be accounted for.
The form plate A is reciprocated by the 2 A spring 7c conlever conveniently through v'a quadrant or segment D1 connected to the shaft d of the operating handle or lever D, and gearing` cylinders F1 and G1 'flush with the printing` surface ofA the plate A, a blank ticket is then inserted in the ticket slot of the casing and the lever D moved downward. The front about half the thickness of a ticket, so thaty the plate can perform its returnV journey without the matter thereon .being printed otl' upon the surface ofthe roller B. The
resiliency of the roller allows for the sub-v stance of the ticketor the roller may be mounted in. yielding bearings. To provide a continuous surface 'for feedingithe ticket the plate A is provided with ribs all.
Guides may be provided for directing .thel
, ticket through the machine but preferably .dit
the ticket .which is not positively gripped whilepassing through the machine is bent` by the pressure applied to it in passing between the form plate and impression roller and the delivery slot in the casing is posi.
tioned so that the ticket is automatically directed through it, thus it is only necessary for the user, before operating the controlling handle or lever, to insert the ticket far enough into the inlet slot for the front-edge of the ticket to be gripped between the plate y and roller.
The ink rollers E E1 are rotated only by frictions] contact with the matter` on the form plate A and thereforeto insure that thesurfa ofthe plate will be properly inked it is' desirable that a relative move*4 ment takes place between the two contacting surfaces and lpreferablythis is provided for byl mounting the inkng rollers upon split shafts' c which can be expanded or contractedV sot-hat an adjustable orvariable' resistance to their rotation is provided.
Provision is made according. to this invention' to prevent the plate A being partially moved to print avticketwithoutgre eording its issue and the price at which it is issued. This is accomplished by mounting on the shaft d of the operating lever D, a toothed segment L1 with which engages a s ring-controlled paw] L so mounted as to a low the shaft to turn in one direction only until moved to the end of' its travel. At both ends oi' this segment or rack is an offset L2 which coincides with the limits of the travel of the plate A so that when the pawl enters` automatically turned to lie in the opposite direction and allow the shaft/'to move in the opposite direction until the plate is moved to the otherend oi' its travel.
In addition tothe above described articulars, a dating mechanism J is provided known manner. Likewise an automatically operated numbering mechanism H to number the tickets issued, consecutively is provided and the actuating arm H1 thereof is operated automatically `by the movements of the plate A.
' The price printed on a ticket X is automatically registered and. added up ou a counter Mj the operations of which are controlled by vthe movement of the form plate A and the particularamount added is controlledby the price printing cylinder.v Conveniently this is eiiectcd in the following man- Iier: On one end the shaft of the cylinder F1 is mounted a cam N or eccentric (see Figsg and 5) adapted to engage one end of the actuating arm M1 which is fulcrumed at m and carries a toothed quadrant m2 controlled by a spring Vm1 and gearing with a toothed wheel ma on the main shaft of the counter M.- lVlien the plate A is moved down to eiect the printing and issuing of a ticket the cam N engages and moves the said arm Ml throughv a distance variable in accordance with the amount to be printed and recorded, The movement of the form plate also operates a counter O Yfor adding up'the total number of tickets issued. For this purpose Athe operating arm O? ofthe counter projects into the path of the plate A or it Amay be controlled by the movement of the y stations or locations, designating symbols therefor and various prices, it is not to be limited'thus as it mayv be employed for printing and issuing as required a series of like admission or 4other vtickes, without des'- ignating symbols and with or without numbei-ing these successively or dating them. ln other words where tickets loi admission to a building. inclosure or the like are rel quired, vand the price is the saine for all tickets, the price printing device may be locked temporarily, or replaced by 'a lined price vprinting mechanism, and similarly the station or location printing device may be locked or omitted.
Having desc 'ibed my invention' declare that Awhat l claim and desire to secure by Letters Patent is l. ln a machinel for printingr and issuing single or separate tickets, the combination of a reciprocating type carrying member, an impression member adapted to cooperate with the type carrying member, means for reciprocating the type carrying men'iber, a casing inclosing said parte and having apertures for the admission or" ticket blanks and the discharge of printed tickets arranged respectively at opposite sides or' the impresn sion member, the latter and the type carrying member being so related that a single movement tlieieory in one direction will lfeed a blank to printinr position, print. such blank, and deliver it a printed ticket, and means for preventing retrograde movement of the type carrying member after a blank has been engaged thereby until said blank has been completely printed.
