APPARATUS FOR PRINTING TICKETS AND THE LIKE.
Specification of Letters Patent.
Patented J an. 25, 1916.
Application filed January 14, 1915. Serial No. 2,258.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, ADoLr ZoLLIN, Jr., a subject of the German Emperor, and resident of Badenweiler, Germany, have invented certain new anduseful Improvements in Apparatus for Printing Tickets and the like, of which the following is a specification.
This invention relates to an improved apparatus of the kind, by which different tickets and the like can be quickly printed.
According to the invention, one half of the printing device is permanently located in the appantus, it containing the station of departure with date printer and numbering device, while the other half is removable, it containing the station of destination and the price indications for the ticket, the latter being automatically adjusted with the adjustment to the kind of train and class of wagon.
The printing of the remaining indications, thatis the kind of train (ordinary or express train), the class of wagon (1st, 2nd or 3rd class) is obtained by the lateral displacement of the printing device to the corresponding row. By this sub-division of the printing process, always one printing block only is required for one station of destination, whereas hitherto a plurality of the same were necessary.
The accompanying drawings show one suitable constructional form of the improved apparatus.
Figure 1 is a fragmentary plan view of the apparatus with removed cover and with the printing device ready for printing a ticket; Fig. 2 is a plan view of the detached cover a with guiding slots 0;; Figs. 3, 4 and 5 show, respectively in a front view, plan view and side view, the printing device, while Fig. 6 is an underside plan view of the printing block provided with automatically adjustable price indications and with a numbering device; Fig. 7 is a vertical crosssection through the apparatus, showing partly the mechanism of the same, the printing device being shown in its position of rest by full lines and in its position for printing and cutting off the ticket by dotted lines f and f respectively; Fig. 8 shows a perspective view of the station block to be inserted in the printing device; Fig. 9 is a detail of the station block consisting of two parts, showing the arrangement of the printing disks provided with difierent automatically adjustable price indications; Fig. 10 shows a finished printed ticket together with the controlling web.
Like in other machines of this type, the printing device is adjustable in two directions at right angles to one another, with the distinction, however, that with the known apparatus such displacement serves to bring the printing device to that place only at which the printing disk for the station of destination is located, whereas with the present invention the displacement in one direction serves for permitting the division of the printing process only, the printing device being with a lateral displacement adjusted to the paper webs located side by side and corresponding to the different kinds of train and classes of wagon, in order to efiect printing with its displacement in a direction at right angles to the former.
A further novelty of the invention is that with the lateral displacement also the price indications are automatically adjusted.
The main advantage of the improved arrangement is that the printing disk provided with the station of destination can be made of one and the same pattern for all stations, it being only necessary to exchange the printing disks carrying the corresponding price indications. At the same time, also the printing disks for a series of stations can be uniformly made, as the price indications are always determined corresponding to the kilometric distances, and in all cases, in which a station of destination has the same distance from the station.of departure, always the same printing disk can be used for the price indications, whereby the manufacture of the apparatus is considerably cheapened.
Referring to the drawings: In the casing a of the apparatus a frame-like slide 7) is so arranged that it can be moved in lateral directions and adjusted above the paper webs (Z for the tickets and the controlling strips 6 for the same. in the slide Z) th printing device 0 is located so as to be movable at right angles thereto.
The printing device is provided with a spring-pressed hand-lever f, the support of the spring of said hand-lever being mounted on the slide Z), in which the printing device 0 can move in forward and rearward direc tions, while the slide 6 itself can move in 3 the casing a to the right and left. As shown in Fig. 7, said hand-lever is movably ill-3 mounted at g on'the casing of the printing apparatus and connected by a link it with the up and down movable head i of the printing device a. In order to permit of the hand-lever 7' being used for laterally moving and advancing the latter as well as for depressing the head, the lever carries on a bracket a g iding-roller is which prevents the lever from being reversed during the lateral displacement as well as from bearing upon the slide Z) during the advance of the printing device. The supporting plane for this guiding roller formed by the slide 6, receives a gap L (Fig. 7) at a corresponding point, whereby the roller is loses its support with completely advanced printing device, so that the lever f is automatically reversed and at the same time the head 2' is depressed through the medium of the link h.
The printing device proper comprises the frame a guided in the slide 6 and in which the head 2' containing the station of departure is exchangeably inserted. In this part of the station block, at the same time the numbering device on for the ticket and the auditing strip (which is omitted in Fig.7 for sake of clearness), as well asthe adjustable date-printer n are provided.
The advance of the numbering device is effected by the laterally projecting pins of the disk m, upon descent of the printing disk, being turned for one number by a springy abutment on the slide 1) (see Fig. 5'). Upon ascent of the printing disk the springy abutment yields to the pins of the disk m. In order to allow an unobstructed descent of the axle of the numbering device, a slot is provided in the printing device 0 (see Fig. 5.)
The auditing strip 6 as well as the ticket strip d are located in the casing a. The auditing strip is not led to the outside, but it is Woundup in the front half of the casing a (Fig. 7, right-hand side) as it must be locked up.
The advance of the numbering device is suitably effected upon each depression of the printing device, while the date-printer can be daily adjusted by hand in a way known in the art.
Qne half of the head a (Fig. 6) is adapted forthe reception of the easily exchangeable two-parted station block 0, which contains the indications for the station of destination, to which belong beyond the name of station itself also the prices for the ticket.
As the latter depend always upon the kind of train (ordinary or express train) and the class of wagon (1st, 2nd or 3rd class), provision is made in each station block 0 that the actual price is automatically adjusted by the lateral displacement of the printing device. This arrangement is shown in Fig. 9. The adjustment of the printing disks 0 containing the different price indications, is
effected by means of pins Q, which are so arranged between the single paper webs (Z, 6 (Fig. 1) that they pass within reach of a slot 1 in the twoparted station block 0. According to whether the printing device with. its slide Z) is moved over the first, second, third &c. pair of webs, also the disks 7), p containing the price indications are'advanced for one, two, three &c. sections by the wheels 3 and the pins Q along which they pass. The printing disks are arrested or secured in position by springs to acting on projections at, which are provided onthe wheels 8 at suitable distances from each other.
is repeated but vice versa.
A printing cylinder 2? is arranged in the partition walls carrying the pinsq 1) and so located between the paper web cl, which is unwound from its roller, and the printing head i that by means of the same the ticket is printed with the indications for the kind of train and class of wagon, during the forward movement of the printing de- Fl cutter located on the head 2', the cutting-off of the ticket is effected in scissor-like fashion during the depress on of the head. 7
The operation of the nnproved arrange- 'ment is as follows :-Upon the date-printer n being adjusted by hand in the printing device 0, which is required once daily, the
station-block 0 corresponding to the desired station is inserted in the printing device.
Thereupon, by means of handle f the print- 7 During the return of the printing device'to its initial posltion, the proceeding ing device 0 with its slide Z) is laterally dis:
placed until it arrives above the desired kind of train and class of wagon, for instance: Express train, 2nd class. Thereupon, without liberation of handle f, the printing device is pulled forward, whereby the paper web (Z for the ticket as well as the auditing web 6 are also moved forward, but for different distances, by means of the tappet'de- 'vice provided on the printing cylinders t,
1 Meanwhile, the ticket paper-web Z is provided with the uniform printing of the kind of train (for instance: express, train) and'class of wagon (for instance: 2nd class) by means of the printing cylinder t. Di
- rectly after the forward movement, the descentof the printing device is effected by depression of handle f, whereby the printing of the ticket is finished and the latter is cut off. During the descent, also the automatic advance of the numbering device m takes place.
F or the purpose of moving the auditing strip 6 forward at a difi erent rate and for a different distance from that of the web (Z, any appropriate means may be employed; for instance, the printing cylinders and tappet rollers for both said members may be of different diameters.
In order to prevent, on retraction of the printing device 0, the backward feed of said strips, of course, a ratchet and pawl mechanism must be provided, which allows the movement of said strips in one direction only, while at the same time also means may be provided for bringing the cylinder 16 and the tappet and inking roller y out or" engagement with the printing device 0.
The finished ticket can be removed from the apparatus either by hand, or automatically.
