MACHINE FOR PREPARING RECORD-CARDS.

' Specification of Letterslatent. Patentgd piay 14 Application filed October 30, 1915. Serial No. 58,772.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, OLIVER L. DOSGH, a citizen of the United States, residing, at Elizabeth, in the county of Union'and State of New Jersey, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Machines for Preparing Record-Cards, of which the following is a specification, reference being had therein to the accompanying drawings.

This invention relates to an improvement in machines for preparing record-cards or other media for the operation of tabulating or sorting apparatus. According to an existing system, means are provided for producing in the cards or other media physical changes in I mutually unrelated positions thereon but corresponding individually With quantities or qualities of a predetermined schedule, which is preferably printed upon the cards or other media operated upon.

It has been customary heretofore to apply to the recordcards, in addition to the holes punched therein for cooperation with the tabulating or sorting apparatus, and in a separate operation from the punching action, written or printed data constituting the original record to which the positions of the various punched-out portions correspond under the schedule employed. The present invention has for one of itsprincipal objects to obviate the liability to discrepancy between the two kinds of markings of the record-card or medium involved in the separate and distinct operations by which they are produced.

The invention consists primarily in combining with the means for producing physical changes in the record-card ormedium, means for applying thereto in regular order characters corresponding individually with said-physical changes, thereby insuring the agreement of the original record data with the physical changes purporting to correspond therewith according to the tabulating or accounting system.

In the preferred form of the present improvement, the machine comprises worksupporting and feedim means in the form of a traveling carrier 1:01 the record-cards,

with a row of punches arranged crosswise of the direction of travel and a series of type having a common printing point preferably in alinement with the row of punches. Each punch is connected with and operated by a key and has a connection also with one of the type having a character corresponding with the position of its respective punch of the series, the feeding device having also a connection with each of the operating keys whereby the record card or other medium receives an advance feeding movement for each actuation thereof. In the operation of the keys to produce the original record, which may be effected in either figures or letters, a punched-out hole is invariably produced'to correspond in position, according to the schedule employed, with the record character simultaneously applied.

While the physical change producing means is preferably in the form of a punch for removing a portion of the card or other record-medium, it is evidently immaterial to the present improvement whether the kind of implement employed for effecting this physical change be of the class for removing a portion, as by punching, oradding to the card, as by application of an adhesive disk in a manner-in which small labels have been applied to solid objects, or by changes in the surface of the card without removal or addition thereto, as by embossing. It-is to be understood that the term punch, as employed herein, is used for con- 'venience in designating any tool or implement adapted to effect in the card or recordmedium a physical change of any of the kinds referred-to to adapt it for the operav tion of the tabulating or sorting apparatus.

The carrier is preferably provided with a clamp for holding securely in position thereon not only the record card to be punched and printed, but one or more additional record sheets with opposed carbon coatings whereby the printed record may be duplicated; but it is obvious that the employment of an ink ribbon passing over the card at the printing point would provide for suitable impressions of the type upon the card in lieu of the employment of carbonfaced paper for the purpose.

The invention will be understood by ref erence to the accompanying drawings, in which Figure l is a plan of a record-punching and printing machine embodying the present invention and Fig. 2 is an elevation of the same with the base in section. Figs.

of the record-card 3 and t are elevations taken respectively from the opposite ends of the machine and representing certain of the housings in sectionto expose the parts within. Fig. -is an elevation representing the central part of the machine from the opposite side to that represented in 2, and with certain parts in section. Fig. 6 is a detail partial sectional View representing one of the actuating keys and the parts operated thereby. Fig. l' is an elevation representing one of the he e from a dilierent viewpoint and the connection with its respective type-carrying bar. Figs. 8 and 9 are respectively a sectional elevation and plan of different parts oi'the feeding mechanism. Figs. and. 11 are views of the opposite faces of a portion of a duplication sheehshowinp; hands of carbon coating appliec thereto. Fig. 12 is a transverse section representing a record-card with an overlying duplication sheet folded to produce several copies of the printed record.

In its capacity as a record-card punching machine, the machine represented in the ac coinpanying drawings is similar in general constructive features to that forming the subject of the United tStates patent to Herman llolleiith, llO. 682,197, of September 10, 1901. it is onstructed with the hollow rectangular base 1 supporting the bed-plate :2 which is formed with a longitudinal slot 3 in which the work-carrier or card-holder travels.

The worl' carri r comprises the bar 4:

, formed upon its lower edge with. the rackteeth 5 and at the opposite ends of its upper edge with the raised seats 6 and 7 Upon the seat (5 is secured a plate 8 having lateral guide-wings 9 entering guide-grooves 10 in the adjacent edges otf the heel-plate sections 2 at opposite sides of the slot 3. The plate 8 has upon one end the block ll, a portion of whose top ail'ords one jaw of a gripping device or clump of which the other jaw is atiorded lateral extension 12 or an upwardly and laterally extending lever 13 hinged to the hlocl: ll by means of the pin 1%. The clamp is maintained normally closed upon card or other article, rep resented in tall lines in Fig. 2, by means of a spring secured upon the hack of the lever an ing its free end resting against the block,

Upon the seat *5 is secured the plate provided with lateral wings 1T entering the guide-grooves $0 and provided with an upwardly ext: 1 stop-lug 18 for the end 1 opposite that gripped by th clamp l l inc to with the pinion the rack-oar i are in mesh which is journaled upon the stud 20 too 1 into an extension ll of the hem L c t which is sustamed by the hear ng hose pro ectm inwardly rem which plate in turn secured by screws 10 the outer face of the lateral extension 26 of the base 1. Journaled 'opposite end the pinion 29 in mesh with the peripheral spur-teeth 30 of a disk 31 having also upon its periphery the ratchet-teeth 32 ttCl]21C8l1l3 the spur-teeth.

The toothed disk or wheel 81 has a boss which is journaled upon the stud 3% extending from the frame plate 24: and is formed in its outer face with a central recess having a pocket inits outer periphery to receive the eyed outer extremity 35 of a spring 36 formed with a similar inner extremity 37 which enters a peripheral notch in a thimhle 38 embracing the outer portion or the hub oi the toothed wheel and ap ertured and shouldered to fit the reduced outer portion oi the stud 3i upon which it is i'rictionally clamped by the head of the screw 39 tapped into the outer end of the stud 3i (Fig. 8). By temporarily loosening 1 I the screw 39, the thnnlole may he turned to wind up the spring for sulojectingthe wheel 31 to the desired degree of tension in propelling the work-carrier through its described connections with the rack-bar Al.

Journaled in a suitable bearing boss 2% or" the frameplate is a rook-shaft l0 having loosely ournaled thereon a plural-armed lever comprising the downwardly extending pawl-arm e1 having at its extremity a tooth 42 adapted for engagement with the peripheral ratchet teeth of the wheel 31 and a lateralarin ghaving its extremity connected by means of the spring with a pin to upon the rock-shaft d0 As represented in l. the hub of the plural-armed lever is formed with a clearance notchloosely embracing" the pin l5 and affording a. shoulder which is pressed yieldingly against the pin under the action of the spring it.

The rock-shaft has also loosely journaled upon its outer end and confined thereon by the cross-pin e6 the hub i? of a holding pawl-lever l8 provided at its free end with the tooth l9 normally maintained in operative engagement with the ratchet toothed periphery of the wheel 31 loyaspring connecting the lever $8 with a pin 51 upon the fume-plate 2%. The lever 48 has an aperture i8 which is entered by a lateral pin .32 upon the lever-arm i3. 7

In the normal position of the rocl-sha:tt it). the pawl-tooth i2 is maintained normally tut of engagement with the ratchet-teeth of the wheel 31, but when the rock-shaft is actuated for a feeding action, such pawl is moved into engagement with the ratchet toothed periphery of the disk 31 and the holding lever 4-8 is ret acted by engagement of the upper side of the aperture 48 with the lifting pin 52 the parts resuming normal position, as represented in Fig 5, when the rock-shaft is released by its actuating means.

The spring cavity of the wheel 31 is closed by the annular cover-plate 53 upon which is secured the guard-ring 54 projecting beyond the periphery of the wheel 31 to confine the pawl-teeth 42 and L9 in operative relation with the ratchet-teeth 32.

J ournaled in the plate 24 is a rocking pin 55 bent laterally from'one end of the pawllifting lever 56 provided with the button or key 57. The pin 55 is formed in its outer end with a fork in which. is secured the pawllifting plate 58 normally resting upon the stop-pin 59 under the action of a spring 60 connected atone end with said pawl-lifting plate and at the opposite end with a pin 61 upon the frame-plate 24. The plate 58 normally lies below the outer extremity of the pawl-lever 48, as represented in Fig. 5, so thatsuch lever normally works independently thereof, but upon depression of the lifting lever 56 the plate 58 engages the pawl-lever 48 and lifts its tooth 49 clear of the ratchet-teeth of the wheel 31, the aperture 48 being sufliciently large to permit the lifting of the lever 48 without action upon the pin 52 to throw the pawl-tooth 42 into engagement with the ratchet-teeth. The lifting movement of the plate 58 is limited by the stop-pin 62.

As will be observed, the pawl-levers 41 and 48 together form an escapement in conjunction with the peripheral ratchet-teeth 32 of the wheel 31 to control the step-by-step rotation of the pinion 29, and hence the travel of the work-holder, under the action of the spring 36. The actuation of the pawl-lifting lever 56 obviously serves to free the wheel 31 of the control of both pawl-elements of the escapement so as to permit the work carrier to move freely under the action of the spring 36 to initial position upon the machine frame, wherein the end of the rackbar engages the adjustable carrier-sto 63.

Secured upon the bed-plate 2 is a rame comprising the upright members 6& and .the spaced cross-members 65. Journaled in a suitable bearing of said frame is-a rocking pin 66 arranged in alinement with the rockshaft 40 and provided with a crank-arm 67 between which and a similar crank-arm 68 loosely mounted upon the rock-shaft 40 is a transverse universal bar 69 the depression of which causes the rocking of the shaft l0 for actuation of the feed-escapement.

An extension of the bar 69 carries an adjustable screw-pin 70 whose point rests upon a lateral arm 71 projecting from a collar 72 fixed upon the rock-shaft 40 and bearing upon the head of a pin 73 journaled inasocket of an extension of the frame-plate 24 and normally pressed upwardly by a spring 74 (Fig. 3), thereby providing for maintenance of the rock-shaft in initial position.

Journaled within one of the frame-memb'ers 65 are the punches 75 arranged in a row transverse to the direction of travel of the work-carrier and having their reduced lower portions 76 fitted to corresponding apertures in the transverse guide-bar 77 between which and the enlarged portions 75 of the punches are interposed the lifting springs 78. The reduced operative end portions of the punches work in suitable apertures 79 of the transverse die-plate 80 whose upper face is substantially at the level of the upper worksupporting face of the bed-plate 2 (Figs. 2 and 6).

One of the frame-members 65 sustains a row of depending fulcrum screw-pins 81 each having a rounded lower extremity entering a pocket formed in the upper edge and at one end of a bent punch-lever 82 (Fig. 2) whose opposite end is formed with a fork 83. The fork 83 embraces the reduced portion of a push-rod 84 journaled in the frame-member-65 and formed with a lateral notch 85 to receive one member of the fork. Each push-rod is provided upon its upper end with a key 86.

Each of the punch-levers 82 near its fulcrum-pin 81 rests upon the top of a punch 75 intermediate which and its respective push-rod 84 it is adapted for engagement with the universal bar 69 (Fig. 6). The push-rods 84 are for convenience arranged in several rows crosswise of the direction of feed. It is obvious that the depression of a key 86 acts through the lever 82 to actuate its respective punch and to simultaneously engage the universal bar 69 to operate the escapement for producing a feed step.

Each of the push-bars 8a is formed in its lower end with a lateral notch affording a shoulder 87 for engagement by one of the members of a forked arm 88 embracing the reduced lower end of the push-bar and having its hub 89 secured by means of a setscrew 90 upon one of a series of type-bar rock-shafts 91 suitably j ournaled in the frame-members 64:. Each rock-shaft 91 has fixed upon one end a type-bar 92 moreor ing a printing face formed with a suitable character which is preferably a figure, but

which may be a letter of the alphabet.

The type-barsafe of such proportion and shape that in the rocking of their respective shafts by the described connection with the push-rods 8a: their respective types will dcscend upon the object to be printed through an aperture 94 formed in the guide-bar 7 7 preferably in alinement with the punches 75,76 (Fig.2). The type-bar rock-shafts 91 are surrounded eachby a spring 95 having one end attached to the set-screw 90 and the other end connected to an adjacent rockshaft or to a stud-pin 96 (Fig. 3), these Cit springs serving to maintain the type-bars 92 in upright position wherein their typecarrying ends rest against the yielding facing 97 of an upwardly extending arm 98 rigidly attached to one of the frame-monk hers 6% by means of the screws 99. y Secured upon the machine bed by ineans of a screw 100 is a flat butler-spring 101 slightly inclined above the face of the bed-plate and extending toward the printing aperture 91. This spring serves as a butter to produce a quick recoil of the type after a printing iinpact.

Plournaled in a'bearing of the frame is a push-rod S-t provided at its upper end with a button and ha ring its laterally notched lower end embraced by the fork 102 of a spacing lever 103 loosely journaled upon the stud-screw 101 depending from one of the frame-members (Figs. 8 and The lower edge of the lever 103 rests upon the universal bar 09 and may be actuated by de pressing the push-rod 81 to rock the shaft 10 and thereby effect the advance of the work-carrier without the actuation of the punching and printing elements.

Arranged over the bed-plate sections 2 upon opposite sides of the slot 3 intermediate the guide-bar Ti and the end of the bed plate adjacent the stop 63 are the tlat shieldplates 105 which are secured upon the bedplate by means of screws 106 with interposed washers 107 (Figs. 1 and The bectplate is formed upon its opposite edges with the standing guide-ribs 2 for guiding the edges oi the record-card 10S beneath the punchinnand printing implements, the advance edge or the card being directed downwardly upon the bed-plate by means of the upwardly inclined fingers 109 extending from one edge of the guide-bar T7.

The. manifoldor duplication-sheet 110 provided on its face near one edge with a longitudinally extending band 111 ct carbon coating (Fig. 10) and upon its back with two similar bands 112 and 113 (Fig. 11).

To prepare this sheet for insertion in the machine, the marginal portion is folded upon the body portion along the line of perforations 11th from left to right 10) to form a told 110 and then reversely upon a .line at the opposite edge of the carbon-hand 111 to form a superposed fold 110, as represented in Fig. 12, the carbon-band 11 3 resting upon the margin of the upper face of the record-card 10S, and the carboncoated faces of the flaps 110' and 110 being presented in the same direction. i ls thus tolded the duplication sheetis cesigned to correspond substantially in length and width with the record-card 10S and both are inserted in the holder in the relation 12 with one end resting against the stop'lug resting upon the lower clamping jaw of the block 11 upon which it is clamped by means of the spring-pressed upper jaw 12 as represented in Fig. 2.

Bis will be observech the carbon-coated portions of the sheet 110 when in operative position overlie the margin of the recordeard at the head of the several columns of figures, and in the operation of the machine the depression of the several keys in the faces of the flap 110 and the marginal porlion of the body of the sheet, and also upon the margin of the record-card beneath the same. At the completion of the record producing operation. the clamp-lever 13 is tilted (as represented in dotted lines in Fig. 2; to release the record-sheets which are removed and the folded marginal portion of the sheet 110 detached at the line of perforation 114. therebyproducing three facsimile rec" ords for distribution in different record departments or bureaus, the perforated rec ord-card 108 being the one employed in the subsequent tabulating operation in connection with appropriate apparatus.

The duplication sheet 110 is preferably made of such .width that. when folded as described, it will be loosely embraced by the guide-ribs 2" the bed-plate 2- to insure its maintaining proper relation. with the record-card in the printing and punching operation, but it is evident that this sheet will perform its proper function if made narrower, with suitahle provision for holding it in register with the printing elements and the rccord-card 108. l

That portion of the feeding mechanism disposed outside of the body of the machine frame is preferably inclosed within a detachable housing 115 secured to the frame plate '21 by means of screws 116 (Fig. 1).,

To shield the type-liars from disarrangenient (ii-injury, segmental cox or housing 117 may be secured upon the frame by means ot fastening screws 118 so as to entirely inclose the parts of the printing mechanism exterior to the machine tran'ie.

From the foregoing description it is evi dent that the present improvement may he embodied in widel different forms of mechanism for producing record-cards or other toemedia such as those herein described, and that the specific mechanism disclosed herein is not therefore material to the present invention.
