This invention is for improvements in ticket issuing machines wherein a printing mechanism is operable to select automatically a character or group of characters (for eX- ample, numerals) from a range and print the same upon a ticket.
According to the present inventionthere 1s provided a'ticket printing and issuing niachine wherein a rotary printing cylinder is arranged to carry one or more type wheels, operable by setting mechanism, to be moved automatically into a selected position relatively to the printing cylinder as the same rotates and prior to the printing operation.
13 Further, according to the present invention there is provided a ticket issuing and printing machine wherein mechanism, operable Iby setting mechanism, is arranged to engage with a ticket severed from a web and feed the same forwardly through the inachine in such a manner that the ticket receives a printed impression from one or more type wheels operable by the said settmg mechanism to be moved automatically into a selected position prior to the ticket receiving an impression therefrom.
Again, according to the present invention there is provided a ticket printing and issuing machine wherein a printing mechanism S3 is arranged to carry one or more type wheels operable by setting mechanism to be moved automatically into a selected position relatively to the printing mechanism prior to the printing operation and to feed the material y to be printed upon forwardly as each impression is being printed thereon.

Referring to the drawings a series of operating keys 1, 1 are pivotally mounted upon a spindle 2, carried by frame members 3, 31. Each of the keys 1( is provided with an ez'- tension 4 which is normally arranged to lie beneath a universal clutch bar 5, which is connected by links 6 to a rod 7 rigidly mounted in the arms of a stirrup member 8 secured to a spindle 9 mounted in bearings in the frame members 3, 31. The rod 7 is arranged to extend through an aperture 10 in the frame 80 member 3 and is secured to one end of an arm 11 the other end of which is secured to the spindle 9 which is arranged also to project through the frame member 3. The arm 11 is connected to a spring 12 (Figure 85 2) which normally ensures that the clutch bar 5 abn-ts against stops 13 iXed to the frame of the machine. A stop 14 provided on the aim 11 is arranged normally to engage with an arm 15 keyed to a shaft 16 which 90 carriers a type cylinder 17. Pivoted to the arm 15 is a catch 18 provided at one end thereof with a tooth 19. The catch 18 is normally maintained by the stop 14 (against the influence of a spring 20) in the position shown in Figure 2.
The end of the spindle 9 remote from the `arm 11 has rigidly secured thereto a switch actuating arm 22 provided with a pin 23 and also pivotally supports a switch arm 21 100 which is normally held in engagement with the pin 23 by a spring 24. The depression of any one of the keys l causes the extenslon 4 thereof to 'engage the universal clutch bar 5 and lift the same clear of the stops 13. The spring 12 thereupon moves the arm 11,
together with the bar 7 and clutch bar 5 in the direction of the arrow b (Figure 2) until the arm 11 contacts with a stop 121, where upon the bar 7 and clutch bar 5 assume the position shown in Figure 7. Further, any movement of' the arm 11 eilects a partial rotation of the spindle 9 which causes the pin 23 on the arm 22 (Figure 4) to close the switch, (Figure 5) and complete the electri- V:al circuit of a driving motor 27.
The movement of the arm 11 also moves the stop 14 out ofengagement with thel arm 15 and the catch 18'and permits the spring to move the tooth 19 on the catch 18 into engagement with one of a seriesI ot teeth 28 formed on a sprocket wheel 2S) driven by gearing from the spindle of thal motor 27 and thereby cause the shaft- 16 to rotate in the direction of the arrow c (Figure (i).
The bar 7 has connected thereto a locking bar 30 which, upon the movement oi. the arm 11, is moved into engagement with the underside of the extension 4 of a depression key and maintains the same in the depressed position whilst at the same time engaging with the upper side oi the extension 4 of the remaining keys so as to lock the same against depression.
As the shaft 1G rotates a cam 31 mounted thereon causes a roller 32 carried by an arm 33 to move towards the axis of rotation of the shaft 1. The arm 33 is carried upon a pivot 33a xed relatively to the machine. Connected to the free end of arm 33 are two links 34 the free, ends of which are arranged in engagement with 36 of setting bars 37 and 38. The setting bars 37 and 38 are always urged towards one another by a spring 3) (Figure 7) so that upon the described movement of the cam 31 the setting bars 37 and 38 are moved about spindles 40 by the spring 39. Each key is provided with two abutments 41, 42 arranged respectively above and below the axis of rotation thereof and which, when a key is depressed, are moved into the path of move ment of the setting bars 37. 38 to arrest the movement of the same in the position indicated, for example, by dot and dash positions of the setting bars in Figure 7. The length of the abutments 41-42, Vary with each key, thus ensuring that the amount of movemenJ of the setting bars varies with the key that is depressed.
Pivoted upon the spindles 40 are two bell crank levers 43 the arms 44 of which are normally maintained, by means of springs 4G, in contact with bars 45 integral with the setting bars 37, 38. The arms 47 of the bell crank pins 35 carried by armslevers 43 are arranged in engagement with one limb 48 of a bell crank lever 48, 49, pivot ally mounted upon the machine frame at 50 (Figure Each of the bell crank levers 48, 49 carry at the end of the arm 49 a yoke 51 arranged in engagement with an annular groove 52 formed in a sleeve 53 slidable axially upon the shaft 1G. The sleeves 53 each carry a guide 54 in engagement with a guide rod 55 carried on the printing cylinder 17 so that the said sleeves are always maintained in fixed rotational relationship with the printing cylinder 17. The sleeves 53 are each provided with radial stops 56 for a purpose hereinafter described.
lt will be observed from the foregoing that the extent of the movements of the sleeves 53 on the shaft 1G is detern'lined by the key which is depressed.
ljivotally mounted upon the printing cylin der are two type wheels 57, 58 each having a series ol type faces thereon. In the arrangement shown in the drawings each type wheel has 10 facets and inscribed upon the facets of the type wheel 57 are the numerals from 0 to S), whilst the facets of the type wheel 58 have inscribed thereon an inscription No, the numerals 1 to 8, and one blank tace. Fixed to each of the type wheels 57, 58 are stepped cylinders 59 each having a series of abutments 60 corresponding in number and disposition to the facets on the type wheels 57 and 58. The stepped cylinders 5f) are maintained in engagement with the radial stops 5G by coiled springs 61, housed in the type wheels 57 and 58 in the manner indicated in Figure 10.
In the normal position of the stops 5G and the stepped cylinders 59 the type facets Nd and 0 are maintained adjacent to one another so that if the printing cylinder 17 is rotated the said facets would receive a supply of ink from an ink roller 117.
lVhen a key is depressed the cylinder 17 commences to rotate and one or both of the sleeves 53 is or are moved along the shaft 16. The corresponding stepped cylinders 59 are thereiuion released and rotated by the spring 61 until the abutments 60 corresponding with the key depressed engage with the corresponding radial stops 56 which arrest the vmovement of the type wheels to bring the numbered type facets corresponding to the key depressed into register with the surface of revolution generated by the printing cylinder.
The continued rotation of the printing cylinder 17 causes the type wheels 57, 58 and other type members 171 and 72 carried by the printing cylinder to Contact with the ink roller 117 and thereafter engage and feed' forwardly a portion severed from a ticket web automatically fed, in a manner hereinafter described into engagement with an impression 'relier 25'. The ltieleet ie thereby printed and at the same'time moved through a guide 251 into engagement with a roller '118 carried upona spindle 1191rotatably mounted in bearings in the machine frame. The spindle 119 carriespa pulley `120 which is operably connected by means of a sprin belt 121 to a pulley carried upon a sproc et wheel 122 arranged in mesh with the driving gear which connects the motor 27 with the shaft 16 (Figure 2). 1T he rotation of the roller 118 causes the ticket yto be delivered through a slot 252 in the cover of the machine.
In the example illustrated in Figure 7 the key 35 has been depressed and the setting bars 37, 38 have been moved into the position indicated by the dot and dash lines thereby moving thel sleeves 53 and the radial stops 56 into the positions indicated by the dot and dash lines in Figure 3, to permit the stepped cylinders 59 to move the type wheels 57, 58 until the facets corresponding to` numerals 3 and' 5 are brought adjacent to one another and into register with the surface of evolution generated by the printing cylin- Further, when a key is depressed stops are moved out of engagement with arms 64 provided upon a toothed quadrant 63.
As the type wheels 57, 58 are being rotated by the springs 61 pinions 62 carried thereby are arranged to move the toothed quadrants 63 and arms 64 relatively to the printing cylinder whereby the type wheels after each print ng operation are returned to the position wherein the facets display the inscription Na and O.
To effect this return movement a cam 66 mounted upon the shaft 16 (Figure 8) comes into operation, towards the latter part of each complete revolution of the printing cylinder 17, to engage an arm 67 mounted upon the stirrup member 8 and rock the stirrup member about the axis of the shaft 9 and thereby move the stop members 65 into the path of the arms 64 to arrest the movement of the same and thereby cause the sectors 63, 63 to rotatev the type wheels 57,58 until the 4inscription Na and the numeral 0 are arranged adjacent to one another and in register with the surface of revolution generated by the printing cylinder 17. At about the Asame time the rotation of the shaft 16 causes the cam 31 to move the setting bars 37, 38 through the medium of the links 34 back to the normal position, which permits the springs 46 to actuate the bell crank levers 43,
and 48, 49 to move the sleeves 53 back to the position indicated in full lines in Figure 3 Where the stop members 56 abut against the steps of the c vlinders 59 and ensure that the type wheels 5 and 58 are maintained in the position set outabove. The actuation of the .stirrup member 8 moves the locking bar 30k to the left in Figure 7, which permits the spring 21 to return the depressed key into the normal position. Further, the movement of the stirrup member 8 also moves the universal clutch bar 5 to the left in Figure 7 clear of the key extensions 4 so that the keys 1 cannot move the clutch bar 5.
Immediately the cam 66 engages the arm 67, the spindle 9 is rocked about 4the axis thereof and moves the arm 22 and its associate'd pin 23 out of engagement with the switch arm 2l into the position indicated in dot and dash lines in` Figure 5 but simultaneously a cam 68 :mounted upon the shaft 16 co-acts cated by dot and dash lines iii Figure 5 so` as to maintain the switch ina closed position.
When the stirrup member 8 is in the position indicated above the stop 14 is arranged in the path of the arm 15 and the catch 18 so that the continued movement of the shaft 16 causes the catch 18 to be declutclied from the sprocket wheel 29 and the arm 1.5 will thereafter abut against the stop 14 and arrest the movement of the printing cylinder.
As the printing cylinder 17 is arrested, the arm 67 is released from the cam 66 and so frees the stirrup member 8, which under the influence of the sprin g 12 returns to its initial postion and moves the clutch bar 5 above the extensions 4 of the keys 1, and simultaneously the cam 68 releases the switch arm 21 and permits the spring 24 to move the same so as to open the circuit of the motor 27.
The feeding of ticket blanks into operative relationship with the printing mechanism above described is accomplished in the following manner.
A web of material 103 in the form of a reel is mounted upon a spindle 1031 revolubly mounted in a bracket 1032 fixed in the lower portion of the machine casing. (Figures 1 and 2.)
The free end of the web 103 is initially fed by hand into the lower end of a guide 104 (Figur-e 6) and thence into a guide 111 where the same engages with the impression roller 25.
As the free edge of the web is moved into engagement with the impression roller 25 the same engages with a pair of abutments 112, formed upon a pivotally mounted member 113 arranged normally to extend across the guide 111. The free edge of the web moves the member 113 about its pivot in the direction of the arrow d (Figure 6) into the position indicated in Figure 7, against the iniuence of a spring (not shown).
Connected to the member 113 is one end of a link 114 the other end ofwhich engages with a pin 115 fixed to a stop member 26 pivotally mounted upon a spindle 40 carried by the frame of the machine. If a web of material is located in engagement with the roller 25 the stop member is moved into the position indicated in Figure 7. On the other hand the stop member 26 is arranged to extend above the universal clutch bar 5 and prevent 1 the same from being raised unless a web of material is disposed in engagement with the impression roller 25.
Thus assuming that the free edge of the web is in engagement with the roller 25, and that one of the keys is depressed the machine commences to operate, and a guillotine 110 actuated by a pin 108 on a feeding disc 105 driven from the main drive severs a ticket from the web. After a predetermined interval the disc 105 engages with the free end of the severed web and feeds the same forwardlyrby an amount equal to the length of one ticket, whilst the printing cylinder 17 in cri-operation with the roller 25 prints and feeds the severed ticket into engagement with lthe ejection roller 118 in the manner hereinbefore described.
In order to prevent more than one key at a.
time being depressed a row of balls 71 is ar- ,ranged adjacent the lower edges of the keys 1 so as to provide a total free space between all the balls sufhcient to permit only of the admittance of one key lever.
An additional type wheel 72 having a plurality of type faces arranged around the periphery thereof is pivotally mounted upon the type cylinder 17 and is provided with a ratchet wheel 73 having teeth equal in number to the type faces. The ratchet wheel 73 co-acts with a. spring actuated detent 74 (Figure 6) which ensures that one type face is always in register with the surface of revolution generated by the printing cylinder. A pin 7G is fixed to a spindle 75 which is rotatably mounted in bearings in the frame members 3, 31. lThe path of rotation of the pin 76 is in the plane of rotation of the ratchet wheel 73 and is arranged to intercept the same. The spindle is provided at one end with a bevel wheel 77 arranged in mesh with a second bevel wheel 78 carried at one end of a spindle 79 mounted in bearings in the frame member 31. The free end of the spindle 79 extends through the front of the casing of the machine and is provided with a knob 80.
The arrangement is such that upon one complete rotation of the knob 8O the spindles 79 and 75 cause the pin 76 to engage with the ratchet wheel 73 and move the type wheel 72 so as to bring the next adjacent type face n the type wheel 72 into register with the s rface of revolution generated by the printing cylinder. A pin 82 mounted upon the shaft 7 9 (Figure 11) is so arranged that when the latter is rotated the pin is moved into engagement with a pivotally mounted notched member 83 operable to produce the well known Geneva movement. The member 83 is arranged to rotate an indicator 81 provided on the exterior of the machine (Figure 1) to indicate which of the type faces of the type Wheel 72 is in registei'fwith the surface of revolution generated by the printing cylinder The notched member 83 is provided with n pin 84: which at the end of one complete revolution of the notched member 83 and the type wheel 72 engages with one end of a lever 85 pivoted to the machine frame (Figure 11) and prevents further rotation of the knob 80.
The lever 85 which is arranged so as to be accessible only by an authorised person, may
be movedmanually against the influence of a spring, in the direction of the arrow (Fi ure 11) and out of engagement with the pln 84 so that the knob 80 may be rotated to move the type wheel 72 through a further revolution.
As it is essential that the machine cannot be operated whilst the type Wheel is being moved, the spindle 79 is provided with a cam disc 87 having two diametrically disposed notches 88 and 89. In the normal position of operation of the machine the notch 88 is arranged to engage with one end of a plunger 90, slidably mounted in the frame of the n1a chine and which is held in engagement with the cam 8T through the medium of a spring 91 (Figure 12). The other end of the plunger' 90 forms an abutment for one end of the row of .balls 71 and in the position shown in Figure 12 ensures the free space between the balls previously referred to. It will be observed, however, that when the knob 80 is operated and the cam 87 rotates in the direction of the arrow (Figure 12) the plunger 90 is moved by the cam and takes up the free space between the balls 71 and prevents the depression of a key, whilst on the other hand the depression of a key l prevents the rotation of the knob 80.
The notch 89 is made equal to half the depth of the notch 88 and is provided so as to permit the operator to rotate the spindle 79 in the reverse direction if he should overrun the correct position, but prevents the spindle being rotated more than half a revolution in the reverse direction.
Two counters 92, one serving as a check against the other, are provided for the purpose of furnishing a record of the total number of tickets issued by the machine. The actuating pin of each counter is connected to one end of a link 93, the other end of which is provided with a slot 102 arranged to engage with a rod 95 carried by a pivoted stirrup member 9G and which is operably connected to an eccentric 97 mounted upon the shaft 16 Fi guz'e 3). The links 93 are normally maintained in the position indicated in Figure 6 by the rod 95 acting against the iniiuence of springs 94. Upon the rotation of the shaft 16 the eccentric 97 moves the rod 95 (Figure 13) which permits the springs 94 to move the links 93 so that extensions 98 are moved through apertures 99 in a pivoted member 100.
The member 100, however, is arranged under the control of a test key 11 which when .operated totest the machine movesthe apertures onto-f linewith Vthe extensions 98 of the link 93 so as to prevent the operation of the counters for a test operation. W'hen the link 93 is moved inthe reverse direction by the eccen.
It will be observed that the type surfaces of .the type cylinder 17 are relatively widely spaced around a circle of comparatively large diameter, but that as the feeding of the ticket forwardly during'the printing process is-accomplished solely by the frictional engagement of the type surfaces with the ticket, the
impressions received by theticket will be disposed thereon in substantially close proximity to one another. l
