machine having a movable head portionand a cooperating fixed portion. The head'assembly may, be arranged to feed successive sections of a ticketstrip to printing position, this assembly also being provided with cutting mechanism to sever 4 the strip into separate tickets, if desired. In some respects the present invention affords an improved machine of the general character disclosed in my United States Patent No. 1,980,576,

issued November 13, 1934, and my United States Patent No. 2,007,526, issued July 9, 1935.

The present machine is particularly adapted to receive ticket strips of the character disclosed l5 and claimed in my copending application Serial No. 136,599, filed on even date herewith. Such ticket strips may comprise ticket sections separated by short feed slots and by slits aligned with the slots, there being narrow connecting necks 20 between adjoining sections at the ends of the slots. Accordingly such. a strip may readily be folded along lines between adjoining tickets. A ticket strip of this character may be supplied to a user of the printing machine in a compact bun- 5 die wherein the strip is folded back and forth on itself, the end of the strip being fed into the printing machine so that the adjoining part of the strip possesses a zigzag form.

In accordance with this invention, the oscillat-v whichmay straddle the feeding finger in its advanced position and which may sever or chop the connecting necks between adjoining tickets. The knife may be automatically operable in response to the movement of the head, it being understood that the latter and the feeding mechanism preferably are operated from a single cam as taught in my above-identified patents. The cutter may thus be operated by the relative motion occurring between the head and the fixed frame of the machine during each cycle of operation, so that no additional cam mechanism or the like is necessary, the various elements of the machine being arranged so that a printed ticket is advanced to a position to be cut from the strip as the head tion.

. (Cl. 101-288) This invention relates to an improved printing rises away fromthe printing assembly. Accordingly each printed ticket is severed from the strip immediately after printing. Such an arrange- 'ment is also advantageous when a printing wheel assembly is employed, permitting the strip to be 5 severed close to a printed zone without interferencerby the assembly or necessity for an extra movement of the ticket to bring it to cutting posi- In the accompanying drawings: 10 Fig. 1 is a side elevation of a machine con- 'structed in accordance with this invention;

In general, a machine of the type provided by the present invention may include a base I and suitable driving mechanism of the same type disclosed in my above-identified patents. The

. driving. mechanism may be controlled by a suit- No. 2,007,526 so that the machine may operate to print a predetermined number of tickets. A linkage L causes the platen frame or head 31 to swing in resp'pnse to actuation by a barrel cam 25, while this linkage may also include a link I to actuate a feed slide II and feed finger I2 (Fig. 4)

A-ticket strip 8 may be employed with a machine of this character (Fig. 9). Such a strip B may comprise a plurality of tickets T separated by feed slots 2 with elongate slits 4 aligned with these slots, there being narrow connecting necks at the ends of the slots separating the same from from the slits. Such a strip may be folded back and forth on itself, as shown at the left of Fig. 1,

to afford a compact rectangular package from which the end of the strip may extend in zigzag form to the machine.

The head 31 includes a main frame member 38 having a pivotal connection 40 with the fixed frame of the machine and having a rather steeply inclined plate portion 4| (Fig. 11). A wall portion 42 extends from the plate portion 4I' to a front flange 8, to which the rubber platen block 85 is secured. The head 31 also includes a lower guide plate 44 which affords a'channel in which the feed slide II is mounted. A substantially semicircular sheet metal guide 201s secured to the inclined portion M of the head 21. as shown in Fig. 1, this guide being arranged to engage the lower surface of a ticket strip and to direct the same downwardly to the inclined por-. tion 4| of the head.

The margins of the ticket strip may be received by opposite angle members 22 which are adjustably mounted upon the inclined part ll of the head. These angle members are secured to blocks 23 (Fig. 2) which are slidable in channels M in the head portion 4I, suitable slots 4I (Fig. 4) extending along these channels so that thumb screws 24 may extend through the slots to permit clamping of the blocks and angles in adjusted position. Accordingly the width of the guideway provided by the angles 22 may be varied to accommodate ticket strips of different widths. The angles 22 are inclined downwardly, as shown in Fig. 1, but their lower ends are curved to approach a slightly inclined path which is followed by the ticket strip as it approaches the printing mechanism. A metal retaining member 2| is supported by elements 2I extending from the frame 38 of the head. This retaining member is arranged so that its edge may engage the upper surface of the ticket strip between the angles 22.

The endof the feed slide II is beveled, as designated by the numeral II (Fig. 13) adjoining the printing wheel or type assembly W, and this end of the slide II is provided with a channel over which a thin metal plate I6 extends. The feed finger I2 has an end portion engaging an opening I4 in this plate and has an opposite pronglike end I3 extending through an opening 15 in the plate. A spring I9 (Fig. 4) yieldably urges the prong-like end I3 of the feed finger upwardly.

The wall 42 of the head frame 38 is milled out to provide a guide channel 42 (Figs. 4, 5 and 11) along which a plate 80 is slidable, this plate being clamped in adjusted position by a hand bolt 84-84 A shield III is secured to the lower part of the member 80 to be movable therewith. This shield underlies the end portions of the guides 22 and the end portionoi the retaining member 2| (Fig. 6) and the pronged end I3. of the feed finger I2 is yieldably pressed in engagement with the lower surface of this shield until it reaches the edge of the same; whereupon the prong may to printing position beneath the platen block 80. l

The latter is disposed in the same general manner .as taught by my above-identified patents with reference to a printing wheel assembly W over which a printing ribbon B. may extend.

The position of the shield 0| may be adjusted by loosening the hand bolt 04-84 and sliding the part 80 along the guideway 42. Such an adjustment may be made when it is desired to vary the eifective feeding stroke of feed finger I2 to accommodate tickets of different sizes. When the head is moved downwardlyto printing position (Fig. .6) by the cam 25 and linkage L, the platen block 85 presses the ticket strip against the ribbon R. and the end of the strip is printed. .As the head then moves upwardly away from the assembly W, the slide II and the feed finger I2 are advanced by the link .10 from the position shown in dot and dash lines in Fig. 4 to the position shown in full lines, the feed finger feeding the next ticket section to printing position while the printed ticket section is advanced away from the platen block 85. The feed finger 'I2 advances somewhat beyond the block 85, as

without necessity for special actuating mecha-' nism such as cam means or the like.

To this end an operating link I 0| (Fig. 3) has a pivotal connection I 06 with the fixed frame of the machine adjoining the end of the type assembly W (Fig. 1). The upper part of this link has a threaded connection with a rod I02 which is provided with' stop nuts I03 that are engageable with the lower end of a sleeve I04 that is slidable on the rod I02 and slidable in a block I01. A stud I I0 extends from the block I01, and a rocker I II has a pivotal connection with the stud II 0, the rear end of the rocker III also having a pivotal connection I I2 (Fig. 4) with the wall I2 of the frame member 38. The rocker III is providedwith depending ear portions II4 (Fig. 12) which receive the ends of a pintle pin I I5 which is fixed to a'knife supporting plate I20. The latter is provided with an adjustable set screw II! that slidably engages the face of the flange I I8 (Fig. 6), and it is also provided with an angular extension I22 which is yieldably urged upwardly by a a compression spring I 23, the lower portion of which is disposed in a socket in the flange H8. The rocker III is provided with a depending extension I3I upon which a set screw I32 is mounted so that the end of this screw engages the inner face of the fiange H8.

The upper end of the sleeve I 04 is provided with a collar I04 which is engageable with a compression spring I05 that is held inplace by adjusting nuts I08 and I09 secured to the upper end of rod I02.

When the head 31 is in printing position, the sleeve I04 may be lifted to the position shown in Fig. 6 relative to the head 31. As the head moves upwardly, the spring I 05 tends to cause the sleeve I04 to slide in the block I01 until the flange I 04 at the upper end of the sleeve engages the upper surface of the block I0'I, whereupon continued movement of the head tends to cause the ants straight line path. Accordingly the knife isadjustment of the position of the cutting edges of the knife, I relative to the pathof the feed finger .12 so that the knife may be positioned accurately to cut the connecting necks of the strip S in alignment with the slits 4. The retaining nuts I08 and vI09 may be loosened, if desired, so that the knife I00 is not pressed down with as much force when the head reaches the upper end of its path, so that the knife may merely crease the connecting necks 5 of'the strip rather than entirely severing the same, or these nuts may be still further loosened so that the knife does not operate except when manually actuated by pressure on the rocker III, which affords a handle for this purpose. Thus, for example, it may be desired to print a plurality of tickets without separating them by cutting and then to cut such a set of tickets from the remainder of the strip by manual actuation of the knife.

As shown particularly in Fig. 3, the knife I00 0 of the knife and has moved the feed slot into position wherein the slits 4 of the strip are aligned with the cutting edges of the knife so that the necks 5 may be cut in alignment with these slits. Thus a separate printed ticket T 55 of the character shown in Fig. 14 is provided,

such a ticket being characterized by cut edges extending to a shallow cut reentrant portion 2 provided by a half of the original feed slot 2 of the ticket strip. The printing on such a ticket 5 maybe arranged in the manner described in my United States Patent No. 2,007,526.

Inorder to permit the cutting of the ticket strip by the knife I00 while, the strip is not being moved, a yieldable stop member I 40 (Fig. 4) limits the movement of the slide II at the advance end of its path, it being understood that the link I0 is being yieldabl actuated by the linkage L through this portion-of the cycle. Accordingly, although the link I0 is being yieldably actuated, its movement and that of the slide II is halted while the knife chops the printed ticket from the ticket strip.

The slide II is adjustably connected to the link I0 so that the advance position of the slide finger I2, the pronged portion I3 of this finger- II and ofthe feed finger 12 may be adjustably varied. For this purpose the slide 11 is provided with a cut-away portion between similar rabbeted extensions II (Figs. 2 and 16). An upper clamping plate 8| slidably engages these rabbeted portions II and receivesthe threaded end of a clamping screw 11 which extends through a lower clamping plate I8. When the screw 11 is tightened, the plate I8 is thus pressed against the lower surfaces. of. the extensions II' of the slide, while the member 8| is pressed against the horizontal surfaces of the rabbeted parts of the portions II The end of the member I8 is engageablelwitb the yieldable stop I40 to limit the yieldable movement of the slide (Fig. 4).

A plate 80 is secured by screws (Fig. 15) to the ends of the extensions II b of the slide II and is provided with a cutout portion received in a groove in an adjusting nut 82 (Fig. 4) which is threaded onto a stud 83 fixed to and projecting from the block 'I8. Accordingly when the clamping screw 11 is loosened, the adjusting screw 02 may be rotated to move the members I8 and BI toward or away from the plate 06 which is fixed to the end of slide 'II, and accordingly the relationship of the slide to the link I0 may be adjustable, while the end of the slide as well as the feed finger 12 maybe advanced different distances so that under some conditions of adjustment the feed finger may be spaced at a greater] distance fromthe platen block 05. v

The position of the'knife I00 relative to the platen block can also'be varied so that the position of the printed indicia relative to the feed slots or the edges of the severed ticketsmay be varied as'desired to suit different requirements. Thus, under some operating conditions the line of printed indicia may be quite close to one edge of the ticket, while under other conditions it may be desirable to have the line of printed indicia substantially midway between the parallel edges of the ticket. The adjustable arrangement of the slide 'II and of the knife I00 permits these desirable results, it being understood that the knife I00 may be adjusted so that it will sever the ticket strip when thefeed finger I2 has moved to a point in substantial registration with the knife as shown, for example, in Fig. '7.

A machine of this type'may not only feed ticket strips of different widths but may also feed such strips comprising tickets having a plurality of sections, each of which receives one printing impression. Fig. 10 illustrates such a strip S comprising tickets T each of which have two sections. feed slots 2 and slits 4 of the type shown in Fig. 9, the tickets being Joined by the narrow connecting necks 5; Between the sections of each-ticket a feed slot 5 may be provided which is wider than the feed slots 5, so that the knife I00 may 1 pass through this wider slot without necessity for cutting the material. Obviously the strip S is fed forward section by section to printing position but the knife is only effective in cutting sepbundle with portions of the strip folded back and forth on itself. One end of the strip is lifted from the bundle to possess a more or less zigzag form, as shown in Fig. 1, and the endof this porin my last-identified United States patent so that the machine is set to print the desired number of tickets. The machine may then be started in operation, whereupon the first advance movement of the feed finger feeds the first ticket section beneath the platen 85 and the finger is retracted as the head'moves downwardly to press the ticket section against the ribbon R of the printing wheel assembly. Thereupon the head swings upwardly away from its printing position as the feed finger 12 engages the feed slot adjoining the printed ticket section and advances this section beyond the plates 85 (Fig. '7)

As the head approaches the upper end of its path, the linkage associated with the cutter I is effective in moving the cutter downwardly, so that the necks of the ticket strip may be severed (Fig. 8), thus affording a separate printed ticket T through the necks of the-ticket which is being pressed against the plate 16 on the feed slide II, the prong 13 of the feed finger I2 is in its advanced position and the actuating linkage for the feed slide is being held against movement by the stop member H0 (Fig. 4). As the head starts downwardly toward printing position, the feed slide moves away from the platen and the prong I3 is disengaged from the edge of the severed strip.

After the next printing operation has been effected, the feed finger starts its advance movement, the prong 13 being pressed yieldably against the shield 8! and against the lower surface of the ticket strip until it finds its way into the feed opening 2 next to the end section of the strip, whereupon the cycle is repeated.

It is evident that the'shield 80 may be adjusted to vary the effective path of the prong 13 wherein it may engage the strip, thus permitting the feeding of ticket sections of different widths. Obviously when a ticket strip of the type shown in Fig. is being printed, the cutter I00, although operated once during each printing cycle, is not effective in tending to separate sections of a ticket from each other but is effective in separating the successive tickets from the strip. The cutter can be arranged to operate once during each printing cycle, while the ticket strips may be arranged with certain sections having connecting portions therebetween that lie wholly within the path of the knife so that such connecting portions are severed entirely to separate such sections, the strip having other connecting portions between other sections disposed outside of the path of the cutter, so that these sections are not entirely separated by the cutter and may remain connected to each other when leaving the machine. Thus the tickets may be arranged with any desired number of sections, each of which are printed and remain attached to each other, although the tickets themselves are separated by the cutter. Furthermore, the adjustable arrangement of the feed slide 'II and of the cutter I00 permits the printing of the ticket sections so that the line of indicia may be spaced as desired be- As the cutter Hill is moving downwardly amass-z 1 tween the transverse edges of the ticket section.

The arrangement of the strip feeding means and of the cutter disclosed herein is particularly advantageous when employed in combination with a printing assembly comprising a plurality of adjustable type carrying wheels to permit the printed ticket immediately to be severed from the ticket strip. Accordingly when the operation of the machine is stopped there are no printed tickets'remaining in the machine which are not severed from the strip. The arrangement of the knife I00, so that it cooperates with the end of the feed slide 10 in severing a ticket from the strip, permits the cutting or severing action to take place close to the platen even when a relatively large type wheel assembly is employed, such as is illustrated herein.

It should be understood that the present disclosure is i'or the purpose of illustra ion only and that this inventionincludes all modifications and equivalents which fall within the scope of the appended claims.
