TICKET SEVERING DEVICE Filed May 17, 1949 2 SHEETS-SHEET l INVENTOR5 .54" -W BY 4 m 'ljtr/ch/er Oct. 14, 1952 E. w. MOGHAN EI'AL TICKET SEVERING DEVICE 2 Sl-IEETSSHEET 2 Filed May 17, 1949 Patented Oct. 14, 1952 1 UNITED STAT TICKET SEVERING DEVICE Elmer Wayne McGhan and Henry S. Ungerleider, Salt Lake City, Utah Application May 17, 1949, Serial No. 93,656

1 1 This invention relates to ticket dispensing at theatres, games, contests or'any other place where jadmission by ticket is essential, and has for its object tov provide a new and highly efficient method of dispensing the tickets to the purchaser and automatically retaining a portion of each ticketjforuse of the sellerito check the number of ItiCkQtSfSOld, the type sold and the price of the tickets sold, yet retainingfrom the public,'or the public information, which might lead to their knowing the number of ticket-sales. This feature is covered by our co-pending patent application Serial Number 54,472, filed in the United States Patent Office October" 14, 1948. A further object of this invention is to provide ahattachment which'maybe used in automatic ticket dispensing machines now on the market to separate the portion of the ticket which goes to the public from that portion which is retained by the theatre, or seller, for his check on the tickets sold. e

Astill further object is to provide a new and "highly efficient method, or means, of separating one strip of perforate tickets from another at the point of distribution theonly requisite being that the tickets be perforatelongitudinally. This de vice might also be used to separate strips of cardboard of any type just so long" as they are perforate where it is desired to separate them.

These objects we accomplish with the device illustratedin the accompanying drawings, in which similar numerals and letters of reference indicate like parts throughout the several views,

"as described in the specifications forming a part ofthis application and. pointed out in the appended claims.

In the drawings Figure 1 is a partial section longitudinally of one of the separating devices showing how the strips are separated, parts shown sectioned.

Figure 2 is a perspective view of a ticket holding can showing our distributing device separating the tickets being dispensed fromthat portion which is being retained by the seller.

Figure 3 is'a view from that end of the device which is. toward the tickets showing the separatingf'and'turning curve oi. the portion used to guide the} retained portion of the "ticket back to the seller. 1. I I

Figure 4 shows a sample of one type of tickets which might be used as covered by our co-pending' application.

Figure 5 is a side elevation of one of the separating devices removed from the'can.

Figure 6 is an edge view of Figure 5.

v2 Figure 7 is a top view of-Fig ur e 5. Figure 8 is a side view of a ticket can used in dispensing machines which sell folded ticket strips showing our device in place. 3 Figure 9 is a view of our separating device used on a roll of tickets which-may be manually or machine distributed. I

- In the drawings we have shown our device as A, consisting of a base shown as a l J-shaped channel, or support body, 5, having the sidewalls B and I perforated to receive thetwo .spacedapart shafts 8 and 9. These shafts 8' and 9 carry large severing rollers iii and H, the rollsbeing of a thickness to match that width of the ticket which is passing thereunder. A central portion of the bottom or web lot the .channelsupport body 5 is stamped out and turned up as alcurved segment l2 with ,the curved portion acting as an initial guiding agent in connection with the rollers 10 and II for the tickets which are threaded under the first roller 10 which is the width, of the wider section'or ticket portion 0, of the ticket strip B, and then under strip B. The position oithe two rollers and .the

curved segment l2 guideand sever the strip.,

Of course the entireticket does not pass under both rollers but only under that roller whichis the. approximate width as thatportion of the ticket passing thereunder. This form of device may be used to separatetickets as shown in Figure 9,,or a ,curvedrace or guide channel 15 may be attached to the base 4 by' the'bolt H with the flanges keeping the narrow ticket portion D within the guide channel. This channel is shown as. substantially a jhalfjcircle to ,guide the severed strip back down beside 'the' ti ket holding box or can E, as shown Figuresjz'and 8. The ticket holding can E is; of any usualiype having. two narrow end wallsandtwoj wides ide walls so as to hold a continuousstripoi tickets fan-folded so that the can is five; tickets wide. One feature oi this device is that all rollers and channels are made oversize*iand the rollers mounted on the shaft with a sloppy fit to" overcomeanychance of fri t n on the fticketsjas they are dispensed.

., The channel, 15 'may be' mountedin a. box

by a "pivot rod 11; orirh bbu orjjsc rew. 14 may be passed through the end of the channel and through the end oixthe box E, or in some cases two bolts may be used if desired, however, it is thought that the pivotal mounting will be preferred as the entire device may then be pivoted out of the way of the tickets when the box is be- I the roller I'I ."Which,is the width of the retained portion -D of the ticket ing reloaded. One other modification may be made which will aid in the starting of the strip of tickets into the severing device and that is the roller shown as l8 in Figure 1, however this is more of a convenience and is not an essential part of the invention but such modifications may be made in the device without departing from the spirit of the invention or the scope of the appended claims, The curved segment l2 likewise is'a' convenience rather than an essential member as it acts as a guide to direct the major portion of the ticket for easy starting and lel shafts extending threading. The ticket is fed from left to right in Figures 1 and 5, for example, andthe major portion of the strip is pulled upwardly overthe periphery of the major roller Ill. The minor roller l i, which is of the same diameten holds the narrow portion of the strip of tickets down.

The actual severance of the two side by side portions of the ticket strips is not performed by the segment I2 but is entirely independent 'of this turned up. lug after the device is once in operationjUWhen'the ticket is pulled upwardly and to the right it is severed usually while still in contact with the roller. I0 butin any event a very short distance from the roller so that while the curved portion 12 is quite convenient in starting, the strip of tickets into 'the device it could be omitted entirely as can v the small 11eri8l I j is Having thus described our invention; we claim: I l In combination, a channel shaped base hav: ing a web and two side flanges, a pair of parallel transverse shafts mounted in the two side flanges of the. base, a first'roller mounted on one of said shafts" and of such diameter as to have its peii h r p ox mi h dja en s t and to, the web of the base while leaving a space between the adjacent shaft and the roller and between the webof' the base and the roller, and a s c nd r le n a d. ad a ent s aft ha s peripheryin close proximity to and clearing the web-and the first shaft, a guide member for defleeting material from the web toward the second shaft, said guide member having a sloping surface extending away from the end wall, toward the periphery of the major roller beyond the axis of, the roller, of'the same width as the major roller, and entirely to one'side of the minor roller, whereby a longitudinally perforated strip of tickets, passing between the rollers and. the web [andthenldirected away from the web toward saidiadjacent shaft by saidguidernember will be held in. part close to the web byv the second roller and therefore thestrip will be severed longitudinally betweenthe points of. contacts, of the stripandthe two rollers.- 7 7 2; The combinationof claim' 1 two rollers areof the same. diameterand. together they substantially fill the space. between the two side flanges of the base.
