EEPECIFIGATION forming part of Letters Patent N 0. 695,1 15, dated March 11, 1902.
Application filed September 21 1900- ,Serin1N0- fi (N0 l- To (tZZ whom it may concern.-
Be it known that we, WILFRED I. OHMER and JosnrH LnIrsoHUH, citizens of the United States, residing at Dayton, in the county of Montgomery and State of Ohio, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Ticket Issuing, Printing, and Recording Machines, of which the following is a specification, reference being had therein to the accompanying drawings.
This invention relates to certain new and useful improvements in ticket-issuing and fare-registering machines.
The general object of this invention is to provide banks of ticket issuing and registering mechanisms, particularly for issuing tickets for different fares and also for recording the number of tickets of each fare registered.
Another object of this invention is to pro- Vide roller-inkin g and roller-impression mechanism for properly inking type for impressing the fare, as also the date upon which the ticket was issued and from what place and to what place the passenger was going, upon a strip of paper which may be handed to the passenger.
This invention also relates to mechanism for operating a fare-indicating plate into and out of view.
This invention also relates to details of construction and arrangement hereinafter appearing, and particularly pointed out in the claims.
In the accompanying drawings, on which like reference-letters indicate corresponding parts, Figure 1 is a perspective view of this invention complete and ready for use; Fig.
l a rear elevation; Fig. 2, a sectional view on the line a: a: of Fig. 5 looking in the direction of the arrows; Fig. 3, a side elevation of theinvention with the casing removed; Fig. 4, a similar view to Fig. 3, but showing the opposite side; Fig. 5, a front elevation showing the casing inrdotted lines; Fig. 6, a detail View of a portion of the ticket-strip, showing a ticket printed thereon; Fig. 6, a plan view of the electrotype-plate bearing a portion of the characters to be impressed on the tickets;-Fig. 7, a plan view; Fig. 8, an edge view of the interior mechanism; Fig. 9, a detail perspective View of the inking and impression roll and supporting-bars; Fig. 10, a perspective view of a portion of a street-car with our improvements mounted therein, and Fig. 11 a detail view showing connection between one of the operating-tubes and one of the banks; Fig. 12, a detail perspective view of ticket-banks and showing an operating-rod for each bank disconnected from each other; Fig. 13, a sectional view on the line a of Fig. 12, and Fig. 14 a sectional View on the line 8 s of Fig. 10.
The letter A represents a shell or casing within which is'mounted one or more banks of ticket printing and registering mechanisms, such mechanisms each having a. pair of side plates 13, separated from each other, as shown in the drawings. On the interior of each plate is secured or otherwise formed a track or guideway 0, having two grooves or channels D and E therein. (See Fig. 2.) An
impression-roller F is supported in a pair of swinging side bars Gr, one end of each of which is pivo tally mounted upon'the respective studs H, which project through the slots I and into sliding racks J J, mounted in guides K on the outside of the plates B. (See Figs.3 and 4, particularly.) These racks are adapted to slide vertically in the guides K in unison with each other on the outside of the plates B, being connectedin the manner hereinafter set forth, and the rack J is provided with gear-teeth on one edge to mesh with the gear 29 for the pur pose hereinafter set forth, while the rack J is provided with gear-teeth on both of its vertical edges, so as to mesh with the gears 29 and with the gear 28, as hereinafter more particularly set forth. The shaft L, upon which the roller F is mounted, projects beyond each of the side bars G and into the grooves D and E-that is, when the impression-roller is operating to press a paper roll or strip M into contact with printing characters, hereinafter described, the ends of the shaft L are adapted to run in the grooves E, so that as the racks are slid along in their guides the bars G are carried therewith, the racks being on the out side of the plates B, while the bars are on the inside. This causes the shaft L to travel permits such ends to enter the grooves D. As soon as this takes place the trip device is returned to its normal position across the groove E by means of a spring P, one end of which is secured to one of the side bars B, while the other end is secured to the trip device. A shoulder Q on each of the trip devices acts to prevent the shaft L from again traveling down the groove E when the rackbars are moved in the opposite direction,as will hereinafter appear. Consequently the ends of the shaft ride back in the groove D, and inasmuch as such groove is farther away from the printing mechanism than. the groove E the impression -roller is removed from the printing characters on its return to normal position. (Indicated in Fig. 2.) An inkingroll R is mounted in a housing S, secured to arms T, pivoted between the side bars G. One or both of these arms carry a stud U, which engages with the side bar G to prevent the inking-roll from further descending, a coiled spring V acting to normally hold the arms T in such a position that the studs U engage with the side bars G and also act to hold the inking-roll against the printing characters for inking them when the inking-roll R travels up the inclined groove E. As the inking-roll and also the side bars are moved into the groove D the inking-11,011 is moved away from the printing characters by reason of the pins U contacting with the arms G, so that on the return movement of the impression-roller F the inking-roll will remain out of contact from such printing characters until the impression-roller is about moved into printing position. i
We will now describe the mechanism for operating the printing characters which are inked by the inking-roll and which are also printed upon a paper strip, as will hereinafter appear.
Arranged substantially parallel to the track 0 is mounted an elcctrotype W, which is secured to the side plates. B in any suitable manner. This electrotype is provided with holes or openings X, X, and X. Two printing rolls or cylinders Y and Z are provided, which are mounted on shafts'3 and 4, respectively. These printingcylinders are adapted to carry any printing characters which may be desired. In the present instance they carry the names of stations, such as A, B, O, and D. Between each of these printing-cylinders is preferably mounted a shaft 5, upon which is carried printing-wheels 6, bearing the abbreviations of the months of the year, as also numbers from O to 9,
ing A. A gear 12, rigidly mounted on the shaft 11, engages with the gear 8, which forms a part ofthe months-printing wheel. The shaft 5 extends out through the casing to one side and carries a knurled head 13, by which allofthe month-printing characters are turned into printing position through the opening X in the electrotype. The shafts 10 and 11 each carry gears which mesh with the respective units and tens wheels for the day of the month and also project through the outside of the casing and carry knurled heads 16 and 17, By turning the knurled head 16 the units dating-wheel is operated so as to turn the proper units date into printing position, and by turning the knurled head 17 the tens dating-wheel is turned until the proper tens representing the proper tens figure is turned into printing position. Each of the shaftslO, 11, and 5 extends through each of the banks of mechanisms, so that the characters representing the months and the day of the months, respectively, may be all set simultaneously. Each month printing wheel, as also each of the units and tens printing wheels, is provided with ratchet-wheels, with which engage dogs 18, 19, and 20, respectively, which are held in position by springs 21 and 22. In the same manner the printingcylinders Y and Z are held in printing position by detents 23, which engage with ratchet or stop wheels 24 at one end of each of the wheels. The detents 23 are held in engagement With the respective ratchets 24 by springs 25, there being one spring for each pawl.
Referring again to the guide or groove D, constituting a track for the impression-roller, it will be observed that in one side of such groove is mounted a switch 26, one end of which normally closes the groove and is held in such position by means of a spring 27. As the impression-roller travels to the lower end of the groove D it causes the switch 20 to swing out of its path; but the instant it is passed into the inner end of the groove E the switch closes the passage D to prevent again backing into such groove, but permits the impression-roller, together with the inkingroller, to pass up along the groove E, where the inking-roll contacts with the printing characters on the respective printing-cylinders, as also on the dating-wheels, so that as the impression-roller presses a strip'of paper into contactwith said printingcharacters, in
a manner hereinafter appearing, it will receive the proper impression to constitute a ticket bearing any desirablecharacters or words. In the present instance the electrotype W (see Figs. 2 and 6?) bears the printing characters representing From, A569, Fare to, together with the amount of the fare, such amount varying in each bank of mechanisms according to the number of fares to be charged, and also any suitable words, such as A. B. C. R. R. 00., Issued subject to the companys by-laws, while between between the word to and the amount of the fare the letter B appears. Thus upon the paper roll or strip will appear the words From A to B, meaning that the ticket is good for travel from station A to station fB for a definite amount of fare, say one are.
WVe will now describe the manner in which the inking and printing rolls are operated 1 through their connection with the racks J J. By referring to Figs. 3 and 4 it will be observed that gears 29 and 29, both of which are fixed on the shaft 30, extending through the side plates, mesh with the racks Jand J, respectively. Upon this same shaft is also mounted a gear 31, which is formed with or otherwise secured to the gear 29. With the gear 31 meshes a toothed segment 32 of a hand-lever 33. Consequently as the handlever 33 is operated about its pivot 34 the racks J and J, meshing with the gears 29 and 29, respectively, are slid along in their guides K. Inasmuch as the side bars G are secured to the respective sliding racks J and J and are also rigidly connected with each other,
both side bars, as also the inkingand printing rolls, operate at the same time, and consequently since the side bars operate together the pressure throughout the length of the inking-roll, as also the impression-roll, is equal, so that all of the type is properly inked and the impressions are clear and even. Let
it be supposed that the rack-bar J is slid,
36, formed with or otherwise secured thereto.
will also rotate with the gear 35.
. one end of a roller-shaft 42, upon which is mounted a roller 43. (See Fig. 5.) The driven gear 41 also meshes with a driven gear 44 on the end of a shaft 45, which also carries a toothed roller 46. The roller 43 is preferably formed of rubber or other suitable elastic material, while the roller 46 is formed of metal bearing teeth which press tightly into contact with the rubber roll.
Referring now to the paper upon which the ticket is printed and also the mannerin which it is pressed upon the printing characters and is drawn from the machine, it will be ob served that between the plates B is pivotally mounted a spool 47, which carries a paperroll 48 thereon. One end of this paper-roll passes arounda roller 49 (see Fig.- 2) and between the inking-roll housing S and the impression-roller F and also out between the rolls 43 and 46, which constitute feed-rolls for drawing the paper strip through the machine and also for holding the paper strip, so that the ticket as it passes out through the openings 50 or 51 may be detached from the remainder of the strip and handed to a passenger. By this organization it will be seen that as the inking-roll travels over the printing characters the impression roll F will travel beneath the paper strip M and press such strip up into engagement with such printing characters as the roll travels up the groove E, so that with our invention we have a roller for inking the type and also an impression-cylinder for pressing the paper strip into engagement with the printing characters during one single operation, and inasmuch as the impression-roll, together with the inking-roll, passes evenly on the type and paper, respectively, a clear impression is made. Thus with our invention the mechanism is such that a perfectly-clear impression ismade.
T We will now refer to the mechanism forindicating that a fare has been paid and also the mechanism for indicating to the conductor and passengers the number of fares which have been paid. It will be observed that upon the rack-bar J is mounted a stud or pin 52, which normally stands in the path of a pivoted detent 53, pivoted upon a crank-arm 54, keyed or otherwise secured to a shaft 55, mounted in bearings in the guideways K, one at each side of each bank of operating mecha bell clapper or striker 56. (See Fig. A
anism. On the opposite side of the machine and also secured to said shaft 55 is mounted pin 57 is carried by the crank-arm ,54 and acts 7 as a stop for the detent 53 to prevent it from swinging about its pivot in one direction, yet
rection. A spring 58, one end of which is secured to the crank-arm, while its other end is secured to the detent, acts to normally" hold the detent against the pin 57.
As the handlever 33 is operated and the rack-bar is slid along in its guides the pin 52 comes in contact with the detent 53, and in one direction the detent yields to permit the pin to pass without elevating the crank-arm 54, while in the opposite direction, or when the hand-lever is thrown down from the position indicated in IIO permitting it to freely turn in the opposite di Fig. 1, the pin 52 operates to raise the detent 53 and also the crank-arm 54. This partially rotates the shaft 55, thereby operating the acts to normally hold the crank-arm'54, as
also the bell-clapper or striker 56, in-engagethe guides K, one. on one side of one bank and one on the other side of the same bank. It will be understood, however, that but one hell is employed and also one bell-striker, in-
asmuch as the shaft 55'extends across all of the banks of mechanisms. Thus no matter which bank may be operated the shaft will be partially rotated and the single bell-striker will be brought into engagement with the bell to indicate that a ticket has been registered by registering mechanism hereinafter described.
In the front of each bank of mechanisms is pivotally mounted an indicator (it upon a bracket 65. To each indicator is connected one end ,of a spring 66, while the other end is secured to one of the side plates 13. This spring normally holds the indicator in such a position that the numerals thereon, as indicated by Figs. 1 and 2, &c., are normally out of line with sight-openings 67 in the casing A. When, however, the machine is 0perated, the indicators are thrown to such a position that the numeral on the indicator of the bank of mechanism which has been operated will appear through the sight-opening in front of such bank, while the remaining numerals on the other indicators will be out of view. Consequently if the distance to be traveled costs two fares, then the bank containing the two-fare indicator will be operated in front of the sight-opening, so that the dicator.
numeral 2 will appear therein. This is accomplished by means of a lever 68, one end of which is pivoted to the side of its bank, as indicated at 69, while the other end engages with an arm 70, projecting from the in- As the rack-bar J is thrown in the direction to ring the bell the pin 52 thereon will engage the lever 68 to cause the lever to throw the indicator into indicating position. The range of vertical movement of the rack J is sufficient to cause the pin 52 to engage with the lever 68 just before the upward movement of the said rack-bar ceases and to move the said lever a sufficient distance to operate the indicator 64. When this takes place, a catch 71, fixedly mounted upon a shaft 72, immediately engages with the arm 70 of the indicator to hold such indicator in indicating position, such catch being operated through the action of a spring 73, which is coiled about the shaft 72 and has one end secured to one of the sides, while the other end is secured to the shaft in a manner well known. As soon as the pin 52 has operated upon the detent 53 to rock the shaft 55, and thereby ring the bell, a rod or bar 74, one end of which connects with the arm 56', secured to the shaft 55, while its other end is secured to a crank 75, carried by the shaft 72, operates to release the catch 71 from engagement with the arm 70, projecting from the indicator. The instant this takes place, the spring 66 throws the indicator out of indicating position, and such indicator will remain out of indicating position until the pin 52 again acts upon the lever 68, as above described.
The shaft 55 extends through each bank of mechanisms, so that as the bell is struck at the same time the sl1aft'55 is partially rocked through the action of the bars 74: on the respective cranks 7 5--that is, in the bank which is operated-the bar 7 i will act upon its crank to cause the indicator last operated into view to be released, so that its number will be out of View through its sight-opening. Consequently all of the sight-openings will have no number appearing therein. By continuing the movement of the operating-lever 33in the being indicated through the sight-opening for such bank.
Referring now to the registering mechanism for indicating the number of fares which have been paid by any bank of mechanisms, it will be observed that to the shaft 34, to which the operating-lever 33 is secured, is also secured a crank-arm 78, which is adapted to engage with a bifurcated arm 79, secured to an ordinary cyclometer-shaft, as indicated at 80. The cyclometer is mounted upon a bracket 81, screwed or otherwise secured to the side plates 13, as shown at 82. As the operating leveris thrown in one direction the bifurcated arm 79 is also thrown in one direction, while on the return movement it is thrown in the opposite direction. Consequently the cyclometer-shaft is rocked back and forth, so
that the cyclometer is operated in a manner well known.
From the above description it will be understood that with our invention the printing characters are inked by the inking-roll, while the impression roll or cylinder presses a strip of paper upon them, thereby impressing upon the strip of paper the characters desired, while at the same time the number of fares or the number of fare-distancesthat is, the
distance a passenger can ride for one or more faresis indicated to a purchaser, as also to the conductor. By the same operation the ticket is issued from the machine and the number of any given fares is being registered. The ticket may be ren oved from the bodyof the web when issued by being torn off or otherwise separated by hand.
We will now refer to the means for setting the printingrolls containing. the stations thereon, so that upon the printed strip or ticket the station from which a passenger is going and also the station to which a passenger is going may be printed. On the upper end of the casing is arranged a series of letters 83 and also a series of letters 84. The series of letters 83 read in one direction, while the series of letters 84: read in the opposite direction. Let it be supposed that the passenger enters the car at station A and Wishes to travel to station 0. As the conductor comes along to such passenger his destination is asked,and upon beinginformed the conductor at once takes hold of a knurled head 85 at one side of the machine and also a knurled head 86 at the opposite side of the machine. By turning these respective knurled heads the shafts holding the printing-rolls carrying the station characters may be rotated to any desired position, so as to bring into printing position any station thereon. This position is indicated by pointers S7 and 88, respectively, which are adapted to point to the stations, inasmuch as the shafts towhich said pointers are attached carry at their inner ends small bevel-wheels S9 and 90, respectively, which'mesh with bevel-Wheels 91 and 92 on the station-printing-roll shafts. Thus when a passenger desires to travel from A to O the pointer 88 will be turned to such a position that it indicates station A. This will bring station A into printing position on the print, ing-roll Z,while at the same time the indicator 87 is turned to such a position that it points to station 0 and at the same time bringing the station 0 into printing position on the station-printing Wheel Y.
Thus with our machine we provide for printing the stations from and to which a passenger is going, as also the fare or number of fares upon a ticket-that is,'if a passenger is going a certain distance for which one fare is charged, then the one-fare bank is operated,
while if the passenger is goinga distance requiring two fares, then the two-fare bank is operated. At the same time each bank that is operated registers the number of tickets issued, so that at the end of any given time the number of one-fare tickets and also the number of two-fare tickets may be ascertained. Of course there are as many banks of mechanism as there are classes of fares, all operating in the same manner as the two here described.
In some instances it may be found desirable to fixedly mount these machines in a street-car or other suitable place, wherever the machine is desired for use. In order that the machine may be operated at a distance from it, we provide as many tubes as there are banks of issuing-machines, either one within the other, as shown in Fig. 10, or side by side, as shown in Fig. 12, and suspend them from the-side or top of a street-car by hangers 93, there being as many of such hangers as desired. The inner tube or pipe 94 has connected therewith at one end a double crank 95, to the respective outer ends ofwhich are attached crank-rods 96 and 97. These crankrods are also attached to the lever 98, secured to the segment 99, which is like the segment 32, the handle 75 being removed. The inner tube 9% also has ahandle 100 projecting therefrom and preferably bears the numeral 1 thereon. By taking hold ofthis handle and like the handle 100, as indicated at l01,there being three in this instance and numbered,
respectively, 2, 3, and 4t. In order that the handles 101 may engage with the proper tubes, each tube but the inner one is slotted circumferentially, so that the handles may project through such slots (indicated at 102) and engage their respective tubes-that is, the handle bearing the numeral 1 projects through a slot 102 in each of the pipes or tubes but the inner one and is secured to such inner one, While the handle bearing the numeral 2 projects through a similar slot in each of the tubes but the second tube and is secured to such second pipe. In the same way each handie is secured to its respective pipe.
From Fig. 12 it will be seen that each of the tubes'alsohave operating-handles and levers like the tubes shown in Fig. 10, but such handles have no connection with any tube or rod but the one to which it is connected. WVhen the tubes are not mounted one within the other, the rods may be employed, so that rods are the full equivalent of tubes when one is not placed one within the other.
Where several banks of mechanisms are employed, eachof which is adapted to issue a ticket of different denomination, we may employ different-colored strips of paper for such different denominations. For instance, if a one-unit-fare bank is being used a white ticket-strip may be used, so that a white ticket will be issued from the one-unit-fare bank, while from the two-unit-fare bank another colored strip of paper may be employed, such as pink, While in the three-unit-fare bank a green strip may be used, and so on for as many banks as may be employed. The conductor will at once know by the colorof the ticket the denomination of such ticket. This will assist him in preventing making any mistakes; Thus with our improved organization we may also combine a color system of tickets.
Having thus fully described our invention, what we claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is-
