Splicer for Continuous Forms or Films

Continuous forms of similar but a variety of widths can be spliced accurately and quickly, by a device enabling the operator to use both hands when applying splicing tape.

This portable splicer has a bed 1 adjacent the rear edge of which are longitudinally spaced side guides 2,3,4,5. Between guides 2,3 and 4,5 are hinged arms 6,7, respectively. Pairs of pins 8, which project downwardly from the underside of each arm, are adapted to enter die holes 9 in the bed. Longitudinal spacing of these pins and holes is equal to that of the pin feed holes 10 in the marginal strips 11,12 of the continuous forms 13,14 that are to be spliced.

The operator places the trailing end of form 13 on bed 1 with one edge against the guides 2,3. Then form 13 is shifted forward so that, as arm 6 is rocked forward and down, pins 8 enter holes 10,9 and hold the form in place. Now the leading end of form 14 is placed on bed 1 with its one edge against guides 4,5; whereupon arm 7 is rocked forward in similar manner to hold the form in place with its leading edge abutting the trailing edge of form 13. While the forms 13,14 are thus held a accurately in abutting alignment by the weighted arms 6,7, the operator, using both hands, applies pressure-sensitive adhesive tape 15 to secure the forms along their abutting edges.
