Card Punch

The drawing shows an improved card punch. A keyboard 2 is supported by a table 3. The mechanical components of the punch mechanism are enclosed in a one-piece molded plastic unit 4 and an acoustic cover 5. The card transport area is enclosed by a clear plastic cover 6.

A drawer 7 holds the logic and storage circuits and the power supply for the punch, and can be pulled out for servicing the logic and storage circuits. An outside panel is removable for servicing the power supplies. The on-off switch 8 is located on the side of the drawer section where it is readily accessible to the operator. A second drawer 9 is provided for use by the operator. A box 10 for chips removed from the cards by punching and a drawer 11 for operating manuals, are readily accessible under the top of table 3.
