Abstract

A supply roll of paper 10 is mounted by spindle 11. One end of spindle 11 is received in an open slot 12 in side plate 13 while the other end is supported by side plate 14. The latter 14 is pivoted to frame member 16 at pivot point 17. Plates 13 and 14 and member 16 are mounted from table 18 having U-shaped channels 19 along its opposite sides. Channels 19 form rails and table 18 is supported for longitudinal sliding movement by rollers 20. To replace a roll of paper, table 18 is pulled from the interior of the machine and spindle 11 is pivoted to a vertical position. The paper is pulled from the supply roll of paper 10 by a pair of intermittently rotated spring pressed driving rolls 21 and 22. Paper 10 is guided over and around the roll by guide rolls 23 and 24.

The latter 14 is pivoted to frame member 16 at pivot point 17. Plates 13 and 14 and member 16 are mounted from table 18 having U-shaped channels 19 along its opposite sides. Channels 19 form rails and table 18 is supported for longitudinal sliding movement by rollers 20. To replace a roll of paper, table 18 is pulled from the interior of the machine and spindle 11 is pivoted to a vertical position. The paper is pulled from the supply roll of paper 10 by a pair of intermittently rotated spring pressed driving rolls 21 and 22. Paper 10 is guided over and around the roll by guide rolls 23 and 24. The actuator of switch 26 engages paper 10 at guide roll 23 to provide a control signal indicating an out-of-paper condition.
