Ribbon Printer, Unit Proof Inscriber

Printing of a control tape in an inscriber is effected by using Magnetic Ink Character Recognition ribbon 10 after it passes through inscriber serial print mechanism 12. Ribbon 10 is used as a mask and passes light from source 14 through the clear, imprinted portions onto light-sensitive control tape 16.

In another arrangement, the used MICR ribbon 10 is employed as an embossed character bearing negative. Control tape 18 is impacted to transfer the remaining ink from ribbon 10 by hammer 20 and platen 22.

Such action produces a grey to black background surrounding clear characters.
