Abstract

A web of ticket stock 1 is fed between guide plates 2 and 3 by continuously rotating feed roll 5. The latter acts on 1 in conjunction with selectively operable pinch roll 4. Web 1 is prepunched so that it has a series of holes. These are equally spaced from one another longitudinally of web 1 by a distance equal to one ticket length.

Ticket Dispenser

A web of ticket stock 1 is fed between guide plates 2 and 3 by continuously rotating feed roll 5. The latter acts on 1 in conjunction with selectively operable pinch roll 4. Web 1 is prepunched so that it has a series of holes. These are equally spaced from one another longitudinally of web 1 by a distance equal to one ticket length.

Between ticket issuing cycles, solenoid 8 is unenergized so that tension spring 11 holds the ends of arm 9, pivotable at 10, and arm 12, pivotable at 13, against stop 18. This causes 4 to be suspended in a nonfeeding position and causes registration pin 16 to be held in a web hole. The finger 14 of switch 15 also resides in a web hole causing 15 to be open.

To issue a ticket, switch 6 is momentarily closed to energize 8, rocking 9 in a clockwise direction and 12 in a counterclockwise direction. This draws 16 out of the web path and positions 4 to initiate web feeding. Initial feeding closes 15 to maintain 8 in its energized condition. When 1 moves one ticket length, 14 drops into the next hole. Such action breaks the circuit of 8 and causes 11 to lift 4 out of contact with 1 and to insert 16 into a web hole to register 1. Actuation of 6 also energizes clutch control 19. This engages clutch 20 for a sufficient time to permit motor 21 to drive cam 22 one clockwise revolution. The speed of 21 is synchronized with the speed of 5 such that the rise on 22 drives shear blade 17 downwardly to sever a ticket just after 16 eng...
