Control Mechanism For Record Marking Machine

The restore mechanism is for a high-speed record marking machine. The mechanism is controllable by a low energy electric pulse.

Control arm 1 actuates movable member 2 to a restored position adjacent print magnet 3 in which member 2 can be held and subsequently released by a pulse. Printing on record 4 occurs by forcing record 4 and ribbon 5 into selected type carrier 6 by the action of spring 2'.

Member 2 is selectively actuated by holding magnet 7 in conjunction with cam 8, control element 9 and wedge member 10. Wedge 10 is mounted for slidable movement between arm 1 and element 9.

The operation of magnet 7 causes control element 11 to be held in the position shown. Upon further rotation of cam 8, element 11 is held from the cam following position. It causes wedge 10 to be interposed between arm 1 and element 9. The motion of cam 8 is so transmitted to arm 1 achieving a fully restored condition when the high point of cam 8 is adjacent member 9.

If magnet 7 is not operated, element 11 acts as a cam follower. Arm 1 is not moved to the restored position, since the amount that element 9 is moved downwardly is balanced by the amount that wedge 10 is moved to the left.
