Ticketing Device

In the issuing of transportation by reservation clerks, the individual tickets must be placed in a printer where the necessary data is entered. To facilitate the handling of the ticket, an attachment is provided in the form of a feed table. This has a plate 10 slidably mounted in a pair of brackets 11 secured to the frame of the printer.

The ticket is dropped onto plate 10 between handle 12 and a pair of guide fingers 14. The table is then depressed against the action of springs 15, one in each bracket 11, moving the ticket along guide 16 to a bite between pressure roll 17 and platen 18. From there the ticket is wrapped about platen 18 under a ledger or daily sheet 20 shown in dot and dash lines.

Upon release of handle 12, springs 15 restore the table to normal position. This device forms a quick and accurate method for positioning the ticket on platen 18 of the printer.
