Long Use of Journal Paper

      Summary - The used journal papers for Point of Sales (POS)
terminal are kept in the custody because of a tax system.  Some large
stores use more than 10,000 rolls for one year.  So, this suggestion
is that not only the surface of journal paper but also the back is
used.  It will save money and space.

      Current (conventional) model - On the mechanism of current
model, a journal paper is rolled with the used out (Fig. 1).  After
the paper is rolled to the last, it is not used again.  Because it is
rolled with the blank in and is too loose to be printed.

      Purpose - To print the double sides of journal paper, it takes
the paper at only half they have ever used.  That is, it is possible
to reduce the cost of paper and the space for stock.  And it will
contribute to saving natural resources, having been advocated in all
the world now.

      Architecture - The journal reel is turned in the reverse
direction.  As a result, the paper is rolled with a blank out, and
then it is possible to be used again.

      For this purpose, the new mechanism needs a gear to reverse the
reel and a stopper to roll the journal tightly, in addition to the
old one (Fig. 2).
