Abstract

Disclosed is an Embossed Magnetic Card Issuer which can pick out a card easily, decreasing the resistance of a pile of embossments. The card stock is not a piling-up type but a standing type, and the card is inclined toward the pick-roller side to shift a pile of embossment. The stocked cards are pushed and received at one side, which is away from the embossments, and a pick-roller also pushes the same side to decrease the resistance of embossments.

Embossed Magnetic Card Issuer

      Disclosed is an Embossed Magnetic Card Issuer which can
pick out a card easily, decreasing the resistance of a pile of
embossments.  The card stock is not a piling-up type but a standing
type, and the card is inclined toward the pick-roller side to shift a
pile of embossment.  The stocked cards are pushed and received at one
side, which is away from the embossments, and a pick-roller also
pushes the same side to decrease the resistance of embossments.

      The Figure shows an example of this mechanism.  The pressure
plate (1) is picked up from the stocker (2) and cards are set into
the stocker (2).  The cards are inclined at an angle of 25 - 30
degrees toward the pick roller (3) side.  The plate-R (4), shown in
View-A, receives the main pressure of cards.  The pressure plate (1)
and pick roller (3) push the same side, which is away from
embossments.  The pick roller (3), shown in View-B, pushes the lower
part of the card and  picks it up to the upper side.  Then, the
outside rollers pull out the  card easily.

      This mechanism is also applicable in a piling-up type stocker,
though the number of stocked cards decreases in comparison with a
standing type because the card-weight grows heavy.
