This three-way clutch allows separate indexing operations of two rolls of paper with a single indexing motor. Additionally, both rolls can be driven simultaneously, or a wide paper sheet can be fed past the paper paths of both rolls. An example of an application of this paper-feeding technique is a retail point of sale terminal employing a receipt tape, a journal tape, and a wide roll or fanfold paper printing capability.
