Abstract

In order to contain a long endless tape in a small cartridge without tape tangle, it is desirable for the tape to keep itself regularly waved in the cartridge when being forced thereinto. This is accomplished by a tape feed mechanism, controlling the tape feed direction into the cartridge, that is continuously swung in a predetermined angle.
