In Ge .inne 3, its@ 29 Giaims.

relates to automatic record controlled machines and more particularly to a machine of a novel type which is under the joint control of index marks associated to records and of index marks associated to data carriers and wherein transferring transferring the data carriers, said data being means are provided `for represented on said data preferably transferred upon said records themselves to which said index marks are associated.

The records may be provided as record cards or sheets or sections of a continuous record sheet and the index marks of said records may for instance comprise perforations arranged according to any desired system such as Athe single hole or hole combination system.

Data carriers of various in record controlled forms have been used machines and accordingly the transferring means must be adapted to said data carriers. If the data are carried on a record card and are represented by periorations on said card, the transferring mechanism must include analyzing means and thereby so the perforated record course. manhines of theV been suggested where printing means controlled that the data may be analyzed from cardand printed. 0f type referred to have also in a punching mechanism takes the place of the printing mechanism so that the data may be entered by perforations upon the data receiving records. If the data carrier takes the form of an address plate a simple printing mechanism including a printing platen will serve as transferring mechanism to print the data such as the name said address plates.

and address embossed upon While transferring of said data can be eected upon any desired record, particular advantages lresult from transferring of said data upon the sainel records which c ontrol the machine jointly with ithe data carriers, as will still be described.

The index marks may be mediately or immediately associated to said data carriers and may Vcomprise perforations arranged according to any like provided on the address plates.

One of the main objects of the present invention is now to providea machine adapted for selective operation in in whichthe records are fed through the data carriers are also fed ways, machine and the through the machine.

any one of two. different There must be at least for each record a data carrier but the number of records may be less and usually is less than the number of data carriers with identical designations, lllty ci' records of present. The records though, with the present invention a plueach designation may be and data carriers must be supplied in raising or falling sequence of their designations or numb ers represented by the .in-

(CE. 10h-5%) vso that accordingly each data carrier is used only. data carriers through.`

once in each run oi ali the machine.

@parution 11A- There may be instances where a plurality of records having the same index mark designations follow each other and where it is desired to transfer the data from a single data carrier upon control of the machine by each of said consecutive identical records so that the same data are repeatedly entered. in this instance the machine can be adjusted to Operation Il.

In practice itis always known if in a series 0i records each designation occurs only singly or several times and the machine may be adjusted accordingly either to Operation il 'or Operation E. 'iliis possibility of adjustment is most desirable since on the one hand it permits with the Operation lili as compared to I a multiple data entering and on the other hand with the Operation ei a higher operating speed as corn` said index marks said comparing means cause.

actuation of the transferring mechanism and actuation of the record feeding means.

Now, according to the invention further means are provided for selectively changing the control of the comparing means upon the data carrier feeding means to render upon agreement of said index marks said data carrier feeding means inactive or to cause actuation of the same and in this way selective adjustment of the machine to "Operation I or Operation II is obtained.

-A,further object of the invention is to provide a machine of the type' referred to wherein the data transferred by said transferring mechanism are printed upon the entry receiving records.

Another object is to provide a machine of the ,type referred to wherein the data carriers are represented by printing devices of any desired type and more particularly by address plates having the name and address embossed thereon.

A further object of the invention is to cause said transferring mechanism to transfer the data upon the controlling records themselves particulai-1y if the data carriers assume the form of address plates.

The advantages of the invention are particularly obvious if the same is applied to an auto'- matic addressing machine for perforated records. However, in its broad aspects the invention is by no means limited to that application but broadly provides a selective change of the control of comparing means for index marks upon the feeding means for records of different classes.

Broadly, it may therefore be said that one of the most important objects of the invention is to provide in an automatic machine being under the Joint control of index marks on records of one class and of index marks of records 4of another class means for comparing the index marks of a. record of the one class with the index marks of a record of the `other class and to control the feeding means depending upon the result of said comparison, wherein selective means are provided to obtain either Operation I or Operation II. Upon disagreement of said index marks said feeding means for .the records of the one class remain inactive and actuation of the feeding means for the records of the other class is caused while upon agreement of said index marks said comparing means cause actuation of the feeding means for the records of the one class.

In order to obtain the selection of the manner of f operation, means are provided for selectively changing the control of the comparing means upon the feeding means for the records of the other class, to render upon agreement of said index marks said feeding means for the records of the other class 'inactive or to cause actuation of the same to feed the subsequent record of the other class.

A further object of the invention is to provide a machine of the aforesaid type wherein the records having index marks associated thereto com# prise perforated records.

A further object is to provide in a machine of the type referred to means for taking a reading from said records, said means being also under the control of said comparing means.

Still a further object is to provide in a machine of the type referred to a. printing mechanism being under the control of said comparing means.

--A further important object of the invention is to provide an automatic addressing machine permitting selective operation as indicated and wherein the address plates are preferably printed upon the same perforated records controlling the machine jointly with the index marks moeiated to said address plates. While the provision of a machine of the character indicated above which permits selective operation in any one of two diiferent manners, is one of the most-important objects of the invention, it is also a very important object of the invention to provide an automatic addressing 4machine which permits, if so desired, only the Operation II as indicated above, whereas the Operation I per se forms the subject matter of my copending application Serial No..524,896, flied March 24th, 1931, of which the present case isan improvement.

Accordingly, another object of the invention is to actuate upon agreement of said record perforation's with said index marks only the record feeding means while upon disagreement the record feeding means remainv inactive and the address plate feeding means are actuated.

Further objects of the invention arecommon toall aforesaid types of machines.

Accordingly, a. further object of the invention is to provide machines of the type referred to wherein a perforated record and an address plate are simultaneously analyzed by' the comparing means While both the address plate and the record are in printing position.

A further object is to provide comparing means including electricalanalyzers for the perforated records and' mechanical analyzers for the address plates.

A further object is to provide machines of the type referred to which respond to perforations and index marks provided according to the combinational system.

A further object is to provide machines of the type referred to adapted to operate with a continuous record sheet having designation perforations spaced apart along said sheet and still a further object is to provide analyzer means adapted to detect guide holes of said sheet, one hole being coordinated to each designation perforation and controlling the operation of the feeding means as well as the initiation of the comparing operation. I

A further object is to provide the designation perforation analyzer means of the comprising mechanism and the guide hole analyzer adjustable relatively to printing position so that the address may be printed within a predetermined range at any'desired distance from the designa- .tion perforation.

,same may be addressed with the machine ac- 4cording to the present invention even if there f are a plurality of statements present having the 'same designation. The statements are provided `with designation perforations and are fed through the machine one by one in raising or I falling' order; for each designation must be an address. plate present, but it is not necessary that for each address plate there must be a statement with the corresponding designation perforation. If the address plates are fed through the machine in the same order as the statements, the latter will be properly and automatically addressed by the machine as will still be described herein more in detail.

The, application of the addressing system in connection with the perforated record system affords many and considerable advantages over the prior art and one instance is more fully set forth in my co-pending application Serial No.

I 550,939-i1ed July 15th,4 1931 relating t0 a novel method of preparing statements and the like. The machine according to the present invention is particularly adaptedrto the requirements of said novel method but it will be clearly understood that a machine as described and claimed herein is by no means restricted to the application in said novel method but may just as well be applied in various other ways; of course, said novel method may also be carried out with various other means or machines notwithstanding the f act that the present printing machine is highly preferable for said purpose.

Further objects and advantages of the invention will be seen from the following specification and claims.

. AS- far as in the specification and claims referworm I6 through ence is made to address plates it will be understood that this term shall include any type of equivalent printing instruments serving the same addressing machine according to the invention.

Figs. 2a and 2bv represent a section through the machine shown in Figs. la and 1b. Figs. 1a, 1b and Figs'. 2a, 2b respectively belong together.

Fig. 3 is a section on line 3l-3 of Fig. 1b and shows the drive mechanism of the machine.

Fig. 4 shows in an enlarged scale the analyzing device for the index marks of the address plates, said marks being provided in the form of hole combinations.

Fig. 5 represents the scheme according to which the numerals in the sheets to be addressed and in the address plates are represented by different hole combinations.

Fig. 6 shows the circuit diagram of the machine.

Address plates and record sheets to be The address plates (Figs. 1a, 1b, 2a, 2b) are fed from the magazine I9 through the machine to the receptacle I2. Each plate is provided with a perforation representing the plate number and being arranged in accordance with addressed ythe key shown in Fig. 5. This perforation may of course be replaced by tabs or maybe prol vided upon a card inserted in a frame carrying the address plate. The record sheets to be ad-l dressed may be in the form of cards, lists and so on and are perforated in accordancel with the same key as the sheets; each record column comprises four hole positions within which a numeral may be represented by a single or combinational holes. The lists are also provided with a standard point hole being provided at the level of the lowermost hole position of a hole combination and serving as standard point with relation to the hole combination.

Driving mechanisms of the addressing machine The machine is driven by the motor I5 (Fig. 3) through the worm |6. The plates |I are fed by a slide |-8 (Figs. 2b, 3) from the right to the left through the machine. The slide I8 is actuated by means Aof parts 59, 62, 6| `by a lever 51 being under the influence of a spring 58; said lever is pivotally mounted at 56 and is rocked about its pivot under the control Vof a cam disk 54 upon which the roller 55 rides. The cam disk 54 is driven by means of gears 52, 53 and the one-revolution clutch 49, 50 provided upon the shafts 48, 60, said one-revolution clutch being controllable by magnet 63 by means of a pin 5| and lever 64 coacting with a'spring 65. The shaft of the disk 54 carries a cam |34 closing in the home position of said disk a contact |34. 'I'he shaft 48 is driven by worm I6 through wormgear 41. The one-revolution clutch 31,38 (Fig; 2b) for the printing mechanism is controlled by means of parts 45, 39, 40 by the magnet 4|. The shaft 36 of the clutch member` 31 is driven by the wormgear 35. The lever 40 has a downwardly extending member 65 which, as will still be described, is adapted to control the clutch member 64 of the one-revolution clutch 49,

- 65 and 64. Upon the shaft 58 for the plate feeding mechanism. In the gent and rear wall of the casing is a shaft |96 ounted adapted to be adjusted into any one of two shift positions; the shaft is provided with a spring actuated pin |95, engaging in the one shift position of the shaft between the arms |96 is fastened on the Aoutside of the machine (Fig. lb) a handle |92. If the parts are in the position shown in Figs. 1b and 2b the arm 65 will freely move upon energization of the magnet 4I and no influence upon the arm 64 will be effected. The handle |92 'must be adjusted in this position if the mechanism shall be adapted to print the same address upon a number of subsequent lists having identical perforations. However, if the machine shall be shifted to the other manner of operation (if each identification perforation occurs only once in the series cf record sheets) the ylever |92 must ybe turned for one fourth revolution in clockwise direction so that the pin |95 will move between the arms G4 and 65. Accordingly, upon each energization of magnet 4I, also the onerevolution clutch 49, 59 for the plate feeding mechanism will be released by means of pin |95 which will be moved to the right by arm 65 so that simultaneously with or after each printing operation respectively also the next record sheet will be immediately advanced.

The printing cushion I8' is fast on the plate I9 (Figs. la, 2a) which is connected byl means of parts 28, 2|, 22 to the arm 23 which is integral with sleeve 25 and arm 26, the roller 21 of which is riding under the the cam disk 29; the cam disk can be driven over shaft 3|! and bevel gears 3|, 32 and shaft 33 by means of the one-revolution clutch 31, 38 to perform one printing cycle. Upon the shaft 33 are fast two cams |3I' and r|32; after completion of the printing operation the first cam closes temporarily the contact |3| and the last mentioned cam keeps the contact |32 closed if the machine is in home position. The sleeve 25 is pivotally mounted upon the shaft 24 which is fastened to the bracket 25". The address plates are advanced in the channel I1 (see Fig. 2b) and by means of a ribbon I9 (Fig. 2a) they are printed upon the lower side of the'record sheet which is fed between the printing cushion I8 and the ribbon I9.

The record sheets are inserted by means of hand wheels 12 and 13' and are fed by rollers 10 and 1| (the first ones operating as drive rollers) over the table |98 of the addressing machine thereby closing the contact |31 (Fig. 6) which is under the control of a lever |36. The feed of the sheet is effected by means of a clutch 14, 15 (Figs. lb, 3); said clutch is driven by a wheel 13 through worm I6 and is operatively connected through gears 16 and 11 with the feed rollers 10. The clutch is under the control of the magnet 18 controlling the clutch mechanism 19-83 which on its part closes upon energization of magnet 18a contact 84. Upon energization of mag-net |38 a frame |28, pivotally mounted at |29, will be rocked; the ngers |26', |21' of said frame are adapted to close the contacts |26 and |21 under the control of the spindle I6. f

Comparing mechanism for record sheet perforatz'orts and address plate perforations .the main switch to ing windings of an electromagnet so that upon agreement said windings will be compensated and no controlling eiiect will be caused thereby while in the other instance a controlling operation will be effected. The respective magnets which are indicated in Fig. 3 at 20, control the plate |32 which is pivotally mounted at |2| and which normally keeps the contact |24 closed under the influence of a spring |23; upon energization of one or a plurality of the magnets |20, however, the contact |25 will be closed.

The analysis ofthe record sheet perfbrations, is eilected by means of the analyzing brushes 90 (Figs. la and 1b) for each record column there are four brushes provided in a vertical row. The standard point hole of each list is analyzed by the brush 95. The brushes 90, 95 cooperate with a contact plate 94 and are fastened on an insulating block 9| being adjustable along the adjusting bar 93 by means of the set screw 92.

The analyzing mechanism for the address plate perforations is shown more in detail in Fig. 4, illustrating the arrangement for one record column. The pins |0| for the analysis of the address plate perforations are slidable in a plate |00 and are guided by the inner ends of levers |02 which are pivotally mounted at |03 and which are under the inuence of springs ||2. The levers |02 are held by means of springs |06 and a frame |04 in their lower position through a cross bar |05 and are only released for analysis if due to the energization of magnet |09 the core and accordingly, also the pin and the frame |04 are raised, and at the end of said movement the contact |35 will be closed. On each position on which there is a perforation in the address plate the contact |01 coordinated to the respective hole position will be closed.

4 Circuit diagram 'I'he current source |30 may be connected by the main lines |39 and |40 to which the motor |5 is directly connected. From the contact |31 leads over stop contact |4| a. line |42 terminating in contact |21 which again -1ine |43 to the middle plate spring of the shiftable contact |24, |25. From the right side of the contact |24 aline |44 leads to the clutch magnet (for the printing mechanism)l which is connected to the main line |40. The left side of feeding) which in turn is also connected to the line |40.

The analyzing and comparing mechanism is inserted into the current circuit as will now be described: As will be seen from the circuit diagram, each magnet |20 comprises two windings. In the circuit of the one winding of each magnet lies the contact of the coordinated brush 90 with the contact plate 94 while the circuit of the other winding is controlled by the contact |01 (see also Fig. 4). The plate 94 is connected by a line |48 with line 42 and the brushes 90 are connected by lines |49 with the one ends of their coordinated windings. The terminals of said windings are connected by common lines |50, both upper lines |50 leading to a common line |5| and both lower lines |50 Lleading to a common line |52. The lines |5| and |52 are connected to a common line |53 leading to the contact |26 which in turn is connectedover line |54 with the lower main line |40. The address plate controlled magnet windings of both upper sets is connected byA of magnets are connected by lines |56 and |51 directly to the upper line |42 while the corresponding entries of both lower` sets are over line |58 in connection with line 42. The terminals of said windings in which the contacts |01 are arranged are connected as shown in Fig. 6 by common lines to the lines |5| and |52 which are connected to the line 53. It will be seen that from the positive pole (line |42), over line |48, contact plate 94 and brushes 90 the list perforation controlled magnet windings are connected over line |53, contact |26 and line |54 with the negative pole (line |40) of the current source; on the other hand, the address plate perforation controlled windingsl of the magnets |20 are connected with their entries by lines |56, |51 and |58 to the positive pole (|42) while their terminal lines in which the contacts 01 'are arranged are connected with line |53 leading in the above described way to the negative side (|40) of `the current source. Accordingly, the comparing magnets |20 are controlled by the sheet perforations as well as by the perforations of the address plate in such a way that these perforations control closure of the contacts 90, 94 and |01 respectively; if these contacts are closed, no current circuit completion of the current circuit is controlled by contact |26 arranged in the common back line of all magnets; it is only if the circuits of the magnets have been prepared by the perforations of the list as well as by the perforatons of the address plate that by closure of contact |26 the comparing circuit may be finally completed so that the windings energized.

To the line |42 is the magnet |30 connected which in turn is connected by a line |62 over contact |35 with the line |40 so that the magnet |30 will be energized if due to the energization of the solenoid |09 the contact 35 is closed.

For the control of the paper feed, the brush 95 cooperating with the contact plate 94, is connected by line |63 with the relay |64 which in turn is connected over line |65 to line I 40.

The armature |66 of relay |64 establishes in the deenergized state of the relay a connection between the line |65 and the line |61 leading to the contact 84; however, if the relay |64 is energized its armature closes the contact |60 thereby connecting the line |69 with the line |10 leading to the contact |34. From the contact |34 leads a line |1| to the contact |32 and from said contact leads a line |12 tothe solenoid |09 which is connected to the negative side |40 of the current source. From the line 69 branches a1 line |13 to the clutch magnet 10 for the record sheet feed, saidmagnet being connected to a line |14 leading over the start key controlled contact |15 to the negative line |40. To the line 14 is connected on the one hand the contact 84 and on the other Operation of the machine Now at first the machine is shifted of the magnets |20 may beis yet established since the x -feed will now be maintained the sheet will be advanced by the feed rollers 10 |63, relay |64 and .also the contacts |34 aooaoaa the position shown in the drawings and the electrical connections as shown in the circuit diagram are established. The address plates are inserted in the magazine I (Fig. 1b) with their relief side upwardly directed, the plate with the lowest account number lying lowermost while the plates with numbers increasing in current numerical order are following. The operator feeds the unprinted leading end -of the continuous record sheet between the rollers 10 and 1| by means of the previously described handwheels in such a way that the sheet lies with its printed side upon the table of the machine. The record sheet is inserted with the end having the lowest account number so that the lists with raising account numbers will follow. If addressing is to be effected in the reverse order, of course, also all. address plates must be inserted in the machine in reverse order. if the record sheet is tightly iensioned upon the table |90 of the addressing machine, the contact |31 is closed by contact lever |36 (see Fig. 6) electrical mechanisms of the machine with the current source. It must still be mentioned that in this initial position of the record sheet all brushes 90 and also the brush 95 are insulated from the contact plate 94 since the leading end of therecord sheet shall not be punched so that in the start position of the sheet thereare no holes under the brushes.

In order to start the machine 'for operation, the operator depresses the start key |15' (Fig. 6) thereby closing the contact |15. Consequently, the clutch magnet 18 for the sheet feed receives current from the lines |69, |13, flowing then over line |14 and contact |15 to the negative line |40. The magnet |18 will therefore be energized and will engage in the previously described manner the clutches 14, 15, thereby operating the feed rollers 10 to feed the record sheet upwardly (Figs. la, lb). Due to the energization of magnet 18 the contact 84 will be closed, said magnet establishing thereby its' own stick circuit over the contact 84, line |61, armature |66 of relay |64, and line |65 so that after instantaneous actuation the start key |15 may again be released and the contact |15 may open again.v The record sheet in operation and until a standard point hole comes under the brush 95 (Figs. la, 2a). In this moment a current impulse will be released from line |42 (Fig. 6) over line |48, contact plate 94, brush 95, line line |65 to the negative line |40, and said impulse will energize relay |64. Consequently the armature |66 will be drawn to the left so that the stick circuit of clutch magnet 18 leading over line |61 and armature |66 will be immediately 'interrupted, thereby disengaging the clutches 14 and 15, and interrupting the record sheet feed operation. The continuous record sheetI will therefore be stopped so that the standard point hole will be arrested under the brush 95 and all predetermined hole positions of the list now being in printing position will be under the analyzing brushes 90 for the list perforations. Due lay |64 the and |32 of mechanism (now being in home position) are lclosed, a current will now over line |69` contact |68. line |10, contact |34, line |1|, contact 32,

line |12" through the solenoid |09 to the line |46. The solenoid |09 will be energized and will lift its armature so that in the previously described thereby connecting the .assumed case, i. e. ii' no to the energization of recontact |68 has been closed and sinceA the coordinated K manner analysis of the address plate feeding channel will be effected by means of pins (Figs. 2a and 4) Due to the energization of the solenoid |08 the ccmtact |36 will be closed after the address plate been analyzed so that the magnet |30 will be energized over line |62. Consequently the frame |28 willl be drawn upwardly and the previously described fingers will engage the worm' I6 and will be moved to the right. Soon afterwards the contact |26 ,will be. closed and a little later also contact |21.,7 Ashas been mentioned above, the current circuit of the comparing magnets will be completed through contact |26. Since now, at the beginning 'of the addressing work, no address plate is in printing position, there will be no agreement with the perforations of the list being in printing position, and consequently thereof one or a plurality of the magnets |20 will become effective in the moment in which the contact |26 closes. The armature plate |22 will be feeding channel has already rocked by said magnets |20 in counterclockwise direction so that the contact |24 opens and the contact |25 will be closed. Timing is provided in such a waythat shifting of the contacts |24 and |28 is already completed if the contact |21 is closed by its coordinated slide. In the above printing position, upon closure of contact |21, a current will be sent over line |42, contact |21, line. |43, contact |25, line |46 and clutch magnet 63 to the negative line |40 so that by the energization of clutch magnet 63 the one-revolution clutch 49, 50 will be engaged and a plate feeding cycle will be initiated. In the moment in which the one-revolution clutch 49, 50 is engaged, the contact |34 will open due to the cam |34' now moving from its home position so that the current circuit of the analyzing magnet |09 will open which in turn causes opening of contact |35. Consequently thereof, also magnet will become deenergized and the-frame |28 will return to its home position thereby also opening immediately the contacts |26 and |21. 'Ihe magnets |20 will become deenergized and instead of contact |25 the contact |24 will again be closed. It will, however, be noticed that in the current source of the solenoid |09 no contact is open besides the contact |34. The contact |68 is still held closed by the relay |64 since the standard point hole is still under the brush 95. On the other hand, also since. the one-revolution clutch .31, 38 for the printing mechanism is not yet engaged. If now a plate has been advanced after one revolution of the cam disk 54, the contact |34 willvagain be closed by the cam |34 and thereupon the solenoid |09 will again be energized. This causes in the above described way closure of the current circuit of magnet |30` and consequently thereof closure of the contact |26 for actuation of the electric comparing mechanism. If then there is still no printing plate in printing position, magnet 63 will again be energized, a newplate feeding cycle will be initiated and the solenoid |09 will be deenergized by closure of contact |34. These operations will continue until the first printing plate reaches the printing position; it will be clearly seen that even if said printing plate is not provided with perforations corresponding to those of the list still being in printing position, the next plate will be advanced. If it is now .assumed that for instance after'a number of plate feeding cycles a. plate comes into .printing position the identification perforation of the contact |32 is still closed address plate is yet in which agrees with the dentication perforation of the list still being in printing position, the following operations will take place:

At the end of the preceding plate feeding cycle the contact |34 has been closed thereby deenergizing the solenoid |09. Consequently thereof, the contact |35 will have been closed and the magnet |30 will havev been energized which in turn causes closure of contacts |26 and |21 in time sequence. If now the perforations of the list and of the addressplate being in printing position are in agreement, both windings of the magnets coordinated to the perforated positions will be compensated while on all imperforate positions no energization of magnets will be effected at all; accordingly the armature plate |22 will remain in the position shown in Figs. 3 and 6 and the contact |34 will also remain closed. If then contact |21 is closed a current will flow from line |42 over contact |21, contact |24, line |44 and clutch magnet 4| to the negative line |40; due to the energization of magnet 4| the onerevolution clutch 31, 38 of the printing mechanism will be engaged. In the previously described mechanical way, however, simultaneously therewith also the one-revolution clutch 49, 50 for the plate feed mechanism will be engaged. During the first quarter of the operating cycle printing of the address plate being in printing position will be effected upon the list being in printing position,vand during the second and third quarter of the operating cycle the next plate will be advanced into printing position. Since upon release of both one-revolution clutches the contacts |34 and |32 will open, of course, also the magnets |09 and |30 will immediately be deenergized. After printing has been effected by the printing cam 29, the cam |3|' will encounter the contact |3| thereby establishing a shunt circuit to the start contact |15 and deenergizing immediately (still during the same operating cycle) the vclutch magnet 18 for the sheet feedingv mechanism. This magnet establishes then (if contact |3| opens again after having been left by the cam |3|') over contact 84, line |61, relay armature |66 and line |65 its own stick circuit; it must be mentioned in this connection that the contact |3| remains closed until the record sheet feeding mechanism having been engaged in the meantime has already moved the standard point hole away from the brush and that due to relay |64 which has been deenergized thereby, a connection will again be established by armature |66 between line |61 and line |65 before contact |3| opens. It will be clearly seen that immediately after the first quarter of the machine cycle after printing has been effected the sheet feeding operation is initiated whie the plate feeding mechanism is still in rest position. By the feeding mechanism the next list will now be advanced and as soon as the standard point hole |4 of the next list comes under the brush 95, the relay |64 will again be energized so that the stick circuit of the clutch magnet 18 for the record sheet feed is interrupted and the list will again be stopped in printing position. However, simultaneously therewith also the contact |68 will be closed; independently thereof whether the operating cycle of the printing and plate feeding mechanism or the operation of the paper feed mechanism is completed first, it is only if both operations are actually completed and if all parts are again in home andy restposition that the solenoid |09 will again be energized since its circuit includes as well the Accordingly,

contact' |68 as the contacts |34 and |32. Due to the energization of the solenoid |09 another com paring cycle will be initiated and depending upon the result of said comparison either the contact |24 remains closed or the contact |25 will be closed. If the contact |25 is closed, upon closure of contact |21 only the plate feeding mechanism. will be released electromagnetically and the next address plate will be advanced into printing position while the list will stay in its position since the shaft 33 of the printing mechanism is not rotating and consequently thereof also contact |3| will not be closed. However, if .the identication perforations are in agreement, the line |43 remains connected with the vcontact |24 and clutch magnet 4| will be energized which releases the plate feeding mechanism as well as the printing mechanism; depending upon the latter the paper feed mechanism will then again be automatically engaged after completion of the printing operation, and a new list will be fed into printing position. It will be clearly seen that all these operations will be repeated in automatic and uninterrupted sequence so that the proper addresses will be printed upon the lists which are fed through the machine one by one.

If the machine shall be adjusted to the manner of operation where a plurality of lists having identical identification perforations may occur, the lever |92 and pin |95 must be adjusted to the position shown in Fig. 2b so that the pin |95 is in vertical position and the one-re volution clutch 49, 50 is mechanically independent from the one-revolution clutch 31, 38, each clutch being then only releasable by its coordinated magnet 4| or 63 respectively. Starting of the operation is then effected in the same way as has been described in connection with the other manner of operation and finally the regular addressing operations will take place. Upon agreement of the perforations the one-revolution clutch 31, 38 will be released, due to the energization of magnet 4| and due to said release a printing cycle will be initiated; in the course |3| (Fig. 6) will be closed by a rotating cam |3| thereby initiating the record sheet feeding operation. It will, however, be seen that in the present instance (contrary to the other manner of operation) the clutch 49, 50 for the plate feeding mechanism will not be released. Accordingly, f

a, new list will be advanced, and the interruption of the feeding operation will be eected under the control of the standard point hole of the next list, said hole being analyzed by the brush 95. If now the next list bears the same identification perforation as the preceding list, i. e. if its perforation agrees with the perforation of the address plate still being in printing position, the contact |24 will remain closed and only magnet 4| will again be energized thereby initiating another printing cycle in the course of which the contact |3| will again be closed to initiate another record sheet feeding operation. The address plate will then still remain in printing position since the clutch for the plate feeding mechanism has not been released. These operations will continue as long as the subsequently advanced lists agree with the address plate still remaining in printing position, and accordingly the same plate will be printed upon a number of consecutive lists. If now finally a list with a higher identification number has been advanced, its identification perforation will not agree with the poreforation of the address plate being in printing position.

asia result of the comparing operof said cycle the contactv ation, the contact |25 will be closed and due to Y the energization of magnet 63 only the clutch 49, 50 will be released thereby initiating a plate feeding cycle. The next plate will noW be advanced and the same will be compared with the list being in printing position. If there is no agreement of the respective perforations which is the case if from the preceding list to the list just being in printing position there was a gap in the running identification numbers, the magnet 63 will be energized and the next plates will be advanced one by one; these operations will continue until the plate having the same number as the list in printing position has arrived at the analyzing station. Then there is again agreement and printing will be effected. Subsequently to this printing operation, however, the address plate will remain in printing position and as has been described, the next list will be advanced. If now there is no agreement of the perforations, the next address plate will be advanced while upon agreement printing will be effected and the next record sheet will only be advanced, and in this manner the voperating cycles will vautomatically, continue.

The invention is, of course, by no means limited to address plates having the index marks immediately provided thereon but it may be executed as Well by means of an accounting mechanism physically indicating the identification numbers of the address plates being in printing position, said accounting mechanism being shifted step by step in accordance with the feeding operations of the address plates.

While there have been shown and described and pointed out the fundamental novel features of the invention it will be-understood that .many changes and alterations and substitutions in the machine and in its operation may be made without departing from the spirit of the invention.
