No. 673,370 Claims priority, application Japan, Oct. 12, 1966, ll/67,023 Int. Cl. G03b 27/32, 27/62 US. Cl. 355-42 2 Claims ABSTRACT OF THE DISCLOSURE BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF ATTACHED DRAWING FIG. 1 is a schematic side view of the manufacturing device for a voucher illustrating one embodiment of this invention. FIG. 2 is a perspective view showing an endless belt type transparent original voucher sheet with juxtaposed different kinds of vouchers manuscripts thereon. FIG. 3 is with a perspective drawing showing one embodiment of vouchers heretofore in use.

DETAIL EXPLANATION OF THIS INVENTION This invention is to provide a device for manufacturing vouchers through photographic copying on a sheet of printing paper. In the device a voucher manuscript having useful items for small vouchers is arranged on an endless belt along with other manuscripts having other information. These manuscripts can be exposed in succession when the endless belt is mounted on rotatable parallel rollers. In FIG. 2, a transparent original belt for vouchers is shown for a purchase requesting voucher (A), voucher for memorandum of person who requested goods, (B), a delivered goods inquiry voucher (C) and memorandum of orders (D).

As shown in FIG. 1, said original voucher belt 1 is mounted on between a pair of sprocket wheels 2a and 2b, and the belt 1 is shifted by rotating sprocket wheel 2a in the direction of arrow. Numeral 3 (FIG. 1) shows a manuscript ready for exposure, and 4 shows a transparent plate supporting the manuscript 3. Numeral 5 shows a known photographic copying machine of the type having transparent manuscript carrying table 6 on the upper surface, and the manuscript placed on the carrying table 6, may be copied on a printing paper through duplicating lens 7.

Said photographic copying machine may be of the type having a moving optical system, however, for convenience of illustration, the lens and lighting device 8 are assumed as stationary.

Numeral 9 shows a printing paper out in predetermined size by the cutting device 11 after the paper is drawn out from the roll 3,544,212 Patented Dec. 1, 1970 10, 12 shows an endless belt for transporting the printing paper 9. Said printing paper 9 is stopped at the position shown in the drawing for exposure, then discharged out of the machine, and next printing paper to be exposed is drawn into the exposure device interlocked with discharge of exposed printing paper.

Switch 13 is closed for a while as soon as one exposure is completed and short circuits the feeding circuit of the electromagnetic plunger 14 and the motor 15. Bell crank 16 connected to said electromagnetic plunger 14 is pivotally fixed on the stationary member of this device by a spindle 17, roller 18 hinged to said bell crank 16 is inserted into the notch 19a of the notched disc 19 which is forming one body with the sprocket wheel 2a.

When the electromagnetic plunger 14 is operated, microswitch 20, which pressed the actuator 20a to contact with one portion of bell crank 16, is closed, and maintains current to the electromagnetic plunger 14 and to motor 15, rotates the motor 15 even after the switch 13 is opened. When the disc 19 provided with notches 19a, 19b is rotated and the roller 18 is dropped into the notch 19b, contact of the microswitch 20 is opened and current to the motor 15 is interrupted.

Degree of rotation of said disc 19 provided with notches 19a, 19b corresponds to one piece, [(A), (B), (C), (D)] of the original belt 1 for voucher.

On the printing paper 9 superimposed images of voucher manuscript of the original belt 1 and the fixed manuscript 3 are photographically copied, and thus can be obtained different kinds of relative vouchers printed with common requisite items such as date, and amount of money.

For one writing system, carbon duplicating paper of different kinds of voucher bound together in predetermined number of sheets is used heretofore, (see FIG. 3), however, arrangement of diiferent kind of vouchers bound together is a very difficult task and when the number of sheets contained in a pad is great, it is difficult to obtain clear carbon copy for the lowest positioned voucher.

What we claimed is:

1. In a photographic device for manufacturing vouchers, the combination of a sheet of sensitized paper, a voucher manuscript holder, a beltlike plate mounted on rollers in juxtaposition to said manuscript holder so that a manuscript in said holder may be superimposed on said plate, lens means for focussing a combined image of the manuscript and the plate onto the sensitized sheet, means for moving said beltlike plate so as to present different portions thereof to said manuscript holder in line with the manuscript in said holder, said means for moving said plate including an electric motor and a magnetically actuated means for stopping said plate in any of a plurality of positions all of which are such as to align a voucher from on said plate with said manuscript to combine the images thereof on said sensitized copy sheet.

2. In a photographic device for manufacturing vouch ers, the combination of a sheet of sensitized paper, a voucher manuscript holder, a beltlike plate mounted on rollers in juxtaposition to said manuscript holder so that a manuscript in said holder may be superimposed on said plate, lens means for focussing a combined image of the manuscript and the plate onto the sensitized sheet,
