The Kazan Typewriter Factory has mastered the production of the rapid-action type printing mechanism TBPM-161200. The new mechanism consists of digital wheels, a device for pulling through the paper, and an electromagnetic case. It is controlled from a special electronic unit which connects its electric circuit with an electronic computer. The unit of digital wheels has 16 printing wheels and 16 little mallets. The speed of the printing is 1,200 lines per minute. The kinematic scheme of the TBPM-161200 consists of the controlling mallets, electromagnetic printing parts, shaft with digital wheels, guiding and coloring tape, elastic clutch, damper, roll with paper, mechanism for feeding paper, generator of pulses, contact breaker, spool with coloring tape, electromagnetic clutch, lever, and terminal switch-over units. The mechanism can be used in different branches of industry for recording the parameters of high-speed processes, in systems of automation of centralized control, and traffic control.
