  • Patent number: 4753334
    Abstract: Automatic device for guiding and loading magnetic tape cassettes into a machine which loads tape onto the cassettes. The device includes an inlet funnel chute wherein a sensor determines the open side of the cassette. The cassette is then dropped onto a rotatable plate wherein sensors sense the location of the screws in the cassette and then the cassette is oriented for and passes to a second rotatable mechanism for righting the cassette. A logic unit evaluates the information from the two sensors and controls the rotatable plate and second rotatable mechanism to properly orient and righten the cassettes for the next station.

  • Patent number: 4714212
    Abstract: A pneumatic arrangement for the tensioning of a tape in a machine for loading magnetic tape onto a cassette, having a closed tensioning mechanism containing container that is under a vacuum for forming a tension loop in the tape and having curved elements for the guiding the tape at the inlet and outlet of the container, wherein the tensioning mechanism container and the outlet guiding element are pivotably mounted to be controllably moved between two indicated positions in order to be able to align the outlet guiding element at one instance, to a first processing station of the machine and, at another instance, to a second processing station of the machine without causing undesirable vibrations of the tape itself.
