Title: Label stamper with a guide channel for receiving the side edge of a tape

Abstract: An improved label stamper which is capable of stamping prices on labels attached on a tape so as to attach the stamped labels on commodities is disclosed. A tape loading mechanism of the label stamper is constituted such that a loading case goes in and out of the machine by functions of a pair of folding and extending legs, so that the label tape can be loaded in a convenient manner. A guide is constituted such that a front plate and a rear plate are fastened across a narrow gap, and this gap forms a guide channel. In a holding mechanism, a push plate is disposed facing toward a base plate, and the push plate interlocks a movable lever to the loading case. Thus, if the tape is inserted into the guide channel, the tape is automatically press-held to the base plate. In a stamping mechanism, a selecting hole of a selecting wheel for driving a stamping belt is provided with a recess and a triangular protuberance. Thus two selecting wheels will never be engaged together, and fingers of a selecting bar are accurately coupled to the selected wheel. In a carrying mechanism, carrying rollers are provided in the form of a cartridge, and this cartridge is replaceably accommodated within a cartridge compartment. This improves the compactness and the performance of the label stamper, and the cartridge can be conveniently replaced.
