The Monarch is a keyboardless machine,
designed specifically for tape operation. It
has a casting speed which can be varied
from 8 to 14 lines per minute. The
Monarch is operated by the newly
developed 750 impulses-per-minute
Fairchild Teletypesetter Operating Unit.
The Monarch is a non-mixer linecasting
machine. It may be ordered in one, two,
three, or four-magazine models with
standard 90-channel Intertype Visilite magazines.
A Push Button Magazine Shift shifts
magazine frame from one operating
position to an adjacent position in a
matter of seconds by push button control.
Double-thread Distributor-screws permit feeding two matrices per revolution instead of one, thus
speeding up removal of matrices from the distributor box without increasing the rate of lateral travel on
the distributor bar.
SAFETY FEATURES OF MACHINE
The automatic double stack galley will accept up to 24 inches of slugs without attention from the
monitor. When the double stack is full, the Operating Unit is shut off automatically by the microswitch
at the left end of the galley.
The Distributor Safety Microswitch shuts off the Teletypesetter Operating Unit whenever the distributor
clutch is disengaged.
The loose line stop performs three functions; it shuts off the Teletypesetter Operating Units, locks the
assembling elevator in normal position and prevents the second elevator from seating at transfer
position. Thus the monitor can can return the loose line to casting position, set the quadder flush left
and cast the short line so it will appear in first proofs for subsequent corrections.
No. 28681 was shipped early in 1960.
Equipment available for the MONARCH
TOU 75-1 750 OPM operating Unit
MODELS A, B, C - INTERTYPES
Models A, B, and C Intertype machines are adaptable
to Teletypesetter operation.
Model A - Single 90-channel magazine.
Model B - Two 90-channel magazines.
Model C - Three 90-channel magazines.
Selection from one magazine at a time is controlled
from the keyboard, the operator must wait until
matrices selected have been distributed before
manually bringing any other magazine into operative
relationship with the keyboard and distributor.
This change in magazine position is accomplished
manually by turning a crank located above the right
side of the keyboard.
A change from slow to high speed distributor was made July 21, 1921 on Intertype No. 4086.
The slow speed assembler was standardized Aprll14, 1930 on Intertype No. 10675 and up.
A new style removable banking bar was adopted in JUly 1931 on Serial Nos. 11175, 11201, 112179 11219, 11221, 11228 to 11242, 11251 and up.
Note: When equipped with side magazines these models are known as ASM, BSM, and CSM.
Selection of matrices from the side magazine is controlled from an auxiliary keyboard located adjacent
to the right side of the main keyboard, in a position to prevent installation of the Teletypesetter
Accordingly, Models ASM, BSM and CSM are not adaptable to Teletypesetter control.
MODEL F INTERTYPE
Model F is adaptable to Teletypesetter.
Two 90-channel Main Magazines. The set of keyboard
rods is pivoted at the lower end and may be rocked to
engage escapements of the lower magazine, thus
permitting selection of matrices from either magazine
under control of the keyboard.
Two distributors arranged to provide continuous
distribution from both magazines.
90-key keyboard — shifting of the keyrod assembly is
controlled manually from a lever located near the
assembler slide, just above the center of the keyboard.
Note: When equipped with side magazines, this model is known as FSM. Selection of matrices from
the side magazine is controlled from an auxiliary keyboard located adjacent to the right side of the
main keyboard, in a position to prevent installation of the Teletypesetter operating unit.
Model FSM is not adaptable to Teletypesetter control.
MODEL G INTERTYPE
The Model G (mixer) is suitable for Teletypesetter application.
The Model G mixer is not suitable for Teletypesetter
when equipped with auxiliary side magazines.
The only Teletypesetter installation on G-4 mixer was
at Hondo, Texas Anvil-Herald
It was later changed over to another type of linecasting
The Model G Intertype mixer has either two or four
main magazines. The main magazines may be any
combination of standard 90-channel and wide 72-channel magazines.
The Model G Intertype is similar to the Model F mixer.
