Intertype Monarch

Intertpe Monarch

MANUFACTURED in 1962, Serial No. 34515.

The Intertype Monarch was designed without a manual keyboard. It relied totally on Teletypesetting (TTS) for setting type, using instructions from perforated tape.

It had an output of 14 lines per minute. A suction manifold held the matrices to the delivery belt as they were delivered at high speed to the assembler.

It used push-button operations for all power functions, magazine, and quadding to put the 'white spaces' in lines.

If the machine stopped, lights on the control panel informed the operator of the source of the problem.

The Monarch was on sale from 1958, and this machine is believed to date from 1964
