IBM Type 032 Alphabetical Printing Punch
The Type 032 was developed by A. W. Mills and D. J. Oldenboom and introduced in 1933. It was IBM's first commercial printing punch, and it was arranged to simultaneously punch alphanumeric data into cards and print corresponding characters across the top of the card. The machine operated in an entirely automatic mode in which the user merely depressed the keys as though typewriting and with the same speed.
