The IBM 1402 Card Reader-Punch was designed in 1959 as the input unit for the IBM 1401 data processing system. The 1402 was a combination punch and reader with an input capacity of 800 cards per minute and an output of 250 cards per minute. IBM Rochester had responsibility for manufacturing the 1402.
IBM introduced its IBM System/3 computer (IBM 5410) on 30 July, 1969, to meet the computing needs of small businesses. It was the first system totally developed by the company’s laboratory in Rochester, Minnesota, and the most significant IBM product announcement since the IBM System/360 in 1964. It featured a smaller punch card which could encode up to 96 characters per card. The System/3 used IBM’s new monolithic integrated circuits.
