 Thailand market which were included  Oldsmobile, GMC Trucks, Jaguar, Ferrari, Morris of  British Motor Corp, Holden, Prince from Japan and Vespa Scooters ( VESPA ).  

 

Kian Gwan Motors Company was the first company in  circa 1957 A.D.  to import Vespa Scooters. to be sold in Thailand. Kian Gwan Motors had appointed many Vespa dealers nationwide at that time , including Chiang Mai, Udon Thani, Nakorn Rachasima,  Hat Yai, and Betong , bordering Malaysia, etc. Vespa Scooters has become a Thai favorite and popular scooter because it can be used conveniently to live style and with its  beautiful shape . Vespa Scooters  has always been a favorite  scooter of fans in Thailand. Thanks to the video of fan clubs in youtube which was shown by .....click here

Besides these , Kian Gwan was operated a shipping lines Compagnie Maritime des Chargeurs Réunis ( บริษัทเดินเรือ จาร์เกอร์รูนิส )  to provide sea-freight shipment of goods  to worldwide market. In 1940 , Kian Gwan Co., (China) Ltd. was incorporated in Hong Kong for general import / export at Hong Kong Bank Building. Kian Gwan ( Siam ) Company Limited also imported Rex Rotary to distribute black & white photo-copy machines to Thailand market and become  the sole-distributor to Thailand market of National Cash Register Company in selling Cash Registers and Accounting Machines. The National Cash Register Co. is now becoming the  NCR Corporation   which  is one of the most  famous computer manufacturer of United States. The company businees has been expanded rapidly. The goods and services of company became well-known and popular  to all sectors  which are included government offices banks finance companies government enterprises and companies. 

                                             

 

 

 

Cash Register : In most shops or retail stores, each transaction was meticulously rung up on the cash register kept on or behind the counter. In those days , the register was most commonly the glistening, sumptuously embossed, 'brassbound' model made by the National Cash Register Company. The machine recorded each transaction on a journal roll so that the shopkeeper was able to balance his cash against the record after each day's business.

Kian Gwan Co. (Thailand) had established an NCR Division in Thailand ( Bangkok )  to import "NCR Paper"( กระดาษเอ็นซีอาร์)  or Cabonless Copy Paper (กระดาษทำสำเนาในตัว คาร์บอนเลสก๊อปปี้เปเปอร์ ) to Thailand and Burma market . In 1953, two of chemists Barrett K. Green and Lowell Schleicher of National Cash Register Company  in Dayton Ohio submitted a patent "Pressure responsive record materials" for a carbonless copy paper. This became US Patent 2,730,457 and was commercialized worldwide as "NCR Paper".

Early commercial computers

by https://www.technikum29.de/en/computer/commercial.php#ncr446

In contrast to computers used for scientific applications, commercial data processing systems have a different structure, since they are optimized to support large storage systems and to process lots of data, as in payroll applications and the like. Sometimes the distinction between scientific and commercial systems is not a clear one. The examples below are typical small to medium systems for commercial applications.

The NCR 446 is a typical example of a 2nd generation computer (transistorized). It was developed 1966/67 in Germany at the "National Registrier Kassen GmbH" in Augsburg by four engineers fresh from the university. One year later their development was finished and the system announced.
The architecture is rather unique. Programs are stored on a paper tape while operations are controlled by means of a threaded wire ROM. The system was sold as a accounting machine but was not limited to that area of application.
The system not only contains the paper tape reader for the program control, but also two paper tape readers for input data, one paper tape punch, a keyboard, and an IBM ball-head typewriter.
This system was quite expensive. The basic model without a paper tape punch and without the additional paper tape readers for data input was sold for about 35,000 DM (about 18,000 EUR) - about as much as three mid-class cars would have cost at the same time.
The NCR 446 was the first "small" commercial system which was able to print text as well as numerical values. Such a machine was used by structural engineers to perform the necessary calculations and directly generate a printout that could be used by the customer. (Competing systems like the Olivetti Programma 101, 203 could only print plain numbers on a small strip of paper.)
Watching the operation of the machine is a great experience. Things like the calculation of a square root allow the viewer to get an idea of the underlying algorithm. Since the program is stored on a paper tape, every step performed by the machine can be seen.

 

Paper tape accessories:

Also interesting are typical paper tape accessories as shown below. It is next to incredible that not too far ago programs had to be prepared with tools like these. The figure below shows a manual paper tape punch on the left which can be used to punch programs on a paper tape. For the most basic version of the NCR 446 which lacked the attached paper tape punch, this was the only way to create program tapes!


                                                      Manual puncher for paper tape (left) und Tapewinder (right)

Programming in those days was done as follows: First, the program was written down by hand. Each character was then translated manually using a NCR supplied code table to its corresponding numerical code. The paper tape was then punched by a secretary. Correcting errors was obviously rather cumbersome and time consuming.
The NCR 446 in the museum's collection allowed the creation of paper tapes by means of the built-in keyboard and the automatic paper tape punch unit at an additional cost of 20,000 DM (10,000 EUR).
The motor driven paper tape winder shown on the right could be used to wind the paper tapes after using them on the computer.

 

 

 

24. NCR 395 Electronic Data Processing System - Transistors / Semi Conductor

 

 

 

25. NCR 400 Electronic Accounting Machine ( Magnetic Ledger Card System ) . The machine was built with discrete components , mostly - transistors, resistors and diodes. The components were soldered to rows/columns of wire wrap modules with interconnecting wires wrapped to each of  module pin. The intermittent problem of such a cold joint in soldering or faulty transistor, diode, resistor, capacitor etc. had to be found and replaced it step by step 'PC' Program-Counts' troubleshooting which was mostly by using  Tektronic Oscilloscope .

 

 The technical training classes on NCR 400 in those days in 1970 were around 12-16 weeks . They were conducted by NCR Australia at The Technical Training School , Turrella , Sydney , New South Wales,  Australia . The training courses were classes of Basic Computer Concenpts and theory of NCR Class 400.

29. NCR  499  Data Processing System

NCR 499 data processing system is a low cost, general-purpose computer designed for first-time computer users in the commercial, industrial, manufacturing, educational, government , medical industries, retail industries and finance industries . Basic system features a 12K processor, 75- character-per-minute bi-directional matrix printer, magnetic tape cassette transport, and continuous forms handler. Magnetic tape cassette can be used to enter data and application software. Optional features include expanded memory, up to four magnetic tape cassette transports, and continuous forms feeder. The system can also accommodate peripheral units such as line printers, card reader and disk unit.
