paper tape reader, pin reader

This is a really wild guess; In the old minicomputer world a "stiftstation" is just that - a reader for punched paper tape that read off the holes with a mechnical pin reader. I did some work for Facit nearly 20 years ago and they where experts on these products. This could also mean that bansystem refers to a "papersbana" i.e. a route for paper(tape).
