Abstract

ABSTRACT OF THE DISCLOSURE

A binding machine comprises a base provided with a support for an article to be bound and a tape binding table;
a binding arm pivotable relative to the support for wrapping a first portion of a tape around the article and having at a tip portion thereof a tape binding device for supplying the tape through the tip portion and pressing a free end of the tape against another portion of the tape on the table. A tape sup-port member is spaced from the table and a displaceable tape clamp is interposed between the table and the support member;
a clamp control at the tip portion controlling and causing dis-placement of the clamp member to and from the support member.
A cutting edge at the tip portion cuts the tape between the support member and the clamp. A tape escape member withdraws a thus-cut end of the tape and a tape pushing member presses onto the support member the end of the tape extending from the tip portion.

Description

This invention relates to a binding machine and more specifically to a binding machine for binding an article to be bound interposed between a base and a binding arm pivoted to the base using a tape supplied from a tape reel to the tip por- -tion of the binding arm by causing it to rise and fall, the tip of the tape clamped on the side of the base.
There has heretofore been known a binding machine which comprises a tape binding table disposed at one end of a base, a tape -lamping rod disposed outside the tape binding table, a binding arm having its base section pivoted to the other end of thebase, a tape pushing member provided at the tip portion of the binding arm and for engaging the tape binding table, a tape cutting edge disposed outside the pushing member, and control means disposed at the tip portion of the binding arm and controlling and causing the clamping rod to approach and depart from the tape binding table. In this prior binding machine, after the leading end of a tape, withdrawn from the tip portion of the binding arm, is clamped between the binding arm and the clamping rod, the tape is pushed and an article to be bound is then inserted between the base and the binding arm.
Next, the tip portion of the binding arm is brought down towards the base so as to wind the tape around the article to be bound, and the wound end of the tape is pressed between the binding table and the pushing member. At the same time, clamping of the tape is released and the bonded end of the tape is cut off by the cutting edge between the binding table and the clamping rod.
Finally when the tip portion of the binding arm is pulled up, the fresh leading end of the tape is clamped between the binding table and the clamping rod.
However, in the above-described prior binding machine, ` 10796Z4 after cutting of the tape, the leading end of the tape tends to slip out from the gap between the binding table and the clamping rod along with the rise of the tip portion of the binding arm before the clamping rod comes into con-tact with the binding table or bond end of the tape, tends to remain and be clamped between the bonding table and the clamping rod, thus resulting in frequent binding troubles.
Furthermore, since the prior binding machine carries out the binding work of the article to be bound using the entire length of the tape pulled out from the tip portion of the binding arm towards the base, loosensing of the binding tape occurs frequently, thereby failing to pro-vide a sufficient binding effect.
,_ It is therefore an object of the present invention to provide a novel and improved binding machine.
The present invention provides a binding machine com-prising a base provided with a support for an article to be bound; a tape binding table on the base; a binding arm pivotable relative to the support for wrapping a first portion of a tape around the article and having at a tip portion thereof tape binding means for supplying the tape through the tip portion and for pressing a free end of the first tape portion against another portion of the tape on the tape binding table; a tape support member spaced from the binding table; a displaceable tape clamp-ing member interposed between the binding table and the support member; clamp control means disposed at the tip portion of the binding arm for controlling and causing displacement of the clamping member to and from the support member; a cutting edge disposed at the tip portion of the binding arm for cutting the tape between the support member and the clamping member and .,. . i, :. : .. .. -:

thereby cutting the first tape portion from the tape extending from the tip portion; a tape escape member disposed at the tip portion of the binding arm for withdrawing a thus cut end of the first tape portion so cut between the clamping member and :
the binding table; and a tape pushing member disposed at the ;
tip portion of the binding arm for pressing onto the support -member a thus cut end of the tape extending from the tip portion.

'~ ' fitted at the center of the base 10 so as to enable the adjust-ment of its height. A bracket 12 is secured to one end of the base 10 and a tape reel 21 having an adhesive tape 30 wound thereon in several turns is turnably adapted to a horizontal shaft 20 which is mounted to the bracket 12. The adhesive tape 30 has adhesive coated on its inner surface. A pair of right and left hand bracket 13, 13 and fixed to the other end of the base 10 and a tape binding table 15 is secured between these brackets.
Outside the tape binding table 15 is disposed a tape support member 40 via a cavity 16 which is open to the right and left as well as upwardly. As shown in Figures 3 and 7(A), the tape support member 40 is rotatable on a horizontal shaft 41 interposed between the brackets 13, 13. A tip portion of a resilient plate 17 secured between the brackets 13, 13 engages with the tape support member 40 and allows the support member 40 to rotate only in the clockwise direction as shown in Figure ~-7(A). A plurality of tape support grooves 42 (six grooves in this embodiment) are formed in and spaced around the outer cir-20 cumference of the support member 40. ' A bracket 18 (Figure 1) is secured to the base 10 between the table 11 and the reel 21 and rotatably supports a horizontal shaft 50. The base portion of a binding arm 51 is secured to the horizontal shaft 50. This binding arm 51 is allowed to rise and fall with respect to the base 10. Reference numeral 52 indicates a spring that urges the binding arm 51 in the rising direction. The binding arm 51 is furnished with a plurality of tape guide rollers 54 that are rotatable and lead the tape 30 to a tip portion 53 of the arm 51.-Inside the cavity 16, as shown in Figure 7(A), is A

provided a tape clamping member 60 which has an engaging section -;
61 to engage with the support grooves 42 of the support member 40 and is pressed towards the support member 40 by means of a spring 62. The tape 30, guided along the binding arm 51, is clamped between one of the support gr~oves 42 and the clamping member 60. Figures 4 and 5 illustrate modified embodiments of the support member 40 in which an annular groove is formed around the outer circumference of the support member 40 and elastic rings 43 are fitted into the groove so as to enhance the clamping force to the tape 30. It is necessar~ in this instance to arrange the rings 43 in such a manner that the ring protrudes beyond the bottom of the support groove 42.
A tape binding member~70 is resiliently mounted at the tip portion 53 of the binding arm 51 so that the member 70 abuts the binding table 15 when the arm 51 is lowered. A cam 55 as clamp control means is formed integrally with the tip portion 53 of the arm in order to separate the clamping member 60 from the support member 40 when the binding member 70 abuts the binding table 15. Reference numeral 80 designates a cutting edge for cutting the tape 30 between the clamping member 60 and the support member 40 when the clamping member 60 is separated from the support member 40. Reference numeral 81 represents a tape escape member for taking out the binding end 31 of the tape that is cut between the support member 40 and the clamping member 60 separated from the support member 40. In this embodiment, both cutting edge 80 and the escape member 81 are secured to the tip portion 53 of the binding arm 51.
Reference numeral 90 represents a tape pushing member for clamping the end 32 of the cut tape 30 between the tape pushing member 90 and the support member 40, the tape 30 being f ~

cut while the clamping member 60 is separated from the support member 40. As shown in Figure 7(A), the tape pushing member 90 is rotatably supported, via a horizontal shaft 92, by a member ~-91 that is in turn supported resiliently by a spring at the tip portion 53 of the binding arm 51. Reference numeral 93 designates a spring which urges outwardly thé tip portion of the pushing member 90. An engaging section 94 is formed at the tip of the pushing member 90 so as to engage with the support grooves 42 of the support member 40.
Figure 6 illustrates a modified embodiment of the pushing member wherein two pushing members 90, 90 are shown pivoted to the member 91 in parallel with each other. According to this construction, the tape 30 can be securely clamped at two points even if the parallelism between the engaging section 94 `
and the support grooves 42 is made somewhat inaccurate during production of the machine. Hence, this construction enhances the ' support strength of the tape.
Next, an explanation will be given of tape rewinding means 100. In Figures 8 and 9, an arcuate gear 101 is shown secured to the horizontal shaft 50 of the binding arm 51 and a gear 103 is fitted to a horizontal shaft 102 extending through ~:
the bracket 18. The gear 103 and the arcuate gear 101 are interconnected via an intermediate gear 104 so that when the :~ .
binding arm 51 is caused to rise and fall, the horizontal shaft 102 rotates by an angle smaller than 360, for example, by 180.
In this case, the arcuate gear 101 is always engaged with the intermediate gear 104.
A first pulley 110 is concentrically fitted to the horizontal shaft 20 supporting the reel 21 thereon, and a second pulley 120 having a belt groove 121 around its outer : . ,.: : . ... : . : .

~079624 circumference is fitted to the horizontal shaft 102 having the gear 103 thereto with a quantity of eccentricity L relative to the horizontal shaft 102. Both pulleys 110, 120 are inter-connected by an endless belt 130. A flat belt, a round belt or a V-belt may be used as the endless belt 130. The belt grooves 121 constitute belt tightening and loosening means that loosen the belt 130 and liberate the rotation of the reel 21 when the binding arm 51 is in the elevated state, and tighten the belt 130 and cause the reel 21 to rotate in a rewinding 10 direction when the binding arm 51 starts to be lowered. In ;.
this case, it is advisable to secure the belt groove 121 on the shaft 102 so that when the binding arm 51 is in the elevated state, its eccentric shaft C and the center O are aligned on the line passing the horizontal shaft 20 and the center O is interposed between the eccentric shaft C and the shaft 20. The reel 21 and the horizontal shaft 20 are interconnected via a frictional clutch mechanism 140, the frictional force of which is adjustable.
In the above-described embodiment of the binding machine, when the binding arm 51 is in the elevated state (waiting condition), the end of the tape 30 is clamped by the support member 40 and the clamping member 60 as shown in Figure 1, and a tensile force is applied to the tape 30 when an article 1 to be bound is inserted between the base 10 and the binding arm 51 and in contact with the adhesive surface of the tape 30.
In this instance, since the belt 130, extending around the first pulley 110 and the second pulley 120, is in a loose state, the interconnection is cut off between the first and second pulleys due to slip of the first pulley and the belt 130, whereby the reel 21 is freely turnable in accordance with the tensile , , strength of the tape 30. Hence, the tape 30 is pulled out from the reel 21 in accordance with the tensile force. As a result, no excessive pulling force is applied to the end 32 of the tape 30 and the tape 30 is prevented from escaping from the support member 40.
Next, when the binding arm 51 starts to be lowered towards the base, the tape 30 is wound around the article 1 to be bound. As the arm 51 is lowered further, the arcuate gear 101 is rotated, whereby its rotation is transmitted to the second pulley 120 provided on the horizontal shaft 102 via the intermediate gear 104 and the gear 103. As the second pulley 120 starts rotating, the belt 130 is brought under tension due to the eccentric movement of the eccentric belt groove 121, whereby rotation of the second pulley 120 is transmitted to the first pulley 110 via the belt 130 and further to the reel 21 through the shaft 20 and the frictional clutch 140. As a result, the reel 21 is rewound and turned counterclockwise in Figure 1 and any excess of the tape which has been unwound is rewound onto the reel 21.
Incidentally, the shaft 20 is rotated through a dis-tance greater than that required for rewinding the tape and the excess rotation of the shaft 20 is absorbed as a slip by the action of the frictional clutch 140. If the frictional force of the frictional clutch 140 is adjusted in this instance, the clamping force at the time of winding the tape can be indepen- -dently adjusted. In this embodiment, it is possible to suitably set the start time of fastening the belt 130 by adjusting the eccentricity L, the length of the belt and the like. This ad-justment performs also the function of the frictional clutch and, hence, may eliminate the same.

~0796Z4 As the binding arm 51 is lowered, the winding end of the tape 30 is first bonded by the binding table 15 and the binding member 70. Next, when the cam 55 strikes the clamping member 60 as shown in Figure 7(A), the pushing member 90 simul-taneously engages one of the support grooves 42, thus clamping the tape 30 therein.
Subsequently, when the binding arm 51 is pushed further -~down, the clamping member 60 is separated from the support member 40 by the cam 55. On the other hand, the support member 40 is pushed by the pushing member 90 and rotates clockwise. When the support member 40 turns by 1/6 as shown in Figure 7(B), that is, ;
when the support groove 42 rotates and causes displacement to the position at which it is opposite the clamping member 60, one of the guide rollers 54 strikes the support member 40, whereby the pushing member 90 stops descending.
At this time, when the binding arm 51 is further pushed down, the cutting edge 80 and the escape member 81 descend, as shown in Figure 7(C), whereby the cutting edge 80 cuts the tape 30 between the support member 40 and the clamping member 60 while the escape member 81 pushes down the binding end 31 behind the clamping member 60. For this reason, there is no possi-bility that the binding end 31 can be clamped between the clamp-ing member 60 and the support member 40 when the clamping member 60 returns towards the support member 40.
Next, when the binding arm 51 is pulled up, the clamp-ing member 60 returns to the side of the support member 40 and the pushing member 90 disengages from the support groove 42, is brought into pressure contact with the support member 40 and elevates along its outer circumference while clamping the por-tion near cut end 32 of the tape 30. After the clamping member :: , ' , ' 10'79624 60 engages the support groove 42 with the cut end 32 of the tape 30 interposed between them, the pushing member 90 disengages from the support member 40 along with the rise of the binding arm 51.
In the above-described binding process, the tape 30 is clamped between the pushing member 90 provided on the binding arm 51 and the support member 40 before the clamping member 60 returns and again clamps the fresh Cllt end 31 of the tape after the clamping member 60 is disengaged from the support member 40.
Consequently, even if a tension force acts on the tape, the cut . r end 31 of the tape 30 never disengages from the support member 40.
Incidentally, when the binding arm 51 is raised up-wardly, the reel 21 is turned clockwise in Figure 1 and the tape 30 is drawn out. Accordingly, the binding arm 51 is caused to ~ ;
return to i.ts initial position with~ut any excessive tension being applied to the tape 30. ~ ~ :
In Figure 1, reference numeral 19 designates a push- -ing member for pushing the article, and the pushing member 19 -is rotated clockwise about the shaft 14 by an interlocking ar-rangement on lowering of the binding arm 51 for pushing the article 1 inwardly into the table 11. ::
Figure 10 illustrates another embodiment of the present invention wherein like reference numerals are used to identify like constituent members as in Figures 1 through 7.
In this embodiment, the horizontal shaft 92 pivotally supporting the pushing member 90 ~s secured to the tip portion 53 of the binding arm 51, and a handle 97 pivoted to the binding arm 51 and urged by spring 95 in the upward direction. At the lower portion of the handle 97 there is linearly movably sup-ported a sliding member 96. These members 97 and 96 are con-A

nected with each other, and the cutting edge 80 and the escape member 81 are secured to the sliding member 96.
In the binding machine of this embodiment, it is -possible to push down the binding arm 51 by gripping the handle 97. When one of the guide rollers 54 strikes the support member 40, the lowering of the binding arm 51 is stopped and thereafter the cutting edge 80 and the escape member 81 descend as the handle 97 descends, as shown in Figure 11. The other actions are the same as those of the aforementioned embodiment.
Figure 12 illustrates the binding machine including further modification to the one shown in Figure 10, wherein an arm member 98 is formed integrally with the pushing member 90 so as to prevent the lowering of the handle 97 relative to the binding arm 51 until the pushing member 90 strikes the support member 40. A curved cam surface 99 is formed on the handle 97 so as to engage with the tip portion of the arm member 98.
In the binding machine of this embodiment, the arm member 98 integral with the pushing member 90 engages with a cam surface 99 on the side of the handle 94 to thereby prevent the rotation of the handle 97 when the pushing member 90 has not struck the support member 40. Hence, the cutting edge 80 and the escape member 81 do not descend. ~hen the pushing member 90 engages the support groove 42 of the support member 40 and causes inward displacement with the shaft 92 being as its center, the arm member 98 disengages from the cam surface 99, thereby :
permitting the rotation of the handle 97. It is thus possible to lower the cutting edge 80 as well as the escape member 81 by pushing down the handle 97. The other actions are the same as those of the aforementioned embodiments. In this embodiment, there is no possibility at all that the cutting edge 80 and the ~ .

.: . .. . . ..

escape member 81 start to descend before the clamping member 60 disengages from the support member 40.
Figures 14 through 1~ illustrate, respectively, modi-fied examples of tightening and loosening means.
The tightening and loosening means shown in Figure 14 has a second pulley~120 as a cam pulley and is constructed such that when the binding arm 51 is in the elevated state, a pro-truding section 123 of the belt groove 122 of the cam pulley 120 disengages from the belt 130 to thereby loosen the belt 130, 10 and when the binding arm 51 starts to descend, the protruding !
section 123 engages the belt 130 to thereby tighten the belt 130.
In Figure 15, the tightening and loosening means has a toothed belt 130 and first and second pulleys 110, 120 are toothed pulleys, a part of the toothing 124 being omitted from the second toothed pulley 120. In this embodiment, when the binding arm 51 is in the elevated state, the toothing 124 dis-engages from the toothed groove 131 of the belt 130 to thereby loosen the belt, and when the binding arm starts to descend, the toothing 124 engages the toothed groove 131 to thereby tighten the belt 130. The reel 21 is then rotated for rewinding.
In Figure 16, the tightening and loosening means has a roller like or pulley like pressing member 150 which presses the belt 130 as the binding arm 51 is lowered. When the binding arm 51 is in the elevated state, the pressing member 150 is separated from the belt 130 or is located at a position where no tension is applied to the belt 130. When the binding arm 51 starts to descend, the pressing member 150 is displaced in the counterclockwise direction about shaft 152 by the action of a spring 151 and presses the belt 130. Hence, the belt 130 is tightened and the reel 21 i5 rotated for rewinding.

Figure 17 illustrates still another embodiment of the binding machine of the invention wherein like reference numerals are used as in Figure 1 to identify like constituent elements as in the aforementioned embodiments. The binding machine of this embodiment includes a cylinder device 160 as a driving device connected to the binding arm 51 in order to repeat auto-matically the binding work. Upon actuation of a switch 161, the rod 162 of the cylinder device 160 is caused to reciprocate whereby the binding arm 51 connected to the free end of the rod 162 is caused to fall and rise, thereby effecting the binding of the article to be bound.
Instead of the above-described cylinder device, a motor or other drive means may be used as the driving device. ~ `
Figure 18 shows'.still another modification of the binding machine of Figure 17. This embodiment is particularly suitable for binding an elongate article 1 which is required to be bound at several positions simultaneously. This may be achieved by, for example, juxtaposing a plurality of binding - - machines (3 units in this embodiment) and actuating the cylinder devices 160, connected to the binding arms 51 of the binding -~ . :
machines by means of an actuation of only one switch 161.
Though the foregoing embodiments have been explained with reference to the use of the adhesive tape by way of ex-ample, the binding machine of the present invention may also be adapted to a type which uses a non-adhesive tape bondable upon pressure or heat, one which is equipped with means for separately applying the adhesive onto the wound portions of a non-adhesive tape, one which separately fixes the wound portions of a non-adhesive tape by means of fixing members, and so forth.
