GEORGE W. PROUTY, OF DORCHESTER, MASSACHUSETTS.

PRINTING-PRESS.

Application filed September 29, 1913.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that l, GEORGE W. PRoUTr, a citizen of the United States of America, and a resident of Dorchester, in the county of Suffolk and State of Massachusetts, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Printing-Presses, of which the following is a specification.

This invention relates to a delivery mechanism and particularly to devices in this class adapted for use in connection with a printing-press, punching machine, numbering device, or similar apparatus adapted to print, impress, punch, or perforate cards or similar material. Its principal object is to provide a removable receptacle for the output of the machine, said receptacle having a frictionally supported bottom adapted to be moved downwardly a predetermined distance after each delivery thereto.

Another object of the invention is to provide a receptacle adapted to receive a predetermined number of the output of the machine and then be removed from the machine with its contents to be replaced by an empty receptacle of the same construction.

The invention consists in certain novel features of construction and arrangement of parts which will be fully understood by reference to the description of the drawings and to the claims hereinafter given.

Of the drawings: Figure 1 represents a plan of a delivery mechanism embodying the features of the present invention. Fig. 2 represents a front elevation of the same. Fig. 3 represents a right side elevation of the same. Fig. 4 represents a central longitudinal section of the same. Fig. 5 repre sents a horizontal section of a portion of the same, showing the delivery table, two receptacles, and the means for positioning said receptacles on said table. Fig. 6 represents a vertical section, the cutting plane being on line 66 on Fig. 5, and Fig. 7 represents a sectional detail to be hereinafter described.

Similar characters designate like parts throughout the several figures of the drawm s.

Tn the drawings, 10 is a portion of the frame of a printing or other machine adapted to operate on cardboard or other similar Specification of Letters Patent.

stock, this stock being fed between the feed rolls 11 and 11*. The feed roll 11 is secured on the shaft 12, the outer end of which has keyed thereto the ratchet Wheel 13, to which an intermittent rotation is imparted by the pawl 14 pivoted to the oscillating lever 15 movable about the shaft 12. An oscillating movement is imparted to the lever 15 by means of the connector 16, the opposite end of which is pivotally connected at 17 to the crank member 18. This member 18 is preferably a toothed disk and is driven by the pinion 19 secured to the revoluble driving shaft 20. The pinion 19 also meshes with the gear 21 secured to a revoluble shaft 22 having also mounted thereon and revoluble therewith a cam member 23. In the path of the cam member 23 is a roller 24 mounted upon the lever 25 freely movable about the shaft 20, the opposite end of said lever 25 having pivotally secured thereto the link 26, the upper end of which is pivotally connected to the member 27 adapted to be vertically reciprocated during each rotation of the cam member 23. The member 27 has secured thereto the vertical rods 28 adapted to be reciprocated in bearings in the support 29, to the upper face of which is secured a knife 30. To the upper ends of the rods 28 is secured the tie 31 to the front face of which is adjustably secured the knife 32. Between the knives 30 and 32 and the feed rolls 11 and 11 are located a plurality of rotary cutters 33 and 34, these cutters being mounted respectively upon the shafts 35 and 36, the outer ends of which have secured thereto gears 37 and 38 meshing with one another. The shaft 36 has also secured thereto a sprocket wheel 39 driven by means of the sprocket wheel 40 through the me dium of a sprocket chain 41. As the stock 42 is fed by means of the feed rollers 11 and 11 between the revolving cutters 33 and 34 the stock will be cut into strips. As the strips are fed between the revoluble cutters 33 and 34 they pass beneath guide fingers 43, over the upper face of the knife 30, and under the cutting edge of the knife 32. These strips are then deflected downwardly by means of the member 44 into a removable receptacle 45 positioned upon a delivery table 46. The plate 47 secured to the front edges of the sides of each removable receptacle 45 tie together the upper ends of said sides. After the ends of the strips of stock 42 have been fed the required distance the cam 23 will operate to move the knife 32 from its vertical position downwardly into the position shown in Fig. 4 of the drawings, thereby cutting the strips into sections of predetermined length. The length of the sections will be regulated by the distance the stock is fed between each two suc cessive cutting operations.

The delivery table 46 is secured to the stirrup 48, the upper ends of which are fastened to horizontal rods 49 mounted in bearings 5051 and having at their rear ends rack teeth 52 engaging with pinions 53 secured to a revoluble shaft 54 having a squared end by which said pinions may be turned to adjust the stirrup 48 and the knives 30 and 32 toward and from the front of the machine. T hisadjustment will regulate the distance between the removable receptacle 45 and rotary cutters 33-34, thus making it possible to care for the various lengths of sections cut from the strips of stock 42. The base portion 55 of each removable receptacle 45 is provided with an opening 56 therein for the reception of the fingers of the operator when it is desired to remove a receptacle or position an empty one upon the delivery table 46. The movement of the receptacle 45 toward the rear is limited by the stop blocks 57 while the central member 58 and side blocks 59 prevent lateral movement of said receptacles. The central member 58 is slotted and in the slot is positioned the fingers 60 pivoted at 61 and retained in the position shown in full lines in Fig. 5 within the walls of said member 58 by means of the spring 62. Interposed between the fingers 60 is a cam member 63 secured to a vertical shaft 64, having the thumb piece 65 secured to the upper end thereof. By operating this thumb piece 65 when the removable receptacles have been positioned between the central member 58 and side member 59 and against the rear stop blocks 57, the cam member 63 may be turned into the position indicated in dotted lines in Fig. 1, thereby moving the fingers 60 outwardly against the front faces of the base portion of the removable receptacles as shown in said figure.

It is obvious from' an inspection of the drawings that when the fingers 60 are moved into the position indicated in dotted lines the receptacles are locked in position to receive the output of the machine. The sides 66 of the receptacle 45 are each provided with a vertical slot 67 into which project the outwardly extending ribs 68 of a movable bottom 69. Secured to each end of the movable bottom 69 by means of a screw 70 is a leather plate 71 held in frictional contact with the outer face of the removable receptacle 45 by means of a flat spring 72. By this construction the movable bottom 69 is frictionally supported in the side members of the receptacle 45, but if forced downwardly therein a predetermined distance it will be retained in its adjusted position until further force is applied thereto. In ears 73 extending rearwardly from the tie member 29 is an oscillating shaft 74 having secured thereto at each end a lever 75, the forward ends of said levers having mounted therein the ends of a shaft 76 on which is mounted a roller 77 for each receptacle 45 used. The shaft 74 has also secured thereto an arm 78 to which is adjustably secured a weight 79, said weight being adapted to act as a counter weight for the rollers 77 so that the pressure on the stock may be regulated while said stock is being fed. A spring 80 secured to the lever and bearing against a stop pin 81 serves to retain the rollers 77 in their normal raised position. The downward movement of the lever 75 about the axis of the shaft 74 is regulated by the adjustable stop member 82 mounted in either end of the member 31 supporting the movable knife 32.

The support 29 may be adjusted along the rods 49 and clamped in adjusted position by means of the set screws 83, the object of this adjustment being to provide for the separation of the strips at proper points when printed stock is being operated upon.

In the operation of the delivery mechanism the stock 42 is intermittently fed by the feed rollers 1111 to the rotary disk cutters 3334 which in their rotation cut the stock into strips, the ends of which in the continuation of the feeding thereof are fed into the receiving box or receptacle 45. With the feeding mechanism at a standstill the operating mechanism will move the knife 32 downwardly and cut sections of predetermined lengths from the strips of stock.

During the downward movement of the knife 32 the members 82 will act upon the levers 75 and cause the rollers 77 to depress the stock upon the movable bottoms 69 and move them downwardly a predetermined distance overcoming the friction by which said bottoms are normally supported in adjusted positions. When the rollers 77 are again raised new lengths of stock may be delivered to the receptacle on top of that previously delivered.

It is obvious that by changing the position of the stud 17 on the crank member 18 the feed of the stock may be increased or decreased and as the operation of the knives 3032 remains constant the lengths of the memes sections to be cut from the strips of stock 42 may be varied at Will.

The receptacles are adapted to receive a given number of sections of stock before becoming filled and when the required number of sections has been delivered to each box, the boxes are removed and empty boxes or receptacles inserted in lieu thereof.

It is believed that the operation and many advantages of the invention will be fully understood from the foregoing description.
