CARD FEEDING DEVICE FOR EMBOSSING PRESSES.
APPLICATION FILED JULY 17, I920.

HARRY, e. TURNER, or CHICAGO, rumors.
CARD-FEEDING nnvrcn non. EMBOSSING-PRESSES;
To all whom it may concern: 1 y I Be'it known that I, HARRYG. TURNER, a citizen of the United Stateszof-America, and a resident of- Chicago, countyyof Cook, and State of Illinois,yhave invented certain new and useful; Improvements in Gard-Feeding Devices for Embossing Presses, of which the following is a specification.
Die presses of the type to which this invention relates. which are usually employed in the work of printing announcements; wedding invitations, etc.,. are found to be not well adapted for printing small cards due to the difficulty of gaging the cards with respect to the printing plate or die, and the time requiredfor doing-such work. When a die press is used for printingsmall cards it: is customary to. make the impressionson cardsof at least twicethefinal' dii. mensions so. as to prevent the cards. from:
falling through the gage board and to enable correct placing of the. cards without danger tothe operator.
Evenv with the double sized cards,to operate the press with'maximum efficiency re-- quires two operators for controlling the press, placing and removing the cards. and i there is the additional disadvantage-in that.
each card is printedfon a. plurality of times to use up the stock, the cards being cut apart after receiving the impressions.
The purpose of the present invention is to provide a guide whereby the cards may be fed to the press and accurately registered with the printing plate in a convenient way.
A further object of the invention is to provide a suitable construction for permitting a single operator, in addition to controlling the press, to feed to the press and remove therefrom cards which are substantially the same size as the printing plate.
' Another object of the invention is to provide a card guide which may be quickly adjusted for cards of different sizes.
These objects are accomplished by the de vice shown in the drawing in which- Figure 1 is a perspective view of'the improved attachment and shows the plunger of the press partly broken away.
Fig. 2 is a sectional view of one of the card guides taken on the line 2-2 of Fig. 1.
Fig. 3 is a similar sectional view taken on the line 3-3 of Fig. 1.
Fig. 4 is an enlarged sectional detail of a uide.
Briefly stated, the structure to which the Specificationof Letters Patent;
Apulicationlfiledil'uly 17, 1920; Serial No..396,979;
Patented Mar. 1 1921'.
ATT F C invention. relates comprises a plate; which is.
adjustably mounted onthe usual gage board and has an opening similar to the in the gage board and-through which the plunger of the press passes in making an impression. Opposed. grooved and flexible guides are adjustably mounted on the supporting plate and span the opening therein.
Cards are fed along the grooves, the rear one being used to push forward the forward cards into position for receivingthe impression and out from between the plunger and bed. The guides being flexible atv the point where they span the opening in the gage board, permit vertical motion of, the card supported therein under the action of the plunger in carrying the card against the face of the plate tween the guides may be changed by a simpleadj ustment and guides havinggrooves opening or die. The distancebe for receiving-stock of] different weights may r be easily substituted one for the other.
The drawing showsthe section. This plunger carries at its lower;
end the usual counter. 2'for coacting with a. fixed plate ondie on'the'bedofthe press.
press plungcnl i The plunger 1 reciprocates yertically in the bearing The attachment to which this invention re lates comprises a-base plate having slots,
5- extending in the direction. of length of the press whereby the plate may be adjustedin this direction with respect to the clamping means 6 for securing it to the usual gageboard. This adjustment carries the guide strip 7 toward or away from the plunger 1, the guide strip 7 being mounted in fixed position on plate 4. The opposite guidestrip 8 has slotted arms 9 permitting the shifting thereof along the plate 4 to which it is normally clamped by the thumb nuts 10. Guides 7 and 8 have grooves 11 extending along the. edges of the guides adjacent the plunger 1. At the left hand end of Fig.
' 1 the guide 8 terminates in the flat ungrooved rest 12 over whichv the cards are successively slid into the groove of guide 7 When a card is slid from the supply stack into first position the front and rear edges of the card will come to rest on the lower plate 13 of uide 8 and on the lower plate 14 of guide the forward edge of the card being below the curled-up edge 15 of the upper plate 16 of guide'7.' Asthe card is pushed along the'guides its rear edge passes below the curled-up corner 17 ofthe upper plate 18 of guide 8. The last card entered is always pushed to the position of the card indicated at 19; this position being regulated by the adjustable stop 20 to which the most forward card is pushed by the cards in the rear thereof. At the discharge end 21 of the guides they are curved upwardly to permit convenient removal of the cards. The parts of the guides which span the opening 22 in the plate 4 are flexible so as to freely move downwardly when engaged by the edges of the counter at the time of making an impression.
The upper members 16 and 18 are secured to the lower members of the guides by means of nuts 23 which have threaded engagement with posts 24 extending upwardly from the lower members. Springs 25 may be interposed between the nuts 23 and the guides, if it is'desired'to make these guides adjustable for receiving cards of different thicknesses.
In the operation of the device, plate A is adjusted on the gage board, the guide 8 is adjusted on plate 4, and the stop 20'is adjusted on plate l to cause the cards which are to be run to properly register with the plateor die which is in fixed position on the bed of the press. The cards are then fed successively'into' the guides, the last card pushing the forward ones ahead until 7 stopped by the stop 20. The cards are made the guides by sliding them over the art 12 of guide 8 and into the groove of the opposite guide. They are then pushed along the guides toward'plun- "The card in the last position abuttingthe stop is removed by raising the forward end above stop 20 and pulling thecard out of to easily enter the grooves. By removing the card, it permits the feeding of another. card into the opposite end of the guide.
Although but one specific embodiment of this invention is herein shown and described, it will be understood that details of the construction shown may be altered or omitted without departing from the spirit of this invention as defined by the following claims.
I claim: I i
