IRONINGr-MACHINE.
Specification of Letters Patent. Patented NOV. 29, 1921.
Original application filed July 2, 1917, Serial No. 178,286. Divided and this application filed November 13, 1917. Serial No. 201,786.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that we, CHAnLns E. WAREAM and DANA H. BENJAMIN, citizens of the United States, residing at Cincinnati and Cleveland Heights, respectively, in the counties of Hamilton and Cuyahoga, respectively, and State of Chio, have invented cer tain new and useful Improvements in Ironing-Machines, of which the following is a specification.
This invention relates to ironing machines and more particularly to machines for ironing shirts.
One form of machine for ironing shirts comprises an ironing. member or chest which cooperates with an ironing board upon which the shirt is dressed, said board having a bosom receiving portion and carrying an adjustable neck band former curved to produce the proper contour of the neck band be fore ironing the shirt. The ironing board is usually so formed as to produce a transverse folding line in the yoke practically tangent to the back of the neck band, and this term of shirt makes it ditlicult to iron what may be called the back corners of the yoke, to-wit, those portions of the yoke lying between the rear curved corners of the neck band and folding line in the yoke. These back corners of the yoke are commonly ironed by back corner ironers, which heretofore have been adjusted by hand into position adjacent the expanded neck band "former, so as to properly position them for the various sizes of neck hand operated upon by the machine.
The present invention has for its object to provide an ironing machine whose back corner ironers do not require to be adjusted by hand, but are moved into proper ironing relation with the neck band former, in all adjusted positions of the latter, by the ordinary operation oi the machine to produce ironing relation between the chest and board. j
A further object of the invention is to provide a back corner ironer which is automatically adjusted into proper ironing position by the relative ironing movement of the bed and chest, and which back corner ironer produces proper results regardless of the size to which the neck band former is adjusted.
Further objects of the invention are in part obvious and in part will appear more 1n detallhereinafter.
The invention comprises the construction and arrangement of parts hereinafter de-.
scribed and claimed.
In the drawings, which represent one embodiment of the invention, Figure 1 is a front elevation of one form of ironing machine on the line 6-6 Fig. 5; Fig. 7 is a cross section on the line 77 Fig. 5; Fig. 8 is a detail plan view of the neck band former; F ig. 9 is a longitudinal section thereof on the line 9-9 Fig. 8; Fig. 10 is a cross section on the line 1010 Fig. 8, and Fig. 11 is a detail view, partly in section, showing the operating mechanism'tor the back corner ironer.
This application is a division of our prior application for ironing machine, filedJuly 2, 1917, Serial No. 178,286 to which reference may be had for a more complete description of a machine embodying the invention. So far as illustration or description of said machine are required for the purpose of this case, it comprises a suitable frame 1 having an upright pillar 2 at one side and at its op posite side standards 3 which support a head 4 carrying the stationary ironing chest or member 5. Said chest is of common form, comprising a hollow metal member heated in any suitable manner, such as by steam circulated through its inner chamber 6 by means of the pipes 7. At one end of said chest is a recess 8 which registers with the neck band former or" the board when the latter is brought into ironing relation with the chest, as will hereinafter appear.
The pillar 2 supports on a vertical axis a rotatable turret or frame 9, each of whose two arms supports an ironing board. By rotation of said frame on the pillar either of said boards may be moved from the dressing or loading position at the left in Fig. 1 to a position directly beneath the chest, as at the right in Fig. 1. Since both of the boards are alike in all respects description of one will suflice for both.
Each arm of the frame 9 is formed as a hollow sleeve 10 to receive a post 11 depending from the base 12 of the board. Said base may also be provided with a depending pin or bar 13 sliding in an opening of a bracket 14 on the frame 9 and arranged to prevent rotation of the board on the frame 9. vThe base 12v is provided with upright webs 15 which carry a block 16 attached to the underside of a longitudinal bar 17 lying in a recess of the board beneath the padding 18 thereon. This bar extends from the tail end of the board to a point near the neck band thereof, where it is provided with recesses to receive vertical pins 19 on'which are sleeves 20 mounted in recesses in the stationary forward portion 21 of the neck band former. The sleeves can rise and fall with the ironing motion, so as to allow the neck band former to sink with the padding when ironing pressure is applied to the shirt, but the connections described absolutely prevent any horizontal motion of member 21 relative to the swinging frame 9. Consequently whenever the shirt board is brought into proper position beneath the ironing chest the curve of the front portion of the neck band I former lies in proper registering relation with the recess 8 of the chest.
The shirt board, indicated at '22, is attached to and carried by a hollow frame 23 having a base 24 sliding longitudinally on V ways of the base 12 '(see Fig. 7). At one end the board 22 carries a back yoke receiving member 25, from which rises a plate 26 having a head 27 provided with a recess or slot to receive a transversely extending rod 28 whose opposite ends enter openings in the adjustable back portions 29 of the neck band former. Said portions 29 are attached to rods or pin 30' which enter horizontal diagonally disposed openings in the stationary forward portion 21 of the neck band former. l/Vhen the frame 23 with the attached shirt board 22 is moved back the rod 28 is also carried back and moves with it the adjustable rear portions 29 of the neck band former, said portions moving from the full line to the dotted line position Fig. 8, and thereb expanding the neck band former, but su stantially maintaining its shape or form and its registering relation with the recess of the chest, and also preserving the tangent relation of the transverse end edge of the board to the back of the neck band former.
31 indicates a neck band clamping member, whose forward portion 32 is in the form of an apron depending in front of the sta tionary front portion of the neck band former, and whose body portion slides longitudinally in a recess 33 of the neck band former. This clamping member is suitably connected to a rod 34 carrying a spring 35 adapted to normally pushthe clamping device away from the neck band former. Rod 34 extendsrearwardly through an opening in an l. shaped member 36 and then through a guiding opening in an upwardly extending portion 37015 a slide 38 movable longitudinallyin the portion 21 of the neck band former and provided with a recess 39 to receive the lower edge of member 36. 'Between members 36 and 37 is located a light compression spring 40. The opening in member 36 is slightly larger in diameter than the rod 34, so that When the vertical portion of member 36 assumes a position askew to the axis of rod 34 it grips the rod and prevents it frompmoving forwardly.
Nevertheless," the clamping device can be pushed backwardly by pressure applied directly to its exposed portion, which oscillates member 36 about its lower edge and releases said rod 34 from the locking device.
Slide 38 is also provided with a depending notched portion 41 to receive an upwardly extending toe 42 on a bar 43 slidably mounted in a recess or channelof thebar 17, and whose forward end (see Fig- 5) is pivotally connected to one arm of a lever 44 whose other .arm is pivotally connected to a rod 45. Said rod, when pulled for- Wardly, moves the clamping member 31 in to firm clamping engagement with the neck band. The actuating means for said rod is as follows: v
Webs 15 of the stationary base 12 support a cross shaft 46 carrying a gear segment 47 and a cam 48. Segment 47 cooperates with a gear segment 49 rotating on a shaft 50 and carrying a depending arm 51 adapted to move between an abutment 52 of the movable frame 23 and a cross bar 53 carried thereby. A pin 54 extending laterally from the arm 51 engages the depending arm 55 of a pivoted lever whose other arm 56 carries a roller 57 lying beneath the horizontal arm 58 of a latch lever pivoted at 59 and provided with a depending 60 whose toe 61 lies at one side of rod 62. Rod 62 is attached to the cross bar 53 and extends through guiding openings in frame member 63. Said toe 61 also lies in front of a locking member 64 having a base 65 seated in V the rod by a compression spring 66. Cam
48 lies opposite and cooperates with a roller 6'? on the lower arm of a pivoted lever whose upper arm is pivotally connected to a sleeve 68 having sliding movement on the rod 45 and lying adjacent a compression spring 69 between said sleeve "68 and nuts 70 adjustably threaded on the end of said rod. Rod 45 is also provided with a collar 71 serving as a seat for one end of a compression spring 7 2, whose opposite end abuts the frame 23. Shaft 46 extends out through one of the webs 15 and on its outer end i provided with an operating handle or lever 73.
The shirt isdressed upon the board when lying in the loading position at the left inv Fig. 1, with the neck bandsurrounding the neck band former, said former being in collapsed position. The clamping device 31 is pushed with the fingers into light clamping engagement with the neck band to temporarily hold the same. The operator then lifts the handle or lever 73 in Fig. 5. Thefirst motion of said lever is an idle motion so far as the gear segment 49 is concerned, as the lever 51 is moved idly from abutment 53 to abutment 52. During this motion cam l8 moves the rod 4C5 to the right in Fig. 5 and through the spring 69 moves the clamping device 31 backwardly into powerful clamping engagement with the shirt neck band. Further upward m0- tion of lever 7 3 causes the lever 51 to push back the frame 23, which carries back with it the board 22 and .back yoke receiving member 25 and the rear portions 29 of the neck band former, thereby expanding said neck band former and filling the neck band of the shirt.
The shirt is now ready for ironing and the frame 9 is swung around to bring the dressed board into ironing relation with the ironing chest.
Upward movement of the board into ironing engagement with the chest may be produced in any suitable manner. The drawings show for this purpose a cylinder 73 to which fluid pressure is admittedwhen desired to elevate its piston 74, and as the rod 7 5 of said piston lies beneath the post 11 the board is raised by fluid pressure.
Referring now to Figs. 2 and 5, 76 indicatcs two like back corner ironers which slide in or on guiding members 77 carried by the chest. The lines of movement or said back corner ironers diverge at the same angles and in the same directionsas the rods 30 of the neck band former, and the inner ends of said back corner ironers are curved to correspond with the curvature of the rear portions 29 of the neck band former. These back corner ironers are movable as described in order to enable them to be adjusted inwardly into registering relation with the neck band former, whereby, when the chest and board come together, said back corner ironers iron those portions of the shirt lying between the'curved rear portions of the neck band "former and the folding line at the end of the board, and
a sleeve 84.
this regardless of the size to which the neck band former may be adjusted. The actuating mechanism for the back corner ironers is as follows:
iiach back corner ironer is pivotally con nected to a link 78, the two links'FS being connected to the opposite arms of a yoke 7 9 whose central portion is pinned or otherwise connected to rotate with a cross shaft 80 on the head 4-. One end of said shaft carries an arm 8lconnected by a clevis 82 to a rod 83 having slidably mounted thereon 85 represents a pressure spring lying between said sleeve and a collar 86 adjustably mounted on rod 83. Sleeve 84 is pivotally connected to an arm 87 on a shaft 88 provided within the head l with an arm 89 carrying an antiiriction roller 90.
91 re aresents an abutment plate hin ed at 92 at one side of the recess 8 of the chest so as to be capable of being moved from the inoperative position shown in dotted lines,
2 to the full line operative position indicated in said view. In this position the abutment plate lies directly over the neck band former of the board, and said plate carries a slidably mounted vertical pin 93 whose lower end normally projects below the plate, and whose upper end lies beneath the roller 90.
Let us assume that the parts are in the position shown in Fig. 11, with the board moving-upwardly into cooperating ironing engagement with the chest. As the board moves upwardly the stationary part of the neck band former finally engages the pin 93, thereby lifting the same. Upward motion of the pin oscillates the levers 87 and 81 and causes the back yoke'ironers to move inwardly toward the neck band former. l Vhen they engage the neck band of the shirt further upward motion of the neck band former is taken up by the compression spring 85. "When the board finally reaches ironing relation with the chest the back corner 'ironers are in position to iron the back corners of the shirt and act in the same manner as other stationaryportions of the chest. In other words they depress the padding of the board uniformly with depression of the padding at other parts of the board by the stationary portions of the chest. During the final upward movement of the board the neck band former contacts the abutment plate and itself may sink with the padding.
When the heart is retracted downwardly from the chest the parts return to their normal. positions ready for another operation.
