AMOS H. SMITH, OF BROOKLYN, NEW YORK, ASSIGNOR TO AMERICAN BANK NOTE COMPANY, OF NEW YORK, N. Y.,
A CORPORATION OF NEW YORK.
N UMBERING MACHINE.
Application filed June 18, 1922.
T all 207mm it may concern:
Be it known that I, Amos H. SMITH, a citizen of the United States, residing at the borough of Brooklyn, in the city of New York, county of Kings, and State of New York, have invented certain new and uselul Improvements in Numbering Machines, of which the following is a specification, reference being had therein to the accompanying drawings, which form a part thereof.
My invention relates to numbering machines, and more particularly to a mechanism by which the functioning of the machine as to the numbering heads may be controlled.
Numbering machines as heretofore constructed have embodied therein an impression cylinder and a numbering head cylinder, the several numbering heads upon said last named cylinder having been actuated by means of 'a plunger adapted to be depressed as a result of its engagement with the impression cylinder. In such machines the various numbering heads were actuated through the medium of springs acting to restore said plungers to normal after their disengagement from the impression cylinder, the only means for stopping the making of an impression being the interruption of power to the machine.
In a machine embodying my invention, 1 provide a throwofl' mechanism which may be tripped by the operator and which, when so tripped, will instantly and automatically cause movement of the numbering head cylinder out of printing relation to the impression cylinder, and simultaneous movement of the actuating means for the numbering leads out of operative relation thereto, thus preventing ofi'setting upon the blanket of the impression cylinder and the actuation of the wheels of the numbering heads even though the machine may continue to turn for even a partial revolution after the controlling mechanism has been tripped. While the controlling mechanism, whentripped, acts automatically to interrupt the functioning of a machine, manually operative means are employed to reset this mechanism preparatory to the restartin of the machine so as to ensure the desired progressive actuation of the several heads carried by the numbering head cylinder.
Under some conditions it is desired to Serial No. 568,733.
print the same numbers continuously during a run of the machine, to meet which conditiomthe controlling mechanism is so constructed that the actuating means for the numbering heads may be so set as to be inoperative to change the ordinals on the different digit wheels while said heads are still maintained in the printing relation to the impression cylinder.
In the operation of numbering machines, the digit wheels of lower denomination are of necessity moved much more frequently than the wheels of higher denomination, so that in preparing for a run of the machine, it is sometimes, and usually, the practice to operate the machine without making any impression for a sutlicient number of revolutions to ensure each of the characters upon the units and tens wheels, and the lower ordinals upon the hundreds wheels to be thoroughly inked before making the first impression. To meet this condition, the controlling mechanism includes therein characteristics by which the actuating means for the several numbering heads may be brought into operative relation to the. heads while the numbering head cylinder itself is maintained out of the operative relation to the impression cylinder.
The controlling mechanism of my invention is so constructedas to be readily adapted for the various purposes above specitied, although it will be readily understood that the different uses to which the mechanism may be placed are alternative, the operative effect of the mechanism being' determined by the different manner of setting or actuating the mechanism, the only automatic operation of the mechanism being that for simultaneously moving the numbering heads out of the printing relation to the impression cylinder, and simultaneously making the mechanism for operating the several numbering heads, inoperative with relation thereto.
Heretofore in this art, it has been a common practice to provide numbering heads,
the actuating means for which consists of what is known as a comb pawl, and a plunger operatirely connected therewith and projected beyond the printing plane of the characters upon the wheels so that the comb pawl will be set as a result of the depression of this plunger upon its engagement with the impression cylinder, springs being provided for restoring said plunger to its normal position, and causing the rotation of a digit wheel or digit wheels by the return oscillatory movement of said comb pawl. In the type of machine using such heads, the impression cylinder constitutes the actuating means for the heads and when a machine is operating at a high speed, there is always likelihood of the breakage of the spring or springs of some numbering head causing a failure of the head to function and a resultant wastage of printed sheets.
In a numbering machine embodying my invention, the digit wheels are progressively actuated through a mechanism entirely independent of the impression cylinder, which mechanism or actuating means may be brought into or out of the operative relation to the numbering heads at the will of the operator. The positive actuation of the numbering heads avoids any possibility of a failure of any head to function as a result of a disarrangement of its parts.
The invention consists in the novel features of construction and combination of parts hereinafter set forth and described, and more particularly pointed out in the claims hereto appended.
Referring to the drawings,
Fig. 1 is a side view of a controlling mechanism for a numbering machine embodying my invention;
Fig. 2 is an end view thereof;
Fig. 3 is a detail view of the mechanism for actuating the various numbering heads, and the actuating means therefor; and
Fig. 1- is a perspective View of a plurality of impact members, a portion of the shaft carrying said members, and the actuating crank for said shaft.
Like numerals refer to like parts throughout the several views.
In the embodiment of my invention shown in the drawings, I have indicated conventionally at the impression cylinder of a numberin machine, and at 11 a numbering head cylinder adapted to have secured thereto in the usual or any desired manner, a plurality of progressively operative numbering heads 12. The above mechanisms, considered broadly, are old and well known in this art, my invention relating more particularly to the controlling mechanism for the cylinder 11 and the actuating means for the numbering heads 12.
The shaft of the cylinder 11 is mounted in eccentric bushings 13 each having a crank arm 14. by means of which it may be turned in its bearing boss so as to impart movement to the cylinder 11 toward or from the cylinder 10.
Mounted in the frame of the machine, is a shaft 15, the axis of which is parallel with that of the cylinder 11, which shaft has secured thereto a plurality of striker arms 16 each having an anti-friction roller 17 adapted to be moved into and out of the path of movement of the actuating member 18 of the various numbering heads. A. plurality of such arms 16 are used because it is customary to employ a plurality .of numbering heads positioned side by side upon the cylinder 11 in a sequence of groups, the dif ferent groups being spaced circumferentially about said cylinder. By providing means acting simultaneously to turn the eccentric bushings 13 and the shaft 15, the rollers 17 may be moved out of the engaging relation with the actuating members 18 of. the numbering heads, at the same time that the cylinder 11 is moved away from the cylinder 10, thus simultaneously stopping the making of impressions by the machine, and the progressive actuation of the various numbering heads, even though the cylinder 11 may continue to turn after said shaft and said eccentric has been thus actuated.
The actuating means co-operating with the crank arms .14 of the eccentric bushings 13, consists of a crank disk 19 mounted adjacent the lower portion of the machine, and a link 20 pivotally connected with said crank arm and said crank disk, and acted upon by a spring 21 which is seated between an enlarged head 22 of said link, and a bracket upon the frame of the machine. This spring is under tension, and has a normal tendency to turn the bushings 13 by an up ward movement of the link operative upon each bushing, so that by controlling the disk 19, the actuation of said eccentrics may be ,-ontrolled. The disk 19 is carried by a shaft and this disk 19 and the parts 13, 1-1 and 26 to are duplicated upon opposite sides of the machine, since it is essential that the cylinder 11 be moved away from the cylinder 16 by a parallel movement and through power applied upon opposite sides of the machine.
lr'iounted adjacent the cylinder 11 with its axis parallel thereto is a stud 25 having keyed thereto a disk 26 having a cam slot 27 therein adapted to engage a pin 28 upon a crank shaft 29 carried by the shaft 15. The pitch of said cam slot is such that with an oscillatory movement of the disk 26, the striker members 17 may be moved into or out of the path of movement of the members 18 of the respective numbering heads, ac cording to the direction of movement of the disk. Said cam slot 27 in addition to im parting movement to the shaft 15 with the movement of said disk 26, also serves to hold said shaft against movement while the striker members 17 are in the operative relation to the members 18 of the various numbering heads.
The disk 26 is provided with a crank pin 30 adapted to be operativcly engaged by a link 31, the other end of which linkis pivotthe various numbering heads, and offsetting upon the blanket of the impression cylinder, may be prevented by merely depressing the treadle 46 until it engages the stop 43, the movement of the arm 49 rocking the locking dog 43 and disengaging it from the latch tooth 42 of the disk 19. Instantly with this disengagement, the spring 21. will simultaneously turn the eccentrics 13 and the disks 19, thus moving the cylinder 11 away from the cylinder 10 and moving the striker members 17 out of the path of the various numbering heads in a manner which will now be described.
As the disk 19 turns under the control of the spring 21 and link 20, the link 31 will. be raised, and since the pin is in the recess 32 thereof, the disk 26 will receive a partial rotation, thus causing an oscillatory movement of the shaft 15 as aresult of the action of the cam slot 27 upon the pin 28. This movement of the shaft 15 will result in the positioning of each of the striker members 17 out of the path of movement of the actuating members 18 of the various numbering heads so that even though the application of power to the machine is continued, there will'be no progressive actuation of the numbering heads after the members 17 have been once so moved out of the operative relation to their members 18.
As the disk 26 turns, it will impart similar movement to the disk 37 through the pin 38 seated in the slot 39 of said disk 37. The stop pin 36 by reason of its having a slightly greater lateral component of movement than the pin 30, may have a slight tendency to move the link 31 with relation to said pin 30, although the extension 35 of said link will limit this movement to so slight a distance as to not at all interfere with the action of the link 31 upon said disk 26.
When it is desired to restore the members 17 to their operative relation as to the members 18 of the numbering heads 12, it is merely necessary for the operator to impart a return rotative movement to the disk 19 by means of the handle thereof, the locking dog 43 automatically dropping into the locked position when the head thereof is in the proper relation to the tooth 42.
The spring 41 it will be readily understood, permits the movement of of the link 31 under the control of the pin 36 while preventing disengagement of the pin 30 from the recess 32.
In the event that it is desired to maintain the striker members 17 out of the operative relation to the members 18 of the various numbering heads, the disk 26 may be turned by means of the handle 40 thereof, to the left Fig. 1, the initial turning movement of said disk 37 resulting in the pin 36 disengaging the recess 32 in the link 31, from the pin 30, the slot 39 permitting movement of the disk 37 with relation to the pin 38 sufliciently to permit such disengagement, whereupon the end of said slot 39 engages the pin 38. A continued movement of the disk 37 will thus turn the disk 26 in the same manner, and with the same result as follows the turning of the disk 26 by the link 31. During this movement the pin 36 will pass above the extension 35 so that tially simultaneously with the pin 30 ap proaching the engaging relation with the recess 32.
So long as the striker members 17 are set as described through the medium of the disk 37, the cylinders 10 and 11 will remain in the printing relation and the same num bers or sequence ofnumbers will be printed upon each sheet fed to the cylinder 10.
If it be desired to progressively actuate the various numbering heads 12 without making an impression therewith, as when pre-inking the digit wheels of lower denomination preparatory to a run, it is merely necessary for the operator to depress the treadle 46, thus simultaneously actuating the eccentrics 13 and the shaft 15 to move the cylinder 11 out of the printing relation to the cylinder 10 and the striker members 17 out of the operative relation to the members 18 upon the various numbering heads. Thereafter the handle 40 may be used to turn the disk 37 to the right Fig. 1, the engagement of. the right hand end of the slot 39 with the stud 38 causing a return movement of the disk 26, it being necessary, however, to move the link 31 by hand so as to disengage the recess 32 and the stud 30 to permit this return movement of said disk 26. When this setting is completed, the relation of parts aside from the link 31 will be as shown in Fig. 1 of the drawings, and thereafter the press may be actuated under its own power without oifsetting upon the blanket of the cylinder 10, the digit wheels of lower denomination being progressively actuated.
After the treadle 46 has been tripped to simultaneously move the cylinder 11 out of the printing relation and the striker members 17 out of the operative relation to the members 18 of the various numbering heads, it will be necessary for the operator, before restarting the machine, to see that the various numbering heads are so positioned that when the striker members are returned to their normal operative position, they will act upon the proper numbering head to ensure consecutive numbering.
When the machine is set for inkingpurposes, it will be readily understood that ally c set :1 v'ith'the cent the v 20 and under t L g 21 when the disk i9 is 4 at. which the linl: 's pivoted to sai i9 s shorter the. n that at which the l o. since the rotative I d sk 26 is L disl :70 is pivoted ther inns aired oi the control too that required o't tl e e The upper end oi the he 01 is provided 32 pted to receive crank being a slot noon opposite sides cess, the upper tension of said slot :licated and the lower ex ension meet 1 i iere hin in at 34. The purpose of said slots is to permit the hand actuation of the shaft through the disk independently ot the crank disk l and the link ill. The up n ion 33 pro led for the purpose pernntt 1g the striker members 1'? to he main ained out of the path of movement of the memliers 18 of the various uumherng wheels, even though the cylinder 11 he in printing relation to the cylinder 10, The lower extensi n Se'lof the slot is provided to permit the cccentrii': 13 to be actuated to move the c linder 17., out of the pri up; relation to the cylinder while still maintaining the striker member 17 in operative relation to the members 18 of. the various numbering heads.
To ensure the normal engagement of tl e recess 32 with the pin 30, ll provide means for normally forcing the link 31 toward the stud 25, thus ensuring the constant engagement 01'? said link with said pin when the machine is set for the automatic actuation of the striker member 1?, but permitting that lateral movement 01 the link 31 incidental to the upward movement oi the pin in an arcuate path. The link 31 is provided with an extension shown at which is adapted to engage a stop pin 36 carried by disk 37 mounted upon the stud Said disk 3? is capable oi movement with the disk 26 in either direction under the control oi said disk and the link 31, or to impart mov ment to said disk 28 independently ot the link 31.
The extension is provided with opposite inclined surtaces as shown, to con'ipensate tor the difference in the lateral component of movement between the pin 30 and the stop pin 36, with the rotation of the disk 26. hen it is desired to move the pin 30 within the upper extension oi": the slot in the link 31, the pin 36 is relied upon move the link 31 su'ttlcientlv to disengage the recess 32 in said link and the stud. 30, which is essential to permit movement of: the disk 26 independently ot the link 31 and the disk 19. the disk 37 is connected with the disk 26 by a slot and pin connection 38 and S9, permitt g the realso permitting the a t ,nn the disk 3? to provided with crank handle 41-0 o means of which it may be actuated hp: hand to give o desired set to the Sill'llifl memoers 1i".

"The spring 21 acting between the enlarge ment 2?.) and the shoulder 23 has sul'lficient tension to rotate the eccentric bushing an d at the same time impart a, rotative movement to the disk 1.9.
Thisdisk is provided with a single latch tooth 4-2 adapted to he engaged by a locking dog til the shaft of which carries a crank arm 44:: in the path of movement of the crank arm 45 upon the foot treadle 46. At 47 I have indicated a stop to limit the upward movement ot the dog 43 and at 48 a stop for limiting the downward movement ot the treadle 4:6, which treadle is acted upon by the spring 49.
The disk 19 is provided with a crank handle 50 for the resetting of the control mechanism through said disk 19.
.lt' desired 1 may provide a magnet 51 adaeent the head of the dog 43, which magnet is included in electrical circuit having there in a switch adjacent the feeding shelf of the machine, not shown.
The operation of the herein described mechanism is substantially as follows Under normal working conditions, the links 20 and 3 will be in their lowermost position with the pin 30 engaged in the recess 3 ot the link 31. When the parts are so positioned, the shaft 15 will be held by the disk and the pin 28 in the slot 2? with the arms 16 and the striker members or rollers 17 carried therelo g in the path of movement ot the actuating members 18 of the several numbering heads 12 upon the cylinder 11. The eccentrics 13 under this condition. will maintain the numbering heads 12 upon the cylinder 11 in the printing; relation to the impression cylinder 10.
As the heads 1.2 of each group pass the striker members 17 operative thereon respectively, the digit wheels in said heads will be progressivelyactuated as a result of the tunctioning ot the mechanisms of the head by the engagement of the members 17 by the striker member So long as the parts are in the position shown in Fig. 1 of the drawings, there will he an iminterruptod and progressive numbering of the sheets fed to the cvlinder 10. If, however, the operator should fail to feed a sheet with. any revolution. of the cylinder 10, the continued progressive actuation of after the various digit wheels have been inked, it is necessary for the operator to set the different digit Wheels so as to secure the desired consecutive numbering.
The control mechanism of the numbering machine of my invention is designed primarily to prevent skipping of numbers as a result of the actuation of the various numbering heads when a sheet is not fed to the impression cylinder, since such a mishap would require resetting of the various numbering heads while with the throw-off mechanism described, it would merely require the actuation of the machine before the disk 19 is actuated to reset the striker members 17 until the proper numbering head is in the operative relation to said striker members.
It will be observed that by using means independent of the impression cylinder 10 for actuating the various numbering heads, the relation of the cylinders 10 and 11, so far as this actuation of the numbering heads is concerned, is immaterial, thus making it possible to produce a numbering machine having the characteristics above referred to.
It will also be observed that by using numbering heads wherein the actuating members 18 are below the printing plane of the digit wheels, and actuating means therefor which are entirely independent of the impression cylinder, the digit wheels of the various numbering heads may be positively actuated as distinguished from a positive setting and a spring actuation thereof.
It is not'my intention to limit the invention to the precise details of construction shown in the drawings, it being apparent that such may be varied without departing from the spirit and scope of my invention. I employ disks throughout merely to simplify the manufacture of the machine, these disks being merely in the nature of separate cranks in the functioning of the machine.
