' LAUNDRY APPLIANCE.
Application filed February 23, 1926. Serial No. 89,920.
This invention relates to laundry appliances and has special reference to a laundry truck particularly designed to hold the wash of a single family or individual and to be used in conveying such wash between the various machines in a laundry.
Much trouble has been experienced in handling articles to be washed in public laundry due to such articles being ordinarily treated in bulk, the wash of several families or individuals being sent through the laundry together, and then sorted. This frequently subjects articles from one wash being mixed,
in the finished packages, with the wash of another family or person and thereby irritatesboth customers and results in loss of time and money to the laundry.
One important object of the present in-' vention is to provide an improved laundry truck having a container of, suitablesize to hole a single wash so that the articles received from an individual customer maybe carried as an individual wash through all the necessary treatments.
In the handling of articles in a laundry in finished washing, such articles are folded at the proper times for packaging'and the custom has been heretofore to fold the articles just as soon as they leave the ironing or drying machines and to then transport them to the sorting table or room. This againis objectionable for reasons stated above.
A second object of the present invention is to provide an. improved form of truck having a container for unfinished articles and a support for a packing bag so thatas soon.
as an article taken from the container receives its final treatment it may be folded and at once placed in a bag lined carton carried by the truck and thus mixing of different washes is avoided and sorting is eliminated.
In ironing washed articles of certain classes (ruflled or lace edge garment for instance) the article is first ironed'on a ma- With the above and other'objects in View as w1ll be hereinafter apparent, the invent1on consists in general of certain novel details of construction and combinations of parts hereinafter fully described, illustrated 1n the'accompanying drawings and specifically claimed. i
' In the accompanying drawings like charactersof reference indicate'like parts in the several views, and: p
Figure l'is a perspective view of the complete truck with the container open.
igure 2 is a side elevation thereof with the container closed. I
Figure 3 is a section on the line 3.3 of Figure 2. p
Figure 4 is a sectionon the Figure 2. Figure 5 is a detail perspective of a carton support used herewith. Y
The base of thedevice is formed of an I-shaped metal frame 10 provided at each end of eachcross'member with a swiveling caster wheel 11. Mounted on this base is a rectangular container I2 preferably formed of wood though other suitable material may line 4-4: of
is a batten 13 having a rabbet at each end to provide slots 14 between the side wall of the container and the upper parts of said battens. Resting on the tops of the battens when the container is closed and fitting within the part of said container is a top 15 pro vided with handles 16. This. top is connected to the battens by light chains 17 and it will be seen from Figures 1 and 2 that the top may be turned upwardly into a vertical position and seated in the slots 14 at either side of the container, In this position the top not only is held from accidental closing but acts as a guard to prevent articles from falling over the side on which it is raised, operator being of course at the other s1 e.
Projecting from each end of the stem of the I-shaped frame is an ear 18 wherein is mounted the lower end of a standard 19 which is secured to a respective end wall of the container bya clip 20. These standards are preferably formed of piping and they have their upper ends connected by a rack member 21 also preferably formed of piping. Fixed to the rack member 21 is a key board 23 carrying a tag hook 22 on which the identifying tag for the particular wash carried by the truck is suspended.
Mounted on one of the standards '19 is an angle .bar 23 from the ends of which project parallel arms 24 having upstanding and outwardly curved terminal portions 25. This part of the invention is to support a packing carton C (shown in dotted lines in Figure 2) in which a square bottomed bag is placed to receive the folded articles.
In use one Wash as it ,comeS from the Washer and centrifugal is deposited in the container and the cover closed to retain the proper amount of moisture to enable ironingto be effectually done. At the same time a carton and bag are placed on the carton rack. The truck is then moved to the vicinity of a suitable flat ironing machine at which point the cover is raised and all articles to be ironed on this machine are withdrawn and ironed: Such articles as require no further ironing are now folded and placed in the bag while those requiring hand ironing are draped over the rack bar 21. Preferably the truck is now moved to a finish drier at which place blankets, underwear and other articles notrequiring ironing are thoroughly dried, folded and packed in the ba From here the truck is moved to the hand ironers and the articles on the bar 21 removed, hand ironed and packed. If the wash contains shirts the truck may then be moved to special shirt machines at which place these articles are ironed, folded and packed. The bag is then closed and sealed so that the package is ready for marking or tagging for delivery. Finally the carton and its contents are remove l and the truck returned to the initial station for another wash.
There has thus been provided a simple and efiic'ient device of the kind described and for the purpose specified.
It is obvious that minor changes may be made in the form and construction of the invention without departingfrom the material spirit thereof. It is not, therefore, .de sired to confine the invention to the exact form herein shown and described, but it is desired to include all such as properly come within the scope claimed.
Having thus described the invention, is claimed as new, is: a
In a laundry truck, a container having a batten at each end mounted on the inner side of the respective end of the container a-nd each having a rabbet at each end prowhat viding slots between the sides of the container and the upper parts of the battens, and a top resting when closed on said battens and having its edges selectively receivable in Said slots when open- In testimony whereof I affix my signature.
