COATING MACHINE Filed June 11, 1926 3 Sheets-Sheet Patented Feb. 11, 1930 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE LYNN B. CASE, OF NEW BRUNSWICK, NEW JERSEY, ASSIGNOR TO JOHN WALDRON CORPORATION, OF NEW BRUNSWICK, NEW JERSEY, A CORPORATION OF NEW JERSEY COATING MACHINE Application filed June 11,
The principal object of my invention is to provide an improved machine for coating web materials, including various papers and fabrics where it is desired to treat the surface thereof, for the purpose of filling the pores of the material and for various other reasons well known to those familiar with the art.
One object of my invention is to provide an improved coating table over which the material passes, the table being of arcuate form, 011 which the material being coated is maintained in a taut and even condition, thereby preventing wrinkles in the material while undergoing treatment.
An improved feature of the invention is the provision of a suitable rubber apron for carrying the material to be coated over the coating table.
Another object of the invention is to provide a series of batteries of vibrating brushes, for distributing the coating material over the surface of the web undergoing treatment; and means for operating each brush which will insure full contact of each brush with the web, throughout the entire reciprocation thereof.
Another improved feature of the invention is the means for causing the material being coated to travel over the coating table, and includes a vacuum or suction box cooperating with a perforated belt which engages the web material, causing it to adhere to the perforated belt while passing over the vacuum box, the perforated belt being operatively and synchronously connected to the conveying apron, which is driven at its delivery end from asuitable source of power.
Another object of the invention is to provide a suitable device for applying the coating material to the web material and driving the color applying apparatus by means of the conveying apron, from its receiving end.
Improved means is also provided for controlling the amount of braking friction on the roll of stock in order to maintain the proper amount of tension on the web material as it passes through the coating machine.
I also provide improved means by which the stock to be coated may be quickly and 1926. Serial No. 115,398.
efficiently threaded through the machine, including means for lowering the coating table out of contact with the vibrating brushes whereby the operator may conveniently thread the web material therebetween.
Another feature of the invention is to provide chilled iron rolls over which the web material passes, at the point where the coating material is applied thereto, the purpose of the chilled rolls being to prevent or reduce erodingof the rolls by the action of coating material, which in many instances is of a gritty nature.
Other objects and details of construction of the invention will be more fully disclosed hereinafter, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, of which:
Fig. 1 is a side elevation of my improved coating machine;
Fig. 2 is a longitudinal sectional elevation of one end of the machine, drawn on somewhat of an enlarged scale;
Fig. 3 is a transverse sectional elevation taken along the line 33 of Fig. 1; and
Fig. 4 is a longitudinal sectional elevation of the suction box, and its co-operating perforated belt forming a detail of the inven tion.
Referring to Fig. 1 of the drawing, one of the side frames of the machine is illustrated at 1, it being understood that a similar frame 1* is located at the opposite side of the machine for providing a suitable support for the elements of the machine.
The web material to be coated is placed upon the machine in the form of a roll m, being rotatably mounted on the side frames, and placed under the control of braking mechanism hereinafter more fully described, and whereby the rotation of the roll :20 is retarded. The material passes from the roll m in the form of a web a. under a guide roll 2 rotatably mounted on the side frames 1, 1 to and over a second guide roll 3, also rotatably mounted on the side frames, thereafter passing under a guide roll 4 rotatably mounted in bearings 5, 5 which are adjustably mounted on the side frames 1, 1. The web :2 passes over a guide roll 6 rotatably mounted in the side frames, and under a chilled iron roll 7, provided with trunnions 8 and 9, rotatably mounted insuitable bearings 10 and 11 secured to the side frames 1 and 1 of the machine.
Parallel to and adjacent the roll 7 is a hollow or pipe roll 12 which is provided with trunnions 13 and 14 rotatably mounted in the bearings 10 and 11 respectively. The roll 12 supports one end of an apron 15 which may be composed of rubber or other suitable material, the opposite end of which passes around and is supported by a second pipe roll 16 provided with trunnions 17 mounted in bearings 19, which are adjustably mounted on the side frames 1 and 1*, for the purpose of adjusting thetension of the apron 15.
Upon referring to Fig. 2 of the drawing, it will be noted that the roll 12 occupies a position in a horizontal plane considerably below that of the roll 16.
Intermediate the rolls 12 and 16, I provide my improved coating table 20 over which the apron 15 passes, the web 012 also passing over the table 20 in contact with the upper surface of the apron 15. The web a passes from the apron 15 onto a perforated belt 21, rotatably supported on rollers 23 and 24 suitably mounted on the frames 1 and 1.
Intermediate the rolls 23 and 24, I provide a vacuum box 25 which produces a suction through the perforations of that portion of the belt 21 immediately overlying the vacuum box 25. The web 00 in passing from the apron 15, lies in contact with'the upper run of the belt 21, and by means of the vacuum box 25.
is maintained in substantially rigid contact with the belt 21.
The coating material is applied to the web a2 immediately adjacent the chilled roll 7 by means of a revolving brush 26, the brush 26 receiving a supply of coating material from a tank 27 by means of a color roll 28 which is maintained at a position partially submerged in the material within the tank 27, and in contact with the brush 26.
Initial spreading of the coating material is effected by means of a stationary brush 29 adjustably mounted on the side frames 1 and 1, and immediately overlying one end of the coating table 20 and in contact with the web of material as it passes over the chilled roll 7 and onto the apron 15.
Uniform distribution of the coating material is accomplished by means of a series of batteries of vibrating brushes illustrated at 30, 31 and 32 of Fig. 2. In the present instance, each of the batteries 30, 31 and 32 comprises a series of brushes 35, 36 and 37. Each of the brushes comprises bristles 38 suitably secured in a back 39. The back 39 of each of the brushes is secured to the underside of a transverse bar 40, slidably mounted at each of its ends in a bearing block 41 and 42 respectively. The bearing blocks 41 and 42 are adjustably mounted in brackets 43 and 44 secured to the side frames 1 and 1 respectively. Vertical adjustment of the bearing blocks 41 and 42 within the brackets 43 and 44, is effected by means of jack-screws 45 which are provided with lock nuts 46, as shown in Figs. 2 and 3.
Pivoted at a point 47 to each of the bars 4( is a link 48, Fig. 3, whose opposite end is pivoted, at a point 49, to an arm 50'projecting from an eccentric strap 51 rotatably mounted 011 an eccentric 52. The eccentrics of each battery of brushes are each 'adjustably mounted on a short shaft 53 rotatabl mounted in bearings 54 secured to the side rame 1 of the machine.
Each of the eccentrics '52 comprises a flanged eccentric element 55 secured to the shaft 53 and a double eccentric ring 56 adjustably mounted thereon.

It will be understood that the brush 26 may I be adjusted with respect to the roller 7, and the coating material reservoir 27 with the color roll 28 may be adjusted with respect to the brush 26, on the main frame of the machine. v
In order to maintain a definite and proper working tension on the web of material as it passes through the machine I provide a special mounting for the roll as of the material. The roll is provided with a shaft rotatably mounted in bearings 126 at each end thereof-and each being secured to a beam 127 mounted on oneof the main frames '1, 1 by means of roller bearings 128, 128. A brake drum 129 issecured to one end of the shaft 125 and is operatively engaged and partiallyencircled by a brake band 130, one end of which is adj ustablny secured to the beam 127, the other end thereof being pivoted to one le of a bell crank lever 131 pivoted at 132 to the beam 127. The other leg 133 of the bell crank lever is in the form of a wedge and is adapted to have its angular side engaged by a roller 134 rotatably mounted on the frame 1. The opposite end of the beam 127 is provided with a gear rack 135', meshing with a pinion 136, secured to a shaft 137 rotatably mounted in the frame 1. A plain faced wheel 138 is secured to the shaft 137 and has one end of a strap 139 secured thereto, the strap passing around a pulley 140 and having an adjust-able Weight comprising removable discs 141 suspended on its free end.
