SPEED SYNCHRONIZATION OF INTERMITTE'NTLY OPERATED MACHINES Filed July 5. 1929 2 Sheets-Sheet 2 Inventor: mglas morqa'n Att oRTzeg Patented Feb. 23, 1932 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE MYLES MORGAN, OF WORCESTER, MASSACHUSETTS, ASSIGNOR TO MORGAI mISTRUC- TION COMPANY, OF WORCESTER, MASSACHUSETTS, A CORPORATION OF MASSA- CHUSETTS SPEED SYNCHRONIZATIO'N OF INTERMITTENTLY-OPERATED MACHINES Application filed July 5, 1929. Serial No. 376,259.
I he present invention, broadly considered, resldes in a novel method and apparatus by which to put into action, from a condition of idleness or stoppage, any machine or the like whose working occurs intermittently or at intervals, and whose drive, for the entire duration of any working period, must be substantially synchronized with some other means or mechanism in practically continuous operation,for example, a means used to secure delivery of stock or material to such intermittently-worked machine or machines.
A particular application of the invention, which is herein. shown for illustrative purposes is in the driving of reels of the revolving or so-called pouring type, which are used for the coiling of hot metal rods, or other similiar elongated products delivered at high spee It is necessary, becomes filled, to
as soon as one of these reels switch the delivery of the stock to another adjacent reel, in order to take care of the substantially continuous delivery of said stock by the mill. This mode of operation requires the unfilled reel, in advance of any diversion of the stock thereto, to be started up from a non-revolving condition and accelerated to a-speed which corresponds to the high delivery speed of the stock; only in this way can the reeling be properly started, and only by maintaining a close synchronization between reel speed and stock delivery speed throughout the coiling operation, can a satisfactory coil be made.
The present invention insures the establishment and maintenance of such synchronization, by an arrangement of apparatus which permits the selected reel or other machine, in advance of its actual working, to be started independently, and accelerated until it is running in synchronism with the constantly-operated driving means which. in the case of reels, procures the delivery of the stock to be coiled thereon; thereafter, for the entire duration of the working period of the driven machine, such synchronism is maintained, as by automatically shifting the drive of said machine so started and accelerated to said constantly-operated driving means, so that, in the case for example of a reel, the coiling operaof my invention, and showing its application to a plurality of revoluble reels in operative relation to the finishing end of a rod mill, in conjunctionwith the accelerating and synchronizing devices for one of said reels.
Fig. 2 is a diagrammatic view of the actelerating and synchronizing apparatus of Fig. 1, and showing the condition of the parts when a reel is being accelerated.
Fig. 3 is a diagrammatic view similar to Fig. 2, and illustrating another condition of the parts, which is automatically established when the reel has been accelerated up to a speed corresponding to the stock-delivery speed.
Like reference characters refer to like parts in the different figures.
Referring first to Fig. 1, the finishing rolls of a rod mill are indicated at 1, the rolls being driven from a shaft 2 here shown as having a gear connection 3 with a driving motor or other prime mover 4. From the rolls 1, the elongated material 5, in the form of rods, bars or the like, passes to a suitable switch indicated diagrammatically at 6, which is selectively operable to direct the moving material through suitable reel delivery pipes 7, 7 to any one of a plurality of revoluble reels 8, 8, here shown as two in number. Each reel 8 is here shown as of the usual pouring type, with a rotatable table 9 which provides two series of concentric pins 10 and 11 between which the moving stock 5 is delivered from the pipe 7. Each reel table 9 is driven from a shaft 12 through suitable gearing 13.
According to my invention, the drive of shaft '12, when the material 5 is being coiled on the reel, is taken from the roll shaft 2, so as to maintain the reel speed in synchronism with the stock delivery speed, and to this end I have shown in alinement with the shaft 12 a constantly-rotating drive shaft 14 which is connected by means of countershafts 15, 15 and gearing 16, 16 with the shaft 2,the gearing 13, 16, 16 being so proportioned that when the alined shafts 12 and 14 are clutched together, as hereinafter described, the surface speed of reel table 9, between the pins 10 and 11, will correspond to the delivery speed of the stock 5.
Said stock delivery speed is so high, that it manifestly would be impractical, with a reel 8 at rest (following its stoppage for the removal of a coil therefrom) to clutch together the two alined shafts 12 and 14, the one stationary and the other rotating at high speed. Accordingly, to meet the requirement that each reel 8, in advance of any passage of the stock thereto, must be started up from rest and accelerated to the delivery speed of said stock, this invention contemplates an improved method and arrangement of apparatus whereby, at the will of an operator, any reel 8 may be started up and accelerated by means of an independent prime mover, until its shaft 12 reaches the speed of the rotating shaft 14, and then when the shafts 12 and 14 are in exact synchronism, a magnetic'clutch 17 operates automatically to connect said shafts 12 and 14, so that the coiling of material on said reel can be inaugurated.
For thus starting and accelerating each reel, independently of its mill-driven shaft 14, a separate prime mover 18, preferably in the form of an electric. motor of the direct current type is provided; said motor 18 has, as here shown, azfield winding 19 connected in shunt across supply mains 20 adapted to be energized from a suitable source 21 of electrical energy, through the closing of a knife switch 22. An adjustable rheostat 23 of the usual type is connected in the circuit of the field 19 whereby the speed of the motor 18 may be varied, for a purpose to be hereinafter described. The shaft of the accelerating Inotor 18 is connected by gearing 24 to the reel shaft 12 so that when the motor 18 is connected to the source 21, the reel will be accelerated from rest and brought up to a speed determined by the operating speed of the motor 18 for a given setting of its field rheostat 23.
One terminal of the armature 25 of the motor 18 is connected in parallel to the separate stationary contacts 26a and 27 of a control switch A providing a handle 28 shown in the 0d position in Fig. 1. The other terminal of the motor armature 25 is connected in parallel to a third switch contact 26 and to one of a pair of spaced contacts 29 of a relay B which provides a pivoted armature 3O carrying a contact arm 31 which normally bridges the gap between the contacts 29. The other Contact 29 is connected to a stationary contact 32 forming part ofthe switch A, and,
when the switch arm 28 is thrown fromthe off position of Fig. 1 to the on position of Fig. 2, contact plates 33 and 34 carried by the switch arm 28 are adapted to connect the contacts 27 and 32, respectively, to the supply mains 20, thereby causing current to be sup plied to the armature 25 of the motor 18, as indicated by the heavy circuit lines and arrows in Fig. 2. When this occurs, the motor 18 starts, and with it, through gearing 24, the associated reel 8, and as said motor picks up speed, the reel shaft 12 accelerates, until it finally attains a speed equal to or slightly above that of the shaft 14, whereupon, as hereinafter described, the clutch 17 is automatically thrown in to establish a driving connection between shafts 12 and 14, and to disconnect the reel accelerating motor 18 from the supply mains 20.
For purposes of illustration, the clutch 17 which is interposed between the reel shaft 12 and the mill driven shaft 14, is shown as providing a winding 35 carried by one clutch element which when energized is adapted to attract the other clutch element and establish a driving'connection between the shafts 12 and 14. Current is adapted to'be supplied to the winding '35 through slip rings 36, one of which is connected to a contact37 adapted to be engaged by the segment 34 of the switc arm 28 when the latter is moved to the on position to connect one slip ring 36 to the positive side of the source 21. The other. slip ring 36 is connected to one of a pair of spaced contacts 38 forming part of the relay B, the contacts 38 being separated when the relay contact arm 31 is in engagement with the contacts 29 controlling the circuit to the reel motor 18. The other relay contact 38 is connectcd to a stationary contact 39 of the control switch that is engaged by the switch segment 33 when the arm 28 is in the on position so as to connect the relay contact 38 to the minus side of the source 21. Therefore, when the motor 18 is operating through the circuit shown in Fig. 2, the circuit of the magnetic clutch winding 35 is open at the gap between the contacts38 of the relay B, the functioning of which to cause automatic operation of the clutch 17 will next be described.
The armature 30 of the relay B projects equally on opposite sides of its pivot 30a and these portions of the armature 30 are under the influence of coils 40 and 41 symmetrically disposed with respect to the pivot 30a. The terminals'of the right hand coil 40 are connected to the terminals of what is commonly known as a tachometer generator 42, the shaft of which is connected to the mill driven shaft 14 through gearing 43. The other coil 41 of the relay B is connected to the terminals of a second tachometer generator 44, the shaft of which is connected to the reel shaft 12 through gearing 45 having exactly the same ratio as the gearing 43 of generator 42. The
tachometer generators 42 and 44 are exact duplicates, both electrically and mechanically, and the field windings 42a and 44a of these generators are connected in seriesacross a constant voltage source represented by the mains 46. Consequently, when the reel shaft 12 and the mill shaft 14 are separately driven, the generators 44 and 42 will energize the relay coils 41 and 40, respectively, in direct proportion to the speeds of the shafts 12 and 14, and should the shaft 12 be driven at the same speed as the shaft 14, it necessarily follows that the relay coil 41 will have exactly the same excitation as the coil 40. It is also apparent that should the shaft 14 be driven from the mill motor 4 when the motor 18 is not driving the shaft 12, the separate excitation of the relay coil 40 by the generator 42 will hold the armature 30 of the relay B in the position shown in Fig. 1, in which position the relay contact arm 31 bridges the gap between the spaced stationary contacts 29 in the circuit of the motor 18. This is the normal position of the armature 30 of relay when the reel 8 under consideration is out of operation and the mill is delivering stock to another reel.
As previously pointed out, when the arm 28 of the control switch-A is in the off position, as shown in Fig. 1, there is a break in the circuit of the motor 18 between the switch contact 32 and the positive supply main and there also is a break in the energizing circuit of the clutch 17 between one of the contacts 38 of the relay B which is connected to the switch contact 39 and the negative supply main 20. Therefore, with the handle 28 in the off position neither the motor 18 nor the clutch 17 can be energized. In the off position of the switch A however, the terminals of the motor armature areconnected across a resistance 47 by the engagement of the switch contact segments 33 and 34 with stationary contacts 48 and 49 between which the resistance 47 is connected and with contacts 26 and 26a connected to the armature 25. In other words, with the switch arm 28 in the off position the armature of the motor 18 is connected directly across a resistance, so that any rotation of the shaft of motor 18 by reason of its connection with the reel shaft 12 will result in a regenerative braking effect, the purpose of which will be hereinafter described.
The control switch A is preferably located at a point adjacent to the reels 8, as in an operators pulpit indicated diagrammatically by the dot and dash lines in Fig. 1, and there is also mounted in the operators pulpit the adjustable rheostat 23 for the field 19 of the reel motor 18. The various settings of this rheostat 23 to obtain different speeds of the motor 18 are so calibrated that the op erator is able to determine for a given setting of the rheostat at just what speed the determine the speed at which the reel motor 18 should be driven in order to accelerate the reel table shaft 12 to the speed at which the shaft 14 will be driven for a given speed of the mill motor 4.
Inorder to coil a rod on a given reel, the operator first observes the speed at which the mill motor 4 is operating and then sets the rheostat 23 of the motor 18 of the reel selected for forming the next coil to give the proper reel'motor speed. The operator then throws the handle 28 of the switch A to the on position, as indicated in Fig. 2, whereupon the circuit of the motor 18 is completed as indicated by the heavy circuit lines and arrows. The motor 18 thereupon accelerates the reel shaft 12 and when the speed of the shaft 12 attains a speed equal to or slightly more than that of the shaft 14 then being driven from the mill motor 4, the excitations of the relay coils 40 and 41 by the tachometer generators 42 and 44 have practically the same value. When this condition is attained, the armature of the relay B is subjected to a sufficient pull on the left hand side of its pivot 30a to cause the armature to assume a reverse position from that shown in Fig. 2, as shown in Fig. 3, thereby causing the contact arm 31 to leave the contacts 29- and to bridge the gap between the contacts 38. When this occurs, the motor- 18 is dis connected from the supply mains 20, while the circuit of the winding of the magnetic clutch 17 is completed, as indicated by the heavy circuit lines and arrows in Fig. 3. As a result, the reel shaft 12 nows'becomes clutched to the driving shaft 14, and is driven from the mill motor 4, thereby. insuring that the surface speed of the reel table 9 between the pins 10 and 11 will exactly correspond to the delivery speed of the stock when the operator directs the next length of material to the selected reel by means of the switch 6. This automatic. synchronization of a selected reel leaves the operator free to observe the actual formation or removal of a coil on another reel, and his entire attention can be concentrated upon operation of the rod switch 6 at the proper time, with absolute assurance that the, selected reel has already been accelerated to the proper coiling speed, and is being driven in when the material arrives at the reel.
When the coiling of a given length of the material on the selected reel is completed, the operator throws the control switch arm 28 for this particular reel to the off position. In the meantime, before the coiling synchronism with the mill on the above described reel is completed, he
operations as described above with respect to another similarly-equipped and driven reel 8, to start and speed up the latter, in readi- "ness for diversion to it of the closely-following next length of material delivered by the mill. I
When its control handle 28 is thrown to the off position, as shown in Fig. 1, the first reel table 8 with the complete coil thereon is quickly brought to rest by the regenerative braking effect which results from the connections thereupon established. As previously pointed out, moving the arm 28 to the off position disconnects the winding 35 of the magnetic clutch from the supply mains thereby breaking the coupling between the reel shaft 12 and the mill driven shaft 14, and at the same time connecting the resistance 47 directly across the terminals of the armature of the reel motor 18. Consequently, continued rotation of this filled reel 8 causes its motor 18 to act as a generator, and since the resistance 47 is connected directly across the armature 25, a braking eifect will he applied to the shaft 12 which will bring the reel table 8 quickly to rest. The completed coil may then be removed from the reel by any suitable means, leaving the reel in readiness for forming another coil when its control handle 28 is again moved to the on position.
