PRESS FOR COMMUTATOR RINGS AND THE LIKE Filed April 17, 1924 2 Sheets-Sheet 2 Patented May 3, 1932 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE EDWARD COOPER, OF NEWTON, MASSACHUSETTS, ASSIGNOR TO NEW ENGLAND MIGA. 00., OF WALTI-IAM, MASSACHUSETTS, A CORPORATION OF MASSACHUSETTS PRESS FOR COMMUTA'IOR RINGS AND THE LIKE Application filed April 17,

This invention relates to apparatus for forming annular members from sheet material.

The object of the invention is to provide novel and improved apparatus of the character specified by which the annular membcrs may be economically and rapidly pro duced. A further object oi the invention is to provide novel and etlicieut apparatus for forming and molding commutator rings.

lVith these objects in view, the invention consists in the apparatus and the combina tions and arrangements of parts hereinatter described and particularly defined in the claims at the end of this specification.

In the drawings illustrating the preferred embodiment of the invention,

Fig. 1 is a sectional view of a suflicient poi-ion of the apparatus to enable the invention to be understood;

Fig. 2 is a perspective of a commutator ring;

Fig. 3 is a view similar to Fig. 1, showing the parts of the apparatus in a different position of operation;

' t a sectional detail on the line 4-l of El; and

Fig. 5 is a detail in plan to be referred to.

'lhi apparatus illustrated in the drawings is d "'gned to form commutator rings of the construction illustrated in F ig. 2 from lamihated mica in sheet form, although it to he understood that viewed in the broader aspects of the invention, the different features thereof may be embodied in apparatus for forming other annular members.

Referring to the drawings, and 12 represent respectively the movable and stationary members of a punch press indicated by the general reference 13, and which in general may be of any usual or preferred l'fiUTlEtl'HCtlOll. preferably of the single cycle type in which the movable member 10 of the comprises a reciprocatory ram intermittently actuated from a main crank shaft l t. The reciprocatiens of the ram 10 may and preterably will be initiated at each cycle in the usual manner by a foot control clutch {not shown).

The stationary member 12 of the press is 1924. Serial No. 707,303.

herein shown as provided with a recessed die or cup-shaped mold 15, secured to a block 16, aifixed in and carried by a stationary portion 17 of the press frame. The sheet material 11, such as laminated mica in sheet form, from which the annular members are to be produced, is laid upon a supporting plate 18 to extend over the mouth of the cup-shaped mold preparatory to the descent of a complementary mold ng element or projecting die 20 carried by the movable member 10 of the press. The supporting plate 1.8 is herein shown as mounted upon the upper ends of rods 22 which extend through holes in the blocl: 16 and have springs interposed be tween a shoulder 23 thereon and an abutment plate 24L secured to the block 16, for yieldingly maintaining the plate 18 at the level of the upper surface of the cup-shaped mold 15,

and for permitting depression of the plate 18 during the molding of the annular members when the movable member 10 of the press descends, as will be described.

For the production of insulating rings of the shape illustrated in Fig. 2 having an annular channel or groove and which are particularly designed for Ford motor commutators, the bottom of the cup-shaped mold 15 is arranged to taper or incline upwardly towards the center of the mold, and as herein shown, this tapered or inclined portion 25 of the mold is formed upon the upper surface of a receding die or plunger 26, slidably mounted within the cup-shaped mold 15 and capable of movement from the position shown in Fig. 3 to that shown in Fig. 1.

In forming commutator rings of the shape and construction illustrated in Fig. 2 from a blank or sheet of moldable material, proiision is made for dieing out the central por tion of the molded ring to form the opening 27 in the ring, and also for trimming the ring size. For this purpose, as herein shown, the plunger 26 is hollow, providing a cutting edge 29 with. which cooperates a cylindrical cutting member or die 30 carried by the movable member 10 of the press to be capable of descent with the movable member into the position illustrated in Fig. 3. The cooperation of the cylindrical cutting die 30 with the cutting edge 29 upon the plunger 26 operates as will be apparent from an inspection of Fig. 3, to die out a circular disk from the center of the molded ring to thus form the opening 27 as shown in Fig. 2. The disk of material died out in this manner is permitted to fall clownwardly through the hollow plunger 26 and through an aligned opening 32 in the block 16. As herein shown, the molding member or projecting die 20 comprises a hollow cylinder surrounding the cutting die 30 and having its annular molding surface 33 tapered or inclined complementary to the inclined or tapered surface 25 upon the upper end of the plunger 26. The molding member 20 is screwed or otherwise secured to the cross web 34 of a housing 35 secured to the movable member 10 of the press and comprising a part thereof. In order that the finished commutator ring may be of a predetermined size, provision is preferably made for first cutting from the blank of sheet material, a disk slightly larger than is required to form the finished ring, and thereafter accurately trimming such disk to size. For this purpose, as herein shown, an outer tubular cutting die 40 is aflixed in the lower portion of the housing 35 as illustrated in Fig. 1, and is of such size as to cooperate with the outer edge 42 of the circumferential ledge of the cup-shaped mold so that when the movable member 10 of the press descends into the position illustrated in Fig. 3, the outer cutting die 40 cooperating with the cutting edge 42 upon the mold 15 serves to cut the sheet material into disk form of approximate size. Between the outer cutting die 40 and the projecting die 20, an auxiliary trimming member 45 is provided herein shown as comprising a cylindrical sleeve relatively movable on the outer surface of the projecting die. The lower portion of the auxiliary trimming member 45 is cut away to form a relatively narrow wall 46 having a blunt end, the outer lower edge 47 of which comprises a cutting edge which is adapted to cooperate with the inner edge 50 of the circumferential ledge of the mold 15 so that when the parts of the apparatus move into the position illustrated in Fig. 3, the cutting edges 47, 50, cooperate to trim the waste material and cut the ring to exact size. During the downward stroke of the movable member 10 of the press, the auxiliary triming member 45 is engaged by the cross web 34 of the housing so that the parts move as a unit to perform this cutting operation.

In the operation of the apparatus thus far described, the sheet material 11 from which the ring or annular member is to be formed. is fed by hand or otherwise into a position over the hollow or cup-shaped mold 15 resting upon the supporting plate 18 in the manner illustrated in Fig. 1. The material is fed to this position at a time in the cycle of operation of the machine when the movable member 10 is in its raised position. Then the operator depresses the controlling clutch in the usual manner to cause the movable member 10 to be depressed, and as the parts carried thereby descend into the position illustrated in Fig. 3, the sheet material is cut to an approximate size by the cooperation of the cutting edges on the cutting die 40 and the outer edge 42 of the cup-shaped mold 15, and then as the parts continue to descend, the disk thus formed is forced down into the mold by the molding member 20, the marginal portion of the disk being bent into cylindrical shape and forming an annular shaped portion extending around the periphery of the cylindrical member 20 and between it and the internal wall of the mold 15. As the parts descend, the disk of material forming the bottom of the annular shaped portion is engaged between the lower surface 33 of the molding element 20 and the upper surface 25 of the hollow plunger 26, the latter having been held by the friction of the parts in the position illustrated in Fig. 1 from the previous cycle of operation, and as the parts continue to descend the hollow plunger 26 is forced down by the molding element 20 with the partially molded ring still held between the upper and lower surfaces of the plunger and molding element respectively. During this movement, the cutting edge 47 upon the auxiliary trimming member 45 passes the cutting edge 50 on the upper end of the mold 15, thus trimming the waste material from the rim of the annular portion and reducing the ring to finished size (see Fig. 3). After the ring has been thus trimmed to size by the trimmer 45, the parts and the trimmed ring continue to be moved downwardly into the mold until the hollow plunger 26 seats upon the surface 31. The movement of the movable member 10 of the press is designed to cause the molding element 20 and associated parts carried by the movable member 10, to move downwardly a short distance after the hollow plunger 26 is seated upon the surface 31, to thereby compress and mold the disk of material held between the upper and lower surfaces of the plunger 26 and molding element 20, respectively, and also to enable the cutting die 30 to die out the central portion of said disk to form the opening 27 in the finished ring. During this movement of the parts the material comprising the annular wall 55 (Fig. 2) of the ring is compressed by the downward movement of the blunt end of the narrow wall 46 of the trimmer 45 between the outer surface of the molding element 20 and the internal wall of the mold 15, and is thus molded to exact height. It will be understood that suitable clearances may be provided to accommodate the cutter dies to the character and thickness of the sheet material 11.

After the commutator ring has thus been formed, the movable member 10 oil the press rises and provision is made for either ejecting the ring from the bottom of the cup shaped mold 15, or for lifting it to a position from which it may be readily removed by the operator, and also in the event that the linished ring has adhered to the projecting die 20, for stripping the ring therefrom. For these purposes, provision is made for mechanically raising the plunger 26 into the position illustrated in F 1 through a pos tively timed crank 30 upon the main cam snaft let, operating throu 'h the connecting rod and nut 63 upon the lower end th oscillate alever arm G-l loosely and piw mounted upon a pin upon a hug (36 secured to the machine frame, to raise a contact plate 6? and through the rods (38 secured thereto, to lift the plunger 26 as will be apparent from inspection of Fig. l. The crunlr (it) is prefer ably timed with relation to the normal movement of the n'iovablo member 10 to permit the plunger 26 to be moved downwardly b; projecting die 20, as above described. l hen the plunger 26 is raised in the manner described, any molded ring which may have adhered to the bottom of the cup-shaped mold 15 is raised into a position from which it may be readily removed from the mold by an operator. In the event that the ring has adhered to the projecting die 20, prov'sion is made for depressing the auxiliary trimmer l5, thus causing the blunt end of the narrow "Wall 46 of the trimmer to strip the ring from the projecting die 20. F or this purpose, the trimmer L5 is carried by bolts secured to the flange Tl of a head T2 aml which are slidahly extended tlni'ough holes in the cross web of the housing 35. The head 72 is centrally bored to receive an expansion sprin 73 interposed between it and the cross web S t and which operates to normally raise the head and conseqiumtly the trimmer 45 into the position illustrated in Fig. 3 in which the trimmer abuts the lower surface oil. the cross web Set. \Vhen the movable member 10 nears the top of its stroke, the upper end of the head '72 is arranged to engage a knockotl lever H lifted to the machine frame and by which. the head 72 and consequently the trimmer 45 is depressed or slid from the innc r to the outer end of the projecting die during the remainder of the upward strol -re ot the movable member 10,, thus causing the blunt end of the trimmer to engage the adhering commutator ring and strip it trom its poi-f. upon the projecting die 20.

in order to remove any Waste tr'uur produced by the operation of the auxiluny trimmer which may accumulate in the annular chamber below the trimmer 4:5 and within the cutting die 4:0, provision is nuule for blowing compressed air downwardly through openings (see Fig. 5) in the trimmer 45. For this purpose, compressed air from any convenient source of supply is introduced through a supply pipe 81 into the chamber 82 within the housing 35 above the cross Web 34. The compressed air is permitted to pass trom the chamber 82 through openings 83, Set (see Figs. 1 and l) in the flange 71 and cross Web 34, down into the annular chamber above the trimmer 45 and thence, as above described, through the holes 80 in the trimmer d5.

Provision is also preferably made for cool ing the molding members and the cutting dies and also the material. itself during the formation of the llllg. For this purpose, the annular chamber 85 within the lower portion of the housing 35 may be connected by a pipe 86 with any convenient source of water supply. In addition, a conduit 87 for cooling Water is provided in the stationary portion 17 and though which cooling water may flow from a supply pipe 88. In the formation of comnimtalor rings from laminated mica sheets in which cementitious material is employed for uniting the laminations, it is desirable to cool the operating parts as well as the material in order to reduce to a minimum the tendency of adherence of the rings to the operating parts of the machine. Those skilled in the art will recognize that an important feature of the present invention resides in the con figuration of the molding elements, When using the die-press to produce Ford commutator rings, but that in its broader aspects the features that enable articles of exact size to be produced may be employed with molds for producing other articles of widely differing shapes. It also will be understood that the outer die for cutting a disk from sheet material is not essential, since it is within the scope of the present invention to present previously cut disks of moldable material to the molds for their operation thereon.

In the illustrated ai paratus the molding members and cutting dies are made circular in section in order to form commutator rings of the character shown in Fig. 2, although it is not desired to limit the invention in this respect, and While the preferred embodiment of the invention has been illustrated and described, it is to be understood that the invention may be emlrvdr-rl in other forms Within the scope of the tollow' 1;: cl 'ms.
