I INVENTOR Harmon 1? Ellz'oii ATTORNEY Patented May 16, 1933 HAIR-MON P. ELLEOTT, OE WATERTOWIF, MASSACH'E TSETTS, ASSIG-NOR TO ELLIOTT" ADDRESSING Ii'IACHINE CUHEPANY, A CUBPORATION OF RiASSACIIUS-ETTS APPARATUS FOR SIMULTANEQUSLY PRIN TING,ADDRESSES AND OTHER- MATTER Application filed November 2, 1931 Serial No. 572,482.
This invention comprises a further improvement on addressing machines of the type shown in my copending application Serial No. 473,322, filed August 6, 1930, in
which machines different names and addresses out or stamped: out in a series of stencils fed along oppositely grooved parallel guide bars or rails are printed on fa series of post cards or other articles which are also fed along with the stencils between a pair of oppositely revolving platen sectors, the upper one of which has a smooth, resilient face carrying ink which is supplied to it by contact with an inking roll journaled above it.
The present invention consists, essentially, in ext-ending said inking roll and the lower, or pressure platen sector a suificient distance beyond one of said stencil guides and then attaching to said smooth faced ink carrying sector a third sector having type formed on its face and located outside of said stencil guide, which last mentioned sector cooperates with said inking roll and lower, pressure platen sector to print the legend outlined by its type upon the margin of each card or sheet of paper in the same operation in which a name and address is being printed onit.
Thus two different types of printing, ad- 30 dress printing and ordinary printing can be done at one and the same time by merely adding the third, or typecarrying sector, to the existing addressing machine shown in my said copending application.
Preferably, also, said two ink carrying sectors are both mounted on a single sleeve which is releasably mounted on a properly journaled revoluble shaft to which it is detachably coupled, as shown in my said co 40 pending application so that such sectors can be removed as a unit and other forms of sector or sectors substituted therefor when desired. The best form of apparatus at present known to me embodying my invention 45 is illustrated in the accompanying drawing in which Fig. 1 is a general side elevation of a portion of an addressing machine such as shown in my said copending application to which 50 the printing sector has been added, a few parts being omitted and others shown in section.
Fig. 2 is a plan view of the parts shown in Fig. 1, and
Fig. 3 is a detail, perspective View of the removable sleeve on which the two ink carrying sectors are mounted. 1 9
Throughout the drawing like reference characters indicate like parts. i
9 and 99 are parallel, oppositely grooved straight bars along the grooves in which a series of stencils 7a, 7a, are fed between lower pressure platen sector 5 and the upper, ink-carrying sector 3a, which receives ink from the inking roll 4 which is above it and rests on it.
21, 21, represent a series of post cards, a stack of which are supported above a feed drum 23, with the front edge of the lower card resting on the roughened rubber strips 35, carried by said drum. These force the bottom card under the spring gate 124 through guides 22 and'between the sectors 5 and 3m in timed relation with stencils 7a, so that some of the ink on 3a is forced through the stencils to print the address cut therein on the card below, all as explained in my said copending application.
The stencil feeding mechanism comprises the slide 41 supported under stencil guide 99, one edge of which it grasps by means of upwardly bent lugs 42, while feed claw 43 projects upward from it to catch the rear end of a stencil alongside the groove of guide bar 99. This slide has a laterally projecting pin over which one end of link 39 may be hooked, the other end of said link be ing pivoted to crank pin 49 on crank disc 38 which revolves with sector 3a. 7
Preferably sector 3a is mounted (as described in my said copending application) on a sleeve 37, which may slide on and off the revoluble shaft 2, beingfeleasablyheld thereon by spring pressed pin 44 carried by the sleeve and engaging annular groove 45 in said shaft. lVhen the sleeve is thus in posit-ion the slot 48 in its end engages radial the slide 41 is reciprocated once in each revolution of the sector 3a.
The above described apparatus is the same as that described in my copending application No. 173,322 except that sleeve 37 is prolonged as shown to carry a third sector 36 which has a facing sheet or block 8 in which are molded the type 7 and the link 39 is bent as shown in Fig. 2 to allow for the resulting offset position of crank disc 38.
Once in each revolution of shaft 2 the type 7 will receive ink from inking roll 4 and thereafter bear on the post card 21, pressing it down on lower sector 5 and printing the legend on the margin of the cardwhile, and just after, an address is being also printed thereon by the ink carrying sector 3a and a cooperating stencil. r
The stencil guides 9 and 99, as shown, extend under and are fastened to castings 101 and 98, which form the base of a stencil magazine, not shown. These castings are supported from laterally sliding bars and 94, so that the stencil guides are adjustable toward and from each other. The construction which permits this lateral adjustment of the stencil guides 9 and 99 results from their being supported on the transverse sliding bars 94 and 95, the supporting apparatus of which is the same as that fully shown and described in my said pending application Serial No. 473,322,- above referred to, and therefore seems not to require further detail illustration. Consequently, when the sleeve, carrying sectors 3a and 3b and connecting rod 39, is removed and any similar sleeve carrying another sector or sectors of different width is mounted on shaft 2, the stencil guides 9 and 99 can be adjusted so as not to interfere with the operation of the modified printing apparatus so produced. The surface of sector 3a and the. type 7 should be formed of the same material,
usually a rubber composition, so that they will cooperate equally well with the inking roll 4, which is usually formed of iron.
The inking roll 4 and lower pressure platen sector 5, as shown in my copending application herein referred to already have broad faces to cooperate with a wider ink carrying sector in printing a mesage on the side of each post card, opposite to that on which an address has been, or is to be, printed. Consequently, all that is needed to make the machine of said prior application also operate in accordance with my present invention and print the mailing permit, or any other short legend, at the same time and on the same surface on which the address is printed, is to substitute for the sleeve 37 there shown another longer one like that here shown having a type faced sector 36 also mounted on it.
Various changes in the details of construction here shown could be made without departing from the underlying principles of the invention as above explained or as may be obvious to those skilled in the art.
Having described my invention, I claim. 1. In an addressing apparatus employing a series of address bearing stencils, the combination comprising a pair of oppositely grooved parallel guide bars along the grooves in which said stencils may be slid, a rotary pressure platen sector journaled below said bars'on an axis extending transversely thereof, one end of said sector ex: tending under and beyond one of said guides, a smooth faced platen sector journaled above said guides so as to rotate between them, a type bearing sector having a common axis with and rigidly connected to said smooth faced sector but spaced away therefrom far enough to locate it outside of the stencil guide under which the pressure platen extends, and a single inking roll having a face broad enough to bear on both said upper sectors, together with means for rotating-all said sectors synchronously and feeding stencils along said guide grooves; whereby a different name and address may be printed on each sheet passed between the upper and lower platent sectors by cooperation of said stencils and smooth faced sector while a uniform legend is printed on all sheets by said type-bearing sector.
2. A combination such as defined in claim 1 in which the face of said smooth sector and the type on the other upper section are both formed of a rubber composition while the face of the inking roll is formed of metal.
3. A combination such as defined in claim 1 in which said upper sectors are both supported on a sleeve removably mounted on a revoluble shaft forming said common axis thereof, and in which said stencil guides are adjustable toward and from one another; whereby said upper sector may be removed and another sector or sectors substituted therefor, the stencil guides being adjusted so as not to interfere with the rotation of any sector so substituted.
Signed at Cambridge in the county of Middlesex and State of Massachusetts this 30th day of October A. D. 1931.
