22 Claims.

This invention pertains to stripfeeding and' severing devices, and. more particularly to an automaticbursting machine for progressively advancing a continuous strip of material past a severing, position andv successively dividing the strip transversely into individual sheets.

In the operation of modern businesstransaction, recording and billing machines, and other writing, imprinting and addressing apparatus, it

is quite common practice. to produce successions of legends, imprints, or messages at longitudinally spaced intervals upon continuous strips of stationery, and subsequently divide the strips into individual sheets, each bearing imprinted or written matter. For convenience in dividing the strips into sheets of uniform length,the strips are usually provided with longitudinallyspaced transverse, scoredor weakened division lines at uniformly spaced intervals. The present apparatus is designed to auto matically divide such strips at-the prescribed intervals at a very rapid rate, by momentarily subjecting advanced portions of the strip to tensionoperation of strip feeding and severing mechanisms, whereby they may not only be economically manufactured and operated, but'will be moreefficient in use, automatic in operation, uniform in action, having relatively few operating parts, and be unlikely to get out of 'repair.

A further object of the invention is to provide ,a stripfeedingand severing apparatus, which isof compact form, relatively small in size, and

.- rapid in operation.

- A further object of the invention is to pro- ;vide an improved form of feeding means, by

which the'strip tobe severed is intermittently advanced in timed sequence with the severing operation.

A further object of the invention is to provide an-improved strip tensioning device and actuating means I therefor. V

A further object of the invention is to provide gagstrip feeding and severing machine having the I advantageous structural features and inherent meritorious characteristics, and the mode of ops eration herein set forth.

, With the above primary andother incidental objects m view as will more fully appear in the I specification, the invention intended to be'protected by Letters Patentconsists of the features of construction, the part'sand combinations thereof, and the mode. of operation, or their equivalents, as. hereinafter.- described or illustrated in the accompanying drawings.

In the accompanying. drawings, wherein is shown the prefcrredbutobviously, not necessarily the only form of embodiment of'the invention,

Figs. 8, 9. and. 10 are details of the frictional clutch assembly shown in Fig. '11

Fig. 11 is a detail iviewofa modification of the tensioning rollers.

Like parts are indicated .by similar. characters of reference throughoutthe several views;

Referring to the drawings, the frame of"the machine comprises a pair offrelatively spaced vertical end plates land Zrigidljrintrconnected with eachother bytransverse tie-rods 3 -4. At the front of the machine- (rightofF'ig. 4'and left of Fig. 6) is a hingeditray [torec'eive a supply packet of strip ma'terial tubesevered.

- The tray 4 is pivoted at5 anmproviddwitha helical tractilespringfi, the connection of'which is movable to and .fr'opast dead center position to hold the tray alternately in extended 'a'ndaretracted positions. Atthe oppositesid of the machine is an inclinedvtablel upon which are .col-

lected the individual sheets into. whichthe-stiip is divided. Journaled intheend plates adjacent the front-of the machine isa revoluble .fed shaft 8, preferably, butnot necessarily, .carryingajpair of axially. adjustable p'in wheels '9 for engagement in. marginalypunched holes the strip. 'to' be severed,

While positive feeding of the strip. is quitedesirable, it is not essential 'a'ndtheshaft .afmaybe provided with a friction feed roller. or otherstrip engaging. means.. Intermediate .the piniwl'ieels 9 are a=seriesof curved, fiat guide fingers lfi inou'nted on'a supporting shaft H in parallel 'ojifs'et relation with the pin wheel shaft" 8; The -guid fingers --support the advancing strip. intermediate the pin wheels. overlying each pin wheel is a slotted guide finger l2 by which the punched margins of the pin wheels. The upper clamp bar I4 is mounted in vertical guides on the end frames for alternating motion toward and from the fixed clamp bar I3. Helical springs l5 intermediate the bars tend to elevate the upper bar l4 after each depression thereof. In spaced relation rearwardly of the clamp bars I3-l4 is a pair of coacting cam rollers l6|1, each having a segmental resilient tenacious pad I8 of rubber or other analogous material. v

" The pads l8 project peripherally beyond the pe- "ripheries of the-rollers through limited registering portions thereof and comprise interengaging cam faces. The'rollers are interconnected by a pair of intermeshing gears-l9 (at'left of Fig. 2 and shown in Fig. 3) for'unison rotation so that "thepads' l8" oppose each other with the strip of material interposed thereb etween during a portion of each revolution. The relation of the rollers l5 and l! is such that during a portion of their ro-" bars l3-l'4 by rotation of the pin wheels 9. Upon continued rotation of the rollers IG-l'l the advanced portion of the strip is gripped in advance of a transverse'division line between the tenacious pads [8. The clamp bar 'I4-is simultaneously depressed intogripping engagement with the strip- .back of the transverse weakened division line to "momentarily snub the strip while the roller pads continue to exert pulling tension thereon. During "this tensioning period, the strip feeding pin wheels 9 aremomentarily arrested. The tension exerted upon" the strip by the .gripping' segments l8 of the rollers against the resistance of the clamp bars l 3 l4 exceeds the tensile strength of the trans- "verse weakened division line, then positioned intermediate the clampbars androllers, and the strip fails and' separates along the preformed weakened division line; v The several cooperating parts are actuated in timed sequence bya driving motor 20 located in the bottom of the frame (Fig. 2) connected by a drive beltfl2l with a pulley 22- on'a driven shaft 23 journaled in'the'e'nd' frames and extending across themachine below the rollers 16-! l. The "drive shaft 23 carries at its right hand extremity, Fig.2, a small gear pinion 24 which meshes with a large gear wheel 25 upon the shaft of the 1 upper roller I'I, 'to'drive the roller at increased Ispeed. '(See Fig.4.) The two rollers It and I1 Qar'e'interconnected for unison rotation by the jgearsjjfljatftheir left extremities, as viewed in Fig. 2, and a's'appears in Fig.3. The upper roller It carries at each end for unison rotation therewith a rotary cam 26, which at each revolution engages one end of a medially pivoted rocker 21 jfmounted on" the end frame. One end of the .r'ocker is provided with a'roller 28 with'which the actuating" cam engages, The opposite end of the "rockeroverhangs and bears upon the depressible ,clamp barsl4. The rocker2l operatestode sistance of its elevating springs in timed relation with each rotation of the rollers. The de pressed clamp bar grips the interposed portion of the strip to resist the tensioning influence of the rollers l6-I| as the pads l8 thereof engage the strip and tend to advance it against the resistance of the clamp bars.

The strip material is advanced step by step between the clamp bars and thence between the rollers intermediate the severing engagement thereof with the strip during succeeding cycles.

I The driving train for the feed shaft 8 derives its by a spring 46.

power from the large gear on the upper tension roll shaft, which meshes with a gear pinion 29 loosely journaled on a revoluble stub shaft 30 journaled in a hub 3| which projects inwardly from the end frame 2. Fast upon the stub shaft 30 at the inner side of the gear 29 for unison rotation is a notched disc 32, having therein a peripheral notch 33. The gear 29 is operatively connected with the revoluble stub shaft 3|] by a friction slip clutch of any suitable construction. For illustrative purpose, but without limiting the invention to the particular form of friction drive assembly illustrated, there is shown keyed upon the rotary stub shaft 30 at the outer side of the loose gear 29 a second disc 34. Interposed between the loose gear 29 and the respective discs 32 and 34 are friction discs 35, keyed to the gear for unison rotation by studs 36 on the gear which engages holes 3'! in the friction discs 35. The gear 29 has therein a series of spaced holes 38, as shown in Fig. 8, in each of which is a helical expansion spring 39 which exerts its influence in opposite directions against the interposed friction discs and thence against the discs 32 and 34 fast upon the shaft 30. The construction is such that the rotation of the gear 29 produces rotation of the stub shaft 30 so long as the latter is free to turn. However, upon arrest of the shaft 30 the gear 29 continues to rotate by slipping the friction discs upon the spaced discs 32 and 34.

Secured on the end of the stub shaft 30 for unison rotation is a small change gear pinion 43 with which meshes a gear member 4| carried by a swinging arm 42 pivoted concentric with the drive shaft 8. By swinging adjustment of the arm 42, the gear 4| may be intermeshed with interchangeable gears of different size. The

at 44 a bifurcated detent pawl 45, one arm of which extends in proximity to the periphery of the rotary disc 32, toward which it is pressed The detent pawl 45 engages in he notch 33 to stop the rotation of the disc,

and with it the stub shaft 30 and the feed shaft driving train. The detent is oscillated out of its engagement in the notch 33 to permit operation of the feed shaft driving train by a cam 41 on the lower tensioning roll shaft, as shown in Fig. 5.

During each rotation of the tensioning roll I! the cam '41'engages the detent arm 48 to disengage the locking pawl from the disc 32 and hold it disengaged during approximately half the cycle of operation, during which time the feed shaft press the clamp bar I4 against the yielding reand pin wheels are in motion and operate to adjvance the strip adistance determihed by, the ratio ftiori in its" form, proportions, detail construction jandarrangement of parts without departing from jthe 'principl'e involved or sacrificing any'of its advantages.
