UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE PUSH Ron Leonard J. Rosa, Detroit, Mich. Y Application November 5, 1945, serial No. 626,878

(C1. 12s-9o) 7 Claims.

used in valve actuating mechanisms of internal combustion engines and to a method of making the same.

An important object of the invention is to provide a push rod that is strong and rugged in construction but exceedingly light in weight.

Another object of the invention is to provide a push rod that is simple in construction and inexpensive to manufacture.

Still another object of the invention is to provide an eicient method of making the push rod.

Yet another object of the invention is to provide a novel method of capping the ends of the push rod that eiects a strong, rigid union between the caps and the terminal portions of the rod.

Other objects and advantages of the invention will be apparent during the course of the following description.

In the drawing, forming a part of this speciiication and wherein like numerals are employed to designate like parts throughout the same,

Figure 1 is a side elevation of a push rod cmbodying the invention, parts being broken away and shown in section for clearness of illustration,

Figure 2 is a side elevation of a tubular metal rod as it appears before the end caps are applied thereto,

Figure 3 is a fragmentary longitudinal sectional view through one of the end caps and a terminal portion of the tube showing the initial relationship of the parts during the capping operation,

Figure 4 is a view similar to Figure 3, but showg ing the end of the tube pressed into the cap,

Figure 5 is a view similar to Figure 4, but illustrating the relationship of the parts after the tube has been pushed farther into the cap,

Figure 6 is a View similar to Figure 5 but illustrating a subsequent step in the capping operation and showing the tube expanded radially into the circumferential enlargement provided in the side wall of the cap,

Figure 7 is a vew similar to Figure 6 but illustrating the relationship of the parts during the iinal step of the capping operation and showing the tube folded or upset against the inner end of the cap,

Figure 8 is a longitudinal sectional view through a modied tube and cap showing the manner in which an oversize tube can be capped according to the present invention and illustrating the initial relationship of the parts during the capping operation, Y Y

Figure 9 is a view similar to Figure 8 but illustrating the relationship of the tube and cap after 2 the capping operation has been completed, and Figure 10 is a longitudinal sectional view through a second ymodied tube and cap and showing the relationship of the parts after the nal capping operation.

Considered in certain of its broader aspects, the

` invention comprises a push rod of the type shown in my copending application, Serial No. 548,267, which was led August 5, 1944. However, the pushV rod embodying the instant invention diiers .structurally from the push rod" shown in the application and it is formed by an entirely different method. According to the present invention, the terminal portions of a tubular metal rod are inserted Y in preformed caps of relatively harder material andthe parts subjected to an axially compressive force. The sockets of the caps are provided with spherically curved bottom portions and circumferential enlargements in at least a portion of their side Walls so that application of force in the.

the tube to further deformation becomes suffi-4 ciently great, its side wall expands radially intoy the circumferential enlargements. Continued application-of pressure then causes the portions of the tube extending from the caps to fold outwardly or upset against the inner ends of the caps. Preferably, the inner ends of the caps are then. compressed slightly to assure a snug, tight t with the tube. YThe capping operation is completed and the caps are strongly and rigidly united with the tube.

Obviously, there are a number of different ways in which the tube and caps can be mechanically held or supported during the capping operation; however, this conveniently may be done by gripping the tube immediately behind the point at which the iinal upset occurs and then pressing the caps toward each other whereby to subject the rod to an axially compressive force The tube preferably is held mechanically by suitable gripping jaws and pressure is applied to the caps in any suitable manner such as by mechanically or hydraulically driven rams. Y

This method of forming the push rod permits the finished product to be held to an accurate longitudinal dimension. If the jaws which grip the tube are accurately and uniformly spaced,

all the .push 4rods will be brought tothe same 2,434, 3 longitudinal dimension since the nal upset occurs in the portion of the tube extending between the end of the cap and the jaws. The method of forming the tube is such that it can be made automatically by mechanical means.

In practice, the caps are first formed, then hardened and preferably brought to an externally highly nished condition before they are applied to the tubes. Since the caps are small they kcan be economically manufactured Vandqr'eadily han:-` dled. The capping operation preferably is done' cold so as not to affect the finish of the caps.

From the foregoing it will be apparent that the push rod embodying the instant invention comer prises an elongated, relatively thin-walled metal tube which carries end caps of relatively hardL metal and having circumferential enlargements in the side walls thereof. Y

The portions of the rod within the capspress against the ends of the latter, enter the circum- 20 ferential-enlargement inI their sidewalls and'rhave' radial extrusionswhichf bear againstithefinner ends thereof; The .interlocking 'engagement thus provided :by: the deformed 'portions of thertubefY hold the caps solidly and permanently.;associated'V therewith: .4 n

When the resistance is sufliciently great, the tube 20 yields at the point 42 where it enters wall portion 38 and expands radially against the circumferentially enlarged wall portion 36. The expanded portion of the tube is designated by the numeral 44 and, as shown in Figure 6, it closely follows the outline of the enlargement and is pressed solidly against 'the ywall offthe latter:

As'"soon"as 4the'tube expands radially in the manner hereinabove described, resistance to further movement of the cap 22 becomes so great that the portion of the tube extending between the cap and the gripping jaws upsets, as at 46, against-i-thelinner end of the cap. This step is showninvFigureF and, as soon as it occurs, the capping operation is complete.

Inl practice, the entire operation can be performed rapidly and with very little danger of damageftoftheffparts. f Theinterlocking engagements between fthe-cap and the` rod iholds the` former. solidly` united: with the tube,-
