Patented May 25, 1948 OFFICE TAG HOLDER FOR LAUNDRY MARKING MACHINES Genevieve Petty, Denver, Colo.
Application June 15, 1846, Serlal No. 677,049
This invention relates to a tag holding attachment for laundry marking machines of the type illustrated in-United States Patents No. 2,136,461 and 2,157,497, and is designed more particularly as an improvement over the tag holding attachment described and illustrated in applicants co-pending application, Serial No. 635,841, now abandoned.
In the usual laundry marking machine it is difficult to hold small cloth tags, such as used by dry cleaners, while the customer's mark is being impressed thereon. The principal object of this invention is to provide a highly efficient, easily operated attachment forsecurely holding a tag in place in the marking machine while the mark is being impressed thereon.
Other objects of the invention are: to so construct the tag holding device that it will not interfere with the normal operation of the marking machine; to provide an attachment which will not be damaged by the rough usage to which such machines are subjected; and to provide an attachment of this character which can be readily applied to the conventional marker without change therein.
Other objects and advantages reside in the detail construction of the invention, which is designed for simplicity, economy, and efllciency. These will become more apparent from the following description.
In the following detailed description of the invention, reference is had to the accompanying drawing which forms a part hereof. Like numerals refer to like parts in all views of the drawing and throughout the description.
In the drawing:
Fig. 1 is a fragmentary side elevation of a typical laundry marking machine with the invention in place thereon;
Fig. 2 is a detail section, taken on the line 2--2, Fig. i;
Fig. 3 is a similar detail section, taken on the line 3-3, Fig. 2;
Fig. i is a fragmentary. detail section, taken on the line 4-6, Fig. 3; and
Fig. 5 is a detail view of a conventional impression pad frame of a typical laundry marking machine illustrating how the invention is applied thereto.
In the drawing, typical parts of a marking machine are designated by numeral as follows: housing i2, type wheels i3, type wheel guards it, supporting base it, impression pad it, impression pad holding frame 3, handle i'i, impression arm 58. inking toggle l8, inking toggle bolt 20, inking toggle spring 2|, inking pad 22,
and inker connecting link 23.
Briefly, the operation of such a marking machine is as follows:
The operator sets the type wheels 13 to bring the desired series of letters or numbers into the desired printing alignment on the type wheels. The article to be marked is then placed across the impression pad l8 and the handle I! is forced forwardly to swing the impression arm I8 toward the type wheels l3.
As the arm moves forwardly, the connecting link 23 pushes the toggle l9 forwardly to bring the ink pad 22 against the aligned type faces. Further movement of the impression arm l8 forces the toggle bolt 20 forwardly, breaking the toggle and allowing the ink pad to swing downwardly from the inked type so that the article on the impression pad I 6 can be forced thereagainst. The handle I! is then swung back to its original position, allowing the spring 2| to straighten the toggle l9 back to the position of Fig. 1.
The conventional impression arm 18 is an A- shaped frame having a horizontal cross member 24 adjacent its base. The connecting link 23 is secured between the two sides of the A-shaped frame i8 by means of a horizontal hinge bolt 25.
This invention is designed to hold a small cloth tag in place on the impression pad I6 so that it will be securely carried against the type faces on the type wheels 13.
The holder employs the hinge bolt 25 for its attachment to the machine. The holder comprises a relatively thin clamping plate 26 having rearwardly turned ears 2'! formed on its opposite sides. The ears are perforated for the passage of the bolt 25, and are positioned between the head and nut on the bolt 25 and the side members of the A-shaped frame i8 and project below the handle ii. The projecting extremities of the ears 271 are turned or twisted at right angles to form two flat finger tabs 29.
The clamping plate 26 is constantly urged toward the impression pad it by means of a single leaf spring 30. One extremity of-the spring 30 is riveted, as shown at 3!, to the plate 26. The other extremity bears, and is flexed, against the upwardly-turned portion of the L-shaped connecting link 23.
The cloth tag, indicated at E2, is clamped between the plate 26 and a flexible backing plate 33. The backing plate is formed from spring brass or bronze, so as to be flexible. It is secured to the impression pad holding frame 34, shown in the-clamping plate 28 are positioned in alignment with and terminate below-the impression pad [6. The clamping plate 26 can be lifted from the backing plate 33- to receive the tag 32 by lifting either or both of the finger tabs 29.
Since the latter tabs are positioned immei diately below the handle I 1, they are within convenient reach of the fingers for lifting purposes. It will be noted that, as the impression arm l8 swings toward the type wheels, the clamping plate 26 swings to a more perpendicular position. In
is-fiexible, it will act as a cushion to allow the r entire structure to recede on contact with the type wheels, to prevent damage.
While a specific form of the improvement has been described and illustrated herein, it is desired to be understood that the same may be varied, within the scope of the appended claims, without departing from the spirit of the invention.
Having thus described the invention, what is claimed and desired secured by Letters Patent'is:
1. A tag holding attachment for laundry marking machines of the type having an impression pad carried on. an impression arm, and an impression pad frame surrounding said pad, comprising: a backing plate secured to said frame below said pad and extending upwardly so that its upper edge terminates immediately below said pad; a horizontal hinge pin extending across said frame below said pad; a relatively thin clamping plate; ears formed on the extremities of said plate and turned at right angles to the plane thereof, said ears being perforatedto, receive said hinge pin, the upper extremity of said clamping plate terminating immediately below the impression pad in alignment with said backing plate immediately below said impression pad; and means for urging said clamping plate toward said backing plate to clamp the lower edge of a laundry tag between the two plates so that it will extendupwardly over the pad.
2. A tag holding attachment for laundry marking machines of the type having an impression pad carried on an impression'arm, with an impression pad frame surrounding said pad, the arm being connected by means of an L-shaped connecting link with an inking arm, the connecting link and the impression arm being connected together by means of a hinge pin, comprising: a relatively thin clamping plate; ears formed on the extremities of said plate and turned at right angles to the plane thereof, said ears being perforated to receive said hinge pin, the upper extremity of said clamping plate ter- 4 minating immediately below the impression pad; a backing .plate secured to said frame below said pad and extendingupwardly to a termination immediately below said impression pad; and a l f pring secured to said clamping plateand extending downwardly into contact with said connecting link and urging said clamping plate to clamp the lower edge of a laundry tag between the two plates and over said impression pad toward said backing plate.
