15 Claims.
This invention relates to lock-stitch sewing machines of the type employing a rotary looptaker for casting needle-thread loops about a thread-carrier or -case journaled in and restrained against rotation with the loop-taker. More particularly, the present invention relates tomechanisms commonly referred to as mechanical openers.
The present invention has for its primary object to provide an improved construction for effecting an unobstructed passage for the needlethread loops around the thread-carrier of a rotary hook type of loop-taker, insofar as the needle-thread loops would meet with interference or resistance by the rotation-restraining means employed for preventing rotation-of said threadcarrier with said rotary loop-taker.
Another object of the present invention. is to provide the hook-saddle of a lock-stitch machine with a built-in mechanical opener having simple and compact actuating mechanism.
A further. object of this'invention is to provide a mechanical opener entirely sustained by the usual hook-saddle and deriving its actuation from the hook-shaft.
A still further object of the present invention is to provide a mechanical opener supported by the usualhook-saddle and arranged so-that its drive is accomplished through gearing disposed within the cavity containing thegear-drive between the bed-shaft and the hook-shaft.
With these and other objects in view, as will hereinafter appear, the invention comprises the devices, combinations and arrangements of parts which will be described in connectionwith the accompanying drawings, illustrating a preferred embodiment of the invention andin which:
Fig. l is a front elevation,- partly in vertical section, of a sewing machine equipped with the present invention.
Fig. 2 is a bottom plan View of the sewing machine shown in Fig. 1.
Fig. 3 is an enlarged top plan view of 'a portion of the'machine bed-plate, with the bed-slides removed and the thread-carrier stops of the throatplate shown in section, better to expose the looptakers.
Fig. 4 represents a'vertical sectional view taken substantially along the line 44, Fig. 3.
Fig. 5 represents a vertical sectional view taken substantially along the line 5-5, Fig. 3.
Fig. 6 is an enlarged top plan view of the rotary loop-taker 'and that portion of the mechanical opener mechanism exposed on top of the hooksaddle, showing the mechanical opener in its advanced or effective position in which the threadcarrier has been reversely turned so that its rotation-restraining. nose or lug is disposed midway between the thread-carrier stops, which are shown in section, thereby to provide an unobstructed free passage for the needle-thread loop.
Fig. '7 is a view similar to Fig. 6, but with the mchanical opener at its extreme retracted or ineffective position, the thread-carrier rotationrestraining lug urged into contact with one of the thread-carrier stops by the rotation of the loop-seizing element of the loop-taker.
Fig. 8 is a vertical sectional View taken substantially along the line 8-8, Fig. 7, illustrating the way in which the opener-finger is adjustably secured to its carrier.
Fig. 9 is a vertical sectional view taken substantially along the line 9-9, Fig. '7, showing the manner of mounting the opener-finger carrier fulcrum-stud on. the hook-saddle.
Fig. 10 is a horizontal sectional View taken substantially on the line ID- ID of Fig. 4.
As. shown .in the-drawings, the present invention has .been embodied in a two-needle lockstitch sewing machine. This machine has a frame comprising awork-support or bed I I from one end of which rises a standard I2 of a bracketarm terminating at its free end in a head I3 overhanging the work-support ll. Journaled for endwisereciprocation within the bracket-arm head His a needle-bar 14 carrying at its lower end a needle-clamp I5. Secured in the needleclamp l5 are two needles [6 and I1 spaced from each other lengthwise of the Work-support ll. Also 'journaled for vertical movement in the head 13 is a spring-depressed presser-bar l8 carrying at its lower end a conventional presser-foot I9.
The material to be stitched is advanced across the work-support H by a feed-dog 20 operating through a suitably slotted throat-plate 2| and opposed in its work-engaging movements by the presser-foot 19. In the present machine, the feed-dog 20 is provided with clearance apertures 22 for the needles l6 and I1 which have imparted to them movement in the direction of feed while in the work to assist the feed-dog 20 in feeding the material.
The feed-dog 20 is secured on a feed-bar 23 having a'fork 24 engaged by a feed-lift eccentric 25. The eccentric 25 is carried by the usual horizontally disposed bed-shaft 26 which is rotatably journaled in bearing lugs 21, 28 and 29 depending from the work-support II. The bearinglugs 21 and 28 are provided with bearing bushings 38 and 3|, respectively, and the bearing lug 29 is provided with a ball-bearing 32 for the shaft 25. Adjacent the bearing lug 29, the bed-shaft 26 carries a pulley 33 driven by a belt 34 to rotate the shaft 28 once for each complete needle-reciprocation.
The feed-bar 23 is pivotally connected to a feed-advance rocker 35 suitably fulcrumed at the front side of and below the work-support ll. Operatively connected to a crank-arm 36 depending from the feed-rocker 35 is one end of a pitman 3! formed at its other end with a strap embracing a feed-advance eccentric 38 carried by the bed-shaft 26. The eccentric 38 is of conventional design and is adjustableas to eccentricity in order that the feed-advancing stroke can be regulated. The described feeding mechanism functions to impart the usual feed-lift and feedadvance movements to the feed-dog 20.
Complemental to the respective needles l8 and IT, in the formation of lock-stitches, are two looptakers 39 and 49 disposed below the work-support I l and comprising vertical-axis rotary hooks of conventional design. The rotary hooks 39 and48 each has an upwardly open cup-shaped body provided in its sidewall with a needlethread loop-seizing and -spreading beak 4i. Carrying the rotary hooks 39 and 40 are vertically disposed hook-shafts 42 journaled in the vertically spaced walls of the supporting brackets or saddles 43. These saddles 43 are each adapted to be supported beneath the work-support H, and to that end each is provided with a split-boss 44 clamped by a screw 45 upon the bearing bushing 35 or 3| and a foot 46 secured by a screw 41 against the under face of a seat 48 (Fig. 2) milled on the work-support II. The described securing means for the saddles 43 provides for adjustment thereof lengthwise of the work-support H i. e., for adjustment of, the saddles 43 transversely of the direction of feed.
The hook-shafts 42 each has secured thereto a spiral pinion 49 meshing with a spiral driving gear 55 carried by the bed-shaft 26; the proportions of the gear 59 and pinion 49 being such that the rotary hooks rotate twice for each complete reciprocation of the needles.
Journaled in the respective rotary hooks 39 and 49 are thread-carriers and 52 about which the needle-thread loops are cast by the rotary hooks. To prevent the thread-carriers from rotating with the rotary hooks, each of the carriers is provided with a nose 53 extending laterally from the carrier and entering a stop-notch formed by spaced stop-lugs 54 and 55 depending from the throat-plate 2|. The stop-lugs 54 and 55 act to restrain the thread-carriers 5| and 52 from rotating with their respective hooks; the stop-lugs being spaced apart a distance greater than the width of the thread-carrier nose 53 so as to permit limited turning movements of the thread-carrier in opposite directions.
In order to provide thread-clearance space bethread-passage is provided past the threadcarrier rotation-restraining means. The effect of the operation of the mechanical opener is tween the thread-carrier nose 53 and the stop-lug clearly illustrated in Figs. 6, the nose 53 being moved to a position substantially midway between the stop-lugs 54 and 55, providing a free thread-passage on each side of the nose 53. In connection with vertical-axis rotary hooks, it has been the more general practice to provide thread-carrier engaging fingers actuated from eccentrics carried by the vertical hook-shafts. Ina mechanical opener of this type, the openerfinger necessarily engages and oscillates or turns the thread-carrier a plurality of times for each stitch-formation; one of the turning movements of thethread-carrier being idle and performing no useful function. While this arrangement has the advantage of permitting employment of a small actuating eccentric for imparting a comparatively short movement to the opener-finger, and also permits the adjustment of the looptaker saddle, the double action of the opener is a definite speed-limiting factor due to overheating of the parts at high speed operation of the machine. These double-acting devices are known as two-to-one mechanical openers.
It has also been the practice to actuate a mechanical opener, associated with a vertical axis rotary hook, from the bed-shaft which rotates once only for each stitch-forming cycle. These single-acting expedients are referred to as oneto-one mechanical openers. However, devices of this character have been more commonly employed in connection with sewing machines having only one rotary hook and more generally employing a spring-returned cam-follower unadapted to meet and to withstand the extreme high speed requirements. There have been other embodiments of the one-to-one mechanical opener in multiple-hook sewing machines, but these have been driven by a single eccentric on the'bed-shaft of the machine. The single eccentric drive for a plurality of openers has the drawback of complicating individual timing of each opener. Also, when adjusting the hook-saddles to accommodat various needle spacings or gauges, the actuating connections for the openerfingers must be adjusted to correspond to the position of the saddles.
The present invention aims to provide a mechanical opener of the one-to-one type which is particularly well adapted for multiple-needle sewing machines, and which is compactly built into the hook-saddle, whereby the saddles may be adjusted for various needle gauges without requiring a resetting of the openers. To this end, each saddle 43 (Fig. 4) is provided with upper and lower bearing bushings 56 and 51' in which is journaled a vertically disposed rotary opener-shaft 58. The opener-shaft 58 has mountedon it a spiral-gear 59 meshing with the hook-shaft pinion gear 49 (Fig. 10); the gear 59 being the same size as the spiral-gear 55 mounted on the bed-shaft 2B and, consequently, the opener-shaft 58 is rotated at the same speed as the bed-shaft. As shown in Fig. 10, the three meshing gears 49, 50 and 59 are all disposed within a common oil-chamber 69 provided in the hook-saddle 43 and, therefore, are adequately lubricated to sustain high speed operation. A plug 6! threaded into the lower end of the bushing 51 (Fig. 4) closes the shaft bearing against oil leakage. I
The opener-shaft 58, at its upper end, is preferably formed with a crank-pin 62 embraced by one end of a link 53 connected at its other end to a opener-finger carrier 64. The openerfinger carrier 64 is supported for rocking or oscillatory movement on a fulcrum-stud 65 flanged, as at 66 (Fig. 9), for mounting by screws 61, on the top of the hook-saddle 43. To assist in anchoring the fulcrum-stud 65 in proper position on the hook-saddle 44, the saddle is apertured as at -B8 (Fig. 9) to receive a locating-projectionBS depending from the bottom of the fulcrum-stud flange 66. The carrier 64 has fastened to it an opener-member or finger 10 having an offset shank H at 'one end and terminating at its free end in a rounded nose 12. The shank H is slotted, as at 13, to receive a clamping screw 14, whereby the opener-finger is adjustably mounted on the carrier 64. To maintain the adjustment of the opener-finger relative to its carrier 64 in a plane substantially normal to the axis of rotation of the loop-taker, the shank H is grooved, as at (Fig. 5), to receive a tongue T6 provided on the carrier 64.
The opener-finger H3 is shaped to extend inwardly in the direction toward the axis of rotation of the rotaryloop-taker and its rounded nose 12 is adapted to engage a substantially straight edge 11 of an ear '78 extending outwardly from the thread-carrier '5! or 52 to overlie the rim of the rotary hook 39 or Mi; The edge 1'! of the thread-carrier ear l8 preferably extends substantially radially from the thread-carrier to minimize cramping of the thread-carrier in its bearing by the action of the opener-finger 10 and, further, to permit a reduction to a minimum of the effective portion of the stroke of the openerfinger '10.
In the operation of the machine, the gear 59 rotates the opener-shaft 58 at the same speed as the bed-shaft-QS. The crank-pin 52, through the link 63, imparts to the carrier 64 and opener-finger iii oscillations of a constant amplitude; the amplitude of said oscillations being greater than necessary to effect the desired functioning of the mechanical opener. Therefore, it will be understood that not only is the opener-shaft 58 rotating at one-half the frequency of the rotary looptakers, but thatthe opener-finger is has imparted to the thread-carrier a minimum of properlytimed movement requisite to perform its function of separating the thread-carrier stops for the unobstructed passage of the needlethread loops. It will be observed in Fig. 6, which shows the opener-finger in its advanced position in which the thread-carrier has been reversely turned so that its rotation-restraining lug 53 is disposed midway between the thread-carrier stops 54 and 55, that the axis of the crank-pin 62 is in substantial alinement with the axis of the opener-shaft 58 and the axis of the pivotal connection of the link 53 with the carrier 64. Since substantially no endwise movement is imparted to thelink' 63 while the crank pin 62 is turning through this alined position, the openerfinger l0 dwells in its advanced position. This dwell effectively holds the thread-carrier rotation-restraining means separated sufficiently long to permit the needle-thread loop to pass unimpeded through the opening provided between the thread-carrier nose 53 and the throat-plate stoplug '54.
It will be understood from the foregoin that I have devised a mechanical opener mechanism which is compact and capable of being completely embodied in the usual hook-saddle. The arrangement of the parts is such that they may be made small and light in weight; the rotating driving components of which can be easily and thoroughlylubricated. Also, since-most of the mechanismis-housed within the hook-saddle, the mechanism is simple and, moreover, has the appearance of simplicity, which fact is of importance in a demonstration of the machine. While I have shown the improved mechanical opener mechanism as applied to a two needle sewing machine, it will be obvious that most of its virtues still exist when the opener is embodied in a single needle machine.
While I have shown and described a construction best adapted for carrying out my invention, it is to be understood that it is susceptible of various modifications within the range of mechanical skill.
