The machine shown in the Sundback patent includes a series of related mechanisms and since my invention is concerned with only a portion of such mechanisms, the machine will not be described in complete detail. For a full disclosure of the related mechanisms reference may be had to the aforementioned Sundback patent. In the machine shown in this patent the wire of a special cross section is fed upwardly from the underside thereof and blanks are sliced from the upper end of the wire as it is intermittently fed through a cutting die. There is provided means for placing the blanks in a series of dies spaced apart on the upper face of a rotating dial at the circumferential edge thereof, and this dial is intermittently rotated to carry the blanks in turn into line with a punch mechanism and with clamping Jaws where they are attached to a tape. The punch mechanism is operated in properly timed relation to form in conjunction with the forming die in which the blank is resting, the interlocking recess and projection of the fastener element. Mechanism is also provided for feeding the tape intermittently between the clamping Jaw portions of the fastener element and side tools are reciprocated at the proper time to clamp the jaw portion of the fastener elements around the edge of the tape.
In the portion of the machine illustrated in Fig. l of the drawing, there is shown a rotating dial 2 supported on the upper end of a vertical shaft 8 which is operated by mechanism (not shown). There is arranged on the top of the dial II, a series of forming dies 4 equally spaced around the circumferential edge thereof for receiving the fastener element blanks B.
To one side of the dial 2, there is arranged in suitable guides, a movable head 5 on which there is mounted a reciprocating lmife 6 having a thickness substantially equal to that of a fastener blank B. Directly below the knife there is carried by the head 5, a cutting or knife die I up through which the strip S is fed and with which the knife 6 cooperates to cut a fastener blank from the upper end of the strip in a manner hereinafter to be described. The dies 4 in the dial 2 are progressively brought into alignment with the knife 6 to receive the fastener blanks in turn as they are cut by the knife and-cutting die and moved into position in the die by the knife. Immediately after a blank is received in one of the dies, a punch 8 is actuated vertically to form the interlocking recess in the fastener element with the metal displaced from the blank into the forming die during the punching time forming the interlocking projection on the fastener element in a well-known manner.
Thecontour of the cutting end of the knife is substantially U-shaped and adapted to enter the space between the jaw or clamping portions of the fastener blank. The opening in the cutting die I is substantially Y-shaped in cross section so as to conform to the shape of the formed strip 8' from which the blanks B are out.
On the side of the machine, diametrically opposite that from the knife 6, there is provided a fabric beaded edge tape T to which the fastener elements are attached after they have been completely formed in the dies 4. This tape is moved upwardly intermittently by suitable mechanism (not shown) and is guided in its movement by suitable guides (not shown). The dies 4 each carrying a fastener element are progressively brought into alignment with the edge of the tape and a pair of oppositely disposed side tools ill bend the jaw portions together around the beaded edge of the tape so as to clamp securely the fastener elements thereto in a manner well known to those skilled in the art.
According to the present invention, as shown in Fig. 1, there is provided a pair of friction feed rolls I2 which are rotatably mounted on an arm of a supporting member l4 which in turn is suitably mounted on the base or frame (not shown) of the machine. A round wire W is fed upwardly by these friction rolls and the peripheries thereof are preferably grooved so as to conform to the contour of the wire. One of these feed rolls i2 is driven intermittently by a ratchet l3 mounted on the same shaft upon which the roll is mounted and has teeth spaced around the periphery thereof which cooperate with a pawl I5 carried by the head 5. The ratchet wheel is driven by the pawl so as to rotate the rolls I2 sufliciently to feed the wire upwardly an amount equal to the desired thickness of a fastener blank B.
Above the rolls If, there is arranged a swaging die including a stationary or female die [6 carried by the supporting member l4 and an oppositely disposed, horizontally reciprocable swaging punch or male die I 1 carried by the head 5 which dies cooperate with each other in a manner to be described. The working portion of the stationary or female die I! is substantially semicylindrical and smooth-surfaced at its lower end as at 18 with said working portion gradually increasing in size and changing in shape toward the top thereof to substantially a Y-shaped contour at the extreme top as at IS. The side walls of the working portion of this die 16 are provided with inwardly extending transverse riblike portions 28 which are spaced apart substantially the thickness of a fastener blank. These rib-like portions are gradually more pronounced toward the upper end of the die. In other words, the height of these rib-like portions increases gradually from the bottomto the top of the die so that those rib-like portions at the top of the die protrude farther than such portions at the bottom thereof. The working surface of the punch or male portion of the die H is substantially semi-cylindrical or U-shaped with the radius of curvature of the working surface gradually increasing toward the top of the punch with the working surface being tapered from the top to the bottom of the punch so as to conform to the working surface of the die Hi.
There is carried by the die ll and protruding outwardly from the face thereof four (4) pin members 2| which extend into and through complementary holes 22 arranged in the head I for guiding the head in its horizontal movement so as to insure proper alignment and cooperation of the dies 16 and II. The head is reciprocated horizontally by any suitable means (not shown). At the lower end ofthe die I] there is mounted on the head 5, a combination guide and stripping member 23 through which the wire W passes from the feed rolls l2. Below this guide member 23, there is arranged preferably a reciprocating finger-like member 24 which is adapted in one portion to engage the wire so as to prevent accidental movement thereof when the wire is being worked upon by the dies I8 and II.
The swaging die functions in the following manner: The wire W is fed upwardly by the rolls I! by the action of the ratchet i3 and new! It, through the guide member 23 and between the dies l6 and If. The pawl is actuated by the head 5 to which it is attached upon reciprocable area-rec 8 movement ofthe head. smithewire hasbeen fed into the swaging die. the head which carries thedieorpunch l'l isoperatedsoasto bemoved inwardly toward the die It thereby and forging the round wire disposed therebetween. At the end of each swagingoperation. the wire W is moved ahead by the rolls l2 a distance approximately equal to the thickness of a fastener element blank B, thus bringing a fresh section of wire W into the swaging die and moving the previously swaged sections upwardly toward the cutting off punch 6. It will be seen that the wire shape (cross section) is gradually changed by the swaging die as it is fed stepwise therethrough until it is finally formed into substantially a Y-shaped cross section at the top of the die. as shown in Figs. 3 and 4. Asthe wire is worked upon by the die, to change progressively the cross section thereof, the rib-like portions 20 simultaneously indent the outer sides of the wire at points spaced apart approximately the thickness of a fastener element blank B. Also, as the wire is being worked it will be seen that the punch Il acts thereon to form a gradually deepened. longitudinally extending channel on the opposite side of the wire so as to form in conjunction with the die l6, jaw or clamping portions for attaching the elements to the stringer tape. it will be seen then that the swaging die forms the wire progressively into a strip S having substantially a Y-shaped cross section with spaced flutes or indentations arranged transversely around the outer sides thereof so as to provide a connected series of embryo fastener element blanks, as shown in Fig. 2.
It will be understoo that it is the purpose of therib-like portions 20 of the die to indent the side walls of the strip at points where the blanks are to be cut therefrom thereby aiding materially the cutting of the blanks from the strip by providing a relatively thin section of metal at these flutes or indentations. These rib-like portions 2| also provide round corners and smooth finished surfaces on the outer sides of the blank so as to eliminate the need of any further smoothing op erations on the finished fastener elements after they once have been attached to the stringer tapes.
The upper end of the strip S passes through the cutting or knife die 1 arranged above the swaging die immediately after the swaging operation. As has been hereinbefore stated, the wire is fed upwardly after each swaging operation a distance equal the thickness of a fastener element blank. Accordingly, after the strip is feed so that a thickness of one blank protrudes above the cutting knife I, the knife 6 is reciprocated so as to cut the endmost fastener blank on the fastener strip from the strip at the indentation or transverse fiuting and at which point, it is connected to the next formed fastener blank of the strip, as shown in Fig. 5. Thisis done preferably simultaneously with the next successive swaging operation. The knife 6, after the blank B has been cut from the strip, continues in its movement so as to move the blank into one of the dies 4 of the dial 2. After the blank B has been deposited in the dial, the knife 6 is retracted to the position shown in Fig. 1 and the strip is fed upwardly a distance equal to the thickness of another fastener blank due to the retracted movement of the head 5 and the action of the pawl ll carried thereby. This completes one cycle of operation of the swaging die.
AftertheblankBhasbeenpofltionedinthe dial opposite that from the knife 6. The tape T 8 dialathepimehlisectuatedeoastoformthe rooms and projection on the fastener element blank as hereinbefore explained. The dial is thenrotatedsoastobringthe nextdieinposition opposite the knife 6 for receiving the next successive fastener element blank to be cut from theupperendofthestrips. Asthediallis rotated by the shaft 3, it will be seen that the fastener elements are intermittently moved to position opposite the tape T on the side of the is then moved between the legs of the fastener element and the side tools I. are actuated so as to clamp the fastener elements to the beaded edge of the tape T in a well-known manner.
It will be seen by the practice of my invention, that. the swaging die progressively forms a strip having a gradually deepened, longitudinally extending channel arranged in one side thereof with the remaining sides of the strip being formed to the outer contour of a Y-shape so as to provide a strip having substantially a Y-shaped cross section from which the fastener blanks are cut. It will also be seen that the sides of the strip are simultaneously transversely fluted or indented at spaced apart points so as to provide relatively thin walled sections at said points whereby a series of connected embryo fastener elements is provided having rounded edges and smooth finished leg and head portions.
As a result of my invention, it will be seen that there is provided a novel and improved method of preforming a strip for use in making slide fastener elements. By this method, it will be seen that the fastener elements are arranged one on top of the other transversely of the strip thereby providing a method in which no scrap is obtained. The indenting or fluting of the sides of the strip at points where the embryo elements are connected together aids materially in the cutting of the element blanks from each otherthereby increasing the life of the knife and cutting die. Also these flutes or indentations act to position the strip in the swaging die as the strip is being swaged thereby insuring that the resulting fastener elements are uniform and of equal thickness. Another advantage of my method is that the swaging die for practicing the same can be inexpensively and conveniently incorporated with existing equipment without the necessity of any material changes in the design or construction thereof.
While I have shown and described an embodiment which my invention may assume in practice, it will be understood that this embodiment is merely for the purpose of illustration and description, and that other forms may be devised within the scope of my invention as defined in the appended claims.
