ROLL FEED MECHANISM Filed Oct. 15, 195] INVENTOR Arfhur .ILeu/z's ZZZ.
BY fya/bu/ ATTORNEYS United States Patent ROLL FEED MECHANISM Arthur J. Lewis 3rd, Shelton, Conn., assignor to The Baird Machine Company, Stratford, Conn., a corporation of Connecticut Application October 15, 1951, Serial No. 251,427
18 Claims. (Cl. 271-2.3)
This invention relates to feed mechanisms for feeding wire, strip stock or the like, and more particularly to roll feed mechanism for feeding metal strip stock to presses and similar machines.
Roll feed mechanisms of various types have been used in the past for this type of work, but in some cases difficulty has been experienced in obtaining a proper and uniform feed of the stock to the press or other machine, and it is accordingly one of the objects of the present in vention to provide an improved roll feed mechanism that will overcome these dilliculties.
Another object is to provide a roll feed mechanism of simple, economical and rugged construction.
Still another object is to provide a roll feed mechanism so constituted as to provide a uniform stock feed regardless of variations in thickness which are found in ordinary commercial grades of strip stock which the mechanism is adapted to feed.
A further object is to provide novel means for adjusting and controlling the pressure exerted by the rolls on the stock during feeding.
Still another object is to provide simple and efiicient means for effecting and maintaining separation of the, rollers when it is desired to render the feeder inoperative.
Another object is the provision of means for readily adjusting the feeder to accommodate different thicknesses of stock.
Yet another object is to provide novel means for supporting and positioning the feeder rolls.
A still further object is to insure uniform engagement of the'rolls with the stock over the entire width of the stock.
These and other objects and novel features of the invention will become more readily apparent when considered in the light of the following description and accompanying drawing. It is to be understood, however, that the invention is not limited thereto, reference beinghad to the appended claims for a definition of the limits of the invention. I
Referring to the drawings;
Fig. l is a perspective View of a roll feed mechanism embodying the invention;
Fig. 2 is a perspective partially exploded view of the mechanism in Fig. l;
Fig. 3 is a perspective view of a sub-assembly comprising the upper roll and roll carrier shown in'Figs. l and 2, and
Fig. 4 is a fragmentary front elevational view of the lower portion of the vertical guides shown in Figs. 1 and 2.
As shown more particularly in Fig. l, the present roll feed mechanism includes a frame 4 adapted to be bolted to a press or other machine, not shown, a roll shaft 5 journaled in journal blocks 6 on the frame as shown and carrying a lower feed roll 7 and an upper feed roll drive gear 8 at the left end of the shaft. The shaft 5 is driven,
ordinarily intermittently, by the machine to which the feed mechanism is attached, by conventional means such as a ratchet mechanism, not shown, connected to the drive carrier support 21.

shaft. To insure proper alignment of the journal blocks on the frame at either end of the shaft, theframe is provided with a pad portion 9 machined flat on the front face with a vertical slot machined in the face at 10 on the right side and in like manner on the left side. A front cover piecell is similarly provided with slots 12 and'13'having the same spacing as the slots in pad portion 9. Like slots 14 are machined on the front and rear faces of journal blocks 6. Four vertical upright key or guide members 15 are fitted into the slots as shown and serve to maint-ain the blocks 6 and cover plate 11 in alignment laterallywith the frame portion 9, the assembly being held together by cap screws 16 extending through the cover plate 11, blocks 6, and upright members 15 into the portion 9 of the frame, As indicated in Fig. 4, the lower ends of guides 15 are provided With'slots 16a through which cap screws 16 pass, thus permittingthe guides to be moved upward or downward for purposes to be described, after which they are clamped in place by tightening cap screws 16-which clamp the above mentioned assembly together. The vertical members extend upwardly above the journal blocks and serve to support the upper roll mechanism and to form parallel guides for a portion of the upper roll carrying mechanism as more fully described hereinafter.
An upper roll' 17 is journal'ed on a U-shaped roll carrier 18- as shown, the latter being machined with flat front guide faces 19 and 20 and corresponding rear faces spaced from and parallel thereto, as well as parallel to the axis of the upper roll, these faces being adapted to slide vertically between the upright members 15 as guides. This arrangement insures that the upper and lower roll axes will: be maintained in a common plane. at all times, while permitting the roll carrier and upper roll to move vertically with respect to the lower roll as wellas toallow the roll carrier to rock between the guides to change the angle between the roll axes in said common plane. An upper roll drive gear 20a is attached to the upper roll at the left end outside of the carrier 18 and is adapted to mesh with gear 8, as in most cases better feeding action is obtained when both rolls are driven.
An upper roll carrier support 21, shown in detail in Fig. 2, is provided with four vertical slots 22 adapted to receive guide members 1-5, and horizontal slots 23 and 24 on the ends thereof adapted to receive locking bars 25 and 26 respectively. This support is mounted on the feeder by sliding it down along the guides 15 until slots 23 register with horizontal slots 27 formed at the upper ends of the guides, whereupon locking bars 25 and 26 are placed inthe aligned slots and held in position to lock the assembly together by cap screws 28' passing through the locking bars and into the upper roll An opening 29 formed in the roll carrier support is adapted to receive the central upwardly extending portion 29a of the roll carrier.
Positioning of the upper roll and carrier in the frame and' adjustmentof the roll spacing to effect or interrupt feeding is effected by a cam shaft or crankshaft 30 having :bea-ringportions 3-1 and 32 journaled respectively in bores 33 and 14 inthe roll carrier support 21, and provided with a crank or eccentric portion 35 journaled in bore 36 of upper roll carrier 18, this bore in the embodiment shown, being at right angles to, and spaced upwardly, from the axis of roll 17', as well as at right angles to the plane of upper roll carrier faces 19 and- 20, the axis of the bore passing through the verticalcenter line of the carrier. Thus the upper roll carrier is mounted for pivotal movement on eccentric 35 and the assembly comp-rising roll 17 and carrier 18 may be moved upward or downward relative to the lower roll .by rotating shaft 30' to change theangular position of eccentric 35; Theshaft ismaintained in the support 21 by a washer 36a and a cotter'key 37 as indicated in Fig.2,
and the shaft is actuated by a control lever 38 mounted on the left end of the shaft as shown. Although in the feeding of heavy stock it is desirable to support the roll carrier 18 against movement axially of shaft 30 by means of guides 15, it will be understood that other means may be resorted to to prevent such movement, as except for such movement, the carrier and upper feed roll are maintained in feeding alignment with the lower roll by virtue of the pivotal mounting of the carrier on crankpin 35 of crankshaft 30, and in any case support 21 limits axial movement of the carrier with respect to the shaft.
The lower end of the lever is provided with a slot 39 and a clamping screw 40, loosening of the clamping screw permitting the angular position of the lever on the shaft to be changed for purposes of adjustment, as will be more fully described hereinafter. An outwardly extending stud 41 on the lower end of the lever is adapted to engage the right end of a control spring device 42 of the tension type, the other end of the spring being attached to an outwardly extending stud 43 on the left end of locking bar 26. With the upper roll and carrier raised to non-feeding position as shown in Fig. 1, the lever 38 rests against bar 26 acting as a stop, and the studs 41 and 43 are so positioned with respect to the axis of shaft 30 as to lie in a line extending above the axis of the shaft. Thus the spring exerts a force tending to rotate the shaft in a counterclockwise direction and acts to maintain the lever against the stop. On rotation of the lever in a clockwise direction, the line of pull of the spring changes and passes below the axis of the shaft, thus rotating the shaft in a clockwise direction and forcing the upper roll and carrier downward and into feeding engagement with the stock being fed. In order that the stock entering the rolls may be properly guided, the cover plate 11 is provided with a transverse T slot 44, and cap screws 45, engaging square nuts, not shown, slideably mounted in the T slot, serve to adjustably position and clamp guide blocks 46 as shown to guide stock of varying widths.
For any given feeding position of the crankshaft or eccentric, the upper roll is positioned by engagement with the stock, by engagement of the carrier with guides 15,
and by engagement of the crankpin with the carrier. Thus in the preferred form of the invention as shown, the carrier and roll are positioned by the crankpin against bodily lateral movement with respect thereto.
It will be apparent from the foregoing that a simple and strong mounting is provided for the feed rolls on the frame, and that the roll supporting structure can be readily disassembled for the replacement of worn rolls by removing the two cap screws 16 and the four cap screws 28, whereupon all of the roll supporting parts can be readily removed from the frame 4.
The upright guide members 15, in cooperation with the guide surfaces 19 and 20 on carrier 18, insure maintenance of the upper and lower roll axes in a common vertical plane at all times, while at the same time permitting relative angular movements of these axes in the common plane, the drive gears 8 and 20a being so constructed as to remain in mesh during such angular movements. In feeding strip or bar stock, it is very important that the rolls have line contact with the bar for its entire width, regardless of variations in surface parallelism and in thickness found in bars of commercial grade, and lack of such contact may result in misfeeds and consequent serious damage to the machine to which the stock is being fed. With the upper roll carrier pivotally mounted as on shaft 30, the roll is free to rock on the shaft and engage the bar across its entire width, at the same time forcing the lower surface of the bar into feeding engagement with the lower roll across the entire bar width.
In addition to the requirement that the rolls have line contact with the bar for its entire width if reliable and accurate feeding is to be insured, it is equally essential that the rolls exert substantially the same pressure on the bar at all points along this line of contact. This desirable action is insured by the application of the spring force at the center of the upper roll carrier, as by the action of the spring biased crank 35 in the bore 36. Regardless of the force exerted by the spring 42, the application of this force at the center of the roll carrier insures that this force will be evenly distributed along the entire line of contact of the rolls with the stock, and consequently, only one spring adjustment is necessary to insure that the rolls engage the stock with the required uniformly distributed feeding pressure.
It is desirable that the feed mechanism be adjustable to vary the roll pressure and the roll spacing to accommodate different types and thicknesses of stock, and provision has been made for this. The roll spacing may be varied by bodily moving the entire upper roll carrying assembly, including support 21 and guides 15, upward or downward with respect to frame 4, as shown in Fig. 4, slots 16a are provided in the lower end portions of members 15. The cap screws 16, which clamp the guides in position between the journal blocks and members 4 and 11 respectively, pass through these slots. In loosening of the cap screws the entire assembly, which includes guides 15 and member 21, can be moved upward or downward to change the roll spacing, after which the cap screws 16 are again tightened to clamp the assembly together.
Also the angular position of the crankshaft relative to stop 43 can be varied by changing the angular relationship between lever 38 and the shaft, this being accomplished by loosening the clamping screw 40 on the lever and rotating the lever to a new position on the shaft. This adjustment is complementary to the adjustment above described for varying the height of member 21 above the frame member as will be understood from the following explanation. With a piece of stock of the thickness to be fed placed between the upper and lower rolls and with the cap screws 16 loosened, the position of support 21 relative to the feeder frame can be adjusted so that the angular position of the crankshaft is such as to give the desired leverage, after which the lever position on the shaft is so adjusted as to insure proper separation of the rolls when lever 38 is moved to nonfeeding position against stop 43. If further adjustment of feeding force on the upper roll carrier is desired, a different spring can be substituted for spring 42, the radial spacing of stud 41 from the axis of shaft 30 can be changed, or a crankshaft having a lesser or greater throw can be used.
While the invention has been illustrated and described with considerable particularity, it will be apparent to those skilled in the art that the invention is not limited thereto, but may take other forms within the limis of the appended claims.
