12 Claims. (Cl. 192-145) The invention relates to a sewing machine drive comprising an electric motor acting as main driving means, a releasable friction clutch disposed between the said motor and a power take-off shaft connected to the rotating parts of the sewing machine, and an auxiliary drive which can be coupled with the power take-off shaft instead of the main drive. According to the invention, a brake-releasing device is provided by means of which the brake is automatically released after braking the power take-elf shaft, in order to release the said shaft for movement by the auxiliary drive. The result is thus obtained that the brake, which is intended in known mannet to stop the rotating parts momentarily, releases the power take-E shaft immediately after having overcome the kinetic energy inherent in the rotating sewing machine parts. The said power take-01f shaft is thus freed for further movement, so that the sewing machine can be adjusted by further turning into a desired neutral position in which, for example, the needle shank occupies its highest or lowest position. The automatic release of the brake is particularly advantageous if the auxiliary drive of the sewing machine is arranged to effect the said adjusting movement automatically after the main drive has been disengaged.

The brake-releasing device is preferably electromechanically operated and can be controlled by a centrifugal switch which is connected to rotating parts of the sewing machine and responds as soon as these parts have been braked. If the machine is provided with a contact device operating as a circuit-breaker which disconnects the auxiliary drive when the machine is in the desired position, the centrifugal switch may be mounted on the same shaft as the circuit-breaker.

The sewing machine drive according to the invention may furthermore be so designed that the same brake becomes operative both after interruption of the main drive and after interruption of the auxiliary drive. This has the advantage that a relatively strong brake is also available for braking the movement produced by the auxiliary drive. The said movement can then be completed at a higher speed than is possible in the known sewing machine drives, so that the machine is very rapidly set into its neutral position. The saving of time thereby effected is of considerable practical importance, particularly in the case of sewing machines for industrial concerns.

Various embodiments of the invention will now be more particularly described by way of example and with reference to the accompanying drawings, in which:

Figure 2a is a plan View of a centrifugal switch,

Figure 2, a fragmentary view of a modified part,

' Figure 3, a fragmentary section through a second constructional example,

Patented May 27, 1958 Figure 6, a partial view with a fragmentary section on the line Vl--VT of Figure 5, and

Figure 7, a diagrammatic illustration of the whole arrangement and of the circuit arrangement of the first example.

in all the embodiments, a driving clutch disc 2 is mounted on a motor shaft 4 running in bearings 3 in a motor housing 1. 5 is a friction lining. A clutch housing ia has a projecting boss '7 in which the power takeoif or coupling shaft 10 is mounted in bearings 8 and 9, the inner races of which are securely fixed to the shaft it). The bearings 8 and 9 are mounted with their outer races securely fixed to the inner surface of a sleeve 11 longitudinally displaceable in the boss 7. The inner races may be held on the shaft 10 by being forced on with a tight fit, but a locking ring 811 or pin may be provided at one end to prevent sliding in one direction. A spacing sleeve 8b prevents sliding of the bearings toward each other, while sliding between the outer races and sleeve 11 is prevented by a tight fit of the races in the sleeve or any other means known to the man skilled in the art such as slight beading with a punch. Coupling pressure can be exerted in known manner through a flange 12 which is secured to the closed end of the sleeve 11 by means of screws 11a and may be displaced longitudinally by a clutch lever 15 mounted in bearing brackets 13 and pivoting on a pin 14, so as to couple a co-acting clutch disc 16 secured on the take-off or coupling shaft 10 with the friction lining 5. The lever 15 may be arranged for actuation by the operators leg, or knee, or may be linked with a foot pedal in any suitable manner. The spring 13 acts in opposition to the coupling pressure. If, while the sewing machine is being driven, downward pressure on the horizontal portion of the lever 15 is released, the coacting clutch disc 16 is first pressed against a brake lining 17. As soon as the rotative inertia or kinetic energy inherent in the rotating sewing machine parts has been reduced by the braking device, in the embodiment shown in Figure 1, an electromagnet 19 controlled by a centrifugal switch (46 in Figure 7) and a relay (50 in Figure 7) becomes operative, and by means of a pin 20 draws a clutch housing 21 having a friction lining 22 against an auxiliary clutch disc 23, so that an operative connection is set up. The travel of the pin it), which is assembled with a disc 24 co-operating with the magnet 19, is so great that the coupling shaft 10 releases the clutch disc 16 from the braking surface 17.

At the same time, however, the motor H (Fig. 7) of an auxiliary drive is switched on by the relay 50 and rotates a worm 25 (Figures 1 and 7). The worm 25 cooperates with a worm wheel 26, which is mounted on the boss 7 and has flanges or boss extensions 27, 28. The clutch housing 21 is so arranged on the flange 27 as to be longitudinally displaceable, a locating key 29 serving to prevent rotation thereof with respect to the flange 27. The electromagnet 19 is so mounted on the flange 28 as to rotate therewith. The worm Wheel 26 can be driven by the worm 25, which is mounted on the shaft of the auxiliary motor, as shown, or it may be driven by the auxiliary motor through a belt. It is possible, instead of employing the worm wheel 2a, to provide a pulley (shown in Figure 2) with a belt groove 30, a toothed wheel or the like. If a toothed wheel is used, it can be brought into operative engagement with the auxiliary motor, through an intermediate gear, for example.

The rotation of the shaft of the sewing machine is transmitted without slip to a shaft 45 through a belt 42 and pulleys 43, 44 (Figure 7). Mounted on the said shaft 45 is the aforesaid centrifugal switch 46 and a contact disc 47. The latter has interruptions in the form of insulating inserts or linings 48, 49, which act on the circuit a, b of a relay 50.

to a current collector S. The centrifugal switch 46 does not close this circuit until the kinetic energy of the'rotatin-g parts is eliminated. In the position illustrated, the

curre'ntcollector S interrupts the circuit when, for example, the sewing machine needle is in the upper deadcentre position. If the current collector S is moved in the verticaldir'ection through a 'Bowden cable B the adjusting device E of which may be secured in the pedal F of the sewing machine, the circuit is broken when the needle is in the lower dead centre position. The Bowden cable B is connected to earth at M. Also connected to earth at M is a conductor b, which is connected to the end of thecoilof the relay. A conductor is connected directly to the relay coil. As soon as a current interruption occurs, a circuit df places out of circuit the auxiliary motor H which has served to turn the needle into the re-' quired deQd-CBIRI'G 'POSifiOD. If the main motor A is also employed to drive the auxiliary clutch, the pulley 39 driving the. worm wheel 26 (Figure 2) can rotate cont inuou'sly with the main driving device. The operative engagement and the release of the braking are efiected by the magnet 19 as already described.

In a further embodiment as illustrated in Figures 3 and 4, after the kinetic energy inherent in the rotating parts has b'een overcome by a normally stationary, but selectively longitudinally displaceable brake disc 31a having a braking surface 3112, an electromagnet 31 releases the co-acting clutch disc 16 by somewhat rotating the brake disc 31a through a pin 33. The pin 33 engages with. a helix 34, and the disc 31a is thus axially moved in accordance with the pitch of the helix 34, and is thereby removed from engagement with the disc 16. The electromagnet 31 corresponds substantially to the electromagnet 19 provided in the embodimentillustrated in Figures 1 and 7.and is connected in a similar manner to the said electromagnet'19. The parts shown in Figures 3 and 4 which are identical with parts of Figure l are designated in the same manner as in Figure 1, the less important reference numerals having been omitted.

A further embodiment is shown in Figures and 6. A
