Royer, Cleveland Heights, and William J.

Thompson, Cleveland, Ohio, assignors to Harris-Inter type Corporation, Cleveland, Ohio, Delaware a corporation of This invention relates to improvements. in cylinder throwoffs, especially means for throwing ofi cylinders that are arranged with their axes approximately in a single plane, and especially also in perfecting offset presses where the paper to be printed passes between two blanket cylinders each of which acts as the impression cylinder for the other.

In a multicolor printing press of the latter type it is desirable that the difierent cylinders of each unit be arranged approximately one above another so as to conserve space while permitting the press attendants to work comfortably between units. In order to adapt throwoff means to such a unit we have devised mechanism for throwing oif the movable or less vertical direction, and since three cylindersmust be moved to accomplish the complete throwotf operation we have devised means for simultaneously moving two cylinders inopposite directions a like amount and for moving one of the outermost cylinders a greater distance sulficient to separate it from the next'adjacent moved cylinder. 7

7 One of the objects of the invention therefore is the provision of means for the simultaneous movement of three cylinders outwardly away from adjacent cylinders to separate two cooperating blanket cylindersand to separate the two plate cylinders from the adjacent blanket cylinders. I p a e Another object of the invention is the provision of lever and link means for accomplishing in a single operation the separating movements above referred to.

Another object is the provision of means for moving a pair of cylindersin the same general direction with respect .to a third cylinder, with the .farthest one; from the third cylinder being moved az greater distance than the other.

A further objectis the provision of: mechanism of the.

type indicated providing. maximum accessibility for the operator to the clinders of each unit of a multiunit perfecting printing press. e 1 j 1 Still amt er. object is the provision of a novel toggle mechanism .for separating'a pair of cylinders radially from; a" third stationary cylinder by movingthe outer cylinder aQ greate'r distance than the -;one adjacent the thirdeylinderj'. o. 2 I

I Other :ob ctsoand: featuresiof novelty willj appear'as we proceed'fwithf the description of that-embodiment of thein'vention which for the purposes ofthe'present application we have illustrated the accompanying drawings, in which T perfecting rotary offset p ess embodying f p invention,

e View of I one unit of p a- Fig. 4 is a fragmental plan view looking in the direction of arrows 4-4 of Fig. 1.

In the drawings a fragment of one side of the frame of a rotary perfecting ofiset press is indicated at 10. In the frame there is mounted in fixed bearings an upper blanket cylinder 11. A lower blanket cylinder 12 has a shaft 13'which is journaled ina pair of eccentrics 14, each of which is oscillatably mounted in one of the side walls ofthe frame. An upper plate cylinder 15 has a shaft 16 which is journaled in a pair of eccentrics 17, one only of which is illustrated, and a lower plate cylinder- 18 has a shaft 19 which is journaled in a pair of eccentrics 20, each of which is oscillatably mounted in a wall of the machine frame- Each of the eccentrics of the three pairs 14, 17 and 20 has a radial ear or throw arm 21, 22 and 23 respectively, by means of which it may be turned in its mounting. To one side of the unit there is oscillatably mounted in the opposite walls of thefram e a hollow shaft 25 which projects at each end. somewhat outwardly of the frame. In this hollow shaft there is oscillatably mounted a second shaft 26 which extends through the machine and projects somewhat beyond the ends of the hollow shaft, as indicated in Fig. 3. On the hollow shaft 25 outwardly of each side wall 10 there is keyed a short lever 27, and on shaft 26adjacent the two levers 27 there are keyed two bell Fig. 3. is a fragmentalj sectional viewhtaken. substam crank levers 2 8.

The two shafts 25and 26 are angularly adjustable with respect to each other and the adjusting means is preferably such that it functions also to lock the shafts together in adjusted position. To this end there is mounted in one ofthe bell crank levers 28 a shaft 30 having a knob or-wheel 31 by means of which it may be turned by the operator. Shaft 30 carries a worm 32 which meshes with a worm wheel 33 on the lower end of a shaft 34, near the upper end of which there is a second worm 35 which meshes with a worm wheel sector 36 that is integral with lever 27. Since the levers 28 are keyed to shaft 26 and the levers 27 are keyed to shaft 25, these two shafts are adjustable with respect to each other by means of the worm and worm wheel mechanism described and are locked in adjusted position, and the levers 2 7. and. 2 8 on the far side of the machine move through the same arcs as those on the near side to which the adjusting mechanism is attached. The upper arm 37 ofthe bell crank lever 28 oneach side of the machine carries a pivot 38 to which is connected the lower end of a link 39 which connects the bell crank with a lever 40 that is pivoted at 41 to the machine frame opposite'the upper plate cylinder 15. The other end of lever 40is connected by a pivot 42 to a link 43 which is of link for length adjustment. Extending from this same pivot 47 there is a link 48 which forms one arm of a toggle connection, the other arm of which is connectedat the elbow joint 49 of the toggle with a link 50 which extends through a'smooth hole ina pivot 51 carried by the ear-23 on eccentric 20. Nuts 52 and 53 threadably mounted on link 50 engage pivot 51 and maybe adjusted to vary the length of the link. To the,

lower-arm 5 4 of the bell crank 28 there is pivotally con O nected at 55 a link 56 which extends over to and is pivotally connected with the elbow joint 49 of the toggle connection.

In order to obtain a mechanical advantage in throwing-on the movable cylinders of the unit and in order to provide maximum resistance to accidental throwing-off of the cylinders, the operating mechanism for turning the combined levers 27 and 28 embodies a toggle device. This device comprises two toggle arms 60 and 61 connected together at their inner ends by a pivot-'62 constituting an elbow joint. The outer end of arm 60 extends into a space formed between the lower'arm 54 of bell crank 28 and a short offset arm 63. A pivot 64 extends through the arms 54, 60 and 63. The outer end of toggle arm 61 is pivoted at 65 to a bracket 66 that is mounted on the frame.

' Suitable means is provided for moving the elbow joint 62 from the position of Fig.1 to that of Fig. 2 and back again. The means which we prefer is a fluid cylinder 68, a piston therein, not shown; a piston rod 69 extend ing downwardly from the piston and connected with the elbow joint 62, and means, not shown, for directing incoming pressure fluid into one or the other of the chambers above and below the piston and exhaustingg it from the other chamber. The downward travel of the piston in cylinder 68 is so limited thatthe elbow joint 62 cannot pass beyond the position shown in Fig. 1.

If something occurs which requires that the impression in the unit be thrown off, a control is operated in known manner to energize electrical or other means for operating a valve, not shown, in the head of cylinder 68 to introduce pressure fluid into the cylinder below the piston. Piston rod 69 will then rise, breaking the toggle 60, 61 and putting the various parts of the throwoii mechanism in the positions of Fig. 2. The bell crank lever 28 isthus turned counterclockwise which transmits a clockwise movement to lever 40 and turns eccentric 17 counterclockwise thereby shifting the shaft 16 and its cylinder -upwardly away from cylinder 11. At the same time short lever 27 is turned counterclockwise through the same angle as lever 28, thereby lifting link 46 and turning eccentric 14 clockwise. This throws cylinder 12 downwardly off cylinder 11. A similar downward movement is communicated to cylinder 18 since links 48 and 50 hang from link 46, and their upward movement turns eccentric clockwise'at the same time that eccentric 14 is turned clockwise. However, at the same time that the links 46, 48, 50 are drawn upwardly, toggle mechanism 48, 50 is broken by the'link 56 pushing elbow joint 49 to the right, and this adds an additional turn to eccentric 20 clockwise to effect separation between cylinders 12 and 18. 1

One of the advantages of the cylinder arrangement disclosed herein is that the major part of the surface of each plate cylinder is free of any close proximity to any other parts of the unit. Hence there is an abundance of room for the mounting of the inking and dampening mechanisms, and this is of special importance where the width of the press is great because then the inking rollers may be made of relatively large diameter for purposes of strength.

The printing pressure between the two blanket cylinders 11 and 12 is regulated by manipulation ofthe knob or wheel 31. This adjustment is performed when the toggle connection 60, 61 is in the condition of Fig. 1. Lever 28 is held against movement by the locked toggle. The turning of knob 31 therefore functions return lever 27 and eccentric 14. Eccentric 17 is not affected and hencethe bearing pressure between cylinders 11 and 15 remains as it was. cylinders 12 and 18 also remains unaffected when the setting of knob 31 is changed because the two eccentrics 14 and 20 are disposed in the same angular relation and have corresponding eccentricities andathrow .arm.

lengths and any adjustment of lever 27 is-equallyeffec- The bearing pressure between tive upon both eccentrics 14 and 20. The pressure between cylinders 12 and 18 therefore remains the same unless the adjusting nuts 52 and 53 are moved for adjustment purposes.

In one aspect of the invention cylinder 11 may be considered as an impression cylinder of a non-perfecting press, the cylinder 15 being omitted and the throwoff then affecting only the cylinders 12 and 18.

It is essential that the spacing of cylinders 11 and 12 be adjustable by the press operator to control the pressure between those cylinders to compensate for differences in the thickness of the paper stock to be imprinted, and it is important that such adjustment not affect the pressure between cylinders 11 and 15 or between cylinders 12 and 18. The mechanism of the present invention accomplishes this purpose. The result is due to the fact that the throw arms 21 and 23 are of the same length and that the eccentricities of the eccentrics 14 and New alike and are disposed at the same angle to the horizontal. When the two toggle arms 60, 61 are in alignment lever 28 is fixed against movement. The turning of knob 31 then swings lever 27 only, which does not affect eccentric 17. It operates through link 46 to turn eccentric 14 through a given angle. Since toggle links 48 and 50 are then in alignment they move the same distance as link 46 and turn eccentric 20 through the same angle as eccentric 14. Hence the pressure between cylinders 12 and 18 is not changed.

The throwoff of cylinder 18 from cylinder 12 could be accomplished by substituting a single straight link for the toggle links 48 and 50 and increasing the eccentricity of eccentric 20 over that of eccentric 14. But if that were done any adjustment of lever 27 to increase the distance between cylinders 11 and 12 would also increase the distance between cylinders 12 and 18, and any adjustment to decrease the distance between cylinders 11 and 12 would tend also to decrease the distance between cylinders 12 and 18. The latter would be impossible because of the bearers on those cylinders. Accordingly the use of like eccentricities for the eccentries 14 and 20 and the employment of the toggle links 48 and 50 to effect separation of cylinders 12 and 18 constitute'important features of the invention.

While in the preferred form the eccentrics 14 and 20 have equal eccentricities and throw arms of equal length, it is within the purview of the invention to employ unequal eccentricities and throw arms provided the throw arm and eccentricity of one eccentric are in the same ratio as those of the other eccentric.
