385,430 filed October 12, 1953, now Patent No. 2,846,220,
roll 35 spaced from the first may be and is provided. These rollsw'are rotatablynmounteddn the frame. The t 2,890,884 Patented June 16, 1959 sheet passes over the feed rolls and a deflector or ejector member 37 to means for passing each sheet to printing means or cylinders, the means shown being a conveyor 33 passing around a roll 39 mounted on a shaft 36. The deflector is movably mounted on the main frame and preferably is pivotally mounted by pivot means 32 at each end thereof and located generally between the edges of the deflector and carried by the main frame. A pressure roll 31 is mounted for contact with feed roll 33 and a sheet to hold each sheet in frictional contact with the feed roll and also to assure that the sheet does not contact a multiple sheet detector 34. t
. The sheet feeding means or rolls 33 and 35 are driven byany desirable drive means connected with the printing press. The drive means (Fig. 3) includes a gear 14 carried on the end of the roll 33 which meshes with a gear 15 rotatably mounted on one plate 10 of the main frame. This gear 15 meshes with a gear 16 carried by roll 35 so that both feed rolls are driven at the same speed and in the same direction. The roll 35 or gear 16 is driven by a gear 17 carried on the main frame which in turn is driven by a sprocket 18 and chain 19 which is connected with another part of the press drive so as to be operated in synchronism with the press. The gear 16 also carries a gear 19 which meshes with a larger gear 20 secured to and which turns the shaft 21, the purpose for which will appear more fully hereinafter. .The sheet feeding means includes means for pressing a sheet S against feed rolls 33 and 35 for effecting satis' factory friction drive for. the sheet. Means is also provided for ejecting or deflecting multiple sheets from the normal path as will appear more fully hereinafter. The means for pressing the sheet on the feed roll is mounted on a shaft or bar 134 which is secured to the main frame plates 10. A parallel pivotal shaft or bar 40 is pivotally mounted on the main frame plates. A parallel fixed shaft or bar 41 is secured to the frame plates and spaced from bar 134. A detector and pressure roller frame or frame 42 is mounted on said bars or shafts 134, 40 and 41, the latter serving as a guide for the frame. The frame may be clamped to the bar 134 by a set screw 49. Mounted on a pivot 43, carried by the frame 42, is a lever 44 rotatably carrying at one end said pressure roll 31. A spring 45 is connected at its lower end to the other end of said lever 44 and its upper end is attached to a fixed pin on said frame 42, thus pressing the pressure roll 31 in contact with feed roll 33 or pressing a sheet passing therebetween against the feed roll. The bars 134 and 41 in being secured to the main frame plates 10 may be considered as constituting a part of the main frame.
An upright plunger or finger bar 46 in the form of a plate is pivoted at its lower end to the end of the lever 44 to which spring 45 is connected. A pin 47 extends through a slot 48 and is secured in the frame 42. Said slot 48 has a vertical part and a horizontal part at the upper end of said vertical part. The spring 45 normally keeps pin 47 in the lower end of the vertical part of the slot but roll 31 can be raised and held raised by pressing the plunger 46 down until the horizontal part of the slot is opposite pin 47, and then pressing the plunger so that the horizontal part of the slot contains the pin. The plunger may be released by moving it forwardly and roll 31 will return to effective pressure position. Means .of any suitable sort presses the sheet against feed roll 35 such as balls 50 each carried 'in a well 51 carried on opposite sides of the frame 42. Each sheet is held in suitable engagement with roll 35 merely by the free weight of the balls.
. The frame 42 is connected by cross members 52 and screws 53 with a frame 54 (Figs. 5 and 7). The frame member is essentially a part of the frame 42. At the top of frame member 54 is a block or guide 55 which may be pivotally supported thereon by means of a pin 56. The block 55 has a bore therethrough slidably receiving a rod 58 the upper end of which is screw threaded and carries a nut 59. Below block 55, helical compression spring 60 surrounds said rod 58 and is compressed between block 55 and a pivotal connection 61 between 'rod 58 and an arm 62 fixed 'on shaft 63. The shaft 63 is mounted for turning in a bearing in the frame member 54. Eccentrically carried on the end of a shaft is a detector or detector shoe 34, the detector 34 being mounted on a pivot 66 eccentrically carried on the end of the shaft 63. The detector 34 has a circular periphery 64 and a clearance periphery 65 shown as a flat.
It will be seen that by adjusting the nut 59, the distance of the pivot 66 and of the periphery of the detector or detector shoe from the top of feed roll 33 may be adjusted. Usually it is set at a distance above the roller so that a sheet will pass freely underneath, a clearance of about one thousandth of an inch greater than the sheet thickness being sufficient. The spring 60 urges the pivot 66 and the detector 34 toward the top of the feed roll 33 limited by the nut 59 engaging the block 55. By adjusting the nut 59, the pivot 66 and detector may be kept at the desired distance from the top of roller 33. The spring 60 also permits the detector to yield upwardly under the pressure of the multiple sheets in the event the clearance periphery does not sufficiently space. The detector 34 has an upwardly projecting part or shoulder 67 normally held in engagement with a stop or pin 68 projecting from the frame member 54, by means of a spring 69 attached to a pin 70 on the detector 34 and a pin 71 on the frame member 54. The periphery of said detector 34 is relatively broad as shown in Fig. 2.
Operating means are provided to pivot the deflector or deflector plate 37 under control of the detector which operating means may take many forms. Means are also provided connected with the feeding means to restore the deflector to normal or sheet passing position. The detector is provided with a downwardly turned hook or projection 73 which obstructs movement of the deflector operating means by engaging the lower upturned end of ahook'74. The hooks 73, 74 form interengaging means which retains the deflector in feeding position until released. The upper end of'the hook 74 is attached on the shaft orbar 40 and is shown keyed thereto by a set screw 72 engaging in a key slot 72a so that it and the frame 42 may be moved along the bar. Said shaft 40 is provid'ed at its end with a downwardly extending arm 75 (Fig. 4'). The lower end of the arm 75 i's-connected by a generallyhorizontal link 76 with the upper arm of a lever 77 w'hich is secured to a deflector pivot'32. The pivot 32 may be carried by flanges 30 secured "to the deflector 37. Means are provided to restore the operating*m'eans to initial 'positionwhich means includes the lowerend ofsaid lever 77 connected by a generally horiz'ontalilink 78 with an upwardly extending arm 79 of a bell crank 80 of which a second arm 81 may be actuated by a stud 82 on the cam 22 carried by the cam shaft '21. The upper arm of lever 77 is urged toward a stop pin 83 by a spring 84 connecting at one end to said lever 77 and atits other end with a fixed pin 85. It is this spring which propels the deflector to its deflecting position when the interengaging means is released. Normally'said hook 74 is locked in positioniby said detector book 73 and the arm "81'of the bell crank 80'will be held out of the path of the-stud 82 which maybe in theiforrn of'a pin with a sleeverotatably mounted thereon-to avoid friction.
When a plurality of sheets passesbetween the detector 34'and-the forward feed-roll 33, the detector will The pivoted thereby from its normal position'with the Circu lar; periphery 64 adjacent the roll-33 shown in Fig; to -the position'with theclearance periphery adj acents the roll as shown in Fig. 6. In this movement the hook 73 is turned or lifted and releases the hook 74, thus allowing the spring 84 to act through the connections 40, 75, 76 and 77 and cause the detector to move from its full line position (Figs. 1 and 5) to a tilted position where the sheets engage the underside thereof and will direct the multiple sheets downwardly on a chute 23. When the multiple sheets have passed the feed roll 33, the detector 34 is returned to its original position by the spring- 69.
The movement of the operating means to tilt the deflector 37, also swings the bell crank 80 to the dotted line position of Fig. 5 where it is engaged by the stud 82 and presses the same upwardly against the tension of the spring 84. This restores the deflector 37 to horizontal position and the operating means with its hook 74 to initial position. The hook 74 will pass !beneath the hook 73 to lift the latter enough for hook 74 to 'be locked by hook 73. This locks the deflector 37 in horizontal or sheet forwarding position. If only one sheet is fed to the feed roll 33, the detector will not be turned or opera'ted and the sheet will pass over the second feed roll- 35 and under balls 50 which assure suitable frictional contac't of the sheets with feed roll 35. From the feed roll 35 the single sheet 'will normally pass over the ejector or deflector 37 and pass on to the conveyor 38 and to printing cylinders.
The drive mechanism for the shaft 21 and cam 22 through gears 19 and '28, is a substantial gearreduction. The ratio is determined by considering the maximum length of sheet which passes through the feed rolls. The rolls, therefore, make a sufficient number of revolutions to pass a plurality of sheets, before the deflector restoring mechanism functions to restore the deflector '37 and the operating mechanism to initial position.
The-'means'described for detecting and deflecting multiple sheets and the restoring means therefor may be ap plied to existing machines such as presses which have feed rolls to which this means may be applied. This means, therefore, is a sub-combination of the complete mechanism described.
This invention is presented to fill a need for improvements in a multiple sheet ejecting mechanism.
