United States Patent 2,899,116 -HOSIERY CLIPPIN GAN D EVERTING' MACHINE Stuarts. Long, Pulaski, and. Basil B. Cox, Wurno Community, Va.,l}'assignors of one-third to Paul Knitting Mills, Inc., Pulaski,"Va., a corporation of Virginia Application May -7,- 1958,"S'erial No. 733,700 9 Claims. "(Cl.': 223--43) Thisvinvent'ion' relates -to-techniques and machinery used inthe rna'nufacture= and handling of hosiery.
Aseis-understoodywhen hosiery is removed from a x knittingmachine or the :like,:defects such as loose yarn ends or floated yarnsanormally are present on the inside -:-=of=-the rstockingwor sock. Machines have previously ":b'een'proposed for-inspecting the hose for .such defects and for clipping and removing ;-the undesirable yarn and yarn tends.
Atpresent, the machinesmost commonly used include a. flat metal 'board -forholding the sock inside out and it -is necessary-during the processing for the operator to turn this. boardover byrotating it on a horizontal axis in order to clip-both sides of the sock.
In some cases, machines have been proposed that ineluded a mechanically. rotated formfor a holding the sock inside out and rotating it while an external clipping --means is applied. However, .such machines require a preliminary cutting or-slitting step bythe operator on certaintypesofhose. This step isnot only tedious but is also expensive. Furthermore, these machinesinvolve high initial cost; are quite complicated in structure, and
lack satisfactory flexibility of operation.
As faras is -known, no satisfactory. machinery has heretofore been devised wherejthe .hosiery-flformds rotatedmechanically with automatic .doflinganeans being provided for removal. of the. sock from the form after performing the .trimmingoperation, and hence, it is a primary object oflithis invention-to: provide. such a rnachine. v A 7 'Another object resides in the provision of a novel, ex-
. pedient and simplified method and apparatus for inspecting, trimming and handling hosiery,
A further and more specific: object resides in the-provision of a hosiery machine"including a novelgarrangement of a mechanically rotatable hosiery form and means for automatically everting the'sock-while removingitfrom the form.
Additional objects reside in'the provision of novel wstructures, arrangements and combinationsin hosiery machinery, of the-type-referred to, particularly adapted w to facilitate hosiery trimming and everting- .operations.
The invention, in one-aspect thereof,-contemplates a novel arrangement ofa tubular-form to hold a sock in an "inside-out position ,whileit is being inspected and trim- 'med in combination with means for'mechanicallyrotating -this form: and for thereafter applying a suction :thereto .-to 'draw the sock from the exterior of the form into 1 the latter, tojturnthe sock, and convey it man appropriate collecting receptacle or the like.
-In anotheriaspectgtthe invention contemplates a'novel control arrangement for convenient regulation of I the operation-of the' means forrotating'thexhosiery form and the means sfor; applying suction thereto.
* Further objects and advaiit'ages of" the irive'nti'on will *be in -part obvious-and-inpart pointed out hereinafter.
The novel-features of'the invention may be best made 2,899,116 Patented Aug. 11, 1959 line 4-4 of Figure 2.
Referring now to: the drawings, a hosiery trimming and-everting apparatus embodying the invention is illus- ,tratedin'Figure 1' and is identified generally by numeral 20. This apparatus includes a tubular hosiery form'22 adapted to" have a stocking or sock 24 jfitted thereover inside out,-and a clipping means '26 adapted to clip loose yarn ends or floated yarns on the sock.
As .previously'indicated, means are provided for rotatingthe tubular for -rn,2 2 at relatively high speeds to facilitate the clippingof .the unwanted yarns by the clipping nie ans 26, -\as. will bedescribed in detail hereinb elow. And other .means,. also to be described in detail hereinbelow, are provided for sucking ordrawing the sock inwardly into the forrn22 to turn it right sideout and conveyit, for example, ,to an-appropriate collecting recepta cjle (not shown).
The clipping means 26 maybe of any conventional construction, including, for example, a cutting head 28,
flexible driving cable 39 connected .thereto, and a tube :32. Onesueh clipping means is-disclosed in Patent No. 2 ,5l,ll9, and 'as indicated therein, the cable .30 is driven by appropriate; means and the tube 32 communicates with an appropriatefsuction device to drawthe yarn ends clippedffrom the. sock, therethrough. Thus, the elippi'ng means, per se, forms, no part of the present invention. Cables :34 or the like may beconnected at "oheend 'to the'clipping means, as indicated, and at .the
.a top 38, with 'dro'pleafs 40 at either eiid of the top.
'Fodt pbrtion'ssfl-Z may be provided at the bottom of side walls 36 "as indicated.
'A support E44"isfatt'aeh'ed to the top 38in any desirable manner to hold the form '22 in position. As
best seenv in Figure 2, the support 44 includes a base 46 and a horizontalcylindrical part 48 connected to the base "by'stem 'stl'and provided with'a horizontal bore 52. The inner or-rear end of the form 22 is mounted for rotation in this bore as will be more fully explained hereinbelow. As best shown-.ingFigure 2, the form 22 includes an inner tubular liner -54, enclosed by intermediate 56 and outer 58. tubular members, all of which preferably are circular in transverse section and suitably joined together. A-contou redihead it fitted at the front end of the form, and-,includesaan .annular recess for receiving the outer end of tubular member 58 in the flush relation shown, presenting a.smooth contour at this end so as 'not to damage asoek. fitted thereover. v
A -pulley 62 is suitably drivingly connected to the inner linerffi l injemb jacing relation therewth, and in- 'cludes forwardly. 64 andrearwardly 66 extending hubs. A i'ng .belt 67 'is t'rfained around pulley 62 and is driven bl iastructure latter to be described. The outer memberSS fits over the hub 64, as shown, while the hub 66 and the"rear, end of the liner 54 are disposed within the bore 52. The hub 66 and liner 54 preferably are journalled in the bore 52 as by the two bearings 68, 70. Each of these bearings preferably is mounted in a counterbored portion of the bore 52, as shown, with the front bearing 68 being disposed adjacent the pulley 62 and the rear bearing 70 being positioned adjacent the inner end of the hub 66. A lock nut 72 is shown threaded onto the inner end of hub 66 engaging the bearing 70, and a cylindrical spacer sleeve 74 may be fitted around the hub 66 between the bearings 68, 70. Thus, these bearings and the form 22 will be held in the position shown whereby the form 22 will be rotatable relative to the support 44.
The bearings 68, 70 may be of the ball-bearing variety, including inner 76 and outer 78 rings with balls 80 fitted therebetween, as is conventional. Additionally, these bearings are so constructed as to be airtight, for a purpose to become apparent as the description proceeds.
A fitting 82 is connected to the rear of the support 44, as by bolts 84 (see Figure 1) and includes an annular boss 86 fitting into the space defined between the nut 72 and the rear end of the bore 52 of the support, as shown in Figure'2. This fitting 82 is engaged to the annular end surface 88 of support 44, as indicated in Figure 2, and appropriate sealing means (not shown), such as a conventional ring, may be provided in the joint where this fitting engages the support.
A tubular sleeve 90 preferably having an internal diameter substantially equal to the internal diameter of the liner 54 is carried by fitting 82, in substantially flush relation to the liner, as shown. This sleeve extends into a chamber 92 in housing 94. Housing 94 carries a conduit section 96 mounted therein as by the threaded connection shown, with an adjustable locking nut 98 threaded onto the conduit section and engaging the housing, as shown. The inner end of the conduit section 96 and the adjacent end of the tubular sleeve 90 are spaced apart to define therebetween a fluid inlet 100. The surfaces defining this inlet may be comple mentarily flared, as shown, whereby the fluid inlet is of annular configuration, opening and converging in a rearward direction. If desired, sleeve 90 may be formed integrally with conduit section 96, with inlet openings arranged at circumferentially spaced points in the annular region defined by inlet 100 and likewise opening in a rearward direction.
Although not shown, appropriate sealing means may be provided between the engaged surfaces of the fitting 82, sleeve 90, housing 94 and conduit section 96, and also between the hub 66 and liner 54 to render these various joints airtight.
The internal diameter of the conduit section 96 preferably is of substantially the same internal diameter as the sleeve 90 and is mounted in substantially flush rela tion thereto, as shown, thus providing a passageway 102 of uniform cross-sectional area and uninterrupted in outline, extending between the front end of the fornr and the rear end of the section 96 for a purpose to become apparent as description proceeds.
A conveying tube 104 is engaged to the conduit sec-- tion 96 and preferably extends to some suitable collecting receptacle or the like (not shown). This tube may be constructed of any desirable material and may be transparent, as indicated in Figure 1.
A pipe 106 opens into the annular chamber 92 of housing 94, as best seen in Figures 2 and 4 for introducing fluid under pressure into this chamber for discharge through the inlet 100, whereby it will flow rearwardly, or to the left as viewed in Figure 2, through the conduit section 96 and tube 104. This rearward flow of fluid under pressure will operate to draw a sock fitted over the form '22 into the passageway 102, thereby ever-ting the sock and conveying it through the tube 104.
Referring again to the driving means for the form 22,
4 the driving belt 67 extends through holes 108 in the: table top 38 and is trained at its lower end aroundj a pulley 110 carried by a shaft 112, as shown in dotted lines in Figure 1. Shaft 112 is carried by a conven-' tional speed changing device 114 mounted, for example, on a shelf 116 as bybolts 117 and including an input shaft 118, shown extending at right angles to shaft 112 and having an idler pulley 120 and a drive pulley 1 22 disposed thereon. The idler pulley 120, as is understood, is mounted so as to be rotatable relative to shaft 118, while the drive pulley 122 is fixed to the shaft 118 to rotate therewith.
A belt 124 is trained around the idler pulley 120 and also around a pulley 126 drivingly connected to a take-off shaft 128 of prime mover 130. The pulleys 120, 122 are of any known construction and preferably are disposed adjacent each other whereby the belt 124 may be conveniently shifted from one of these pulleys to the other, as will be set out in more detail hereinbelow, thereby providing a clutch arrangement to rotate or not to rotate shaft 118 depending on which of the pulleys 120, 122 the belt 124 is engaged to.
The prime mover 130 may be mounted on a lower shelf 132 as by bolts 134, with a brace 136 engaged to and extending between the shelves, as shown. A clutch lever 138 in the form of a bell crank is pivoted as by bolt 140 to a support piece 142 extending from the brace .136. This clutch lever includes a bifurcated end 144 engaging the belt 124, and is pivotable about the horizontal axis of bolt 140 to move the belt 124 from the idler pulley 120 to the drive pulley 122 and vice versa.
Pipe 106 is shown extending downwardly through the table top 38 and communicates with the pipe 146. Conventional fittings 148 may be provided in the pipe 106, as shown, and pipe 146 communicates with an appropriate source of fluid under pressure indicated schematically at 150. The fluid preferably is air. A conventional quick-acting valve 152 is provided in line 146 to control the flow therethrough.
In the illustrative embodiment, a foot treadle 154 is provided for controlling the movement of the clutch lever 138 and the actuation of valve 152. This treadle 154 may be suitably mounted above the floor for pivotal movement about a horizontal axis, indicated by numeral 156, and toward or away from the floor. Any appropriate means may be used for pivotally mounting the treadle. For example, a bracket 157 may be provided on each side of the treadle, resting on the fioor and pivotally supporting the treadle at 159. Because of the off-center or forward disposition of axis 156, the rear end of the treadle will be continuously urged downwardly by its weight.
A chain 153 or other similar tension device is con- :nected at one end to a bracket 160 on the rear end of the treadle and at the other end to the clutch lever ..138, as shown. Lever 138 preferably is continuously urged to pivot in a counterclockwise direction, as viewed in Figure 1, by means of a compression spring 162 -'fitted at one end into a hole 164 in a depending wall 166 -on the table, and connected at its other end to a chain 168 or other similar tension device, the latter being connected to the lever 138 adjacent chain 158, as shown. The action of spring 162 will be observed to operate through the chain 168, lever 138 and chain 158 to continuously urge the treadle 154 upwardly. A detent or step 169 is fixed to brace 136 in the path of lever 138 to limit the counterclockwise swinging thereof under the action of spring 162.
An actuating lever 170 for the valve 152 is pivotally connected to a member 172 carried by the valve body for pivotal movement about an axis 174. The lever 170 is adapted to open the valve 152 when it is pivoted clockwise about axis 174, as viewed in Figure 1, the valve being normally .closed. One end. 176 of the lever 172 will be engaged- '10 an actuating -fodor-= other similar actuating device -(not shown)-in the valve' I52, while the other end 178 is connected-by a chain link 180to another lever 182, this latter lever being pivoted at 184 to a memben l86 carried bpthe" loweri shelf 132. A
rod 188 isv-engagedvto the.other-eend/of the lever 182 and to a, rod 190 attached to the foot treadle 154, with an appropriateadjustable coupling-device 192 connecting these rods. -Goupling-device l 92may include a central hole -194-for -receiving the-ends of rods'188, "190,
with set screw-"196adapted-tometightened against the rods to hOId'them-inadjusted 'position.
- this time? the foottreadle 154 is in-the po'sition' shown in Figure 1 wherein the belt 124 is engaged to the idler pulley 120-, the form 22 therefore being stationary, and the valve 152 is closed. The loose ends and floated yarns on the inside of the sock 24 are exposed and the operator now presses down on the rear end of the foot treadle 154 whereby the clutch lever 138 will be pivoted clockwise to move the belt 124 into driving engagement with the drive pulley 122. The valve 152 will still be closed. The counterclockwise pivoting of lever 182 about axis 184 will not cause any significant movement of lever 170 due to the chain link connection therebetween.
Power will now be transmitted from the motor 130 through the speed changing device 114 and belt 67 to rotate the form 22. This rotation preferably is at relatively high speed so tha loose yarns and yarn ends will stand out from the sock in a relatively taut position due to centrifugal force and to facilitate clipping. The clipping means 26 is then lowered into operative position to remove the undesirable portions of the yarn, sucking them through the tube 32 for discharge to a waste receptacle.
When the clipping and trimming step is completed, the operator tilts the treadle in the opposite direction so that the rear end 155 thereof will rise from its lower position to a position thereof above that shown in Figure 1 whereby lever 182 will be pivoted clockwise from its Figure 1 position, and whereby the clutch lever 138, through the action of spring 162, will return belt 124 to idler pulley 120, thus stopping rotation of form 22. This pivotal movement of lever 182 will cause lever 170 to be pivoted clockwise about axis 174 to open valve 152. The treadle will be held in this position long enough for the pressurized fluid to flow through pipe 106, chamber 92 and inlet 100 to create a suction in passageway 102 effective to draw the sock into this passageway and convey it through tube 104.
The treadle 154 will then be returned to its Figure 1 position as by the weight of the rear end 155 acting about axis 156 and/or by a suitable compression spring means or the like (not shown) in the valve 152 urging lever 170 to its Figure 1 position. The valve 152 will thus be closed with the transmission of power to form 22 still discontinued. The apparatus is now ready for another cycle.
The single operation described above has the following advantages over methods currently in general use by hosiery mills manufacturing floated, wrapped, or striped patterns:
(1) Eliminates preliminary cutting or slitting of floated yarns or loose yarn ends now required to be done in a separate hand operation before socks can be placed on the clipping forms now in use. This is a tedious and expensive operation and is completely eliminated by the present invention.
(2) Methods currently used require the operator to move the clipper head a great number of times over a fiat stationary form and also, to turn the form in the course of the operation so that both sides can be clipped. The present invention requires a minimum movement of the clipper heai and the tt'lrning' 'of the "form-by hand is entirel eliminated.
b'otli ha-ad I: and' in Themes-en invention'perferms these'fu etions automatically with a si-mp-le movemenadrtharoot treadle.
('4 -Metliods currently used require the operator" to retie' the hosiery in bundlesprior to -further processing.
-Th'e resentinvention eliminates this operation by depositing the hosiery in bags ready for further processing.
All of the i above/advantages r'e'sult in increased proffort on the p'art of the =-operators.
