Patented July 11, 1961 2,991,679 WEB GUIDE ATTACHMENT FOR DEFLECTING WEB WITH PECT T CUTTER FOR OBTAIN- ING BIAS CUT John F. Moran, Beverly Hills, Mo, assignor to Brooks Paper Company, St. Louis, Mo-., a corporation of Missouri Filed Aug. 10, 1956, Ser. No. $33,324; 13 Claims. (Cl; 83-443) This invention relates in general to certain new and useful improvements in methods and means for manufacturing diamond-shaped sheets of wrapping materials and the like and, more particularly, to a device which can be attached to a web-cutting machine so as to make bias cuts and thereby form four-sided non-rectangular sheets capable of being thereafter cut into diamondshaped sheets.
It is a primary object of the present invention to provide means and methods for manufacturing a plurality of diamond-shaped sheets of packaging material.
It is a further object of the present invention to provide an attachment for a web-cutting machine which permits a web of material passing through the machine to be bias cut.
Similarly, it is an object of the present invention to provide a device which can readily be attached to a conventional web-cutting machine of the continuous-sheeter type to adapt such machine for bias-cutting.
It is also an object of the present invention to provide a bias-cutting attachment of the type stated which can be readily and quickly attached to a conventional webcutting machine.
It is another object of the present invention to provide a bias-cutting attachment of the type stated which can be speedily and simply adjusted to make bias cuts at various selected angles.
With the above and other objects in view, my invention resides in the novel features of form, construction, arrangement, and combination of parts presently described and pointed out in the claims.
In the accompanying drawings (three sheets)-- FIG. 1 is a side elevational view of a web-cutting machine provided with a bias-cutting attachment constructed in accordance with and embodying the present invention;
FIG. 2 is a top plan view of the web-cutting machine;
FIG. 3 is a sectional view taken along line 33 of FIG. 2;
FIG. 4 is a sectional view taken along line 44 of FIG. 3;
FIG. 5 is an exploded perspective View of the attachment, partly broken away and in section;
FIG. 6 is a perspective view of the paper guide used with the attachment;
FIG. 7 is a sectional view taken along line 77 of FIG. 6;
FIG. 8 is a fragmentary elevational view of the webcutting machine incorporating the bias-cuttin g attachment and illustrating the web being cut on a bias;
FIG. 9 is a fragmentary elevational view of the webcutting machine with the bias-cutting attachment removed and illustrating the web being cut at right angles;
FIGS. 10 and 11 are perspective views of a stack of bias cut sheets just prior to being cut to form a plurality of stacks of diamond-shaped sheets; and
FIGS. 12 and 13 are perspective views showing two and three stacks, respectively, of diamond-shaped sheets after the cutting operation has been completed.
Referring now in more detail and by reference characters to the drawings, which illustrate a preferred embodiment of the present invention, A designates a webcutting machine comprising a pair of spaced parallel side frames 1 adapted to be bolted or otherwise rigidly mounted upon the floor or other similar supporting structure and being provided with rearwardly projecting auxiliary frame-arms 2. Journaled at their ends in, and extending horizontally between, the frame-arms 2 are tensioning rolls 3, 4, and similarly journaled in, and extending between, the side frames 1 upwardly and forwardly of the tensioning rolls 3, 4, is a main feed roll 5 and a shaft 6, the latter being, in turn, positioned upwardly and forwardly with respect to the feed roll 5, and, furthermore, being provided with a plurality of laterally adjustable hold-down rollers 6. Mounted at its ends upon and extending between the side frames 1 is a channel member 7 having an angularly extending upper section 7' and a vertically extending lower section 7". Rigidly secured to the lower section 7" in downwardly spaced relation to the feed roll 5 and shaft 6 is a stationary cutterbar 8 adapted for cutting co-operation with a rotating cutter-bar 9 mounted in and forming a part of a cuttingreel 10 which is operatively carried by a shaft 11 journaled in, and extending horizontally between, the side frames 1. Beneath the stationary cutter-bar 8 is a plurality of arcuate feed-01f fingers 13 for directing the several sheets onto a conventional multi-tape sheet conveyor 14 which transfers the sheets to a conventional jog-box B. Suitably mounted on the intake side of the Web-cutting machine A are two conventional roll stands R having a plurality of rolls of sheet material, such as cellophane, for instance, arranged to form a single combined web W consisting of ten superposed, marginally registering and concurrently traveling individual webs w. Of course, more or less than ten webs w can be employed as circumstances require. The feed roll 5, shaft 6, cuttingreel 10, and conveyor 14 are driven in timed relation from powered mechanism not specifically shown in detail. In this connection, it should be noted that the Web-cutting machine A is conventional in design and, therefore, need not be shown or described in extensive detail, the present invention residing, rather, in the biascutting attachment and method of using same hereinafter described.
Rigidly secured by bolts 16 to one side frame 1, forwardly of the feed roll 5, is a pivot block 17, and similarly secured by bolts 18 to the other side frame 1 is an upstanding slide bracket 19 provided with a straight slot 20 which is preferably slightly inclined to the vertical. Rockably mounted upon the pivot block 17 is a lower bearing block 21, and adjustably secured to the slide bracket 19 by means of a bolt 22 and nut 23 is an upper bearing block 24. Extending between the lower bearing block 21 and the upper bearing block 24 is a transversely extending angularly inclined bar 25 comprising an outer rotatable member 26 which telescopingly engages an inner fixed member 27, the latter being rigidly mounted in the lower bearing block. The outer member 26 is journaled for rotation in the upper bearing block 24 and has a gear 28' rigidly secured thereto in spaced relation to the upper bearing block 24. Secured to' the slide bracket 19 through the slot 20 by means of a bolt 29 and nut 29' is a setting block 30 which normally abuts the upper surface of the upper bearing block 24. Journaled on the setting block 30' is a stub shaft 31 provided on its inner end with a large spur gear 32 adapted to mesh with the small spur gear 28. Rigidly secured to the outer end of the stub shaft 31 is a driven pulley 34 which is located in spaced relation to a drive pulley 35 mounted on the shaft 6. A drive belt 36 is trained around the pulleys 34, 35, so that power may be taken from the shaft 6, transmitted to the stub shaft 31, and then to the outer rotatable member 26 through the meshing gears 28, 32.
Rigidly secured to the angularly extending upper section 7 by means of bolts 37, 38, is a guide 39 having a horizontal beam 40 of trapezoidal cross-section and a plurality of vertical parallel plates 41, 42, 43, 44, each provided with a slot 45, 46, 47, 48, respectively, so that the plates 41, 42, 43, 44, may be moved lengthwise along the beam 40. The plates 41, 42, 43, 44, are also provided with arcuate top portions 49, 50, 51, 52, respectively, which are adapted to be positioned adjacent to and below the angularly inclined bar 25, said plates 41, 42, 43, 44, having back edges 53, 54, 55, 56, respectively, of arcuate contour so as to lie adjacent to the feed roll 5 and shaft 6. The plates 41, 42, 43, 44, also have aligned forward edges 57, 58, 59, 6%, respectively, which are slightly downwardly inclined and terminate adjacent the stationary cutterbar 8, as seen in FIG. 4. The plates4l, 42, 43, 44, are also each provided with a pair of feet 61-61, 62-62, 63-63', 64-64', respectively, the bottom surfaces of which are adapted to snugly engage the upper section 7 of the channel 7 when the guide 39 is bolted thereto.
In use, the nuts 23 and 29 are loosened and the upper bearing block 24 and setting block 30 are moved together so as to set the angularly inclined bar 25 at the desired angle. A drive belt 36 of suitable size is then trained around the pulleys 34, 35, and the nuts 23, 29', are tightened. The bolts 37, 38, which secure the horizontal beam 40 of the guide 39, are loosened and the plates 41, 42, 43, 44, are moved along the horizontal beam 40 until their arcuate top portions 49, 5t), 51, 52, are adjacent to the angularly inclined bar 25. The bolts 37, 38, are then tightened so as to hold the plates 41, 42, 43, 44, in position.
A plurality of separate continuous webs w, preferably of equal width and arranged in marginal registration, are withdrawn from the roll stands R and are trained around the tensioning rolls 3, 4, and brought into facewise marginally registered abutment for passage between the feed roll 5 and the hold-down rollers 6', which feed the combined web W along the back edges 53, 54, 55, 56, of the plates 41, 42, 43, 44, respectively, and upwardly to the power-driven angular bar 2-5. The combined web W then passes around the angularly inclined bar 25, is tilted in the manner shown in FIG. 8, and is fed downwardly along the forward edges 57, 58, 59, 60, of the plates 41, 42, 43, 44, to the cutter bars 8, 9, where the combined web W is bias cut along a line xx to form sheets s. The superposed bias cut sheets s thus formed pass forwardly along the feed-01f fingers 13 and onto the first endless conveyor 14, which, in turn, delivers the sheets s to the jog-box B.
The sheets s are delivered to the jog-box B in the form of a parallelogram as seen in FIG. 2 and may thereupon be cut by a knife K, such as shown in FIG. 10, so as to form two stacks of diamond-shaped sheets s, as seen in FIG. 12, or by a pair of conventional knives K, such as shown in FIG. 11, so as to form three stacks of diamondshaped sheets s, as seen in FIG. 13. Of course, it is to be understood that the size of the sheets s may be varied by adjusting the speed of rotation of the cutting-reel upon which is secured the rotating cutter-bar 9. Thus, if it is desired to form diamond-shaped sheets s, the length of sheets s will be twice the width, and, similarly, if it is desired to form diamond-shaped sheets s", the length of sheets s will be three times the width.
If desired, the angularly inclined bar 25, the setting block 30, and the guide 39 may be removed from the webcutting machine A, in which case the combined web W is fed from between the feed roll 5 and hold-down rollers 6 directly to the cutter-bar 8 and the combined web W is conventionally cut at right angles along the line x'x', as seen in FIG. 9.
It should be understood that changm and modifications in the form, construction, arrangement, and combination of the several parts of the apparatus and in the several steps of the method may be made and substituted for those herein shown and described without departing from the nature and principle of my invention.
