REEL PLAY-OFF STAND Filed Dec. 1, 1958 2 Sheets-Sheet 2 INVENTOR. RQBEIPT' 5. 19/27 United States Patent 3,069,107 REEL PLAY-OFF STAND Robert E. Hirt, Hanover, Pa., assiguor to Continental Copper & Steel Industries, Inc., Hanover Wire Cloth Division, Hanover, Pa., a corporation of Delaware Filed Dec. 1, 1958, Ser. No. 777,334 8 Claims. (Cl. 242-79) The present invention relates to a reel play-off stand and it particularly relates to a reel play-off stand which may be utilized for carrying wire to be used in connection with a wire drawing operation.

It is among the objects of the present invention to provide a reel play-off stand which may readily be utilized with any dimensions or width of reel with wire and which will permit ready association of a reel of wire to be drawn with a wire drawing apparatus or wire drawing apparatus or wire drawing mill and which can be readily loaded or unloaded with a minimum of manual labor and lifting equipment.

Another object is to provide a reel play-off stand which may be readily loaded and unloaded and in which assurance is had that the wire will be fed in proper fashion without over-feed to the wire drawing equipment.

Still further objects and advantages will appear in the more detailed description set forth below, -it being understood, however, that this more detailed description is given by way of illustration and explanation only and not by way of limitation, since various changes therein may be made by those skilled in the art without departing from the scope and spirit of the present invention.

In accomplishing the above objects, it has been found most satisfactory to provide a stand with side support members which carry in elevated position the side pivot mounts for the reel.

The stand is provided with ramps at the load-on point thereof so that the reel may be readily rolled up onto and in the sockets with there being provided two ramps adjacent the base, one for each of the side flanges, to permit the entire reel to be elevated and with there being another ramp to engage the trunnions or pivot studs of the reel and to permit the same to be rolled onto the sockets into which it is received during the unreeling operation.

In addition, the forward part of the reel is provided with spaced side brake arms pivotally mounted on the base and with a roller shaft at the forward part thereof under which the wire passes on its way to the drawing up onto the stand and to be dropped into the recess pivot mounts or bearing blocks with the wire then being pulled out under a bearing mounted shaft on its way to the drawing mills or to any other operation that may be desired, such as respooling.

To release the reel .either before or after the wire has been exhausted the brake arms may be moved downwardly so that the 'brake shoe will press upwardly on the side flanges, lifting the trunnion pins or arbor shaft from its bearing sockets.

Thereupon the reel may be rolled in reverse direction vention consists of the novel construction, combination 3,069,107 Patented Dec. 18, 1962 and arrangement of parts as hereinafter more specifically described, and illustrated in the accompanying drawings, wherein is shown an embodiment of the invention, but it is to be understood that changes, variations and modifications can be resorted to which fall within the scope of the claims hereunto appended.

In the drawings wherein like reference characters denote corresponding parts throughout the several views:

FIG. 1 is a side elevational view showing the reel in position on the stand with the wire being unreeled therefrom.

FIG. 2 is a front elevational view of the trunnion or arbor shaft arrangement with the drive pin connection for driving the reels.

FIG. 3 is a top elevational view of the arrangement as shown in FIG. 1.

FIG. 4 is a perspective view of the reel play-off stand without the reel in position thereon taken from the side where the wire is taken ofi.

FIG. 5 is a perspective view of the reel play-off stand from the side where the stand is loaded.

FIGURES 1 to 3 show a stand A carrying the reel B. The reel B is provided with a coil of wire C which is being unwound as indicated at D and moving to a Wire drawing mill fed into a resp'ooler or to some other piece of equipment.

The reel. itself is provided with the side flanges E which are mounted upon an arbor F carrying the trunnions G and the drive pin connection H.

The base structure A is provided with a low ramp J for the wheel flanges E and with a high ramp K for the trunnions G to enable them to be rolled into the pivot or trunnion sockets L.

The lower ramps J are permanently mounted at their forward ends onto the stand A and particularly the cross member 21 as by welding and they are sufliciently wide to engage the side flanges E.

The side flanges E first roll along the ramps I and then the trunnions G roll along the ramps K by the hori-,

zontal portions 22 until the trunnions engage the sockets L without any power or lever applications.

The brake arm arrangement M is provided with a bearing' mounted roller shaft N and with the brake shoes P.

Referring specifically to the stand A there is a base 10 which may rest upon the floor or be mounted upon a foundation and this base on each side of the reel B is provided with the upwardly extending structural arms 11 which are connected by and terminate in the horizontal cross member 12 at their upper ends.

These members carry the bearing blocks 13 having the bearing recesses L. These bearing blocks 13 have rear portions 14, the top of which coincide with the center line of the bearing to facilitate loading and unloading, and forward portions 15 to hold the trunnions G in position as the reel is turned in the direction 16.

The arbor structure shown in FIG. 2 has the central cylindrical portion F with the side flanges 17 against which the main reel flanges E are pressed with the drive pin H being mounted on an extension or shoulder 18, which pin H will fit into a recess on one of the side flanges E. This will assure that the arbor structure FH, as shown in FIG. 2, Will revolve as shown in the bearing blocks 13, together with the reel flanges E as the wire is unwound or pulled from the reel.

The reel flanges E are normally rolled upon the ramp I which has an oblique portion 19 and an elevated flat portion 20 supported upon the members 21. When the flanges reach the top 20 of the ramp J the trunnions G will move onto the horizontal portion 22 of the top ramp K. One of these ramps K is positioned at each side of the reel and it has an upwardly extending portion 23 from the leg '11 which supports the outer end a of the horizontal portion 22 which extends into the bearing block 13, as indicated in FIG. 1.

The brake arm structure M consists of two members as shown in FIG. 3 which are pivotally mounted at 35 on the upwardly extending flange members 36. The forward ends of the arms M carry the shaft 37 for the hearing mounted shaft or roller N under which the wire pases as it is being unreeled.

The weight of the arms M and the roller N may be such as to hold the wire down and control the tension on the wire as it moves upwardly as indicated at D in PEG. 1. The arms will be provided with stops 40.

The rearwardly extending arms 38 carry the brake shoes P which will contact the flanges E and slow the reel 13 if the tension is released and the roller members or bearing member N is dropped.

This reel play-oif stand, as shown in FIGS. 1 to 3, may be fabricated for use with 30 reels as well as any other diameter and width of reel.

To load the stand the flanges are rolled up on the ramps J and then the trunnions are rolled onto the ramps K and then onto the recesses L in the bearing blocks 13.

The leading edges of the bearing blocks as indicated at 14 will cut at a horizontal level the same as the center line of the bearing to facilitate loading and unloading and the wire is then pulled under the bearing mounted shaft on roller N as it is pulled into the drawing mill or other mechanism.

As the wire at D is unrolled, the brake arm M will raise, lowering the brake shoe P from the reel.

However, when slack occurs, indicating that the wire is being fed too rapidly, the brake arm M will drop, permitting the brake shoe P to contact the flanges E and brake the reel.

To unload the reel, a slight downward pressure applied by the foot upon the brake arms M will lift the reel from the recesses L and permit it to be rolled first reversely over the ramp K, and then reversely over the ramp J, until it is completely released from the reel playoff stand.

The pin H fitting in the flange B will assure that the arbor structure as shown in FIG. 2 will revolve in the bearing blocks as the wire is drawn off from the reel.

While there has been herein described a preferred form of the invention, it should be understoo dthat the same may be altered in details and in relative arrangement of parts within the scope of the appended claims.
