June 18, 1963 w. c. ROBERTS DAMPENING MECHANISM FOR LITHOGRAPHIC PRINTING PRESS Filed April 6, 1959 3,094,065 Patented June 18, 1963 ice 3,094,065 DAMPENING MECHANISM FOR LITHOGRAPHIC PRINTING PRESS Webster C. Roberts, South Euclid, Ohio, assignor to Harris-Intertype Corporation, Cleveland, Ohio, a corporation of Delaware Filed Apr. 6, 1959, Ser. No. 864,197 12 Claims. (Cl. 101-148) This invention relates to means for applying ink repellent solution to the surface of a lithographic plate mounted on a cylinder of a lithographic printing press.

The primary object of this invention is to provide a simple, inexpensive dampener for a printing unit of a lithographic printing press.

More specifically, the object of this invention is to provide a simple means for varying the quantity of dampening solution supplied through a portion of an inking system to the plate of a lithographic printing press.

Other objects and advantages will be apparent from the following description in which reference is made to the accompanying drawings.

In the drawings:

FIG. 1 is a simplified elevational view of a lithographic printing press unit embodying one form of the invention.

FIGS. 2, 3, and 4 are fragmentary clevational views similar to FIG. 1 illustrating alternative forms of the invention.

According to the invention, the first one of a plurality of ink form rollers of a lithographic printing unit is contacted by a dampening roller which is provided with means for adjusting the speed thereof to control the quantity of ink repellent solution ultimately applied to a lithographic plate on a plate cylinder of the unit.

Referring now to the drawings, a plate cylinder of a lithographic printing unit has the usual lithographic plate 11 mounted thereon by any conventional plate clamp means (not shown).

An inker 1 includes an ink fountain 13, a fountain roller 14, an oscillating ductor roller 15, ink form rollers 16, 17, 18 and 19 and a train of rollers intermediate the duct/or roller 15 and the ink form rollers 16-19. The train of rollers includes a bridge of rollers connecting the first pair 16 and 17 of the form rollers with the second pair 18 and 19. The rollers in the train connecting the ink fountain with the bridge contact the bridge at a point closer to the first pair 16 and 17 of form rollers than to the second pair 18 and 19, to supply the heavier charge of ink to the first pair as described in US. Pat. 2,448,975 of Harrold ct al. The ink form rollers 16-19 and those other rollers in the ink train which are similarly illustrated in the drawings are customarily made of some ink receptive resilient rubber or composition material. The fountain roller 14 and vibrator rollers V of the ink train are conventionally metallic and each has a surface which is preferably of steel or steel plated with copper or other ink receptive material. The vibrator rollers V" reciprocate in an axial direction in the usual manner to provide a lateral smoothening action of the ink as it travels down the ink train toward the plate.

A pan roller 20 of a dampening means D" dips into solution 21 contained in a pan 22, and runs in contact with the ink form roller 16, which is the first form roller engaged by a given line across the plate 11 as the cylinder 10 rotates. The pan roller 20 may be driven by an auxiliary motor 23 through either a chain and sprocket or a V-belt drive. The roller 20 preferably has an aluminum or hard chrome surface which is desensitized by any known method to make it receptive to the ink repellent solution while at the same time maintaining it ink rejecting. Such a roller is readily distinguishable from a brush or loop type roller which has an interrupted surface made up of a multiplicity of brush or loop elements. Intermediate the motor 23 and the pan roller 20, any conventional means may be provided for varying the speed of the pan roller 20 as it rotates in contact with the first ink form roller 16. For example, the motor may drive through a gear reducer 28 which has a speed adjustment means illustrated simply by a handle 29. Or, if a V-belt drive is used, one of the belt pulleys may have an adjustable diameter. Preferably, the speed of the pan roller 20 is substantially less than the surface speed of the ink form roller 16, but may, depending on the speed of the press, the ink-water balance and numerous other variables, be almost any speed found desirable. By varying the speed of the pan roller 20, I am able to control the ink-water balance and can therefore control the quantity of solution 21 traveling from the pan 22 to the surface of the plate 11. If desired, water stops in the form of a. plurality of resilient blades 12 may be positioned across the roller 20 and pressed against that roller with suflicient force to squeegee the solution from the roller to provide an additional control of the quantity of solution. By varying the pressure of certain ones of the water stops 12, lateral control of water distribution can be had for those printing jobs requiring the same.

FIG. 2 illustrates another form of dampening mechanism embodying the invention. In this embodiment, a vibrator roller 24 runs in contact with the ink form roller 16. The vibrator roller 24 takes the place of the roller 20 of FIG. 1 insofar as the control of the quantity of ink repellent solution is concerned. The vibrator roller may be of the same material and is also provided with any similar drive means and control means as illustrated and described for roller 20 of FIG. 1. The pan 22 in the FIG. 2 embodiment has a pan roller 25 which dips into the solution 21 and preferably rotates in the direction of the arrow. A cylindrical brush roller 26 runs in contact with the pan roller 25 and flicks moisture from the pan roller in minute droplet form toward and onto the adjustable speed vibrator roller 24. As the pan roller 25 rotates, it picks up a thin film of solution from the pan and presents it into position to be engaged and flicked by the bristles of the brush roller 26 with an impclling force sufiicient to drive the droplets created by the flicking action toward and onto the roller 24.

The FIG. 3 embodiment is similar to FIG. 2, but this dampener utilizes a different type of means for getting the ink repellent solution to the adjustable speed vibrator roller 24. The means for carrying the liquid from the roller 25 to the roller 24 is a conventional ductor roller 27 which in this instance has an absorbent covering of molleton or similar material. Both rollers 24 and 25 in the PEG. 3 embodiment are preferably ink rejecting and water receptive so as to be kept clean of ink. If desired, a mo1leton-covered storage roller 31 may run in contact with roller 24 to supply that roller with dampening solution for those short intermittent periods while the ductor roller 27 is away from roller 24.

Referring now to the FIG. 4 embodiment, I here utilize a molleton-covered roller 32 in the place of the ductor 27 of the FIG. 3 embodiment. Roller 32 is mounted for pressure adjustment against pan roller 25, so that the quantity of solution reaching the plate 11 may be controlled in this manner as well as by controlling the speed of roller 24.

Referring once again to FIG. 1, I prefer to operate my mechanism in the following manner. When a printing job is to be commenced, I first start feeding ink from the fountain 13 down to the form rollers 16-19 with the form rollers being in their dotted line positions, i.e.,

out of contact with the surface of the plate 11. At this time I also start operation of the pan roller at an approximate preselected speed set in accordance to the type of job to be printed. Customarily, inkers are provided with means for automatically moving the ink form rollers 1619 between their full and dotted-line positions. For example, with the press running and the form rollers in contact with the plate, should something occur in the printing operation which requires the printing to be discontinued, a conventional means is automatically operated to move the rollers 16-19 to their dotted-line positions and the press is simultaneously tripped to slow speed. Since, however, the ink repellent solution must keep the surface of the plate 11 wet during the short period normally required to correct the malfunction, the first form roller 16 must be kept in contact with the plate and the solution must continue to be fed from the pan 22 to the plate 11. Therefore, I desire that rolls 17, 18 and 19 be operated in the manner of known presses as heretofore, but provide that the roller 16 be disconnected from automatic operation and be normally spring-urged toward its dotted-line position of FIG. 1.

Returning again to starting up of the printing operation (the ink form rollers 1619 in their dotted-line positions and the inker I inked, and the dampener D in its dotted-line position and dampened), I first move the dampening unit leftwardly as viewed in FIG. 1 toward but not fully into its full-line position, until the roller 20 engages the roller 16 while the roller 16 is still in its dotted-line position. This provides the roller 16 with both ink and a surface layer of ink repellent solution from the pan 22, due to contact of roller 16 by the roller 20 which is dipping in the pan. I then move the dampening unit D" the rest of the way to its full-line position of FIG. 1 until the roller 20 pushes against the springurged roller 16 to cause the roller 16 to engage and run in contact with the plate 11. I may then let the cylinder make a few revolutions with only the form roller 16 in contact with the surface of the plate. During this time, both ink and water are being transferred to the plate simultaneously. After these few revolutions, I throw the remaining ink form rollers 17, 18 and 19 against the plate 11 either manually or automatically to fully ink the plate so that printing of sheets may now begin. At any later time during the printing operation when the press is subsequently tripped to slow speed, only the rollers 17, 18 and 19 will move to their dotted-line positions and rollers 16 and 20 will remain in their respective full-line positions.

While I have described the drive means for the variable speed roller 20 or 24 as being a separate drive, obviously the drive can come directly from the printing press itself, and can incorporate any kind of speed adjusting means. Furthermore, in each embodiment, the variable speed roller is preferably movable with the other rollers 2f the dampener as a unit toward and away from roller Various modifications may be made in the details of the construction Without departing from the spirit and scope of the invention.

Having described my invention, I claim:
