SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 333,97 6, dated January 5, 1886.
Application'filed January 3, 1885. Serial No. 151,894. (No model.) Patented in Germany June 11, 1884, No. 29,657.
To all whom it may concern.-
.Be it known that I, J OHANN GERHART STROTHOFF, J r., a citizen of the free town of Bremen, and residing at Bremen, Germany, have invented certain Improvements in Cigar- Machines, (for which I have obtained a German patent, No. 29,657, June 11, 1884,) of which the following is a specification.
Hy invention consists of certain improvements in the construction of machines for forming the filling of cigars and for wrapping the same, as well as molding or shaping the wrapped cigar, my improvements being designed with the view of providing a simple machine by which cigars may be made without the aid of skilled labor.
In the accompanying drawings, Figure 1 is a side view of myimproved machine. Fig. 2 is a plan view. Fig. 3 is a vertical section through the feeding-table and wrapping-rollers. larged scale. Fig. 5 is an end view of one of the end frames in which the wrapping-rollers are mounted. Fig. 6 is a similar view of the other end frame; and Fig. 7 is a diagram illustrating the manner of separating the rollers which constitute the wrapping-chamber.-
a b c is a feeding-table,which is mounted on pivots h on the frame 5 of the machine, Figs. 2 and 3, so as to allow of aslight tilting or oscillating motion of the table on its pivots to bring the edge of the table above or below the point where the tobacco is to be fed into the wrapping-rollers.
The operator stands near the side b of the tilting feed-table,while at the opposite side,c, of the table are rollers d e g p 1' 0, six in the present instance, which are arranged in a circle and are mounted in bearingsat one end in the end frame, 7t, and at the other end in hearings in the framel Z. The portion k of one end frame is hinged to the portion it, while the portion Z of the other end frame is adapted to have a motion toward and from its corresponding portion, Z, by moving it up and down on the guide-rods v 11, Figs. 6 and 7. The rollers are set at a slight distance apart so as not to be in contact with each other, but yet not leaving sufficient space for the escape of the tobacco of which the cigar is to be made, and one half of the rollers have their bearings in the movable portions 7c Z of the frames,
Fig. 4 isan end view drawn to an en-' while the other half have their bearings in the fixed portions. Consequently, by lifting up the upper part,l,of one of the end frames and tilting the upper portion,k',0f the other frame on its hinged partthe upper set of rollers, d r q, may be separated from the lower set to facilitate the introduction of the tobacco of which the cigar is to be made into the wrap pingchamber formed by the rollers. The journal of each of the rollers within the end frame, k, carries a small pinion, as shown in Fig. 4, which gears into acommon spur-wheel to which a rotary motion is imparted by suitable means, a grooved pulley and cord being illustrated in the drawings for this purpose. Through the center of the spur-wheel and through the center of the wrapping-chamber constituted by the rollers above described passes a rod, 01, and over this is a movable sleeve, m, adapted to be used at the proper moment to push the'rolled cigar into the two or three part mold w s. The upper part or parts of this mold may be lifted up or pressed down by any suitable means, and a cutter, t, as shown in Fig. 1, may be provided on the end of the mold to cut off the projecting end of a cigar, which is then thrown into a suitable receptacle, u.
In using this machine the operator as I have said stands at the edge of the table and tilts the latter on its hinges to move the edge adjacent to the rollers downward, as shown in Fig. 3, to bring the tobacco thereon into a position opposite the feed-rollers, ready to be introduced. He then introduces this tobacco which is to constitute the filling into the forming chamber between the rollers, and a rotary motion being imparted to these latter all in the same direction by the means above described, the tobacco will be rolled into shape, and then the leaf or wrapper which is to formthe cover is fed in over the edge cof the feed-table after its edge has been provided with a glutinous material, so that when the cover has been wrapped around the filling by the rollers it will adhere thereto. After the required quantity of tobacco to form the filling has been introduced into the wrapping-chamber the oscillating table is tilted back to raise its edge above the point of feeding of the tobacco to the rollers, until the tobacco being rolled is formed and pushed out,when the table is tilted forward again as before, to bring its edge below the point of feeding the tobacco into the rollers.
If wet tobacco is being worked the tubular sleeve m is employed to push off the wrapped cigar, as above described, into the open mold w s, but. if dry tobacco is being used the sleeve m may be dispensed with and the rod n made movable longitudinally to push the cigar into I the mold.
The hollow space formed in the interior of the wrapped cigar by the rod it while wrapping in the wrapping-chamber is practically obliterated by the subsequent pressing of the cigars in the mold and in the boxes in packing them.
The wrapping-rollers d e p q r 0 may be of any suitable form convenient for the shape of the cigar to be made.
I claim as my invention-- Y 1. The combination of the circle of rollers constituting the wrappingchamber with a frame and an oscillating table centrally pivoted to the frame to permit the edge of the table to be brought above or below the point of 25 feeding the tobacco to the rollers.
2. The combination of a feed-table and circle of rollers constituting the wrapping-chamher with a central rod, n, and the sleeve m, surrounding said rod, as and for the purpose set forth.
3. The combination of the frame and the circle of rollers constituting the wrapping-chamber with the sliding upper part, Z, of the frame and hinged portion 10, some of the rollers having their bearings in said portions 70 Z,an d the other rollers in the fixed portion of the frame.
In testimony whereof I have signed my name to this specification in the presence of two sub scribing witnesses.
