Filed Mar. 31, 1965, Ser. No. 444,177 18 Claims. (Cl. 101-316) ABSTRACT OF THE DISCLOSURE A marking device including a die member having a stem extending therefrom wherein a sleeve member is slidable on the stem and a percussion member is arranged within the sleeve member to impact on the stem when the sleeve is moved a predetermined distance on the stem to impart a marking force to the die member.

This invention relates to marking stamps and more particularly relates to hand stamping devices employed to print intelligence in the form of numbers, letters and/or other characters on papers and records.

Hand stamps are commonly used in the business world and are widely used to print dates on received correspondence, print price figures on tags and articles, and many different types of intelligence on various and diverse articles and papers. Many of such stamps merely comprise a block or die carrying a resilient pad thereon with the desired intelligence in relief. A handle is usually attached to the block. Such stamps are used by alternately hitting an ink pad and the material to be marked. Some stamps have a fixed intelligence thereon, while some have changeable figures for dates, prices, etc. However, in all cases, they are usually operated by alternately hitting an ink pad and the material to be marked.

In such operation, the stamping pressure, both to ink the stamp and print the intelligence thereon depends upon the user. If the pressure exerted is too light, suificient ink may not be picked up by the stamp and/or the stamped intelligence may be faint. Conversely, if the pressure exerted is too great, too much ink may be picked up and/or the stamped intelligence may be blurred.

Accordingly, the present invention provides a hand stamp including means for predetermining both the inking and marking pressures. A hand stamp embodying the invention may be lightly placed for inking and marking and thereafter actuated to have a selected pressure applied to the block. This is accomplished by providing a mechanism including a percussive element which delivers a blow to the printing blockwhen the handle of the stamp is depressed a predetermined distance, which blow provides the desired inking or printing pressure on the face of the stamp.

An object of this invention is to provide a new and improved hand operated stamping or mar-king device.

Another object of this invention is to provide a new and improved stamping or marking device wherein the inking and marking pressure is predetermined.

Another object of this invention is to provide a new and improved stamping or marking device including a slidable handle which is effective to produce a percussive blow on the stamp block to, in turn, produce the desired inking and marking pressure.

Another object of the invention is to provide a new and improved stamping or marking device in which the printing or marking face may be lightly placed on an ink pad or material to be marked and the necessary printing pressure applied by sliding movement of the handle upon a stem afiiX-ed to the stamp block.

The features of the invention which are believed to be novel are set forth with particularity and distinctly claimed in the concluding portion of this specification. However, the invention both as to its organization and operation, together with further objects and advantages thereof may best be appreciated by reference to the following detailed description taken in conjunction with the drawings, in which:

The invention as embodied in a hand stamp comprises a die or block member 11 having a rubber stamping pad 12 bearing the desired intelligence thereon affixed to the bottom surface thereof. A stem member 13 is affixed to and extends from the other end of die member 11. Slidably mounted on stem 13 is a sleeve i14 which receives thereon a handle 15. Preferably grooves or tracks 16 are longitudinally defined in stem 13 and sleeve member 14 is provided with indentations 17 which ride in grooves or tracks 16. The grooves 16 limit motion of sleeve 14 on stem 13 in one direction and a block 18 may be provided to limit motion of sleeve I14 and handle 15 in the opposite direction.

Stem 13 defines therein a longitudinally extending spring cavity 19 receiving a reset spring 20 whose function is hereinafter described. Defined in the upper end, as illustrated, of stem 13 is a seat 21 in the form of a recessed shoulder. Seat 21 is adapted to receive therein a percussion element in the form of a cam member 22 which is normally disposed in an eccentric position with respect to seat 21. Cam 22 is also urged away from seat 21 under the bias of reset spring 20. Disposed within a pocket 23in sleeve 14 is a helical spring 24 having its end helix 25 eccentric to the axis thereof. End helix 25 is disposed about a shank or neck portion 26 of cam 22 and normally holds cam 22 in a position eccentric with respect to the axis of seat 21. Cam 22 has a frusto-conical camming surface 27 arranged to be acted upon by a camming surface 28 defined within sleeve 14 and a base arranged to be seated on an annular end surface 30* of stem 13. The opposite end of spring 24 seats upon a cap member 29 at the end of sleeve 14 and is enclosed by handle 15.

To operate the described device, handle 15 is depressed in the direction of arrow A, FIG. 2. This causes sleeve 14 to move downwardly on stem 13 which, in turn, compresses spring 24 and stores energy therein. As sleeve 14 moves further down stem 13 a predetermined distance,

half section of ancam surface 28 within sleeve 14 will bear against cam surface 27 of cam element 22 forcing it towards a position in which its axis is coaxial with the axis of seat 21. When this occurs, the bottom surface of cam 22 is moved laterally off the edge surface 3t) of stem 13 and the energy stored in spring 24 is released and causes cam 22 to strike seat 21 with a percussive blow and assume the position shown in FIG. 3. As handle 15 is further depressed it will bottom on block 18 thereby delivering a subsequent printing force on die member 11, and then the depressive force is removed. When the depressive force is removed, and the device lifted from the object it engages, the energy stored in reset spring 21 by virtue of compression thereof acts against the bottom of member 22 moving it upward and through spring 24 raising handle 15 and sleeve 14. As cam 22 moves from cam seat 21 it is again positioned eccentrically of cam seat 21 and another cycle of operation may be commenced.

It may thus be seen that cam 22 initially acts as a reaction member for spring 24 until a predetermined amount of energy has been stored in spring 24, at which time cam surface 28 engages cam surface 27 and moves cam 22 to a position which is essentially central with respect to or in axial alignment with seat 21. Thereafter, cam 22 acts as a percussion element and is driven against seat 21 as the energy stored in spring 24 is released. Cam 22 then delivers an axially directed blow to stem 13 which is transmitted to die member 11. Reset spring 211 is chosen to be of lesser stiffness than percussion spring 24 so that it does not affect the impact of percussion member 22 on seat 21.

The percussive blow delivered to stem 13 by member 22 produces a predetermined printing force on die member 11 and the pad 12 carried thereon to thereby exert a predetermined pressure between the pad 12 and the object upon which it is to act, either an inking pad or an object to be printed upon. A further force is exerted on die member 11 when the sleeve 14 bottoms on block 18.

In another embodiment of the invention illustrated in FIGS. 6 and 7, the seat 21 in stem 13 is further recessed below edge surface 30 and receives therein a percussive member 33 having pivoted thereto a cam lever 34 which is biased towards the position illustrated by a spring 35. Cam lever 34 includes a portion 36 which overlies end surface 30 of stem 13 and normally prevents movement of percussion member 33 to cam seat 21. In the embodiment shown in FIGS. 6 and 7, the cap member 29 carries thereon a cam-actuating member 37 which upon depression thereof engages surface 38 of cam lever 34 and rotates it clockwise to release surface or edge 30 of sleeve 14. Prior to this, as handle 15 is depressed, spring 24 is compressed storing energy therein and spring 24 in compression reacts against percussion member 33. When cam lever 34 is rotated clockwise, as described, the energy stored in spring 24 is allowed to be released and it drives percussion member 33 against seat 21, hence, transmitting the released energy to stem 13 and exerting a printing force on die member 11. Again, a second blow is delivered to die member 11 when sleeve 14 and handle 15 thereon bottom.

Another embodiment of the invention is shown in FIGS. 8 and 9 wherein cam seat 21 is also further recessed below edge surface 30 to receive therein a percussion member having pivotally mounted thereto two cam levers 41 and 42 disposed at diametrically opposed portions of percussion member 40 and which are biased outwardly by means of a spring 43 so that surfaces 44 thereof overhang the end surface 30' of stem 13. Percussion member 40 provides a reacting spring seat for spring 24.

In operation, when handle 15 and sleeve 14 are depressed and ride along stem 13, spring 24 is compressed thereby storing energy therein until cam surface 28 on sleeve 14 engages the inclined upper edges of cam levers 41 and 42. At this time the cam levers are rotated toward each other until the overhanging surfaces 44 clear surface 39 of sleeve 14. Then there is nothing to hold percussion member 40 and the energy in spring 24 produces rapid expansion of the spring which drives percussion member 40 against seat 21 in a manner previously described.

Still another embodiment of the invention is shown in FIG. 10 which includes a percussion member 50 having a passage 51 therethrough which receives a pair of pins 52 and 53, biased outwardly by a spring 54 so that the pins 52 and 53 rest on surface 3% of stem 13. Percussion spring 24 reacts against the top surface of percussion member 5%. The ends of pins 52 and 53 engaging the inner walls of sleeve 14 are slightly rounded. Thus, when sleeve 14 and handle 15 are depressed camming surfaces 28 will engage the ends of pins 52 and 53 and move them inwardly in passage 51 until they clear the surface 30 of sleeve 14. At this time spring 24 expands and drives percussion member 50 against seat 21 thereby delivering a printing blow to die 11. Spring 54 is relatively weak and serves only to position pins 52 and 53 on surface 30. The force exerted by spring 54 is insufficient to cause the pins 52 and 53 to bind on the vertical walls leading to seat 21 in stem 13. Upon completion of the printing blow reset spring 20 pushes percussion member 50 out of the seat 21 and the pins 52 and 53 will thereafter exit from passage 51 and again engage surfaces 30' at which time the device is ready for another stamping operation.

Means are also provided for adjusting the compression of percussion spring 24 and as shown in FIG. 11 may comprise a cap 60 on the end of sleeve 14 which rotatably mounts a threaded bolt 61 therein. Threadably received on bolt 61 is a cap 62 providing a seat 63 for spring 24. Cap 62 is positioned by rotation of bolt 61 to thereby vary the longitudinal position of spring seat 63 within sleeve 14. Such adjustment varies the precompression or tension of spring 24.

The tension of spring 24 is so selected that as the handle 15 and sleeve 14 are depressed to ink pad 12, a proper force or impact is applied to die 11 through the impact of the percussion member on seat 21. This insures proper inking of the pad 12 or rather the intelligence thereon. When the operator lifts the stamp from the ink pad the handle retracts under the bias of reset spring 20 with respect to stem 13. To print, the operator places the die 11 on an object, then pushes down on the handle to make the proper impression and the percussion member is released and moves through the expansion of percussion spring 24 to deliver a blow to stem 13 and provide the proper printing pressure on pad 12. When sleeve 14 buttoms on block 18, the stamp is lifted, and spring 24 resets the percsusion member.

Use of a device embodying the invention substantially eliminates the possibility or probability of smearing a legend or other intelligence to be stamped due to too much pressure, or striking the paper or other object too hard a blow with the stamp. Additionally, the action of the percussion member in striking seat 21 provides an audible sound or click which informs the operator that the proper inking or stamping pressure has been applied.

It may thus be seen that the objects of the invention set forth as well as those made apparent from the foregoing description are efficiently attained. Modifications to the disclosed embodiments of the invention, as well as other embodiments thereof, may occur to those skilled in the art which do not depart from the spirit and scope of the invention.
