United States Patent Olhce 3,416,347 Patented Dec. 17, 1968 3,416,347 SLITTING AND EDGE CONDITIONING MEANS Joseph S. Walsh, Fairview Park, and Frank Szel, Cleveland, Ohio, assignors to The Yoder Company, Cleveland, Ohio, a corporation of Ohio Filed Oct. 29, 1965, Ser. No. 505,709 15 Claims. (Cl. 72203) ABSTRACT OF THE DISCLOSURE Apparatus and method for forming electrical strip and the like which includes a pinch slitter partially severing such strip while simultaneously partially forming the edges, such strip being drawn under controlled tension through the slitter between adjustable pressure pads, and then edge conditioning the split strip by drawing such strip through an edge conditioner, the latter including a plurality of edge conditioning rolls each independently urged into contact with the strip edge, such strip in the edge conditioner passing through pressure pads having lateral floating movement.

This invention relates to novel means for slitting and separating coiled strip into a plurality of relatively narrow strips and thereafter conditioning the edges of each thus formed strip to achieve rounding thereof.

In conventional coil strip slitting methods and apparatus, the strip is slit by means of circular blades which penetrate the thickness of the traveling coil thereby to sever the coil into two or more relatively narrow strips. The edges of the thus formed strip are generally flat and burring is unavoidably formed on such edges. Where the strip material is to be used in electrical applications, for example in the making of strip-wound electrical coils, the fiat and burred edges are clearly undesirable. The flat edges and sharp corners have a relatively high voltage gradient thereby creating stresses in the insulation and substantially reducing coil life. The flat edges and burring are also detrimental to the uniform packing of the strip and the subsequent application of insulating material. Attempts to condition the flat edges formed by present slitting techniques to improve the use thereof in electrical applications of the type noted have not met with any degree of success.

With the above in mind, a primary object of the present invention is to provide a novel means for and method of partially slitting and thereafter separating the strip coil into a plurality of narrower strips, and then edge conditioning each of the thus formed strips to form rounded edges having predetermined, reasonably true radii.

A further object of the present invention is to provide a novel means for and method of slitting metal strip material comprising first partially severing the material on both sides thereof, with such partial severing forming generally V-shaped grooves in the top and bottom of the strip material, and thereafter completely severing the strip material by essentially tearing the same in the partially severed areas thereof.

A still further object of the present invention is to provide a novel edge conditioning unit comprising a plurality of edge conditioning rolls mounted adjacent each edge of the strip traveling through the unit, with each conditioning roll being formed with an edge-engaging surface generally complemental to the desired radius of the strip edge, the rolls resiliently engaging the opposed strip edges for rounding the same.

Another object of the invention is to provide means associated with the slitting and edge conditioning units for supporting and vertically controlling the strip while traveling through the slitter and edge conditioner units to provide optimum conditions for strip formation and edge conditioning.

Yet another object of the present invention is to provide an edge conditioning unit wherein the conditioning rolls and means for vertically controlling the strip travel ing through the unit are laterally movable to accommodate lateral deviation of the strip as it passes through the unit.

These and other objects and advantages of the present invention will become apparent as the following description proceeds.

To the accomplishment of the foregoing and related ends, the invention, then, comprises the features hereinafter fully described and particularly pointed out in the claims, the following descripition and the annexed drawings setting forth in detail certain illustrative embodiments of the invention, these being indicative, however, of but a few of the various ways in which the principle of the invention may be employed.

FIG. 10 is a schematic view of the strip traveling through the edge conditioning unit, and

FIG. 11 is a schematic perspective view of the finally conditioned strip.

Referring now in more detail to the drawings, wherein like parts are indicated by like reference numerals, and initially to the entire process line shown in FIG. 1, the feed strip S is unwound from a conventional drag-type uncoiler 10 under roll 11 and through an edge guide sensor unit 12. By Way of example but not limitation, the strip material S may comprise an aluminum strip approximately .030 inch thick and 14 inches in width, although it will be understood, and will become apparent as the description proceeds, that strip materials other than that mentioned could be used having thicknesses other than that indicated.

The strip S after passing through the edge guide sensor 12 passes through an entry bridle unit 13 having a top roll 14 and a bottom drive roll 15. The entry bridle unit is supported, as are the next several units mentioned, on frame 16 which is in turn mounted on the supporting surface 17.

The strip S is driven from the entry bridle unit 13 to the pinch slitter unit 18 which forms an important part of the present invention and which will be described in more detail hereinbelow when specific reference is made to FIGS. 2, 3 and 6. It will sufiice here merely to briefly note that at the slitting station the strip S is vertically scored along transversely spaced lines on the top and bottom thereof, with the strip being thereafter severed along such scored lines during passage through a strip separating unit 19. In accordance with the present invention, two relatively narrower strips, between 6 and 7 inches in width, are formed from the original feed strip, with relatively narrow scrap pieces which include the opposed edges of the original feed strip being also formed and wound on a pair of scrap winders 20 disposed, in the form shown, above the strip separating unit.

The thus formed strips next pass through a stretcher leveler unit 21 which functions effectively to de-camber each of the metal strips. From the stretcher leveler unit 21 the strips pass respectively to tension bridle roll units 22 and 23, each of which includes a load measuring roll 24 and a drive roll 25. The latter provide the tension in the strips between the entry bridle unit 13 and the units 22 and 23, with the rolls 24 being provided with means to measure such tension for setting thereof as desired.

The now vertically spaced strips S pass from the tension bridle roll units 22 and 23 to edge conditioning units 26 of identical construction. While passing through such units, as will be hereinafter described in more detail when particular reference is made to FIGS. 4 and 7, the strip edges are smoothed and rounded to provide a strip having the above-noted desirable characteristics.

The conditioned strips S thereafter pass through a brush and spray cleaning station 27 to clean the strips and rid the same of any undesirable material which may have adhered to the strip surfaces while passing through the previous stations. From the cleaning station 27 the strips are passed through edge flattener units 28 which insure that the thickness of the edge is restored to the approximate thickness of the rest of the strip. It will be noted that although the edge fiattener units are shown following the brush and spray cleaning station 27, the same could be mounted as well preceding such station.

Following edge flattening, the strips S pass through recoiler tension roll units 29 to driven recoilers 30 and 31, respectively. Means are preferably provided associated with the recoiler tension roll units for reading the tension between the tension bridle roll units 22 and 23 and the driven recoilers 30 and 31.

Referring now to FIGS. 2 and 3, which show the structural detail of the pinch slitter unit 18, the unit comprises a generally U-shaped frame which includes side plates 40 and 41 and a base plate 42. The side plates can be rigidly interconnected to the base plate in any suitable manner, with the latter in turn being suitably rigidly attached to the supporting frame 16. To additionally rigidify the frame and to space the side plates 40 and 41, a plurality of tie bars commonly designated at 43 are provided extending vertically adjacent each end of the side plates 40 and 41, as seen in FIG. 3, with sleeves 44 extending over the bars 43 and serving to uniformly space the side plates 40 and 41 vertically throughout. The opposed ends of each of the tie bars 43 are threaded and extend through openings provided therefor in the side plates 40 and 41, with the bars being rigidly clamped to the plates by nuts 45.

Upper and lower pinch slitter blade assemblies generally indicated at 47 and 48, respectively, are mounted for rotation between the spaced side plates 40 and 41. Each of the blade assemblies 47 and 48 is identically constructed and mounted in and between the side plates 40 and 41 and the following description, relating to the construction and mounting of the upper blade assembly 47 is applicable to the lower blade assembly as well. Pinch slitter blades commonly designated at 50 are mounted on arbor 51, with the blades being suitably spaced by cylindrical spacing sleeves 52. The arbor is enlarged at one end thereof, the right end as viewed in FIG. 2, as indicated at 53, with such enlarged portion serving as a stop for the adjacent spacer 52. The opposite end of the arbor 51 is threaded as indicated at 54 for receiving a clamping nut 55 by means of which the entire blade assembly including the spacers and blades themselves can be firmly clamped on the arbor 51. It will be apparent that the blades 50 can vary in number and spacing as desired, with there being three such blades provided in the form shown.

The bottom pinch slitter blades 56 are mounted and spaced in the same manner, and are aligned vertically with the upper blades 50, as can be seen in FIG. 2. The blades 50 and 56 can be adjusted vertically through adjustment of the mountings therefor, as will be presently described, to vary the distance between the blade peripheries. As shown in FIG. 2, the blades 50 and 56 are vertically positioned so as to penetrate the strip S a distance approximately equal to one-third of the thickness of the strip thereby to form longitudinally extending grooves therein. It will be seen that the outer blades 50 and 56 sever the feed strip S relatively closely adjacent the opposed edges thereof, with the relatively narrow strip portions subsequently formed being separated and wound on the scrap winders 20 as previously noted.

The side plate 40 is formed with openings 58 and 59 for receiving upper and lower bearing boxes generally indicated at 60 and 61, respectively. The bearing boxes are identically constructed, with the upper bearing box 60 being longitudinally bored for receiving a spindle bearing carrier 62 which rotatably mounts a spindle dog 63. The latter is generally cone shaped and adapted to be received in a complemental opening 64 formed in the adjacent enlarged end 53 of the arbor 51. The bearing carrier 62 can be adjusted along its axis normal to the side plate 40 by means to be presently described thereby to vary the position of the upper pinch slitter blades 50.

The side plate 41 is similarly provided with openings 65 and 66 for receiving upper and lower bearing boxes generally indicated at 67 and 68, respectively. The boxes are identically constructed and mounted, with the upper box 67 being longitudinally bored for receiving a spindle bearing carrier 69 which rotatably mounts a spindle dog 70. The latter is generally cone shaped and is adapted to be received in a similar opening 71 formed in the adjacent end of the arbor 51 whereby the latter is rotatably mounted at such end. The bearing carrier 69 is resiliently biased inwardly toward the arbor by means of a compression spring 72 the inner end convolution of which contacts the bearing carrier and the opposite end convolution of which contacts the enlarged cap end 74 of an adjusting screw 75. The latter is retained in such position by means of a retaining plate 76 which is suitably bolted or otherwise movably secured to the bearing box and threaded for receiving the adjusting screw 75. A lock nut 77 is also received around the adjusting screw for maintaining the same in its adjusted position. The screw is formed in its outer end with a slot 78 by means of which the same can be axially adjusted to vary the preloading of the spring 72 against the bearing carrier 69. For positioning the spring 72 at the inner end thereof, a generally cylindrical hub 79 is mounted on the bearing carrier 69 and extends within the spring convolutions. It will thus 'be seen that the arbor 51 is continually biased to the right, with the biasing force being controlled through the preloading of the spring 72.

As above noted, the bearing carrier 62 mounted in the side plate 40 is adjustable axially in the bearing box 60 thereby to vary the positioning of the arbor 51 and thus the blades 50 carried thereby. The carrier 62 has mounted thereto a generally cylindrical outer hub 82 which in turn carries a vertically directed pin or arm 83. The latter extends upwardly through a slot 84 formed in the bearing box, which arrangement prevents rotation of the bearing carrier during axial adjustment thereof.

A threaded stud 85 is adapted to contact or be suitably connected to the pin 83 and is in turn threadedly received in a collar 86. The latter is carried by a micrometer collar 87 having a handle 88 extending outwardly therefrom to facilitate rotation thereof. A washer 89 and sleeve 90 are positioned around the collar 86 and between the micrometer collar 87 and the end of the bearing box housing. It will thus be seen that when the collar handle 88 is rotated, the threaded stud 85 can be axially adjusted inwardly or outwardly relative to the collar depending upon the direction of rotation of the collar. The positioning of the arbor 51 and thus the blades 50 carried thereby can accordingly be finally adjusted by the micrometer collar, with such adjustment being against the bias of the spring 72 mounted in the bearing box 67 at the opposite end of the arbor. A lock screw 92 is preferably provided extending upwardly through the threaded opening in the bearing box 60 into engagement with the bearing carrier 62 for maintaining the same in its adjusted position.

The arbor carrying the bottom pinch slitter blades 56 is axially adjustable in the same manner, whereby the upper and lower blades can be precisely laterally adjusted relative to the strip S and vertically aligned.

Referring to FIG. 3, intermediate the openings 58 and 59 formed in the side plate 50 is a relatively smaller opening 94 which is adapted to receive compression springs 95 and 96 the opposed end convolutions of which respectively contact the adjacent ends of the upper and lower bearing boxes 60 and 61, respectively. As clearly shown in FIG. 3, each of the bearing boxes 60 and 61, referring to the upper bearing box 60, is comprised of three united sections 97, 98 and 99, the latter such sec-' tion mounting the bearing carrier 62 previously described. The bearing box 60 is vertically adjustable in the opening 58 to vary the vertical positioning of the slitter blades 50 and 56.

The springs 95 and 96 bias the intermediate section 99 of the upper bearing box 60 upwardly into contact with the bottom plate 100 of an adjustment member which additionally includes a top plate 102 and a connecting section 103. The top plate 102 is adapted to be vertically adjusted by shaft 104 the upper end of which is threaded for vertical adjustment by a worm nut 105. The latter is adapted to be rotated by a worm gear carried by worm shaft 106 to which is mounted a hand knob 107 which extends outwardly from the side of the plate 40. The worm nut 105 is vertically fixed whereby adjustm nt of the worm gear carried by the 'hand knob 107 will vertically raise or lower the plate 100 and thus the bearing box 60 to vertically position the slitter blades 50. The springs 95 and 96 continually upwardly bias the bearing box against the plate 100. The bottom slitter blades can be vertically adjusted in the same manner.

The control knobs 107 are preferably operatively connected to counters or scales 110 mounted at the adjacent edge of the side plate 40 at the top and bottom thereof, which scales can accurately indicate the vertical positioning of the pinch slitter blades 50 and 56.

An important feature of the present invention resides in the manner in which the strip S is vertically controlled and supported as it passes through the pinch slitter unit 18. To provide such support, a series of lower support pads commonly designated at 120 are vertically adjustably mounted on the side plates 40 and 41 and extend longitudinally past the back and front ends of such plate so as to support the traveling strip during its entire travel through the pinch slitting unit. The pads 120 are preferably formed of nylon or like material so as to reduce the friction between the same and the strip traveling thereover to a minimum. A series of upper pressure pads commonly designated at 121 are disposed above and in pressure engagement with the top surface of the strip S and are similarly vertically adjustably carried by the side plates 40 and 41. In the form shown, there are four such vertically aligned pairs of support and pressure pads 120 and 121, respectively, with two such pairs being disposed between the center and the respective outer slitter blades, and two pairs being disposed laterally outwardly of the outer slitter blades for supporting and applying pressure to the relatively narrow scrap portions at the opposed edges of the strip.

Referring to FIG. 3, the lower support pads are supported at the strip inlet side of the pinch slitter unit by a bar which is adjustably mounted on the side plates 40 and 41 and extends therebetween. The bar 130 is provided with a generally T-shaped slot 131 adapted to receive the head 132 of a locking screw member 133. The screw 133 is movable along the slot 131 and can be maintained in its adjusted position by means of a lock nut 134.

The adjusting screw 133 extends through a threaded bushing 135 integral with a micrometer adjustment knob 136. A support pad shoe 137 is mounted on the bushing 135 and adapted to be carried thereby, with the shoe in turn supporting the lower support pads 120. The shoe preferably extends laterally between the side plates 40 and 41. The bar 130 is provided with a top bevel surface 138, with the pad shoe 137 being formed with a complemental bottom bevel surface 139. It will thus be seen that when the micrometer adjustment knob 136 is rotated, the knob, bushing 135, and the pad shoe 137 carried thereby will be axially threaded along the fixed adjusting screw whereby the pad shoe may be vertically raised or lowered by virtue of the described beveled surfaces. In this manner, the support pads 120 can be vertically positioned as desired for supporting the strip S passing through the pinch slitter unit. The knob 136 is provided with a micrometer scale 140 to measure the fine adjustment of the shoe and support pad. A plurality of micrometer adjustments of the type described are preferably provided extending between the side plates 40 and 41 for uniformly raising and lowering the pad shoe and the support pad carried thereby.

The bar 130 as above noted is vertically adjustably mounted relative to the side plates 40 and 41. An internally threaded collar 142 is mounted on the side plate 40, referring to FIG. 3, and receives an elongated set screw 143 having a knurled end 144 for rotating the same. The lead end of the set screw 143 is adapted to contact the bottom of the bar 130 for vertically positioning the same. A lock nut 145 is provided for maintaining the set screw in its adjusted position. As can be seen in FIG. 3A, the bar 130 is provided with vertically elongated slots 146 at opposite ends thereof to accommodate the described vertical adjustment, with a clamping bolt 147 extending through each slot into a tapped opening formed in each of the side plates 40 and 41 to maintain the bar 130 in its vertically adjusted position. To realize such vertical movement of the bar 130, the clamping bolt 147 is merely loosened and the set screw rotated. This adjustment provides in effect a coarse vertical adjustment of the bar 130, and thus the support pads 120, with the fine adjustment being realized through the micrometer adjustment described above.

The bar 130 provided at the opposite end of the pinch slitter unit, or at the right as viewed in FIG. 3, is mounted for vertical adjustment on and between the side plates 40 and 41 in the same manner as above described. Thus, set screw 150 is vertically movable in an internally threaded collar 151 mounted on the side plate 40, with the set screw having a knurled end portion 152 for rotating the same and thereby vertically raising or lowering the bar 130 and the support pad 120 carried thereby. A lock nut 153 is similarly provided for retaining the set screw in its vertically adjusted position. It will be noted that the bar 130 and pad 120 are formed with complemental beveled surfaces in such area whereby the previously described adjustment of the pad shoes 137 at the opposite end of the unit will simultaneously provide the same vertical adjustment at the opponite end of the unit. To achieve the same vertical movement at both ends of the support pads, the beveled angles described are made equal.

The upper pressure pads 121 are also vertically adjustably supported on the side plates 40 and 41. As shown at the upper left in FIG. 3, a collar is secured to the side plate 40 and an adjusting screw 161 having an upper knurled turning portion 162 is supported by such collar. A bar 163 which preferably extends between the side plates and 41 is internally threaded to receive the bottom end of the adjusting screw 161 whereby rotation thereof will effectively raise or lower such bar. A clamp nut 164 is provided to retain the bar 163 in its adjusted position.

A stud 165 is pinned to the frame and held against rotative or axial movement. The stud extends through the bar 163 outwardly thereof and receives an internally threaded sleeve 166 which carries a handle 167. A clamping washer 168 is disposed around the stud between the bar and the sleeve. It will thus be seen that when the sleeve 166 is drawn toward the bar 163 through tightening of the handle 167, the sleeve will tightly clamp the bar against the side plate 40. There is a similar clamping arrangement at the opposite end of the unit for clamping such bar end to the opposite side plate 41.

The top pressure pads 121 are clamped to the bar 163 by means of a pad shoe 170 which carries the adjacent end of the pressure pads. The shoe 170 is bored for receiving a clamping bolt 171 which extends downwardly through the shoe and through an aligned opening 172 formed in the pressure pad 120 immediately therebelow. A nut 173 is adapted to be threaded on the end of the clamp bolt for securing the assembly. A relatively thin plate 174 is positioned on top of the shoe 170 and extends over the bar 163 for clamping the shoe and pad to the bar.

The means for vertically adjustably supporting the top pressure pad 121 at the opposite end of the unit, shown at the upper right in FIG. 3, is generally similar to that just described. Thus, the pad 121 is carried by a pressure pad shoe 180 which is clamped to the bar 181 by a clamping bolt 182 and nut 183. The bar 181 is vertically adjustable relative to the side plate 40 by means of an axially fixed adjusting screw 184 which is supported by collar 185 suitably attached to the side plate 40. A lock nut 186 is similarly provided for retaining the adjusting screw 184 in its vertically adjusted position. Although not appearing in FIG. 3, a handle and sleeve similar to sleeve 166 and handle 167 just described are provided for clamping the bar 181 to the side plate 40. Although not shown, it will be understood that a series of such upper pressure pad mounting assemblies are provided for vertically adjusting each of the upper pressure pads 121.

It will thus be seen that both the upper and lower pads 121 and 120, respectively, and the pinch slitter blades 50 and 56 can be adjusted relative to the strip to afford con- -trolled grooving of the feed strip at the slitting station.

The slitter blades are laterally as well as vertically adjustable so as to penetrate the strip on opposed sides thereof the desired depth. The strip is continually supported by the lower pressure pads with the upper pressure pads 121 contacting the strip from above so as to maintain the same in the same horizontal plane while passing through the unit, thereby effectively minimizing the vertical vibration tending to develop in the strip due to the strip being under tension.

Referring now to the detailed construction of the edge conditioning unit 26, as shown in FIGS. 47 each unit is mounted on the housing mounting the bridle roll units 22 and 23 by means of laterally spaced bracket 200 which in turn supports a channel beam 201 which extends therebetween. A reinforcing plate 202 is additionally provided which interconnects the transverse channel beam 201 and the brackets 200, with the plate being in the form shown welded to flanges 203 of the brackets 200.

As best seen in FIG. -6, generally L-shaped bars 205 and 206 are mounted on the top of the transverse channel beam 201 and are adapted to slidably receive a plate 207. The latter is provided with a transverse, threaded opening for receiving a clamping bolt 208 which extends downwardly through a slot 209 formed in the transverse channel beam to permit lateral movement of the plate relative thereto. The clamping bolt 208 has mounted at the exposed end thereof a handle 211 having a bushing portion 212 keyed or otherwise secured to the bolt 208. The plate 207 can thus be laterally adjusted relative to the bars 205 and 206 and clamped in adjusted poistion by the handle 211.

Generally U-shaped guide members 215 and 216 are mounted on the plate 207 and provide ways or channels 217 and 218, respectively, for slidably receiving a generally T-shaped bar 219. The latter is provided with a transverse opening threaded to receive an upper clamping bolt 220. A handle 221 is carried by the upper end of the adjusting screw 220 and includes a bushing portion 222 preferably keyed to the adjusting bolt for turning the same.

A housing generally indicated at 230 is clamped to the frame by the bar 219 and bolt 220 and comprises a top plate 231, side plate sections 232 and 233, and bottom sections 234 and 235. A plate 236 is positioned on the bar 219 and is suitably apertured for receiving the clamp bolt 220. A plurality of edge conditioning units commonly designated at 237 are mounted within the housing 230, with each such unit mounting an edge conditioning roll as will be hereinafter described when particular reference is made to FIG. 7.

As can be seen in FIGS. 4 and 5, a similar housing 230 and enclosed group of edge conditioning units is mounted opposite to the one illustrated in FIG. 6 for contacting the opposite edge of the traveling strip for conditioning the same. The opposite assembly is constructed and mounted in the identical manner just described and no further description thereof is believed to be necessary.

Referring now to FIG. 7, each edge conditioning unit v237 comprises an elongated housing 240 which has mounted therein a sleeve 241. The latter is formed with a square axial opening for receiving a square shaft 242. The forward end of the shaft 242 extends outwardly of the housing 240 and is adapted to receive the bifurcated end of a yoke 243. A pin 244 extends through aligned openings in the bifurcated ends and the shaft 242, with the remote end being threaded for securing the yoke connection.

The yoke 243 is inwardly centrally recessed as indicated at 245 for receiving the edge conditioning roll 246, with the latter being formed with an edge receiving groove 246a having a radius equal to the desired radius of the strip edge. The conditioning roll is mounted on the outer race 247 of bearing 248, with the inner race 249 thereof being press fit or otherwise secured to pin 250. The inner bearing race 249 is supported by a bushing 251 disposed around the pin and extending through an opening 252 in the yoke, with the bushing being retained by washer 253 and lock nut 255. The upper end of the pin 250 is externally threaded for engagement with a threaded opening 256 in the opposite leg of the yoke, with the upper pin end extending from the yoke and receiving a clamping nut 257. The top of the pin is preferably slotted for vertical adjustment thereof, and thus the conditioning roll 246, with the clamp nut 257 then serving to retain the roll in such vertically adjusted position.

The opposite end of the shaft 242 is adapted to be engaged by the piston rod 260 of an air cylinder generally indicated at 261. The latter is provided with a reduced forward neck portion 262 which is externally threaded for receiving a nut 263 for clamping the cylinder to a retaining plate 264. The latter extends laterally behind the several units 237 and is bolted to the several housings 240 by bolts 265.

Each of the air cylinders 261 is provided with a suitable pressure regulating means (not shown) for varying the pressure of the piston rod 260 on the adjacent end of the shaft 242 and thus the pressure of the roll 246 on the adjacent edge of the strip. The roll pressure applied by the several aligned rolls on the strip edge can thus be simply and effectively regulated to provide optimum conditioning of the strip edge.

The strip while traveling through the edge conditioning unit is supported and vertically positioned and guided by upper and lower pads in generally the same manner as described above with reference to the pinch slitter unit. The pad mountings associated with the edge conditioning units vary, however, from the mountings previously described in that the pads here are not only mounted for vertical adjustment but are mounted for lateral floating while the strip is being edge conditioned. That is, the pads are capable of movement transverse to the direction of travel of the strip to accurately follow the strip edges. As well understood by those skilled in the art, in strip process lines of the type here concerned, there is a tendency of the strip edges to deviate somewhat from a perfectly true path. Since it is important that the strips at the very edges thereof be contacted by the bottom supporting and top pressure pads, means are provided in accordance with the present invention for permitting the pads to follow any deviation in path of the strip edges.

The lower support pads are commonly designated at 270 and are in the form shown three in number, with the outer pads preferably abutting the adjacent yokes for positioning the same as close as possible to the strip edge. The top pads 271 are disposed immediately above the lower pads 270, with the outermost top pads similarly engaging the adjacent yokes 243 of the edge conditioning units.

The supporting pads 270 are carried by brackets 272 which are rigidly connected to rod 273. The opposite ends of the latter extend through ball bushings 274, with the extreme outer ends of the rod 273 being flanged as shown at 275 for limiting the axial movement of the rod in either direction. Thus, the rod 273 and pads 270 carried thereby can slide by virtue of their mounting in the ball bushing 274 in a direction normal to the direction of travel of the strip S.

The bushings 274 are carried by studs 276 which extend upwardly through openings provided therefor in housing extensions 277 mounted in any suitable manner on the edge conditioning units housing 230. The upper end of the stud 276 is threaded for receiving nut 279 the adjustment of which can effectively vary the vertical position of the stud and thus the bushing 274 carried thereby. In this manner, the bottom supporting pads 270 can be vertically positioned as desired for proper support of the strip S as it travels through the unit.

The top pressure pads 271 are mounted in a generally similar manner. Brackets commonly designated at 282 mount the pads 271 and are in turn rigidly mounted on upper rods 283. The opposite ends of each such rod extend through bushings 284 as previously described with the axial movement of each rod 283 being limited also as previously described. Each bushing 284 is supported by a stud 285 which is externally threaded for receiving an adjusting nut 286, with the housing extension 277 being formed with an opening for loosely receiving the stud. It will thus be seen that by rotating the several adjusting nuts 286, the bushing 284 can be vertically adjusted thereby adjusting the upper pressure pads 271 toward or away from the strip S.

To facilitate threading of the strip through the edge conditioning unit at the beginning of the operation, a quick release mechanism is provided which functions both to clamp the upper pad mounting assembly in its operative position in which the pad surfaces contact the strip, and to provide a biased release arrangement for vertically raising the pads followingsimple lever manipulation.

A bar 290 extends between and is mounted on the top of the longitudinally aligned bushings 284 at the strip inlet and outlet ends of the unit. Each bar 290 additionally mounts a cylindrical stud 292 the upper end of which is threaded for receiving a hold-down nut 293. The lower end of the stud 292 extends downwardly into a cylindrical sleeve 294 which is rigidly attached to a plate 295 mounted in turn by bolts 296 to the housing 230. A compression spring 297 continually biases the stud 292 and thus the bar 290 upwardly. A rod or lever 298 is operatively attached to the stud 292 and is adapted to travel in a generally L-shaped slot 299 formed in the wall of the sleeve 294. It will thus be seen that when the lever 298 is rotated to a position vertically aligning the same with the vertical leg of the slot 299, the spring 297 will force and thus the bar 290 upwardly, with the bar 290 in turn raising the bushings 284 and upper pressure pads 271 carried thereby. To move the upper pressure pad 271 to a clamped position engaging the top surface of the strip, the lever 298 is lowered to the bottom of the vertical portion of the slot 299 and moved laterally in the horizontal leg of the slot whereby the spring 297 is effectively neutralized and the bar 290 retained in its lowered, operative position.

It will thus be seen that each of the edge conditioning units 26 are constructed and arranged to provide optimum edge conditioning of the strip traveling therethrough. The conditioning rolls 246 are vertically adjustable to accu rately receive the strip edge, and the pressure on each of the rolls is independently adjustable to vary the pressure applied to the strip edge. The lower support and upper pressure pads are mounted to accurately vertically guide and support the strip while traveling through the edge conditioning unit. Moreover, the lower supporting and upper pressure pads 270 and 271, respectively, are mounted to permit floating thereof laterally so as to follow the strip edges at all times. This insures that the strip edges are vertically confined while being conditioned by the several edge conditioning rolls, an important consideration if optimum edge conditioning is to be realized and buckling of the strip edges avoided.

The operation of the slitting and edge conditioning units should be apparent from the above description. To briefly summarize, referring to the generally schematic FIGS. 8-11, the strip S passes under tension through the pinch slitter unit 18, FIG. 8, and is vertically controlled and supported by the pads and 121. The upper and lower slitter blades 50 and 56 are vertically and laterally adjustable to partially penetrate the top and bottom of the strip and form generally V-shaped grooves therein, with each groove 'being preferably of a depth approximately one-third the total thickness of the strip. The blades 50 and 56 are beveled and the grooves formed in the strip approximate the desired radius of the finished, conditioned edges. It will be noted, referring to FIG. 8, that the peripheral edges of the slitter blades 50 and 56 are slightly rounded to effectively draw, rather than sharply cut, the strip during severing thereof. The metal is thereby drawn into the bottom of the groove and a reasonably true radius formed. The resulting metal flow not only produces the desired radius but forms edges which are essentially free of burrs. The groove configuration can be controlled by the bevel angle of the pinch slitter blades 65. The pads 120 and 121 are vertically positioned so that the midpoint between the vertically aligned slitter blades 50 and 56 is coincidental with the central plane of the strip material. The bottom pads 120 support the strip S and the top pads 121 contact the same and serve to dampen out the vertical vibrations in the strip which inherently develop when the strip is tensioned.

The feed strip S with the grooves formed therein thereafter passes through the strip separator 19 whereat the strip is separated into a plurality of relatively narrow strips, with each of such strips at this process stage having relatively jagged edges a and b, FIG. 9. The strips S are thereafter passed through the edge conditioning units 26, FIG. 10, with the edge conditioning rolls 246 engaging and smoothing the jagged edges a and b of the strip, and the strip being vertically supported and contained by the pads 270 and 271. The radius of the concave grooves 246a formed in the edge conditioning rolls is desirably the same as the final desired radius of the strip edge, with the roll thus complementing the reasonably true radii formed in 1 1 the strip by the slitter blades 50 and 56. The final product, illustrated in FIG. 1, is wound on recoilers for ultimate disposition.

It will be seen from the above that the described apparatus and method is distinctly advantageous when compared with present slitting equipment. A final strip product having the desired edge rounding is produced in essentially two process steps. The rounding is initiated at the slitting station and completed at the edge conditioning station following strip separation. The resulting strip product is of particular benefit in electrical applications as above noted.
