TIEING OR WIRE TWISTING TOOL Filed March 7. 1968 .'5 Sheets-Sheet 3 INVENTOR. THOMAS J. HANIGAN TTDRMEYS.

United States Patent O 3,494,385 TIEING OR WIRE TWISTING TOOL Thomas J. Hanigan, 215 Mount Holly Drive, Springfield, Mass. 01118 Filed Mar. 7, 1968, Ser. No. 711,431 Int. Cl. B21f 15/04 U.S. Cl. IL10- 93.6 1 Claim ABSTRACT F THE DISCLOSURE An automatic tieing or wire twisting tool for fastening structural elements together, such as intersecting pairs of angularly disposed reinforcing rods, in a latticework common in building and road construction, by way of fitting around the rods at each intersection thereof the midsection of a U-shaped staple and therefollowing twisting together the legs of the staple at their basal portions.

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION Field of the invention In the road and building construction art, extended use is made of steel rods for reinforcing concrete construction wherein the rods are usually laid as a skeleton structure, normally at right angles to each other, in a network or quilted pattern or latticework or grid. The rods desirably are secured together at their intersecting points so that, when a wooden or metal form is built up around them and concrete is poured thereinto, the rods will not sag under the weight of the concrete.

Description of the prior art For the usual sizes of reinforcing rods, it is practice to secure the rods to each other at each intersecting point. To this end, a short length of wire is fitted around both rods, with its ends tightly twisted together to secure the rods in situ.

Heretofore, it has been necessary to perform these wire tying operations by hand, the ties being applied to the bars by hand and closed with pliers or other like tools wherefore the ties cann-ot be closed with suicient snugness to grip the bars and hold them rigidly in place. Such technique is disadv-antageous in that it is time consuming and results in costly delays and demands skilled labor for the inefficient results obtained.

SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION The tool is for securing together steel reinforcing rods as used in the construction of poured concrete buildings, bridges, roads and the like, but can also be used for securing together other sections of Wire fencing, netting, and like reticulated wire fabrics, and it has other securingtogether capacities as well, as for example, for binding together wires, ropes and like materials.

The tool is of the wire-tying type which ejects and twists wire ties around a pair of rods, exploiting the principle of translating a pushing for-ce, generated in one rectilinear direction, into a reversely directed force. As the apparatus is hand-held by an operator, a forwardly directed force, resulting from the operators own pushing action, is automatically translated advantageously as a rearwardly-directed rectilinear component, generating, concomitantly therewith, a rotative component.

DESCRIPTION OF THE PREFERRED EMBODIMENT The main assemblies of the tool comprise a pair of inner and outer, telescopically-related, hollow housings 10 and 12 respectively, a power-generating impeller generally indicated by 14 and extending longitudinally through and having parts suit-ably journalled for rotation within and relative to the inner and outer housings, a magazine 16 which may be detachably secured to the inner housing and being adapted to contain a springbiased quot-a of preformed U-shaped tie wires 18 in stacked contiguous non-operating relationship, and an anvil assembly generally indicated by 20 and disposed forwardly of the housings and magazine.

For purposes of orientation, the terms forward will be understood to mean leftward and rearward to mean rightward, as the tool is viewed in most of the several figures.

Inner and outer housings 10 and 12 are extendable along a common axis, magazine 16 is disposed normal to said common axis substantially adjacent the forwardlyfacing end of the inner housing, and anvil assembly 20 is likewise disposed normal to said common axis forwardly of the housings and magazine.

Inner housing 10 is defined by spaced opposite side walls 22 and 24 interconnected by spaced upper and lower walls 26 and 28 respectively, and closed at its forwardmost end by a forwardly-facing end plate 30 which is apertured to allow the in seriatim discharge therethrough of the wires 18, as will appear.

The forward end of lower wall 28 is provided with a magazine opening 32 adapted to accept the throated upper end of magazine 16 and further to releasably support said magazine with respect to the inner housing in the well known firearm lmagazine manner, all so as to provide an entrance means through which tie wires may be fed in seriatim from the top of the magazine-contained stack thereof and into tie wire advancing position within the inner housing during operational use.

Outer housing 12 is defined by spaced opposite side walls 34 and 36 interconnected by spaced upper and lower walls 38 and 40 respectively, and closed at its rearwardmost end by a rearwardly-facing end plate 42. Each outer housing wall has a bearing relationship with its complemental inner housing Wall to allow the aforementioned telescoping relationship whereby the components slide between extended and retracted positions as to each other. Lower wall 40 is preferably provided with finger engaging depressions 41 to facilitate manual handengagement of the tool.

Power-generating impeller 14 includes a manuallyengageable handle 44 mounted upon shank 46.

Shank 46 mounts at its forward end control collar 48 sleeved therearound and secured thereto, which control collar extends through a suitable opening S in end plate 42 of the outer housing and is suitably fixed to said housing.

Thus, handle 44, shank 46, control collar 48 and outer housing 12 will be observed to be fixed as to each other so that the components may be pushed rectilinearly forwardly and pulled rectilinearly rearwardly by the operator who may hold the tool by the handle.

Such named components unisonly serve in a train and will shortly be seen to deliver movements to various other components of the tool, about to be described.

A cam 52 is provided and has on its outer periphery an endless cam groove 54 in the form of a pair of opposite intersecting helices merging into each other at their opposite ends.

Said cam 52 is adapted to be receivable into a camreceiving recess 51 extending rearwardly from the forwardly-facing end of shank 46.

Control collar 48 mounts a radially-disposed inwardly extending follower 55, which is adapted to engage in groove 54 of cam 52 for the well known function of driving the cam in rotative movement as the handle and shank and control collar and outer housing are unisonly pushed forwardly or pulled rearwardly.

The forwardmost extremity of the cam is secured to the rearwardmost extremity of a coaxially-aligned driving shaft 56 through means of a thrust bearing 58 serving the usual shaft supporting function.

A tubular driving shaft sleeve 60 sleeved around driving shaft 56 is concentrically related to and generally coextensive with said driving shaft and the two components are extendable through a suitable opening 62 in end plate 30 of inner housing 10 and forwardly thereof, being held in fixed position with respect to said inner housing insofar as any longitudinal movement relative thereto is concerned.

As handle 44, shank 46, control collar 48 and outer housing 12 are pushed rectilinearly forwardly or pulled rectilinearly rearwardly, a rotative movement is imparted to cam 52 and driving shaft 56 through follower 55 interiorly of control collar 48 and cam 52 is moved rearwardly into recess 57 in shank 46 or is moved forwardly therefrom, as the case may be.

The forwardmost extremity of sleeve 60 is tightly embraced by an outer collar 64 on the rearwardly-facing face of anvil assembly for sleeve-to-gear housing securement, and the forwardmost extremity of driving shaft 56 extends forwardly therebeyond and through aligned bearing support openings in the confronting front and rear gear housing plates 66 and 67 respectively of the anvil assembly.

These confronting gear housing plates define cornmunicating gear recesses therebetween, which recesses accommodate the gears of a power transmission -mechanism serving as the means for communicating motion from the driving members, cam 52 and driving shaft 56, to a driven component now to appear.

A pinion 68 positioned in one of the gear recesses is splined or keyed to driving shaft 56 and is rotatable therewith.

Pinion 68 is in external driving association with another pinion 70, disposed within the other of the gear recesses and journalled relative to the gear housing of the anvil assembly as by a shaft 72 to which it is splined or keyed. Shaft 72, at its rearwardly-facing end without the gear housing of the anvil assembly, is fixed to or unitary with an anvil or twisting spindle 74, likewise disposed outside of the gear housing, and is disposed in spaced parallel relationship to the rearwardly-facing gear housing plate 67.

A predetermined gear ratio between pinions 68 and 70 allows any desired torque for driving the anvil or twisting spindle 74.

The rearwardly-facing planar face of the anvil is provided with a plurality of forwardly-extending wire receiving openings 76, countersunk as at 78. The openings are disposed in an equispaced arrangement of plural concentric rings, all so as to provide a multiplicity of pairs of operating loci points for making the tool readily adaptable for use with a variety of tie wire sizes.

Linear travel of the housings relative to each other as a force is exerted upon handle 44 is effected by means of pinion and rack assemblies wherein a pair of pinion gears 122, 124 cooperate with and are disposed between parallel, oppositely-facing vertically-aligned, longitudinally-extending upper gear rack and lower gear rack 92.

Upper gear rack 90 may be supported with respect to sleeve 60 and may be suspended with respect to an upper guide 94 fixed to and depending from inner housing upper wall 26; the upper guide is suitably recessed with a downwardly-facing centrally-located slot 96 to accommodate the upper periphery of sleeve 60 and the upper part of the upper gear rack so that the gear rack and sleeve are slideable relative to the upper guide and inner housing.

A blade-like tie wire driver or ejector 98 is fixed relative to lower gear rack 92 and is disposed forwardly thereof so as to be extendable in manner to overlie the throat of the magazine and the magazine opening or mouth 32 in lower wall 26 and to face anvil 74 with the driver being substantially aligned with the horizontal axis of the anvil.

The forwardly-facing leading edge of the driver is provided with an arcuate groove or recess 104 of suitable dimensions and configuration to receive therein a complemental arcuate web portion 106 of a tie wire 18, said web portion interconnecting the ends of a pair of forwardlyfacing spaced parallel leg portions 108 thereof having free ends for reception in a pair of openings 76` in anvil 74.

Lower gear rack 92 slideably disposed upon and relative to lower wall 28 of the inner housing and driver 98 is disposed in a rearwardly-facing recess provided in the forwardmost end of its lower surface.

Magazine 16 incorporates biasing means in the form of a spring 19 which embraces a follower 21 for urging the tie wires of the stack upwardly for in-seriatim-engagement with driver 98, with each tie wire in turn being moved in a plane parallel to the magazine throat through which it is driven and above the plane of mouth 32 of the inner housing.

The rearwardmost end of lower gear rack 92 extends into outer housing 12 and is provided with an integral downwardly depending flange 110 having a lower end for bearing relationship upon the inner surface of lower wall 40 of the outer housing.

The lower planar surface of lower gear rack 92 is slotted or recessed at 112, forwardly of flange 110, to accommodate a stop 114 of a longitudinally-disposed slide bar 116 freely extendable through an opening 118 in the flange and threadedly engaged with end plate 42 of the outer housing. A nut 120 is threadedly received on the rearward end of the slide bar so as to bear against the rearwardly-facing face of the end plate, wherefore the slide bar is fixed relative to the outer housing.

Recess 112 allows rectilinear movement of the lower gear rack relative to the slide bar whereby the rearwardlyfacing face of flange 110 may be brought into contact with end plate 42.

Gears 122 and 124 mesh with upper and lower gear racks 90 and 92 respectively, each being mounted upon and centrally of the respective one of a pair of longitudinally-spaced transversely-extending shafts 126 and 128 respectively which are journalled at their ends in suitably aligned openings in, for rotation relative to, side walls 22 and 24 of the inner housing.

Shafts 126 and 128 are additionally extendable through suitable openings in a pair of spaced, vertically-disposed, spacer plates 130 and 132 positioned one at each side face of the gears so as each to be disposed between said gears and the adjacent side wall of the inner housing.

A pair of vertically-disposed tie wire driver retainer plates 134 and 136 (see FIG. 7) extend between driver 98 and upper guide 94 of the inner housing and forwardly of the pair of guide plates 130 and 132, one on each side of gear racks 90 and 92 and gears 122 and 124, each being suitably fixed to a side wall of the inner housing.

The manner of use of the tie gun is illustrated in FIGS. 9 and 10 where is shown a portion of a latticework of steel rods R, R of the type used ina reenforced concrete structure, and the tool of the invention for tying the rods together.

The tool is adapted to secure the rods together by ejecing wire ties 18 so as to straddle the crossed rods and by twisting the free legs of the wire ties together.

The tool is easily held and rendered functional by one hand, the operator holding same by handle 44 so that it is positioned in a horizontally or vertically or angularlydisposed position at the point of intersection of the rods with anvil assembly 20 being disposed at one side of the rods where anvil 74 is substantially alignedrwith the point of rod intersection, and housings and 12 being disposed at the opposite side of the rods.

The driving force is obtained either by the pressure imposed upon the anvil, as when a wall or slab construction is involved, and resulting when the anvil is disposed upon the work, or by the pressure imposed upon end plate 30 of the inner housing, as when a free stand mesh construction is involved, and resulting when the rods contact the end plate.

To wrap a staple around the crossed rods, the operator initially positioned the tool so that at least one of the rods is contacting the end plate of the inner housing. He then exerts a forwardly directed linear force upon the handle, in the direction of arrow a, which triggers a first increment of free travel, wherein the outer housing moves forwardly in the direction of arrow a until the end plate thereof contacts flange 110 on lower gear rack 92 as shown in FIG. 2.

The gear racks move oppositely so that any force directed in one direction is transferred to an opposite direction.

As the operator continues to press on the handle in the direction of arrow a, the end plate of the inner housing continues to bear on the pair of rods so that the inner housing cannot move.

The end plate of the outer housing being in contact with the ange on the lower gear rack, continued forward force on the handle urges the outer housing forwardly to urge the lower gear rack forwardly therewith in sliding manner relative to the inner housing.

During this rectilinear movement of the outer housing and lower gear rack in the direction of arrow a, a rotative movement is set up in the anvil through the rotation of cam 52 as the cam is drawn into control collar 48 and recess 51 of shank 46, so as unisonly to move the oppositely moving upper gear rack and the anvil assembly rearwardly in the direction of arrow b, with the anvil moving toward the crossed rods and the upper gear rack moving therefrom along the rotating pinion gears.

As the lower gear rack moves rectilinearly forwardly, the driver forces the uppermost tie wire in the magazine out of the magazine and through an appropriately-aligned slot in the forwardly-facing end wall of the magazine.

Continued forward movement of the outer housing brings thrust bearing 58 into contact with the forward end of control collar 48, whereby further forward movement of the inner housing is precluded. By such time, the uppermost tie wire will have been projected outwardly from the inner housing by the driver so that the free ends of the tie wire have engaged in a suitable pair of openings 76 in anvil 74.

During this movement of the outer housing, cam 52 and driving shaft 56 are continuously rotating, with such rotation being transferred to the anvil through the train of spur gears 68 and 70 so that when the free ends of the legs of the tie wire are received in a pair of openings 76, c-ontinued rotation of the anvil will cause the legs of the staple to be twisted about each other, whereby to secure the rods together in the desired relation.

It is usually desirable to draw the legs up into a tight engagement with the rods. However, the thrust bearing may have contacted the control collar wherefor further retrograde movement of cam 52 in the direction of arrow b is precluded, also as to deny further rotative movement of the anvil. Such denial is overcome by exertion of a slight retrograde pulling force in the direction of arrow b upon the handle, which force is transferred to the outer housing to cause said outer housing to move in the direction of the arrow b until stop 114 of slide bar 116 xed to end plate 42 contacts the forward face of flange 110 on the lower gear rack. During this sequence, the distance between the anvil and the forward face of the end plate on the inner housing was not changed, wherefor the staple driver remains in contact with the web of the tie wire and the ends of the tie wire legs remain embedded in the openings in the anvil.

As the outer housing is backed off, the control collar is simultaneously backed olf relative to cam 52 to the FIG. 4 position.

Further rotation of the anvil may now be obtained by exerting a pushing force on the handle in the direction of arrow a, whereupon the outer housing is concomitantly moved in the same direction until the rearward end of flange contacts end plate 42 and thrust bearing 58 on cam 52 contacts collar 48.

In effect, the outer housing may be reciprocated relative to the inner housing without changing the relative positions of the anvil and driver to effect one or two or more additional twists of the tie wire legs around the intersecting rods.

When the tie-gun is used with set up slabs or walls, the forward end plate 66 of anvil assembly 20V may be rested upon such slab or wall and the rods to be tied may be disposed between anvil 74 and end plate 30 of the inner housing. A forwardly-directed linear force on the handle will -rnove the outer housing forwardly as before until end plate 42 contacts ange 110` on the lower gear rack. But there is no direct rearward force being exerted upon inner housing 10. Such force is indirectly applied thereto as cam 52 is moved rearwardly so that the upper gear rack is moved rearwardly concomitently therewith, setting up the rotation of the pinion gears to move the lower gear rack oppositely and forwardly.

This forward movement of the lower gear rack ejects a tie wire forwardly as before, with the staple being twisted about the rods through rotation of the anvil, such twisting motion also serving to draw the staple out of the inner housing.

To obtain further rotation of the anvil, a slight retrograde pulling force in the direction of arrow b is exerted on the handle. Such pulling force on the handle is transferred to the outer housing causing the outer housing to move in the direction of arrow b until stop 114 of slide rod 116 fixed to end plate 42 of the outer housing contacts the forward face of flange 10 on the lower gear rack, and during this sequence, the distance between the anvil and the forward face of end plate 30 of the inner housing has not changed so that the ends of the tie wire legs remain embedded in the openings in the anvil.

As the outer housing is backet off, control collar 48 is simultaneously backed olf relative to carn 52 to the FIG. 4 position.

Rotation of the anvil may now be obtained by exertouter part of the housing and a pinion gear intering a pushing force on the handle in the direction of posed between and meshing with the first and second arrow a, whereupon the outer housing is moved in the racks and journalled in the inner part of the houssame direction luntil the rearward end of flange 110 coning with movement of the outer part of the housing tacts end plate 42 and thrust bearing 58 on cam 52 conin one direction and of one of the gear racks setting tacts control collar 48. up rotation of the pinion gear to -move the other What is claimed is: gear rack in an opposite direction;
