10 Claims, 6 Drawing Figures 'PATENTED FEB] H975 SHEET 2 0F 5 Nay-h- O3 Q g ww PATENTEU 1 75 SHEET 3 [IF 5 MEANS FOR SECURING AND REMOVING MOLDS FROM COMPACTING APPARATUS BACKGROUND AND BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF INVENTION The present invention relates to improvements in powder compacting apparatus of the type which includes a rotating table or other supporting surface for advancing a series of mold assemblies into and out of a compacting chamber where a powder material within each mold assembly can be compacted into a more dense and coherent form. The invention is more specifically concerned with an improved means for releasably securing individual mold assemblies to a table means so that the mold assemblies can be retained thereon during a compacting operation and removed therefrom after the compacting operation is completed.
Generally it is known in the art to provide for a table means or other supporting surface for a plurality of upright molds which can receive charges of a powder material, after which they are inserted into a bottom entry compacting chamber where the powder material is isostatically compacted into a relatively dense and coherent form. Devices of this type are illustrated in US. patent 3,698,843, for example, and in a copending application Ser. No. 469,980, entitled Compacting Apparatus Having Improved Rotating Table Means For Indexing Molds To And From A Compacting Chamber filed May 15, 1974 by Thomas A. Deprez. It is also known to provide for a part removal means with devices of the type described in the aforesaid patent in which there is provided a means for stripping an elastomeric mold from a formed part so that the formed part can be grasped and removed from a supporting surface.
The present invention is primarily directed to improved latching and removal devices which cooperate to alternately secure and release a mold assembly relative to a table means so that a very precise and concentric relationship can be maintained between certain critical portions of the mold assembly. In accordance with the present invention, the entire mold assembly is lifted and removed from a supporting surface when it is desired to remove a part therefrom. In this way, there is no requirement for stripping an elastomeric portion of the mold assembly away from the remainder of the assembly in order to make a compacted part accessible for removal. Thus, the arrangement of the present invention provides for a lifting and dumping of the entire mold assembly, and this allows a replacement of the entire assembly back onto the supporting surface without disrupting critical relationships which are designed into the various portions which make up the mold assembly.
In a preferred embodiment of the invention, there is provided a latching means, in the form of pivotally mounted finger elements, mounted on a table or other supporting structure for securing a mold assembly to the supporting structure. In the type of apparatus described in the aforesaid application, in which each mold assembly is inserted into a compacting chamber by a lifting action of the table, the latching means has an additional function of positively engaging a portion of the mold assembly as the mold assembly is withdrawn from the compacting chamber so as to assure an easy extraction of the mold assembly from the compacting chamber. The present invention also provides for a separate dumping means for engaging, lifting and removing an individual mold assembly from the supporting surface after the mold assembly has been released from the latching means, to thereby provide for a removal of the part from the mold assembly. Preferably, the dumping means comprises a pair of spaced apart jaw elements mounted on a common axis so that the jaw elements can be rotated about the axis to engage and move a mold assembly from an upright position to an upside down position for dumping of a part therefrom. The dumping means also functions to automatically release the latching means out of engagement with a mold assembly when the dumping means is moved into an operative position for engaging and lifting the mold assembly.
These and other features and advantages of the present invention will become apparent in the more detailed discussion which follows. In that discussion reference will be made to the accompanying drawings as briefly described below.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF INVENTION FIG. 1 illustrates a top plan view of a circular table means 10 having a plurality of apertures 12 formed therethrough for receiving individual mold assemblies 14 in each aperture. The table means 10 is of a type which can be indexed and lifted and lowered to successively advance the mold assemblies 14 to and from a bottom entry compacting chamber (not illustrated) for compacting a powder material, such as a ferrous metal powder which is compacted as an intermediate step in a process for forming fully dense, high strength gear parts. The basic compacting apparatus with which the rotating table 10 is associated does not form a separate part of the present invention, and the descriptions and drawings of the aforesaid copending application are incorporated herein by reference to the extent necessary to supply background information on equipment of this type. Generally, the rotating table means 10 functions to carry each mold assembly 14 to and from various stations located around the table means so that the mold assembly can be filled with a powder material, subjected to isostatic compacting, and advanced to a position where the compacted part can be removed therefrom. The present invention is concerned with an improved combination of elements for .releasably securing each mold assembly 14 to thetable means and for lifting each mold assembly away from the table means at a dumping station for removing a part therefrom.
FIGS. 2 and 3 illustrate specific details of the improvements of the present invention. As illustrated, each mold assembly 14 is secured in its respective position relative to the table means 10 by a latching means which includes finger elements 16. The finger elements are mounted on the table means so as to pivot about pin members 18, and each finger element is arranged to pivot from the position shown in FIG. 2, where it is in engagement with a portion of the mold assembly 14, to the position shown in FIG. 3, where it is out of engagement with the mold assembly 14. As shown in greater detail in FIG. 4, each finger element 16 is fastened to the table means 10 by the pin member 18 which defines the pivot axis for the finger element. A coil spring element 20 is carried around each pin member 18 and within a bore of each finger element 16 to normally urge the finger element into a position for engaging and latching a mold assembly relative to the table means 10. The spring element 20 is secured at one end to a portion of the finger element and at its other end to a portion of the pin member 18 or the table means 10. A limit pin 22 is fixed to the table means 10 to be received within a bore or recess 24 formed into the finger element 16. The limit pin 22 and the bore 24 define limits of pivotal movement of each finger element, as can be appreciated by comparing the positions of the finger elements shown in FIGS. 2 and 3. In the illustrated embodiment, a pair of finger elements 16 positioned on opposite sides of a mold assembly 14 constitute a latching means for that particular mold assembly. However, it is contemplated that a lesser or greater number of finger elements may be used in specific applications, if desired.
From the above discussion, it can be seen that the releasable latching means functions to normally retain each mold assembly 14 in its respective position (which may be in a mating condition with an aperture 12, for example) relative to a supporting surface, and each latching means is designed to be releasable from its securing position relative to a mold assembly so that the mold assembly can be lifted and removed from the supporting surface for purposes of dumping a part therefrom. The dumping operation is carried out by a separate dumping means which includes an assembly having a pair of spaced apart jaw elements 30 mounted on a common axis 32 so that the jaw elements 30 can be brought into engagement with a mold assembly 14 for lifting and moving the mold assembly from its upright position on a supporting surface to an upside down position which results in a dumping or removal of a part therefrom. This change in orientation of the mold assembly is illustrated in FIG. 5.
Referring to FIGS. 2, 3 and 5, it can be seen that the jaw elements 30 are secured to a common shaft member 34 which defines a common axis of rotation 32 for the jaw elements. Each jaw element 30 is separately keyed or fastened to the shaft member 34 so as to provide for limited axial movement along the shaft member. Movement of the jaw elements along the shaft member 34 defines positions of engagement (as shown in FIG. 3) and disengagement (as shown in FIG. 2) of the pair ofjaw elements 30 relative to a mold assembly 14. The two jaw elements 30 are normally urged toward each other to effect a gripping engagement of a mold assembly through the action of a spring means 36 carried on a rod member 38 which interconnects portions of the two jaw elements 30 with each other. As shown in the drawings, the rod member 38 can be secured at one end to a portion of a housing associated with one of the jaw elements 30 (the right hand jaw element as viewed in FIGS. 2 and 3), and from there, the
rod member 38 passes through an opening in a corresponding housing structure of the opposite jaw element so as to permit relative motion between the opposite jaw element and the rod member 38. The spring means 36 is compressed between the housing of the opposite jaw member and a nut 40 (threaded onto the rod member 38) so as to normally urge the two jaw members 30 towards each other.
As shown in FIG. 2, the jaw members 30 can be moved away from each other to release a mold assembly from a gripping engagement therewith by a hydraulic means which includes a cylindrical structure 42 for receiving a hydraulic fluid from a source (not shown) through an inlet 44 and into a chamber 46 defined around a portion of the shaft member 34 of the gripping assembly. Housing structures associated with the separate jaw members 30 include cylindrical portions 48 which are shaped to be received within the cylinder structure 42, and known sealing gaskets 50 are provided to contain hydraulic fluid introduced into the chamber 46. In this way the circular portions 48 of the separate jaw elements 30 function as pistons within the cylinder structure 42, and an introduction of a pressurized hydraulic fluid into the chamber 46 functions to drive the separate jaw elements 30 in opposite directions away from each other so as to disengage the dumping assembly from a mold assembly 14. Movement of the jaw elements 30 away from each other is limited by a pair of mounting brackets 52 or other equivalent structures which function to limit the travel of each jaw element 30 along the shaft member 34.
As shown in FIGS. 3 and 5, the shaft member 34 is keyed to a hydraulic motor means 54 of known design so that a rotational movement can be imparted to the shaft member 34 about its axis 32. The motor means 54 can comprise any known structure for effecting a rotational movement back and forth for of travel, or any other desired range of rotation, for moving the dumping assembly from the position shown in full lines in FIG. 5 to that shown in dashed lines in the same figure. Various limit switches and other controls are provided, as are well known in the art, to automatically control operation of the dumping assembly during each cycle of operation.
A particular feature of the latching means and dumping means of the present invention provides for an automatic disengagement of the latching means each time the dumping assembly is brought into an operative position for engaging and removing a mold assembly from the table means 10. This feature can be appreciated from the views shown in FIGS. 2 and 3 wherein it can be seen that protruding surface 60 carried by the jaw elements 30 are arranged to contact cylindrical bearing surfaces 62 of each finger element 16 so as to pivot each finger element to the position shown in FIG. 3 to thereby release a mold assembly 14 from its latching engagement with the finger elements 16. As the jaw elements 30 move toward each other to disengage each of the finger elements 16, there is a simultaneous engagement of gripping portions 64 of the jaw elements 30 with a portion of each mold assembly 14. Thus, the dumping means and the latching means cooperate to provide for an engagement of one during disengagement of the other.
A normal operating cycle of the dumping assembly would start with the jaw elements 30 out of the line of travel of a mold assembly 14 during indexing of the table means to bring a mold assembly into position for dumping of a part therefrom. The jaw elements 30 would be in the positions shown in FIGS. 2 and 5, ready to receive a mold assembly therebetween when the table 10 is raised (to the position shown in FIG. 5) to its upper limit position. Then, hydraulic fluid would be released from the chamber 46 so that the spring means 36 could urge the jaw elements 30 towards each other to trip the finger elements 16 out of engagement with the mold assembly and to bring the jaw elements 30 into gripping engagement therewith. From there, the cycle would continue with actuation of the motor means 54 to remove the mold assembly 14 from the table means 10 so as to move the position of the mold from an upright orientation to an upside down orientation as shown in FIG. 5. A part would be dumped or removed from the mold assembly while in the upside down orientation, and the dumping assembly would be in a position to return the empty mold assembly to the table means and to begin another cycle of operation.
FIGS. 5 and 6 illustrate an optional feature of the present invention which provides for holding a part within the confines of the mold assembly 14 during a movement of the mold assembly from its normally upright position on a supporting surface to the upside down position shown in these figures. This feature includes a holding means 80 which is carried by one of the jaw elements 30 of the dumping assembly so as to contact and retain a part within the mold assembly while the mold assembly is being turned over to the position shown in FIG. 6. The holding means includes a finger member 82 pivotally mounted at 84 to a bracket 86 secured to one of the jaw elements 30 of the dumping assembly. The finger element 82 is urged by a spring means 88 to a position which normally covers a portion of the open end of the mold assembly 14 so that a part cannot fall prematurely from the confines of the mold assembly until the finger element 82 has been moved out of the way. Pivotal movement of the finger element 82 out of its retaining position is accomplished by a contact of a tail portion 90 of the finger element 82 with an adjustable stop 92 positioned at a dumping station so as to cause the finger element 82 to move to the dashed line position shown in FIG. 6. By selecting a placement of the stop 92, the holding means can be controlled to release a part from the mold assembly at a selected time or position in a dumping cycle. The stop 92, or any equivalent structure, can also function to tap the mold assembly in a way which will loosen and release any part which may be sticking to a core rod or other structure of the mold assembly. FIG. 6 also illustrates a receiving pin 94 for receiving a part having a bore therethrough from the mold assembly 14 after the finger element 82 has been moved out of its retaining position by contact with the stop pin 92. The receiving pin 94 may be carried on a conveyor or other transfer equipment for moving parts away from the dumping zone for further processing or handling in an automated system.
FIG. 5 also illustrates details of construction for a type of mold assembly 14 which includes a base structure 96 having a continuous groove or other recessed formation 98 formed into a surface thereof for receiving portions of the finger elements 16. The portion of each finger element which enters the recessed formation 98 is ofa shorter vertical dimension (as seen in the FIG. 5 orientation) than the height of the recessed formation so that the mold assembly can move for a limited distance alongjts axis during a compacting operation without releasing the finger elements 16. This relationship is described more fully in the context of re quirements of a compacting apparatus in my aforesaid patent application.
Having described a specific embodiment of the pres ent invention, it can be appreciated that the improvements of the present invention offer a number of advantages: critical relationships between certain portions of a mold assembly can be maintained during filling, compacting, and part removal steps of an overall operation; individual mold assemblies are latched to a supporting surface during certain periods of the operation to assure precise insertion and removal of the mold assemblies relative to a compacting vessel; and broken parts and pieces of parts are completely removed from each mold assembly by the dumping action which is provided. Equivalent structures can be substituted for those which have been shown and described. For example, the jaw members 30 of the dumping means can be urged toward each other by hydraulic means or by a spring element carried (in tension) within the chamber 46 instead of with the spring 36 and rod 38. Equivalent structures and functions are intended to be included in the definitions of the claims which follow.
