NUT-TAPPING MACHINE.
Specification of Letters Patent.
Patented Sept. 29, 1908.
Application iled August 24, 190e. Se/ral No. 331,825.
To all whom 'it'mafy concern:
Be it known that-I, OSCAR A. SMITH, al ,citizen ot' the United States, resldlng 1n tapping machines.
The object of the invention isto provide a machine whereby a series of nuts orl nutblanks or other members are successively brought to 'a certain part of a magazine `or other member; and while rigidly held in such position .are threaded by means of a tapping tool; in which machine the successive nut-blanks are tapped from opposite sides. Thatis, the tap-member enters the bore of one uut from the right hand side.
whileV thc sueceedingnut hasthe tap enter its bore from the left hand side.
. ln another applicationliled by Ine 0n the 16th day of August, 1906, Serial No. 330,894,
is shown and claimed the form of tap-meinber used in the present invention, which is, in the nature of a double-end reversible ta that is, the tap can "be passed Lentire yltlnough the bore of the nut-.blank to cut a thread t therein,` and then can" be passed through another nut in the opposite spiral direction, and operated entirely through the second member; the thread cut in `both the nut-blanks being identical. i
It is an object of the present invention toA provide an automatic machine for operating this reversible tap, whereby itis passed into and through a nutblank from one end, and' upon another nut-blank being placed 1nv the same position, the tap 1s moved endwise 1n the opposite direction to threadv the second blank. `And so on, each back" and forth movement of the tap causing the V.same thread to be cnt in the slwcessive blanks.
In the accompanyingiirawings, representing one en'ibodiinent of my invention, Figure l shows a front elevation; Fig. 2 is 'an-end elevation; 'Fig'. 3 is a `detail view in .elevavtion and section, showing one of the socketspmdles or operating the tap; .Flgx t 1s an'v end view of the latter spindle; Figs. 5, G and 7 show the tap with its operating spindles and amagazine for the nut-blanks, lthe` tap and spindles being in successivepositions;
Fig. 8 is a vertical section through tn e inagvazine, showing-its mechanism for feeding the nut-blankssuccessively; and Fig. 9 is a view of the tap.
The special form of tap that the machine is designed". to operate has the cutter portion ,a located at the intermediate part of a shank b, the teeth bein fully formed at the middlc portion fof tie cutter, but reduced th-w wards each end of the shank, instead of toward one end as in the usual construction. Theseteeth at one end are given the usual backward rake or inclination, but the rake at 'one end portion is in the opposite direction circumferentially from those at the other end. vThis is Vfor the reason that when one end of the tapis inserted, the cutting teeth adjacent'that end will have the usual negaf tive rake to commence cutting the threads in.
the nut. The tap havmg passed entirely through the nut, 1s operated endwise in the opposite direction for. the next blank. But, obviously', the tap must now be rotated in the opposite direction, since the thread out will now be the same as in the previous blank.. Therefore, :the .direction of rotation being reversed, the direction of the rake or inclination of the cutting teeth adjacent this end must be reversed.
Thesmachine comprises essentially two op' erating spindles that engage the opposite ends of the tap-shank respectively, and a magazine or holder, denoted generally by M, y
whereby the nutblanks can be successively fed to a certain position, and rigidly held in suclLpostion while being engaged by the tap. The tap is engaged by one spindle and passedinto the nut, by rotating the spindle at the same time advancing it; in other words, giving it a spiral movement. Upon the tap passing partly through the nutblank, as indicated in 6, lts emerging 4end is engaged by the spindle member on the opposite side, which obviouslyv must rotate at the same speed. vThe threads partially cut in the nut-blank will of themselves advance the tap, moving it into the second spindle socket. Thereupon, the lirst spindle upon approachingthe nut', will cease its advance, while the other spindle must retreat while rotating; that is, must niove spil-ally away from the magazine. Upon the thread portion of the tap disengaging the nut, the
second spindle will 'continue the advance o f the tap, thereby `causing it to travel entirel' .through the nutb lank. At this. stagfthe" einer verdrietig Corr 2 tapped blank is ejected, and the succeeding blank fed to and locked in the Same position. The. second spindle now has its movement arrested and .reversed to travel in the opposite rotative and advaneing direction; that is, is moved in an opposite. Spiral direction. This will carry the end that has liust moved out of the laat'y blank. first into the next blank, and the opposite end of the eutter portion will tiret engage the nut-blank to start the thread in its bore. The continued rotary movement of the spindle, together with the advaneiire` motion Caused by the threads of the cutter and nut-blank, will carry the tap on through the second blank. Upon its entering;l end passii'ig through the nut-blank it is engaged by the first spindle, that will now be given a Spiral movement corresponding to that of the operating spire dle. Upon the tap passing further through the blank, the Second Spindle will be arrested in its adwnieingl mov ement, and the lirst .spindle will retreat, earryinjel the tap entirely through the second blank and tree thereof. Thereupon this nut-blank is ejected and the succeeding one placed in tapping position. The cycle of operations is no n' repeated as described, each sueceedingy Initblank being tapped trom opposite --:ide..:, but. obviously the a1ne` identieal thread is formed in each nut.
In the construction shown, on a suitable frame-work F are mounted spindles 2 and 3, one at each end ot, the machine, that are in a'lineinent. Thene epindleel are carried in one or more bearings t and 5 at eaeh end. the spindles being endwise movable in the bearings well as rotatable.. Suitable meansare provided whereby each spindle rotated throughout its range ot' fndwiae movement. In the form shown. each spindle carries'` a gear G meshingl with an elongated pinion 7, the l.joar G remaining in mesh therewith throughout its endwise movement. The two pinions i' are fast on a Shalt S, extendingfrom end to end ot'v the machine, and driven by a pulley t) last thereon. Idle pulleys 1.0 and .ll are loose on the shaft on Aol'ipoeite Sides ot the pulley t), to which reversing belts 12 and l' are shil'ted, whereby the motion of the xsha'lt S is reverend in the usual manner from two opponitely moving; belts.
Each of the spindles is provided with nieann` for engaging and dieennaging the tap to rotate it and at the same time advance the tap. As shown, each `Spindle in provided with a socket member 141, IShown separately inl"ig. il and Ll. This soeket member ia provided with a bore l5 tittinnY the .ahanit' ot' the tap, with reduced portions lt', on oppoeite side ol the socket, engagine"` tial portionsl on the tap-nhanlv, to prevent rotation ol' the tap in the toeliet. ly means o l the, mam Saft the two apindles. will be nnultaneously revolved and their motion reversed. The spiral motion ot' the spindles and Sock ets is, in the preeentl oonntruetion, effected. by means ot cam-straps. A Shaft 17 is rotatable on the frame, preferably a' its lower part, and driven by a pulley 18 fait, thereon, troni a belt it), runningr on any suitalle counter-shaft, not shown. On the shait 7, near one end of the machine, is secured a drumjQO, provided with eanratrapajl and Q2. A lever 23 is pivoted on the machine bed and han a :forked end 2l eiigagint;` opposite sides of a disk 25 on the apindl i L. The lower end ot' the lever is engaged by the cam-straps Q1 and 22. TheSe strapey are no designed and located on the drum that the spindle will tiret be advanced in one direction, then allowedto rotate in such position without advancing, and then moved back in itel former position. Near the other end of the shaft li is a Similar drum 2U, provided with strap-cams 27 and 2H, that alternately engage the lower end ol a lever 2f) pivoted on the mat-lune bed. This, lever has a t'orkcd end 30 engaging a disk 31 on the spindle 3. By this means the `spindle Il is alternately moved in opposite directions, similar to the operation olf the spindle 2.
Means are provided whereby the revolu tion ol the driving shaft. S, and hence that ot' the two spindles, is reveraed at the proper time when the tap has pana-ed entirely through one blanlv' and another is presented l'or tapping. ',l`hiry means is in'el'erably eontrolled by the shat't 1T and timed relative to the position ot' the e-.inmtrapn on the eontrolliirtr drums. ln the eonatruetion illus trated, a drinn lZ is i'ast on one end of the Shaft l?. near the nervt ot' pulleys operatintr the shaft 'l`he drum in provided with a cani groove ll in itaV periphery, whose walls engage one end ol' a belt-shifter lever ill'. ly this means.. when the, eameatraps have :shifted the i pindle l to one end, the belty"hitter is operated to ahii't the drivin;r belt to the idle. pulley and bring the other belt on to tlnx drivin;A pulley. thereby reversingr the Spindles.
'l`he nut-blankel in the eonstruetion disA eloned. are l'ed through a magra/.ine or lube lt). who e bore is meh that the nuts can slide, down through the magazine. but nre prevented ''rom rotating therein or having` any movement exi-epi to advanee. 'l`he nuts are retained infoperative pofition by means; ot a lever -ll pivoted at l: on the lnzujazine. and having' a bent arm l arranged to engage the two lower rodea` ol' the nut-blank; thereby retainintr the blank in position for threading. rllu other end ll ol' the lever` 'upon being; roeked to cause the end li to move out. oi the tube and l'ree the nut` will engage the. lower side ot' the smreeding nut and prevent its :nlvaneement until the lirst nut han.' been removed. Should thinl tapped nut not fall-by gavity,-tlie arni infmov`` ing into position te engage the underside of` a succeeding nut blank will strike the upper ofthe next nut-blank' as soon as the arm 44 or rea-r sideof the tapped'or finished nut and start its downward movement. Upon the re-A turn movement of the lever, the arm 43 is' in position to arrest the downward movement releases the blank, permitting it to advance'. Suitable means are provided for rocking the arm 41. It is shown as havinga slotted'arm 45 that is engaged by a slide 46 movable ina p block 47. The slide 46, is controlled by a cam 48 that is perated from any convenient part of the machine. 'The cam .engages a roller 49 on tl lower end oitlie slide.
In he operation of the machineV the -tap engaged by one of the spindles, as spindle 3,
" is moved to the right While-rotating, toengage the positioned nut-blank. As the tap advances through the saine, the second spindle 2 is moved in. the opposite direction 'to receive the end ofthe tapas itzpasses through the blank. The spin es beingconstantly rotated in th same direction and at the samespeed, the will'have the tap-engai-ging portions always in the* samejrelative v'second spindle will Ubegi.

of the first spindle will be'. ,frest/ed,wh`ile the "ttf retreat. The
' threads started in the nut-blank will have the Yeffect of continuing i the edvvise movement of the tap and prevent t-h/e tap Lmoving endwisein the second spindle'socket. The retreat of the second 'spindlel will .continue and the tap will be passedjentirelyfthrough the nut, as shown in As soon as the tap is disengaged .from the first spindle, this spindle is caused' to retreat to its former position. The tapped blank Ais now ejected and a succeeding onelocked in the same' position. The straps onl the operating drum'ncW cause the second spindle to advance, and the end'of the,tap.that just' assed out of the last blank, is moved into t e now positioned' blank. But the' lbeltshilter has operated to reverse the drivin shaft 8,1and hence the rotation of the spindles, and the tap now moves .in the opposite'direction into the nutblank. A t this stage the yfirst spindle isk again caused to approach the magazine, and
as soon as the tap begins to pass through the boreof.the nut-blank its end isengaged y by the socket ofthe first spindle. .The latter indie now beginsto retreat,-and as soon as t e second spindle reaches the magazine, its forward movement is arrested, and thoftap carried on entirely free ofthe nut and niagazine, as indicated in Fig. 5'. -It is not neces'- sary, so far as the 'tap is concerned, that the' Vspindle on the opposite side from the tap be caused to retreat and then approach the magazine again, but kthis folloivs as a necessary consequence, as'at eacli rotation of the operating shaft, 17 the spindles must be given a complete`ieciproeation.
