WEINIG-MACHINE.

Specification of Letters Patent. A Application led September 24, 1908. Serial No. 454,658.

Patented Dee. 22, 1908.

To all whom it 'ma-y concern:

Be it known that I, GEORGE M. DIEHL, a citizen of the United States, residing at Peru, in the county of Miami and State of Indiana, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Marking-Machines, of which the following is a specification.

The object of my invention is to produce a machine capable ofdpiroducing upon successive articles an in vidualizing mark the character of which may be readily maintained or changed as desired, the apparatus being particularly designed for use in laundries to properly mark and individutlize the property of different customers. It is of course to be understood however that the machine is not at all limited to such use.

The accompanying drawings illustrate an embodiment of my invention, Figure 1 being a side elevation; Fig. 2 a vertical section; Fig. 3 a front elevation with some of the parts broken away; Fig. 4 an axial section through the main drive shaft; Fig. 5 a plan of some of the parts shown in 4; Fig. 6 a detail showing the character of movement of the inkin pad; F iff. 7 a side elevation, on a larger sc.;I e, of the orWard ends of the carryarms for the removable type wheels; Fig. 8 a side elevation of the removable type' wheels; Fig. 9 a detail of the operating end of one of the setting arms.

In the drawings, 20 indicates a suitable frame upon each side of which are pivoted, at 21 and 22 respectively, swinging arms 23 and 24 the forward ends of which are connected in airs by links 25. The u ger end of each hn 25 is forwardly entende eyond the forward end of arm 23 and provided with a notch 26, and each link 25 is provided, near its lower end and on its inner face, with an inwardly projecting in 27 adapted. to reoeiveahe notched en 28 of an arm 29... Secured to the middles of the two arms 29 are theends of a pin 30 which form an axis for a plurality of t e wheels 31 provided upon periphenes with amultiplicity cfm-arking members 32. Each arm 29 is rovided with ka. clamping screw 33 ad ted to enter the corresponding notch 26 clamp arms il 29 .and 25 together. ylivoted at 34 to the onterends of arms 29,1`s aU-sha ed detent 35 the cross bar 36 of which is a apted to be dawn into engagement with the marking elements 31, between any two porri-ns 32 correspond' upper end of one arm of detent 35 is beveled at 37 so as to engage a roller or pin 38 so that the cross bar 36 will be withdrawn from the members 31 when the arts are in the normal position shown in igs. 1 and 2.

v Journaled in the frame 26 upon pin 50 is a plurality of gear Wheels 39, one for each element 31. Journaled upon the cross pin 41 is a plurality of setting se ments 42 one for each one of gears 39 eac of said segments having a range of movement sufficient to produce nearly a complete rotation of its marking member 31. For convenience 1n setting the setting segments 42 I provide each one of said segments with a setting arm 43 said arms being rejected through between bars 44 provi ed upon their under edges with ratchet teeth 45 adapted to be engaged by a detent 46 carried by the adjacent arm 43. Lying adjacent each lever 43 is an arc-shaped plate 47 upon which appears a series of characters correspending in character and relative position to the characters carried by that marking Wheel 31 corresponding to the adjacent operati 0' arm. Arranged adjacent the notched ars 44 are releasing bars 48 adapted to be brought into en agement with the detents 46 so as to Withdrawthem from the teeth 45 and permit the returnV of the segments 42 to normal cstion by their respective springs 49. y suita le mounting may be used for the operating bars 48. In the drawings I show each of said bars rovided at its ends with inclined slots 48', 48 through which stationary pins 51 51 ass. The several bars 48 are connected b 52 with a lever 53 which. in turn, 1s connected to a push pin 54 by means of which it ma rated. In order to prevent accidental displacement of gears 39 I provide a cross bar 55 adapted to lie between any two teeth of the several gears 39'and this cross bar is carried by levers 56 controlled by a push in 57.

Journaled in suitable bearings on the main frame20isamaindrive shaft 61 ha secured thereto a pair of cams 63 63 eac of which receives, and operates u on, a pin or roller 64 carried by the rear en of the adjacent .arm 24, the rear end of each arm 23 being provided with counterweight 65 to balance wheels 31. Mounted upon one end of shaft 51 adjacent, and outside of, one of the i5 thereof, by suitable light springs 40. The i cams 63, is a. friction clutch member 65 con- 11o g i l 907,577

. nected to the cam 63 by screws or pins 66 in adapted to be engaged by a stop iinger 72 and thereby withdrawn inwardly against the action of spring 73 and the springs 67.

Finger 72 is pivoted at 74 on the main frame and is connected to an arm 75 which extends downwardly and is connected to a link 76 which, at its forward end, isconnected to a rocking anvil 77 provided at its upper end with a work-receiving portion 78 cushioned on the rocking anvil by means of a spring 79. In order to lock the anvil in working position I provide va. detent 81 adapted to drop into a notch 82 formed in link 76 and detent 81 is provided with an u Wardly extending arm 83 arranged in t. e plane of a cam 84 secured to shaft 61.

In the form of machine shown I have shown marking instruments intended to applv an 'indelible or other ink to the material to be marked and therefore, in order to supply the; marking instrument with a sup ly of ink and in order to keep the mar ing members or type free from lint I provide the following mechanism. Pivoted at 85 on the main frame is a pair of levers 86 the lower ends of which .carry a brush 87 adapted to be swung into enga ,ement with the type 32 when the same are owered to a 'proper position. The upper ends of levers 86 are connected to links 88 which links are connected to levers 89 connected to links 91 provided at their lower ends with rollers 92 adapted tov be engaged b cams 93 carried by shaft 61. Also pivote to the main frame is a pair of levers 100 the upper ends of which are connected by links 101 with levers 102 (which may be conveniently mounted upon the same pivot as the pivot of levers 89) und these levers 102 are connected to links 103 provided at their lower ends with rollers 104 adapted to e age cams 105 carried by shaft 61. The 91 and 103 are controlled in their' movement by links 107 and 108 respectively. Pivoted to and between the lower ends c links 100, at 110, is aninking pad 111 adapted, when the parts are in normal position, to lie in engagement with a Sup ly pad V1.12 the inner end of which lies wit a reservoir 113 readily sup lied through a tube 114. Secured to the p 111 isanarm 115 a in116lyin within l. slot 117 formed in the lower end o a lever 'he inner end of bar 68 I Levers 100 and 118 are normaliy drawn to the position shown in Fig. 1 by light springs 121 and 122, respectively.

In order to drive the machine, any suitable clutch coperating with the clutch member may be provided. I have found a convenient form to be a cup-shaped clutch meinber 1 31 coaxial with tne clutch member 65 and carried by the shaft 132 of a suitable motor 133.

Flanking the work-recci'vvhig ortion 78 of the swinging anvil are suitable andle meinbers 135. A sprin 156 is attached to link 76 and is adapte to normally vhold the swinging anvil 77, and the stop finger 72, in the position shown in full lines 1n Fig. 2.

A spring 137 is attached to detent 81 so as to ur e it toward the osition shown in dotte lines in F ig. 2. the form shown, this sprintf 136 is also connected to arm 75 and thereibre must be somewhat lighter than the spring 136.

The operation is as follows z-Startin with the parts in the positions shown in ful lines in Figs. 1 and 2, the 0 erator pushes push pin 57 inwardly and hol `s the same in that p0- sitiou in one .hand while, with the other, arms 43 are moved in order to shift segments 42 so as to 'bring the desired portions 32 of any number of the marking members 31 to marking position, this being indicated by the position of the several arms 43 relative to the indicators 47, and the segments 42 being held in place by the detents 46. With the number of parts shown in the drawings the number of combinations of characters is very great indeed and when the desired combination has been set pin 57 will be released, whereu on bar 55 will drop between two teeth ci) each one of the gears 39 and thus prevent an further movement thereof.

hereupon t e operator will lac-e the article to be marked upon the anv' portion 78 and will swindg the anvil to the position indicated in dotte lines in Fig. 2, thus drawing finger 72 up awa from the projected portion 71 of bar 68. `his movement permits detent 81 to drop into notch 82 so as to hold the anvil in recording positionand permits springs 73 and 67 to urge the friction clutch member 65 intoengagement with the coperating clutch.

Thereupon a rotation of shaft 61 is had in the direction indicated by the arrow. The first movement withdraws the inclined u per end 37 of detent 35 from roller 38 and t us mits'the deteni to dro between the a jacent two teeth of each o the marking members 31 and thus hold the same against any possibility of misplacement. Continued rotation of shaft 61 brings cams 1 05 into engage- 325 ment with their respective rollers 104 and, through links 103, levers 102, links 101 and levers 100, swing the inking pad 111 forward into agement with the marking members 118 pivoted at 119 on the main frame. l 31, sai marking members,-jinoving down- 130 ward in the meantime and the inking nad being turned upwardly by the action o1' levers 118, arms 115, ins 116 and slots 117. The inking pad is quickly withdrawn, as cams 105 pass rollers 104, and the marking members are continued in their downward movement by cams'GS such cams being so shaped as to carry the marking members down with suflicient speed to cause them to strike the anvil and to compress spring 79 and thus impress the ink upon the goods placed upon the portion 78. Continued movement of shaft 61 causes a retraction of the marking members toward normal position and, as they move upwardly cams 93 are brought under rollers 92 so as to swing the brush 87 (through links 91, lever 89, link 88, levers 86) into engagement With the recently used portion of the marking members and free them from lint. The brush 87 is quickly returned to its normal posit-ion and the marking members 31 brought into mesh with their respective gears 39. Sometime before the resumption or r. ormal position of the marking members, cam 84 is brought into engagement with arm 83 of detent 81 so as to withdraw it from notch 82 and permit the anvil to resume its normal osition, this movement at the same time ringing finger 72 down into the path of movement of the projection 71 of bar 68 so that said finger 72 serves to draw bar 68 'm- Wardly and withdraw the clutch member from the driving clutch member 131. If a considerable number of articles are to be marked with the same distinguishing mark the operator continues to place the articles in succession upon the anvil portion 78 and return the same to the position indicated by dotted lines in Fig. 2, whereupon the operation will be repeated, no change in the marking instruments taking 1piace during these successive operations. f a change in setting of the marking instruments is dbsired the o erator pushes push pin 54 so as to bring t 1e releasing se ment 48 into en a ement with theseveral etents 46 thus wituawing them from the ratchet teeth 45 and permitting springs 49 to cause the segments 42 to resume their normal positions thus cnerating, through the respective gears 39, upon the severa vmarking members 31 to return them to normal or zero position. If a second marking action upon the piece is desired it is merely necessary for the operator to hold-the anvil in the receiving posltion at the time when datent 81 is bein withdrawn.

It will be noticed tnat, by releasing the damping screws 33, the marking members 31 sul and quickly withdrawn and rep aced .so t at, idesired, a plurality of structures auch as is shown in Fig. 8 may be Vprovided each with a characteristic type, tllxlus greatly the range of the mac lne.
