To all whom it may concem:
Be it known that I, FRANK'P. Bo'NIuIE, a citizen of the United States of America, 'residing at Monessen, in thecounty of \Vestmoreland and State of Pennsylvania, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Tin-Transferring Machines, of which the following is a specification, reference being bad therein to the accompanying drawing.
This invention relates to a tin transferring machine, particularly designed for transferring packs of tin from the doubler to a furnace.
' The primary object of my invention isto provide a labor savin devlce that will dispense with the use 0 workmen, heretofore employed for transferring tin from a doubling machine to the heating furnaces.
Another object of this invention is toprovide'a conveyer of a simple, durable and inexpensive construction that will positively convey packs of'tin to a heating furnace.
WVith the above and other objects in view which will more readily appear as the invention is better understood, the same con sists in the novel construction, combination and arrangement of parts to be resently described, and then specifically poluted out in theappended claims.
Y Fign-rel is a side elevation of a transferring mezchine constructed in accordance with my invention, Fig. 2 is a plan view of the same showing the arrangement thereof with respect to the heating furnaces and the doubling machine, Fig. 3 is a longitudinal sectional view of the machine, Fig. 4 is a cross sectional view thereof, and Fi 5 is a perspective view of one of the eflectors emp oyed, detached from the machine.
To put my invention into practice, I provide a conveyer embodying a trestle ora standprovided with means for conve ing packs of tin plate from a doubling mac iine 1, (shown conventionally in Fig. l) to a heating furnace or furnaces, two of such furnaces being indicated at-2 and 3 in Fig.
, 2 in the resent illustration. Said conveyer or trans erring machine is located in front of the furnace or furnaces, and in front of the doubling machine 1, whereby it is only necessary for an operator to place the double packs of tin plates upon the conveyer, by which they will be carried to the furnace or furnaces, and, by means hereinafter described, will be directed into the furnace or 29 which is received 1n a bearin portion of their length intermediate their ends as at 8, see Figs.v 1 3, to provide for the d stance in height between the doubling machlne and the entrance to the furnace or furnaces 2 and 3.
Journaled in the sidebars 4 and 5 are shafts 9, 10, 11 12, and 13, the shaft 9 havlng sprocket wheels 14, the shaft 10 having sprocket wheels 15, the shaft 11 having sprocket wheels 16 and 17, the shaft 12 having sprocket wheels 18 and 19, and the shaft 13 having sprocket wheels 20, this latter Shaft being also provided with a pulley or belt wheel 21. Engaging the sprocket wheels 14, 15, and 16 are sprocket-chains 22, engaging the sprocket wheels 17 and 18 are s rocket chains 23, and engaging the sproc et wheels 19 and 20 are sprocket chains 24. The. sprocket chains 22, 23 and 24 are provided with pins 25 for engagement with a pack of tin plates, the pins 25 of the chains 22, 23, and 24 which lie adjacent the outer side rail of the stand being arranged slightly in advance of the pins on the chains 22, 23 and 24 which lie adjacent to the inner side rail of the conveyer stand.
The conveyer is provided in front of the furnace 2, with a deflector 26 and a similar deflector 28 is provided in front of the furnace 3, whereby'the packs of tin plates as they are carried along by the conveyer chains are deflected from the strai ht path and caused to be rojected into either the furnace 2, or the urnace 3, as may be desired. The deflectors 26 and 28 are substantiall similar in construction, each having notc es 27 to provide clearance for the conveyer chains 22. Each deflector is also provided on its inner end with a in 28 received in, sockets 28 provided t erefor on the side rail 4. The outer end of the deflector 28 ishowever provided with a pintle 29 carried by the side rail 5, this pintle being of sufficient length to permit of the deflector 28 being elevated so as to disengage the pin 28 on the inner end thereof from its socket 28,
- at which time the deflector 28 may be swung around on its pintle 29' so as to be out of the way of the tin plates on the conveyer chain 22, that said plates may be carried into engagement with the deflector 26, and by said I latter deflector projecting into the furnace 2.
Secured to the side rail 4: are arms 30 which are bent upwardly at their inner ends,
. and are provided with beveled blocks 31 adjacent to the sprocket chain 22 that travels beside the side rail 4, the function of which blocks is to elevate the packs of tin plates so as to release the same from the pin on the conveyer chains, as will more fully appear in the operation.
Operation: With the transferring machine driven from a suitable source of power by a belt 32 driving the'shaft 13, a pack of tin plates is placed upon the conveyer chains 24, and by said chains is carried and delivered to the conveyer chains 23, and by to be supported at an, an
veyer chain whereby the outer edge of the these chains the tin plates are carried by and delivered to the conveyer chains 22. The location of the pins 25 in the manner afore described, causes the pack of tin plates g e upon the conpack will first engage the deflectors 26 or 27. These deflectors are adapted to twist the packs around until they enter the furnace or furnaces, the beveled blocks 31 at this time elevating the packs so that they are released from the conveyer chains 22, and by this time the packs have been so positioned that they will readily slide into the furnace or furnaces. When the first pack of tin plates is placed on the conveyer chains, the deflector 28is elevated and swung out of the vention, it will be understood that various changes may be made in the details of construction without departing from the spirit of the invention.
Having now described my invention what I claim as new, is
1. A tin transferring machine for conveying tin plates from a doubling machine to furnaces, comprising a conveyer support,-
shafts journaled in said su port, sprocket wheels mounted upon said shafts, conveyer chains adapted to travel over said wheels, pins carried by said chains for engaging carried by said support for guiding packs of tin plates therefrom, one of said deflectors being pivotally connected to said support and adapted to be elevated and swung out of the path of travel of said chains, and beveled blocks arranged adjacent to said deflectors for elevating said packs of tin plates and releasing the same from said conveyer chains.
2. A tin transferring machine for conveying tin from a doubling machine to furnaces, comprising a conveyer support, shafts carried thereby, sprocket wheels mounted upon said shafts, conveyer chains adapted to travel over said wheels, pins carried by said chains for engaging packs of tin plates and sup porting the same at an angle to said chains, and curved deflectors carried by said support for guiding packs of tin therefrom, one of said deflectors being pivotally" connected to said support and adapted to be elevated and swung out of the path of travel of said chains. V V
3. A tin transferring machine for conveying tin plates from a doubling machine to a furnace, comprisin a conveyer support, conveyer chains carrie by said support, a curved deflector arranged in front of the furnace for 'deflecting packs of tin from said conveyer chains into said furnace, and means arranged in front of said furnace for engagementwith the tin plates to elevate same and release them from the conveyer chains.
4. A tin transferrin machine for conveying tin plates from a oubling machine to a furnace com risin a conve er su ,ort having portions thereof on different horizontal planes, conveyer chains carried by said sup port, means"arranged in the path of; travel of said conveyer chains for deflecting the pack of tin plates into said furnace, said means being movable out of the way of the path of travel of said chains.
5. In a tin transferring machine, means for conveying packs oftin plates from a doubling machine and transferring the same into a furnace, comprising a plurality of r 1 conveyer chains, means extending across the path of travel of said chains for pro ecting packs of tin plate intosaid furnace, and
means arranged adjacent the chains to be engaged by said packs of tin plates for elevating the latter out of engagement with the chains. I V
In testimony whereof I aflix my signature in the presence of two Witnesses.
