Description

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION

The present invention relates to the general field of unwinding devices. Specifically the invention relates to apparatus for dispensing cable from coils of such cable, particularly to apparatus which are used for dispensing electrical cable. Numerous such devices are known in the art.

BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE INVENTION

It is an object of the present invention to provide a cable dispenser which is simple to use. It is also an object of the invention to provide a cable dispenser that will permit cable to be readily unwound from a coil of cable. Another object of the invention is to provide a cable dispenser having means for holding a coil of cable in place on the dispenser. It is also an object of the invention to provide a cable dispenser which is designed to prevent the tangling or spinning off of cable during unwinding of the cable. It is a further object of the invention to provide a cable dispenser that can be transported from place to place. It is yet a further object of the invention to provide a cable dispenser that can be conveniently stored. These and other objects are attained by the present invention as is apparent from the following description.

The invention comprises a device for unwinding a coil of cable, the device comprising a base, a radial bearing, a shaft, a cable support and a cable guide. The base has a hole in which the radial bearing is fixedly mounted. The bearing comprises an inner race and an outer race, the inner race circumscribes a hole. The shaft has a means for engaging the inner race of the bearing while the shaft passes through the hole circumscribed by the inner race of the bearing. The cable support has a hole through which passes the shaft, and the cable support is seated on the bearing in engagement with the inner race of the bearing so that the cable support can rotate freely with respect to the base to allow cable to be readily unwound from a coil of cable which is placed on the cable support, the coil of cable being placed on the cable support so that the shaft passes through the center of the coil. In one embodiment described below, the cable support is designed so that it can be compacted for more convenient storage. The cable guide is mounted on the shaft after the coil of cable has been placed on the cable support by means of a hole in the cable guide. The cable guide is mounted so that it abuts the coil of cable, holds the coil in place and guides the cable as it is unwound. Thus, the cable is readily unwound without tangling or spinning off. The cable guide can also function as a handle which can be used to transport the cable dispenser.

In an especially preferred embodiment, the device comprises two radial bearings surrounded by a sleeve, instead of a single radial bearing. The use of two bearings is preferred because it provides greater lateral stability to the shaft. The first radial bearing comprises an inner race and outer race; the inner race of the first bearing circumscribes a hole. The first bearing is fixedly mounted in the hole in the base. The sleeve is mounted so that it surrounds the outer race of the first bearing and so that one end of the sleeve abuts the base. The second radial bearing also comprises an inner race and an outer race; the inner race of the second bearing circumscribes a hole. The second bearing is mounted in the sleeve so that the sleeve also surrounds the outer race of the second bearing. The shaft has a means for engaging the inner race of the first bearing while the shaft passes through the holes circumscribed by the inner races of the first and second bearings. The cable support is mounted in engagement with the shaft and is seated on the second bearing in engagement with the inner race of that bearing so that the cable support can rotate freely with respect to the base to allow cable to be unwound.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE PRESENTLY PREFERRED EMBODIMENT

Referring to the figures, the base 1 consists of a single approximately square piece of aluminum. Alternatively, the base can be made of any other lightweight metal. The corners of the base are bent downward and flattened to form feet 2 for the base. In the center of the base is a hole 3.

Two bearings 4, 5 are mounted on the base. The bearings are radial ball bearings which are also capable of sustaining a thrust load and which do function primarily as axial or thrust bearings during operation of the dispenser. Each bearing comprises an outer race 6 and an inner race 7. The outer race has a flange 8. The inner race circumscribes a hole 9.

The bearing 4 is mounted on the base by being pushed into the hole 3 from the bottom of the base until the flange 8 on the outer race of bearing 4 comes into contact with the bottom of the base. Since the hole in the base is slightly smaller in diameter than the diameter of the outer race of bearing 4, this mounting procedure fixes bearing 4 firmly in place.

Next a metal sleeve 10 is placed around the part of the outer race of bearing 4 which protrudes above the base so that one end of the sleeve is in contact with the base. The sleeve is a cylindrical piece of metal (such as a transverse section of pipe) having a diameter chosen so that the sleeve fits very snugly around the outer race of bearing 4.

Next, bearing 5 is pushed into sleeve 10 until the flange of the outer race of bearing 5 comes into contact with the end of sleeve 10 not in contact with the base. Thus, the height of the sleeve must be chosen so that the two bearings can be mounted as described without any impediment of the rotation of the inner races of the two bearings. Also, as is apparent, the hole circumscribed by the inner race of bearing 4 and the hole circumscribed by the inner race of bearing 5 will be in alignment when the hearings are mounted as described.

Although the use of two bearings mounted as just described is preferred because this arrangement provides greater lateral stability to the shaft, the results of the invention can also be achieved by the use of one bearing only. When one bearing is used, it should be mounted as described for bearing 4. No sleeve is used, and the cable support 16 is mounted in engagement with the inner race of bearing 4.

The shaft 11 is a threaded metal rod. A nut 12 is screwed onto one end of the shaft, and the shaft is then passed through the hole circumscribed by the inner races of bearings 4 and 5 from the bottom of the base until the nut 12 abuts the bottom of the inner race of bearing 4.

Nut 13 is screwed onto the other end of the shaft and is screwed down until it tightly abuts the inner race of bearing 5. Thus, the shaft is held firmly in engagement with the inner races of bearings 4 and 5 and can freely rotate.

Seated on top of nut 13 is the cable support 16 on which, in operation, is placed on the coil of cable to be unwound. Washers 14, 15 may optionally be used as spacers between nut 13 and cable support 16 if needed to allow for free rotation of the cable support.

The cable support comprises two arms 17, 18 which form a cross. Arm 17 is a single piece of aluminum pipe. Arm 18 comprises one piece of aluminum pipe 19 attached to two other pieces of aluminum pipe 20, 21 in such a manner that a gap 22 is left between pieces 20 and 21, the gap being spanned by piece 19. Gap 22 is slightly wider than the diameter of arm 17 so that arm 18 can span arm 17 at the point of intersection of the two arms of the cross. Piece 19 is attached to pieces 20 and 21 by soldering. Other means of attachment could be used. Also, it is possible to form arm 18 by bending a single piece of aluminum pipe. Aluminum pipe is used because it is lightweight, but other metal pipe or solid pieces of metal could be used.

The shaft passes through holes 23, 24 in the center of the arms of the cable support. The shaft passes through the cable support at the point of intersection of the two arms.

Located on the shaft above the cable support is a wing nut 25 which is tightened to hold the cable support in engagement with the shaft and with the inner race of bearing 5 (through nut 13) so that the cable support can freely rotate relative to the base.

When the cable dispenser is not in operation (as during storage or when it is being transported from place to place), the wing nut 25 can be loosened and arm 18 lifted and rotated so that it is substantially parallel to arm 17. Arm 18 is then lowered so that it is seated on top of arm 17. Arm 18 is then lowered so that it is seated on top of arm 17. Wing nut 25 is next tightened to hold the arms in place, and the cable dispenser is ready to be transported or stored.

The arms of the cable support may also optionally have attached sliding clamps 26. These clamps function to abut the coil of cable on the inside of the coil to prevent shifting of the coil during unwinding.

Cable guide 27 is a single arm having the ends of the arm bent upward relative to the center of the arm when the cable guide is mounted on the shaft. The cable guide is made from a single piece of aluminum pipe, but other metal pipes and solid metals may be used. The shaft passes through a hole 28 in approximately the center of the cable guide.

The cable guide is mounted on the shaft after a coil of cable has been placed on the cable support for unwinding. The cable guide is mounted so that it abuts the top of the coil of cable. The function of the cable guide is to hold the coil of cable in place by abutting against the top of the coil and to prevent the cable from tangling or spinning off the top of the dispenser while the cable is being unwound. The cable guide can also function as a handle whereby the dispenser may be transported from place to place.

In operation, a coil of cable is placed on the cable support so that the shaft passes through the approximate center of the coil of cable. Then the cable guide is placed on the shaft and lowered until it abuts the coil of cable. The cable guide is held tight against the coil of cable by means of a wing nut 19 which is tightened. If the optional sliding clamps 26 are being used, they are next engaged so as to abut the inside of the coil of cable. The cable is then unwound by simply pulling on the free end of the cable.

Although the invention has been described with respect to specific embodiments, it is not intended that the invention be limited to these embodiments. Those skilled in the art will appreciate that other equivalent means of practicing the invention exist.
