MACHINE FOR PASTING PIECES 01? seems on 'snmin cennsg To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that-L Fnonon GRAUL, a citizen of the Empire of Germany, and a resident of -Leipzig-SchleussiCh, Kingdom of Saxony. Germany, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Machines v for Pasting Pieces of Goods on Sampledition thereto a pasting device and a device Cards, of which the following is a specification. This invention relates to a novel machine for pasting pieces of goods on sample cards.

According to the present invention the machine shall be used for pasting pieces of goods, cloth and the like on sample cards which comprises the usual means for placing the sample cardsin position and in adfor cutting the samples of the goods. The pasting and the cutting devices are so arranged thatthe paste supplying means as well as the suction device, which lifts ofl the samples of the shifting devices for goods are placed above the sample cards to be operated'on by means of a swing arm.

The invention is illustrated in the accompanying drawing in which;

1 Figure 1 represents in plan view the machine for pasting pieces of goods on sample cards which embodies in desirable form the present improvements. Fig. 2 illustrates in elevation one form of the machine. Fig. 3 shows .in elevation certain mechanism of same. Figs. 4 and 5 are plan views of the mechanism shown in Fig. 3. Figs. 6, 6 and? are plan views of certain modifications. Fig. 8 illustrates on an enlarged scale in partial sectional elevation a reciprocating card conveyor with grippers, Figs. 9 and 10 show the gripper arrangement in end scale:

Similar characters of reference denote like parts in all the figures.

Fig. v1. Th s nonveyer carries elastic zgrippets 4. 'llhese gri pers seize when moving towardthe pile at cards always the lowe t card and push it in the desired' position. On their backward movement these grippers shirt underneath the card and return into their initial position whereupon the described operation is repeated. As there are several grippers-of the described kind a card will be taken from underneath'the pile during-the .next operation, and the card previously removed therefrom will be guided to the glue supplying device and pasting station. During the next operation this is repeated and the pasted card is conducted to the device for pressing on the pieces of cloth. This latter device further transports same automatically to the delivery'station. render the construction and operation or the conveyerandgripper mechanism entirely clear,

conveyor 3 is reciprocated crank mechanism 2-. V 43%, d i and 4c4.-P are provided on the conveyer 3 as shown in detail in Figs. 8, 9 and 10. Each of those grippers is under a spring F, which is by means of the Pairs of grippers adapted to retain the upward andvertical position. The gripper end then seizes a sample card from the rear to-transport same. During the first movement of the conveyer the lower card is separatedfrom the pile by the grippers 4 and placed uponthe middle of the conveyer as shown in Figstl and 8, its location being designated by I in Fig. 8. During the second movement of the conveyer the grippers 4. remove a second card from the pile, also from below.- This card likewise is brought into the position I. Simultaneously the grippers 4? place the first transported card on the end of the conveyer as shown at H in Fig. 8. 1 In the position II the pieces of cloth-are brought to this card. During the third movement of the conveyer the grippers 4 seize another card from the pile and bring it into the position I. At the same time the grippers 4 transport the card from the position Patented tan. 2691915. Application flled'lebruary 1e, 1912. harmin 618,035. l

I will describe same As hereinbefore stated the gripper in its straightinto'the. position H and the I cutting mechanism the swing arms 8 and 9 are shownto begrippers 4 deliver the card with pieces of cloth thereon to the rollers 42. a

All the grippers rock backward under the cards durmg the backward motion of the 'conveyer and slide below the cards as shown in Fig. 10. The elasticity of the springs F is so little that they permit of the backward rocking of the grippers under the cards, but the springs grippers in their 1n1t1al vertical positionas soon as they have passed the card. i

In addition to the above described devices, a gluing device 5 shown 1n Fig. 1, a 6 which cuts strips of ,goods suitably conducted thereto and a suction'device 7, are arranged so that a swing arm 8 is capable of gluing the card now below same. A second swing arm 9 takes up the cut piecesof goods and guides same onto the card.

In the device illustrated in Figs. 2 and 3 provided, the first with a number of glue supplying members 10 and the second with a number of suction devices 7. These members 10'and 7 are rotatable around a vertically mounted axle and may also be moved up and down. This up and downward movement of the axle is caused by a cam disk 12 on the main shaft 21. Above the cam disk there is a vertical axle 14 with reduced lower end portion. A roller 13 is rotatably mounted on said reducedlower end portion and adapted to contact with the cam disk 12 whereby the up and downward movement above mentioned is effected. The shaft 14 is guided in a sleeve 15. Another shaft 11 rests with its bottom end on the shaft 14 which is therefore forced to perform the up and downward movement of the same. The sleeve 15is rotatably mounted with a shifting disk 16 which has two oppositelvarranged slots 17 and forms four inwardly curved surface portions 18 which cooperate with the stop disks 19, 20 when after rotation the shifting disk shall' be securely held in place as shown in detail in Figs. 4 and 5. The entire shifting motion is effected from the main shaft 21 which is connected to the driving shaft. On said main shaft there are, 'in addition to the cam disk 12 which effects the up and downward movement, two bevel-gears 22, 23 see Fig. 2. The

bevel-gear 22 drives the bevel-gear 24: toward the left and the bevel-gear 23 the bevel gear 25 toward the right shown in Fig. 3. The bevel-gears '24, 25 are connected with ,two shift leversv 28, 29 by means of the slots 17 of the shifting disk 16 and turns same, in the direction of the arrow 31 for exactly 90 are strong enough to place the turned to its initial position.

and when in this position the roller-'30 leaves the slot again. In this man- 'ner the-slot 17 has been turned for 90 as well as the roller 30 which latteris now together with the shifting disk 16 in the position shown in Fig. 5. Now the mechanism is at rest for a moment during which time the stop disks 19 locate themselves in the in wardly curved portions 18 of the' shifting disk 16 whereby this mechanism is securely held. During this short period of rest the up 'or downward movement of the axle 14: takes place for the purposeof gluing the cards and bringing the pieces of goods upon same. During the following further motion the stop disk 19 leaves the inwardly curved portions 18, the roller 30 reaches into the slot 17 whereby the shifting disk 16 has re- After this movement there is again a short periodof rest during which time the stop disks 20 enter the curved surface portions 18 and hold securely the shifting disk. The axle 14 is secured againstrotation by means of a cam disk 32 in slot 33 of the permanently fixed wheel box 34. The axle 11 however is taken along by a cam disk 35 which is located in the slot 36 of the sleeve 15. This shifting mechanism is arranged as well for the swing arm 9 as for the swing arm 8 as shown in Fig. 2.' Both movements may be so adjusted that, after the card has been-- glued by the glue supplying members 10 and the latter are on their return way, the swing arm 9 presses the samples of cloth upon the -glued spots. -The swing arm 9 further is so constructed as to form a suction conduit therefore it is connected with a rarefied space or an air pump 38 by means of a hose 37, as shown in Fig. 1.- On the front end of said suction conduit-there are suction mouth pieces 7 which are adapted to be set upon the cut off pieces of cloth. By means of the suctionthese pieces are attracted and held during the swinging motion of the arm 9 and finally they are placed upon the glued portions of the cards and pressed thereon. The mechanism illustrated in elevation in Fig. 2 further shows how the glue roller 5' may be driven by means of bevel-gears and cord, chain or belt devices. The operation of the device for-pressing on the pieces of cloth maybe efiected in similari manner while the operation of the cutting mechanism is efi'e'cted by means of the drawingrod 39.

brought "into the desired position 40 as shown in Fig. 1. During this phase of the operation the swing arm 8, Fig. 2, is setinto motion, the glue supplying members 10 pass over the glue roller 5 and take off somev of 1,1ae,eos s goods 41 have been automatically moved. forward a determined length and are cutofl by the cutting .device. .The cut pieces are taken upby the suction device and during the return of same taken above the glued card by means of the swing arm 9.- When in this position said swing arm- 9 descends with the suction mouth pieces ,7,.which press the samplepieces :upon the glued spots, are raised again and return into their initial position whereupon the cycle of operations is repeated. During the next operation the cardnow covered with the sample pieces glued thereon is conducted to a system of rollers 42. These rollers press the sample pieces again tightly onto the cards and transport the finished cards automatically through the roller 43 out of the'machine.

It is evident that the detailed construction of the single mechanisms above mentioned is not of importance for the present invention. The arrangements of'the swing arm may also be changed for instance, so that two, three or more sets of sample pieces may be pasted upon a card as shown in Fig. 6. Assuming that two sets of sample pieces are to be placed upon one card then the glue supplying members 10 on the swing arm 8 'are so constructed that two rows of glued spots are produced on the card. After this has been effected by a turning movement of the swing arm 8 then the swing arm returns into its initial position and the two swing arms 9 are brought upon the card as indicated by the elongated curved arrows, shown in Fig. 6. In this manner two sets or rows of sample pieces are placed upon the one card. This arrangement is shown in Fig. 6 while at rest. Fig. 6 shows in detail view the part 10 with two pasting faces thereon. The mo-' tion of the swing arms 9 is effected by means of the two tooth wheels 44, 45.

The double arrangement of the machine may be effected by providing two automatic card-passes, a double swing arm, for the gluing device which in turn is then provided at each side with'a corresponding cutting and suction device as indicated in Fig. 7.
