Specification of Letters Patent.
Patented Nov. 28, 1916.
Application lerd February 1,8, 1916.,` lSerial No. 79,207.
To all whom t may concern.'
Be it known that I, HANS ACKERMANN, a subject of the Emperor of Germany, residing at San Francisco, in the county of San Francisco and State of California, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in LabelePasting Machines; and I` dol hereby declare the following to be a full, clear, and exact description of the invention, lsuch as will enable .others skilled inthe art to which it appertains to make and use the same. Y
' This invention relates to machines for applying paste to labels and other paper sheets, and has for its primary object to provide a novel ltype of paste applying roller in combination with meansfor guiding or lifting the labels off of theroller.y after the paste has been applied thereto, and thus prevent the labels from adhering to the roller and being carried therewith into thepaste container.
Another object is the provision of means associated with the label lifting or guiding fingers fo-r removably securing the latter in operative position with relation to the paste applying roller. Y
With these and other objects in view, the invention consists in the novel construction combination and arrangement of parts as will be hereinafter specifically described, claimed and illustrated in the accompanying drawing, in which:
Figure 1 represents a plan view of the improved roller and guide fingers, the paste container being removed, and Fig. 2 represents a transverse sectional view through the paste container illustrating the roller and guide fingers in end elevation.Y
Referring to the drawing in detail, wherein similar reference numerals Vdesignate corresponding parts throughout the several views, the numeral 5 indicates a preferred type of paste container upon which is sup* ported a shaft 6, supporting the paste-applying roller7. The roller 7 is of such diameter as to project into the container 5 and is adapted to run in the paste contained in said container.
The periphery of the roller 7 is formed with a plurality of uniformly spaced circumferential grooves 8, receiving the curved portions 9 of a plurality of guide fingers, having straight forward ends 10 projecting forwardly of the roller 7 and over 'the front edge of the paste container 5. The rear ends 11 of the fingers are directed angularly in a horizontal plane and support a horizontally disposed bar 12. Adjacent their forward ends 10 the guide fingers are permanently secured to a transverse connecting rod 13. A deflector plate la, having a beveled rear edge is secured to the under portions of the straight forward ends 10 of the fingers adjacent the front surface of the paste applyingroller 7.
The several lingers 9 are retained in proper position with relation to the roller 7 by a pair of, spring retaining members 15 arranged in the opposite ends of the roller 7 and having curved extremities 16 removably engaged over the terminals ofthe rear andl front rods l2 and 13, respectively. The central portions of the retainingy members 15 extend under and resiliently press against the lower portion of the supporting shaft 6, thereby causing the opposite curved ends 16 thereof to exert downward pull upon the rear and front rods l2 and 13.
As clearly illustrated in Fig. 2 the outer surfaces of the curved portions 9 of the guide fingers lie iush with the outer surface of the roller 7, and thus permit the labels or other articles to which paste is to be applied to lie fiat upon the roller and insure an even distribution of the paste thereon. LAsthe labels are carried with the roller 7 in the directionk of rotation of the latter, as indicated by arrows in Figs. l and 2, the forward edges of the labels are engaged with the straight forward extremities 10 of the guide fingers, 4and are thereby lifted from the roller and deposited forwardly of the latter. The guide ngers may be quickly and conveniently removed from the roller 7 to permit of cleaning thereof by disengaging the ends 16 of the retaining memkbers from the rods 12 and 13, and subsequently lifting the curved portions 9 of the guide fingers out of the grooves 8 of the roller.
What is claimed is:
1. In a pastek applying machine, a paste container, a roller supported in said container having a plurality of uniformly spaced circumferential grooves, a plurality of fingers arranged in said grooves and prjecting forwardly of said roller, and a deflector plate secured to said fingers having a beveled edge engaging said roller.
2. In a paste applying machine, a container, a roller supported in said container having a Vplurality of circumferential grooves, a plurality of fingers arranged in said groo-ves and projecting forwardly of said roller, means connecting said fingers forwardly and rearwardly of said roller,
tainer, a shaft supported in Vsaid container,
a roller suported on said shaft having' a'plurality. of circumferential grooves, a plurality of guide lingers arranged in said grooves and projecting forwardly and rearwardly of said roller, rods connected with the opposite extremities of said ngers forwardly and rearwardly of said roller, and spring retaining members having curved ends engaged with said rods and extending under Said shaft for securing said fingers in operative position with relation to said'roller.
4. In` a paste applying machine, a container, a roller supported in said container 'S having a plurality of circumferential rooves a luralit of fingers arranged in said grooves and projecting forwardly of said roller, rodsV connected with the opposite extremities of said fingers forwardly and rearwardly of said roller, and means associated with said rods for securing said lingers in operative position with relation to said roller.
5. In a paste applying machine, a container, a paste applying roller supported in said container having a plurality of circumferential grooves, a plurality of fingers arranged in said grooves and projecting forwardly of said roller,.a deiector plate conynecting said fingers forwardly of said roller, rods connecting said fingers forwardly and rearwardly of said roller, and spring-re taining members, having curved ends Vengaged with said rods for securing said fingers in operative position with relation to said roller. v
In testimony whereof tureV in presence of two witnesses.V
