The roll 4 is suitably secured upon shaft 2. The roll 5 is suitably secured upon shaft 6 journaled in bearings in the u rights 3.
The boxes 7 having the bearings or shaft 6A 60 may be adjustable in uprights 3, and normally s ring pressed toward shaft 2 by springs g, which may be adjusted to vary their tension in any Well known manner. A
piniggn 8 secured on shaft 2, in mesh with a 65 gear 9 secured on shaft 6, enables rotation of roll or drum 5 at the same peripheral speed as that of roll .4. Shaft 2 may be rotated by a belt 1() (from a suitable source of power) passing over a pulley 11 secured on 70 shaft 2. Roll ordrunL 5 isrshown hollow and adapted to be heated, for which purposeone or more gas burners 12 may enter the open end of said roll or drum, the pipe 13 pre erably being used. `At 14 is a shield supported upon shaft 6 and resting'- upon burner pipes 12, closing the open end of roll 5 at its upper portion (Fig. 10) to prevent the flame or heat from engaging strips pass`80 upon sai spindle. At 18 is an arm having 85 av bore or bearing 18a (Fig. 4) at or adjacent to its free end for rotatively supporting spindle 15. Arm 18 isadapted to rock and is mounted ,u on a rod or shaft 19 carried by the uprig mounted on rod or shaft 19 which may secured in standards 3 or said arm may be secured to said rod or shaft, the latter being journaled in standards 3. Arm
l181nay Vbe counterbalancedto any desired 95 extent by means of a weight or extension 18b connected with said arm.
I Vprovide means whereby spindle 15 may be frictionally rotated from a wheel or pulley 20. I Ahave shown spindle 15 at one part ro- 100 tative within a sleeve 21 that is rotatively mounted in bearing 18lL of arm 18, the wheel or pul ey 20' being secured to said sleeve at one si e of said arm, as by means of a screw 242 (Fig. 4). At 23 is a flange shown project- 105 i'ng from a hub 24, slidablv mount d upon spindle 15, and adapted 'to frictional y coact with the adjacent face ofwheel 2Q for rotation by the latter. A friction washer or the like 25 of suitable material, such as leather or 110 felt, may be interposed between wheel 20 and flange 23. Spindle 15 is shownprovided supplying gas to said burners, a blue fiame ts 3. The arm 18 may beso with a longitudinal groove 26 receiving a upon cores 17, as in the nature of reels. The
key, such as a screw 27, shown projecting core 17 may have an internal longitudinal from hub 24, whereby 'flange 23 will cause groove at 1 adapted to receive the spring rotation of spindle 15, in different positions 35, when the core is pushed upon spindle 15,
of adjustment of said flange along the spinfor positively rotating, the core with the 70 dle. A spring 28 shown coiled around spinspindle. The core mayhave a longitudinal die and operatin at one end against groove or recess in its periphery, indicated liange 23 and at the ot er end against an adat 17, into which the end of the strip to be justable stop 29 on spindle 15 is'adapted to wound may be pushed for connecting the cause flange 23 to coact with wheel or pulley strip with the core sothat when the core ro Y75 with frictional engagement.' The stop 29 tates the strip will be wound thereon.
may be adjustable along spindle 15 by means For rotatin wheel or pulley 20 I have of threads 30 on said spindle engaging the shown a pu ley 38 rotative loosely on threaded bore of said stop, a sc rew 31 carshaft 19 and connected with a pulley 39,
15 ried by said .stop serving to retain the latter a belt 40 passing over pulleys 20l and 38, and 30 in adjusted positions on the spindle. A a belt 41'passing from pulley 39 to a lpulley thrust bearing is shown between sleeve 21 42, which may be fast to wheel or pul ey 10, and spindle 15, for' which pur'pose I have whereby the desired speed and'direction of have shown antifrict'ionA balls 32 interposed rotationof spindle 15 may be derived from 2o between a raceway 33 shown ,formed in the pulley 11 or face of the flange portion 15a of spindle 15 The strips 43 to be wound on spools 16 and the race-way formed at the outer end of or cores -17 are to be guided to said spools sleeve 21, as at its flange portion 21ll thato or cores, and preferably between the ironposes the adjacent side fa'ce of arrn 18. T e ingA rolls 4 and 5. When suoli strips are spring 28, in addition to maintaining a de to be folded, as for the production of bind- 9o sired frictiona'l engagement between wheel ings, either having one or more folded or pulley 20 and flange 23, serves to keep the portions, such as illustrated in Figs. 11 and Aracevvay 33 against v the anti-friction alls, 12, the strips may be fed through a suitable whereb spindle 15 is rotatively maintained ide or folder of any Wellknovvn character.
in the esired position for rotation byvvheel indicated at 44, adapted to fold the strips 95 20. Since spindle 15 is rotative within as they pass through the folder. The desleeve 21 and since said sleeve is rotalivery end of said folder is shown located tive within its bearing independent of the adjacent tothe aes-between the ironing spindle, the rotation of the latter will not be rolls 4 and 5 ig. 3). If the strip is not rive shaft 2. 35
35 affected by any pullof the belt on Vwheel or to be folded, the guide 44 may have suitable 100 pulley 2,0, so that if 4the belt be 4'adjusted shape, in a wellknown manner, for feeding `tightly on saidfwheely it will not affect the the strip between the ironing rolls in a flat free and independent rotation of spindle 15 condition. In order to move the guide or on its bearing in sleeve 21. To prevent spinfolder 44 back and forth along the ironing die 15 bein pulled outwardl when the rolls, and to cause the to and fro movements 105 spool or ree is removed there om, Il have of such guide or folder by and in accordance shown a fiange or collar a securedon the with the rotation of spindle l5, I provide l spindle within wheel 20, flange 23 and means described as follows: Guide or folder washer 25, and preferably normally spaced 44 is shown carried by a block 45 mounted 45 therefrom, and adapted to bear against wheel .to slide upon spaced guide rods 46, secured 11o or pulley 20 if the spindle is pulled to the between standards 3. The base plate 44a left in Fig.`4. o`f uide 44 is shown adjustable upon block Spool 16 is adapted to be ap lied to and 45 y means. of the slot 44" in said plate removed from the end of spin le 15, opporeceiving the' screw 47 working in a threaded site spring 28, and to be rotated by and with aperture in block 45. A projection 48 from 115 said spindle. I have shown a bow-like block145 receiveys the slotted or forked end spring 35` carried by spindle 1,5 and adapted 49 of a lever Aorarm 50, that is shown pivotto operate in a longitudinal groove-36 in ally supported upon a` screvv"A or stud'51, said spindle, one end 'of saidspring being shown carried by a block 52, secured upon secured to the'spindle-as at37, (by suitable a rod 53 secured to hangers 54 carried by 120 means such as solder),'the opposlte end of bed 1. Means are provided for -moving the spring being free toniove -in'said' groove. guide or folder 44 back and forth along When the bore of vthe'ore of spool 16 is adjacent to the ironing`rolls` 4oand 5, for pushed uponthe spindle the spring 35 will which purpose I have shown a cam 55 rev press on the spool and retain it on the spinceiving a stud or projection 56, carried b 125 le for positive rotation by the latter, and arm 50,said cam being-secured upon sha t the 4spool maybe readily pulled oil' the spin '57, shown jonrnal'ed upon the hangers 54, dle. Instead of winding the'strips back and depending from base 1, whereby rotation forth along spools, ashereinafter explained, of said cam will cause arm 50 to reciprocate'=- the strips may be wound in convolntions on its pivotal point .541. In order `to cause 130 the guide or folder 44 to be reciprocated in accordance with the rotation of spindle 15, I have shown gearing interposed between said spindle and shaft 57 for rotating cam 55 in the required time. While any suitable gearing may be provided for such pur pose I have shown mechanism as follows: A sprocket Wheel 58 is secured upon spindle 15 and receives -a chain 59 passing overa s rocket wheel 60 that is mounted upon sliaft 19 and is secured to a sprocket wheel 61. A chain 62 passes overwheel 61 and over a sprocket wheel 63 shown carried by a stud or shaft 64 projecting from a standard 3. A sprocket wheel 65 secured to sprocket 63 receives a chain 66 vthat asses over a sprocket wheel 67 secured to s, aft 57. VlhenV dle 15 and shaft 57, the cam 55 will beV rotated at such speed as to cause the guide or folder 44 to move back and forth along rolls 4 and 5 corresponding to each layer of strip 43 wound on spool 16, whereby such strip will be wound on the spool evenly from end to end thereof, notwithstanding the increasing diameter of the strip as it 1s wound on the spool. Since the widths of strips 43 may vary, and since the uide or folder 44 derives its reciprocations irectly from indle 15, the pivot 5.1 may be adjusted a ong arm 50 to vary he movement of the latter in accordance'with the width `of the strip to be wound. For such urpose I have shown arm 50 provided with spaced apertures 50EL adapted to receive the screw or pivot 51, the block 52 being shown rovided with correspondingly spaced threa ed apertures 52a receiving screw 51. By setting screw 51 farther from projection 48, the arm 50 will be given slower rocking movement for wider strips to be wound on spools 16, and by adjusting screw 51 nearer to projection 48 the arm 50 will be given relatively quicker rocking movements for narrower strips to be wound on the spools, and
so on for intermediate widths of strips, the screw 51 being adjusted in the apertures 50El 52, accordingly.
t 68, 69 is shown a suitable indicator for indicating the lengths of the strips wound on the spools or cores.'
In accordance with my improvements, the strip 43 to be ironed and wound is passed through the guide or folder 44, and between the exterior of roll 5 and `fastened to the spool 16 or core 17, being preferably fastened near one end of spool 16 in a `wellknown manner, as by pasting the end of the strip to thespool. When the machine is started the rolls 4,y 5, heat'and iron the strip passing between them, and at the same time ybetween the ironing rolls, causing the strip to be correspondingly wound back and forth along the spool, the strip bearing upon roll 5 as the strip is wound on the spool by reason of the weight of arm 18, whereby the strip is caused to be snugly wound on the spool. Since the strip is fed/ forwardly between the ironing rolls with speed corresponding to the peripheral speed of said rolls, the' increasing diameter of the strip as it is beingwound is accommodated by reason of slippage between the Vspindle rotating wheel or ulley 20 andthe spindle, (due to the frictlonal coaction between the pulley and flange 23) to overcome excess strain that would be put upon the convolutions of the strip were the spindle driven directly b Wheel or pulley 20 without the interpose frictional devices, and since the guide or folder 44 is reciprocated by the rotation of spindle 15, said guide or folder will be moved back and forth in accordance with the rotation of spindle 15 derived4 through the frictional devices, whereby th strip will be guided back and forth alon the spool in accordance with the speed o rotation of the latter, -hence in accordance with the winding of the strip upon the` spool, notwithstanding the increasing diameter of the strip upon the spool. In other words, as the speed of rotation of the spool is such as to wind the strip thereon only as fast as the strip is fedby the rolls 4, 5, and as the movement of guide or folder 44 is overned with the rotation of the spool, it
as the diameter of the strip thereon increases, so also the reciprocations of guide or folder 44 will be slower as such diameter .strip in the folder 44. the ironing rolls 4, k5 and is carried along V Then flat or unfolded strips are to be wound, as in the form of reels, a suitable guide`44, of any welliknown form, may be substituted for the strip folder, such flat strip being guided between the ironing rolls 4, 5, and attached to the core 17 that is mounted upon .the spindle 15 in place of the` ollows that, as the spool will rotate slower e spool, and arm 50 may be removed from 130 the machine, or from connection with projection 48, so that the ide 44 need not be reciprocated. 'When t e fabric is Wound upon cores, the reels so produced may be slipped off the cores. in' a well-known manner.
M improvements enable the winding or spoo ing-of all kinds of strips, from the more delicate fabrics, such as laces, tothe coarser fabrics, suchas heavy binding material, without unduly straining the fabric, and at the same time winding the fabric smoothly and evenly on the spools or cores.
