Application filed November 28, 1921. seriaino. 512,223.
To aZlw/wmezft may concern: 1 Be it known that I, FRANIC MOSSBERG, a
citizen of' the United States, residing-at Attleboro, in the county of Bristoland State of Massachusetts, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Beam Heads,
of which the following is a specification- This invention'relates to an improvement --in the construction of beameheadsby which the head is'adaptedto be, adjustahly connected'toia beamon which yarn orlother material maybe wound, and the object of thisinvention is to provide a head for beams of this character which is preferably constructed of sheet metal andiwhich ,istpro vided with a head member adapted to support the head plate and also. to be readily contracted to bind the head in adjusted position, upon the beam.
attach the ends of the hub sections to the face of the head-plate bywelding instead of riveting thereby eliminating the neces-f sityof having rivet-heads on the 1111181, face of the head-plate, which are found in prac-. tice to work loose and engage and injureithe yarn and are consideredobjectionable.
lVith these and other objects in view, the invention consists in certa in novelfeatures of construction, as will be more fully de scribed, and particularly pointed out in the appended claims.
In the accompanying drawings:
Figure 1 1s a slde elevation illustrating, a pair of my improved beam-headsas applied to the ends of a beam.
Figure 2 is a face view of my improved beam-head.
Figure 3 is a section on line 33 of Figure 2, showing my improved means for adjustably securing the middle portions of the hub sections to the plate. V
Figure 4 is a perspective view showing one of the lugs employed in securingthe plate by a welding operation.
Figure 5 is a perspective view of one of the hub sections detached.
With reference to the drawings, 10 desig; nates the usual body portion of a warp beam, which in this particular case 1s usually constructed of wood'but which, of course,
may be made of any suitable material.
v ln the making of beams of this character the head members 11 -tion of the beam A further object of the invention: is to" are preferably so constructed that: they may be adjusted-long tudinally along the lengt'h of the'body porworking length. 7 r It is alsoone of the objects of-the invention to construct both the. heachplate and the hub sections of sheet metal whereby the whole may be made verylight inrweight and the hub sufficiently; yieldable to be, readily contracted to clamp'the same uponvthe body portion and hold the head in adjusted posi- .in order. to regulate its tionthereon, and the following i's'a detailed plished The main head-plate of this head is prefdescription of oneconstruction' of beamerably formed of sheet metal and. its periphcry which is preferably as at 12,.to provide a stiffening flange-therefor, and the center of this plate is cut? out as at 13 to permit the passage of the end of the beam therethrough.
rolled outwardly The hub member 14 is preferably'con structedof four separate sections 15, each havlng a body portion 16 formed on-the arc head plate and at rightangles to each other. The radiating end members of each section are spaced apart as at '18 and the end of each section is pierced as at 19 to permit the reduced end portion 20 of the lug 21 to be riveted rigidly thereinto, the body portion I slotted as at 22, to slidably receive the reduced ends of the lugs23.
In order to contract these hub members to bind. the head in adjusted position on the beam I have provided binding bolts 24: which pass through the adjacent arms 17 of 1 up the nuts on these bolts the different sections are caused tobe contracted and so lock the head securely to the beam.
In some instances the head-plate itself is formed in sections in which case I proofza circle with radiating end members. 17 all set edgeways against the outer face of the vide guide fingers 25' and 26 and spot weld,
thedifferent sections'to hold the plate secthe different hub sections whereby by setting tions in alignment or in the same plane with each other.
By my improved construction of beamhead I am enabled to doaway with the usual cumbersome cast iron hub which here- 'tofore has been employed for this purpose and have provided one which is much lighter in weight, less expensive to construct, is stronger and more durable and by its use the contractible members of the hub may be permanently secured to the outer face of the head-plate. by a welding operation 1 whereby the inner or working face of the head is left plain and smooth, then again by my particular construction the hub sections having radiating arms are set edg ways against the face ofthe head-plate, the plate is materially st'iiiened and one of compai'atively light. weight may be employed, and by the use of my: improved head-plate 'the 'hub may be readily contracted to grip and bind the body portion of the beam and hold the'head in any. adjusted posit on along its length.
The foregoing description is directed V solely towards the construction illustrated,
but I desire it to be understood that I reserve the privilege of resorting to all the mechanical changes to which the device is susceptible, the invention being defined and limited O y by the terms of the appended claims. a I I 3 V I claim:
1. A beam-head comprising a main disc plate, a hub member on said plate formed of a plurality "of sections, each having its end turnedi' 'outwardly at right angles to each other and set edgeways against said end turned outwardly at right angles to each other and set edgewa-ys against said plate, the ends of said arms being slotted, an attaching lug having its end riveted into said slot and having its body portion welded to the face of said plate, the body of each section being also slotted, an attaching lug having its end slidably engaging said body slot and its body'portion welded to said plate, and binding bolts through the, adja cent arms of the different sections for contracting the hub to bring the head in adjust ed position thereon. V I
3. A beam-headcomprisi-ng a main disc plate formed in sections, a contractible'f binding hub member formed in sections and having radially-disposed arms 'Yfltllpllhell outer ends in engagement with the outer face of said plate to stifi'en the same, means for permanently securing the ends of said armsto said plate, binding bolts through said arms whereby said sections may be contracted to bind the head in adjusted position on the beam, and overlapping guide fingers on the adjacent edges of said plate sections to hold them" in alignment.
' In testimony whereof I aflix my signature.
