BAGNAR FREDSELL, OF NEWAFRK, JERSEY.

LABEL-WIPING STATION.

Applicationflled April 5, 1924. Serial No. 704,432.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, CHARLES RAGNAR FREDSELL, a citizen of the United States, residing inthe city of Newark, county of Essex, and State of New Jersey, have invented new and useful Improvements in Label- Wip' g Stations, of which the following is a specification.

My inventionrelates to label wiping stations used with labeling machines, more particularly to the type of labeling machines in which the label applying means and the wiping means are accomplished with a step by step movement and with the articles in spaced relation, and has for its object to provide a mechanism that will wipe a label extending'on three sides of an article to be labeled.

A further object is to provide a simple and compact wiping means that may be applied to double labelers and when combined with the mechanism embodied in an application for Letters Patent filed by me simultaneously with this case will furnish a mechanism for placing labels on all four sides of an article to be labeled.

The foregoing and other features of my invention will now be described in connection with the accompanying drawings forming part of this specification in which I have represented my mechanism in its preferred form, after which I shall point out more particularly in the claims those features which I believe to be new and of my own invention.

Inthe drawings Figure 1 is an elevation of my wiping station.

Figure 2 is a plan view with the slide in positlon furthest away from the article to be labeled. 1

Figure 3 is a plan view with the slide in position after the label has been wiped and secured to the article to be labeled.

In the construction shown the entire wiping station is mounted on a slide 1 adapted to be reciprocated in a suitable stand 2 by any well knbw'n means attached to stud 3. The slide stand 2 is adapted to be secured to the table 4 of alabeling machine in proper relation with the" ,delivery mechanism 5 carrying the articles to be labeled 6 inspaced relation. Inasmuch as the delivery mechanism is not a art of.this invention it requires no, furt or description here. It is sufficient to state that the articles to be labeled, having passed the label magazine at which station a labelis delivered and attached to the article to be labeled, it is brought up to the wiping'station in a step by step motion. Syncronously with this movement the wiping station is reciprocated to and from the article to be labeled.

On the slide 1 I provide two similar rocker arms 10 each pivotally mounted at 11 and held in frictional contact with the slide by the spring 12 and friction plate 13. Mounted on the rocker arms 10 I provide arms' '14 pivoted at 15 and held in contact with the arm 10 by the spring 16 providing a yielding connection with less tension than the spring 12 so that the arm 14 may outwardly yield without turning the arm 10 against the action of the spring 12 pressing the arm 10 against the friction plate 13. a

The rocker arms 10 are each provided with an arm 30 which extends between two adjustable limit stops 31 and 32. These stops may be adjustable by any well known means as shown'at 33. The object of these stops is to limit and control the motion of the wiping rolls.

The wiping rolls 40 are mounted in roll holders 41 which are provided with' 'a pin 42 and slot 43 and are so arranged to readily engage a slot 52 and pin 53 of the roll arm 14 as will be readily understood by referring to Figure 1.

Mounted in suitable bearings 60 is a slidable grip pad rod 61 provided in its end nearest the path of the articles to be labeled with a grip pad 62 and held in its forward position by the spring 63. The object of this grip pad is to bring pressure contact between the label and the article to be labeled through a yielding contact during the advance of the wiping station and during the progress of the rolls to prevent the label from slipping out of-its adjusted position.

The operation is asfollows: The wiping slide is reciprocated to and from the article to be labeled. In Figure 2 the relative positions of the moving parts are shown. .As the slide advances to a point'where the grip pad 62 contactswith the label, the label is pressed against the article to be labeled and held in such position through a yielding pressure. The wiping rolls begin to follow *the contour of the article to be. labeled through the yielding pressure of springs 16 and continue over the label until the arm 30 contacts the limit stop 32 which rocks the The slide is now ready for its return stroke following claims to cover such modifications as naturally fall within the lines of invention. I
