ANDREW A. UNDERWOOD, ATTLEBORO, MASSACHUSETTS, ASSIGNOR T MOSSIBERG CORPORATIOIY, A CORPORATION CONSTRUCTION FOR SPOOLS OR REE'LS.
Application filed February 17, 19%. Serial No. 88,725.
This invention relates to construction for,
spools or reels and more particularly to such devices adapted to carry a winding of metal wire in the process of annealingthe wire.
One of the objects of the invention is to provide a construction of the above nature which is practical and eflicient and capable 7 of meeting the requirements of use in a a construction of the above nature whichis capable of withstanding the annealing heat a without having its efliciency, impaired.
barrel member 10 which may be formed in Other objects will be in part obvious or in part pointed out hereinafter.
The invention accordingly consists in the features of construction, combinations of elements, and arrangements of parts as will be exemplified in the structureto'he hereinafter described and the scope of. the application of which will be indicated in the following claims.
- In the accompanying drawing in which is shown. one of the various possible embodiments of this invention;
Figure 1 is a side view showing the spool or reel partly in section;
Figure 2 is an end view; 1
Figure 3 is a section taken substantially along the line 33 of Fig. 1, and
Figure 4 is a sectional view of an end portion of a spool showing a modification.
Similar reference characters refer'to similar parts throughout the several views of the drawing.
Referring now to the drawing-in detail, there is shown in Figure 1 a hollow metal anydesired manner; for example, by rolling a sheet of metal into the desired hollow circular form and welding the longitudinal seam. Against the two ends of this barrel 10 are mounted and secured a pair of metal heads 11 and 12. These heads are substantially circular in shape, as shown in Figure 2, and are preferably provided with perfehighly satisfactory manner. Another 0brations 12 adapted to lessen their weight without materially aftectin their strength. At their peripheries the hea s are preferably bent outwardly slightly so as to facilitate the winding of the wire upon the reel and also for the urpose of lending rigidity to the heads. he two heads-'11 and 12 are substantially identical in construction andv are similarly secured to the ends of the barrel 10.
Passing axially through the center of the barrel. 10 is a tubular bearing member 13 which projects at either end thereof through the respective heads 11 and12. This tubular member 13 provides-a suitable bearing through whicha shaft or rod ma be passed to rotatably support'the reel. onsidering the manner in which the ends of this tubular member 13 are secured to the heads 11 and 12, it will be seenfrom-Fi re 1 thatthe member 13 is provided wit a slightly reduced end 13? which fits snugly 1nto and passes-through a central opening in the head 12, the outer end 13 of the member 13 projeetingoutwardly from the outer face of the ,head.- Resting against the outer face of the head about this projecting end 13 of the member 13 is a flat metal ring 14 whose inner diameter is a little greater than the outside diameter of the part 13". The annular space between the part 13 and the ring 14 1s filled by welding 15. In this manner the welding 15 welds together the head 12, the end of the member 13 and the ring dependable connection between; the tubular member 13 and the head 12 is'thus obtained. The ring 14, securely welded both to the 14. A strong rugged and thoroughlyhead and to the member 13 provides a strong reenforcement -for the center of the head and, moreover, the resulting outer surface of the head at its central portion is smoothly formed Without projecting parts to interfere with the convenient handling'of the spool. 5
. Passing through the barrel 10 close up against the inner surface thereof are a plurality of steel rods 16 shown in this instance as six in number. These steel rods project at their endsthrough openings in the heads 11 and 12 and are rigidly secured to the heads by welding 17 at the outer surfaces of the heads. These rods 16 thus support and center the barrel 10 between the two the two heads together.
These steel rods 16 are welded to the.
inner. surface of the barrel 10. Preferably each rod is welded to the barrel at least at two points, one adjacent each end of the barrel. This welding adjacent the left-hand end of the barrel, as viewed in Figure 1, 'is clearly shown at 17 in Figures 1 and 3. The rods 16 are thus rigidly joined to the barrel, 10 as well as to each of the heads 11 and 12. The welding 17 is important since it prevents the rods 16 from expanding and lengthening relative to the barrel 10 and thus pushing the heads away from the ends of the barrel.
The rods 16 thus dependably clamp the heads 11 and 12 against the ends of the barrel and at the same time rigidly support and center the barrel so that it is capable of dependably supporting a heavy load of wire. anger of the construction opening up between the ends of the barrel and the inner surfaces of the heads is avoided and the consequent danger of the coiled wire catching in such an opening is eliminated. The heads are dependably clamped together and reenforced at their central portions by the bearing member 13'and the weld 15, and a reel is provided which is strong and rugged throughout and thoroughly dependable.
' In addition to the features above described, the heads 11 and 12 are preferably welded directly to the respective ends of the barrel 10, each at a plurality of points. This is preferably done as is best shown in Figures 1 and 3. A plurality of lugs 18 are pressed inwardly from the barrel surface at the ends thereof. The recesses thus formed at the angle between the barrel surface and the inner surface of the head are filled with welding 19. In this manner the barrel is securely welded to the head at a plurality of spaced points and there is no possibility of these two parts separating. After the welding has been done, the weld is ground off smoothly flush with the surfaces of the head and of the barrel so as to leave a sharp clean angle as shown in Figure 1.
Referring now to Figure 4, thereis shown a modified manner of securing together the barrel member and the head memberf In this instance the end portion of the barrel 10 is pressed inwardly throughout itsicireum-ference as shown at 20. The an'nular recess thus formed is filled by welding 21. After welding the parts are ground off to leave -a sharp angle between the surface of the barrel and the inner surface of the head so that the wire can be evenly wound. It will be seen that the barrel is dependably joined to the head against any possibility of separation anel moreover, that the thickness of welding material 21 provides a substantial reenforcement. In this instance the rod 16 may or may not be employed as found desirable.
As man possible embodiments may be made'of t e above invention, and as many changes might be made in the embodiment above set forth, it is to be understood that all matter hereinbefore set forth or shown in the accompanying drawing is to be interpreted as illustrative and not i'na limiting sense.- i
