facing outwardly. The radiating wings of each web project laterally therefrom on opposite sides thereof and the wings on one side of each web alternate. with the wings on the other side of the same. Furthermore each wing of each web on one side thereof has its base'connected integrally therewith adjacent to one of the summits of this web and each wing on the opposite side of this web has its base connected integrally with the webadjacent to the other summit of this web. Each of these wings is formed by cutting the metal'of the web at` opposite longitudinal edges 35 of the wing, but the base 36 of the wing remains permanently connected with the respective web and the. freeor outer end of each wing has its transverse edge torn from the stock of the metal form* ing this web, thereby producing a ragged edge 37 on the free end of the wing, which increases the radiating capacity of the same.
The machine shown in the drawings and containing the preferred form of our invention is constructed as follows:
The numeral 38 represents the main frame which may be of any suitable construction to support the several parts of the. mechanism. On the front end of this frame are mounted the supply means which support rolls 39 of double width sheet met-al of which the fins are made; in rear of the feeding' means is the longitudinal slitter or cutter mechanism whereby thel sheet metal is cut into two parallesstrips; inA rear of the slitter is arranged the forming mechanism whereby the strips are bent to provide the same with 'corrugations having the bearing faces, interlocking grooves an radiating wings; and in rear of the formingmeans is arranged the transverse cutting or severing mechanism whereby the finished strip is cut into sections of the requisite length.
The supply means preferably consist of an upper support or rack mounted on the upper part of the front end of the main frame and adapted to carry the roll of sheet metal which is being fed to the machine and a lower support or rack mounted on the main frame below the upper support and adapted to carry a roll of sheet metal which is held in reserve ready to be used when the roll in the upper support becomes exhausted. Each of these supports is constructed generally in the. form of a cradle and comprises two downwardly curved side pieces 40 which are spa/ced apart and connected by bars 41 with the adjacent part of the main frame. and a plurality af transverse rollers 42 an ranged between the side bars in a downwardly curved row and pivotally mounted at their ends thereon. By this means a roll of sheet metal' supported on these rollers will be able to turn freely and pay out the rib'- bon of metal from the periphery of the rolls as the same is pulled `olf by the forming mechanism vwhich crimps, corrugates and forms the metal into the desiredV shape.
A s the ribbon of sheet metal moves for- Wardly the same passes between the opposing overlapping parts of upper and' lower longitudinal cutter disks 43, 44 which sever thev ribbon into two parallel stri'pspreparatory to forming the same suitablefor use as a iin for radiators. These cutter dis-ks are mounted on upper and lower cutter heads 45, 46 which are in turn adjustably secured to a guide block 47 mounted on the main frame and provided with aI guide opening 48 through which thoe sheet metal ribbon passes on its way to the longitudinal cutter disks.
After the ribbon has been 'thus slitted intov cooperating part of the companion roller will therefore apply to the cooperating parts of the two die sections of both of ythese rollers.
' The corrugations in each of the metal strips are produced by die teeth 51, 52 which are arranged transversely on the periphery ofthe die rollers and intermesh in the manner of gear wheels and each of which has inclined sides 53 cooperating with similar sides on the die teeth of the other die roller and flat outer faces 54 at opposite ends of the tooth which are adapted to co-operate with fiat inner faces 55 at opposite ends of the' space between two teeth on the other" roller, thereby forming corrugations of substantially V-shape in the strip of metal, the summits at opposite ends of hich are Hat and form the bearing faces 0, as shown in Figure 21. That part of the valley between two adjacent die teeth of each die roller and intermediate of'its flat end faces 54, is provided with a die rib 56 which is adapted to operate with a longitudinal die groove 57 on the summit of an opposing die tooth on the other die roller between the Hat end faces 55 thereof, thereby forming the reversely-bent interlocking channels or grooves 31 in the summits of the corrugaadapted to project laterally from the re- 5 spective die tooth of one die roller into delecting recesses 59 in'theinclined sides of the corrgatin The opposite ongitudinal edges 60, 61 of each of these deiecting punches and recesses are sharp and operate upon engaging a web portion of the sheet metal strip to cut two parallel longitudinal slits in the same which form the opposite edges 35 of a radiatin wing, lug or ear 33. The deecting punc 58 is so constructed that the same engages with the metal forming a wing 33 at the outer end of the latter slightly in advance of its inner end with the result that the outer end is torn off from the adjacent web of the corrugated strip, and then ressed outwardly into curved form beyond t e web while the inner edge of the wing remains inte ally connected with the respective web, as s own in Figure 20. Upon tearing the outer edge of each wing from the respective web of the corrugated strip ragged edges are formed on the web and wing where the same have been separated, thereby causing the air to engage the same more effectively when flowing through the completed radiator of which it forms a part and thus increasing its cooling eiiiciency. Furthermore, by tearing away one end of each wing instead of cutting the same by a punch the cost of producing the dies and the maintenance of the same is reduced accordingly. Moreover by sta gering the points of connection between eac web and the Wings formed on1 the same tle strip is not weakened as would be the ease if the tearing points of the several wings of a web were all arranged in a line. In the drawings the dies are so constructed that four radiating wings are formed on each web of the corrugated strip, two projecting from each side vthereof and alternat-l ing with those on the other side, but obviously this number may be varied to suit the size of radiatorrequired.
When the machine is in operation the die rollers while forming 4the strips passin between the same .also act as feed whee s or rollers whereby the stripsare positivel fed from the su ply roll forwardly throng the machine. or this purpose the die rollers are mounted and operated so that the same move forwardly on theiropposing working sides in unison. The means for this purpose shown in the drawings comprise lower and upper transverse shafts 62, 63, carrying the lower and upper die rollers and journaled in bearings 64, 65, arranged on standards 66 rising from the main frame, a driving shaft 67 journaled horizontally and transversely in bearings on the main frame and receiving power from any suitable. source, intermeshino' gear wheels 68, 69, mounted on corresponding ends of the die roller shafts, and a driving gear pinion 70 arranged on the main shaft and meshing 'with the lower teeth on'the othe die roller.
'forcibly eject the strips from these driven gear wheel 69, as shown in Figs. 1, d
3 and 6.
For the purpose of taking up slack and wear vbetween the upper and lower gear.
' two sections 71, 72 which are'arrange slde by side on the upper die roller sha t and the inner section 71, is secured to the die roller shaft 62 and the other roller is loosely mounted on the hub 73 of the inner section and these two gear @wheel sections are adjusted'circumferentially relatively to each other by screws 74 secured to the rear or inner Awheel section 71, passing with their one of the sectional gear wheels, for example Shanks through circumferential slots 75 in f the outer section 72 and bearing with heads against the lattervthrough ythe medium of washers, as shown in Fig. 6. By this means the two gear wheel sections 71, 72 can be adjusted so that in effect each of its teeth is widened and adapted to lit closely in the spaces between the toeeth of the other Section, as shown in Fig. 9, thereby permitting of taking up wear and ravoiding gear noise when the parts become worn.
The sheet metal strips to be formed are directed to the opposing parts of the die rollers bypassing the same through a guide slot or opening 75 formed between two bars or plates 76, 77 mounted on the standards 66.
It has been found in practice .that the strips of metal tend to stick to the die rollers after the strips have been formed therebetween. To facilitate suchremoval a stri ping device is provided which preferab y com rises upper and lower stripping fingers 78, 9 arranged onthw rear side of the die :rollers and projecting into circumferential grooves 80 therein close to the intermeshing parts thereof so as to engage with 'the upper and lower sides of the formed strips on the discharge side of the die rollers and thus rollers if the str'ps tendto cling thereto. These stripping ingers are mounted on upper and llo lower guide bars or plates 8 1, 82 supported on the adjacent parts of the standards and forming between them a guide slot or opening 83 which receives the formed. strips.
Owing to differences in the character of the sheet metal and also the form of the de- 'lecting punches and recesses the wings are torn oil irregularly at their outer ends from the .webs of the corrugated strip, thereb causing the `wings to project laterally di ferent distances from the strip when the same issues from the rear side of the bight between the die rollers. e To permit of evening these wings so that they project laterally.
a uniform distance from opposite sides of the corrugated strip evening means are provided which preferably consists of a flattening or evening bar 84 arranged-over the rear f through this slot, these wings will TIE part of the lower ,guide plate 82 and formin with the latter a guide slot 85 of reduce width so that when the corrugated strips having the wide spread wing passes pressed together by reason of this slot being narrower than the wings and thereby cause all of the wings to be spread alike which permits of stacking and assembling the fins more readily with the water tubes and also ensures uniformity in the radiating action of the radiator core into which the same is incorporated.
The width of the reducing slot 85 may be varied to suit different requirments for which purpose an adjusting device is provided which preferably comprises two push screws 86 mounted on the stationary frame bar 87 and bearing against the top of the evening bar 84 and two draw screws 88 connecting the stationary frame bar 87 with the flattening or evenin bar 84, as shown in Figures 4 and 23, W ereby upon tightening onel set of these screws and loosening the other the flattening bar can be adjusted to suit the width of slot 85 as required. After the wings of the formed strip of metal have been pressed back so that they are of uniform width the strip is presented to a transverse cutter mechanism whereby the strip is cut in lengths or sections suitable for use in the radiator core for which it is intended. This cutter mechanism in the preferred form hown in the drawings is constructed as folows:
Referring to Figures 1-4 and 11-13 the numerals 89 and 90 represent a pair of front cutter plates normally arran ed above and below the path of the forme strip of sheet metal, and 91, 92 represent a pair of rear cutter plates normally arranged above and below the path of said strip 1n rear of the front pair of cutter plates. These two pairs of plates are in contact with their o posing inner sides and have their outer si es in engagement with the upright sides of vertical slots 93 which are formed between a pair of front side pieces 94 ,arran ed alon opposite edges of the path of t e meta strips and engaging with the front sides of the front cutter plates and a pair of rear side pieces 95 arranged along opposite edges of the path of the metal strips and engaging with the rear sides of the rear pair of cutter plates. The front cutter plates are secured at their lower ends to longitudinal flan es 96 on the rear part of the main frame y screws 97 secured to the front side pieces 94 and passing through horizontal slots '98 in the frame flanges 96, and the rear side pieces are held in place by means of screws 99 connecting the same with the front side pieces and spacing sleeves 100 mounted on the screws 99 and interposed between sald front and rear side pieces. The front slde cally movable toward and from the top of' the metal strips and adapted to hold the latter down against the lower cutter blade 90. The upper rear late 91 serves as an upper cutter blade and) is vertically movable toward and from the upper side of the metal strips and past the lower front lcutter blade 90 so as to operate in conjunction with the latter as a cutting shears, whereby the metal strips are severed at this point. rlhe lower.
front plate 92 operates as a clamping member which engages with the underside of the metal strips and' movesk vertically with the upper rear cutter blade 91. The lower and upper cutter plates are yieldingly held in an elevated position by spring means which referably consist of two pairs of telescopic caring members 102, 103 arranged in notches 104, 105 in opposite ends of the lower plates 90, 92 and the members of each pair being adapted to engage upper and lower shoulders formed on these plartes by said notches, 4and a pair of springs 106 each resting at its op osite ends on a pair of said bearing mem ers. The upper rear cutter member and upper front clamping member are ylieldingly connected by spring means whic preferably comprise two pairs of telcscopic bearing members 107 108 arranged in notches 109, 110 in opposite ends 0f the upper plates 89, 91, and the members of each pair being adapted to engage upper and lower shoulders formed on these plates by said notches, and a pair of springs 111 each resting at its opposite ends on a pair of said bearing members, as best shown in Figures 10. 12 and 13.
Upward movement of the rea'r cutter late upper rear cutter blade, a spring 117 connecting the rock arm 115 with the adjacent front side piece and operating to raise the rear cutter blade and thev parts connected 'therewith and a' stop pin 118 which arrests ings on the upper pa'rt of thel front sidev pieces of the transverse cutter mechanism, and a large intermediate gear wheel 122 pivotally mounted on the main frame and meshing on one side with a gear pinion 123 on the shaft of the lower die roller and on its o posite side with a gear pinion onthe cam s aft K 121, as shown in Figures 1, 2,13, 10-13.
` the lower rear clamping In the inoperative position of the transverse cutter mechanism the rock lever 115 is held against the stop pin 118 by the spring elevated, and the lower rear clamping member 92 is elevated and stands with itsv u per edgeflush with the upper end of the ront lower clamping member 90 next to the path of the metal strip, as shown in Figure 4, during which time the latter is being fed forwardly between the blades of the cutter mechanism. At a predetermined period and when the metal strip has been advanced the required distance in accordance with thev len kh desired, the cam en a the tap et an turns the rock lever an t ereby quie y pulls down the rear cutter blade and then releases it so that it can fly up a ain without interfering with the forward eed of the metal strip which' is continuous. During the downward movement of the rear up er blade the upper front clamping mem r moves downwardly with it until the latter engages the upper side of the metal strip, as shown in Figure 11. Thereafter the upper rear cutter blade continues its descent and during this time engages with the top of the metal plate and depresses the same together with the lower rear clamping member 92l which at this time supports the underside of the metal plate and holds the same against the underside of the rear cutter blade, thereby carrying that part of the metal strip which is grl'pped between'the rear plates 91,
92 downwar ly ast that\ part which is gripped between t e front plates 89, 90, and severing the metal strip, as shown in Fig-` ures 10 and 13. During the subsequent upward movement of the rear cutter blade 91 member 92 is also raised by the spring same and the front lower cutter blade 90. Thereafter the rear cutter blade completes its upward movement independentl of the lower rear clampin member 92 an during this time the front c amping member 89 rises with the rear cutter blade 91 and is lifted strips required.

As the formed strip of metal moves from the forming mechanism to the transverse cutting mechanism the same is supported on its underside by a guide table 129.
In order to prevent undue upward deiection ofthe metal stri s between the transverse cutter and the orming mechanism as the rollers of the latter ush the strips forward a retaining plate 12 is provided which extends lengthwise over the path of the -metal stripl between the flattening device and the transverse `cutter mechanism and is sup-Y orted on suitable stationary parts of these evices, as shown in Figures 2, 3 and 4.
After a section or length of metal stri has been'severed from the main part or iody -of the same the severed part is directed by a downwardly curvedqdeflector or guide plate 128 -to a suitable receptacle or place of deposit provided for that purpose.
