Application nled July 30, 1925.' SeralfNo. 47,116.1: y

.n -fThis `inventionrelates to mounting Orf bed-for supporting machinery, and has parf;

.vticularly in view a novel construction adapted to' prevent'the transmission of sound or 'A5v Vibrations from the machinery .to the build-'l y 1 A corresponding parts throughoutthe several yngnires ofthe drawings.: v V f 1 ing.

In the construction of modern factories litis very desirable, from an engineering as ,Well as practical standpoint to prevent the 1Q transmission of vibrations incidentto the v 1 operation of the machinery to the floor strucl. VLture, 7land Aalso provide'for adequately. ab-` sorbing the sound thereby 'to notonlypro-y tect the building structure but make the fac-l 15 toryor shop itself less noisy.

Accordingly, the present -A be readily mounted not onlyto be held sta-` y2 0. ltionary, and in proper alinement With'other'.

tion which lendsv itselfA to many differenttypes of installations due to novelprinciplcs of construction which maybe followed in".

In .its 'general aspect: the invention coin-y priscsfa primary anchoring element or foundation Which-is'preferably a -fiXed oryrigid.` part offtheifloor structure of the'building,

butfmayassume several forms'asvvill pres= ently appear.v Forexample', vinthe construc-v tionshovvnin Figures 1, to'in'clusive, the

y lanchoring abutment or vfouiidation is desigfA nated generally as 1A and is preferably.'

formedbya block of concrete madeinteg'ral with the floor of the building. The .said foundation Amay fbe formed if-desired, by using;l the rectangular vWooden bed-frame B i ybefore the same is assembled-tofhave vthe in'achinery mounted thereon, y:thereby using the elements or members 'of the bed'-.vframe mounting theunachinery.-V v n y Referringgto Fig. il, it' Will be observed that 'the said bed-frame B preferably; conf sists lof the end timbersyorsillsul and Q andy ,Y p y vthe side timbers B and Leach yof which are preferably mortised and shouldered to a suf* ,i

icientdegree to-permit the extremities there# of to overlap andfprojectfbeyond .v one Van'- other for aI distance equivalent tothe des.. siredxamountof space to be'left between the bed-framein its final set-up"andthesides of the foundationelement-QA.

Therefore, it Wilbe-understood that in I erecting the present mounting the' sills1,j2,

Sand Ll'inaybe laid l'.o'n the floorf-Fgor on a filler frame :F f corresponding tothe thick;

ness of the insulation slabs to be used, thereby to form the bed-frame in the manner shown in'Figs. 1 and 2. This arrangement thus provides a mold for receivingthe concrete Which forms the anchoring foundation A. After the concrete hasbeen poured and set sufficiently the timbers may be removed and readjusted or reset to the position shown in Fig. 3 from Which it will be observed that the saine are spaced from the sides of the anchoring foundation A so that the corner extremities yof each of the sill4 members come into registering relation.

The` above arrangement permits of the use of suitable means for fastening or' securing the end corners of the sills 1,2, 3y and l together, said means being designated broadly as C and in the example shown inl Figs. 3

.and 4 preferably comprising an expansion bolt 7 anchored iny the still 3V and passing through an opening 8in the sill 1 thereby to receive a holding nut and Washer 9 to. draw the sill members 1 and 3 tightly against the anti-vibration blocks or slabs 10 which are arranged between the vertical mit of the effective clamping of the sill members to the permanent foundationv so as to prevent movement of the machinery which isbolted directly to an exposed face or faces ofthe Wood timbers Which constitute the sills 1, 2,- 3 and 4. Y

'As Will be observed from Fig. 3 it is unnecessary; to use the elements 10 between theside sills 3 and Li and the foundation A, a

' space being left thereby to prevent the transmission ofv vibrations to the concrete foundati'on.

Fig. 5 ther modified form of sill clamping and holdingvmeans C. ln this arrangement the side sills 3a and 4- and the end sill 1a together'with the end sill 2', (not shown), maybe employed in' the. same manner to construct theA concrete foundation A. In this arrangement,however, the end sill 1u is providedvvitli an opening 12 thereby to receive an anchoring bolt 13 which 4is embedded in the concrete' foundation A ,and projects through-the opening 12, to receive the nut 14:l which presses the Washer 15 against an anti-vibration' Washer 16 of Korfund or the like. Anti-vibration absorbing slabs or inserts 17 are used between the relatively of the inventioniillustrates a fur-l adjustable sill and the foundation thereby to permit the entire rectangular 'frame to be firmly clamped to the foundation A. In order to securely connect the sills 1a, 3' and "4 after they have been properly set, the

saine may be fastened together at the corners by the spikes a; as shown.

Fig. G illustrates another modification wherein the `concrete foundation A2 is formed with an openingV at the time it is built, the said opening being made by using a pipe 18 or other mold which is larger than the tie bolt 19 Which extends through.- out the opening and receives the clamping nuts 2O at opposite ends thereof thereby to clamp thc end sills 1b and2"v against the insulating slabs 21 and 22. In this arrangement the bolt 19 does not Contact directly with the foundation A2 Abecause. of its smaller diameter, and if desired anl insulating bushing 181 can be employed about the bolt With-r out departing from the spirit of the invention.

Referring to Figi. 7v itiwill be observed that a modified form of foundation AS'is' provided. In this formthe foundation may comprise separate blocks or upstanding, vertical piers 23 and 24 as distinguished from the solid rectangular foundation A slioivn in,I Fig. 1, etc'. in this form ofthe invention it,r is stil-l proposed to employ they relatively adjustable end sill members 1c and@1 (notV shown) as Well as the relatively stationary sills Scand 4C. Any suitable and, convenient type of clamping meansy for the., adjustable members 1 and; 2C.may be employed for clamping or pressing the same against the insulating slabs 25 which in turn bear.

against the piers 23 and 211. Any example of the clamping means adapted forl use in connection with this form 'of construction is shown to be that employed in Fig. 3.

From the foregoing it will be apparent that the present construction provides` a, mounting for machinery which essentially includes in its organization av permanent foundation or anchoring elementA which is preferably a part of the building, and may be a rect-angular slab or spaced upstanding -posts or piers sunk in the floor, and either of which provide a firm anchorage for a rec-j tangular frame which may under some circumstances be used as a form, and later as a base to which the machinery is attached. In

all cases, however, the base preferably includes relatively fixed ork stationary sill members, for example 3 and 4, and relatively adl justable sill members, for example 1 and 2,

feature-ot the invention is to insulate [all parts of the rectangular frame which contact with a permanentpart oi' the building,

either bythe usev of insulating inserts or less these'sill members may also be made ad- 'justable and insulating material used between them and the vanchoring element, 'Withf out departing from the spirit or scope of the invention.' That is true because las re-` viously indicated, a distinctive feature of the l vinvention resides in the provision of utilizying a permanent building part as an anchory age for a machine or tool carrying timber Lelementwhieh is insulated from the anchorage by means of a sound absorbing unit of corkl l .or its equivalent.

Without further descriptionit isthought that the features and advantages ofthe iny vention will be readily apparent to those skilled in the art. andit willVoiJ-course be understood that changesin the form, proportion and minor details of .construction .may be resorted to, without departing from the spirit of theinvention and scopeof the appendedl claims.

l claim: i f l.' A mounting for machinery comprising a building part, a frame surrounding said building part and spaced therefrom, sound and vibration insulating elements adapted to be interposed between said frame Aand said between the frame and said building part.

2. A mounting for machinery` comprising a ,iframe consisting of a plurality of timbers,

a permanent building part` adapted ytobe surroundedby said timbers,` means for in-` sulating the timbers trom'the floor of the building and also from the permanent build-l ing part, land means for drawing certain ofl Vbuilding` part and.also'lbetween'said frame n1 and the Ailoor of lthe building, and, means `for vclamping certain partsonly of said frame .against the insulating material positioned said timbers toward saidpermanent building j part.

A machinery mounting comprising-,in i

combinationwith the floor having a permanent foundation, a plurality of timbers adapted to'iorm` a frame, means for adjustably Lassembling the timbers .to provide the rame'for carrying the machinery, said timbers beingarranged in spacedrelation to y 60 the foundation, `and insulating elements yinterposed at spacedintervals between the floorr of the, building and the timbers and also be; Atween the' vertical sides of and the timbers.
