Nov. 2, 1937. J. w. RIGGENBACH PRINTING AND CUTTING MACHINE Filed Aug. 24, 1936 my/w t l ATTORNEY Patented Nov. 2, 1937 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE 2,098,165 PRINTING AND CUTTING MACHINE John W. Riggenbach, Fall River, Mass. Application August 24, 1936,"Scrlal No. 97,682

5 Claims.

The invention relates to a printing and cutting, machine and more especially to flock printing and cutting out machines.

The primary object of the invention is the provision of a machine of this character, wherein textile fabrics, paper or the like will be printed with a special design and during such printing the material is cut out within the design printed, thereby giving an embroidery efiect, such as eyelet embroidery or imitation thereof.

Another object of the invention is the provision of a machine of this character, wherein the printing and cutting of the fabric delivered through the machine is had in a single operation so that such material will be imitative of eyelet embroidery weaving as accomplished by weaving machines.

A further object of the invention is the provision of a machine of this character, wherein the punch or cutter will operate in a novel manner so that a printed design upon material will be cut the instant the design is applied to the material, there being no possibility of the running of the coloring material when printing the design upon the fabric, paper or the like carrying such design and the finished product is similar to eyelet embroidery weaving.

A still further object of the invention is the provision of a machine of this character, which is simple in its construction, thoroughly reliable and effective in its operation, and inexpensive to manufacture and install.

With these and other objects in view, the invention consists in the features of construction, combination and arrangement of parts as will be hereinafter more fully described, illustrated in the accompanying drawing, which discloses the preferred embodiment of the invention and pointed out in the claims hereunto appended.

In the accompanying drawing:

Figure 1 is a side elevation of a machine constructed in accordance with the invention.

Figure 2 is an enlarged fragmentary vertical sectional view through the printing roller for printing designs upon fabric and showing the cutters built therein.

Figure 3 is an enlarged vertical sectional view through one of the cutters.

Figure 4 is a fragmentary plan view of a piece of fabric showing the printed design thereon prior to the cutting out of such fabric.

Figure 5 is a view similar to Figure 4 showing the fabric cut out and a finished product.

Similar reference characters indicate corresponding parts throughout the several views in the drawing.

Referring to the drawing in detail, the machine comprises a vertical frame l0 having located at its top a relief engraved roller II which is rotatable about an axle l2 stationarily fitted at each end in a bearing l3 fitting the frame ID. This roller II at each end is provided with spokes l4 merging into a hub centrally of said roller, the engraved reliefs being indicated at i5 peripherally of said roller and in this instance are indicative of dots as produced in colors at l6 upon fabric, paper or the like II. It is, of course, understood that the design of each relief l5 may be changed or altered and this being optional.

Suitably fitted within the frame Ill at one side of the roller II is a pan l8 for holding a quantity of adhesive color, liquid or substance and working within such pan is a pick-up and applying roll I9 with which contacts the reliefs l5 as peripherally arranged on the roller II. The roll I!) has cooperating therewith a doctor blade or knife 20 to assure a uniform coating of adhesive color substance on the reliefs I5 upon the roller II for printing of the designs l6 upon the fabric, paper or the like ll in a manner presently described.

Arranged within the roller II are cutters, there being one located at each relief 15, and comprise a tubular barrel or cylinder 2! fitted at its inner end with a removable cap 22 and at its outer end with a guide tip 23, respectively. This barrel or cylinder 2i is slidably fitted in a guide 26 fixed interiorly of the roller l I and disposed radially so that when the roller l l is rotated in one direction the caps 22 on the inner ends of the barrels or cylinders 2| will be acted upon by a cam 25 fixed to the stationary axle I2 thus in sequence radially displacing the cutters for a purpose presently described.

Slidable through each tip 23 is a plunger 26 to the outer end of which is fixed a cutting die or punch 21 which operates through the relief l5 companion thereto for the simultaneous cutting out of the fabric, paper or the like II when impressing a design thereon by printing from the reliefs [5 on the roller ll.

Each plunger 26 is formed with an annular shoulder 28 against which operates a coiled tensioning spring 29 confined within the tip 23 and about said plunger. This tip 23 has releasably fitted in its inner end a retaining plug 30 for holding the spring 23 within the tip and against which said spring rests so that the plunger 26 is urged outwardly of the tip 23 by the spring 29. The plunger 26 is slidable through the retaining plug 30 and within the barrel or cylinder 2| is a trip hammer 3| backed by a tensioning spring 32 located between it and the outer closed end of the cap 22. The hammer 3| has fitted therein a spring tensioned tripping latch 33 which Is engageable with the inner reduced end 34 of the plunger 26 so as to lock the hammer normally engaged with this plunger. The barrel or cylinder 2! is formed with an internal abutment or shoulder 35 to be engaged by the latch 33 when the barrel or cylinder 2| has had relative movement with respect to the plunger 26 for unlatching the latter from the said hammer whereby when the'hammer 3| is under tension by the spring 32 it will effect a striking blow upon the plunger 26 when unlatched from the latter and in this fashion driving or forcing the die or punch 21 through the fabric, paper or the like I! for the cutting at 36 thereof and this cutting out at 36 occurs within the design I6 impressed on the said fabric, paper or the like I! so that the latter will be imitative of eyelet embroidery as effected in eyelet embroidery weaving. The cutting out by the die or punch 21 is simultaneous with the printing of the design upon the fabric, paper or the like II, this being apparent from Figure 2 of the drawing.

The fabric, paper or the like in strip or sheet form is in a roll 31 suitably journaled at 36 in the frame III and is fed over a bed roller 39 beneath the roller II and journaled at 40 in said frame.

Carried over the roller 39 beneath the fabric, paper or the like I! is a backing sheet or strip II which is unwound from a feed roll 42 thereof and wound upon a take-up roll 43 during the printing and cutting out operation of the machine. The purpose of this sheet or strip 4| is to carry off the adhesive color substancewhich penetrates the fabric, paper or the like i! printed with the designs l6 to avoid such color substance passing onto the roll 39 with the result that there would be a smear back on the under side of the fabric, paper or the like I! should such color substance become deposited on the said roll 39.

Each die or punch 21 is provided with a hole or slot 44 permitting an escape for the severed pieces of the fabric, paper or the like during the cutting or punching operation.

The cam 25 is set within the machine so that the cutters will operate simultaneously with the reliefs l5 when printing the fabric, paper or the like l1 for the cutting out of the designs created or printed upon such fabric, paper or the like.

The drying of the coloring substance applied to the fabric, paper or the like can be had in any desirable manner subsequent to the printing and cutting operation within the machine and thus the permanency of the flock print is assured, particularly a firm binder around the edging of the cuts will be maintained.

The ratio of driving of both the rollers II and 39 can be had in any approved manner for the successful operation of the machine and the finished printed and cut out product is imitative of designed embroidery effect and simulates eyelet embroidery weaving.

The reliefs l5 together with the cutters registering with each other are distributed about the roller ll so that the printing and cutting out of the fabric, paper or the like I! will give the desired design configuration thereon as may be required. Surrounding each of the plungers 26 and being in contact with the rim of the roller II and the guide tip 23, respectively, is a coiled compression spring 45 which functions so that each barrel or cylinder 2| will have contact at all times with the cam 25 and under hammer,

blow of the punch the spring 45 will yield for the die 21 to cut or punch the hole in the material fed through the machine.
