11 Claims.

This invention relates to the art of drilling, and particularly to apparatus for drilling metal blanks preparatory to a metal-working operation for producing blowpipe nozzles and the like.

In accordance with known methods of manufacturing one-piece blowpipe nozzles from metal blanks, the blanks are drilled from one end to form a series of longitudinal passages of constant diameter, including a central passage and a series of parallel passages disposed about the central passage. Mandrels in the form ofmusic wire are inserted within the passages, and the blanks are subjected to a metal-working operation in order to reduce the drilled passages to a diameter conforming with that of the music wire.

In these prior known methods a blank is drilled from one end, and although these drills are started accurately, they are, nevertheless, subjected to movement known as walking during the drilling operation, so that although the plurality of holes entering the blank are symmetrically located with respect to each other, their points of exit are invariably anything but symmetrical. If the passages surrounding the central oxygen passage are not accurately and symmetrically located, a preheat flame of inferior quality will result. In some instances, this will affect the rate of preheat as much as Likewise, these passages at the rear end of the nozzle must be accurately located, otherwise they will interfere with the formation of a gas-tight seat about the same, and about the central passage.

Furthermore, it is practically impossible accurately to drill a large number of angularly related passages in a metal blank so as to form relatively small and large hole circles at the respective ends of the blank, and to maintain the ratio between the passage diameters and the wall thickness dividing the passages of such a proportion that no folding of the metal between the same will occur during the metal-working operation.

The objects of this invention include, providing apparatus for preparing metal blanks preparatory to a metal-working operation so that they will contain a series of small diameter passages arranged in a relatively small hole circle at one end; and the provision of such an apparatus including a hand-operated indexing unit adapted to rigidly hold the blanks during the drilling operation, capable of being moved to the proper angle, and provided with means for rotating the blanks about their longitudinal central axis, so that a circular arrangement of a series of converging passages can be drilled in said blanks.

The above and other objects of the apparatus to be described will become apparent from the following specification and the drawings, in which:

Fig. 1 is a perspective view of one form of apparatus embodying the principles of the invention and showing opposed drilling heads with a hand-indexing fixture located between the same;

Fig. 2 is a front elevatio-nal view of the drilling fixture of Fig. 1;

Fig. 3 is a side elevational view of the unit shown in Fig. 2;

Figs. 4 and 5 are views partly in section and partly in elevation, showing certain details of the indexing fixture;

Fig. 6 is a vertical sectional view taken along in line 6-6 of Fig. 3;

Fig. 7 is a horizontal sectional view taken along line 'l--! of Fig. 6;

Fig. 8 is a detail View, partly in elevation and partly in section of a portion of one of the drilling heads shown in Fig. 1;

Fig. 9 is a detail plan view of the base of the indexing unit shown in Fig. 2; and

Figs. 10, 11, and 12 show the flame end, a section, and the entrance end respectively of a blank drilled while held by the apparatus of the invention.

Oxy-acetylene blowpipe nozzles, especially cutting nozzles, are usually provided with a central longitudinal oxygen passage, and a series of longitudinal preheat passages arranged in a circle about the oxygen passage and in such relation thereto that they are capable of delivering substantially a ring of preheating flames about the oxygen passage. The preheat passages at the exit or flame end of such nozzles should be located as accurately as possible about the central oxygen passage, and in some instances a great number of these passages is necessary in order to give the proper preheat for a cutting operation.

With the apparatus of this invention over- I size passages may be formed within a metal blank by simultaneously drilling from opposite ends thereof with drills of relatively small diameter for penetrating the flame end, and drills of relatively larger diameter for penetrating. the entrance end of the blank. Thus a large number of preheat passages arranged in a relatively maintain the ratio between the passage diameters and the Wall thicknesses dividing the passages of such proportion as to avoid folding of the metal between said passages during the metal-working operation. In order to eliminate the inaccuracies incident to the drilling of long passages with the relatively small diameter drills, their degree of penetration has been minimizedand drills of larger diameter are employed for drilling from the entrance end of the blank to a point substantially beyond the center thereof. It is possible to use larger drills at the entrance end of the blank because this end is subsequently provided with seating surfaces requiring the disposition of the preheat passage-entrances in a relativelylarge circle thereby affording greater wall thickness between the passages.

A pair of substantially axially aligned, oppositely disposed drills are adapted to be fed along the central longitudinal axis of the metal blank. These drills are fed in such a relation that the larger drill completes its Work before the smaller. It'is fed to a point substantially beyond the center of the blank, and due to synchronizationbegins to recede before the smaller drill penetrates to, and breaks through the bottom of thepassage formed by the larger drill. The metal blank is then movedto a position where the axes of the aligned drills define a line extending lon- .gintudinally through the blank but spaced from the longitudinal central passage. The drills are thensimultaneously fed from opposite ends of the blank along this newly defined line similarly to the manner in which they were fed along the longitudinal central axis of the blank. The metal blank is then rotated about its central longitudinal axis and similar passages are formed at regular intervals, thus providing a series of passages which are arranged about the central longitudinal passage. The series of passages may beparallel with the central axis, or they may converge toward said central passage. In the present embodiment of the invention these passages converge toward the central passage, and the movement of the metal blank after the drilling of the central passage is such that the axes of the aligned drills define a line through the metal, blank which converges towardthe central axis of said blank- One form of apparatus is shown in the drawings and comprises a drillassembly including a table T adaptedto support a pair ofaligned oppositely disposed drill-heads H, H, respectively operated .by motors M (only one of which is shown) which are adapted to rotate as well as reciprocate drill spindles Sand S'. Simultaneous reciprocative movement of the spindles S and S may be effected by movement of a lever 0 when the motors M are operating. The timing of the movement of spindles S and S is such that the former begins to recede. from the point of its maximum inward displacement prior to the arrival of spindle S at said point.

A drilling fixture F, having a pairof gripping jaws J, J for rigidly securing a blank B during the drilling operation, is mounted on the supporting table T between the drill-headsH, H. The fixture F is provided with means operated by a lever L for turning it to a positionsuch that the axesoi the drills in spindles S, S define a line spaced from and converging toward the central .axis of theblank B. The drilling fixture F is further provided with a hand-indexing unit I adapted to selectively rotate .theablankB and the gripping jaws J, J intermittently about the longitudinal central axis of the blank.

In accordance with the present invention, round hard-drawn copper rod-stock is cut to the desired length, and a forming tool is used to round the corners of the resulting blank during the cutting operation. The blank is inserted within the jaws J, J which are clamped so as to maintainthe blank in fixed position. The fixture F ispositioned so that the axesof the drills within the spindles S, S coincide with the central longitudinal axis of the blank B. The lever O is moved to the left thereby causing the drills within spindles S, S to form a central longitudinal-passage-within the blank B.

After=the-central longitudinal passage has been formed, the'operator turns the fixture F eccentricallyabout a vertical pivot by operating the hand-lever L so that the axes of the drills define a line through the blank, spaced from and converging toward the longitudinal central passage. The hand-lever Ois again moved to the left, and the drills within spindles S, S operate to form a passage within theblank which converges toward the central passage. Upon the completion of the formation of this last passage, the operator actuates the indexing unit I by moving the handle I first upwardly and then downwardly thus effecting a predetermined rotative movement of the blank B about its longitudinal central, axis, and similar drilling operations may be performed at spaced points about the central passage .thus forming a ring of converging accurately-formed passages surrounding the longitudinal .central passage. The jaws, J, J are then opened, the blank removed, another blank inserted, and the drilling. operations are, repeated.

The automatic drill-heads H, H are identical in construction, and are substantially thesame as the Automatic sensitive drilling heads No. 18

manufactured by The Kingsbury Machine Tool Corporation. Since thespecific drill-head construction forms no part of the present invention, only thatportion of the same will be described which is necessary for a clear understanding of their relation with the apparatus of this invention; ,aspecific description of their construction and operation may be had from Bulletin No. 1-35 entitled .Kingsbury Production Units published bythe above-referred to corporation,

and adapted to rotate,.the spindle S. The spindle S is adapted. to be reciprocated automatically .2l within which the spindle S iskeyed. .Rotationof the friction-wheel l3, imparts ,an oscillatory movement of the rack 16, the gear-segment H, the gear l9- and the rack 20, and conquently a reciprocating motion to the spindle S.

A latch lever 22 is .adapted to lock the rack IS in a position preventingthe reciprocation of the spindle S, and it is automatically engaged with therackzlb when the segmentalplate l5 ismoved to its maximum extent by the action of the cam surfaces on the reverse face of friction-wheel. l3. Thus it is seen that by tripping the lever 22, the rotation of the friction-wheel l3 will begin and upon completion of one revolution thereof, the lever 22 will automatically re-engage and lock the rack l6 when the spindle S is withdrawn from the Work. The cam surfaces on the reverse face of wheel I3, which coact with follower l4, may be designed so that the spindle S will recede slightly one or more times during the. forward motion of the spindle S in order to clear the drill of chips, and so that latch 22 will engage the rack [6 at the end of each revolution of the wheel I3.

The drill-head H is substantially identical with the drill-head H and its lever 22 is simultaneously tripped with that of head H. For this purpose, a U-shaped bracket 23, pivotally mounted on the top of table T between the drill-heads H, H, is adapted to be connected to drawbars 24 and 25 respectively attached to the trip levers 22 of the respective heads H and H. The bracket 23 is further provided with an operating handle for manually moving bracket 23 about its pivot on table T, thus effecting the tripping of the latch levers 22. The timing of the reciprocative movement of spindle S with respect to that of spindle S is such that the feeding of the drill, supported by the latter, is interrupted before it reaches its maximum degree of penetration and locked against further penetration until the drill in spindle S reaches its maximum degree of penetration and begins to recede therefrom, thus preventing interference of the respective drills within the blank B.

The friction-Wheel of head H is provided with an automatic locking mechanism adapted to interrupt the reciprocative movement of spindle S when the friction-wheel of head H reaches a predetermined angular position. Completion of the penetration of the drill supported in spindle S is effected by the release of this locking mechanism, which release is controlled by the head H. Referring to Fig. 1, a face-cam 21 is formed on the outer face of the friction-wheel l3 and is adapted to oscillate a cam-follower 28 journalled on a pin in one end of an oscillatable lever 29. A pivot shaft 36, extending through the head H, and upon which pivotal plate-segment I is journalled, is adapted to fixedly support the lever 29', on its one end, and a similar oscillatable lever (not shown) on its other end. This latter lever is connected to a draw-bar 3|, which engages a tripping device adapted. to release the locking mechanism associated with the friction-wheel of head H. The low point of cam 21 causes lever 29 to oscillate once during each revolution of friction-wheel l3, and this low point is so located that release of the locking mechanism associated with the friction-wheel of head H occurs after the drill in spindle S begins to recede from its maximum degree of penetration.

Drilling fixture F comprises a U-shaped standard 36 mounted for slight pivotal movement on the table T between the drill-heads H and H. Referring to Figs. 2 and 9, a base-plate 38 is rigidly secured to the top of table T between the drill-heads H and H, and is adapted to receive a plate 46 pivoted thereto by pin 44, about which the standard may swing eccentrically with respect to the jaws J and J. The plate 46 is provided with an arcuate edge-surface 45 adapted to cooperate with, and to be guided by a guide the plate 38.

42 mounted along one side of the plate 38. The guide 42 is provided with a mating arcuate surface and a portion 43 adapted to overlie the arcuate edge of plate 40. The U-shaped standard 36 is adapted to be removably positioned in fixed relation with respect to the plate 40, and is mounted thereon by a cooperating tongue and groove connection 4| and a dowel pin passing between the bottom of standard 36 and into the plate 40.

Standard 36 is adapted to be adjustably secured in two or more positions with respect to One position of the standard 36 is such that it will support the blank B with its longitudinal central axis coincident with the axes ofthe drills within spindles S and S. Another position of the standard 36 with respect to the base-plate 38 is such that the axes of the drills define a line extending longitudinally through the blank B but spaced from, and. converging toward the central longitudinal axis. The plate 40, and consequently the standard 36, is releasably held in adjusted position by a spring detent device, adapted to cooperate with a positioning plate 46 rigidly secured to the guide 42. The positioning plate 46 is provided with a recess 48 located on the center line of plate 40 that passes through the center of pivot pin 44. and a similar recess 56 is positioned a predetermined arcuate distance from the recess 48. changeable plates 46 may be provided having different arcuately positioned recesses 48 and 50 so that converging passages of varying degrees may be drilled about the central longitudinal passage within the blank B. The spring-detent device comprises a housing 52 rigidly secured to one of the legs of the standard 36, and it is provided with a guide slot 54 (see Fig. 6) adapted to receive and slidingly engage a detent 56. The detent 56 is provided with a handle recess 58 in one side thereof, and a tooth 66 adapted to cooperate with the recesses 48 and 50 of the positached, and its one end is provided with a curved. portion 68 adapted to cooperate with the handle apertur 58 within the detent 56. It is thus apparent that the U-shaped standard 36 may be adjusted from one position to another by simply operating handle L so as to raise the detent 56 against the action of coil-spring 64 to a point where tooth 60 disengages the recesses 48 and 50, and moving the standard to an adjusted position. Upon releasing the handle L, spring 64 causes the detent 56 and consequently tooth 66 to move downwardly and to engage the selected recesses 48 and 5|].

Gripping jaws J and J which rigidly hold the blank B in position to be operated upon by the drills in spindles S and S, are adapted to be rotatively supported by the legs of standard 36. Referring to Figs. 5 and 6, the gripping jaw J comprises a body-portion Ill, to which a pair of rings 68 are doweled at its central portion. These rings are adapted to be mounted for rotation within the upper portion of the legs of standard 36. The body-portion further comprises extended bifurcated portions forming legs 12 and 14 extending in opposite directions from the central portion thereof. Each pair of these extend- A series of inter-- ed. legs is provided .with alignedlpivot apertures adapted :to receive pins. 'I6zand 18' respectively. "A pair of. right angularly arranged. grippingzsurfaces. 80 arexpositioned withinthe body-portion I0. A plunger 8|, to berdescribedzlater, is mounted in one of the surfaces 80. for expelling .the blank B-when the jaws -areaopened. Thexother gripping jaw J. comprises a body-portion 82:having a bifurcated extension forming legs 84:.and .a tongue-portion 86, extending in opposite directions from said body-portion. 'The\legs"84 and the tongue 86 of the body-portion 82. are provided with pivot apertures, for a purpose to beadescribed later. The body-portion 82 of the iaw J is adapted to. freely pass withinthe space between the rings 68 of" the jaw J, and the tongueportion 86 isadapted to be;mounted on. thepivotpin I8. A pin 88 is positioned between the legs 84, and itis adapted to support a latch-lever 98 having a hook-portion I00 adapted to engage the pin 16 in the legs I2. The body-portion82 of the jaw J is further provided *with a pair of rightangularly arranged gripping surfacesl'96 so arranged that they; together'with gripping surfaces 80, rigidly secure the blank B between the:same when the jaws are locked in clamped'relation. The tongue 86 of the body-portion 8211s provided with a tail 8? which isadapted to engage and actuate th ejecting plunger 8i when jaw J is swung to open position. Drill-guides"90 having the correct number: and position of holes corresponding to the passages to be drilled within the blank B are positioned in recesses formed Within the rings 68, and they are adapted to guide the drills during their movement toward the blank B.

The jaws J and J 'are rotatably supported .by the U-shaped standard 36 by* rigidly mounting the jaw assembly between a pair 'ofbushings I02 and I04 journalled in the legs of the standard 36.

The indexing unit I isadapted to be associated with the bushing I04, and comprises an adjustable rotating mechanism and detent-locking device capable of accurately locating and indexing the blank 13 about its longitudinal central axis so that as many passages as desired may be formed about the central longitudinal passage. Referring to Figs. 3, 4 and 6, the indexing unit I comprises a ratchet wheel' I06 .mounted on an extension of the bushing. I04 and rigidly secured thereto. The handle I is provided at its one end with an annular portion I08 adapted to slidingly engage the extension ofbushing I04 and is positioned adjacent to the ratchet-wheel I06. An end-plate I0! is adapted to overlie the annular portion I08, and is fixed to the end of bushing I04 by screws extending within the inner circumference of the annular portion I08 of the handle I so as not to interfere with the free movement of said handle. A'pawl H0 (Fig. 4) is pivotally mounted on the handle I in position to overlie the ratchet-wheel I06 and it is so arranged that clockwise movement of the handle I will cause the pawl to freely slide over the ratchet-teeth on the ratchet-wheel I06, and counter-clockwise movement of the handle I will effect rotation of the wheel I06, and of the bushing I04 together with the gripping jaws J and J. In order to prevent clockwise movementof. the ratchet-wheel I06 when the handle I is moved in that direction, another pawl H2, adapted to overlie and engage the teeth of the same, is pivotally mounted on a boss II4 fixed to one of the-legs of the standard 36.

A controlled degree of rotative movement may be imparted to the blank 13 by locking and abutting. devices respectively associated with the ratchet-wheel I06 and the handle I, and a spring-pressed detent mounted on one leg of standard 36. This limiting mechanism includes a device somewhat similar to the spring-pressed detent 56 associated with th pivot-plate 40. As shown in Fig. 4, it comprises a guide housing II6 provided with a vertical slot IIB, adapted to slidingly. receive a detent I20. The detent I20 is provided'with a recess I22 within which a coiladjustably controlled by providing an angle abutment I (see Fig.3) on an extended segmental portion I32 of the annular portion I08 of handle I. One leg of the angleabutment overlies the edge of the segmental portion I32, for a purpose to be described. The extended segmental portion I32 is provided withan arcuately arranged series of threaded apertures I33 adapted to receive the fastening means for the abutment I30. Thus, it is apparent that the angle abutment I30 may be adjustably positioned angularly about the peripheryof the annular portion I08. The overlying leg of said abutment I30 will coact with the relatively wide tooth I28 of the detent I20, thereby adjustably limiting the clockwise movement of handleI. Counter-clockwise movement of the handle I may be adjustably controlled by the oooperation of the spring-pressed detent I20 witht35 notches I36 circumferentially arranged about an extended flange portion I38 of the bushing I04 (see'Figs. 4 and 6). The. notches are each provided at their bottomswith screw-threaded openings for receiving plugs I40 adapted to fill up unrequired notches and to eliminate their limiting effect. A number of these plugs I40 may be conveniently mounted along one leg of the standard 36 as shown in Fig. 2.

The extended segmentalportion I32 is further provided witha cam-surface I42 (Fig. 3) adapted to depress the detent-tooth I28 and disengage it from the notches of flange I3B during the clockwise. motion ofthe handle I, and to maintain it in disengaged position during the greater portion 5 of the counter-clockwise motion ofsaid handle. During the counter-clockwise motion of handle I, thezratchettwheel I06 together with the flange I38 and the gripping jaws J and J are rotated in a counter-clockwise;direction. Thus, the cam- 5' surface I42 moves to a position where detent I20 is permitted to move upwardly, whereupon its tooth .I2B'engages the periphery of theflange I38 and; seats within. the-next succeeding open notch Although the various features of the invention have: been shown; and described in detail to fully disclose one embodimentof this invention, it will be evident that numerous changes may be made in such details; and certain features may be used without others, without departing from the prin- 'ciplesof the invention.
