This invention relates to an adhesive applying device and more particularly to a device for applying adhesive to the inside ofclosurebodies for the securement of sealing liners thereto.
It is an object of my invention to provide a simple device by which adhesives of varying. degrees of iiowability may be applied to the head portions of closures and maybe disposed uniformly and in predetermined quantity therein to effect adhesive securement ofv a sealing liner disposed -in engagement therewith throughout substantially the'entire extent of the surfaces in engagement with the adhesive.
Common practice heretofore has been to apply a single drop of adhesive to the central portion of the head of the closure body and rely upon the application of pressure to the liner to spread the adhesive over the contacting surfaces. This has been found generally unsatisfactory, particularly with the lessuid adhesives.
In order that my invention will be readily understood, I will describe the same in conjunction with the attached' drawing in which Figure 1 is a side elevation, partially broken away, illustrating the device of my invention attached to the reciprocating arm of a closure lining machine;
Figure 2 is a similar View showing particularly a valve mechanism ifor the adhesivesupply line in closed position;v A A Figure. ,3 is a partial sectional view showing the valve mechanism in open position:
Figure i is a bottom plan view of a preferred formV of distribution head; and
Figure 5 is a sectional view of a further modication.
vReferring to Figure l, there is shown a support 2 which carries a molded closure 3 to which adhesive is to be applied to the surface 4 of the head portion thereof by the adhesive applying device generally indicated by the numeral 5. The applicator E is carried by an arm 6 adapted for reciprocatory motion in a vertical plane to bring the applicator 5 into engagement with the surface 4 of the closure 3 to deposit adhesive thereon and to withdraw the applicator E from the closure to permit movement of the closure since any mechanism suitable for imparting such motion to the arm 6 will be satisfactory.
'Ihe adhesive is carried in a reservoir 1 and is placed under pressure by means of air introduced from a suitable source through a exible hose 8. A conduit 9 communicates with the bottom of the reservoir 1 and with a central feeder I0 (Figure 2) provided in a valve body II. The valve body II is movable axially within an axial bore I2 provided in the body I3 of the applicator 5. Passageways I4 extend radially from the central feeder Ill to the outer periphery of the valve body I I and are closed by the surface of the axial bore I2. The passageways Il are normally held in closed position byl retraction to a position within the bore I2 by a spring l5 which encircles the valve b ody II and is disposed V between an upper surface IB of the body I3 anda radial projection l1 on the valve body II. The projection I1, in the embodiment shown in Figure 2, is formed as a nut to facilitate assembly of the applicator 5 to the conduit 9, the terminal end of the valve body Il being provided with screw threads I8 engageable with complementary threads I8' (shown in dotted lines in Figure 1) formed in the central bore of the conduit 9. Movement of the valve body I I with 'respect to the body I3 is limited by a valve plate I9 attached to the end of the valve body II by ascrew 2l. The valve plate I9 serves as a supplementary seal. acting against the surface of the body I3 surrounding the'central bore I2, aiding in the sealing of the passageways I4.
` A chamber 2| for the reception of adhesive is provided in the body I3 below the plate 20 and the bottom of this chamber is closed by a distributing head 22 formed with ports 23 communieating with the chamber 2l and extending to the outer face of the distributing head 22. As shown in Figure 4, the ports 23 are radially and circumferentially spaced and are connected by circumferentially and radially disposed grooves 24, which intersect to facilitate yproper distribution.
In the operation of my device, a closure 3 positioned on the support 2 is brought into the. adhesive applying station and the arin 8 is reciprocated in a vertically downward direction, bringing -the distributing head 22 into engagement with the surface 8 of the head of the closure 3.
As downward. motion continues, the applicator n body I3 is displaced with respect to the valve body I I as shown in Figure 3, compressing spring I5, and adhesive under air, pressure flows from the reservoir 'I, through the conduit S, the central feeder I0, and the passageways I8 into the A chamber 2| and thence through the ports 23 to the grooves 26 into engagement with the surface 4. After completion of the downward movement,
the arm 6 is elevated and the spring l5 causes the applicator body i3 to move with respect to the valve body ii bringing the paasageways I4 within the bore i2 and the plate it into engagement with the applicator body It surrounding the bore I2, `thus sealing the communication line from the reservoir l to the chamber 2i. The
closure 3 is then moved from the adhesive applying station and a new closure is presented thereto.
Inorder to facilitate the application of adhesive to closures of various sizes, the conduitd is screw threaded in an area 25 and is provided with clamp nuts 2t and 2l to permit vertical adjustment of the applicator with respect to thel arm t to insure proper engagement of the dis'- tributinghead 22 with the surface d of the clov sure 3 upon downward movement of the arm 6.
The applicator assembly t is, as previously pointed out, screw threaded to the conduit 9 so that the same may be conveniently removed and replaced by a device having the proper diameter for the closures being operated upon. Additionally, the distribution head 22 is attached to the body I 3 by screw threads 2B so thatit may be conveniently changed.
In Figure 5, there is shown a modified construction in which a'tapered valve 29 is provided for controlling the iiow of adhesive from the reser f voir l? to the distributing chamber Ziin place of the valve arrangement of Figure 2.` The applicator of Figure operates in the same manner as the applicator shown in Figures 1, 2, 3 and 4 and corresponding numbers have been applied to corresponding parts. -It will be noted, however, that the distributing head 22 is of different contour than .the head of Figure 2,v illustrating the interchangeability of the distributing head to operate upon closures of varying diameter. l
While I have illustrated and described certain preferred embodiments of my invention, it will be understood that the invention is not so lima,ae4,esa
