30 Claims.

My invention comprises a new and improved machine for applying pre-formed jackets to ice cream cones.

The jackets, which this machine is designed to apply, constitute the subject matter of my application, Ser. No. 322,853, filed March 7, 1940, and comprise hollow frusto-vconical bodies of paper or other suitable material, of a size and form constructed to fit the cones between the bowl (orthe nesting ring) of the cone and a stop ring.

(or lugs) locatedadjacent the point of the cone. Primarily, the present invention has for its object to provide means for assembling cones and jackets on a commercial scale by a machine whichjis simple in construction, inexpensive to maintain, and by means of which the jackets are fed from a magazine into carriages or holders, the holders brought to a loading station where the cones are placed in the jackets, then the jackets are brought to their final positions and locked to the cones automatically, after which the jacketed cones are discharged from the machine into a suitable receptacle.

i In general, the invention has for an object to provide an endless conveyor for the carriages or cone-jacket carriers, a mechanism for depositing the jackets, one at a time, from a stack of nested jackets into each pocket of the carriage, a

mechanism for pressing the cones and jackets together to lock the jackets to the cones, and a discharge mechanism for delivering the eted cones from the carriages.

Other objects will in part be obvious and in part be pointed out hereinafter.

- To the attainment of the aforesaid objects and ends the invention still further resides in the novel details of construction; combination and arrangement of parts, all of which will be first fully described in the following detailed descrip tion, and then be particularlypointed out in the appended claims, reference being had to the ac companying drawings, in which:

Fig. 1 is an elevation of the machine viewed from the front.

Fig. 2 is a side elevation of the machine looking, from right to left, in Fig. 1.

Fig. 3 is a side elevation of the machine, looking from left to right,in Fig. 1.

. Fig. 4 is a vertical section on the line 4-4 of 50 jackthe jackets so that the lower ends of the jackets Fig. 'I is an inverted plan view of the parts shownfin Fig. 6. l 1

Fig. 8 is a cross section on the line 8-8 of Fig.6. r

Fig. 9 is across section on the line 9-9 of Fig. 6, with the carrier partly open for discharge of the jacketed cones. I

Fig. 10 is a detail perspective view of one of the jacket feeding elements.

In the drawings, in which like numbers and letters of reference indicate like parts in all the figures, c designates the cones, n. r. the nesting rings, r the stop ring (lugs 01 projections), J the jackets, A the station where the jackets are fed to the carriers, B the station where the cones are placed in the jackets carried by the carriers, C the station where the cones are pressed into passthe stop' ring r, and D the station where the jacketed cones arefreed from the carriers discharged from the machine. A

The machine comprises a frame composed of uprights I, top and bottom side braces '2, 2*,

Bars ,1 and s (the latter being adjustably secured as" at 9, 10) are secured to the uprights I Fig. 5 an enlarged detail vertical section on,

the line 5,5 of Fig. 1.

Fig, 6 is an enlarged detail top plan view of one of the jacketcarriersor. carriages.

andhave bearings for the conveyor shafts I l and 12, respectively (see Fig. 2).

On each shaft II and I2 is mounted in spaced relation two sprockets l3 around which endless chains 14 pass. These chains, at suitable inter-. vals, have links provided with arms l5 having bearings for the trunnions N5 of the carriers or carriages.

The construction of the carriers is best shown inFigs; 5 to 9, inclusive, by reference to which it will be seen that the trunnions l6 are on side plates Il between which and mounted at the ends in the side plates are parallel shafts l8 on each of which is. secured (by spot welding or any other suitable way) a plate l9.

The two plates is have their adjacent edges in proximity andare held in the same plane nor mally by means of springs 22 and abutment lugs 24 against which'the fingers 23 rest (see Fig. 8). Each plate 19, has one-half of an opening to receive jackets; flexible, resilient washers 20 are clamped to the plates I9 by clamp plates 2| and screw bolts and nuts 30, the washers 20 having arcuate portions to correspond with the arcuate openings in the plates.

. Secured toxthe under side of the plates l9 are thin resilient fingers 29 which serve to steady and and carriers against swinging while passing from the The cam 63 is mounted on a shaft 64 journalled in suitable bearings on the rear uprights l and carrying a pinion 65 which meshes with a rack 68 on a rack-carrying frame 69.

The shaft 64 also carries side arms 66 whose rounded ends 61 serve to engagathe tops of the plates l9 to open the carriers (see dotted lines, Fig. 9) for the' purpose of releasing the jacketed: comesintoJ-the chutes; as will? later more clearly appear.

On one side of the machine is a vertically reciprocable bar Tl mounted to slide in bearings cone-loading station B downwardly,;fixed:ver'-' I tical guides are provided to contact the sides of the plates [1 (see Figs. 2$=3and 5'): the. carriers pass to the presser'station where the jackets are locked" to the cones, bottom guides 21, over which the plates I9: ride:,. engage; the: q bars 9| which slide over the horizontal portions her 'p... adJ-ustably in position.

Further movement ofshaft 44 to complete-its turn, causes pins 58to be lowered clear of the jackets, pusher 16,111 to be raised clear of the cones in the lowest carriage, arms 66 to be swung back up, and chute 85 swung out again, thus completing one cycle of operation. a

During-this cycle, while .the conveyor is tionary, an jackets held in the carrier whichis located at'sta-' tion B. If the machine is s speeded up that thereis insufficient time-to fill all jackets at stathetion B, the remainder may be filled during lowering of the carriage from station B.

From the foregoing description, taken in connection with the accompanying drawings-it is thought that theconstruction, operation and advantages of my invention will be clear to those skilled in the art and, while I have shown a preferred form of the invention, I wish it under stood that I am not tobe limited thereto, since modifications and changes in the detailsof construction can readily 'be made by those skilled in the art within the scope 'of the; appended claims, a
