13 Claims. l

This invention relates to sheet feeding mechanism forv rotary printing machines, especially machines of the type described in Patent No. 2,231,914, in which the sh'eets are fed to a rotating cylinder on which they are registered without interrupting their motion into the machine.

By employing the invention herein disclosed, the leading edge of each sheet when fed to such a machine is registered as it moves forward toward the machine, and is brought to and held in accurate register during its forward motion to the printing machine.

An object of the invention is to provide a sheet feeding mechanism that will register the leading edge of a sheet of paper or other fiexible material in transit from a pile of sheets to a printing machine and deliver the sheet to a rotating ele--` ment of the machine with its leading edge in accurate register and without stopping the sheet.

It is also an object of the invention to provide a sheet feeding and registering mechanism of generally improved construction, whereby the device will be simple, durable and inexpensive in construction, as well as convenient, practical, serviceable and eicient in its use.

With' the foregoing and other objects in view, which will appear as the description proceeds, the invention resides in :the combinations and arrangements of parts, and in the details of construction hereinafter described and claimed, it being understood that various changes in the precise embodiment of the invention herein disclosed may be made within the scope of what is claimed without departing from the spirit of the invention.

The preferred embodiment of the invention is illustrated in the accompanying drawings, where- 1n:

Referring to the drawings, and especially to Figure 1, a sheet feeding mechanism is shown which includes a sheet timing cylinder I I to which sheets are forwarded by sheet carrying belts I2. .From the sheet timing cylinder I l the sheets are transferred to a sheet receiving cylinder of a printing machine, which may be the cylinder I3 of Patent 2,231,914, that carries sheet stops against which the front edge of a sheet is pressed by the sheet carrying belts I2, and gripper mech anism adapted to hold the sheet and also the side registering mechanism, al1 of which is fully disclosed in the drawings and specification of the patent mentioned.

The sheet carrying belts I2 are driven by pulleys I3, secured to a shaft I4, that is rotatably supported in side frame members I5 and I5a. From the pulleys I3, the belts I2 are led around a belt tightening pulley I6, thence about pulleys I1 and I 8 and they return along the feed board I 9 to the pulley I3.

First over-sheetbelts 2| are led around pulleys 22, th'at are rotatably supported on a shaft 23, carried by side frame members I5 and I5a, each belt 2| being led also around a belt tightening pulley 25 suitably supported over a pile of' sheets in a conventional sheet feeder 24.

Second over-sheet belts 26 are led around pulleys 22 and tightening pulleys 21, and driven by pulleys 28 secured to a shaft 29 rotatably supported in side frame members I5 and I5a.

Third over-sheet belts 3l are led Varound the sheet timing cylinder II, guide pulleys 3 3, and belt tightening pulleys 32. l

Fourth over-sheet belts 34 also are led around the sh'eet timing cylinder II,V over a sheet receiving cylinder 35, about guide pulleys 36, and belt tightening pulleys 31.

A sheet retarding device (Figures 2,74, and 6),

includes sheet stop members 33 carried on chains 39 which are supported on and driven by sprockets 4I secured to a sprocket shaft 42 that is rotatably supported in the side frame members I5 and I5a. An idler sprocket 43 supports Ithe chain 33 at the opposite end of its run.

A gear 46 (Figure 5) is secured on the sprocket shaft 42 and meshes with an idler gear 41, that in turn meshes with a gear 48, secured on the shaft I4, which drives the pulleys I3 (Figure 3) and thereby the sheet carrying belts I2. The gear 48 (Figure 5) meshes with an idler gear 49, which in turn is driven by a gear 5I secured to a shaft 52 rotatably supported in a bearing bushing 53 (Figure 3) secured to the side frame inember 6I. Gear 54 is secured to the outer end of the shaft 52 and meshes with a gear 55, secured on shaft 53 of the sheet timing cylinder II. A gear 51 also secured on the shaft 56 meshes with a gear 53, secured on a shaft 5S of the sheet receiving cylinder 35.

The sheet timing cylinder shaft 56 is journaled in the main frame members 5I and Ela, while the rotating shafts carrying the pulleys I3 are journaled in the side frame members I5 and ld, which have lugs 62 and 62a respectively, that are suitably secured to a cross member 63 of the main frame. The opposite ends of the side frame members I5 and I5a are each secured to a feeder frame member Sli. The shaft I4 is provided with an intermediate bearing formed in a bracket 65 suitably secured to the cross member 63.

The sheet receiving cylinder 35 (Figure 2) carries grippers 66 and sheet stops 61 preferably arranged as fully disclosed in Patent 2,231,914. Other sheet stops 3S project from the periphery of the sheet timing cylinder II. The sheet stops 61 and S8 are arranged in different planes transversely of the cylinders II and 35, to avoid interference of the stops B'I with the stops 68. The diameter of the sheet timing cylinder II is slightly greater than the diameter of the sheet receiving cylinder 35, although they are geared together to run at the same angular velocity, and their sheetstops are all in alignment in a plane common to the axes of both cylinders when a sheet is transferred from the cylinder II to the cylinder 35. It will thus be seen that the stops on the sheet timing cylinder I I are behind the stops on the sheet taking cylinder as they approach their closest positions, but the stops on the timing cylinder overtake the stops on the sheet taking cylinder at this point. Thereafter, the stops on the timing cylinder move ahead of the stops on the sheet taking cylinder and clear of the edge of the sheet.

The third and fourth over-sheet belts 3I and 34 wrap about a large portion of the periphery of the sheet timing cylinder I I, and consequently are driven at substantially the same speed as that cylinder. The chain 39 carrying the sheet stops 38 is driven at a slightly faster speed than the belts 3|, andthe sheet carrying belts I2 are driven at a speed slightly faster than the chain 39. The second over-sheet belts 26 are driven by the pulleys 28 and drive the pulleys 22, which in turn drive the first over-sheet belts 2 I. The belts 26 and 2l thus run at substantially the same speed, the arrangement preferably being such that this speed is slightly higher than that l of the sheet carrying belts I2.

The third and fourth over-sheet belts 3I and 34, may be driven at a speed 8% above the speed of the sheet receiving cylinder 35, the sheet stops 38 at a speed 12% above that of the sheet receiving cylinder, the sheet carrying belts I2 at a speed 20% above the sheet receiving cylinder. and the over-sheet belts 2I and 26 at any speed slightly higher than .the sheet carrying belts I2.

When a sheet is separated from the pile on the feeder 24 by the usual sheet separating'and forwarding mechanism, it is `propelled forward by conventional forwarding rollers 69 and 1I, which are operated in accordance with the usual practice to propel the sheet forward to the belts I2 and 2l which carry it forward to the pulleys 22 after which it is carried between belts I2 and 26.

Traction balls 'I2 (Figures 1 and 2), loosely held in a guide member 13, are secured to cross bars 'I4 and 15. These traction balls are placed directly over certain of the sheet carrying belts I2 and serve to press the sheet against the belts and insure movement of the sheet at substantially the speed of the belt. The sheet moves forward with the sheet carrying belts I2 until the forward edge of the sheet overtakes the stop members 38 which are moving at a slightly slower speed. IThe leading edge of the sheet will thus be pressed against the stop members and be brought into alignment therewith. Thereafter some slippage occurs between the sheet carrying belts I2 and the sheet, and this acts to constantly urge the leading edge of the sheet forward against the stops 38. The stops 658 on the sheet timing cylinder II are timed to meet the leading edge of the sheet and the sheet is pressed against these stops when it reaches the position shown in Figure 4.

As each stop 38 is carried around a sprocket 4I, its motion is accelerated due to the stop being at a greater radial distance from the axis of the shaft 42 than the pitch line of the chain 39, hence the stop 38 is moved forward from the edge of the sheet. the motion of the sheet then being slightly accelerated by the sheet carrying belts I2, but it is later slightly decelerated due to the slower speed of the cylinder II. A plurality of sheet dellectors 'i6 are suitably secured to clamps 'II having locking screws 18, whereby they are secured to a cross rod I9 that is supported by side frame members I5 and Ia. A plurality of guides 3| are shaped to conform with the periphery of the cylinder II and have brackets E2 and screws 83, wherebythey are secured to a tubular cross member 84 that is supported by the side frame members I5 and I5a. The sheet deiiectors 'I in cooperation with the sheet guides 8l act to direct the sheet away from the belts l2 and the sheet stops 38 and toward the periphery of the sheet timing cylinder II.

The leading edge of the sheet is then pressed against the stops E8 and it moves forward with the cylinder l I, until it meets the stops fil which still further decelerate it to the speed of the sheet receiving cylinder 35, and it is then taken by grippers 6B. 'f

From the foregoing, it will be seen that with the mechanism herein disclosed, a sheet forwarded from a pile feeder, or other sheet supply device, is propelled first by the forwarding rollers 69 and 'H and guided by the first over-sheet belts 2| to engagement with the sheet carrying belts I2, which preferably are driven approximately 20% faster than the speed of the sheet receiving cylinder 35. These belts carry the sheet forward and beyond the belts 2I to the second over-sheet belts 26 and under the traction balls "l2 at the cross bar 1li, thus holding the sheet in intimate contact with the carrying belts I2.

The sheet is thus carried forward until its leading edge engages sheet stop members 33 carried by the chains 3S. These stop members preferably are driven at a speed approximately 12% faster than the peripheral speed of the sheet receiving cylinder and act to decelerate the sheet slightly and to align its leading edge parallel with the axis of the sheet receiving cylinder 35, the carrying belts and the over-sheet belts meanwhile acting The motion of the sheet thusly controlled is v continued past the traction balls l2 at the cross bar l5, and until the leading edge of the sheet approaches the sheet timing cylinder I l, the relation of the parts is such that the sheet stops 68, which are spaced along the cylinder Il, will be slightly in advance of the sheet. The peripheral speed of the cylinder II is preferably 8% higher than that of the sheet receiving cylinder 35, and the speed of the belts I 2 and 26 being still higher, the leading edge of the sheet overtakes the sheet stops 68 and is pressed against them under the urge of the sheet carrying belts I 2 and the over-sheet belts 26, thus further decelerating it. Meanwhile, the sheet stop members 38 are moved out of the path of the sheet and away from its forward edge by passing around the sprocket 4 I, the sheet being prevented from following the sheet stop, by sheet deflectors 'I6 and sheet guides 8| which conform to the periphery of the sheet timing cylinder II. The sheet has meanwhile been engaged by the over-sheet belts 3| which run between it and the sheet timing cylinder II.

After the leading edge of the sheet, which is then pressed against the stops 68 on the cylinder II, reaches the position shown in Figure 2, the sheet edge is firmly pressed against stops lil on the sheet receiving cylinder 35 which still further decelerates it, and it is then held firmly pressed against the stops 61 by the over-sheet belts 34 which, being driven by the sheet timing cylinder II, run slightly faster than the peripheral speed of the sheet receiving cylinder 35.

When the mechanism herein disclosed is employed in connection with the registering cylinder disclosed in Patent 2,231,914, the sheet is side registered during a short interval immediately after the parts move forward from the positions shown in Figures 1 and 2, after which the grippers 66 close on the sheet which is then in accurate register both longitudinally and transversely.

It will be seen that the mechanism herein disclosed provides means for controlling a sheet moving from a sheet feeder to a printing machine, so that its leading edge is pressed against moving stops which sequentially slightly reduce the speed at which the sheet travels, and the sheet is presented to the printing machine with its front edge in accurate register, thereby permitting operation at higher speeds than has heretofore been possible.

It will be understood that the invention may be embodied in other specific forms without departing from the spirit or essential attributes thereof, and it is therefore desired that the present embodiment be considered in all respects as illustrative 'and not restrictive, reference being had to the claims rather than to the foregoing description to indicate the scope of the invention.
