Application May 10, 1949, Serial No. 92,280

6 Claims.

The present invention relates generally to slip sheeter attachments for stencil duplicators, and more particularly, to an attachment of this type whichis adapted to have its operation discontinued automatically when the operation of the duplicator to which it is attached is discontinued.

Slip sheeters generally are well known in the art, and accordingly, do not need to be described in detail herein. The purpose of a slip sheeter A attachment is to introduce a slip sheet or heavy sheet of cardboard or similar material, between each printed sheet ejected by the duplicator and the next successive sheet whereby to prevent transfer of ink between wet sheets. The usual practice is to provide a tray of slip sheets supported immediately above the receiving tray at the back of the duplicator, which slip sheet tray is constructed and arranged to drop the lowermost of the slip sheets in the stack down into the receiving tray on top of each printed sheet as it is ejected. One device adapted for this purpose is illustrated and claimed in my patent, No. 1,916,723, issued July 4, 1933, and entitled Improvement in Slip Sheeters.

Theparticular problem dealt with herein is that of discontinuing the operation of the slip sheeter mechanism whenever the actual printing of sheets by the duplicator is interrupted. -It is the usual practice in most duplicators, particularly those which are power-driven, to first start the drive mechanism which involves the printing elements, 1. e., stencil and impression rollers, for the purpose of making various preliminary adjustments of the machine, and thereafter engaging the feed mechanism which feeds the blank sheets into the duplicator to receive their impres- SlOIl.

The slip sheeter attachment employed with such machines is mechanically linked to the aforesaid drive mechanism, and so conventionally, unless special means are provided, the slip sheeter mechanism operates immediately that the duplicator is started. Thus, the machine Withits attachment will immediately commence the operation of the slip sheeter to drop slip sheets into the receiving tray whether paper is then being fed through the duplicator or not.

Accordingly, it is a major object of the present invention to provide a slip sheeter attachment in which the members linking the mechanical movement of the duplicator with the mechanical movement of the slip sheeter includes a disengageable element responsive to the paper feed 2 mechanism and/or the actual printing elements in the duplicator.

Another object of the invention is to provide a mounting for a slip sheeter attachment which permits easy and rapid detachment of the slip sheeter mechanism from the duplicator, and also permits the same to be lifted for the purpose of removing printed sheets and slip sheets from the receiving tray.

, Still another object of the invention is to provide a slip sheeter attachment which may be readily attached to the duplicator without the use of special tools, and without substantial modification of the duplicator structure.

The foregoing and other objects, and advantages of the invention will be apparent from the following detailed description of two forms thereof, such consideration being given likewise to the attached drawings, in which: Figure 1 is a side elevational view of a stencil duplicator having attached thereto a slip sheeter mechanism embodying one form of the invention;

Figure 2 is a fragmentary, elevational view similar to the left-hand portion of the device shown in Figure 1, but showing the slip sheeter attachment in a, raised position;

Figure 3 is an'elevational sectional view taken on the line 3-3 in Figure 1;

Figure 4 is a fragmentary section taken on the line 4-4 in Figure 1, showing the means'for supporting and feeding the slip sheets;

Figure 5 is an elevational view looking outwardly from inside the duplicator illustrated in Figure 1, and illustrating portions of the linkage mechanism connecting the duplicator and the slip sheeter attachment;

Figure 6 is a partially sectioned view taken on the line 6-6 in Figure 5;

Figure '7- is a fragmentary elevational view similar to Figure 5, but showing the parts in a disengaged position;

Figure 8 is a horizontal sectional view taken on the line 88 in Figure 7 Figure 9 is a fragmentary elevational view of .a duplicator and slip sheeter attachment embodying a modified form of the invention, a part of the duplicator being broken away to reveal underlying parts;

Figure 10 is an elevational view looking outward form inside of the duplicator of Figure 9, further illustrating the parts of the linkage interconnecting the duplicator and slip sheeter attachment; and

Figure 11 is a partially sectioned view taken on the line I l-I I in Figure 10.

For the following detailed description of a first form of the invention, reference should be had to Figures 1 through 8, wherein it will be seen that a conventional stencil duplicator is identified by the reference character 20, and carries at the rear thereof a slip sheeter attachment identified generally by the reference character 2 In Figure 3, it will be seen that the slip sheeter attachment 2| is formed with a pair of gussetlike brackets 25 by which it is supported on the rear of the housing 22 of the duplicator 20. The attachment brackets 26 are secured to the housing 22 by means of a pair of bolts 23 at the upper ends of brackets 26, which bolts 23 are secured by nuts 24, and at the lower ends of the brackets 26, notches 21 are formed which engage a pair of studs 25 fixed in the housing 22. Thus, when it is desired to remove printed sheets from the tray 30 of the duplicator 20, the slip sheeter attachment 2| may be lifted to the position illustrated in Figure 2, whereby to provide easy access to the tray 30. When lifted, as just described, the attachment 2| pivots about the bolts 23.

In Figure 4, the principle of operation of the slip sheeter attachment 2| is illustrated. Here it will be seen that a stack of slip sheets 3| rests on a pair of longitudinal rods 32, each of which is notched, as indicated at 33, the notches running the entire length of the rod 32. When the two rods 32 are simultaneously revolved toward each other, as indicated by the arrows in Figure 4, the notches engage the edges of the lowermost slip sheet, causing the same to buckle downwardly, as indicated by dotted lines at 34, and thus eject the lowermost sheet downwardly into the tray 30' where it falls on top of the last sheet ejected from the duplicator 20.

The foregoing operation of the slip sheeter attachment is illustrated in my above-mentioned patent, and is briefly described herein for purposes of clarity in discussing the further operation of the device which involves the present invention.

As is well known in the art, each revolution of the stencil roller in the duplicator 20 ejects a printed sheet from the rear of the machine, when the paper feed mechanism is operated. When the paper feed mechanism is disengaged, however, the stencil roller continues to revolve and no sheets are fed through the device.

The means for transmitting the rotary motion of the stencil roller in the duplicator 2G to the slip sheeter mechanism 2| may be seen generally in Figure 1. Here is shown a large gear 36 conventionally mounted on a shaft of the stencil roller and the duplicator 20 meshed with an intermediate gear 31 which carries on a common shaft therewith, a second intermediate gear 38 which in turn is meshed with a crank drive gear 39, Thus, each revolution of the main drive gear 36 results in a single revolution of the crank drive gear 39 which drives a crank '40 connected by a connecting rod 4| to a driven crank '42, which forms a part of the slip sheeter attachment mechanism. The nature and disposition of the just described gears can be seen best in Figures 1 and 6.

As can be seen best in Figure l, the driven crank 42 is greater in length than the driving crank 40, whereby a complete revolution of the crank 40 results in only a partial arcuate reciprocation of the crank 42.

As illustrated in Figure 3, the crank 42 is keyed to a transverse shaft 45' journaled in a frame 46 of the slip sheeter attachment 2|. Also keyed to the transverse shaft 45 are bevel gears 41, each of which is meshed with a smaller bevel gear 48, each of the latter gears being secured to one of the rods 32.

Thus, each reciprocating motion of the crank 42 results in a reciprocal rotation of the shaft 45, and through the driving connection of the gears 41 and 48, results in reciprocal rotation of the rods 32. Accordingly, each time the stencil roller in the duplicator 2c makes one revolution, the rods 32 are reciprocated to eject one slip sheet into the tray 30.

It will be noted that, unless other means were provided, the operation of the mechanism of the slip sheeter attachment 2| would continue as long as the stencil roller in the duplicator 2U revolved, regardless of whether or not paper was being pressed through the duplicator 23. To prevent this wasteful operation, a clutch mechanism, illustrated in Figures 5 through 8, is interposed between the transmission gear 33 and the crank 40. The clutch, just described, is indicated generally by the reference character 53, and will be seen to include an arm 5| secured to a rotary shaft 52 to the right end of which is keyed a gear 39 and on the left end of which the crank 43 is rotatably carried.

Other operative members of the clutch 55 include a sector member 53, pivotall secured t the arm 5| by a pivot pin 54, and an actuating spring 55 anchored to a crosspin 56 in the arm 5| and attached at its lower end to the sector member 53 whereby to urge the same outwardly (to the left in Figure 6). An upstruck lug 5! is formed on the sector member 53 and positioned to engage the crank 40 when the sector member 53 is rotated by the gear transmission, including the gear 33. The direction of this rotationis clockwise as seen in Figure 5.

Thus, as the mechanism is rotated, the crank 40 is normally engaged for driving rotation by reason of the spring 55 urging the sector member 53 outwardly into engagement With the crank 49. In order now to disengage the clutch 50 and permit the gear 39 to be rotated without rotating the crank it, a disengaging roller 60 rotatably carried on a pivoted control member or bracket 5| may be moved inwardly to the position indicated in Figure '7, whereupon the roller 60 is positioned to engage the sector member 53 adjacent the periphery thereof whereby to force the same rearwardly against the action of the spring 55 and release the engagement of the lug 57 from the crank 45, allowing the latter to remain stationary.

The bracket 6| is mounted by a pivot 62 to a stationary mounting plate 53 which also serves to carry one of the bearings 64 for the shaft 52. The other of the bearings 64 is carried in a mounting block 59 which, together with the plate 63, forms a clamp to secure the gear and clutch structure to a chassis plate 22a which is part of the duplicator 20.

The upper end of the bracket 5| is bifurcated, as indicated by the reference character 65, and engaged with an actuating lever 63 which in turn is keyed to a shaft 6? which forms a part of the paper feed and impression roller mechanism of the duplicator 20. The shaft 61 is ncluded in the paper feed and impression roller mechanism of the duplicator 20, and since the aforesaid mechanism per se does not form a part of the present invention, such mechanism need not be described herein. Sufiice it to say, however, that the shaft 67 and lever 66 thereon are Whenever paper is no longer being fed throug the duplicator 20, the lever 66 is in its uppermost position, as illustrated in Figure 7. Such upward movement of the lever 66 moves the bracket 6| to carry the roller 60 inwardly into the position illustrated in Figure 7, whereupon it engages the sector member 53 to disengage the clutch, as previously described. When the roller 60 is moved inwardly into position to engage the sector member 53, the same may, of course, be in a portion of its path beyond the roller 60 in which case it will complete a revolution to a position of the roller 60, whereupon the sector member 60 will be moved rearwardly to drop the crank 40 which will remain stationary due to the fact that the sector member 53 Will be pushed out of engaging position each time it revolves past the then position of the crank. During such disengagement, the shaft 52 will revolve freely in the crank 40. It will be noted that the leading and trailing edges of the sector member 53 are formed with rearwardly bent tabs 68 whereby to form cam-like surfaces for engaging the roller 60.

Thus, it will be seen that the operation of the slip sheeter attachment 2| illustrated in Figure 1 is fully automatic and operates only when required. Furthermore, due to the pivotal attachment of the connecting rod 4| to the cranks Mi and 42 at the respective ends thereof, the attachment 2| may be lifted to the position shown in Figure 2 without disconnecting the drive mechanism.

An alternate form of drive mechanism is illustrated in Figures 9 through 11. be seen that the attachment 2| is secured to the rear of the duplicator 28 by the same brackets 26, bolts 23, and pins 25, as in the previous embodiment. The linkage connecting the mechanism of the duplicator 20 and the attachment 2| differs in the second embodiment, however. In the modified form, the mechanical motion taken from the duplicator 20 is derived from a reciprocating bell crank 10 which forms part of the duplicator mechanism. The bell crank 10 iS mounted to an internal chassis plate 'll' of the duplicator 20 by a fixed pivot i2. Two connecting rods 13 and M involved in the opera tion of the duplicator 20 are connected to the ends of the crank 10. The operation of the duplicator 2B is such that the crank 10 makes one reciprocal movement for each revolution of the stencil roller.

The above described reciprocal movement of the bell crank 10 is transmitted to the slipsheeter attachment 2| by means of a mechanical linka comprising a clamp 15 secured to the vertical arm of the bell crank Hi, a reciprocating connecting bracket 16, pivotally secured to the clamp i by a pin 11, and a connecting rod 18, pivotally secured to the bracket i6 by a pin 19'. The rearward end of the connecting rod 18 is formed Here it will with a notch which is positioned and adapted to engage the crank pin 8| of the crank 42 of the slip sheeter attachment 2|. The connecting bracket 16 is provided with an'additional pin82 therein, and the pins'ls'and- 82 ride 6 against the sides of an elongated rectangular opening 85 formed in the chassis plate 1|.

Thus it will be seen that, as the bell crank 1|! reciprocates, the connecting bracket 16 is also reciprocated by reason of the connection of the clamp 15, the pins 19 and 82 sliding back and forth in the opening 85. Such movement of the pin 19 is transmitted as reciprocating motion of the connecting rod 18 to the crank 42, thus to operate the slip sheeter attachment 2| in the same manner as that described in connection with the previous embodiment.

It will be noted that the stroke of the rod 18 can be adjusted by moving the clamp 15 upwardly or downwardly on the vertical arm of the reciprocating bell crank 70.

In order now to disengage the connecting rod 18 whenever the duplicating machine 20 is not actually printing sheets, a control lever is fulcrumed on a pivot 9|, supported from the chassis plate 1| by means of a bracket 92, and has its rearward end formed with a shelf-like projection 93, positioned under the connecting rod 18 so that when the rearward end of the lever 90 is raised, the connecting rod 18 is also lifted to disengage the notch 80 from the crank pin 8|, and thereby permit the connecting rod 18 to reciprocate without transmitting its motion to the crank 42, thus leaving the slip sheeter attachment 2| inoperative. When the connecting rod 18 is disengaged in this manner, it continues to reciprocate, sliding back and forth on the shelf-like projection 93, but not operating the crank 42.

In order to automatically disengage the connecting rod 18 in the manner just described, the inner or forward end of the control lever 90 is formed with a lateral projection which is positioned under a shaft 96 in the duplicating machine 2il, which carries the impression roller 91. As has been previously described, the arrangement in the duplicating machine 29 is such that the impression roller 91 of the duplicating machine forms a part of the paper feed mechanism and is raised to press sheets against the stencil only when such sheets are actually being fed through the machine. At all other times, the impression roller 9'! is lowered to hold it out of contact with the stencil.

Thus, it will be seen that the raising and lowering of the impression roller 91 concurrently raises and lowers the inner or forward end of the control lever9ll, producing the opposite movement of its rearward end projection 93. Thus, the connecting rod 18 is automatically disengaged whenever the impression roller 91 is lowered.

The rearward extremity of the connecting rod 18 is formed with a foot-like portion I00 so that if the connecting rod 18 is disengaged, and thereafter lowered when the notch 80 does not lie immediately above the crank pin 8|, the connecting rod 18 will rest with the foot-like portion ii!!! on top of the pin 8|, and upon any reciprocation of the-rod 18, the notch 8|! will fall into engagement with the pin 8|, as aforesaid.

As in the case of the previous embodiment, the pivotal connection of the connecting rod 18 permits the slip sheeter attachment 2| to be tilted upwardly in order to get at the tray 39 without interfering with the connection of the operating mechanism, or requiring the disconnection of any mechanical parts.

While the attachments shown and described herein are fully capable of achieving the objects and providing the advantages hereinbefore stated, it will be realized that they are capable of considerable modification without departure from the spirit of the invention. For this rea-. son, I do not mean to be limited to the forms shown and described, but rather to the scope of the appended claims.
