12 Claims. (Cl. 53-31) The invention relates to coin handling apparatus.

One object of the invention is to provide a coin handling apparatus by which coins of any given denomination are deposited in a storage hopper, automatically fed therefrom to a coin counting machine in accordance with its requirements, automatically counted and in predetermined numbers delivered to a coin packaging apparatus preferably controlled by said counting machine and packaged thereby in wrappers automatically cut and formed from a roll of paper by mechanism controlled by said counting machine. Thus all the operator has to do is to supply the paper in roll form, deposit the coins in the storage hopper and start the apparatus in motion.

A further object of the invention is to provide a coin handling apparatus in which coins of different denominations may be expeditiously handled and in this connection to provide a coin packaging mechanism for each coin denomination movable into operative association with a Single coin counting mechanism and to provide wrapper forming mechanism adjustable to provide wrappers in sizes appropriate for the different denominations.

41 is a vertical sectional view through the coin and wrapper receiving tube, showing the crimpers operating on the wrapper.

This apparatus includes wrapper blank forming mechanism, packaging mechanism, coin counter mechanism, means for selectively feeding coins from said coin counter to the packaging mechanism, and means for automatically feeding coins to said coin counter.

The wrapper blank forming mechanism The paper 40 for the different denominations of coins is wound in rolls on hollow spools 41, any one of which is adapted to be centered on a rotatable support 42 by ing the support 42 so that the center of any one of the strips will be aligned with the center of the feed roller and the vertically disposed packaging rollers hereinafter referred to.

The means for vertically adjusting the support 42 and consequently the roll of paper mounted thereon is shown in Figs. 1, 5, 7, and 8. Referring to these figures, the apparatus includes a base plate 4-4, and a horizontally disposed shelf plate 45 supported from said base plate by uprights 46. The support 42 includes a centrally disposed pivot shaft 47 suitably journalled in the plate 45 and bearing at its lower end on a vertically adjustable shaft 48 which is loosely slidably mounted at its lower end in the transverse portion of a yoke 49 whose legs are secured by screws 50 to the bottom of the plate 45. The shaft 48 has a threaded portion 51 mounted in a threaded collar 52 having an arm 53 carrying a pin 54 on which rollers 55 are mounted in spaced relation. An initial vertical adjustment between the shafts 47 and 48 can be made by turning the shaft 43 from its lower slotted end in the collar 52. The rollers 55 bear upon spaced wedge-shaped bars 56 suitably connected together at their ends to form a Wedge member slidably mounted on a pin 4-9, carried by the yoke 49, and connected at one end to a rack bar 57 which is slidably mounted and guided and held in operative relation to a rotatably adjustable gear 58, Fig. 5, by a member 59 suitably anchored to the shelf 45. Tuning of the gear 58 by turning of a control shaft 66 on which it is mounted moves the rack bar 57 and consequently the wedge bars 56 move the shaft 48 and consequently the shaft 47 up or down to adjust the vertical position of the support 42 relative to the shelf 45 so as to bring the center of the paper Web into alignment with the center of a feed roll 61, Figs. 1, 4 and 5, from which the paper is fed to the wrapper cutting mechanism. An oscillatory resilient ended brake member 62 bears on the web, as shown in Figs. 1 and 4, and resilient brake shoes 63 bear on the paper web as it passes over the feed roll 61. The feed roll 61 is mounted on a vertically disposed shaft 64 journalled in the shelf 45 and an upper shelf 65 and in a bottom bearing member 66 supported from the shelf 45 by frame members 67 and carrying a hand wheel or adjusting knob 68 and a gear 69 meshing with a large gear 70, Figs. 1, and 6.

As the length of the wrappers varies with the size or denomination of coins to be wrapped, the feed wheel 61 is given a variable feed, to vary the length of the wrapper, by variable stroke mechanism associated with the large gear 70. Referring to Figs. 5 and 6, the numeral 71 designates a main drive shaft for the wrapper forming mechanism and also the packaging mechanism upon which a grooved cam or eccentric 72 is mounted and within which cam a roller 73, intermediatel-y carried by an oscillatory lever 74, runs whereby rotation of said eccentric oscillates said lever. Lever 74 is pivotally mounted at 75 on the frame of the machine and at its outer end is operatively connected by a link 76 to a slotted lever 77 freely pivotally mounted on a support shaft 78 for the gear 70. The outer end of lever 77 has a pair of feed pawls 79 and St pivotally mounted thereon and urged by springs 81 in engagement with the teeth of the gear '70 so that as the lever 77 is swung toward the right as viewed in Fig. 6, the gear 70 will be given a clockwise rotary movement, the extent of which is controlled by the adjustment of the roller end 82 of the link 76 working in the slot 83 of lever 77. For accomplishing this adjustment a gear 84' on the control shaft 60 meshes with a rack 85 operatively connected by a link 86 with the end 82 of link 76, said rack being guided by a fixed guide bracket 87 and a slotted fixed guide bar 88 in which the pivot shaft or bolt 89 connecting the rack 85 with the link 86 works. Thus by shifting the end 82 of the link 76 farther away from the center of the gear 70 or shaft 78 a longer stroke of 4 the pawls 79 and will be obtained and hence a greater length of the web will be fed by the feed roll 61 from the roll of paper on the spool 41.

Since the stroke adjusting gear 84 and the vertical positioning adjustment gear 58 are both mounted on the control shaft 60, turning of this shaft by a crank arm 90, see Fig. 4, determines both adjustments, said crank arm carrying a pointer cooperating with index buttons 91 designated by the letters D, P, N, Q and H standing for dimes, pennies, nickles, quarters and half dollars, respectively, see Figs. 1, 2, and 4.

The paper web as it passes the feeding roll 61 is preferably creased along a center line so as to form a stiffening rib 61 in it and for this purpose the roll 61 is provided with a centrally disposed annular triangular groove 92 with which a conically formed creasing wheel 93 cooperates, said wheel being rotatably mounted on a swinging arm 94 mounted on a vertical shaft 95 and urged toward the wheel 6.1 by a torsion spring 96, see Figs. 1, 2, and 4.

The creased Web is advanced by the feed roll 61 past the cutting mechanism by the amount of feed suited to the coins to be wrapped to cut the web into a wrapper blank W, as shown in Figs. 11 and 12. The cutting mechanism is shown in Figs. 2, 9, and 10 and includes a V-shaped knife 97 cooperating with V-notched knife plate or die 98 to cut the web into wrappers W, each having a pointed front end 99 and a notched rear end 100. The cutters 97 and 98 are mounted for lengthwise adjustment on fixed supports so as to position them to cut the web to a length determined by the setting of the amount of feed of the feed wheel 61. The knife 97 is mounted on a frame 191 which includes spaced lower tubular bracket members 102 slidably mounted on a fixed horizontally disposed lower guide bar 103 and a grooved bracket member 104 slidably mounted on a fixed horizon-tally disposed upper guide bar 105. A rack 106 is secured to the bracket members 102 and meshes with a gear 107 on a vertically disposed shaft 108 journalled in bearings in the plate 45 and carrying a gear 109 meshing with the gear 58 mounted on the control shaft 60, the ratio of the above gearing being such that the knives are moved lengthwise proportionately to the lengthwise feed of the paper web so that this web will be cut into blanks whose lengths are equal to the feed of the web by the feeding roll 61.

For reciprocating the knives or cutters 9-7 and 98 relative to each other the frame 161 carries vertically spaced horizontally disposed arms 114 secured at one end directly thereto, see Figs. 9 and 10. The knife or die 98 has spaced arms 112 provided with collars or bosses 113 fixed to the rods 111 which slide in the bearing arms 114 and the frame 191. An oscillatory shaft 115 journalled in fixed bearings 116 and 1-17 and of. the polygonal form shown in cross section in Fig. 10 between said bearings and providing a lengthwise extending crank arm 118 has an operating crank arm 119 secured to it at one end. The arm 118 is slidably movable in a slot 120 in a part 121 projecting from the knife 98 so that said arm is effective for reciprocating said knife in any position of its lengthwise adjustment. The crank arm 119 is intermittently operated in synchronism with the web feed mechanism by a link 1Z2 operatively conmeeting it with a crank arm 123 on a shaft 124 journalled in bearings 124' and carrying a cam operated crank arm 125 provided with a roller 126. Roller 126 is engaged by a cam projection 127 on a gear 123 fixed to the shaft 71 as said gear revolves in the direction of the arrow shown in Fig. 9 to raise said arm 125 and oscillate said shaft 124 and lower the arm 123 which through the link 122 swings the arm 119 in a clockwise direction and causes the crank 118 to act on part 121 of the knife 98 to push it outwardly toward the left, as shown in Fig. 10, so that the web of paper between the cutters 97 and 93 is cut. Shortly after this cut is made, a cam projection
