STENCIL PAD HAND STAMP WITH INK BOTTLE HANDLE Filed Feb. l2, 1962 2 Sheets-Sheet 2 lwuw United States Patent O 3,172,356 STENCIL PAD HAND STAMP WITH INK BOTTLE HANDLE Guy M. Vosburg, Park Ridge, Ill., assignor to Weber Marking Systems, Inc., a corporation of Illinois Filed Feb. 12, 1962, Ser. No. 172,474 12 Claims. (Cl. 101-125) This invention relates generally to hand stamps, and more particularly to hand stamps having ink-replenishing means for the stamp carried in the handle of the stamp.

The primary object of the present invention is to provide a novel construction for a hand stamp or hand printer of the type carrying ink-replenishing means in the handle of the stamp, and further of the type which will print over a certain area through a stencil and which is simple in construction and efficient in operation.

It is a further object to provide novel means in a hand stamp of the foregoing paragraph for uniformly distributing a printing ink from a centrally supplied reservoir in the hand stamp over the entire printing area of the hand stamp.

It is another object to provide a novel reservoir construction in a hand stamp of the foregoing paragraphs which is easily assembled and disassembled and which in the assembled state provides certain passageways for substantially uniformly distributing ink over the entire printing area of the stamp.

It is a further object to provide a novel separator or weir construction cooperating with a reservoir arrangement of the preceding paragraph which will permit the hand stamp to be placed at rest in a tipped position along one longitudinal edge with a minimum possibility of any substantial accumulation of ink in the lower portion of the tipped hand stamp.

It is still another object to provide a novel valve construction in a hand stamp of the type having a handle comprising a compressible container or bottle for sealing the bottle opening in the hand stamp and for providing an ink passageway for delivering a metered amount of ink to the hand stamp.

It is still another object to provide a novel valve construction in a hand stamp of the preceding paragraphs which will permit a substantially larger amount of air to enter the compressible bottle handle when the bottle is released than the amount of ink which is deliverable through the valve to the hand stamp.

Other objects and features of the invention will be apparent upon a perusal of the following specification and drawings, in which:

The present embodiment is the preferred embodiment, but it is to be understood that changes can be made in the present embodiment by one skilled in the art without departing from the spirit and scope of the present invention.

Generally, `the present invention comprises a shallow frame member having a central opening over which a bottle adapter is secured. The bottle adapter carries a unique bottle-sealing and valve arrangement, and a compressible ink bottle handle is threaded into the bottle adapter in cooperation with the bottle-sealing and valve arrangement. An elastomer separator or weir is secured by an adhesive to the underside of the frame. The separator or weir comprises a plurality of ribs partially forming a plurality of passageways. A reservoir plate of a rigid plastic material is positioned against the separator or Weir and is secured in that position by a pair of thumbscrews which are journaled through the frame and threaded into the reservoir plate. The reservoir plate comprises a pair of centrally disposed ribs and a peripheral continuous shoulder on the upper side thereof. The shoulder in cooperation with the elastomer Weir provides a substantially sealed reservoir chamber which is divided into a plurality of ink-conducting passageways by the ribs. The reservoir plate is further provided with a grid of holes formed therethrough at positions between the ribs of the elastomer weir and the ribs of the reservoir plate. The grid of holes permits ink to flow from the reservoir downwardly therethrough to the underside of the reservoir plate. A pad formed of a resilient foamed plastic is positioned against the underside of the reservoir plate and is held in cooperation therewith by a certain cloth material which encloses the pad and is secured to the side walls of the reservoir plate by an adhesive.

The invention is operated by pressing the cloth-covered pad either with a stencil thereon or through a separate stencil to some object upon which the legend of the stencil is desired to be printed. When the ink within the clothcovered pad and the reservoir is substantially depleted, the reservoir and cloth-covered pad are replenished with ink by compressing the plastic bottle forming the handle of the hand stamp. Ink is then forced through a small opening or orice in the valve, through the hole in the frame and a central hole in the Weir, and into the reservoir. The ink is uniformly distributed throughout the entire area of the reservoir by the described ribs of the elastomer Weir and the reservoir plate. From the upper side of the reservoir plate, the ink will pass through the grid of holes in the reservoir plate and thence into the cloth-covered pad. When sufficient ink has been forced from the bottle into the cloth-covered pad to replenish the cloth-covered pad for further printing, the pressure on the plastic bottle is released to permit the compressible bottle to regain its natural shape.

If the bottle is released when the hand stamp is positioned with the bottle above the frame, air Will pass through the cloth-covered pad, the grid of holes in the reservoir plate, through the holes in the elastomer weir and the frame to lift a section of the valve which carries the ink feed orifice and into the bottle. The action of the valve upon the release of the bottle permits a rapid return of the bottle to its natural shape.

If an excessive amount of ink has been permitted to flow into the cloth-covered pad, the excess may be drawn into the bot-tle by positioning the hand stamp with the bottle below the frame, and by then compressing and releasing the bottle to vdraw the excess ink into the bottle.

The valve member cooperates with the bottle and the frame to provide metered ink flow from the bottle through envases the frame and a substantially larger air flow through the frame into the bottle. In addition the valve member provides an ink seal between the bottle and the bottle adapter. When the cloth-covered pad is in a downward position, the weight of the ink in the bottle will maintain the large volume valve section of the valve in the closed position. A partial vacuum in the bottle above the ink and the viscosity of the ink will substantially completely restrict any ink flow through the orifice of the valve. Because of the passageways formed by the ribs of the elastomer weir and the reservoir plate, the hand stamp may be set on one longitudinal edge so that the axes of the ribs are disposed substantially horizontally, without accumulating any substantial amount of ink in the lowest portion of the frame. Instead of flowing downwardly to the lower portion of the frame, the ink will ow from the passageways through the holes of the grid of holes in the various passageways, and from the grid of holes into the cloth-covered pad.

In detail, the present invention comprises a frarne 1@ having downwardly turned side walls 1h01 and end walls b. The frame 1t) may be formed of a material such as stainless steel. The central portion of the frame 19, as may be seen in FIGURE 3, is provided with an opening lc over which a bottle adapter 11 is secured. The bottle adapter 11 is positioned over the hole 16e in the frame 10 and is secured to the frame 1t) by a shoulder 11a which is'turned over on `the underside of the frame 10. The bottle adapter 11 comprises `a recess which is threaded to receive the open end of the bottle 12. The bottom of the recess in the bottle adapter 11 is provided with an opening 11b. The bottle adapter 11 may be cast from a material such as aluminum.

The valve member 13 which is shown in a top plan view in FGURE 7 comprises an outer ring portion 13a and a concentric inner ring portion 13b interconnected by a hinge portion 13e. The valve member 13 may be formed of an elastomer material such as rubber. The valve member 13 is positioned in the bottom of the recess in the bottle adapter 11. The outer ring portion 13a of the valve member 13 has an outer diameter slightly less than the diameter of the recess in the bottle adapter 11 and greater than the outer diameter of the open end of the bottle 12. The inner diameter of the portion 13a of the valve member 13 is smaller than the inner diameter of the open end of the bottle 12 and greater than the diameter of the opening 11b in the bottom of the recess of the bottle adapter 11. The inner ring portion 13b of the valve member 13 has a diameter greater than the diameter of the opening 11b in the bottom of the recess of the bottle adapter 11. The central portion of the inner ring portion 13b of the valve member 13 is provided with an orifice 13d. The diameter of the orice 13d is substantially less than the .diameter of the opening 11b in the bottom of the recess of the bottle adapter 11. From the foregoing it may be f seen that any fluid pressure on the upper side of the portion 13b of the valve member 13 will seal the cooperating surfaces of the portion 13b and the recess of the bottle adapter 11 to prevent any fluid flow about the outer periphery of the portion 13b and through the opening 11b Vin the bottle adapter 11. Thus fluid pressure from within the bottle 12 may only produce the flow of a metered amount of fluid through the orifice 13d of the valve member 13 and thence through the opening 11b of the bottle adapter 11 to the underside of the frame 10, Any fluid `pressures acting upwardly upon the portion 13b of the valve member 13 will cause the portion 13b to be hingedly raised from the bottom wall of the recess in the bottle adapter 11 to permit substantially the entire volume of any fluid at opening 11b to pass in an unrestricted manner Vinto the bottle 12.

The bottle 12 is provided with external threads at the Y open end thereof which permit the open end to be threaded into the recess of the bottle adapter 11 as shown in FIG- URES 3 and 8. The bottle 12 is formed of a relatively soft plastic material which is easily compressible, and which when released, will tend to assume its natural shape. The edge of the open end of the bottle is sealed against the portion 13a of the valve member 13 when the bottle 12 is securely threaded into the bottle adapter 11. Thus no fiuid from the bottle nor from the opening 11b of the bottle adapter 11 may escape from the recess in the bottle adapter 11 and over the outer surface of the bottle 12.

A separator or Weir 15, formed of an elastomer material such as rubber, is cemented to the underside of the frame 1t?. The separator or weir 15, which is shown in plan View in the cross sectional view of FIGURE 5, has a rectangular shape substantially equal in dimension to the surface on the underside of the frame 1f). The center portion of the Weir 15 is provided with a hole 15a. The hole 15a has a diameter greater than the diameter of the opening 11b of the bottle adapter 11. The area of the weir 15 surrounding the opening 15a is of a reduced thickness to permit the reservoir plate 16 to securely engage the surface of the weir 15 without any interference from the shoulder 11a of the bottle adapter 11. The weir 15 is further provided with a plurality of integrally formed ribs 15b. The ribs 15b are positioned in four groups. Each group of two ribs is positioned in one quadrant of the weir 15 with all of the ribs 15b positioned parallel to thelongitudinall axis of the weir 15 and further with the ribs of each group being positioned in a spaced apart re lationship to each other. The ribs 15b are further posi-- tioned `to cooperate in a certain manner with the reservoir plate 16.

The reservoir plate 16, which is shown in the plan view in the cross sectional view of FiGURE 6, is formed 'of a relatively rigid material, and may be formed of a plastic material such as that made under the trade nameof Implex R. The reservoir plate 16 is substantially rectangular in shape with the length and width thereof being slightly smaller than the length `and width of the'- weir 15. The upper side of the reservoir plate 16 is'y formed with an integral shoulder 16a positioned about the periphery thereof. The upper side of the shoulder 16o is provided with a small bead 16h extending continuously thereabout. The upper side of the reservoir plate 16 is further provided with two integrally formed ribs 16C which are positioned in an end-to-end spaced apart relationship on the longitudinal center line of the reservoir plate 16. A boss 16d is formed as a part of each of the ribs 16C intermediate the ends thereof and each of the bosses 16d is provided with a threaded hole therethrough. The threaded holes in the bosses 16d are further so positioned that when the upper side of the reservoir plate 16 is positioned in contact with the weir 15 those threaded holes are axially aligned with holes through the weir 15 and the frame 10. Thumbscrews 17 are inserted through those holes and threaded into the holes in the bosses 16d to draw the shoulder 16a and the ribs 16e of the reservoir plate into rm fluid-sealing contact with the surface of the Weir 15. The bead 16b serves to aid in producing a good fluid seal between the Weir 15 and the reservoir plate 16. The heights of the ribs 15b of the Weir 1S and the ribs 16C and the shoulder 16a of the reservoir plate 16 are substantially equal so that as the ribs 16e of the reservoir plate engage the Weir 15,` the ribs 15b of the Weir 15 will engage the upper surface 'of the reservoir plate 16 in a firm fluid-sealing relationship therewith. A plurality of spaced apart passageways positioned parallel to the longitudinal axis of the frame- 10 are thus effectively defined. As may be seen in FIG- URE 5, the shoulder 16a of the reservoir plate 16 occupies an area about the periphery of the Weir 15, and the outer ends of the ribs 15b and 16C are spaced a short distancefrom the shoulder 16a. The inner ends of the ribs 15b and 16C terminate on transverse lines which are spaced apart a distance slightly greater than the diameter of the hole 15a in the Weir 15. The area of the reservoir plate 16 Within the shoulder 16a is provided with a grid of uniformly spaced apart holes 16e which extend through the reservoir plate to the underside thereof as may be seen in FIGURE 4. The grid of holes 16e are positioned on each side of and also between the inner ends 'of the ribs b of the Weir 15 and the ribs 16e of the reservoir plate 16. Thus it may be seen that in the assembled condition of the reservoir plate 16 and the frame 1i), the holes 16e in the reservoir plate 16 will provide for a uniform distribution of ink over substantially the entire underside of the reservoir plate 16. By virtue of the central location of the opening 11b in the bottle adapter 11 and the above described pattern of the ribs 15b and 16C of the Weir 15 and reservoir plate 16, respectively, ink delivered through the opening 11b of the bottle adapter 11 will flow toward each longitudinal side of the reservoir plate 16 and through the passageways defined by the ribs 15b and 16C to the ends of the reservoir plate 16. This pattern of ink flow Will cause substantially a uniform dispersion of ink through the holes 16e of the reservoir plate 16. An important advantage of the above described construction is apparent when consideration is given to a temporary placement of the frame 1) in a substantially vertical plane with the ribs 15b and 16e extending horizontally such as when in the use of the invention the hand stamp is set with one longitudinal edge of frame l@ and the upper end of the bottle 12 on a table or other horizontal surface. In this position of the invention it can be seen that any ink within the contines of the weir 15 `and the reservoir plate 16 will tend to be retained Within the passageways dened by the ribs 15b and 1de rather than `accumulating in the lower portion of the reservoir plate 16. This retention of the ink in the deiined passageways is of important practical advantage since the use of the invention contemplates repeated printing with the hand stamp commingled with short periods of standing of the invention on one of its longitudinal edges.

The invention further comprises a pad 19 and a piece of cloth 20. The pad 19 is rectangular in shape and is formed of a porous resilient material such as a foamed polyurethane plastic material. The resiliency of the pad 19 provides for efrective printing through a stencil upon somewhat irregular objects such as cardboard cartons, and the porosity of the pad 19 provides for a uniform distribution of ink from the upper to the lower surface thereof. The pad 19 is placed in contact with the underside of the reservoir plate 16 and is maintained in contact therewith by the piece of cloth 26. The piece of cloth 29 is sufficiently large to enclose the pad 19 and extend over the side Walls of the reservoir plate 16 to which side walls the edge portions of the cloth 20 are secured by an adhesive. The cloth 20 may be formed of a material such as linen and `further may be treated to insure a constant flat surface and to prevent any Wrinkling of a stencil that may be used therewith.

From the foregoing description it is evident that the invention is used in combination with a stencil to produce an application of ink from the pad 19 through the cloth 20 and the stencil and upon some object. The construction of the Weir 15 and reservoir plate 16 will provide Ifor a uniform distribution of ink over the entire area 'of the pad 19, with the bottle 12, bottle adapter 11, and the described valve assembly providing a simple and effective arrangement for supplying ink to the chamber defined by the Weir 15 and the reservoir plate 16. It is further evident from the foregoing description that the invention may easily be separated into its component parts for cleaning thereof.
