OIL EXPRESSING BOX PACKAGE SHAPING MACHINE.

SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 320,848, dated June 23, 1885.

(No model.)

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, RODNEY S. CATHOART of Palestine, Texas, have made a new and useful Improvement in Oil Expressing Box Package Shaping Machines, of which the following is a full, clear, and exact description.

In the present machine a series of pairs of feed and pressure rolls is employed. The

' rolls of the various pairs are variously spaced this specification, exhibit the most desirable mode of carrying out the improvement.

Figure l is a side elevation of the machine. Fig. 2 is a plan. Fig. 3 is a horizontal section on the line 3 3 of Fig. 1. Fig. 4 is avertieal longitudinal section upon an enlarged scale on the line 4 4 of Fig. 2; and Fig. 5 is a vertical transverse section on the line 5 5 of Fig. 2.

The same letters of reference denote the same parts.

The series may consist of any suitable num ber. Three pairs of rolls are generally sufficient, and butthree are shown in the drawings. A A rcpres ant the first pair, B B represent the second pair, and O O repreient the third pair. The rolls of the firsttwo pairs are preferably fluted, and (as shown in plan and side View) are preferably convex. Of the last pair the rolls are straight; the upper one, C, is smooth, and the lower one, 0, slightly fluted. The rolls are arranged transversely in the machine, which also is provided with mechanism for driving the rolls, and also with two tables, one, D, of which supports the package as it is entered between the first pair of rolls, and the other, E, receives the package from the last pair of rolls. The lower rolls,

A B O, are j ournaled in fixed bearings a b c, and so as to bring the tops of those rolls at a level, or thereabout,with the tables D E. The bearings a I) c of the upper rolls, A B O, are vertically adjustable in the uprights F F,

vided, and they, by means of the nuts G, are adapted to be held at different levels, as shown. The springs H provide for a certain amount of elasticity in the bearings, so that the upper rollers can yield in an upward direction when an undue pressure is upon them.

Power is imparted to the machine by means of the pulley I, Fig. 2, which is attached to the shaft J. taehed to the shaft J. The sprocket-wheel Lis attached to the shaft M. The shaft of the rolls A B O A B O are each provided with a sproeket-wheel, N. By means of the chain belt 0, which passes around all of the sprocket-wheels K L N, as represented in Fig. l, the motion of the pulley I and shaft J is communicated to the rolls A A, B B, O O. The material-cotton seed, forinstanee-is generally inclosed in a woolen bag, and before being passed through the machine the package is more or. less rounded in form.

The rolls A A operate both to feed the package into the machine and to partially flatten it. The rolls B B feed the package arther along and further flatten it, and by means of the rolls 0 O the shaping of the package into asquare bundle of uniform thickness of the proper dimensions for the oil-expressing box is completed and the package delivered onto the table E.

I claim- 1. An oil expressing box package shaping machine, having a series of pairs of rolls, the rolls ofthe various pairs being variously spaced apart, substantially as and for the purpose described.

2. The combination of the rolls A A, B B, O O, relatively arranged as shown and dewith which the frame of the machine is pro- 5 The sproeket-wheel K is atscribed, and the tables D E, substantially as RODNEY S. (JA'lllCA RT.
