Abstract
A labeling machine having primary and secondary label feed assemblies provided in the present labeler with a common source of intermittent power for feeding labels that can be selected to actuate either assembly from a reciprocating power driven member through over-running clutches to give a positive label feeding movement without and to prevent backlash to the label pack supporting and feeding elements. The assemblies may operate independently of each other or/and in an interdependent manner to maintain the top or operating label pickup level of the label pack at a substantially constant operating level. With the present label feed mechanism the operating of the labeler may be continuous without the necessity to stop the labeling operation when introducing a fresh pack of labels to the machine. The primary label pack feeding mechanism stops automatically upon the exhaustion of the labels of the pack. The secondary label pack feeding mechanism also stops automatically upon reaching a predetermined feeding height rather than to a point of complete exhaustion of its respective labels or label pack to prevent breakdown clashing between the primary and secondard feeding mechanisms.

Wesley Everett; George L. Brehm [57] ABSTRACT A labeling machine having primary and secondary label feed assemblies provided in the present labeler with a common source of intermittent power for feeding labels that can be selected to actuate either assembly from a reciprocating power driven member through over-running clutches to give a positive label feeding movement without and to prevent backlash to the label pack supporting and feeding elements. The assemblies may operate independently of each other or/and in an interdependent manner to maintain the top or operating label pickup level of the label pack at 1 a substantially constant operating level. With the present label feed mechanism the operating of the labeler may be continuous without the necessity to stop the labeling operation when introducing a fresh pack of labels to the machine. The primary label pack feeding mechanism stops automatically upon the exhaustion of the labels of the pack. The secondary label pack feeding mechanism also stops automatically upon reaching a predetermined feeding height rather than to a point of complete exhaustion of its respective labels or label pack to prevent breakdown clashing between the primary and secondard feeding mechanisms.
