More particularly, the invention relates to apparatus for intermittently applying deposits of adhesive in the form of transversely spaced-apart, longitudinally-extending, sets of lines of predetermined length in which the sets of lines are longitudinally spaced-apart at predetermined intervals on the face of the moving web of material.

Heretofore, various mechanisms have been commercially proposed for intermittently applying deposits of adhesive onto a moving web of material. These include the use of an adhesive conduit for conveying adhesive under pressure from a source to a device for extruding the adhesive onto a moving web. The adhesive conduit included a pneumatically-operated valve therein for opening and closing the passageway through the conduit for intermittently applying the adhesive which is passed therethrough under pressure. This type of adhesive application mechanism has suffered from many problems including the inability to properly meter predetermined amounts of adhesive to compensate for variations in speed of the moving web while still applying deposits of adhesive of a predetermined length and pattern onto a moving web of varying speed. This is particularly true when it is considered that the opening and closing of an air valve in a pressurized adhesive conduit will allow the passing therethrough of an amount of adhesive and the extruding therefrom of this amount of adhesive in relation to the amount of pressure on the adhesive. This is a very inaccurate control of the amount of adhesive deposited by such a system and has caused many problems in the use thereof.

Additionally, it has been previously commercially proposed to utilize printing roll adhesive applicator systems in which a rotary printing roll would pass through a supply of adhesive and print the adhesive onto the the surface of a moving roll. Due to the inherent tackiness, etc., of adhesive, these printing roll systems have also caused many problems and resulted in a non-uniform, very messy application of adhesive onto a moving web.

The above problems of previously proposed systems are particularly acute when intermittently applying deposits of adhesive between components of a disposable diaper in a disposable diaper fabricating machine, such as disclosed in copending application, being filed concurrently herewith, Ser. No. 491,793, filed July 25, 1974 and assigned to the assignee of the present inventron.

SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION Accordingly, it is the object of this invention to provide an improved apparatus for intermittently applying deposits of adhesive at predetermined locations on a face of a moving web which overcomes the prior problems and disadvantages of previously proposed mechanisms.

It is a further more specific object of this invention to provide apparatus for intermittently applying deposits of adhesive in the form of transversely spaced-apart,

longitudinally-extending, sets of lines of predetermined length in which the sets of lines are longitudinally- 1 extending, sets of lines of predetermined length in supply of adhesive under pressure and for conveying the adhesive to said extruding head means. Selectively operable, metering pump means is positioned in the adhesive conduit means for selectively pumping metered amounts of adhesive from the supply means through the conduit means to the extruding head means. A coritrol and drive means is connected with the pump means for selectively operating the pump means intermittently for predetermined time periods for timed, intermittent, metered pumping of adhesive to said extruding head means for timed, intermittent application of the predetermined am'otmts of adhesive onto the face of the moving web at predetermined intervals. Further details of the above described control and drive means will be given in the specific description to follow.

Preferably, the apparatus also includes valve means positioned in the adhesive conduit means between the pump means and the extruding head means for being opened to allow the passage of adhesive therethrough during operation of the metering pump means and for closing to stop the flow of adhesive through the conduit means when the pump control and drive means is inoperable, and control means connected with the adhesive valve means and with the pump control and drive means for closing the valve means upon the pump control and drive means becoming inoperable.

Preferably, the adhesive extruding head means comprising a generally flat plate member having a forward, straight, longitudinally-extending edge positioned adjacent and transversely across the face of the moving web. The plate member is connected with the adhesive conduit means and includes internally thereof a plurality of interconnected channels leading from the connection with the conduit means and a plurality of extruding port means spaced along the length of the forward edge and connected with the channels for receiving adhesive therefrom and extruding adhesive onto the face of the moving web in transversely spaced-apart, longitudinally-extending sets of lines of predetermined length and in which the setsare longitudinally spacedapart at predetermined intervals.

DESCRIPTION OF PREFERRED EMBODIMENT Referring now to the drawings, there is shown in FIG. 1 the apparatus of this invention generally indicated at 10, for intermittently applying deposits of adhesive A onto a face of a moving web of material M. The illustration of the apparatus 10 in FIG. 1 is purposely schematic for a better understanding of the apparatus of this invention. This apparatus 10 is adapted to intermittently apply deposits of adhesive A onto a face of any moving web of material M and for purposes of illustration in the drawings, there are schematically shown a take-up and a let-off and are labled as such. These take-up and let-off devices may be any suitable mechanisms for ,causing movement of the web of material and may be in the form of mechanisms shown in the aforesaid copending application Ser. No. 491,793, assigned to the assignee of the present invention, which discloses an apparatus for successively forming disposable'diapers wherein. the adhesive applying apparatus 10 of this invention may be utilized for applying deposits of adhesive between the components of the disposable diaper. Further reference for a suitable environment .for the adhesive applying apparatus 10 of this invention may be had to the above-mentioned copending application. I i

The adhesive applying apparatus 10 includes an adhesive extruding head 12, preferablyin the form of a generally flat plate having a forward, straight, longitudinally-extending edge positioned adjacent and transversely across the face of the moving web of material M. The adhesive extruding head 12 includes internally thereof a plurality thereof a plurality of interconnected channels 14 for receiving and conveying adhesive A therethrough, and a plurality of extruding ports 15 spaced along the length of the forward edge and connected with the channels 14 for receiving adhesive ,A therefrom and for extruding the adhesive A onto the Connected, with the channels 14 of the extruding head 12 is anadhesive conduit 17 which is connected at one end withthe channels 14 and at the other end with any suitable source of pressurized adhesive A for receiving adhesive A therein from the source and conveying the adhesive therethrough to the extruding head 12 and the internal channels14 thereof for application to the moving web of material M out ofthe ports 15.

Positioned in the adhesive conduit 17 is a selectively operable, metering pump 20' for selectively pumping metered amounts of adhesive A from the adhesive source or supply through theconduit to the extruding head 12. This metering pump 20 is a driven pump which may be preferably a driven, gear type, metering pump comprising a housing 21, a passageway 22 extending therethrough from the entrance side to the exit side of the adhesive conduit 17 and being respectively connected thereto for passage of the adhesive A through the passageway 22 in the pump 20. Positioned within the housing 21 and within a widened portion of the passage 22 is a pair of intermeshing pumping and metering gears 24, 25 which interlock with each other and force the adhesive therethrough and pump the adhesive when rotated, in a manner well understood by those with ordinary skill in the art. One of these gears 24 is selectively driven for rotation of both of the gears 24, 25 by means of astub shaft 26 extending outwardly from the gear 24 out of the housing 21. and having a sprocket gear 28 connected with the other end thereof for being driven in a manner to be described below. Thus, when the gears 24, 25 of the pump 20 are ro tated, a pumping action on the adhesive A will be performed and when rotation of these gears 24, 25 is stopped, the flow of adhesive through the passageway 22 of the pump 20 and thus through the adhesive conduit 17 will be shut off.

For selectively operating the pump 20 intermittently for predetermined time periods, control and drive mechanisms are connected with the pump 20. These 'control and drive mechanisms comprise a motor 30 which may be any suitable type of electrically-operated motor or otherwise. A first mechanical drive is connected with and driven by a motor and, asillustrated in FIG. 1, isein the form of an endless chain 32 received around and driven by a first sprocket gear 33 carried on the end of a shaft 34 from a gear box device 35 which is in ,turn connected with and driven by the motor 30. The other end of the chain 32 is received by a second sprocket 36 carried on the end of a stub shaft 37 rotatably mounted on one side ofa cam-gear housing 38. Internally of the housing 38 there is provided a generally circular, rotary cam 40 carried on the other end of stub shaft 37 for being rotated thereby. The cam 40 includes a cam groove 41 therein of a predetermined profile for reception of a cam follower 42.

The cam follower 42 is carried by a slide member 43 mounted on a pair of slide rods 44, 45 carried by the housing 38. Thus, as the cam 40 is rotated by the chain and sprocket drive 32, 33, 36 from the motor 30, the follower 42 and slide 43 will be linearly reciprocated back and forth along the slide rods 44, 45 determined by the profile of the cam groove 41 acting on the cam follower 42. v

Connected with the slide member 43 is a rack member 48 of a rack and pinion gear device. The rack 48 engages with a pinion 49 which is carried on the end of a stub shaft 50 mounted for rotation in the other side of housing 38. Thus, as the rack member 48 is linearly reciprocated back and forth with the slide 43, the pinion 49 will be rotated thereby in reciprocating, back clutch members 54, 55 when rotated in the other direction, i.e." to"the"left as viewed in FIG. 5. Thus, when the rack 48 and slide 43 are reciprocated in one direction under the action of cam follower 42 in cam groove 41 ofcam 40, a drive will be imparted to the stub shaft 50 sprocket 62 on one end ofa shaft 63 which. carries a gear 64 on the other end thereof in meshing relationship with the gear 28 for driving of the pump 20.

It may be seen, that as the motor 30 rotates the first mechanical drive 32, 33, 36, the cam 40 will be rotated for reciprocating the rack 48 back andiforth in a linear reciprocating movement for rotating the pinion 49 and intermittently driving the second mechanical drive 60,

pending upon the profile of the cam groove 41 of the cam 40. The profile of the cam groove 41 of the cam 40 may be so arranged to provide for intermittent driving of the pump 20 for predetermined time periods, as desired, for the application of sets of lines of adhesive A onto the web of moving material of a predetermined length and spacing.

Normally, the metering pump 20 also acts as a valve for shutting off the flow of adhesive A through the conduit 17. However, as a safety measure and particularly for use when the entire adhesive applying apparatus is shut off'including the motor 30, a; valve 70 is positioned in the adhesive conduit 17 between thepump and the extruding head 12 for being operated to allow the passage of adhesive therethroughduringo'peration of the pump 20 and for closing to, stop the flowofadhesive A therethrough and through theadhesive conduit 17 when the pump control and drive mechanisms including the motor 30 are inoperable. This valve 70 prevents the leakage of adhesive A outeof; the extruding head 12 when the adhesive applyingmechanism 10 is shut off.

For controlling the adhesive valve 70,.there are provided control mechanisms including an electrical circuit, broadly indicated at 72 in FIG. 1, connected with the motor 30 and including a solenoid-actuated, normally-closed switch 73 which when in the closed positionthereof completes an electrical circuit through the circuit means 72 to a; solenoid 74 ofa solenoidactuated valve 75. The solenoid actuated valve 75 is a two-position valve and is connected to a fluid conduit 76 leading from a suitable source of fluid under pressure, which is schematically shown and labled as such in FIG. 1. The solenoid-actuated, two-position valve 75 is also connected with fluid conduits 77 and 78 leading therefrom to each side of the adhesive valve 70.- Prefer; ably, the adhesive valve 70 is fluid-operated, pneumatic or hydraulic, valve and if fluid under pressure in introduced thereto from one of the conduits 77 or 78, the

adhesive valve 70 will open, and if introduced from the will close. 1 1 Accordingly, if the motor 30 of the pump control and drive mechanisms is operating, the solenoid-operated switch 73 will be closed to complete the electrical circuit through the circuit 72 to the solenoid 74 of th e" valve 75 toposition the valve for the flow offluid under pressure through one of the conduits 77, 78 to maintain the fluid-operated, adhesive valve open. However, if the pump control and drive mechanisms. including the motor 30 are shut off by opening of a switch in the circuit 72 the solenoid-actuatedswitch 73 will be opened to break the circuit to the solenoid 74 thus reversing the flow of fluid under pressurethrough the conduits 77, 78 and introduce fluid to the other side of the fluid-operated, adhesive valve 70 to-close, the valve 70 and prevent the flow of adhesive through the adhesive conduit 17.

It may be clearly seen, that the apparatus 10 of this invention has provided an improved mechanism l0-for applying deposits of adhesive A in predetermined locations on a face of a moving web of material M and,

more particularly, for intermittently applying the deposits of adhesive Ain'the formof transversely spacedapart,longitudinally extending, sets of lines of predetermined length in which the sets of lines are longitudinally spaced-apart at predetermined intervals on the face of the moving web of material M.
