The present invention has for its’object a ma
chine that cuts, embosses and prints the sheets
to the table 5 in any known manner, the edges
of this plate or of the knives being straight or
of paper or cardboard used in photography in a
single operation.
After a sheet has been cut out by these knives,
embossed between the two plates 1 and 8 and
then printed, it will be in the position shown at
15 on Figure 1. On releasing the control lever
6, the latter will rise with the table 5 under the
influence of the springs l6 and H. The support
ing plate i2 of the sheet will not follow this move 10
ment since it will be held by its control lever ll
under the action of the spring [8, this control
lever being hinged, by means of an independent
According to the invention the manipulation
of a single lever causes the consecutive opera
tion of members which hold the sheet to be
worked in position, out, print and eject the sheet.
The annexed drawings show diagrammatically
10 by way of non-restrictive example one form of
carrying out the invention.
Figure 1 is a cross section of the machine along
the line a,—b Figure 2, illustrating the different
members in the act of embossing-
Figure 2 is a plan of Figure. 1 showing the re
spective arrangements of these members for a
rectangular cutting out.
Figure 3 is an end view in partial section of
the machine showing the operation of the print
ing device and Figure 4 shows a sheet being
placed in position.
Hitherto there have been used separate out
ting-out machines and embossing machines, but
the entire cutting-out, embossing and printing
25 has never been carried out in a single operation.
The machine according to the present inven
tion may be operated by hand, by pedal, under
the action of a motor or in any other known
manner, and carries out successively these vary
ing operations.
Such a machine is composed of a frame I
which carries the supports 2 of a shaft 3 and on
this shaft are disposed the supports 4 of the
table 5 of the machine, actuated by the lever 6.
The frame I carries a stamping and/or emboss
ing plate ‘I, the counter-plate 8 of which is ?xed
on the table 5. The stamping or embossing plate
"d comprises recesses 9 permitting‘ the passage
of sheet ejectors 29 and a printing apparatus,
40 whilst the counter-plate 8 comprises a recess I0
permitting the passage of the control lever II
of a grid I2 for the clamping and placing in po
sition of the sheet. The edges of the stamping
plate '1 form a counter-blade for the cutting
45 out process, this plate being further provided
With ribs. The counter-plate 8 is provided with
indentations corresponding to the ribs on plate
‘I for the purpose of embossing a square, a rec
tangle, an oval or a frame of any other shape.
The knives l3 and M are made in several parts
if it is a question of cutting out a polygon; the
transverse knives I3 and longitudinal knives I4
acting successively by cutting one side at a time
or two sides simultaneously. The knives l3 and
55 I4 may also be constituted by a single plate ?xed
socket IS on the common shaft 3, thus prevent
ing the knives from carrying with them the sheet’
l5 in their movement upward.
When the table 5 has moved through an angle '
of about 30° in such manner that the knives have
risen above the sheet, a cross-piece 20 provided
With stops 2| and 22 and formed integral with
the table, will approach one or more ?at springs
23, ?xed on the socket I9 of the lever pressing
on the sheet and will engage these springs. If
the upward movement of the table is continued,
the stops on the cross-piece 26 will contact with 25
the springs 23 and thus act on the lever clamp
ing the sheet and the latter will be liberated
when the table has attained an angle of about
The claws 24 and 25 integral with the sup
porting sockets of the table, will contact with
the plate 25 of the discharge mechanism and by
driving this plate, they will act on the lever 21
hinged about an axis 28 and this lever 21 will
drive, through its extremity, the lever 29 hinged 35
about a ?xed point 30. Due to the movement of
the lever 29 the projection 3! of this lever passes
through the recess 9 under the sheet, thus eject
ing the latter from its embossing plate 1.
Before the upward movement of the table is 40
fully completed, the stops 24 will have passed
over the spring 26 and the levers 21 and 29 will
again take up their initial position under the
action of gravity or any other resetting method.
At this moment, therefore, the stamping plate
does not carry a sheet and is ready for the in
sertion of a fresh sheet to be dealt with.
One or more levers 29 for releasing the sheet
may be provided, as also stops, not shown, which
Will maintain the raised table at the opening 50
position, under the action of the springs I6
and 57.
After a fresh sheet has been deposited, it will
be suf?cient to bear on the control lever ll of
the plate for clamping the sheet, to overcome the 55
resistance of the spring 23, causing this to pass
over the cross-piece 20, which will allow the
spring [8 to become operative and thus clamp
the fresh sheet in position. The tension of the
spring l8 will be increased as the table descends.
As shown by Figure 4, the guiding plate is com
posed of longitudinal and transverse bars of
lengths corresponding to the size of an image or
frame, a table pivoted to said frame, a paper em
bossing die mounted 'on said frame and co-oper
ating with corresponding depressions in the table,
cutters angularly secured to the table and adapt
