My invention relates to’punch presses and has replace the various cams Without disturbing any
particular reference to presses adapted to form other parts of the press, having at the saine time
various articles from sheet metal.
a number of slidesreciprocating in direction of
The object of my invention is to provide a
punch press which can be used to produce sev
eral individual parts and to assemble them into
a more or less complete article during one cycle
of operations of the press. For this purpose I
provide means to support several dies producing
corresponding number of pieces during each
stroke of the ram of the press, there being prefer
ably several strokes of the ram during one revo
lution of the main flywheel of the press. I also
provide supplementary reciprocating members,
also operated by the main flywheel, likethe ram,
which can be provided with means to support
various tools for performing additional oper
ations on the pieces produced by the dies, also
for assembling these pieces together, including
certain parts delivered to the press from the out
side sources.
Another object of my invention is to provide
means for stopping andA starting the driving.
mechanism within several cycles `ora. fraction’ ofi
a cycle, the stopping means being manually con
trolled, including a remote electrical control. For
this purpose I provide a clutch, preferably of a
jaw type, between the driving flywheel and the
driving shaft in` the press, and a cam-shaped
bushing on the driving shaft, which is under ac
tion of springs tending to press it against the
clutch thereby engaging the latter. The cam` is
moved by a pin in the frame, which can be
moved in and out of engagement with the cam.
B-y releasing the pin, the driving shaft can be
made to stop at a desired point in the operating
cycle of the press, for instance. when the“ ram
, and the reciprocating members are moved> away'
from the dies.
Another object of my invention is to provide
means to- individually feed stock to the different
dies and tools, also to feed separately prepared
parts to- be assembled withv the articles made in
the dies. I also provide means tor adjust the rate
of feed simultaneously for dilferent dies and sepa
rately for each die. For this purpose I provide>
adjustable operating levers and replaceable or
changeable gears- for the feed mechanism.
the operating zone, and which can be arranged
to perform Various additional operations on the 5 '
articles being produced by means of various tools
mounted on the inner portions of these' slides.
Another object of my invention is to provide a
number of cam members on the end of each shaft,
each cam member operating a separate slide, the 10
slides operated by one shaft being arranged in
sliding relation to each other. The cams are pref
erably made of different diameters, the inner
cams being smaller, so that the corresponding
slides can be placed under the slides from the 15
outer cams.
Still another object of my invention is to pro
vide additional fixtures or tools for the slides in
the form of turret heads and ratchet wheels, so
that each slide can be made to perform several 20
different successive operations during its several
strokes during one cycle.
With my punch press it is possible therefore to
perform o-n a single machine various operations
which would otherwise require the use of several
separate presses, drop hammers, assembling ma
chines, and additional manual operations.. It is
also possible to perform these various operations
in a single automatic cycle, thereby obtaining a
finished and assembled product directly from the 30
machine without any intermediate manual or
other operations.

My punch press consists of a` frame | with a
bolster 2 which may be formed integrally with the
frame as shown. A ram 3 is slidably supported
on gibs 4 and has a face plate 5 operating dies
6, 1 supported on the face of the bolster 2 in a
usual manner. The gibs and the sides of the ram
are made with a slight taper so as to provide a
closer fit when the ram is operating the dies than
when it is moved away from them. This insures
more accurate ñt of the dies and conserves the
cutting edges. The gibs are shown located hori
Zonta-ily, although, of course, they can be made
inclined with a correspondingly inclined bolster.
In a particular embodiment shown in Fig. 1, the
25 ram is reciprocated against the bolster by a toggle
mechanism consisting of levers 8 and 9 pivotally
connected at I8 and ll with the ram and a
toggle block l2. The latter is held by tie rods
|3 and |4, the latter being cast in the frame |.
The lever 8 is pivoted at I5 to one end of a
toggle rod IG, the other end of which is journaled
on an eccentric portion l1 of a shaft I8. The
latter has a gear |9 in mesh with a gear 20 on a
main driving shaft 2l.
IThe gear 2li is shown of
a larger diameter than the gear I9 so that the ram
makes more than one stroke for each revolution
of the main shaft. A gear 22 on a shaft 23 is con
nected by a belt or chain 24 with a hopper or
feeder' 25 for small parts which are delivered
through a chute 25 to dies for assembling with
the stampings. These parts are also shown in
Fig. 4, the gear 22 being shown in dotted lines
and provided with a pulley 21 for the belt. A fly
wheel 28 freely rotates on the outer extension of
the driving shaft 2| and can be connected by a
belt with a suitable source of power (not shown)
for its operation. The flywheel has one or more
teeth 29 which can engage corresponding slots
3Q in a sliding jaw clutch 3|.
The ciutch 3l is keyed to the shaft 2| so that it
connects the flywheel with the shaft when the
tooth 29 engages one of the slots 38. The clutch
is pressed against the iiywheel by springs 32. It
has an enlarged cylindrical portion 33 with a
cani-shaped edge 54 engaged by a pin 35 slidably
supported in a bearing 38 in the frame. The pin
is pressed by a spring 31 against the clutch 3|.
When the clutch is engaged, it rotates with the
shaft 2|, and the pin 85 follows the curvature of
60 the cam-edge 34 until a projecting portion of the
cam engages the pin thereby forcing the clutch
back and releasing the tooth 29. The position of
the pin between its collars 43 thereby retaining
the pin in an inoperative position. To stop the
press, the lever 45 is turned back thereby releas
ing the pin, which snaps in its position at the
cam and stops the press as soon as the hump of C21
the cam engages the pin. The lever 45 has an
extension 41 connected with a plunger 43 of a
magnet 49. This magnet is controlled by push
buttons at convenient places and can be used
for stopping the press from various remote points.
It cannot be used to start the press, however,
and serves principally as a safety device and to
insure quick stopping if there is any fault inv
the press operations.
A modified form of drive for the ram is shown
in Figs. 2 and 4.
a ram 52.
The frame 58 has gibs 5| for
A stub shaft 53 is journaled in a
clevis 54 at the end of the ram, the shaft having
a hole for the threaded end of a driving rod 55
held by nuts 56. The other end of the rod 55
has a bearing for an eccentric portion of a shaft
51 connected by a gear 58 with the driving gear 28.
The bolster 2 which supports dies 6 and 1
shown in Fig. 1, also supports feed slides 59 on
rails 68, there being individual slides for each die.
Two slides are shown but there may be a larger
number of them arranged side by side, all op
erated by individual levers 6|, 62, connected with
the slides by links 53. The levers 5| and 82 are
gears 64, 85 rotatively mounted ;,
between collars 66’ on a shaft 68 fitted by its ends
in the sides of a. frame extension 81. The gears
64 and 65 are in mesh with gears 83 and S9 keyed
on a shaft 1|) journaled in the sides of the ex
tension 61 and having a lever 1| on one end. l
The lever 1| has a slot 12 for a bolt 13 connect
ing it to one end of a link 14 the other end of
which is connected by a bolt 15 passing through
a slot 16 with a lever 11. This lever is pivoted
at 18 in a bracket 85 and has a sliding block 19 40
with a pin 30 engaging a cam slot 8| in a cam
cylinder 82 mounted on the end of a shaft 51.
By changing the position of the bolts 'f3 and 15 in
the levers 1| and 11 it is possible to change the
rate of feed for stock 84, usually in the form of
strips of metal.
The feed can be also changed
individually for each slide 69 by changing the
respective gears 64 and 58 or 65 and 89. The
cam slot 8| may be made for different length of
feed stroke, and it can be made to produce one 50
or more feed strokes during one revolution of the
shaft 33.
The shaft 51 has a second cani cylinder 86 with
a cam slot 81 engaging a pin 88 on the end of a
slide 89. The other end of the slide has a notch
9|) or similar arrangement for holding different
tools used for supplementary operations on parts
stamped out by the dies from the stock 34. The
end of the shaft 51 has a bevel gear 9| in mesh
with gears 92 and 93 preferably at right angles
stop the machin-e. The pin has also collars 43
to the gear 9|. The gears 9|, 92, and 93 are lo
cated in the middle portion of the press near the
dies and substantially at the sides of an opening
94 for scrap falling from the dies. The gears 92
and 93 are mounted on the ends of shafts 95, 95
extending outside of the frame and having on
their outer exposed ends cam cylinders 98 and
91. The cylinders have cam grooves 98 and 99
for rollers |00 and 59| on the ends of slides |íl2
and |03. The slides |82 are placed under the
which can be engaged by a slot 44 in a hand lever
slides |03, which is made possible by having the
45 pivotally supported at 46 on the frame. In
order to release the clutch for continuous opera
tion of the press, the pedal 4l is depressed and
the lever 45 turned by hand until its slot engages
cam grooves 98 of a smaller diameter than the
grooves 99, as may be seen more clearly in Fig.
3. The outer end of the inner slide |02 has an
the hump on the cam is arranged so that the press
stops when the ram is moved away from the
bolster to facilitate work with the dies. The pin
35 has an extension 38 pivoted at 39 to a bar 40
having a pedal 4! at one end and being pivoted
at the other end on a pivot 42. By stepping on
the bar, the pin 35 is withdrawn and cannot then

By combining operations by the tools `on the
slides with the operations performed by the main
dies, it is possible to produce more or less com
plicated articles entirely automatically. One ex~
ample of such articles is shown in Figs. 5 and 6
representing a belt buckle ||0 with a claspy | | l.
Another example is shown in Fig. 7 representing
a stamped head of a caster with a disc | l 2 wedged
between the ends of the head | I3 and provided
with a central bearing H4. The method of mak
ing this article is shown in Figs..8 to 13 incl. For
this work a turret head I | 4’ is employed rotative
1y mounted on a pin | | 5 fitted in the end portion
of the slide |02. The head ||4 works against a
die IIB by its tools ||1, IIB, and H9. A ratchet

Another important advantage of my press is
that it can be easily changed from a toggle ram
to an eccentric ram, the rest of the machine «in
cluding its drive rem-aining unchanged. This is
important when it is desired occasionally> to
change the type of work on the press: for light
work, where a low power expenditure is preferred,
the eccentric drive will be used; and for a heavy 25
work it may be changed over to the toggle drive.
Another important advantage resides in the
construction of my clutch. The cam 34 can be
provided with as many projections to be oper
ated by the pin 35, as there are strokes of the 30
ram in one revolution of the driving shaft, and
the projections can be located so that the clutch Y
becomes disengaged before the stroke of the ram,
thereby stopping the machine in time to prevent
theoperation of the ram when the operation is I
no longer wanted or is dangerous to the Work.
This feature of the clutch is especially useful in
connection with the electromagneticV control of
the pin 35. The magnet can be controlled by push
buttons placed conveniently in various places 40
around the machine where the operator may need
them for stopping the ram in time to prevent its
