The present Invention relates to a machine
for decorating or marking cylindrical surfaces
oi' articles with lettering or other desired de
signs, by .a screen process in which the ink or
coloring material is applied and forced through
a screen by means of a squeegee.. In the form
of the invention herein illustrated, the machine
_ is designed for decorating the surfaces of round
bottles or other articles of similar shape.
An object of the invention is to provide a ma
chine which operates automatically to decorate
'
of the frame and providing supports for an end
less chain conveyor I2. The conveyor runs over
driving sprocket wheels I3 mounted on a shaft
I4 journaled `:In the frame'znembers 4II adjacent
one- end thereof and similar sprocket wheels_
carried on a shaft I5 at the opposite end of the
frame. The shaft I 5 is journaled in bearing
_blocks I6 adjustable in _guides I‘I 'by means of
adjusting screws IB for taking up slack and reg
ulating the tension o17 the conveyor.

Article holding devices are arranged at equal
bottles or the like which are fed in continuous _ intervals along the conveyor, each said device
succœsionthrough the machine as by means 'of comprising a supporting frame or carrier 20 ex
an endless‘conveyor.- A further object of the
15 invention is to provide simple and practical ap

The machine is mounted on a frame compris- '
ing standards In to the -upper ends o1' whichare
`secured frame members II extending lengthwise
. izone the head 3l runs beneath and in contact ~
with a stationary bar 38 which frictionally en
gages'said head and thereby imparts rotation tothe chuck. 'I'he bar 38 is carried on a p_air of 50
_ rock arms 39 mounted on a rock shaft 40 jour
naled in the upper end of a‘frame comprising
upright arms 4I. Said frame is mounted on a.
horizontal shaft 42 carried’on Va Vbracket'. 43 on `
the conveyor frame I I. The frame 4I is adapt- 'ß
2,121,491
2
ed to be swung in and out about the axis vof the
shaft I2 for adjusting the bar 38 along the head
'31. Such adjustment is effected by means of anY
adjusting screw Il which may have a threaded
_connection with.a head 45 on said frame, theinner end of the screw rod 44 being journaled
in the frame II. The bar 38 is yieldingly held
chain 1I and sprocket wheel 12 on the conveyor
drive shaft I4. Motion is transmitted from the
shaft Il to the squeegee chain 50 through inter
meshing beveled gears 13 and 14 (Fig. 2). ÀThe
gear 1I is carried on a shaft journaled in a bear
ing 15, said shaft connected through differential
gearing 16 to drive a shaft 11 (Figs. 2 and 3).
A beveled-gear 18 on the shaft 11 drives a gear
against the head 31 my means of springs 46
which bear upwardly against rock arms 41
10 which, as shown, are extensions of the arms 39.
19 on the lower end of one of the sprocket shafts
52. The squeegee conveyor_ is driven continu 10
The squeegee operating mechanism comprises
an endless chain conveyor or carrier 50 which
runs on sprockets 5I, the latter being mounted
on vertical spindles 52 journaled in standards 53
15 carried by an angle bar 54 supported on the
frame I0. Below the carrier 50 is a stationary
ink channel or trough 55 which may be sup
ported by means of bracket arms 56 attached to
» the standards 53. This channel as viewed in
20 plan (Fig. 2) comprises semi-circular ends con
centric with the shafts 52 and intermediate
straight side portions, one of which is over and
parallel with the conveyor I2 and spaced there
ously through the gearing just described, which
gearing is arranged and proportioned to drive the
two conveyors I2 and 50 in synchronism and
with the squeegees travelingthrough the stencil
ing zone at the same speed as the bottles or work
pieces therebeneath. The _squeegees are also
spaced apart the same distance `as the carriers
20 for the work-pieces so that as a work-piece or
bottle rolls along the screen a squeegee is di
rectly thereover. The differential gearing 16 in 20
cludes adjusting means by which the conveyor
5u may be adjusted relative- to the conveyor I2
for the purpose of bringing the squeegees into
from.y This latter straight section extends - exact register with the work-pieces.
The adjusting means for the conveyor 50 (see 25
25 through the stenciling zone and the bottom Figs. 2 and 2-A) includes a hand-wheel 16ß
thereof is cut away to provide an opening 51 to
expose a stencil screen 53 carried by a screen
frame 59 removably attached, as by 'means of
clamping bars 5U, Ato the bottom of the inking
30 trough so that the screen covers the opening
51.` Said screen may be of conventional con-`
struction comprising silk or other porous -fabric,
with an overlying sheet or coating of impervious
material in which is stenciled or cui; the letter
ing or other design with which the bottles are
35
to be decorated.
'
lThe bottles 23 are caused to travel in succes
sion beneath and in rolling contact with the
screen, as more fully hereinafter set forth, and
the marking or coloring material, such as a semi
40 liquid ink or pigment carried within the inking
trough 55. is applied through the stenciled screen
to the surface of each bottle as it rolls along the
screen. The coloring material is forced through
the screen by means of vsqueegees 6I arranged
45 to travel through the stenciling zone in contact
with the screen and directly over. the bottles 23
as‘the latter pass -through the stenciling zone in
rolling contact with the under surface vof the
on a worm shaft carrying a worm 1Gb which runs
in mesh with a gear segment 16° connected to
the housing 16d in which is journaled the pinion
16° of the differential gearing. By rotation of 30
the hand-wheel 16" the housing 16d and the gear
16¢.are adjusted about the axis of the shaft ’51.
This causes a rotation of the pinion about its
own axis and a relative rotation of the gears
which mesh therewith, thereby adjusting the po
sition of the squeegee conveyor 50 relative to the
conveyor I2.
'
` The engagement of the work-piece 23 with the
screen as it passes therebeneath tends to impart
rotation to the work-piece, or, in other words, 40
roll it along the screen. 'I‘his rolling movement
is rendered more positive by meansx of the 'fric
tional driving engagement of the bar 38 with the>
head 31. By adjusting the bar 38 in the manner
heretofore described, the speed of rotation im 45
parted thereby to the chuck may be adjusted to
correspond with the diameter of the bottle or
other cylindrical surface which is being deco
rated, so' that there will be no slipping between

TheV operation will be understood from the
arms 32 fixed to a rock shaft~53 journaled'in a
bearing block 64. The blocks 64 form links of
the- chain conveyor 5l. The squeegees bear
downward against -the flat floor of the channel
v55 55 and against the screenwith a yielding pres
sure which may be adjusted by means of weights
05 mounted on rock arms attached to the squee
gee shafts, the weights being adjustable length
wise of the rock arms.

The carriers 20 forQthe work-pieces are ar
ranged to be supportedcn rails 66 during their
travel through the decorating or stenciling zone.
The shafts 2| carry rolls 01 and 38 to» run on
foregoing description, but may be summarized as
follows: The bottle conveyor I2'and the squeegee
conveyor 50 are driven continuously and in syn
chronism bythe motor 10 and interconnected 55
gearing. As each work-holder 20 approaches the
stenciling zone the operator places a bottle 23
thereon. For this purpose the block 3_3 carrying
the chuck may be pulled lengthwise of the car
rier 20 against the tension of a spring 33* which 60
then serves to return the chuck and hold it in
gripping engagement with the bottle. The_bot
ties pass in continuous succession through the
stenciling zone and during their passage there
said rails, the rolls I8 being formedwith a flange A through are held in rolling contact with the sta
_tionary stencil screen 5l.. As each bottle rolls
along the screen a squeegee 5I traveling with the
thereby positively guiding the 'frame 20 and pre
65 to run in-a corresponding groove in the rails 66,
venting movement thereof in a direction trans
verse to the line of -travel. The rails serve also
,to lift the work-piece 'u and noia it positively
in contact with the screexras ~it travels there
A
beneath.
. The conveyor I2 is‘driven'continuously by an
electric motor. 1I (Fig. l) which hasa driving
75 --connection with the conveyor through a sprocket
bottle and bearing against thescreen'operates in _
the usual manner to apply the pigment or color
ing material through the screen onto the surface 70
of the bottle. ~ 'I'he bottles after passing through.. .
