Y., a corporation of Delaware. Application September 29, 1936, Serial No. 103,172 2 Claims. My invention relates to improvements in cap form waxing devices for use in a paper bottle capping machine, and the object of the inven tion is to devise simple means for automatically receiving the cap forms from the main feeding and printing mechanism of the capping machine, for feeding the received cap forms through a wax bath, and for transferring the waxed cap forms from the bath into receiving mechanism 10 for conveying them to the forming mechanism performing the next operation of the capping machine, and for ensuring the time of immer sion in a wax bath maintained at constant level and even temperature is suflicient for the proper 15 sterilization of the cap‘forms prior to contact with the bottle. ' Fig. 1 is a side elevation of the waxing device showing its position in relation to the printing mechanism and forming dies. Fig. 2 is a plan view of the parts illustrated 20 in Fig. 1, the tank covers and conveyor chains of the immersion tank being removed. ' Fig. 3 is an elevation of the right hand end of the waxing mechanism, the forming dies and 25 mechanism for transferring the cap forms from y the waxing device to the forming dies being re moved.
