18 Claims.
This inventionrelates to an improvement in
a confection `machine of the general type il
lustrated and described in the patent to Robb
No. 1,960,456, `dated May 29, 1934, and more par
ticularlyV to a-iilling unit usable therein.

The iilling `unit IIJ Vcomprises a tank || pivot
ally suspended from a shaft |2 over a mold con
veyorhere shown as similar to» thatA disclosed in
Copending applicationSerial No. 54,166, filed De
cember 23, 1935. The mold conveyor comprises
a pair of chains i5 which pass around a plurality
of sprockets l5 vand |'| and between which are
carried a plurality of mold carriers I8. The
shaft l2 and sprockets I6 and I1 are suitably
supported in a frame I9.
The tank || is sus
pended from the shaft I2 by end plates 2|) and
is oscillated thereon by means of a stub shaft 2|
As here
. Mounted in recesses `46 in the bottom plate
38 are filling cylinders 41.
These cylinders are
equal in number to the molds of the mold car
riers and are arranged in a row extending across i I
the machine parallel to the front wall 40. Each
cylinder registers with a mold of each mold car
rier as indicated on Fig. 5. vThe upper end of
each cylinder enters a recess 48 in a plate„49
projecting from the front angle bar 36 (see Fig.
7). The recess.“ is anv annular enlargement of
an opening 50 which preferably is of the same
internal dimension as the interior of the cyl
inder. .In assembling _the cylinders in the tank
the lower ends are seated in the recesses ‘46 of ‘f
the bottom plate and then, the upper ends being
inserted in the recesses 48 of the plate 49, the
plates are fixed to the bar` 36 to secure the cyl
inders in place. Pairs of dowels5| are here pro
videdto position the plates initially and the cyl
inders are clamped in' position by the bolts `52.
The plates thus hold the cylinders in place and
seat them firmly in the recesses so that any entry
to the cylinders of the material in the hopper
through the recesses 46 is prevented. Recipro 55

end of the plunger. The plungers are recipro
cated by arms 58 fixed» to a rock shaft 59 sup
ported in the end walls 20. The free end of each
arm 58 carries a cross pin 60. The ends of the
pins project at opposite sides of the arm and the
upper ends of the bars 56 are slipped over the
The nozzles 14 are formed to prevent dripping
or dribbling, see particularly Figs. 6 and 8. The
passage 9| through the nozzle is tapered down
projecting ends of the pins and suitably secured
in place as by cotter pins 6|. One end of the rock
shaft 59 projects beyond the tank II and on it is
mounted an arm 62.
The shaft 59 is actuated
by the shaft |2 through the arm 62, an adjust
able link 63, an adjustable block 64 andI a disk
15 65 fixed upon the end of the shaft I2 (see Fig.
7). The block 64 is supported in a pocket 66
extending diametrically across one face of the
disk 65 and its position in the pocket may be
adjusted by means of a screw 61 to regulate the
20 amount of movement imparted to the shaft 59.
The shaft movement may be further regulated
by means of the adjustable link 63.
The bottom plate 38 has in its under face a
recess 10 closed by a plate 1I which extends across
25 the mouth of the recess and is secured in anysuit
able manner to the under face of the plate. The
recess 10 is connected by passages 12 to the hopper
39 and by passages 13 to the interior of the filling
cylinders 41. Each passage 12 is in longitudinal
30 alignment with a passage 13.
Nozzles 14 are car
ried by the plate 1| in vertical alignment with the
passages 13 and lead from the recess 10.
Mount
ed to reciprocate longitudinally in the recess 10 is
a slide valve 15 having a plurality of passages 16
35 therethrough and a plurality of transversely ex
tending recesses 11 in the upper face thereof. The
recesses 11 are of such length that, as shown in
Fig. 3, they will connect the passages 12 and 13 in
one position of the slide. The passages 16 and
40 recesses 11 are alternately arranged longitudinally
of the valve 15 and are spaced apart the same
distances as are the passages 12 or 13. When the
valve 15 is at one limit of its movement, the right
in Fig. 6, each passage 16 registers with and con
45 nects a passage 13 and the nozzle 14 in alignment
therewith (Fig. 2). When the valve 15.is at the
other limit of its movement, the left in Fig. 6,
each recess 11 registers with and connects a pas
sage 12 and the aligned passage 13 (Fig. 3).
Reciprocation is imparted to the slide valve 15
50
by bell crank levers 80 pivotally mounted on ears
8| projecting from the outer faces of the end
plates 20. The levers 80 are actuated by cams 82
on the shaft I2 through rollers 83 at the upper
55 ends of blocks 84 slidable in pockets 85 formed on
the end plates and adjustable links 86 pivotally
secured at their ends to the levers 80 and the
blocks 85.
The cams 82 are identical in form the
periphery of each being formed by two arcuate
60 sections 81 and 88 of substantially the same length
connected at the ends by reverse curved sections
89 (see Fig. 2). As indicated in the drawings the
cams are so positioned on the shaft that when one
roller 83 is in contact with the section 81 of one
65 cam the other roller 83 is in contact with the sec
tion 88 of the other cam and that both rollers 83
contact simultaneously with the reversed curved
sections 89 of the cams. The lever at the left
(Fig. 5) moves the valve to the position shown in
70 Figs. 2 and 6 and the lever at the right (Fig. 5)
moves the valve to the position shown in Fig. 3.
Both levers are at all times in contact with the
valve and coact to control its movement. The
travel of the valve 15 in both directions is limited
75 by suitable stop means as for example by pins 90,
wardly, the mouth being slightly larger than the
outlet of the valve passage 16 and the outlet being
slightly smaller. The outer surface of the nozzle
is faced back to provide a thin blade-like annular
flange 92 defining the outlet.
The edge of the 10
iiange is sharp and when, as will be described
later, the fiow through the nozzles is cut off, the
passages are substantially cleared by gravity and
any material left forms a bubble which remains
intact and is not shaken off by the movement of 15
the valve.
As further protection for the material in the
hopper 39 the top of the tank may be closed by a
cover |00 made up of a stationary section I 0| and
a movable section |02 hinged to the stationary 20
section. The stationary section comprises a plate
|03 having slots |04 which receive the bars 56, and
bolts 52 and a cross strap |05, the ends |06 of
which are upturned and provided with notches
|01. Bolts |08 projecting from bosses |09 on the 25
end plates 20 of the tank enter the notches |01
when the cover is mounted on the tank.
The
slotted portions of the plate |03 rest on the plates
49 and the section I0| is secured in place by the
heads of the bolts 52. A crossbar I I0 fixed to the 30
plate |03 below the strap |05 rests on the upper
edges of the end walls 4|.
The movable section |02 is joined to the sta
tionary section |0I by a plurality of leaf hinges
I II and comprises a plate | I2 reinforced at its 35
side edges by fianges I I3. The under face of the
plate II2 is suitably insulated as by cork I I4 en
cased between plates ||5 to further prevent the
loss of moisture by evaporation and to prevent
the formation of condensation on the movable 40
section of the cover.
The operation of the filling machine is in unison
with the travel of the mold conveyor, the shaft I2
which, as pointed out above, controls the move
ment of the various movable elements, being 45
driven from the shaft 25.
Referring to Fig. 1, the
cylinders 41 are filled as the tank swings to the
left and are discharged to fill the molds as the
tank swings to the right. The distance traveled
by the tank is preferably regulated so that as 50
shown in Fig. 9 the center line of a row of nozzles
is slightly in advance of the center line of a row
of mold carriers at the limit of the swing desig
nated by 95 where the cylinder filling stops and
the mold filling starts; is in register therewith at 55
the middle of either operation and is slightly be
hind the center line of the mold carriers at the
limit designated by 96 where the cylinder filling
starts and the mold filling stops.
Assuming that a row of nozzles is at the posi 60
tion 95 on Fig. 9 the disk 65 on the shaft I2 starts
to depress the pistons 55 through the link 63, arm
62, shaft 59, arms 58 and bars 56, and at the same
time the cams 82 on the shaft I2 coact to shift the
slide valve 15 to the right into the position shown 65
in Fig. 6.
The movement imparted by the disk
65 to the pistons 55 continues until the row of
nozzles takes the position 96, being slower at the
beginning and end than elsewhere. rI'he cams 82,
however, are so formed that as the position 95 is 70
reached the slide valve is opened quickly by mov
ing the valve to the right and as the position 96
is reached is quickly closed by moving the valve
to the left. The valve is at rest during the travel
of the tank in either direction. The movements 75
.2,127,850
`of the valve are caused by thev contact of there
verse curved sections of thecamswith the rollers
83. ‘ During the travel of the -tankin either direc
tion the rollers 83 are in‘ contact r-with the arcu
ate sections :and no movement'` of the> valve is set
`up thereby.
`
As the tank swings tothe left from the` -posi
tion 96 the pistons 55 are raised first slowly,
then more rapidly and nnally `:slowly again.
10 `The slideivalve 15 is, aspointed out above.
closed and in the position shown in` Fig. 3
so that the materialin the hopper flows through
the passages 'l1 into the ‘filling cylinders-41 and
fills the spaces left below the pistons 55 as they
15 are raised. `As the tank swings to the right the
pistons are lowered and since the valve is‘open
the contents thereof are discharged into the
molds with which they at that time travel in
register.
i 20
The position indicated by full lines in Fig. 1
and shown on a larger scale in Figs. 2, 3, 6 and 7
isxthat taken by the tank and its associated ele
ments when the center line of the row of nozzles
is in register with the center line of a `row of
.25 mold carriers as shown in Fig. 9.
At that‘position the pistons 55 are halfway
between the upper and lower limits of their travel
whether the nozzles be traveling ‘to the `left or
to the right, and the slide valve is atv rest being,
however, in the position shown in Figs. 2 and 6
if the nozzles are traveling to the right and in
the position shown in` Fig. 3 if the nozzles are
traveling to the left.
While one embodiment of this invention has
35 been shown and described it` will be understood
that the invention is not limited thereto and
‘that other embodiments may be made without
departing from the spirit and scope of the in
vention as set forth in the followingclaims.
