merit of the wheel slide starts in the reverse di
35 rect‘ion, thus providing a variable which serves to
cause the grinding wheel to rock in a different
path on its stroke in opposite directions. In order
to eliminate this difficulty, a series of backlash
eliminators have been provided to take up the
40 backlash between the worm |5| and the cam ||||
and to eliminate any backlash in the gear train
52, 53, 55, 55, thus eliminating lost motion so that
when the table || is moved- in either direction, an
identical rocking motion is transmitted to the
grinding wheel 25 when the roll I5 and table ||are reciprocated in either direction.
En order to eliminate the backlash between the
rack 45 and the gear 55, a suitable mechanism is
provided. The gear `55 is keyed by a key |25 to
a sleeve |2| which is rotatably supported on a
reduced portion |22 of the shaft 5|. The sleeve
|2| is rotatably journaled in bearings |23 and |24
which are fixed to the base I5 so as to provide
a ñxed rotary support for the sleeve |2|. The
sleeve |2| is provided with a plurality of slots |25
at its left-hand end, as shown in Fig. 5, and the
outer surface of this end of the sleeve is tapered
to mate with an internal conical surface |25
within a rotatable sleeve |21 mounted on a fur
ther reduced end portion |25 of the shaft 5|. The
sleeve |21 is slidably keyed to the shaft |25 by a
key |29. The sleeve |21, when moved toward the
right as viewed in Fig. 5, contracts the split end
of the sleeve | 2| and clamps it securely to the
65 reduced portion |22 of the shaft 5|.
To readily adjust the sleeve |21, a nut |35 is
rotatably mounted on a reduced portion v|3| of
the shaft 5| and is held in place-thereon by means
of thrust washer |32. Thrust washer |33 is inter
posed between the inner surface of-the nut |35
and the shoulder on the reduced portion |3| of
the shaft 5|. A pair of nuts |34 and |35 serve
to lock the nut in adjusted position on the por
tion |3| of the shaft 5| so that it is free to rotate
75 thereon but has no endwise movement relative
face |41 to slide on the surface |45 so that any
lost motion between the gear 55 and the rack 45
is taken up by the rotation of the gear |45 due 35
to 'the vangular thrust of the lugs |45 and |41.
The collar |52 is provided with a pin | 55 which fits
loosely within an aperture or hole |51 in the hub
of the gear |45, so that the gear |45 can rotate
relative to the collar |52. By varying the tension 40
of the springs |55, the opposed thrust of the two
gears 55 and 45 may be varied so as to eliminate
any lost motion and to exert the desired pressure
of the gears |45 and 55 on the rack 45 so that
the shaft 5| is rotated in unison with the rack
when the rack moves in either direction to rotate
the gear 55.
.A similar backlash eliminating device is pro
vided between the worm wheel |53 and the cam
|l5. As illustrated in Fig. 6, the worm gear |53 50
is formed in two halves. The part |53 is connected
by a key |55 to the shaft |54. The half |5| of
the worm gear |53 is rotatably mounted on the
shaft |54 and is provided with an outwardly pro
jecting lug |52 which engages a correspondingly
shaped lug |53 which is formed as an integral
part of the collar |54 which is slidably keyed to
the shaft |54 by a key |55. The collar |54 is
urged toward the right, as viewed in Fig. 6, by a
plurality of springs |55 which are contained with 60
in apertures |51 in the collar |54 and which bear
against an adjustable collar |55. The collar |55
may be adjusted longitudinally on the shaft |54 by
the adjusting collars les and |10. A pin nl is
ilxed to the collar |55 and slides within .an en
larged aperture or hole |12 within the collar |54
so that the collar |54 can rotate relative to the
collar |55. By adjusting the position of the col
lar |55, the tension of the springs |55 may be
adjusted, so that the lugs |52 and |53 cause the
gear section |5| to be rotated relative to the worm
gear part |53 which is keyed to the shaft so as
to eliminate any backlash between the worm
wheel |53 and the worm |5|.
A further backlash eliminating device is pro 75
4
2,132,941
vided in the gear train 92, 93 to eliminate any
backlash or wear betweenA said gears. As illus
trated, the gear 92 is formed as a two-part gear.
Gear 92 is keyed to the Vshaft 9| by a key |80. A
second part of the gear 92 is formed as an annu
lar ring |8| having teeth cut therein to mate
with the teeth of the gear 9|. The ring gear |8|
fits on a hub portion |82 oi' the gear 92 and may
be locked thereto by clamping screws Ii83 and
10 |84 which pass through elongated slots |85 and
|86 in the gear ring |8| and are screw threaded
into the gear 92.
In order to eliminate the backlash between the
gears 92 and 93, it is necessary to adjust the ring
15 gear | 8| relative to the gear 92. To facilitate ad
justment of the gear | 8| relative to the gear 92,
' the gear ring |8| is provided with a pair of dia
metrically opposed conical surfaces |81 and |88
which are countersunk into the outer surface of
20 the gear |8|. A pair of- screws |89 and |90 pass
through the conical apertures |81 and |88 and are
screwthreaded into the gear 92. Each of the
screws> |89 and |90 is provided with a conical sur
face | 9| which is shaped so that an _element of
25 its surface coincides with an element of the coni
cal counterbored surface |81 or |88. To adjust
the gear ring |8| relative to the gear 92,> the
screws |83 and |84 are loosened and then by
slacking -off on the screw |90 and tightening the
30 screw | 89, the ring gear | 8| may be moved in a
counterclockwise direction relative to the gear 92
to eliminate the backlash between the gears.
When the required adjustment has been made,
the ring gear | 8| and the gear 92 are clamped
35 together by tightening the screws |83 and |84.
The tumbler gear 95 may be adjusted to mesh
to a greater or lesser extent with the gear 96 by
swinging the bracket 98 so that the backlash be-tween these two gears may be eliminated.
It will> thus be seen that a driving mechanism
40
has been provided which Iserves to rock the grind
ing wheel 20 through a predetermined path. when
the table | | is reciprocated longitudinally and
moves in either direction to produce a predeter
mined concave or convex crown upon the roll be
ing ground, depending upon the nature of the
cam | I0 which ismounted on the machine.
It may be desirable during the truing operation
to disconnect the crowning attachment so that
the wheel 20 may be trued while it remains sta
tionary, that is with the rocking movement there
of stopped. This is preferably accomplished by
unlocking the sleeve I2| from the shaft 9|. It is
desirable that the crowning attachment be dis
55 connectedv in such a way that after a wheel tru
ing operation, the crowning attachment may be
picked up when the table is in a predetermined
I position so that the grinding operation on the roll
being ground may be continued and the desired
60 crown produced after the truing operation has
~ been completed.
In the preferred construction,
an index finger 200 is fixed to the table || and is
arranged to be aligned with a fixed point 20| pro
jecting from the base |0. An indexing finger 202
similarly projects from the base |0 and is ar
ranged to serve as an'index for a graduated scale
203 arranged on the periphery of the sleeve |21.
To disconnect the crowning attachment for tru
ing so that the crowning movement of the wheel
may be picked up at the same point after truing,
the table || is traversed until the index finger 200
is aligned with the fixed point 20| on the base |0.
The reading of the scale 203 opposite the ñnger
202 is then noted and the sleeve |21 then with
75 drawn to disconnect the sleeve I 2| to stop the
rocking movement of the grinding wheel during
the truing operation. After the grinding wheel
20 has been trued to the required extent, the
table is again moved so that the index finger 200
is aligned with the ñxed index point 20| on the
base |0 and a wrenchis applied to the projection
|40 of the shaft 9| to rotate the shaft 9| and the
sleeve |21 until the predetermined graduation on
the scale 203 coincides with the index iinger 202 .
at which point the sleeve |30 is rotated to move 10
the sleeve |21 toward the right, as viewed in Fig.
5, to clamp sleeve |2| to the shaft 9| and thereby
start the crowning> movement of the grinding
wheel in identically the same position as prior to
the truing operation.
The operation of this machine will be readily
apparent from the foregoing disclosure. The
table dogs 6| and 62 are adjusted to the desired
position to permit a reciprocation of the roll 50
to. pass the face to be ground across the periphery 20
of the grinding wheel- 20. The change gear
mechanism on the rear of the machine is then ad
justed to the proper gear ratio for producing a
crown of the predetermined extent.' A roll to be
ground is then placed either on centers on the
machine or,'as above stated, on journai°rests (not 25
shown). The roll is then rotated and the recip
rocation of the table || started and the grinding
wheel 20 is fed into grinding relation with the roll
|_5 by manipulation of the manually operable feed 30
wheel 36.
The grinding operation may then be
continued until the roll has been ground to a
predetermined crown and finished.
It will thus be seen that there has been pro
vided by this invention apparatus in which the
various objects hereinabove set forth together
with many thoroughly practical advantages are
successfully achieved. As many possible embodi
ments may be made of the above invention and
as many changes might be made in the embodi 40
ment above set forth, it is to be understood that
all matter hereinbefore set forth or shown in the
accompanying drawings is to be interpreted as il
lustrative and not in a limiting sense.
