(Cl. 22-94)
This invention relates to an apparatus for die
illustrated in the drawings there is shown in
casting articles having internal threads therein.
More particularly stated, the invention relates
Fig. l a machine comprising a base I Il _on which
is supported a die Il, the details of which are
to an apparatus for die casting and vejecting
illustrated in Figs. 2 and 3, the die being closed
5 from the die a group of articles, such as nuts,
internally threaded caps, or internally threaded
expanding elements for expansion anchors.
When such articles are to be cast, the mold has
» positioned therein a threaded core pin and the
10 metal is forced under pressure into the mold
and around the pin. In the methods heretofore
used, after the casting has set, the pin is threaded
out of the article and the article is ejected by an
ejector pin or other 'suitable means which is
15 usually moved through the core and _forces the
cast article from the die.
'I’his invention has for its salient object to
provide a simple and practical apparatus for
by a cover I2. The molten metal for the die is 5
forced under pressure from a receptacle or pot
I3 through a conduit i4 into the die mold II.
'I'he cover I2 is held- in closed position by a
plunger I5 having a. piston I8 on one end disposed
in a pneumatic .cylinder I1.
The die mold II is constructed in the manner
shown in Fig. 4, with a gate 20 through which
the molten metal enters the mold. The gate 20
communicates with a groove 2| which `forms a
conduit for conducting the metal around the l5
mold and to laterally extending -conduits which
communicate _with the die cavities 23 in which
the cast articles are formed.
-In each of the cavities 23 there is disposed a
cast article and ejecting the article from the mold. threaded core pin 24 and each core pin has a 20

Further objects of the invention will appear
from the following specification taken in con
30 nection with the drawings which form a part of
this application, and in which

structed in accordance with the invention and
adapted for use in carrying out the method;

The invention briiiy described consists of a `
i method of die casting a plurality of threaded
articles in a group and of simultaneously sep
arating the core pins and articles and >ejecting
the casting from the mold after the casting has
set. The invention further consists in apparatus
i for carrying out this method and in apparatus
for simultaneously opening the die and ejecting
the casting therefrom:
Further details of the invention will appear
from the following description.

III. The front end of /the shaft 28 is mounted
in ball bearings 3|.
A pulley 35 is rotatably mounted on the shaft
28 and is driven in any suitable manner, as by
a belt 36. 'I'he pulley 35 forms `a ily wheel and 30
has secured thereto a plurality of clutch pins 31
which are adapted to seat in sockets 38 of a
shiftable clutch member or yoke 39 which is keyed
to the shaft 28. When the clutch member 39 is
shifted to the left viewing Fig. l the pins 31 will 35
enter the recesses 38 and the shaft will be driven
by the ily wheel 35.
The clutch yoke 39 is engaged by a clutch
shifting lever 40 pivoted on a iixed pivot 4I and
having its lower end connected by a. link 42 to 40
a lever 43. Lever 43 has a fork 44 at its lower
end in which is positioned a fixed pin 45. The
-upper end of the Vlever 43 is pivoted at 4.6 to th
die cover or closure I2. .
In order to facilitate the stopping of the shaft 45
28 when the clutch is thrown out, a brake 50 of
any suitable construction is mounted on the base
III and frictionally engages a pulley 5I mounted
on the left hand end of the shaft 28 viewing
Fig. l.
When the casting is to be formed the parts are
disposed in the position illustrated in Figs. 1 and
2,.with the die cover I2 closed and heldin closed y
