10 Claims.
Our invention relates to improvements in side
register gauges for printing presses, this appli
i)
cation being a division of our copending appli
cation, Serial No. 649,567, ?led December 30, 1932.
An object of the invention is to provide a sim
ple and durable side register mechanism for bed
and platen presses adapted to be readily adjusted
during press operation.
Another object of the invention is to provide
registering mechanism, as above, adapted readily
to be used for both right and left register.
A further object of our invention is to provide
a sideregistering mechanism for a bed and platen
press in which a sheet shifting member is carried
bythe moving platen and a second member, for
operating said ?rst member, is mounted on the
press frame and adjustable as the platen moves.
With the foregoing and other objects in View,

impression position, such movement of the platen
being accompanied by a relative movement of the
bed 44 which brings a form therein against the
platen, in‘ its impression position and retracts
the bed from the platen in the open position of
the
latter.’

" The illustrated side register mechanism includes
a rodHIB‘Z mounted to slide lengthwiselalong the
lower edge of the platen 39 in bearings _ I 83, I84 se
cured to the platen, said rod being feathered in 10
bearing I33, as shown, and thereby deprived of ro
tational movement in said bearings. A roller I85
journaled on the end of the rod I82, at the right
hand side of the platen, rolls up and down along
an arcuated rail I86 as the platen 39 opens and
closes, said roller I85 being yieldingly held against
Said rail I86 by means. of an expansion spring I81
coiled about the rod I82 and compressed between

and arrangement of parts and in the details of
construction hereinafter described and claimed.

25 form of our improved side register mechanism,
the structure thereof being shown in side ele

in detail of the press platen and adjacent frame
structure, said views also showing the side register

of Fig, 3.
Reference being had to the accompanying
drawings, it will be-seen that the press structure
40 shown includes a frame 30, a. platen rocker 3B
thereon and a platen 39 carried by said rocker.
A suitably driven gear cam wheel 36, mounted
on a shaft 31 in the press frame 39, imparts an
oscillatory movement to the platen rocker 38 in
45 the customary manner, said gear cam wheel being
The rail I86 is pivotally 20
mounted medially thereof on a stud I89 pro
jecting from the gear guard I99 and may be an
gularly swung with respect to the path of move
ment of the platen 39 from the one of its ex
treme positions shown in Fig. 2 to the other of its
extreme positions shown in Fig. 3. The curva
ture of said rail I86 is that of an arc struck from
the axis about which the platen 39 rocks and the
bearingsurface I888“ on said rail for said roller
I85 is a plane surface. A. push-pull adjusting v30
screw I94. journaled inv a bearing I95, pivoted by
means'of a pintle I94a to the gear guard I90, is
threaded in a nut I94b pivoted on an extension
I9I of the rail I86. This push-pull screw I94 is
turned’by means of a ?nger piece I94°, which
abuts against one side of the bearing I95. Se
curedto said screw I94 and abutting against said
bearing I95 at the other side thereof is a thrust
collar I94‘? As a preliminary measure, this ad
justing screw I99 is manipulated to secure, rough

rail.

the press frame structure. A bed 44, supported

by legs 46 pivoted on a bed shaft 41 mounted
in the frame 30, is connected with the gear cam
therein, the curvature of said slot being that of
50 wheel 36 by means of a side rod 5i, a second and
similar rod (not shown) being also employed,
in the usual manner, to connect said bed with
a crank wheel (not shown), mounted on the
shaft 31. In its oscillatory movement, the platen

and thereby rigidly hold the rail I86 in its ad
justed positions.
A gauge I96 for right register, and of the con
struction shown in Fig. 2, may be employed by
mounting the same on a block- I9'I slidably ad
justable on the rod I82. This form of gauge has
a shank portion l96a' paralleling the rod I82 and
an arm I96b issuing from said shank portion at
right angles thereto. Said arm is slotted, as at
I96", and is equipped with the usual slidingly ad
justable sheet engaging ?nger I96d. A gauge I96
for left register, as shown in Fig. 3, may also be
mounted on the adjustable block I91, or the well
known type of swinging tongue may be employed
15 and operated by the reciprocating rod I82 for
engaging a sheet on the platen and shifting it
into register.
For right register, as viewed from the front
of the press, the gauge I96 and rail I86 will oc
cupy positions, for example, as shown in Fig. 2,
while for left register the gauge I96 and rail I86
will occupy positions, for example, as shown in
Fig. 3, the position of the rail I86, in either case,
being readily adjusted through the medium of
25 the adjusting screw I94 during the operation of
the printing press.
Changes in the speci?c form of our invention,
as herein disclosed, may be made within the scope
of what is claimed without departing from the
30 spirit of our invention.
