J., a corporation of New Jersey Application June »27, 1944, Serial No. 542,281 In Great Britain July 30, 1943 26 Claims. , 1 , v This invention pertains to improvements in i pasting machine of the type disclosed in an appli cation Serial No. 512,924,_ ñled December 4, 1943, in my name, and towhich reference may be had for details not more fully disclosed herein. adhesive, hereinafter called paste, to a premolded counter in asemiautomatic manner, said machine being used in conjunction withheel-seat lasting` machines tovfurnish freshly coated counters at a rapid rate and is such timed relation Awith the heel-seat pulling-over and lasting operations that a freshly coated counter will constantly be , operation. TheY . aforesaid prior machine includes a pairof oppo counter. 20 ing legs of the counter are moved in succession. A reciprocating crosshead is provided for moving the counter linearly with respect to the applicator brushes, open end first, to advance one leg of the 25 counterbetween the brushes, then to rotate the, counter as the rounded end reaches the brush en gaging the inner side of the counter, and thento 2 proved coating machine for progressively apply ing a coating toa piece of work, by relative move ment between an applicator and> a work holder, Y, which will insure an adequate coatingV at one point in the progressive operation by increasing the pressure between the Work and the appli cator. By such an arrangement, it is possible to obtain a heavy coating of paste at, for example, the line of initial engagement between the ap plicator and a piece of work, such as a shoe In the above-mentioned application there is il lustrated and claimed ka machine for applying sitely disposed parallel applicator brushes, fur nished with paste and between which the diverg n which, as illustrated, is a brush, so lightly en gaged the leg of the counter adjacent to the un coatedl area upon initial contact that the thick nessof the paste applied at this point was very thin. An object of the invention is to provide anim chine aspect, as embodied in an improved counter in readiness for the succeeding , substantially tangential. Hence, the applicator, machines for and methods yof applying a coating to shoe parts and is illustrated herein, in its ma f , -ì ' l ` ` n of In order> toenable the progressive application a band _ofcoating material of uniform thick ness which may be spaced from> the edges of the wor , thereby leaving a „bare margin, the machine is arranged, in accordance with a feature of thef invention,v for relative movement between a work holder and an applicator and for additional.` movement between the work holderv and the ap I plicator in a direction different ,from the direc tion of progressive coating movement to bring the Work and the applicator firmly together at one 30 other leg between the brushes. The movement „ i point, 'such as at >the time- of initial engagement between the two. As herein illustrated, the ap of the crosshead is then reversed and _hence car- , plicator is in the form of a driven rotary brush ries the counter back to itsstarting point, the continue the linear movement of the counter in . the same -direction, rounded end ñrst, to `draw the linear and rotation-al movements of the. counter Y being duplicated in opposite directionsso that and the work carrier, movable in a predetermined path to present the leg of the counter substan tially tangentially to that brush inside of a bare marginv on the counter, is arranged to tilt the counter ñrmly against the brush at the point of initial contact »and again adjacent to the pointv two coats of paste are applied. For reasons which appear in the priory application, it is desir able to omit the‘application of paste to the yupper margins and especially to the inside and outside marginal surfaces of the legs of the counter adja .40 of separation ,between the brush and the counter. As in the prior machine, the machine of the cent to their ends. This was accomplished in the ~ prior machine by arranging the supporting means ` so that it held the counter .with one leg at an present vinvention includes two applicators, such as driven rotatable brushes, one of which is also movable bodily. One of the brushes is supplied angle to its path of movement relativeto the applicator, the angular position of the counter 45 with paste directly, and the other receives a sup being such that the marginal portion of the l ply ofA paste from the first brush during those periods when no work is passing between them. counter leg adjacent to its advancing end lay The bodily movable brush receives paste directly outside the sphere of action of the applicator and from a paste container herein, however, and in hence thisportion remained uncoated. `In some instances, because of the an-gle at which the leg 50 accordance with a feature of this invention, means is provided for extruding paste Vfrom the of the counter approached the applicator, there container onto the surface` of the brush.~ As il was some fuzziness between the coated area of lustrated, thisis accomplished automatically by the counter leg and the uncoated marginal por tion thereof, due to the fact that the initial còn- , , tact between the applicator and the counter wasl an extrusion member associated with the con tainer. andY operated by> the movement of the 5,5 counter holding and clamping means to force the 2,404,345 ' 3 tion, one to the other, means I4 for applying a coating of adhesive, hereinafter called paste, to a premolded counter C (Fig. ,7) and means IB for ìpaste through a plurality of openings in the bot tom of the container onto the surface of the ap plicator brush and in such timed relation with the `movement of the counter holder that the paste is l applied to the brush when the counter holder and clamping Vmeans is at its loading position and holding the counter and moving it progressively with respect to the applicator means in such a manner` as to apply paste to both the inside and OX outside surfacesof the counter,V as, illustrated in' ‘ hence out of contact withthe brushes.

While the slide valve 58 for extruding the paste 45 the initial contact between the two is very‘light, due to the fact that the applicator brush is com- ; from the receptacle is ordinarily automatically posed of a plurality of flexible bristles which ex operated,v as will appear further on, it may be tend radially from the center of rotation of the desirable to load the applicator `brush I8 with brush. In other words, since'the surface of the . paste prior to setting the machine in motion, or counter approaches the applicator substantially at other times during the operation of the ma tangentially thereto, it is'found that the pres chine, independently of the automatic means. sure is so light when the surface of the counter Such independent application of paste' to the Viirst contacts the brush that there is substan brush is ¿provided for by manually operable tially no application of paste. As a result, there means. This means includes a pair of rods v'I2 (Fig. 2) at opposite sides of the receptacle adapt- . ed to slide in bosses ‘I4 formed at the lower corners ofl the receptacle. The rods are connected atv p is no clear line between the uncoated area 204 at the marginal end of the leg and the coated area at the rear of this marginal portion. This is undesirable because the adhesivebond between their opposite ends by horizontal bars 1,6 Which may be grasped by the operator and >afford means the .counter Iand the lining and upper material bosses; One of the bars >~.'10, namely, that shown at the right‘in Fig. 2, is fixed to the free end of the slide valve which projects from' the receptacle.
