Y. Application May 4, 1944, 'Serial'N'o. 534,016 .6 Claims. (01. 131:_51) 1 2 The present invention relates to a cigarette A metal die (or rubber stamp) 28 of the ini making machine. tials of a name, such as a monogram, is set in a One of its objects is to provide a simple ma chine for making cigarettes of standard or king recess 29 formed in platform 2i adjacent in size or any other desirable size. ’ Another object is the provision of a cigarette Two plates 30 are affixed to platform descend ing portion 2] in such manner that they are sit making machine that simultaneously makes ciga uated in parallel planes, parallel to the planes . ' cline 22. " I ' ' in which casing sides I2 are disposed. Substan tially U-shaped ‘slots 3| are cut or otherwise 10 formed, respectively, in said plates, one of the two arms of said slots being shorter than the anism shown in the accompanying drawing, in other, the longer arm being open at the top. The shorter arm, which is closed at the top, is Figure 1 is a plan view of the entire machine; situated adjacent ‘and parallel to the platform Fig. 2 is a sectional view of the entire machine drawn on the line 2—2 of Figure 1 showing the 15 descending portion 21, and is designated'with. the numeral 32. The longer arm which is open machine in readiness to make a cigarette; at the top, is also situated parallel to said plat Fig. 3 is a view similar to that of Fig. 2 show form descending vportion 21 but not adjacent ing a part of the machine after the cigarette has thereto, and is designated by the number 33. been made but before it is ejected from the roll A web or apron 34 whose opposite ends 35 ing mechanism thereof; and * 20 are respectively rolled around rods 33 covers ~ Fig. 4 is a perspective view, partly broken away, rettes and imprints them with the initials of a name, such as a monogram. I These and other objects are attained by mech which , ' ' of the rolling mechanism of the machine. The machine is housed in a casing II] which may consist of an elongated, rectangular box platform 2 I, one of said rods being held by gland 24, the other of said rods being slidably ?xed in U-shaped slots 3|, the web itself being slidably open at the top. Parallel, longitudinally and 25 held between rollers I1 and I8 on the one hand, horizontally disposed slots II are formed in the . and fingers 20 on the other. sides I2 of said casing at a longer distance from said web exposes said die 28. An opening 31 in A concave trough 38 closed at both ends 39 is ‘casing rear end I3 than from casing front end I4. , a?ixed at said ends to arms 49 which are pivoted Slidably mounted in said slots is a transversely disposed rod I5 whose ends project beyond thev - by means of screws 4| to blocks 42, said blocks being fastened’ to the'casing sides 12 adjacent sides I2 of said casing, said ends having affixed plates 30. A concave-convex plunger 43 isvsitu thereto knobs I6. 'Rotatably mounted on said‘ ated in said’ trough 38 :being af?Xed thereto by rod I5 are a centrally disposed elongated roller means of stems 43 which project respectively H and two short end rollers I8. Arms I9 are through holes 45 in said trough and are joined affixed, respectively, to the outer ends of end on the other side of said trough by means of rollers I8 and affixed to said arms, are ?ngers 20, handle bar 46. Said trough rests on brackets 47. said ?ngers being situated in axial alignment When swung over with pivoted arms 40, trough with each other, parallel to said rod I5. 38 falls, upside down, upon web 34, immediately Situated immediately below slots II is an ele above platform valley 25. vated platform 2| which rises in a curved incline An inking pad 48 is affixed to transverse rod 49 (designated 22) from, the floor 23 of casing I0 which in turn is affixed to cam shaped arms 50, adjacent front casing end I4. At the line where said arms being pivoted, by means of screws 5I~ incline 22 and the platform proper 2! meet, a to the casing sides I2 adjacent platform ridge 26. downwardly disposed gland 24 is formed. At the When rod 49 is swung over with said pivoted opposite edge of platform 2| a valley 25 is formed, arms, inking pad 48 comes down, face forward, . parallel to said edge and to casing ends I3 and through web opening 31 upon die 28. I4. The valley rises to an overhanging ridge The compartment 52 which is formed between 26 which is higher than the platform 2 l , the ridge rear casing end I3 and platform descending por then descending to casing floor 23, the descend tion 2'! holds tobacco 51. When the machine is ing portion thereof being designated by the nu not in use a cover 53 carrying a knob 54 covers meral 21. The distance between casing slots I! said compartment, said cover resting on end on the one hand and the platform 2! on the other blocks 55 which are a?ixed to casing end I3. is such that rollers I1 and I8 readily pass over To operate the machine, tobacco 51 is taken the platform with but slight clearance, when rod from compartment 52 and placed in trough 38. I5 is moved along said slots. ' 2,406,675 4 3 A sheet of cigarette paper 56 gummed at one edge and previously moistened, is placed on web 34 where web 34 falls into, and conforms to the curvature of, valley 25. The inking pad 48 on rod 49 is now swung over on pivoted arms 50 until it makes inking contact with die 28 through Web opening 31. Trough 38 is now swung over with pivoted arms 40 until it falls on cigarette paper 56 on web 34. 2. In a cigarette making machine, a platform, a web covering said platform, platform traversing roller means to impart a rolling motion to said web, a die on said platform and an opening in said web to register with said die. 3. In a cigarette making machine in accord ance with claim 1, an inking pad mounted on a rod affixed to a pair of cam shaped pivoted arms, said inking pad being adapted, when swung over Handle bar 46 is pushed down and tobacco 51 with said arms, to come into inking contact with is forced out of trough 38 and onto cigarette paper 56. The trough is now returned to its position of rest on brackets 41 and the machine is ready to make a cigarette. Rod 15 is, at this moment, resting at the rear said die through said web opening, said cam shaped arms being adapted to engage said end rollersand to be elevated by them when they traverse said platform. end of slots II. It is now moved, by means of knobs IS in a frontward direction. Fingers 20' meet the front wall of Valley 25 and are stopped . by it. Rod l5 continues in movement toward the front end of slots ll passing over ?ngers 20 ~ which are being temporarily held behind by said front wall of valley 25. Since web 34 is held between ?ngers 20 and rod rollers l1 and I8,‘a rolling motion is imparted to said web and it assumes the form, substantially, of a rolling tube . coiled around ?ngers 20. This rolling motion rolls the cigarette paper 56 around tobacco 51, thus forming a cigarette.’ When the cigarette’ passes over die 28, the monogram is printed upon it. As rod l5 thus moves in a forward direction, it engages and raises cam shaped arms 50 thus raising inking pad 48 and passing under it. When 4.
