The Miller Automac Feeder
The Iron Man Service
Wo of this mineral and coal section command the ahilily with
(ho aid of machinery to dig from nature's bosom the natural re?
sources that make millions depending lipon us; happy and pros?
perous, h is bill natural then that we should look to machinery
to solve our problems; therefore, the purchase of a Miller Auto?
matic Press Feeder.
You will lind in our new plant, as down to date as any city of
ils size in the country en u boas I a Miller Automatic Feeder at?
tached to a Chandler ?V I'rico pi.Men press ami when thus attached
it is an integral part or unit of the machine, an ideal unit with
which wo have doubled out output and perfected the quality of
work. Our pressman, who is keenly alivo to every product ion essen?
tial is no longer handicapped by the human clement in hand feed?
ing, for he can depend upon the tireless energy and mechanical ac?
curacy of the'Miller Feeder.?
To give our readers boiiic idea of how flid Miller Feeder oper?
ates with an accuracy that hand feeding cannot duplicate we wjll
stale briefly it> operations: The pressman makes-ready as usual,
the feeder being raised up out of Ins way as is shown in the above
illustration, until job is ma.de ready. To those not familiar with
printing terms by ??maKo-rcady1' is mean I getting tin1 type form
to print properly and soiling the guides against which the paper
rests when put into the press. (This particular operation is re?
quired whether foil by hand or automatically fed). Thon; are live
adjustments on the feeder which lake from throe to four minutes
tu make; ami. behold, wo start machine to operate and perfectly
printed sheets clean and spotless without a wrinkle and full count
begin to pile up rapidly in the jogger. It starts by an air vacuum
raising the sheet, the air being generated from a pump which is
attached to the press, (bo pump starting with the motion of the
press and giving both blow ami vacuum no extra driving means
necessary to operate it, then four grippers take the sheet to the
guides. After the sheet is printed two' delivery lingers Come down
on to the platen and deliver the shcol into the jogger. From the
the lime (hat the -heel is raised by air until it is delivered there
is some part of the feeder and press in contact with it leaving
nothing lo the elements and making inaccuracy impossible, When
the Tili? sheets which are put into stock table of feeder at one time
are all printed a hell notifies you that stock is out and more stock
is wauled.
Some have said that the feeder is human, hut it is more than
human, always being there and ready, giving twice the output, and
accuracy that hand feeding cannot equal. While to the layman
watching the Miller Feeder in operation it seems marvelous and he
gives expression of wonderment it i* in reality very simple as it
has conclusively proven to us.
All who are interested ait; invited to call lo see the feeder
which proves ??tlie value of steady impressions."
Our entire plant is equipped with the must practical machin?
ery and our workmen niv of the best?a combination which makes
our service excellent.
M. I.. Abrains, of Cleveland, Ohio, demonstrator and expert
mechanic for the Miller Saw-Trimmer Company at I'ittsbnrg, I'd;,
has been here for the past three days installing the above named
feeder. Mr. Ahrains is not only a mechanic of unusual ability,
but knows the printing business as well, having been employed in
some of the largest printing shops in the country since a mere lad.
This is his lirsi visit to this part of Virginia and the grand moun?
tain scenery proved very attractive to him. We found him very
congenial, enthusiastic and likeable young mau. His method of
instructing our pressman was clear und thorough und we hope
when our next machine arrives thai he will come to renew our
pleasant acquaintance.
