The present invention relates to the marking of gambling chips having the general shape of a disc, or of objects of similar shape, by pad printing. Gambling chip, also called casino chip, should be understood to mean any element which can be used in gambling halls and represents a nominal value which may or may not be predetermined.

Generally, these chips are manufactured from a rigid and scratch-resistant plastic. More specifically, the decoration of the chips is capable of fulfilling at least one of the several functions presented briefly below:.

In particular, this patent describes the marking of each face of the chip by pad printing using an inked pad which is moved coaxially with the chip with, for chips having a soft-profiled side without a straight side, marking of part of the side corresponding to the chamfered or rounded edge of the face of the chip.

However, this technique, whose means of implementation are quite complex and expensive, is not always satisfactory, especially when the side decoration has to be reproduced with very great positional accuracy over the entire circular perimeter of the straight side writing, bar code and various codings, periodic circular drawing.

The invention recognizes that there is a need for a new method of marking straight-sided gambling chips which eliminates, or appreciably reduces, the limitations and other drawbacks presented above. For this purpose, the invention provides a method of marking the side of a straight-sided disc-shaped gambling chip or an object of similar shape by pad printing, characterized by the use of an inked pad which is moved coaxially with the chip in conjunction with a flat ink plate having a ring-shaped zone suitable for being placed coaxially with the pad and bearing a decoration image defined by a radially deformed representation of the decoration of the straight side of the chip.

Thus, the use of the decoration image which is radially deformed with respect to the side decoration makes it possible to distribute the effect of distortion on the final decoration due to the variations in diameter of the chip over the entire circumferential perimeter of the side of the chip and to make this effect negligible. According to a first variant of the invention, the decoration image is obtained by the combination of an operation of radially folding up the decoration for the side of the chip around a facial edge included in the plane of the ink plate and of an operation of contracting the decoration towards the facial edge, the sequential or chronological order in which the two operations are performed being of no consequence,.

In particular, according to a first way of implementing the method of the invention, the decoration image is obtained from an intermediate decoration produced by radially folding up the side decoration into a reference plane corresponding to the plane of the ink plate and including one of the faces of the chip the reference face , by way of a radial transformation of contraction of the intermediate decoration in the reference plane towards the center of the ring bearing the decoration image.

Advantageously, the position of the internal circular border of the ring and the contraction coefficient of the radial transformation are determined, for a given straight-sided chip model and a given pad, by marking the chip model using a positioning ink plate set on the axis of the chip and bearing a pattern consisting of closely-spaced concentric circles.

In practice, the magnitude of the radial contraction and of the associated reduction in height of the side decoration depend on the deformation of the pad on the surface of the chip, in other words they depend on the type of chip to be marked, on the profile and nature of the pad material, hardness, surface finish and, to a lesser extent, on the inks employed.

Moreover, in order to solve the problem of the colours of the decoration marked on the side of the chip lightening due to the inked pad stretching, use is made, according to two variants of the invention, either of an ink plate having a halftone decoration image for a face of the chip and a non-halftone side decoration image or an ink plate having a decoration image for a face of the chip and a deeply-etched side decoration image, the etching of the side decoration image then being deeper than the etching of the decoration image for the face of the chip.

Moreover, by making the internal circular border of the ring come into correspondence with the edge of the reference face of the chip, the heightwise positioning of the decoration is facilitated for marking a solid-straight-sided chip. Likewise, it is advantageous, in the radial contraction transformation, to use as relative origin on each radius OR the corresponding point A on the edge of the reference face of the chip.

It should be pointed out that the invention also applies to soft-edged chips having a central straight side extending substantially over a large portion of the thickness of the chip and connected to the two faces of the latter by two transition zones small fillets or broadened chamfers. According to another variant of the invention, these central-straight-sided chips are marked by making the internal circular border of the ring to correspond approximately to the circle of axial projection of the straight side on the reference face of the chip.

According to yet another variant of the method according to the invention, an axially symmetric deformable pad is used which has a diameter at least equal to the diameter of the chip increased by about five times the height of the side of the chip.

Apart from the chips and other straight-sided objects of similar shape, the straight side of which is pad-printed using the method of the invention defined above, the invention also relates to a pad-printing device suitable for implementing this method, which includes a support for the chip, the support being equipped with a mechanism for centering the chip coaxially with the pad before the operation of marking the side by pad printing, the centering mechanism being retractable in order to allow the side of the chip to be marked during movement of the pad.

Advantageously, the retractable centering mechanisms, of the type comprising slides or a centering ring, are mounted so as to slide axially over the perimeter of the support. Most advantageously, the device accordingly to the invention includes a mechanism for holding the chip in place on its support, especially when raising the pad. Other characteristics and advantages of the present invention will appear on reading the description which follows, with reference to the drawings appended hereto.

By way of non-limiting example, the chip 10 has a diameter of 40 mm for a side thickness or height of about 3. The side 14 has a side decoration, in this case, and by way of non-limiting example, a crenellated line 15 consisting of sixteen symmetrical crenels distributed around the circumferential perimeter of the chip 10 , the crenellated line 15 being moreover centered heightwise on the side Thus, the face 12 reference face which bears a face decoration for example a colored square 18 intended to be pad-printed together with the side decoration 15 is shown, to size, as the edge 16 the reference edge represented by a first dashed circle.

The decoration image 22 is obtained by radially deforming the side decoration line 15 , preferably in the following manner. Similarly, the points A i on the upper edge 16 of the cylinder-shaped chip 10 have corresponding ones B i at the intersection of the cylinder generatfices with the lower edge 17 of the lower face not shown of the chip 10 , as can be seen, for instance, at A 0 , B 0 or A 7 , B 7.

Preferably, the contraction coefficient K for the height of the side decoration 15 is between 0. It should be noted that these operations of radially deforming the decoration for the side of the chip in order to obtain the flat decoration image radial folding-up and radial contraction transformation or, conversely, contraction along the side of the original decoration towards the edge of the reference face followed by radial folding are capable of being carried out on a computerized workstation using computer-aided design software.

Of course, without departing from the scope of the invention, the gambling chip may be replaced by an object of similar shape made of a material capable of receiving a decoration by pad printing.

The operation of marking the side of a straight-sided gambling chip by pad printing secondarily with padprinting of one of the faces of the chip can be performed by various types of devices, machines or apparatuses. By way of non-limiting example, FIG. Considering FIG.

An ink pad 34 is mounted on a frame 31 so as to be able to move in vertical reciprocating motion. As will be seen later, the deformable head 36 is designed to bed down on the face 12 and the edge 16 of the chip 10 while the straight side 14 is being marked. A plate holder 40 , carrying a flat ink plate 11 which incorporates the image of a side decoration for example the decoration image 22 illustrated in FIG.

The pad-printing operation is carried out in the following manner. A first downward vertical movement of the pad 34 allows the ink to be picked up simply by applying pressure. Marking with a monochrome final or intermediate decoration is thus achieved. In the case of multicolor marking, either several movable plate holders or a series of monochrome pad-printing units associated with a movable chip-holder support are used. In general, the ink plates are etched to a depth of between 18 and 20 micrometers.

It should be noted that, in the case of face-and-side marking, in order to solve the problem of the colors of the decoration marked in solid color on the side of the chip lightening due to the reduction in the amount of ink deposited per unit area because of the stretching of the inked pad , use is made, according to the invention, of one of the two following variants:. Such a plate is obtained by using a suitable mask. As may be seen in FIGS. This centering operation, prior to the marking proper or in the initial phase of the marking, is important in order to position the chip 10 accurately with respect to the pad 34 , especially in the present case so that the edge 16 is in precise correspondence with its inked image on the conical end 38 of the pad After the conical end 38 has moved beyond the plane of the face 12 , the centering slides 32 gradually retract by way of any known mechanical arrangement in order to allow the head 38 of the pad 34 to deform along the side 14 , while bedding down on the edge 16 the latter being sufficiently sharp to prevent undesirable slippage from the face 12 in the region of the edge until complete inking of the side 14 when the end 38 which is conical when not in use of the deformable head 36 of the pad 34 is compressed with the rim of the head 36 projecting slightly beyond the plane of the edge 17 of the lower face 13 of the chip As a variant, it should be noted that the use of one or more patches 43 providing sufficient adhesion to ensure, once the chip has been centered by the slides 32 , that the chip is held in place while it is being marked.

Moreover, the slides 32 may be replaced by a retractable ring not shown mounted on the perimeter of the chip support Preferably, the pad 34 has a deformable head 36 with a substantially conical end and with a working diameter Dt at least equal to the diameter of the chip increased by five times the height of the side of the chip, for example a minimum diameter Dt of 55 mm for the chip 10 with a diameter of 40 mm and a side height h of 3.

Of course, the invention can be used with other types of pads, of various shapes and of various hardnesses, chosen from the manufacturers' standard ranges. Among these may be mentioned pads of cylindrical shape with a convex end, the diameter Dt of which satisfies the above criterion. It is readily apparent that, using the marking method according to the invention, a small variation in the diameter of the chip, for example a few tenths of one mm, is distributed around the entire perimeter of the chip without affecting the circumferential continuity of the decoration thus marked.

As mentioned above, the invention also applies to soft-edged chips having a central straight side extending substantially over a large portion of the thickness of the chip and connected to the two faces of the latter by two transition zones small fillets or broadened chamfers.

By way of non-limiting example, the chip 60 shown diagrammatically in FIG. Of course, the invention as described by way of non-limiting example for the solid-straight-sided chip 10 , in particular the marking operations proper and its various variants, the marking device and its variants, the various pads, the general principle of preparing the plates by folding up onto the reference plane and radially contracting the intermediate decoration, and the plate-etching variants, is also applicable to a central-straight-sided chip, especially to the chip 60 illustrated in FIG.

Thus, the internal border of the ring 70 bearing the decoration image is generally moved closer to the center O of the chip As illustrated in FIG. The pattern 82 , shown diagrammatically in FIG. By way of non-limiting example, the pattern 82 used for the chip 60 has 23 closely-spaced concentric circles 84 numbered from M 1 to M 23 and, in this case, spaced apart by 0. Secondarily, the pattern has segments not shown of 64 equally distributed radii crossing the concentric circles 84 in order to determine the lateral broadening of the decoration image with the distance from the center O and to detect any possible lateral slippage of the pad.

Thus, the positioning plate 80 is used to mark the straight side of the model of the chip Of course, the central straight side of the chip 60 is marked by pad printing by using, in a manner already described, the device illustrated in FIGS. Effective date : Year of fee payment : 4. Year of fee payment : 8. Year of fee payment : Method for pad-printing a substantially cylindrical chip having opposing faces and a side, the method comprising forming a first decoration, including a section for at least a portion of the side of the chip, radially deforming the section to form a second decoration, providing an ink plate with the second decoration, moving a pad coaxially into contact with the ink plate such that the second decoration transfers to the pad and moving the pad coaxially into contact with the chip such that the second decoration transfers to the side to print the section on the side, wherein a contraction coefficient of the radially deforming is determined, for a given straight-sided chip and a given pad, by marking a chip model using a positioning ink plate centered on an axis of the chip, the positioning ink plate bearing a pattern comprising closely-spaced concentric circles.

Field of the Invention The present invention relates to the marking of gambling chips having the general shape of a disc, or of objects of similar shape, by pad printing.

According to a first variant of the invention, the decoration image is obtained by the combination of an operation of radially folding up the decoration for the side of the chip around a facial edge included in the plane of the ink plate and of an operation of contracting the decoration towards the facial edge, the sequential or chronological order in which the two operations are performed being of no consequence, In particular, according to a first way of implementing the method of the invention, the decoration image is obtained from an intermediate decoration produced by radially folding up the side decoration into a reference plane corresponding to the plane of the ink plate and including one of the faces of the chip the reference face , by way of a radial transformation of contraction of the intermediate decoration in the reference plane towards the center of the ring bearing the decoration image.

It should be noted that, in the case of face-and-side marking, in order to solve the problem of the colors of the decoration marked in solid color on the side of the chip lightening due to the reduction in the amount of ink deposited per unit area because of the stretching of the inked pad , use is made, according to the invention, of one of the two following variants: either an ink plate having a halftone face decoration image for example with dots per inch and a non-halftone side decoration image; or an ink plate having a decoration image for a face of the chip and a deeply-etched side decoration image, the etching of the side decoration image about 25 micrometers then being deeper than the etching of the decoration image for the face of the chip about 18 micrometers.
