SECTION I - LINES WITH OTHER CLASSES AND WITHIN THIS CLASS
Class 162, Paper Making and Fiber Liberation, class includes
machines and processes for making buttons or the parts thereof and
assembling the same, including metallic, composition, pearl, etc.,
except such buttons as are formed of plastic material, including
molten glass, which are formed in molds or are molded upon the shanks
of the buttons, these being classified in Class 65, Glass Manufacturing
or appropriate subclasses or Class 264, Plastic and Nonmetallic
Article Shaping or Treating: Processes, or Class 425, Plastic Article
or Earthenware Shaping or Treating: Apparatus, subclasses 117+, and
except metallic buttons formed by casting, including casting upon
shanks, classified in Class 164, Metal Founding.
Article Dispensing, appropriate subclasses for article dispensers (feeders)
including button blank feeders, particularly
subclasses 156+ for dispensers including orienting of articles,
and subclasses 175+ for dispensers including stack forming.
This subclass is indented under the class definition. Machines and processes for making shank-buttons from sheet
metal, leather, and compositions, including glass, papiermache, etc.,
which form the button-head and also form and secure a shank or eye
to the button-head.
Note. Machines for forming the shank merely are also classified
in this subclass, inasmuch as they are usually, but fragments of
the button-making machines.
Note. Machines that merely mold buttons are classified in
the appropriate molding or casting according to the material used.
Glass Manufacturing, appropriate subclasses, especially
subclasses 47+ for a process of forming glass in a mold cavity
combined with fusion bonding to a preform, subclasses 152+ for
glass molding or shaping apparatus combined with fusion bonding
means, and subclass 166 for glassworking apparatus including a perforator.
Plastic Article or Earthenware Shaping or Treating:
subclasses 117+ for means molding plastic button-heads upon preformed backs
or shanks and subclass 801 for a cross-reference digest on button
This subclass is indented under the class definition. Miscellaneous machines for making metallic buttons, usually
by cutting the blank from a sheet of metal and bending, die-shaping, or
spinning the blank into the form of a button.
Note. Machines for merely cupping or die-shaping button-blanks
are classified in Class 72, Metal Deforming, subclasses 343+.
This subclass is indented under subclass 3. Machines for uniting the front, filling-blank, and back
