Abstract: A mirror with wide viewing angle and reduced image distortion, to be used as an external rear-view mirror for vehicles which is obtained monolithically by pressure injection-molding or gravity casting of a highly transparent material and its external incident surface is flat, while the reflective rear part is obtained by means of an aspheric surface which is generated by the rotation, about an axis which is ideally parallel to the centerline axis of the vehicle, of a curve which determines, with good approximation, a profile which avoids significant deformation of the reflected images.
Abstract: A bottle for two-component extemporaneous products, of the type that comprises: a container for a first component, which is provided with an upper mouth; a reservoir for containing a second component, which is inserted substantially coaxially in the mouth, is open upward and has a bottom constituted by a diaphragm; a perforator, which can be inserted in the reservoir and is adapted to pierce the diaphragm in order to mix the two components; and a removable cap for closing the container in an upward region; the cap comprises a lower annular portion that is fixed to the container and an upper cylindrical portion that cooperates with the perforator and is rigidly coupled to the annular portion at an intermediate weakened region suitable to act as sealing means, a downward pressure on the cylindrical portion being adapted to disengage it from the annular portion and to make the perforator slide in the reservoir in order to pierce the underlying diaphragm.
Abstract: A treadmill for performing physical exercise, comprising, on a supporting frame, a belt that winds continuously around a main roller and a free roller; elements for varying the inclination of the supporting frame which are driven by the motion of the belt produced by the energy supplied by the user being also provided.
Abstract: A tobacco processing machine, comprising a frame that is cylindrical and hollow and has an inclined axis; the frame rotates axially so as to break up tobacco bales or slices and is internally provided with rods for moving the tobacco that protrude radially; the tobacco processing machine further comprising elements for feeding steam and/or water and/or another fluid, which are provided on the inner lateral surface of the frame.
Abstract: A truck for shredding and mixing products for zootechnical use, of the type that comprises, on a chassis (11) with wheels (12) that is self-propelled or towed, a container (13) that is substantially shaped like an inverted frustum, is open in an upper region and contains shredding and mixing means (14) which comprise at least two adjacent rotating main screw feeders (15, 16), each having an external profile (17) that lies on a substantially conical imaginary surface and at which shredding cutters are mounted. Contrast cutters (20) substantially shaped like circular sectors are hinged to the internal wall of the container (13) by means of their respective vertices in a vertical arrangement in substantially radial positions and can be inserted and removed through appropriately provided slots. Auxiliary screw feeders (18, 19), suitable to avoid the formation of stagnation regions, are arranged between the main screw feeders (15, 16), in the regions adjacent to the walls of the container (13).
Abstract: A thermoplastic material spreading head including: a valve having a movable needle and a needle cup; a first duct for feeding fluid thermoplastic material to the valve; a second duct, connected in fluid communication to cup; the needle being movable in the body between an open position allowing passage of thermoplastic material flow from the first duct to the second duct, and a closed position in which the needle interferes with the cup to arrest the thermoplastic material flow; an actuating and detecting intake for selective positioning of the needle, for injection in the intake of a pressurized actuation fluid adapted to move the needle at least to the open position; and a pressure sensor arranged on the intake to sense the pressure of the pressurized actuation fluid and provide a confirmation of the position of the needle at least in the open condition.

Abstract: A device for releasing and removing flexible synthetic material elements from a molding surface, comprising a molding surface on which the elements are arranged, a unit for gripping the elements that can be actuated from a lower position, in which it is in contact with the element, to an upper position, the grip unit comprising a tubular body that has a vertical axis and, in a downward region, an edge for compressing, in the lower position, the peripheral region of the element onto the molding surface, forming thereat a region that forms a seal with the surface, the molding surface being provided with a blower for conveying a stream of air under the element in order to release it from the molding surface.
Abstract: A spotlight with perimetrical delimitation of the emitted light beam, comprising a light source for emitting a light beam, an optical element that can move axially with respect to the light beam in order to adjust the breadth of the light beam, and a Fresnel lens for diffusing the light beam. Beam adjusting elements are provided for delimiting perimetrically the light beam which are associated with the optical element and can move axially with it.
Abstract: A modular cage comprising first and second profiled elements connected by interlocking corner joints for reversible joining so as to constitute a supporting frame and grille-like wall elements connected to the frame to constitute the cage, with the corner joints comprising each a corner body from which tangs extend monolithically and at right angles, the tangs being provided with reversible locking devices which enter corresponding first longitudinally elongated seats formed in the profiled elements.
Abstract: A distribution unit for electric power and communications signals, particularly adapted to be used in combination weighers in order to supply power to individual heads of the weigher; the distribution unit is composed of a flexible printed circuit, which is manufactured flat and is provided with a plurality of multipole connectors for supplying power to the heads of a combination weigher and connect them to the communications network; the printed circuit is mounted on a substantially cylindrical structure, so that the multipole connectors are each arranged along a generatrix of the cylinder and the connectors of the weighing heads can be coupled to them radially.
Abstract: A sports shoe, comprising a soft upper provided with a cuff and with a rear counter which are semirigid and are separately connected to the upper, an additional semirigid element that is associated with the upper or monolithically coupled thereto, in an intermediate region, between the cuff and the counter, the additional semirigid element having, at the rear and/or laterally, at least one first tab and at least one second tab for sliding engagement in first guides formed in the cuff and in the counter.
Abstract: A reclosable container, particularly for fluid products, comprising a hollow body for containing the product which has, in an upward region, a neck provided with a dispensing opening and closure means constituted by a grip portion which supports a closure for the opening, the closing means being rigidly coupled to the grip portion, and by at least one annular band which is substantially coaxial to the closure and is fixed to the grip portion along preset-fracture regions formed on its outer surface and is fitted so as to adhere to the neck.
Abstract: A sporting shoe equipped with a device to control the flexion of the toe includes a localized low friction protection body, particularly for a technical boot designed for practicing the sport of motorcycling, removable, attached along one side of the shoe with the use of reciprocal holder and engaging at least part of the point and of the side. The protection body is hinged to a second element, placed at the back, fixed along the external side of the shoe or a part of it, with the cooperation of a third element ovelapping the first two, which, engaging the second, provides two opposite stops that limit the run of the protection body and of the toe part of the relative shoe, or of a part thereof with respect to the back part.
