Abstract: A process for producing fibrous material moldings surface-coated with a decorative sheeting is described. Cellulose and/or lignocellulose fibers are mixed with binders and are compressed by single-stage or multistage moldings, so that the decorative sheeting covering the finished molded surface is used as a supporting sheet for the non-woven fabric to be shaped. The fibrous material mixture is placed on the side of the decorative sheeting provided with an adhesive, and thus, a mat fleece whose entire surface is joined to the decorative sheeting is produced therefrom. The adhesive between the decorative sheeting and the non-woven fabric can be an adhesive foam.
Abstract: In an apparatus for stamping flat objects of different sizes and thicknesses, particularly postal items, said objects are arranged vertically on a feed table. The objects are individually removed from the latter and successively moved past a stamp and are then conveyed to a depositing table. The supplied and deposited objects are in parallel planes to one another. The feed and depositing tables are successively arranged in a vertical direction to one of these planes. The objects are removed from the feed table at right angles to said direction and are supplied to the depositing table. The objects are placed on the feed table by their leading edge in the transfer direction during individual removal. The conveying path of the object between the feed and depositing tables is horizontal.
Abstract: A crimping die apparatus for crimping an electric terminal upon the end of an electrical conductor and severing the terminal from a carrier strip during the crimping operation by means of a cutter driven in its severing action by crimping action of the die is provided with conductor or wire locating fingers opened and closed by motion of the die. The fingers are operable to grip the conductor closely adjacent the plane of action of the cutter and actuation of the cutter is accomplished by the fingers as the fingers align the conductor with the terminal which is to be crimped about the conductor.
Abstract: A thermometer probe or pyrometer for measuring the temperature in low-convection media is disclosed, which has a temperature-dependent resistor, a receiving sleeve which receives the resistor and a holding device. The resistor is covered by heat conducting material. The receiving sleeve is constructed as an elongated, thin-walled, tubular sleeve of poor heat conducting material and surrounds an elongated air chamber, through which are passed the leads to the temperature-dependent resistor.
Abstract: A process for making moldings with areas of marked final deformation from highly sensitive materials, such as tangled-fiber fleeces, in which the flat material is molded in the softened state between press molds. Prior to the actual molding process and independent of the desired molding of the final molding in a particular area and without any precompression of the material, the material is mechanically drawn between the corresponding press molds to such an extent that the resulting material flow roughly corresponds to the feed requirement for the final molding operation. The necessary auxiliary device comprises one or more push-rods with ram heads, which can be brought between the press molds when the press is in the open position and can be moved in the desired directions in the manner of an automated human fist.
Abstract: Produced flake like metal chip has a shape being convexed in one side and concaved in the other side in its cross section.These metal chips are produced by dipping spherical or cone shaped projections provided on an outer surface of a rotary drum into molten metal contained in a molten metal reservoir, the molten metal adheres to each projections being dipped then the adhered molten metal is stripped off of each projection after at least a part of the molten metal has solidified.The apparatus for working the above-mentioned method includes, a molten metal reservoir, a rotary drum carrying on its outer surface a number of aforesaid projections, to the tip end of which the molten metal is adhered, and a means for stripping off the adhered molten metal after at least a part of the adhered molten metal has solidified.
Abstract: A breakaway hose coupling includes axially separable housing sections maintained in coupled relationship with each other by a frangible coupling pin or set screw. Each housing section includes a valve controlled flow passage in which a spring biassed valve closes the flow passage when the housing sections are separated. Valve stems on the respective valves moves into axial abutment with each other as the housing sections are coupled to mutually hold the respective valves open when the housing sections are coupled.
Abstract: A simplified sound reproducing device in which the stylus force of a reproducing stylus is imparted by a stylus pressure spring, the weight of the turn table being independently supported so that only the weight of the stylus and related tone arm are impinged upon the record to be reproduced. The stylus force imparted by the stylus pressure spring permits the stylus to remain in contact with the record disc following its undulations and reproducing high quality sounds.
Abstract: A vibration testing apparatus for detecting vibrations in a rotating internal combustion engine. The apparatus includes a sensor mounted on the engine and a timing circuit responsive to the firing of the spark plugs in the engine to generate successive time windows corresponding to the firing of each spark plug during which the frequency of vibrations are sensed by the sensor. The sensed frequencies and intensities of the vibrations are measured against pre-settable intensities for each cylinder of the engine which are settable with respect to the location of each cylinder to the sensor and, also, the firing order of each spark plug in the engine. This generates an output indicative of any excess vibrations within the engine and provides an indication of which cylinder in the engine such excess vibrations are being generated.
Abstract: A four bar linkage is movable from a first position to a second position by a continuous motion of a linear actuator. The linkage comprises a first leg and a second leg shorter than the first leg spaced from and parallel to the first leg in the first position.
