  • Patent number: 4792264
    Abstract: The cutter head of a reamer carries a circular tool bit and two guide members. Each guide member has an outer-most edge at the furthest distance from the center of rotation of the tool and slanted edges inclined at progressively greater angles from the outer edge towards the front of the tool where the initial cut takes place. The first slanted edge, at an angle of less than 10 degrees and preferably between 3 and 5 degrees, intersects the outer-most edge at a point which lags the extreme point on the tool bit by about 0.4 mm in the direction of advance of the tool. The first slanted edge extends at least to the radial plane containing the extreme point of the tool bit. Thereafter, a slanted edge at an angle inclined between 15 and 25 degrees extends in the forward direction, to be followed by a third slanted edge inclined at an angle to the outer-most edge of between 30 and 75 degrees.

  • Patent number: 4779401
    Abstract: A manufacturing and packaging arrangement for cards, especially playing cards, includes a sheet cutting and card stacking station, two corner punching stations, and a packaging stations which are connected with one another by a conveyor arrangement that is driven by a motor. In the cutting and stacking station, printed sheets are cut up into individual cards and those cards which belong to respective sets are assembled into respective card stacks which are then discharged from the cutting and stacking station by a discharge arrangement and transferred by a transfer conveyor to an intermittently driven main conveyor. At the main conveyor, the individual card stacks are engaged by entraining fingers which extend into a transporting channel, and are intermittently transported longitudinally of the channel to the corner punching stations.

  • Patent number: 4774623
    Abstract: A bistable relay circuit adapted to be operated from a two polarity supply of predetermined voltage, includes a control relay having a coil exhibiting hysterisis, and at least a first single pole, double throw switch, having one pole contact and two non-pole contacts. The control relay coil has a resistance value which is low compared to the resistance value of the first resistor, while a current operatively flowing therethrough is insufficient on its own to energize the control relay. A first resistor is in series with the coil of the control relay. The series combination of the control relay coil and of the first resistor are connected to the power supply. The circuit also includes a second single pole, double throw switch, having one pole contact and two non-pole contacts. A second resistor is connected to the pole contact of the first switch, and to one of the non-pole contacts of the second switch, and a capacitor is connected to the pole of the second switch and to one polarity of the power supply.

  • Patent number: 4770020
    Abstract: An apparatus for flow-forging and sheet-metal rubber-forming a shaped part from a work includes two members spaced from one another which define a pressure zone therebetween. First and second dies disposed between the members clamp the work therebetween, and a roller conveyor transports one die along a transport direction. The dies are driven to and from the pressure zone, and one die includes a plurality of adjoining pressure-transferring elements. In a plurality of self-adjustable matching devices, each is interposed between the roller conveyor and a pressure-transfer surface of a corresponding pressure-transferring element. Each matching device automatically adjusts its position, as it passes through the converging pressure zone. A longitudinal member of each matching device has a substantially plane surface of a width exceeding at least a center-to-center spacing of two adjoining rollers of the roller conveyor.
