  • Patent number: 4081017
    Abstract: A machine used in the renewal of large earthmover type tires, wherein the worn lugs are completely removed from the tire casing and replaced with convolutions of unvulcanized rubber material. The machine is provided with a heated knife blade which is utilized to cut a series of grooves in the unvulcanized rubber material of the tread in accordance with a pattern mounted on the machine. The pattern consists of a cam with a curved outer periphery which is monitored as the cam rotates on the machine. The depth to which the knife cuts into the unvulcanized rubber material as it moves transversely across the tread, is varied in accordance with the periphery of the cam being monitored.

  • Patent number: 4076067
    Abstract: A flexible elastic ring having a generally rectangular cross section with radially inner and outer surfaces. A plurality of rigid members are molded in the ring at circumferentially spaced-apart positions and each of the rigid members extends diagonally from an edge at the radially inner surface to an edge at the radially outer surface of the elastic ring. The ring is mounted in a wheel well of the tire rim with the tire bead overlapping the edge at the radially outer surface to hold down the ring and the ends of the rigid members in that edge. The other ends of the rigid members are located in the edge at the radially inner surface of the ring adjacent a radially extending side surface of the ring for resisting deflection of the side surface which abuts a radially extending surface of the wheel well. The rigid members prevent the ring from rotating out of the wheel well in this manner when the ring is subject to centrifugal force during rotation of the wheel on which the rim is mounted.

  • Patent number: 4073047
    Abstract: An improved vibration damper for use with oscillating bodies and the method of making said damper. The damper includes an inner core member or hub, an outer inertia mass member or inertia ring surrounding and spaced from the hub, and compressible resilient damping means such as a layer of compressible elastomeric material under a limited compression and a retaining means such as a metallic band disposed between the core member and the inertia member. The damping means is chemically adhered to both the retaining means and the core member or the inertia member and the retaining means is fixed in an interference fit to either the outer peripheral surface of the core member or the inner peripheral surface of the inertia member. The damper is particularly useful for mounting on the end of a crankshaft of an internal combustion engine.
