  • Patent number: 4391303
    Abstract: An article for forming a tubular protective cover around telephone and electrical cables comprising a generally flat band of material having opposite upper and lower surfaces and end edges, one of the surfaces being planar, the other surface being provided with a plurality of spaced grooves therein. Each groove is of V-shape and has inclined sides which intersect to form an apex proximate the planar surface to form a hinge where the band can be folded to enable the band to surround a cable. The other surface of the band is relatively flat between the grooves to define a continuous planar surface. At the grooves, the band is formed with elevations projecting beyond the plane of the surface in continuation of the sides of the grooves such that with the band folded at the hinges, the elevations at the sides of the grooves approach one another to provide a stiffening effect for the folded band around the cable.

  • Patent number: 4387815
    Abstract: A form-retaining container made of synthetic plastic material and apparatus for its manufacture in which a plastic material is fed in liquid state onto a male member to provide a layer on the male member constituting a blank for the container. The layer is cooled to prevent crystallization of the material. The thus cooled blank is placed into a mold cavity having an interior configuration corresponding to the desired outer shape of the container to be produced. The layer is inflated into conformity with the mold cavity. The configuration of the mold cavity is such that the blank undergoes biaxial stretching in a middle region of the container by at least 1.5 times while the mouth and part of the bottom of the container will be formed by biaxially stretching the blank less than 1.5 times. The inflated blank is then heated until curing is completed and then the blank is removed from the mold.

  • Patent number: 4381279
    Abstract: A process for the manufacture of articles from a thermoplastic of polyester or polyamide type, preferably of polyethylene terephthalate, the element consisting of an edge part which surrounds a body in an arrangement in which the latter is sunk relative to the edge part. The element is formed from a blank of mainly amorphous material or from a material having a crystallinity of less than 10%. The blank consists, for example, of a flat plate, a blank shell or the like. The body or parts thereof are shaped by stretching the blank until that material flows which is located within the material sections of the blank, which form the edge part in the element, the material stretched up to flowing in the body assuming a crystallinity of between 10% and 25%, while the crystallinity in the material in the edge part and in the unstretched parts retains its original value of less than 10%. At least the body of the element is expanded against warm mould walls until the final shape of the particular article is obtained.

  • Patent number: 4381277
    Abstract: A method for providing a container with one or more layers of barrier material during the production of the container from a thermoplastic. A preform (10) is stretched in its axial direction, generally an amount corresponding to the total axial stretching required for conversion of the preform to a container, after which the stretched preform (11, 13) is provided with one or more barrier layers (12, 14), and the preform is then heated and converted to a container. In one embodiment, the axially stretched preform (15) is produced by assembling axially stretched part-preforms (13a,b) covered with one or more barrier layers. The combined preform is then converted to a container.

  • Patent number: 4378656
    Abstract: An anti-clamping device for a vehicle door driven in opening and closing movements by a turnable shaft in turn driven by a transmission rod. The anti-clamping device comprises a telescopic element interposed in the transmission rod and including first and second telescopically engaged parts having retracted and extended positions. A control member is mounted on one of the parts and can be in the form of a projecting pin while spaced switches are mounted on the other of the parts. The pin projects between the switches to operate a selected one thereof depending on whether the parts are telescopically retracted or extended to reverse the direction of door movement. Thereby when an obstacle is present in the path of travel of the door, stress in the transmission rod will be accompanied by telescopic retraction or extension of the parts depending upon whether the door is in its opening or closing movement which produces closure of one of the switches to reverse the direction of door movement.

  • Patent number: 4376024
    Abstract: Ironing, drawing and/or other non chip-producing process is used to form a metal workpiece into an article which is then coated with a protective layer. The lubricating agents used in the non-chip-producing process are removed from the surfaces of the formed article in conjunction with the coating of the article with the protective layer. This is done by dissolving the lubricating agents in the liquid which is used in the application of the protective layer and which contains one or more bonding agents which form the protective layer after the treatment is complete. In one preferred embodiment, at least that protective layer which is closest to the material of the container is applied by electrolytic deposition.
