Abstract: In an embroidery sewing machine, a value setting screen on a display indicates parametrical items about the movement of an embroidering frame, i.e., “sewable area” and “stand-by position”, as well as parametrical items about the sewing operation, i.e., “thread-breakage sensitivity” and “number of stitch-back stitches”. An operator enters or designates optimum values for those parametrical items by operating numerical keys and cursor moving keys on a keyboard, and registers a name to be assigned to a set of values for those parametrical items. The set of values for those parametrical items are stored in a floppy disk in relation to the registered name. By simply designating one of the registered names correspondingly to a material to be sewn, the optimum values for the parametrical items are retrieved simultaneously and set for the sewing operation.

Abstract: The present invention relates to a door of the type having two parallel guide rails, a plurality of guide means (10, 50), which are adapted, when the door moves, to be guided by and run along the guide rails, a plurality of neighboring door leaf panels (2), which at opposite ends are connected to the associated guide means (10) of said plurality of guide means, and a bottom panel (4) which is pivotally connected to an adjoining panel (2) of said door leaf panels and, via releasable joints, connected to two associated bottom guide means (50) among said guide means.

Abstract: An information reading device for an optical disk has a peak level detector, a coupling capacitor, a comparator, and a resetting circuit. The comparator produces an on-track signal based on a detected peak signal from the peak level detector. Information tracks on the optical disk are searched based on a count of pulses of the on-track signal. The resetting circuit has a boundary detector and a switching circuit. The boundary detector produces a boundary signal indicative of the boundary between recorded and unrecorded regions on the optical disk. In response to the boundary signal, the switching circuit discharges stored charges of the coupling capacitor in the unrecorded region, causing detected peak signals in the recorded and unrecorded region to vary in amplitude across a common reference level.
Abstract: A head rest sleeve for receiving a head rest support rod having a diameter within a known tolerance range is formed of a resilient material and has a body having an axial bore. Integral with the inside of the body and disposed thereabout are at least two pairs of compressible crush ribs which protrude radially and extend the length of the body. The distance of protrusion of the ribs corresponds to the minimum possible diameter of the support rod. Located between each pair of ribs and integral therewith is a web which protrudes radially a distance corresponding to the maximum possible diameter of the support rod. When the support rod is inserted into the sleeve, the rod frictionally engages the crush ribs uniformly along its length and, when the diameter of the support rod is greater than the minimum possible diameter, compresses the ribs a uniform distance to allow the support rod to be moved in the sleeve.
Abstract: A package made from a flexible pleated sheet with a central region reinforced by the addition of a second pleated sheet. Folding and unfolding is made easier by having a central area with semi-extended pleats with a side area having flattened pleats.
Abstract: A transdermal therapeutic system (TTS) which contains as the active ingredients an oestrogen and a gestagen or a gestagen or androgen as well as an acrylate adhesive and, as resorption promoters, the two substances oleic acid and 2-(2-ethoxyethoxy)ethanol.

Abstract: A driver for use with a horn radiator includes a heat conductive hollow base that confines an upwardly opened cavity for receiving a yoke. The yoke has an outer wall surface that defines a first clearance with the base, and an inner wall surface which is formed with a through hole that extends to the outer wall surface. A permanent magnet is received in the yoke, and defines a second clearance with the inner wall surface of the yoke. A flux guiding plate is superimposed on the permanent magnet, and is disposed in the yoke to define a gap with the inner wall surface of the yoke. The second clearance is communicated fluidly with the first clearance via the through hole, and is in fluid communication with the gap. A diaphragm has a top portion disposed above the flux guiding plate, and an annular extension extending into the gap. A voice coil is connected to the annular extension of the diaphragm, and is disposed in the gap.
