  • Patent number: 7140273
    Abstract: Wire processing apparatus (10). The apparatus (10) includes an electronic memory for storing values commensurate with the lengths from a terminal end of the wire (21) to the positions of cuts to be made through the plurality of coating layers (X,Y,Z), and a mechanical store for controlling the depths of each cut. Threaded shafts (84, 84, 84) are mounted upon a turret which is movable both rotationally and axially with respect to the wire being processed. The electronic memory is preferably adapted to receive inputs representing parameters of sequential steps in each of two processing operations, and to perform such operations alternately, upon different wire ends, upon successive actuation's of the apparatus (10). A further feature of the apparatus is an arrangement permitting the force exerted on the wire (21) by a pair of gripping members (32, 32) to remain substantially constant over a range of different wire diameters.

  • Publication number: 20050223852
    Abstract: Apparatus for supporting a coaxial cable, or the like, and effecting cutting and stripping operations to remove a portion of one or more layers which concentrically cover a central conductor. A single blade, having a circular cutting edge, is moved in an orbital path about the cable with rotary motion of a motor translated to orbital motion of the blade through a plurality of plates relatively movable on crossed, linear, roller bearings and a shaft eccentrically affixed to the motor with the shaft and motor axes at an acute angle to one another. The shaft extends through a spherical bearing mounted in one of the plates, thereby translating nutational motion of the shaft to orbiting motion of the plate which is directly attached to the blade. A unique clamping assembly includes a pair of jaws having respective gear racks engaging a single pinion gear on a motor output shaft for linear movement of the jaws by equal distances in opposite directions.

  • Patent number: 6176155
    Abstract: Wire processing apparatus particularly adapted to perform operations on wires having a central conductor with multiple, coaxial covering layers. The apparatus includes an electronic memory for storing values commensurate with the lengths from a terminal end of the wire to the positions of cuts to be made through the plurality of coating layers, and a plurality of threaded shafts individually movable by manual manipulation of mechanical elements to control the depths of each cut. The threaded shafts are mounted upon a turret which is movable both rotationally and axially with respect to the wire being processed. The electronic memory is preferably adapted to receive inputs representing parameters of sequential steps in each of two processing operations, and to perform such operations alternately, upon different wire ends, upon successive actuations of the apparatus.

  • Patent number: 5578802
    Abstract: A keypad structure includes a printed circuit board with a plurality of miniature push-button switches mounted thereon in a predetermined array with the operating surfaces of the buttons substantially in a common plane. An array of holes is formed in a layer material termed a spacer member which is releasably secured to the pcb with the wall defining each hole surrounding a corresponding switch. A plurality of openings is formed in a template sheet which is adhesively secured to the spacer member. The openings in the template sheet are of larger diameter than the holes in the spacer member and provide a positioning guide for dome-type spring members which are supported on the spacer member and overlie the respective operating surfaces of the switch buttons. A flexible, outer sheet is adhesively secured to the outer surface of the template sheet, capturing the springs between the spacer member and the outer sheet.
