  • Patent number: 7469851
    Abstract: Described is an adjustable roll drive including a fixed drive cylinder having a fixed drive gear, a fixed intermediate gear rotated by the fixed drive gear, a movable intermediate gear rotated by the fixed intermediate gear, and a movable driven cylinder having a movable driven gear wherein the movable driven gear is rotated by the movable intermediate gear. A linkage system is employed to maintain a substantially constant distance between axes of successive gears and an adjustment mechanism to vary a distance between the fixed drive cylinder and the movable driven cylinder. The continuously adjustable roll drive may be adapted further for use in grain grinding operations.

  • Publication number: 20080011119
    Abstract: A cam or rail follower having a shaft, a rotational inner portion rotating about the shaft, and an outer racer rotating about the shaft, the outer racer being constructed from a self-lubricating material. A system having a cam follower including a shaft and an outer racer, the outer racer being constructed from a self-lubricating material and a cam, the outer racer of the cam follower being in contact with the cam, the contact causing the outer racer to rotate about the shaft of the cam follower, the self lubricating material being softer than a material used to construct the cam.

  • Patent number: 7263867
    Abstract: A flexible bushing for a cam follower, comprising a substantially rigid inner sleeve including an inner cam follower engaging surface, a length of the inner sleeve being greater than a thickness of a ram into which the flexible bushing is inserted, a substantially rigid outer sleeve including an outer ram engaging surface, a length of the outer sleeve being substantially equal to the thickness of the ram, the inner and outer sleeves being substantially concentric, and a shock absorbing flexible material disposed between the inner and outer sleeves.

  • Patent number: 6199420
    Abstract: A machine for the forming of the body member of two-piece metal cans uses a carrier upon which are mounted six or more pairs of ram assemblies. The rams are driven by cam action on a fixed track and the rams each carry a pair of wheels which ride on the track. Each of the rams is rectangular in cross-section, to counteract centrifugal force, and is an aluminum alloy coated with a Teflon-ceramic coating so that the ram is light in weight and does not require a liquid lubricant.

  • Patent number: 6164109
    Abstract: A can-making necker machine to form the bottom and neck of two-piece metal cans has pusher rams. Each pusher has a cam follower which follows a track or groove. The cam follower is not lubricated but instead has rolling surfaces which are coated with a low-friction high-impact diamond film.
