  • Publication number: 20070164002
    Abstract: A method of manufacturing a hardfaced plate (1) by applying a cladding (3) to a surface of a substrate (40) by arc welding, the method comprising moving the substrate (4) and a continuous arc welding wire feed (23) relative to each other, wherein the welding wire feed (23) is in a direction generally transverse to said given direction of relative movement. The welding wire can be fed by a welding gun (23) to the surface of the substrate (4) to be clad from one side of the given direction of relative movement at an acute angle to the surface of the substrate (40).

  • Patent number: 4363171
    Abstract: This coilable rule and its replacement cartridge comprise a tape mounted in a cartridge adapted to be detachably mounted in turn in a casing. The cartridge constitutes an integral unit and consists of a central post rigid with a lateral flange and of a spool comprising a lateral flange adapted to pivot about the central post. The lateral flange of the central post is formed integrally with an element for retaining the inner end of the tape on the spool, and this element extends over the outer peripheral wall of the spool, from which it is spaced, and is parallel to the central post. Lug means are also provided for holding the cartridge against rotation in the casing.

  • Patent number: 4238083
    Abstract: A winding drum for a flexible tape comprises two side faces and peripheral wall defining spaced first and second grooves. The first groove has a longitudinal axis parallel to the axis of rotation of the drum and has an opening at one end thereof that is defined by one of the side faces and is closed at the other end thereof. First and second pins are located respectively in the first and second grooves whereby an end of a flexible tape may be bent to form a loop and passed around the first pin in the first groove and the tape then passed over the peripheral wall of the drum and the free end of the tape and passed around the second pin in the second groove before being wound around the drum.

  • Patent number: 4189107
    Abstract: A measuring tape is contained in a housing which includes an electric motor for rotating the spool on which the tape is wound to wind the tape up. A safety mechanism is provided to switch the motor off when the tape is fully wound, and a reduction mechanism is provided between the motor and the spool, so that the spool can rotate more slowly than the motor. The instrument is portable and has a handle with which an operating switch may be associated. The motor may be battery driven.
