  • Publication number: 20240083046
    Abstract: According to an aspect, there is provided a comb attachment for a blade system, the comb attachment comprising a rack component and a pinion assembly. The rack component is defined by one of a comb and a housing and comprises a rack. The housing is configured to attach to the blade system, and the pinion assembly comprises a pinion component defined by the other of the comb and the housing. The pinion assembly further comprises an axle retained by the pinion component, and a pinion disposed on the axle such that the pinion is rotatable with respect to the pinion component. The rack and the pinion are arranged to cooperate such that rotation of the pinion on the axle induces relative linear movement between the comb and the housing.

  • Patent number: 11858152
    Abstract: According to an aspect, there is provided a mounting assembly (12) for a hair cutting appliance, the mounting assembly comprising a head (16) for receiving a cutting unit (14); and a body (18). The head is mounted to the body by a four-bar linkage (20) having a coupler link (22) associated with the head, a frame link (24) associated with the body, and two arms (26) extending therebetween. The frame link is connected to each arm at respective joins (28), and the coupler link is connected to each arm at respective joins. Pivoting movement of the arms about parallel linkage axes (30) passing through each join permits rotation of the coupler link relative to the frame link about a virtual pivot (32). One of the coupler link and the frame link is a first link coupled to the arms by two-degree-of-freedom joins, thereby permitting the arms and the other of the frame link and the coupler link to further pivot in unison relative to the first link about a rotation axis (34) perpendicular to the linkage axes.
