  • Patent number: 5918719
    Abstract: A slab transport tire roller includes a tire which is diminished in thermal stress. A tire assembly disposed at each of outer peripheral portions of a pipe for passing cooling water therethrough includes the tire adapted to contact a slab, support members connecting the tire to the pipe, and rotation preventing means engaging the tire with the support members to render the tire rotatable with the support members.

  • Patent number: 4303139
    Abstract: An electronic weighing apparatus comprises a slit plate provided to be displaceable in association with the weight of an article being placed on a weighing pan. A photosensitive device is provided in the vicinity of the split plate for generating a train of pulses responsive to the slits in association with the displacement of the slit plate. The slits are provided on the slit plate such that the pulses are obtained from the photosensitive device only if and when the amount of displacement exceeds that corresponding to a predetermined weight value. The slit plate is further provided with a magnetic shield plate at the position before the photosensitive device detects the slits for the first time when the slit plate is displaced by virtue of an article.

  • Patent number: 4295915
    Abstract: A label handling apparatus comprises a label issuing machine (2) for weighing an article, printing predetermined data, such as the measured weight, price per unit weight and article price, on a label on the basis of the measured weight, and issuing the printed label, a transfer device (40) for transferring the issued label on a belt conveyor (42), and a label sticking device (9) for sucking and retaining the transferred label at a label retaining port (15) by a negative pressure produced by an air current and producing a positive pressure in the label retaining port (15) by an air current with a predetermined timing to blow off the sucked and retained label so as to stick it to a predetermined place on the article. Such labels are prepared in advance with a viscous adhesive agent applied thereto and temporarily retained on a mount sheet, from which they are stripped during their travel from the label issuing machine (2) to the label transfer device.

  • Patent number: 4285411
    Abstract: An electronic weighing apparatus comprises a load cell which provides an analog voltage associated with the weight of an article being placed on the apparatus. The analog voltage is converted into digital data responsive to each timing pulse by means of an analog/digital converter. The digital data is loaded in a digital display buffer responsive to each timing pulse and is then displayed in a digital manner by a display. On the other hand, a stable state detecting circuit compares the current digital data obtained from the analog/digital converter with the preceding digital data and determines the weighed value having reached a stable state upon coincidence of both the current and preceding pieces of the data. The timing pulse and thus the digital data is prevented from being loaded in the display buffer responsive to the output from the stable state detecting circuit, whereby the display buffer continues to maintain the digital data at the time point when the stable state is reached.

  • Patent number: 4077475
    Abstract: Load control for engine of vehicle for agricultural work with rotary working implement, for avoiding too much deviation of the working depth while preventing the engine from stopping under heavy overloading. The rotary working implement is automatically raised and lowered in accordance with the results of sensing the engine rotation and of the actual working depth. For prevention of the engine failure, the rotary working implement is unconditionally raised whenever engine rotation below a predetermined value is sensed.

  • Patent number: 4020912
    Abstract: An indicating apparatus for indicating measured values in a digital manner, comprising a graduated plate adapted to be moved in accordance with the weight of an object to be weighed, the graduated plate being provided with numerical characters for indicating the weight in a digital manner and displacement indicating marks for detection of the displacement of the graduated plate, the numerical characters and displacement indicating marks being arranged in the direction of movement of the graduated plate, two light sources opposed to the graduated plate and individually correlated with two adjacent numerical characters, the two light sources being controlled so that either one of them is turned on in response to a signal indicating the displacement of the graduated plate represented by the associated displacement indicating mark thereby to indicate the measured value in a digital manner.
