  • Publication number: 20210315759
    Abstract: A powered spinning training/therapy apparatus for rotating a body of a person comprises a spinning apparatus. The spinning apparatus includes a chassis and a rotatable platform supported by the chassis for rotation about a vertical platform axis. The rotatable platform is configured to support the body of the person in an upright orientation with the vertical platform axis passing through the body of the person. A drive unit is operatively connected to the rotatable platform for rotating the rotatable platform about the vertical platform axis and has sufficient power to rotate the rotatable platform and the body of the person disposed thereon at a rotational speed of at least 0.1 RPM. A controller is provided for controlling the drive unit and thereby controlling the rotation of the rotatable platform.

  • Publication number: 20120305175
    Abstract: An apparatus for laminating a fabric material to a part broadly comprises a vacuum table, a cutting element, a plurality of pinch rollers, and a plurality of compaction rollers. The vacuum table receives the fabric material from a supply spool and retains the material while the cutting element cuts scrap material from the sides of the fabric material. The pinch rollers receive the fabric material after the scrap material has been cut and are configured to stretch the fabric material from a center line outward toward the edges of the material. The compaction rollers receive the fabric material from the pinch rollers and are configured to press the fabric material against a surface of the part.

  • Publication number: 20060089884
    Abstract: Systems and methods for exchanging information between a customer and a supplier are disclosed. In one embodiment, a system includes a customer system that receives customer data from a customer, and a corresponding supplier system that receives supplier data generated by the supplier. A communications system between the customer system and the supplier system permits data to be interchanged. In another embodiment, a method includes accessing one of a customer system and a supplier system, and identifying information residing on one of the customer system and the supplier system. A transfer of the identified information is then requested so that the identified information is transferred over the communications network. In still another embodiment, a method includes authorizing a user to gain access to the system, and selecting a desired functional operation on the system. The selected functional operation is then transmitted.

  • Publication number: 20050071041
    Abstract: A method and system for clamping a part in an automated tool to produce the part includes selecting a part for production on an automated tool driving a cutter. Deriving a clamping scenario defines the positioning of a plurality of clamps to fix the part to the automated tool. Generating a numeric controlled cutting program is based upon the part and the clamping scenario. Simulating the running of the numeric controlled program predicts interferences between the cutter and any of the plurality of clamps.
