  • Patent number: 6604737
    Abstract: The utility workstation selectively positions a suspended workpiece before a typically seated operator. It is height adjustable and accepts various types of holding and support attachments that allow various kinds of workpieces to be positioned at various angles and rotations. It provides local light and magnifier sources as well as display and storage options for tools and supplies useful for working with a workpiece. It allows a workpiece to be moved laterally from a fully retracted position, where the workpiece is out of the way of someone getting out of or into his or her seat, to a working position, where the workpiece is suspended at a preferred location and orientation before the operator. It is designed to be operated from the left side or right side of a chair, easy chair, stool, couch, or other type of seating means.

  • Patent number: 6530677
    Abstract: A method and apparatus for instructing a procedure for manufacturing a wire harness are provided. A plurality of work positions is simultaneously illuminated with the visible light, and a procedure related to each work position is displayed with an optical image formed by scanning the work positions. Optical images may be consecutive numerical values formed of the visible light in correspondence to the order of works, or an outline drawing G of the wire harness WH may be displayed with an optical image formed of the visible light. Thereby, it is possible to display the order of stages without detecting the progress of an operator's work one by one. Further, utilization of the optical image allows the order of stages to be recognized easily and prevents errors from being made. Furthermore, a first holder pivotally holds a light source on a first axis. A light source-driving member for pivoting the light source on the first axis is provided on the first holder.

  • Patent number: 4536991
    Abstract: A worktable comprises upper and lower members that fit together in sliding relation with a rectangular extension of the upper member protruding into a recess in the lower member. The recess is larger than the extension so as to permit the upper member to slide across the surface between the upper and lower members. Eight adjustment screws are mounted in opposing pairs in the lower member so that each pair bears on a different side of the extension. By backing off on some screws while advancing others, the upper member of the worktable may be moved with respect to the lower member to adjust the position of the workpiece with respect to the grinding wheel. The use of pairs of opposing adjustment screws permit both rectilinear movement of the upper member depending on the amount of advancement of each pair of screws and rotational movement when the screws in each pair are advanced by different amounts.
