Dies And Tools Patents (Class 59/60)
  • Patent number: 6378283
    Abstract: A process and apparatus for manufacturing multiple conductor cable having improved transmission parameters. The apparatus includes a rotatable alignment die having a plurality of apertures. At least one strand of the multiple conductor cable is caused to traverse an aperture of the rotatable alignment die. A rotation motor causes the strand to rotate about its elongate axis, and a translation motor causes the strand, or the cable, to traverse along its elongate axis. The multiple conductors are brought into a predetermined mutual mechanical alignment that is calculated to produce a cable having at least one improved transmission parameter. The cable can additionally include a support member adapted to maintain the conductors in the mutual mechanical alignment. A binder is applied to the cable to maintain the conductors in the predetermined mutual alignment.

  • Patent number: 4910955
    Abstract: A horseshoe trimming device for securement to a farrier's anvil has a base provided with a downwardly extending rectangular post dimensioned for insertion into a rectangular socket on the farrier's anvil. A clamp screw clamps a portion of the anvil against the rectangular post. An anvil plate is secured to an adjustment plate which is pivotally mounted on an upper surface of the base. Opposed set screws bear against opposite side edges of the adjustment plate for adjusting the attached anvil plate in opposite rotational directions. By tightening a pivotal mounting bolt extending through the adjustment plate, the attached anvil plate may be secured in a selected adjusted position. The anvil plate has an arcuate edge dimensioned for cooperation with the arcuate cutting edge of a shear blade to trim end portions of a horseshoe. The arcuate shear blade has an elongated rectangular shank received within a rectangular guide tube for vertical reciprocal movement.
