  • Patent number: 7540726
    Abstract: By cutting-machining a side face of a scroll wrap with a non-rotational tool, swells in the perimeter direction have a smaller size. Thus, compressed gas is prevented from leaking between relatively slidable side faces of the respective wraps of the stationary scroll and the slewing scroll. This configuration provides a scroll compressor that has a higher accuracy and thus high compression efficiency and low noise are realized.

  • Patent number: 6622599
    Abstract: A precision optical element is described, such as is used in thermal imaging systems in the infrared, manufactured by means of single point machining, with both of its surfaces having an aspheric form, with or without the addition of a diffractive optics pattern. The element is produced while held in a novel vacuum chuck, whose support surface has a width in the radial direction significantly less than the size of the element, and which is aspherically machined to match the aspheric first surface of the element. A method whereby such an element can be produced by means of single point machining, such as diamond turning or fly cutting, is also described. Also described are new optical system designs and applications using such double-sided aspheric elements, thereby providing significant improvement over currently available optical systems.

    Abstract: A broaching cutter comprises a first shaft coupled to a cutter bit-carrying second shaft in such a way that the second shaft rotates when the first shaft rotates and is also radially displaceable with respect to the first shaft so that the second shaft revolves about the axis of the first shaft in a preselected pattern. A rotor on the end of the first shaft carries a connector in a slot in such a way that the connector is free to slide within the slot. The connector is attached to the second shaft and to a cam follower. As the connector slides, it displaces the second shaft radially with respect to the axis of rotation. The first shaft rotates within a stationary holder that has a cam race encircling the first shaft. The cam follower follows the cam race in the stationary holder, thereby varying the radial displacement of the connector. Thus, square, hexagonal or other shaped holes can be formed in a workpiece depending on the shape of the cam race.

  • Patent number: 4638694
    Abstract: Pistons and cylinders are manufactured to an oval shape, which is defined as being an oval where the ratio of the major axis to the major axis is between 1.1:1 and 3:1. Pistons and cylinders are generally finish machined by relative rotation between the tool and the workpiece and movement of the tool in a defined path to produce a finished profile. In general, however, conventional machine tools cannot machine such oval profiles at commercial production rates because of the excessively high tool accelerations which this would involve and of which the conventional machine tools are not capable. Disclosed are a machine tool for matching such oval pistons in which an oval piston blank is rotated in a path such that, when each part of the piston surface reaches the tool, it is at a constant datum position. Thus the tool considers that it is machining a surface of constant radius and normal tool movements can be performed.
