Abstract: A punch and die device for working such as punching of a pipe material is disclosed, of which internal die means can easily be inserted into a pipe material even if an open end of the pipe material to be worked has burrs inward extending therefrom, and in which it is easily detected whether the internal die means is pushed toward a lateral side or lateral sides of the pipe material and thereby firmly held. The punch and die device for working a pipe material comprises: external punch means located outside a pipe material P, and internal die means K inserted in the pipe material for cooperation with a punch 30 of the external punch means to work the pipe material P; the internal die means K being divided into two parts in a direction orthogonal to that of reciprocating motion of the punch 30 of the external punch means, one 1 of the parts having working function and the other 2 having no working function, the non-working part 2 being forward and backward movable in the opening direction, i. e.
Abstract: Driving means in particular for a cutting-off device with a rotationally held cutting-off tool. In order to provide the cutting-off tool with high acceleration in a simple manner, a sledge hammer (6) is provided that cooperates with an impact surface (5) arranged on a rotationally held cutting-off tool (4). Furthermore, a cam (2) is arranged on at least one driven rotating inertial body (1) for acting upon said sledge hammer, whereby said inertial body (1) is driven at an essentially constant, optionally adjustable speed.
Abstract: This invention provides a method of and apparatus for punching apertures in the walls of square sectioned steel tube. An elongated square sectioned mandrel is supported horizontally by and is connected at a rear end to roller decking so that a square tube can be fed onto the mandrel and can be used to feed the tube off the mandrel step by step, while between steps the tube is punched at the front end of the mandrel by a punch die on a punch head which moves laterally of the mandrel and into a punch recess in the mandrel. The punch head also has a guide pin which engages a guide recess in the mandrel before the punch die engages the punch recess to ensure that the punch die and punch recess are accurately aligned and that the apertures will be evenly spaced along the length of the tube.
Abstract: According to the invention, a rotor is provided having a cylindrical core and a protective can closely fit and secured with the core. The core is provided with two axially spaced, annular reliefs spaced inwardly from points of welding which secure the can and core and connected by at least two circumferentially spaced, axial reliefs. To effect removal of the can, a cutting tool is extended through the can along the extent of the reliefs. With the cuts completed, access sections are defined and are separable from the core. The remainder of the can, including the weld material, can be machined off using conventional techniques.

Abstract: A tooling assembly for use with a mechanical impact press includes a pair of die blocks which effect cutting of rods, bars and tubes by the rapid misalignment of aligned apertured tools. Realignment is achieved by a reciprocable cam which also limits the extent of misalignment. Means are provided for clamping or dragging the end of a workpiece stock upstream from the prospective cutting plane. A wedge shaped recess adjacent to the aperture of the movable tool or die block provides a high degree of uniformity in workpiece length as measured at various points of a given workpiece. Where the workpiece stock is tubular, a floating mandrel is disposed within the workpiece in the upstream tool or die block while a reciprocable mandrel supports, receives, resizes and discharges the tubular workpiece.
Abstract: A device for cutting lengths of tubing from a longer tube utilizes an external pair of cutting dies and an internal pair of punches. An eccentric relative motion ("shimmy") of the cutting dies results in the desired cutting of the tube. The punches are inserted into the tube from the end of the tube from which the length of tubing is to be cut. A restraining arrangement prevents the punches from moving farther along the tube than is desired, while a punch positioning mechanism prevents movement of the punches toward the open end of the tube. Thus, the internal punches are accurately positioned with respect to the external cutting dies. A centering arrangement is utilized to insure coaxiality of the punches.
