  • Publication number: 20100199821
    Abstract: A tube cutting apparatus includes an inner blade (3), a drive shaft (1), a coupling shaft (2), a planetary gear (5), and a ring gear (6). The outer blade (4) has an inner peripheral surface which contacts an entire circumference of an outer periphery of a work W so as to cover a predetermined axial range of the outer periphery. The drive shaft (1) is rotatably supported inside the work W coaxially with the work W and defines a bore (11) therethrough at a position decentered by a predetermined amount within the drive shaft (1). The coupling shaft (2) is rotatably supported in the bore (11). The inner blade (3) is rotatably retained on an eccentric shaft (22) decentered at a front end portion of the coupling shaft (2) and is positioned inside the work W. The planetary gear (5) is positioned outside the work W and fitted on a rear end portion of the coupling shaft (2) coaxially and meshes with the ring gear (6).

  • Publication number: 20090223336
    Abstract: A cutting apparatus cuts a lateral wall of a manhole to form a hole on the lateral wall of the manhole. A circular pipe is harmonized with a main pipe and fixedly disposed therein. A rotary ring configured so as to be able to rotate along the periphery of an opening in the manhole about the axial center of the main pipe is mounted on the circular pipe. A pressurized fluid material or pressurized granular material is sprayed from a nozzle held in the rotary ring. The rotary ring is rotated and the lateral wall of the manhole is cut through along the periphery of the opening in the manhole by the fluid material or granular material sprayed from the nozzle. Since the cut portion is shaped as a circle symmetrical about the axial center of the main pipe, it is possible to form a circularly shaped cut-through part centered along the periphery of the opening in the manhole without accidentally breaking or damaging the lateral wall thereof.

  • Publication number: 20030221527
    Abstract: A piper cutter in the invention comprises a spindle, a fixing disk, a locating seat, a cutting member, a stop member, and two nuts. The locating seat can slide along the spindle to move the cutting member to a location at a level of a required length of a pipe body to be cut, whereby after a socket head of a power drive unit is locked on a fixed head of the spindle, the power drive unit is actuated to rotate the spindle with a lower portion of the spindle moved sideways to make the cutting member follow the rotation of the spindle to cut the pipe body accordingly, thus enabling the piper cutter to be convenient and quick in use; time-saving and labor-saving; adapted to cut pipe bodies with different thickness, bore sizes or length; and, provided with good working efficiency, economical benefits and high utility in industry.

    Abstract: A rotary saw having an adjustable depth guide with a handle portion attached thereto is provided. The rotary saw has a housing with a flange projecting outwardly therefrom. The depth guide includes a column with a vertical channel therein. The depth guide is coupled with the housing by slidably receiving the flange in the channel. A transverse bolt in the housing permits a user to prevent movement between the depth guide and the housing and thereby set a cutting depth. A handle portion is removably coupled with the depth guide such that movement between the depth guide and the housing does not alter the relationship between the depth guide and the handle portion.

  • Patent number: 4809775
    Abstract: A pipe cutting tool especially adapted to cut the interior of in-the-hole (I-T-H) drill pipe to allow subsequent removal of the pipe above the cut. Due to blasting damage, long sections of I-T-H pipe, otherwise in good condition, cannot be removed because the damaged section prevents the removal of the entire drill string. The tool is adapted to receive power from an external source and includes a frame, a pivoted motor and cutter, and an actuator for pivoting the motor.

  • Patent number: 4592260
    Abstract: The frame of the band cutting machine comprises an arm cross consisting of four arms. Each arm supports a fabric feeding roller which is movable back and forth of the arm. The movement of the rollers is carried out by means of threaded spindles extending each through a threaded block supporting a feeding roller. The spindles are interconnected at the center of their arm cross such that a rotating of one spindle by means of e.g. a handwheel will lead to a rotating of the other spindles and accordingly a simultaneous shifting of the fabric feeding rollers along the arms. The location of the upper edge of the circular knitted fabric being cut is scanned by a photoelectric apparatus. The circular cutting knives are supported for a translatory adjusting movement in direction of their center axis. The raising and lowering of these cutting knives is controlled by the output signals of the photoelectric apparatus.

  • Patent number: 4488465
    Abstract: A method and an apparatus are provided for cutting open-flanked V-belts, for example, for use as fan belts in automobiles. Individual V-belts are cut from a vulcanized roll formed from a plurality of layers of rubber and reinforcements. The roll is rotatably disposed on support devices, the support devices being so arranged that at least a portion of the rotation of the roll occurs in straight lines. The belts are cut in the straight line regions. Extremely uniform flank cuts are achieved thereby. The straight line is defined between two rollers, over which the vulcanized roll is forced and becomes tensioned. Cutting devices are moved into and out of the straight line portion of the rotational path of the roll in order to produce the flank cuts.

    Abstract: A device for trimming an edge of a tubular article to form a portion of a pantyhose prior to the sewing of a gusset. A support is rotatable about its vertically disposed central axis and cooperates with a mask supported independently of the support and normally stationary. The mask has slots with which trimmers in the form of electrical heating elements cooperate, each of the trimmers being movable independently of the other relative to the mask. The support is rotated relative to the mask and one of the trimmers penetrates and cuts the cloth by heat action and enters one of the slots in the mask so that during continued rotation of the support an edge of the article is trimmed from the remainder by the aforesaid trimmers to remain engaged about the support as an annular band.

  • Patent number: 4295401
    Abstract: Irradiated tubular rectangular fuel channels from a nuclear reactor are temporarily stored under water. In order to dispose of these highly radioactive channels and to ship them to permanent burial grounds, the channels must be placed in specially designed shipping casks under water. In order to reduce the volume of the channel so as to economize on the use of the casks, the channels are cut along their longitudinal edges to form four plates which are then nested before being placed in the storage casks, thereby greatly increasing the number of channels which may be stored in each cask. The cutting is done under water by an apparatus having four roller cutters which are positioned along the outside of the four edges or corners of a channel and are moved longitudinally down the channel edges in a reciprocating motion until the four side plates of the channel are severed.
