  • Patent number: 10479643
    Abstract: Embodiments of a cable-winding apparatus are described herein. The apparatus may include one or more of a securing surface, a cable-winding channel, a coil spring, and a ratchet mechanism. The cable-winding channel may be rotatably connected to the securing surface. The channel may include a base and two or more walls extending at least partially perpendicularly from the base along opposite sides of the base. The ratchet mechanism may include one or more of a first face gear and a second face gear. The first and second face gears may each include a plurality of ratchet teeth. The spring may force the channel away from the securing surface. The ratchet teeth may prevent rotation of the channel with respect to the securing surface in a first direction while permitting rotation of the channel with respect to the securing surface in a second direction opposite the first direction.

  • Patent number: 9044124
    Abstract: A paper dispenser dispenses paper sheet by sheet. Paper projects from a dispenser housing in an operational position so that it can be pulled off from a supply roll by hand. The paper dispenser has a delivery roller driven by the web of paper that is being pulled. A stop which is moved from a rest position to a blocked position against the force of a return spring blocks the rotation of the delivery roller so that the sheet is torn off due to the pulling power, and is slowed down by a braking device when returning to the rest position. A post-delivery device is configured to further drive the delivery roller once the sheet has been torn off and completes the rotation in a time-delayed manner so that the paper projects from the dispenser housing and can be pulled again.

  • Patent number: 4203335
    Abstract: A device for feeding a ribbon of sausage support loops into a clip attachment apparatus is attached to the clip attachment apparatus and includes a body member with a guide track for directing the ribbon of loops from a storage reel to the clip apparatus. A reciprocating piston operated drive pin engages the ribbon to incrementally drive the ribbon forward into position for attachment of a single loop to a sausage casing. A knife separates the single loop from the ribbon upon attachment of the loop to the sausage casing by the clip apparatus. Subsequently, the drive pin is disengaged from the ribbon and is reversibly driven into position for re-engagement and further advancement of the ribbon. The movement of the drive pin and knife is controlled by a cam track in the body member.
