Abstract: Disclosed is a corrugated paperboard box making machine, which comprises: a slotter for slotting a corrugated paperboard sheet to form slots, a die-cutter disposed downstream of the slotter, the die-cutter including a die cylinder with a punching die and an anvil cylinder; a cutting blade for cutting, in cooperation with the anvil cylinder, the corrugated paperboard sheet slotted by the slotter, into two small-size corrugated paperboard sheets, along a direction perpendicular to the conveyance direction; and a lifting and lowering mechanism for lifting and lowering the cutting blade in such a manner as to allow a position of the cutting blade with respect to a corrugated paperboard sheet being passing through the anvil cylinder to be changed between a cutting position where the cutting blade is permitted to cut the corrugated paperboard sheet, and a non-cutting position where the cutting blade is precluded from cutting the corrugated paperboard sheet.
Abstract: A rotary cutting device includes a body having a cutter blade with a cutting edge and a pressure roller mounted relative to the cutter blade. The cutter blade is configured to rotate about a rotational axis. The pressure roller is rotationally fixed. The cutter blade and the pressure roller are positioned relative to each other such that pressure is applied to a material fed therebetween. As the cutter blade rotates relative to the pressure roller, the pressure applied to the material being fed therebetween allows for a width of material to cut by a cutting edge of rotating cutter blade. An embossing roller may be used in place of the cutter blade to emboss material. The device also includes guide for guiding material into the machine, pressure adjustment for pressure applied to the material, and rotational speed control. A method for using the rotary cutting device is also disclosed.

Abstract: One example embodiment includes a continuous feed variable depth die cut. The die cut includes a housing, including a first opening configured to allow kinesiology tape to enter the housing and a second opening configured to allow the kinesiology tape to exit the housing. The die cut also includes a roller inside the housing, where the roller is configured to rotate as the kinesiology tape passes over the roller and a die formed on the outer surface of the roller, where the die includes a cutting edge for cutting the kinesiology tape and where the cutting edge is formed in the shape of the strip of kinesiology tape to be cut. The shape is approximately rectangular and includes rounded exterior corners. The die cut further includes a surface inside the housing, where the kinesiology tape passes over the surface when the kinesiology tape is cut.
Abstract: A vehicle follow-up control apparatus includes a distance sensor sensing an actual vehicle-to-vehicle distance from a controlled vehicle to a preceding vehicle, a vehicle speed sensor sensing an actual vehicle speed of the controlled vehicle, and a controller for calculating a desired vehicle speed to be achieved in the controlled vehicle. The desired vehicle speed is calculated in accordance with the actual vehicle-to-vehicle distance, the relative speed and a control gain which is adjusted in accordance with the relative speed.
Abstract: A cutoff system for exterior siding which includes a flying punch and shear. The system includes a main carriage which is adapted to reciprocate and, in one direction of travel, move at the same speed as the siding to be cut. A pair of punches are then actuated to form the hanger and butt notches at the lateral edges of the siding. Upon withdrawal of the punches, the travel of the main cylinder is slowed such that the siding travels away from the punching area. Upon sensing the notched areas, the main carriage is again moved to travel at the same speed as the siding. The speed is timed such that the center of the notches is located below a shear. This shear is then actuated to form a single parting line across the siding. The carriage is then retracted to await the next cycle of the system. As such, with each cycle of the system, the notches are formed in the trailing and leading edges of adjacent panel segments, and the leading panel segment cut from the continuous siding.

Abstract: An arrangement for removing and separating into pieces wrapping wire (3) encircling a bale (2) or like package in individual, closed loops includes a first wire clipping device (6) for severing the wire in each separate loop at a location (29), to form a wire length; a second wire clipping device (14, 16, 17) for dividing the wire length into smaller pieces; and feed means (10, 12'16, 18) for advancing the wire length to the second wire clipping device. The latter device (14, 16, 17) comprises at least one cutting bit (16) projecting radially outwards from a motor-driven rotor (14) and whose cutting edge generates a cylindrical surface, and further comprises a stationary counter cutting bit (17). The feed means includes a part-cylindrical guide surface (18) which co-operates with the cutting edge to advance a wire length introduced between the guide surface and the rotor (14) to the counter cutting bit.
Abstract: A cutting means in an apparatus for continuously manufacturing spiral strip piping, fed in unbroken lengths, consisting of an upper, driven knife wheel (4) and a lower, freely rotating, circular, substantially horizontal support roller knife (20). The knives (4,20) are arranged on a table (22), swivellable in relation to the travel of the strip (1) and displaceable perpendicularly to the travel of the strip (1). Before cutting, the angle of the upper knife (4) to the travel of the strip (1) is adjusted, by means of the swivellable table (22), to the desired pipe diameter for providing square pipe ends.
Abstract: There is disclosed a board cutting machine in which a plurality of grooves are cut in a board such as a board of insulating duct material to permit the board to be folded into a multi-sided shape. As strips are cut from the board an extractor unit extracts the scrap strips and directs them to a chopping unit where the scrap is chopped into small pieces.
