  • Publication number: 20090165620
    Abstract: A punch arrangement for punching holes in a moving web of a plastic film has a pivoted yoke mounted on a fixed bracket above the plastic film. An air cylinder or other actuator is mounted on the yoke and has a cutting head mounted on the rod of the cylinder. The cutting head is in registered alignment with an aperture on a support plate below the film. The film engages and swings the cutting head out in the film transport direction until the head rises out of contact with the film. Then a spring urges the yoke, actuator and cutting head back to their home position. A punch cycle can be carried out repeatedly on the film while the film is in constant motion.

  • Patent number: 5740709
    Abstract: A web-cutting arrangement uses two-stage cutting to produce a plurality of products from a continuous web (100), while ensuring that the web, and the products (125) cut therefrom, remain continuously guided and undamaged. The arrangement includes a leading cutting structure (170) which provides an initial partial cut (115) into the web. The partial cut (115) is made along a line (110) directed perpendicular to the web length, leaving a remaining uncut portion (120) along the line (110). Using web transport belts (140) located so as to overlap the cutout (or partially cut) portions of the web (100), the continuous web is moved in a direction parallel to the web length with the belts (140) pulling and guiding the web (100) around rotating cylinders (164, 166).

  • Patent number: 5365818
    Abstract: An improved hydraulic press has a hydraulic die that is pulled to move along a work path relative to the hydraulic press by a moving coil of material. After movement the hydraulic die engages the hydraulic press and the two begin to move together. With this arrangement, the moving material only need initially overcome the inertia of the hydraulic die. The moving hydraulic die has momentum when it engages the hydraulic press, and that momentum assists in overcoming the inertia of the relatively heavy hydraulic press. A relatively thin sheet material can thus be utilized to move both the die and hydraulic press.

    Abstract: A hydraulic press comprises a hydraulic drive for driving a die surface towards and away from a moving workpiece. The die surface and the hydraulic drive both move with the workpiece on rails. This is an improvement over prior art systems where only the die surface would move with the workpiece. In another aspect of the present invention a plurality of pickups also move with the hydraulic press. These pickups engage apertures in the workpiece to properly align cutting elements on the die with the workpiece. A control selectively actuates certain ones of the plurality of pickups to allow one to quickly change the size of elements formed by the die.

    Abstract: A readily adjustable machine which continuously produces corrugated flexible metal tubing from very light gauge metal and of various diameters. A warping ring receives therewithin a longitudinally corrugated narrow strip of formable metal of light gauge and warps the same helically to produce convolutions by means of a helical warping surface which extends into one of the longitudinal corrugations. The size of the tube produced can be varied by merely substituting a warping ring of a different size. A uniquely shaped pair of die-forming rollers have lock-seam forming surfaces which are adjustable relative to each other to provide variation in the degree to which the seam will permit and withstand axial torque. The lock seam is constructed to be symmetrical about the neutral axis of the corrugation and about the slope line of the common corrugation leg of adjacent convolutions which it constitutes.

    Abstract: In the disclosed apparatus, a movable die is slidably mounted about a guide base for translation along a longitudinal direction thereof. The movable die is spring biased toward one end of the die guide and accepts the continuous strip stock output of a rolled mill as fed by the mill. A straight rod is pivotally mounted to the movable die for translation therewith. The rod is slidably mounted about an adjacent stationary table which projects away from the movable die in the direction of movement of the strip stock. The rod includes a cut-off block fixedly mounted at a predetermined point intermediate the ends of the rod. As the strip stock advances through guide surfaces disposed about the table, it engages the block so that upon subsequent movement of the stock the movable die is translated with the stock. When a given surface of the die reaches a predetermined point, the surface engages a microswitch which closes the cutting blades of the movable die to sever a predetermined length of strip stock.
