  • Publication number: 20090107314
    Abstract: [Problems] In a conventional texture cutting, little attention was paid to the accuracy of the angled or the curved texture cutting, and the accurate cutting could not be conducted. [Mean of Solving Problems] A contact point between the top edge of a lower blade 75 and a rotation blade 67 is made to intersect with a center axis C with an error range of ±3 mm. Thereby, the accuracy of the angled or curved cutting is improved. Especially, the center of the rotation blade is significantly desirable to be positioned ahead of the center axis in the traveling direction, thereby enabling the smoother cutting.

  • Patent number: 7032486
    Abstract: The description refers to a mill saw with a saw gate (3) driven via a slider-crank drive (4), whose parallel saw blades (5), which cut in only one stroke direction, are provided with a bias, and with a feed conveyor (6) for the stock to be cut, which is driven intermittently during the cutting stroke of the saw gate (3) as a function of the cutting speed by means of at least one motor (10) separated from the slider-crank drive (4) and connected to a controlling system (12). To achieve favorable construction features, it is suggested that the controlling system (12) connected to a signal transmitter (17) for a preset position of rotation of the slider-crank drive (4) controls the motor (10) in dependence on the response of the signal transmitter (17) according to a stored control program for one conveying step adaptable to the respective stroke frequency of the slider-crank drive (4).

  • Patent number: 6668692
    Abstract: The invention consists of a process for the control of the motorized feed drive for the movable workplace table of a machine tool, in particular the rolling carriage of a circular saw. The manual force that is applied by the operator in direction of the feed is sensed and converted to a corresponding measured value. From this a set value for the feed rate of the rolling carriage is created and from that is derived a control signal for the drive.

  • Patent number: 6634282
    Abstract: An elongated frame made up of rails, and having a main endless belt conveyor for carrying parts of sandwiches, and completed sandwiches through the machine. A slicer carriage is mounted on and above the frame, having an endless slicer belt means parallel with the main belt for gripping the sandwiches between the belts for conveying them. The slicer belt means is made up of transversely spaced belts, forming a space therebetween, and a slicer blade is operable in the space between the belts. The main belt has a longitudinal groove in its outer surface, to receive the edge of the blade to enable the blade to cut entirely through the sandwiches and in slicing them. The slicing carriage, and the slicer blade, each individually, are vertically adjustable for accommodating sandwiches of different thickness.
