  • Patent number: 6698323
    Abstract: The present invention provides a web perforating apparatus which includes a system for detecting and indicating when a blade in the apparatus is broken, dull or otherwise not perforating the web. The apparatus is typically used with rewinders or other similar machines that produce perforated sheets of products, such as paper, using sets of stationary anvil blades and rotating perforating blades. The apparatus comprises at least one anvil including a blade holder and an anvil blade which is positioned within the blade holder. The blade holder is formed of an insulating material for electrically isolating the anvil blade from the machine frame of the rewinder. An electrical conductor is coupled to the anvil blade for supplying an electric current to the anvil blade from a current source. The apparatus also includes at least one grounded perforating blade for moving relative to the anvil blade and cooperating with the anvil blade to perforate the web at predetermined points along its length.

  • Patent number: 6176166
    Abstract: The electric haircutting machine includes an electrical drive motor, cutting blades driven by the drive motor, a device (22) for oiling the cutting blades and a device (20) for detecting an oil deficiency of the oil lubricating the cutting blades. The device (22) for oiling the cutting blades is connected with and responsive to the device (20) for detecting the oil deficiency, whereby the device for oiling the cutting blades is automatically activated to oil the cutting blades when the oil deficiency is detected. The device for detecting the oil deficiency detects whether or not motor current consumption, cutting blade vibration noise, haircutting machine sound level, cutting blade temperature, force acting on one of the cutting blades or drive motor rotation speed exceeds a corresponding predetermined threshold or not in order to establish the presence or absence of the oil deficiency.
