  • Patent number: 7833367
    Abstract: A strip-shaped supporting adhesive tape is joined to a ring frame, and then is stuck with a cutter blade such that the cutter blade penetrates the adhesive tape. In a state where a cutting edge of the cutter blade is brought into contact with a tape joined side of the ring frame, thereafter, the adhesive tape is cut along a contour of the ring frame while electric current is fed to each of the cutter blade and the ring frame. Herein, a sensor monitors a conduction status in real time.

  • Patent number: 7152515
    Abstract: Cutter suitable for artificial flower stems. Typically, plastic coated wire stems are cut with hand cutters to various lengths in preparing artificial floral arrangements. The invention requires far less physical effort by the operator than is required when using conventional wire cutters. In the preferred use of the preferred embodiment of the invention, an uncut stem is inserted crosswise through two elongated holes in the guard housing. When the cutter jaws open, the stem is pushed into the open jaws and is cut to a desired length from the flower end when the jaws close. In the preferred embodiment of the invention a gear reduction motor drives an arm and cam roller assembly. That cam roller forces the top handle of the cutter downward causing the jaws to close. As the cycle continues, the cam roller raises and a spring causes the jaws to open.

  • Patent number: 5035166
    Abstract: A sawmill includes a band saw mounted on a trolley. The trolley carries the band saw back and forth across the length of a log to cut it into boards. A log supporting table is adjustable to accomodate logs of various size. The trolley rails descend incrementally after each cut to reposition the band saw blade for the next cut. The length of each increment, or board thickness, is user selectable by way of an indexable detent bar and limit switch combination. The thickness across the board is held uniform by a pressurized bellows that maintains the proper blade strain in the band saw blade.

  • Patent number: 4620468
    Abstract: In order to drive a punching machine electrically, with the aid of a double-armed rocker (70) a translational motion for the compression beam (10) is generated on the one hand, and a rotary motion for an opposing drive on the other hand. On the one side, the double-armed rocker (70) is driven by a rotating clutch shaft (50) by way of a crank gear (60-66) and, on the other side, a chain link (73) serves to control the compression beam. The opposing drive is operated by means of a one-arm rocker (75) and, also, by means of a chain link (76). To ensure the execution of an exact cycle, an engaging and disengaging claw clutch (31, 36) is present. The cycle is maintained by a cam disk arrangement (51) on the one hand, and a coupling groove (37) on a coupling box (32) with a coupling bolt (38), on the other hand. The above provides the electric drive for a rectilinear punching machine for punching sheets of paper for mechanical binding systems.

  • Patent number: 4604929
    Abstract: A guillotine assembly is provided wherein a blade is insertable between two halves of an anvil to cut a paper web. The blade is provided with teeth which engage triangular grooves in a resilient member of the anvil which is pressed against a rigid anvil plate. Points on the teeth first penetrate the web. Thereafter, tooth mid-sections form a series of slits in the web. Thereafter, points of contiguity between the teeth jam the slits to sever the web. The teeth each enter one of the grooves in the resilient member for the points of contiguity to engage and displace the resilient member in the final stage of cutting.

  • Patent number: 4362076
    Abstract: A cutting apparatus for an electrostatic copying machine includes a fixed blade having a straight cutting edge, a rotary shaft mounted for rotation on the frame of the machine, and a rotary fixed to an carried by the rotary shaft, the rotary blade having a spirally curved cutting edge. A wrap spring clutch is capable of transmitting rotation of a continually rotating gear to the rotary shaft and rotary blade. The wrap spring clutch is prevented from operation by a control cog of a double cog member. An inclinable member operates the double cog member to release the wrap spring clutch to enable rotation of the rotary shaft and rotary blade. The double cog member has a rotation lock cog which stops the wrap spring clutch after a predetermined rotation of the rotary shaft and rotary blade.

  • Patent number: 4156377
    Abstract: A single fluid power operated piston connected to a tool operating arm pivoted intermediate its opposite ends, undergoes movement through a predetermined stroke between limit positions to alternately perform punching and shearing operations at spaced stations along a common support bed of a metal working machine. The tool operating arm is held in one of its limit positions by the piston device under control of a selector valve while a foot pedal operated valve is displaced against a spring bias by the operator to effect powered displacement of the piston device to the other limit position in order to effect either a punching or shearing operation depending on the position of the selector valve. A shearing operation may also be performed through a second shear arm pivotally connected to the frame and actuated by the piston device.
