  • Patent number: 10875206
    Abstract: A method for creating and using a repositionable adhesive coated slip sheet is described herein. This repositionable adhesive coated slip sheet attaches to a worktable and temporarily anchors a substrate and its cutouts while the substrate is cut. The method principally comprises the steps of placing a layer of adhesive onto the top surface of a binding layer, placing the binding layer onto a worktable, placing a substrate onto the layer of adhesive, cutting the substrate with a blade, and then removing the cut substrate from the layer of adhesive, wherein the parts cut therefrom are prevented from moving, slipping, or falling off of the worktable during the cutting process. This allows the substrate and the cutouts cut therefrom to be removed from the worktable at the completion of the cutting process without damage to the worktable, cutter, or substrate.

    Abstract: According to the present invention there is provided a method of projecting images of sewing patterns as templates onto fabrics. The contemplated application for the invention includes sewist making an article of clothing. As such, images of the patterns to be sewn are stored in a storage device for latter access from a computing device that sends them to a projecting device for projection. The projecting devices is then positioned, graduated, calibrated, and set for optimizing the cutting of the fabric. Thereafter, the operator may interactively modify the projected image, and as such initiates the cutting of the fabric, in accordance to the projected sewing patterns.

  • Patent number: 10703004
    Abstract: A method is provided for automatically modifying the cutting paths for parts to be cut out from a flexible material by automatically moving a cutter tool along predetermined cutting paths. The cutting paths are associated with each part being defined by a succession of cutting segments forming a polygon. Two cutting segments are identified and belonging to two different parts for cutting out in the material and for which a maximum distance condition between these cutting segments is satisfied. Two cutting segments are verified for being situated facing each other, and that no other cutting segments lie between the two cutting segments. A common cutting path for the two cutting segments is computed, and a common cutting path is connected to the cutting paths of the two parts for cutting out to obtain modified cutting paths for the two parts for cutting out.

The infill removal station inverts the strip and redirects the strip back toward the front of the vehicle, after agitating the strip to extract the infill. After redirecting the strip toward the front of the vehicle, the vehicle drives over the unfilled strip. Meanwhile, the extractor/collector device moves the extracted infill rearwardly to a bag located in a trailer.

  • Patent number: 8567293
    Abstract: A method of severing a band (11) which encloses a blank stack (10), wherein the band (11), preferably in the region of a band station (19), is severed by a cutting means, in particular a knife (23), and is then removed from the blank stack (10). According to the invention, it is provided that the blank stack (10) is pushed together such that the band (11) is spaced apart from the blank stack (10), at least in certain regions, and that the band (11) is then severed in the spaced-apart region by the cutting means. The invention also relates to a corresponding apparatus for implementing the method.

  • Patent number: 8479626
    Abstract: An apparatus to hold, store and cut extra wide rolled materials includes a long rectangular enclosure having a guided cutter and is capable of holding one (1) or more rolls of sheet materials for cutting to an exact length. During cutting, the rolled material is pulled out and placed over a cutting platform that runs along the length of the enclosure. A circular cutting blade being smoothly guided along a slot which extends along a length of the apparatus cuts the material. Additional storage compartments are provided which may be affixed to outer end portions of the apparatus to hold small associated items such as tape, thread, writing instruments, craft items, and the like.

  • Publication number: 20130152751
    Abstract: A cutting-off method whereby is disclosed, whereby when a workpiece is intended to be cut off by use of an endless band saw blade suspended between a driving wheel and a driven wheel, the workpiece is cut off by imparting to the driving wheel a forced oscillation so that a phase of a longitudinal oscillation which occurs to the bandsaw blade near the driving wheel is substantially inverted to a phase of a longitudinal oscillation which occurs to the bandsaw blade near the driven wheel.

  • Patent number: 8453546
    Abstract: A cast-cutter (10) for removing a cast from a patient comprises a body (12) and a cutting assembly (18) secured thereto, wherein the cutting assembly (18) includes first and second relatively moveable cutting members (40, 44). Each cutting member (40, 44) defines a cutting edge (46, 48) which when in use cooperate to cut by a shearing action. Each cutting member (40, 44) also defines an inner face (60) and are adapted to maintain the inner faces (60) in non-engaging relationship to provide clearance therebetween in order to prevent material binding between the member (40, 44) during a cutting operation.

  • Patent number: 8387499
    Abstract: A method for automatically cutting a workpiece comprising the steps of moving a workpiece along its longitudinal axis, positioning a cutting blade by rotating the blade about a vertical axis, positioning the cutting blade by rotating about a bevel axis, and vertically moving the blade into cutting contact with the workpiece, thereby stab cutting the workpiece and creating a bevel cut. The method may also comprise moving the blade along a transverse axis. Further steps may include moving the cutting blade along a transverse axis simultaneous to moving the workpiece along it longitudinal axis, thereby creating a scarf cut.

  • Patent number: 8383196
    Abstract: In a method in which a cut line is formed on one surface of a planar glass material, and the cut line is allowed to extend in the thickness direction of the glass material, thereby cutting a glass substrate from the glass material, the cut line is selectively formed on a surface having relatively small surface waviness out of two opposing surfaces of the glass material. In the case of a glass material formed into a planar shape on a molten metal, the surface which has come into contact with the molten metal is selected as the surface having relatively small surface waviness. When a disk-shaped glass substrate is cut from the glass material, cutting is performed under conditions where either one of the thickness and the radius of the glass material and the maximum height of surface waviness of the glass material satisfy a predetermined relationship.
