For Rotary Tool Patents (Class 83/698.41)
  • Patent number: 9057958
    Abstract: The present invention provides a method and apparatus for forming a printing form from a photosensitive element to form a relief pattern. The method and apparatus thermally develop the photosensitive element by heating a composition layer of the element to cause a portion of the layer to liquefy and providing a development medium to the element to remove the liquefied composition. A conformable layer is disposed between the photosensitive element and a base support, which improves the compressibility and the contact between the photosensitive element and the development medium. The method and apparatus improve the efficiency of the removal of liquefied portions from the photosensitive element and the uniformity of the relief pattern formed.

  • Publication number: 20120011980
    Abstract: A quick-change system for blades of a meat trimmer, which is used as a cutting tool in the stripping or cutting of meat and the like, includes a handle with a connecting housing to which a ring-like blade holder is attached. A ring-like blade is held inside the blade holder and rotated by a driving gear. The connecting housing has arm-like projections on both sides, on which the blade holder is mounted and has a separation point between the projections. The ring-like blade holder is fixed to a projection in an operating position by the head of a releasable bolt. When the bolt is loosened, the blade holder is bent open from an operating position to a blade change position in which the ring-like blade can be changed without tools in a very short time, without the necessity of readjusting the blade holder after its return to the operating position.

  • Patent number: 8069758
    Abstract: A head section for a rotary cutting device includes a body portion that includes a blade passage defined between a blade entrance opening and a blade exit opening. A blade fastening mechanism is positioned in the blade passage and includes a blade engaging member. The blade engaging member is biased by a biasing mechanism to extend across the blade passage at a blade install position. The blade engaging member is movable against the bias to clear the blade passage. A blade having a mount aperture proximate an insertion end thereof is secured to the body portion when the mount aperture occupies the blade mount position and the blade engaging member extends through the mount aperture. The blade can be installed in and removed from the head section without tools, simply by advancing the blade through the blade passage.

  • Patent number: 8015904
    Abstract: The present invention provides a die holder with one or more pre-located recessed areas or voids into which cutting dies can be quickly and easily inserted and secured. The die holder mounts quickly to the cylinder, and can be quickly removed for alternative operations. The die holder can be made according to the operator needs for different types, sizes and positions of dies. Unused voids can be filled with ‘blank’ blocks to achieve a consistent or uniform surface height for the full 360 degree area of the die cylinder. The present invention further provides a removable scrap control apparatus that is not attached permanently to the die cylinder on which it is used, which permits the use of a multiple blade die or a plurality of single blade dies on the same die cylinder without requiring permanent holes, slots or other means to accommodate the scrap control apparatus on the die cylinder or anvil cylinder.

    Abstract: A device of double saw blades includes a first saw blade, a second saw blade, a driving device and security system. The first saw blade and the second saw blade rotate around a rotation axis oppositely, and respectively include a blade body and a cutting element mounting on a periphery of the blade body. The driving device connects with the first saw blade and the second saw blade, and has a driving diameter. The security system has a security distance provided between the blade bodies. The security system includes two rigidity enhancers. The rigidity enhancers respectively include a saw blade adapter mounting on an outer side of the blade bodies. The saw blade adapters respectively have a predetermined diameter to enhance a rigidity of the blade bodies, so as to reduce deformation thereof when working. The diameters are no more than the driving diameter.

    Abstract: A noise dampener hub assembly for mounting a circular blade on the drive shaft of a circular saw including a spindle hub assembly having an inside noise dampener disc member, a separate outside noise dampener disc member and a spanner hub. The tubular hub member is externally threaded and the spanner hub is internally threaded so that they can be screwed together. The respective inner surfaces of the inside noise dampener disc member and the outside noise dampener disc member have radially spaced annular grooves that removably receive respective O-rings which dampen the noise produced during operation of the circular saw. A pair of pins extend outwardly from the inside noise dampener disc and pass through aligned apertures in the circular saw blade. These pins have different diameters for telescoping into the respective different sized alignment apertures. Also the respective pins and apertures are oriented 170° from each other so that the circular saw blade will always be installed at the same position.
