  • Patent number: 6347900
    Abstract: A yoke for a universal joint is produced by press forming of a steel sheet, and mutually concentric circular holes are formed by press punching at the tip ends of a pair of arms opposite to each other. After the circular holes are punched by inserting a punching punch through the tip ends of the arms in the state that the backs of the arms are supported by a die relative to the punching direction and the outer peripheries of these arms are restrained by a restraining member in the vicinity of a portion in which the circular holes are to be formed, a finishing punch is inserted from the direction opposite to the punching punch into the punched circular holes, thereby improving the accuracy of the circular holes.

  • Patent number: 5440958
    Abstract: An automatic device for stacking sheets of paper is improved for increasing the amount of stacked sheets. An image tracing output device is so constructed that a sheet exiting from a sheet exit portion is guided to the exterior of a fixed rod of sheet stacking unit by a plate for putting sheet flow in good order. When the forwarded amount of the sheet attains approximately a half of a predetermined length, a contacting portion supported by swinging rods descends to be brought into contact with the sheet. The contacting portion continues to descend further to be brought into contact with the fixed rod. As the result, the sheet is hung also on the inner side of the fixed rod. When it attains a predetermined length, it is cut and the swinging rods return to their initial position.

  • Patent number: 5179880
    Abstract: A stacking device which may be used with plotters, printers, copiers, or other paper or material handling machines for stacking single sheets of paper or material exiting such machines, and cutting and stacking a plurality of sheets from continuous sheets of paper and material exiting such machines. A motor mounted on a paper or material handling machine is used to rotate a drive shaft causing two arms to rotate. A stacking rod is attached to the rotating arms. Sheets of paper or material exiting the machine are stacked on top of the stacking rod. The arms are initially rotated to an upward position so that a sheet exiting the machine is draped over the stacking rod. The motor then rotates the arms to a downward position where the sheet hangs vertically draped over the stacking rod. This procedure may be repeated for the purpose of stacking other sheets on the rod. Switches may be used to control movement of the arms. A cutter is used to cut individual sheets from a continuous sheet exiting the machine.

  • Patent number: 4437369
    Abstract: Sheet material 14, such as a continuous supply of terry cloth towel 16, is moved along its length through a path and toward a cutting station 15 where it is cut into lengths 139. The sheet material is formed with bands 166 extending across its length, such as bands of reduced thickness, and the sheet material is cut in these bands. The bands are detected by rollers 144, 145 at opposite edges of the sheet material as the bands approach the cutting station 15, and each edge portion of the sheet material is fed by feed rollers 51, 52 independently of the other edge portion into the cutting station so as to cause one side of the sheet material which may lag the other side to be properly located at the cutting station prior to cutting the sheet material.

  • Patent number: 4387590
    Abstract: A swatch remover for sampling a web such as fabric or cloth moving in open width from a loom to take-up mechanism is illustrated as having an upright transverse frame member which is pivoted outboard of the winder adjacent each end thereof, and which may be pivoted downwardly for facilitating the extending of a length of cloth for swatch removal and later rejoining as by sewing.
