  • Patent number: 4864906
    Abstract: A core slabbing machine for the removal of paper wound on a mill roll core, to thereby permit reuse of the core. The machine includes a horizontal core-receiving mandrel and a carraige which moves horizontally back and forth above, and aligned with, the mandrel. The carriage carries a freely rotatable cutting wheel which is forced downwardly by a pneumatic cylinder onto the paper to be removed from a core. Each horizontal pass of the rotary cutting wheel cuts through a number of layers of paper determined by the force on the cutting wheel. This action is automatically controlled and continues until the cutting wheel reaches the core surface exterior after a number of cutting passes. The freely rotatable cutting wheel exerts a force on the core and paper substantially at right angles to the core and its supporting mandrel, thus obviating the need to anchor the core relative to the mandrel.

  • Patent number: 4151706
    Abstract: Disclosed is a plate-like yarn stripper device for use in removing staple fiber yarns from rotatable elements of circular cross-section, such as in the removal of yarn wraps underwound beneath a spindle blade to anchor the yarn threadline in the doffing and donning of cops on a ring spinning frame. The stripper is formed with a central hole defining stripping edges at a surface of the plate, these edges being spaced from the yarn-wound element by a prescribed distance such that when the element is rotated the wound yarn will buffet the edges and be abraded, weakened and cut or otherwise severed in the stripping action. Personnel safety is enhanced in use of the stripper by the absence of peripheral sharp edges, bristles or other abrasive external surfaces.

  • Patent number: 4106377
    Abstract: A method for stripping bonded insulation from a rectangular wire. The wire is inserted into a wire-stripping mechanism through a pair of gripping jaws. On actuation of the mechanism the jaws are triggered to grip the wire. At least one knife is moved orthogonally to the wire surface to engage and penetrate the wire to be stripped. Then the knife is moved longitudinally along the length of the wire to strip insulation and a thin chip or sliver of metal from the wire. On the return stroke, the jaws are opened to release the stripped wire.

  • Patent number: 4020726
    Abstract: A roll splitter apparatus is described for splitting a roll of paper or other sheet material using a cutter blade which moves substantially horizontally toward the roll core. A pair of generally horizontal extending holding arms are provided with hooks on the ends of such arms which engage a shaft extending through the core of the sheet roll to hold such roll while the cutter blade is moved radially inward toward the core to cut the roll. The cutter blade is driven by a fluid cylinder and has guide members which slide along the holding arms to guide the movement of such blade. The holding arms and blade are raised and lowered by means of another fluid cylinder in order to accommodate rolls of different diameter. A knife guard is provided which covers the cutter blade in its retracted position, such guard being raised and lowered by cams provided on the blade.
