933 results about "Rotation velocity" patented technology

Angular velocity, also called rotational velocity, is a quantitative expression of the amount of rotation that a spinning object undergoes per unit time. It is a vector quantity, consisting of an angular speed component and either of two defined directions or senses.

Variable magnetic resistance unit for an exercise device

An automatically adjusting magnetic resistance unit for an exercise device such as a bicycle trainer, in which the degree of resistance is automatically and non-linearly adjusted in relation to the rotational speed of a rotating member caused by the input of a user. The rotating member may be in the form of a flywheel having a number of supports extending between a hub and a rim. The supports define longitudinal grooves which slidably retain magnets that are biased inwardly toward the hub by biasing members. An electrically conductive member is located adjacent the flywheel. As the flywheel rotates in response to rotation of the bicycle wheel, the magnets interact with the conductive member to establish eddy currents that provide resistance to the rotation of the flywheel. The speed of rotation of the flywheel increases as the speed of rotation of the bicycle wheel increases, and centrifugal forces act on the magnets to cause the magnets to slide outwardly along the grooves in opposition to the bias of the biasing members. The outward movement of the magnets causes outward movement of the eddy current forces, to increase the resistance provided to rotation of the flywheel and the bicycle wheel. The variable resistance due to the increased or decreased rotational speed of the flywheel is smooth, based on the constant interaction of the counteracting forces of the biasing members and the centrifugal forces acting on the magnets.

Axial door operator

The present application discloses an axial operator that is configured for use with a door assembly. The axial operator comprises a rotatable operator output member that rotates about an operator axis, the operator output member being constructed and arranged to be operatively connected within the door assembly such that the operator output axis extends generally vertically. An electric motor has a rotatable motor output member that rotates about the operator axis. The motor is constructed and arranged to selectively rotate the motor output member about the operator axis. A reduction transmission is connected between the motor output member and the operator output member. The reduction transmission is constructed and arranged such that the transmission rotates the operator output member at a lower rotational speed than a rotational speed at which the motor rotates the motor output member and applies a higher torque to the operator output member than a torque which the motor applies to the motor output member. The reduction transmission comprises (a) an orbit gear, (b) a planet gear carrier, and (c) a planet gear. The motor is adapted to be communicated to a controller so as to receive a door moving signal therefrom and being further adapted to selectively rotate the motor output member in response to receiving the door moving signal to thereby rotate the operator output member so as to move the door panel with respect to the doorway as aforesaid.

Fabricating low distortion lap weld construction

A method of making a low distortion frame construction, the construction having joint regions formed by first and second overlapping members defining a lapped interface, the joint regions being comprised of material that can be converted to a solid state deformable plastic condition by friction heat, comprising: (a) providing a stir friction welding tool having (i) a rotatable thermally conductive body presenting a shoulder to engage the joint region for storing friction-generated heat, and (ii) a friction generating pin rotatable with said body about a pin axis and selectively extendable from the shoulder to progressively penetrate the overlapping members as the joint region in contact with the pin becomes plastic; (b) placing the tool shoulder against the joint region with the pin axis transverse to the lapped interface and spinning the body while progressively extending the pin at a rotational speed effective to generate friction heat that converts the adjacent material of the joint to a plastic condition allowing the spinning of the probe to stir such plastically converted material; and (c) controlling the depth of penetration of the spinning probe while translating the tool across the joint region to perfect a friction stirred welded zone that extends through the interface and between the overlapping members to provide a welded joint that is exceptionally strong in shear.

Method and apparatus for uniformly slicing food products

A method of cutting food products into uniform thickness slices using a rotary cutting wheel fitted with radially extending, circumferentially spaced, tensioned and forwardly pitched bevel sharpened cutter blades rotating in a cutter plane and extending between a central hub and an annular rim and wherein the blades produce a first velocity of advancement of unsliced food product across the cutting plane for each revolution of the cutting wheel and a given slice thickness during slicing of food product advanced through the cutting plane. The method includes fitting an appropriate number of blades to the rotary cutting wheel to produce the given slice thickness of food products at the operation rotational velocity of the cutting wheel and rotating the cutting wheel at an operational rotational velocity to produce the first velocity of advancement of unsliced food products through the cutting plane of the cutting wheel. The food products are fed to the cutting plane of the blades of the cutting wheel at a second velocity such that the second velocity corresponds closely to about 101.5% of the first velocity as a result of a selection of configuration and tension of the blades so that they have maximum stiffness and resistance to both longitudinal and transverse flexure during cutting of food products. A cutter blade is disclosed wherein the leading edge portion of the blade member is longer than the maximum distance between fastener apertures at each end area of the blades and wherein the straight trailing edge portion of the blade member is shorter than the minimum distance between aperture diameters.

Hydraulic control system for a continuously variable transmission

InactiveUS20010023217A1Less frictional lossIncrease line pressureGearingRoad transportControl systemRotation velocity
A transmission mechanism of the continuously variable transmission comprises a set of primary and secondary pulleys between which a belt is provided. The CVT control unit is operable to supply line pressure directly to a secondary pulley and also to a primary pulley via a shift control valve associated with a step motor in such a manner as to control a transmission ratio. The CVT control unit calculates a standard step position of the step motor corresponding to the target transmission ratio and provides a command signal representative of a difference between the standard step position and the current position of the step motor. The shift control valve actuated by the step motor controls the pressure to be supplied to the primary pulley. The actual transmission ratio obtained on the basis of the rotation speeds of the pulleys is compared with the target transmission ratio. If the shift is not accomplished, the CVT control unit commands additional step number. Unless the shift to the HI side is accomplished at the time when the additional step number reaches the threshold value, the line pressure is increased so as to achieve the shift. Thus, the transmission normally operates with a low line pressure sufficiently to reduce a frictional loss at the contact areas of the belt and the pulleys, thereby resulting in an enhanced fuel economy.
