Abstract

This cutting mechanism includes a sharpened disk 20 carried and rotatably disposed with respect to a swing arm 22, and a mandrel 24 rotatably , disposed within a fixture 26. The mandrel is adapted to carry an endless belt 28 so that the disk 20 may be moved into close proximity with mandrel 24 for splitting belt 28, as it is drawn between mandrel 24 and disk 20.

Cutting Mechanism for Endless Belts

This cutting mechanism includes a sharpened disk 20 carried and rotatably disposed with respect to a swing arm 22, and a mandrel 24 rotatably , disposed within a fixture 26. The mandrel is adapted to carry an endless belt 28 so that the disk 20 may be moved into close proximity with mandrel 24 for splitting belt 28, as it is drawn between mandrel 24 and disk 20.

Arm 22 is swingably disposed on shaft 30 carried by fixture 26 and is held from movement axially on shaft 30 by collars 32 fixed on shaft 30. Mandrel 24 is positionable in vertical slots 34 provided in fixture 26 and has a pair of collars 36 fixed thereon for holding belt 28 in proper position for slitting.

After belt 28 has been placed on mandrel 24 and mandrel 24 is placed in slots 34, swing arm 22 along with disk 20 are swung downwardly to bring disk 20 into belt cutting position. Belt 28 is then manually pulled, and this causes rotation of mandrel 24 and of disk 20 with a concomitant slitting of belt 28 into two portions by disk 20.

Set screw 38 and clamp 40 acting against adjustment screw 42 hold arm 22 and disk 20 in position, so that the edge of disk 20 is very nearly in contact with the exterior surface of mandrel 24 for the proper slitting action on belt 28.
