Title
(DE) DREHANTRIEB FÜR MIKROTOME.
(EN) ROTARY MICROTOME DRIVE
(FR) ENTRAINEMENT DE MICROTOMES ROTATIFS.
Abstract
(EN) Novel rotary microtome. In order to avoid the sticking and friction inherent in conventional slide mounts for the sample table, the invention provides a construction in which the sample table (4) is advanced by means of a parallogram linkage (1, 6, 8, 9). Retraction of the sample table (4) is effected without disturbing the leadscrew assembly (17, 18) by means of a lost-motion arrangement (9a, 9b).
(FR) Nouveaux microtomes rotatifs. De maniere a eviter le collage et la friction propres aux montages a coulisse, conventionnels pour la table a echantillons, la conception de l'invention assure une avance de la table d'echantillons (4) a l'aide d'un assemblage en parallelogramme (1, 6, 8, 9). Le retrait de la table a echantillons (4) s'effectue sans gener l'assemblage a vis mere (17, 18) a l'aide d'un dispositif a mouvements perdus (9a, 9b).
