背景技术 BACKGROUND

本发明总体上指的是用于流体喷洒器的流体供料组件,更加具体的,指一种具有一次性杯和盖以及可再利用杯架和外盖的流体供料组件。 Refers generally to the present invention is a fluid supply assembly for a fluid dispenser, and more specifically, refers to a disposable cup and lid, and having a reusable cup holder and outer lid of the fluid supply assembly.

一些流体喷洒器,例如重力供给颜料式喷枪,具有安装在流体喷洒器的顶部的流体供料杯。 Some fluid sprayer, e.g., gravity feed paint spray gun having a fluid dispenser mounted on top of the fluid supply cup. 流体供料杯典型为可再利用的。 Fluid supply cup is typically reusable. 流体,例如颜料,通常在一个单独的容器中被测量和混合,然后被倒进流体供料杯中以供使用。 Fluid, such as pigments, normally in a separate vessel is measured and mixed, and then poured into the fluid supply cup for use. 用于测量和混合的容器必须是清洁的或者被清洗过。 The container for measuring and mixing must be cleaned or has been cleaned. 在喷射流体的过程中,使用者必须小心不要将流体喷洒器倾斜太厉害,否则流体将从流体供应杯中的空气口漏出。 In the process of ejecting the fluid, the user must be careful not to tilt the fluid applicator too much, otherwise the fluid from the fluid supply cup air port leakage. 此外,使用者不能使用所有的流体,因为流体在流体供料杯中移来移去,并且空气可能被吸进排出孔中。 In addition, the user can not use all of the fluid, since the fluid in the fluid supply cup move around, and the air may be sucked into the discharge hole.

已经做了一些尝试来提供一种在使用过程中不泄漏的流体供料组件。 Some attempts have been made to provide a course of not leaking fluid supply assembly. 例如,5,582,350号美国专利描述了一种带有顶部安装式颜料杯的手持喷枪,该颜料杯以3010的角度从枪体的后部延伸。 For example, U.S. Patent No. 5,582,350 describes a hand held spray gun with a top mounted paint cup, the cup of the pigment at an angle 30 10 extends from the rear of the gun body. 颜料可以被密封在颜料杯内的可折叠的封闭袋中,排除了对空气口的需要。 Pigments Pigments can be sealed within a closed cup collapsible bag, eliminating the need for the air port. 使用封闭的袋时,喷枪就可以以任何角度操作而没有颜料从颜料杯中的空气口泄漏出来。 When using a closed bag, the gun can operate at any angle without leaking out of the pigment from the pigment cup air port. 封闭袋的使用也使得更多的颜料得到使用。 Using a closed bag also allows more of the pigment to be used. 此外,因为袋使颜料杯保持干净,所以这减少了清理时间和成本。 In addition, because the pigment cup bag to keep clean, so it reduces clean-up time and cost. 因此,5,582,350号美国专利代表了本领域中的重要进步。 Thus, U.S. Patent No. 5,582,350 represents a significant advancement in the art.

6,588,681号美国专利描述了一种具有外部容器和内部衬垫的颜料杯。 U.S. Patent No. 6,588,681 describes a container having outer and inner liner pigment cup. 具有用来测量颜料组成带有标记的指示片,该指示片必须仔细地放置在内部衬垫和外部容器之间,从而使用于测量的标记被准确地对齐。 Having means for measuring the paint components marked with the indication sheet, the indication sheet must be carefully placed between the inner liner and the outer container, so as to be used for measuring the alignment mark accurately. 颜料杯包括带有外部密封圈的被密封在外部容器上的盖。 Paint cup includes a lid with an external seal is sealed on the outside of the container. 需要一个额外的支撑圈,从而颜料杯可以被使用到颜料混合器上。 Requires an additional support ring, which paint on a paint shaker cup can be use to. 此外,该颜料杯很复杂。 In addition, the pigment cup is complicated.

因此,需要一种能够提供改进的密封从而防止流体泄漏的流体供料组件。 Therefore, a need exists to provide an improved seal to prevent fluid leakage fluid supply assembly.

为了使用流体供料组件,一次性杯55被放置在可再利用杯架90内。 In order to use the fluid supply assembly, the disposable cup 55 is placed in the reusable cup holder (90). 一次性杯55的凸缘85与可再利用杯架90的凸缘120相配合。 Disposable cup 85 and the flange 55 of the reusable cup holder 90. The flange 120 cooperates. 凸缘85使一次性杯55位于可再利用杯架90的中心。 Flange 85 so that the disposable cup 55 is positioned the reusable cup holder 90 of the center.

任选地,在一次性杯55或可再利用杯架90上,或者同时在两者上,可以有标记230。 Optionally, the disposable cup 55 or the reusable cup holder 90, or on both simultaneously, can have a mark 230. 标记230可以被模铸在侧面,印刷在侧面,可以使用标签粘在侧面,或者可以采用某种其他的方式提供标记。 The indicia 230 can be molded in the side, printed on the side, glued to the side of the label can be used, or may take some other manner mark. 标记230可以被用来测量颜料组成。 The indicia 230 can be used to measure paint components. 可选地,一次性杯和可再利用杯架可以按刻度使用,或者使用量尺,来测量颜料组成。 Alternatively, the disposable cup and reusable cup holder can be used according to the mark, or use ruler to measure the paint components.

标记可以包括具有一个或者多个混合比率的混合刻度,例如4∶1混合比率,2∶1混合比率,3∶2∶1混合比率等。 Tag can include mixing scales with one or more mixing ratios, e.g. 4:1 mixing ratio, the mixing ratio 2:1, 3:2:1 mixing ratios. 每种混合比率可以包括一种或者多种不同的尺寸分割,从而可以使用每种混合比率测量不同量的流体。 Each mixing ratio may include one or more different partition sizes, also allows the mixing ratio of each measuring different amounts of fluid. 标记也可以包括一种或者多种通用刻度,即具有相等尺寸分割的刻度。 Tag may also include one or more universal scales, i.e., scales with equal size divided. 一种通用刻度可以具有20个相等的分割,另一种具有10个相等分割,第三种具有5个相等分割。 A common scale may have 20 equal segmentation, the other having 10 equally divided, the third having five equal division. 可以根据需要具有许多通用刻度。 May have many universal scales as needed. 多个通用刻度使得使用者可测量不同量的流体而不需使用混合比率刻度,混合比率刻度不是必须的。 Multiple universal scales so that the user can measure different amounts of fluid without using the mixing ratio scales, the mixing ratio of the scale is not required. 使用者可根据所需的流体量选择合适的通用刻度。 The user can select the appropriate universal scale depending on the desired amount of fluid.

可选地,测量指示可以将标记印在一个清晰的,薄的,平直的塑料片上。 Alternatively, the measurement instruction mark printed on a clear, thin, flat plastic sheet may be on. 在片的相对的两侧,所述塑料片具有连接部分,包括但不局限于突起和凹槽。 On opposite sides of the sheet, said sheet having a connecting portion, including but not limited to projections and recesses. 突起被插入凹槽中,塑料片形成了圆柱体。 The projection is inserted into the recess, a plastic sheet forming a cylinder. 测量指示可以被放在桌子上,一次性杯或者里面带有一次性杯的可再利用杯架可以被放在该圆柱体内部。 Measurement instructions can be placed on the table, or inside the disposable cup with reusable cup holder disposable cup can be placed inside the cylinder. 在颜料组成被测量后,将一次性杯(和可再利用杯架,如果有)从圆柱体中移出。 After the paint components are measured, the disposable cup (and the reusable cup holder, if any) is removed from the cylinder. 这可以通过凸缘提起一次性杯,或者通过脱开片上的突起和凹槽的连接来完成。 This may bring the disposable cup by the flange, or the connection of projections and recesses on the sheet by disengaging accomplished. 任选的在凸缘上的分开180度的可拆卸突出部可以辅助移出一次性杯。 Optionally 180 degrees apart on the detachable flange portion projecting out of the disposable cup can aid. 然后可将一次性杯放在可再利用杯架内(如果那里还没有)。 Then be placed in a disposable cup can be reused in the cup holder (if there yet). 测量指示提高了测量颜料组成的可视性和准确性。 Measurement instruction improves visibility and accuracy in measuring the paint components. 矩形的形状容易生产。 Rectangular shape is easy to produce. 测量指示消除了在一次性杯子或者可再利用杯架上准确放置标签的必要性。 Measurements indicate the necessity of eliminating disposable cups or reusable cup holder and accurate placement of the label. 它也使得比使用标签(即经过标签、可再利用杯架和一次性杯子)更加直接地观察到标记。 It also makes use of the label than (i.e., through the label, the reusable cup holder and disposable cups) is observed more directly labeled. 因为标记可以被恰好紧挨一次性杯放置,当使用较小直径的一次性杯时,尤其具有优势。 Because markers can be placed just next to the disposable cup, when using a smaller diameter disposable cup, is particularly advantageous. 最后,如果单独使用一次性杯,当倾倒和测量颜料时,由于没有使用可再利用杯架,因而其保持比较干净。 Finally, if the disposable cup is used alone, when pouring and measuring paint, because there is no use of the reusable cup holder, so it remains relatively clean.

所述塑料片可以以不同的尺寸形成,从而测量指示可以被用于不同尺寸的一次性杯。 The plastic sheet may be formed in different sizes, so that the measurement instruction can be used for different sizes of disposable cups. 较大的片可以用于可再利用杯架和/或较大的一次性杯。 The larger sheet can be used for the reusable cup holder and / or the larger disposable cup. 由较大的片形成的圆柱体具有足够大的尺寸,从而可再利用杯架和/或较大的一次性杯可放在里面。 Cylinder formed by the larger sheet having a sufficiently large size, whereby the reusable cup holder and / or the larger disposable cup can be placed inside. 较大的片可以包括标识,例如接近底部的虚线,来使得标记正确对齐,标记是否需要对齐取决于是否较大的一次性杯与可再利用杯架一起使用。 The larger sheet could include identification, such as a dotted line near the bottom, to make the correct alignment mark, whether alignment marks depending on whether the larger disposable cup and reusable cup holder used together. 当较大的一次性杯与具有腿的可再利用杯架一起使用时,可以使用整个片。 When the larger disposable cup and reusable cup holder having legs used together, can use the entire sheet. 当单独使用较大的一次性杯时(或者可再利用杯不影响对齐,例如因为它没有腿),片可以在标识处截断。 When the larger disposable cup used alone (or the reusable cup does not affect the alignment, e.g. because it has no leg), the logo of the sheet may be cut off. 这就使得标记在任何情况下都能正确对齐。 This makes the mark can be aligned correctly in any case. 当使用较小的一次性杯时,可以使用较小的片。 When using a small disposable cup, you can use the smaller pieces. 测量流体时,为了使标记和较小的一次性杯正确对齐,通常不将可再利用杯架与较小的一次性杯一起使用。 When the measuring fluid, and in order to make the marks smaller disposable cup is correctly aligned, is usually not the reusable cup holder and used with the smaller disposable cup.

在一次性杯55充满颜料后,将一次性盖130被放置在一次性杯55的顶部。 After the disposable cup 55 filled with paint, the disposable lid 130 is placed on top of the disposable cup 55. 一次性盖130的边缘140的角度γ大体上与一次性杯55的凸缘85的角度α相同,从而一次性盖130的边缘140与一次性杯55的凸缘85相配合。 Edge of the disposable lid 130 is substantially the angle γ 140 and the flange 55 of disposable cup 85 of the angle α the same, so that the edge 130 of disposable lid 140 and flange 55 of disposable cup 85 cooperates. 角度γ使得一次性盖130位于一次性杯55的中心。 Angle γ such that the disposable disposable cup lid 130 is located in the center 55. 一次性盖130的角度γ还使得在没有增加流体供料组件的整个外部直径的情况下,密封区域得以增加。 Disposable lid 130 also allows the angle γ in the fluid supply assembly without increasing the overall outer diameter of the case, the sealing area is increased.

在一次性盖130的内部的向下延伸的肋150安装在一次性杯55的内部。 The downward extending rib in the interior 130 of the disposable lid 150 is mounted in the interior 55 of the disposable cup. 在一次性盖130的四周可以有一个或者多个向下延伸的肋150,其在一次性盖55的内部四周部分延伸,或者所述肋可以在其整个四周延伸。 Around the disposable lid 130 can have one or a plurality of downward extending rib 150, which in the disposable lid portion 55 extending around the inside, or the rib may extend in its entire circumference. 向下延伸的肋150将一次性盖55保持在其位置,并且它也可以起密封作用。 The downward extending rib 150 of the disposable lid 55 remains in its position, and it can also act as a seal. 一次性盖55也可以具有向下延伸的密封条(bead)155,其与一次性杯55的凸缘85相接触以提高密封。 The disposable lid 55 can also have a downwardly extending sealing strip (bead) 155, which is in contact with the flange 85 of disposable cup 55 to improve sealing.

可再利用外盖170被放置在一次性盖130的顶部。 Reusable outer lid 170 is placed on top of the disposable lid 130. 通过使用可再利用杯架90的连接表面125和可再利用外盖170的辅助连接表面190,可再利用外盖170被紧密连接到可再利用杯架90上。 By using the reusable cup holder 90, the connecting surface 125 and complementary connecting surface of the reusable outer lid 170, 190, the reusable outer lid 170 is closely attached to the reusable cup holder 90. 合适的连接表面和辅助连接表面包括但并不局限于螺旋连接、凸缘和凹槽以及销和槽。 Suitable connecting surfaces and complementary connecting surfaces include, but are not limited to the coil connections, lugs and grooves, and pins and slots.

可再利用外盖170的外边缘180具有角度δ,其大体上与可再利用杯架90的凸缘120的角度β相等。 The reusable outer lid 180 of the outer edge 170 has an angle δ, which is substantially the reusable cup holder flange 90 is equal to the angle β 120. 可再利用外盖170紧密连接到可再利用杯架90上,使得一次性盖130的边缘140和一次性杯55的凸缘85夹一起,位于可再利用外盖170的边缘180与可再利用杯架90的凸缘120之间。 Reusable outer lid 170 closely attached to the reusable cup holder 90, such that the edge 130 of disposable lid 140 and flange 85 of disposable cup 55 together with the clip located in the reusable outer lid 170 and the edge 180 can be further cup holder 90 between the flange 120. 所述角度增加了夹紧力,但没有增加扭矩。 The angle increases the clamping force, but does not increase the torque.

一次性杯55的凸缘85的角度α、一次性盖130的边缘140的角度γ、可再利用杯架90的凸缘120的角度β和可再利用外盖170的边缘180的角度δ通常从各自的轴线开始落在大约10到大约70的范围内,典型的落在大约20到大约60的范围内,更加典型的落在大约30到大约50范围内,更加典型的还落在大约35到大约45的范围内。 The flange 55 of disposable cup 85 of the angle α, the edge 130 of disposable lid angle γ 140, the reusable cup holder 90. The flange angle β 120 and the edge of the reusable outer lid 170 is generally an angle δ 180 the respective axes began to fall from about 10 to about 70 range falls within the range of typical about 20 to about 60 , and more typically from about 30 to fall within the range of about 50 , more typical also fell within the range of from about 35 to about 45 .

当一次性杯55的凸缘85和一次性盖130的边缘140的角度α和γ等于某个角度时,即流体供料组件以该角度连接到颜料喷雾器上时,在使用中一次性盖大体上平行于颜料喷雾器的颜料轴,则几乎一次性杯中的所有颜料都可被使用。 As and when the edge 130 of disposable lid 140 of the angle α and the angle γ is equal to a flange 85 of disposable cup 55, i.e., when the fluid supply assembly to the paint sprayer is connected to the angle, in use, disposable lid substantially parallel to the axis of a pigment paint sprayer, almost all pigments disposable cup can be used. 因为一种典型的混合颜料的价钱高于1.00美元每流体盎司,所以减少颜料的浪费是一个重要的考虑因素。 Because a typical mixed pigment price higher than $ 1.00 per fluid ounce, so reducing waste pigment is an important consideration.

塞235可被用来覆盖一次性盖130上的接头160。 Plug connector 235 may be used to cover the disposable cover 160 130. 塞235可以安装在接头160的内部或者外部。 Plug 235 can be installed in the fitting 160 of the internal or external. 为了摇动或保存,可用塞230将接头160中的开口165密封。 To shake or save, can plug in the connector 160 230 165 seals the opening.

在一个实施例中,本发明的流体供料组件具有足够的强度,可被放入颜料混合器中,而不需任何额外的支撑。 In one embodiment, the fluid supply assembly of the present invention has a sufficient strength, the pigment may be placed in the mixer, without any additional support.

管道210被放入可再利用外盖170中的接头195内。 Conduit 210 is placed in the reusable outer lid 170 in the connector 195. 一个任选的过滤器220被插入管道210的开口215中。 An optional filter 220 is inserted into the opening 215 of the conduit 210. 可选地,过滤器220可以被放置在一次性盖130的接头160内或者可再利用外盖170的接头195内。 Alternatively, the filter 220 may be placed within the disposable lid 130 or the fitting 160 of the reusable outer lid 170 of the fitting 195. 如果需要,过滤器220可以具有凸出部分225,其可防止压扁的一次性杯55阻塞通到管道210的开口165。 If desired, the filter 220 may have a projecting portion 225, which prevents the collapsing disposable cup 55 blocking the opening 165 through the duct 210. 凸出部分225也可以被用来移出过滤器220,以进行清洗或者处理。 The projecting portion 225 can also be used out of the filter 220, for cleaning or processing. 如果需要,为了保存,管道210可以充满溶剂并且被塞上。 If desired, in order to preserve, conduit 210 may be filled with solvent and is stuffed. 如果一次性杯130上的接头160使用了内部接头塞235,那么相同尺寸的塞子还可以安装在管道中。 If the connector 130 160 disposable cups used the internal connector plug 235, then plug the same size can also be installed in the pipeline.

流体供料组件被连接到管道210上。 Fluid supply assembly is connected to the pipe 210. 管道210与可再利用外盖170和颜料喷雾器10相连接,并且提供从一次性杯55的内部75到颜料喷雾器10的流动路径。 Conduit 210 and reusable outer lid 170 and the paint sprayer 10 is connected to, and provide a flow path 10 from the interior 55 of the disposable cup 75 to the paint sprayer.

可以使用各种类型的管道,这对于本领域的技术人员而言是公知的。 Various types of pipeline, which for the skilled artisan is well known. 例如,2003年6月10日申请的,序列号为10/458,436,名称为“摩擦固定的颜料杯连接”的美国专利描述了一种合适的管道。 For example, the June 10, 2003 Application Serial No. 10 / 458,436, entitled "friction fixed pigment cup connection" US patent describes a suitable pipe.

图11-15显示了另一个合适的管道。 Figure 11-15 shows another suitable pipe. 管道可以是用于在颜料喷雾器10和外盖508之间连接的接合器505。 Conduit may be used for the adapter 505 between paint sprayer 10 and outer lid 508 is connected. 接合器505包括与颜料喷雾器10接合的第一端部510,如图1中所示,与可再利用外盖508接合的第二端部515,和在第一端部510和第二端部515之间的中空孔520。 The adapter 505 includes a first end portion 510 and the engagement of the paint sprayer 10, shown in Figure 1, the reusable outer lid 508 joined to the second end portion 515, and the first end portion 510 and a second end portion 515 520 between the hollow hole.

在一个实施例中,第一端部510直径小于第二端部515。 In one embodiment, the first end portion 510 of a smaller diameter than the second end portion 515. 第一端部510形状通常为圆柱状。 A first end portion 510 of generally cylindrical shape. 第一端部510具有连接表面525,用来与颜料喷雾器10上的辅助连接表面530接合。 A first end portion 510 has a connecting surface 525 for engagement with surface 530 on the paint sprayer 10 auxiliary connection. 合适的连接表面525和辅助连接表面530包括,但不局限于,螺纹螺旋状表面,凸缘和凹槽,锥形连接,卡口(bayonet)连接,搭扣(snap)连接,或者第一端部510可以与颜料喷雾器10一体形成,这样接合器505则为通入喷雾器10中的供料管道。 Suitable connecting surface 525 and complementary connecting surface 530 include, but are not limited to, threaded helical surfaces, lugs and grooves, tapered connections, bayonet (bayonet) connection, snap (snap) connection, or a first end portion 510 may be integrally formed with the paint sprayer 10, so that the adapter 505 was introduced into the nebulizer 10 in the supply pipe. 理想地,用于颜料喷雾器的连接表面525和互补连接表面530为标准尺寸和螺距的螺纹,从而所述流体供料组件可以跟多种喷雾器中的任何一种一起使用。 Desirably, the connecting surface 525 and complementary connecting surface 530 for a paint sprayer of standard size and pitch of the thread can be used so that the fluid supply assembly in conjunction with any of a variety of nebulizers.

第二端部515包括具有第一形状535的部分和具有第二形状540的部分。 The second end portion 515 includes a portion having a first shape 535 and a portion having a second shape 540. 如果需要,具有第一形状535的部分可以是平直的,具有第二形状540的部分可以是弯曲的。 If desired, the portion having a first shape 535 can be flat, portion having the second shape 540 can be curved. 可选择地,具有第一形状的部分可以具有简单的或者复杂的形状,包括但并不局限于,向外或向内弯曲。 Alternatively, the portion having the first shape can have a simple or complex shape, including, but not limited to, curved outward or inward. 如果具有第一形状的部分是弯曲的,它应该具有不同于具有第二形状的部分的曲率。 If the portion having the first shape is curved, it should have a different curvature portion having the second shape. 具有第二形状的部分除了弯曲也可以具有一定形状。 A second portion having a curved shape in addition to be a certain shape. 理想地,第二端部515具有相对的平直部分535和相对的弯曲部分540。 Desirably, the second end 515 has opposing flat portions 535 and opposing curved portions 540. 可以是一个或多个弯曲部分,和一个或多个平直部分。 May be one or more curved portions, and one or more flat portions. 理想地,具有两个相对的平直部分和两个相对的弯曲部分。 Ideally, having two opposing flat portions and two opposing curved portions.

外盖508具有一体的通常为圆柱状的接头545,开口550贯穿其上。 Outer lid 508 has an integral generally cylindrical fitting 545, through an opening 550 thereon. 开口550通常为圆形。 The opening 550 is generally circular. 外盖508中的开口550具有至少一个在开口550的上端部边缘向内延伸的突出部(tab)555。 Outer lid 508 has an opening 550 protruding portion (tab) 555 at least one edge of the open upper end portion 550 extends inwardly. 突出部555的形状使得具有第一形状的部分贴着它通过,但是不容许具有第二形状的部分通过,所以第二端部515可以插入开口550中。 Shaped protruding portion 555 such that a first portion having a shape close to it through, but does not allow the portion having the second shape by, the second end portion 515 may be inserted into the opening 550. 如果使用了平直部分535,那么突出部555通常为平直的。 If you use a straight section 535, then the protrusion 555 is generally flat. 突出部555可以位于接头545的上端部的边缘,或者如果需要,可以位于所述边缘下方。 Protrusion 555 may be located at the edge of the upper end portion of the fitting 545, or if desired, may be located at the bottom edge.

在开口550内突出部555的下方具有至少一个水平止动部560。 In the lower opening 555 of the protruding portion 550 has at least one horizontal portion 560 movable stopper. 第二端部515具有一定高度,使其安装在水平止动片560和接头545的突出部555之间,从而使第二端部515只能进入所需的距离。 The second end portion 515 having a certain height, so that it is mounted between the movable piece 560 and the projecting portion 555 of fitting 545 horizontal stop, so that the second end 515 enters only the desired distance. 当第二端部515碰上水平止动片560时,接合器505被旋转,以将流体供料组件锁定到颜料喷雾器10上,如图15所示。 When the second end portion 515 to run into the horizontal locking member 560, the adapter 505 is rotated to lock the fluid supply assembly to the paint sprayer 10, as shown in Fig. 可选地,外盖508可以被旋转到接合器505上。 Alternatively, the outer cover 508 may be rotated onto the adapter 505. 当接合器505被旋转时,突出部555与第二端部515的弯曲部分540的顶部接合。 When the adapter 505 is rotated, the top of the projecting portion 555 and the curved portion 515 of the second end portion 540 of the engagement.

在开口550的内部至少有一个垂直止动部562。 Inside the opening 550 has at least one vertical stopper portion 562. 垂直止动部562阻止接合器505旋转太远,以致于平直部分535又与突出部555配合,从而接合器505可能脱离接合。 Stopping of the movable portion 562 vertically rotating the adapter 505 is too far, so that the straight portion 535 and the protruding portions 555 fit, whereby the adapter 505 may be disengaged. 如果需要,垂直止动片562可以从突出部555延伸到水平止动部560。 If desired, the movable piece 562 may extend only vertically projecting portion 555 from the movable portion 560 to the horizontal stop. 可选地,垂直止动部562可以在突出部555和水平止动部560之间延伸部分距离。 Alternatively, movable portion 562 may extend vertically only partial distance between the protruding portion 555 and the horizontal moving unit 560 stop.
