63 acts on switch 5 (5a); this occurs due to commutating
ously according to the position and number of projec
tions 270 and 70. Since four angular displacements of
shafts 50, 250 are foreseen, the third and fourth cycle
might be different from the ones in FIGS. 4 and 5 al
ways with the aim of working the slab according to dif~
ferent paths and working slab 31 according to a plu

motor 212 is concerned.
In fact, for example, as soon as feeding of electro
magnetic switch 7 is interrupted, switch 08' is closed and
thus electromagnetic switch 07 is fed which opens switch
8 and thus it does not allow feeding of electromagnetic
switch 7 even if one of switches 5 is then closed.
