See IMS Technology, Inc. v. Haas Automation, Inc., 206 F. 3d 1422, 1434 (Fed. Cir. 2000) (The phrase "control apparatus" in the preamble merely gives a descriptive name to the set of limitations in the body of the claim that completely set forth the invention. Its use does not limit the claims, as Haas contends, to a control apparatus that is separate from the machine tool. The claim is infringed by any apparatus encompassing all of the limitations in the body of the claim.)
