Has any court construed the claim term “frustoconical”?

The term “frustoconical” has been construed six times in five different cases. It has been construed three times as a stand-alone term and three times as part of a phrase. Constructions vary in their wording, but generally describe a cone with the tip removed (e.g., ”having the shape of a cone with the narrow end, or tip, removed”) or apply the ordinary meaning. Related terms that have also been construed include: “frusto conical”, “frusto-conical”, “frustoconical(ly)”, and ”frustum”.
