  • Patent number: 8316584
    Abstract: The invention relates to a fireproofing element comprising a fireproof glazed element (1) which forms a window or door leaf (8). A bulkhead frame (3) is arranged around the door leaf (8), inserted in the building (2). A deformable component (28) is built in between the bulkhead frame (3) and the building (2). At least one telescopic element (15) is arranged between a lateral edge (10) of the door leaf (8) and the bulkhead frame (3). Said telescopic element (15) is displaceable relative to the bulkhead frame (3) in the direction of the arrows (20). The telescopic element (15) can compensate for changes in the joint (50) between the door leaf (8) and the bulkhead frame (3) and/or also seal said joint (50). Changes in length as a result of heating of the components during a fire can thus be accommodated and the door leaf (8) and fireproofing glazed element (1) hence not destroyed.

  • Patent number: 8307783
    Abstract: Vacuum treatment installation particularly for plasma coating workpieces, has an arrangement for boosting and/or igniting a glow discharge plasma for the treatment of workpieces, and at least one hollow body of electrically conductive material, the hollow body including a hollow space and at least one entrance opening through which charge carriers flow in order to make possible ignition and operation of a plasma or to boost an existing plasma. The hollow body is electrically connected to workpieces so that the hollow body is essentially at workpiece potential. The hollow space is formed such that when an electric signal is applied to the hollow body, at least in a certain pressure and voltage range, geometric conditions for the ignition of a discharge in the interior of the hollow body are satisfied, and the at least one hollow body is not a workpiece carrier.

  • Patent number: 8308032
    Abstract: A machine for forming and ironing folds in cloth has a plate frame on which are fixed a support and pressure system, a template on which the cloth is put, a moving system for moving a blocking plate which blocks the cloth, a guide system for guiding a folding element which folds outer edges of the cloth and an ironing plate. The guide system has a guide profile and a translating arm which is translated in a longitudinal direction and has a roller and a folding element. The arm is under pressure towards the guide profile so that the roller beats and slides along the edge of the guide profile. In this way, the folding element follows the movement of the arm according to the guide profile and moves in the longitudinal direction and a transversal direction.

  • Patent number: 8287806
    Abstract: A pipetting apparatus has a fluidic space to which a pressure transducer with a pressure sensor is attached with a gas filled space. The fluidic space is defined by a pipette tip, a first tubing that connects the pipette tip to a pump, and an active part of the pump. The pipetting apparatus further has an impulse generating mechanism that is in operative contact with a column of system liquid inside the fluidic space. The impulse generating mechanism induces a vertical movement in the system liquid column, which results in a pressure variation in the gas filled space that is pneumatically connected with the fluidic space. This pressure variation, as recorded with the pressure transducer and as processed by a first data processing unit during utilization of this pipetting apparatus, is taken as an indicator for the detection of penetration or of quitting of a surface of a liquid, with an orifice of the pipette tip, of which liquid an amount is to be aspirated and dispensed.
