  • Patent number: 10758043
    Abstract: A self-retracting and damping device for a drawer element, having a first driver, which has a first driver fork for the engagement of an external activator and is guided in a displaceable manner in a first guide curve, and having a second driver, which is guided in a displaceable manner in a second guide curve. One of the drivers is coupled to a damping element and the other driver is coupled to an energy store. The two drivers are coupled to one another in part. The first driver is coupled to the energy store and the second driver is coupled to the damping element. In a first part of a retracting movement, the energy store and the damping element act on the external activator and, in a second part of the retracting movement, only the energy store acts on the external activator.

  • Patent number: 10667608
    Abstract: The invention relates to a pull-out guide, in particular for a domestic appliance or a piece of furniture, comprising a stationary guide rail and a running rail which is movably mounted on the guide rail. A damping device comprising a fluid damper which acts on one side is provided on the guide rail, said fluid damper having a damper housing and a piston rod which can be pushed into and drawn out of the damper housing. A first activator acts on the damping device shortly before reaching a closed position during a closing movement of the running rail in order to brake the movement of the running rail. A second activator acts on the damping device shortly before reaching the maximum open position during an opening movement of the running rail in order to brake the movement of the running rail. The pull-out guide is preferably used in a domestic appliance, in particular in a dishwasher.
