  • Publication number: 20200148838
    Abstract: A process for continuous production of partly crystalline polycondensate pellet material which comprises the step of crystallizing the pellet material in a second treatment space (6a) under fixed bed conditions by supply of energy from the exterior by means of a process gas, wherein the process gas has a temperature (TGas), which is higher than the sum of the pellet temperature (TGR) and the temperature increase (TKR) which occurs due to heat of crystallization released hi the second treatment space (6a), i.e., (TGas>(TGR+TKR)). The pellets at the exit from the second treatment space (6a) have an average temperature (TPH), which is 10 to 90° C. higher than the sum of the temperature of the pellets (TGR) and the temperature increase (TKR) which occurs due to heat of crystallization released in the second treatment space (6a), i.e., (TGR+TKR+90° C.)?TPH?(TGR+TKR+10°).

  • Publication number: 20200146670
    Abstract: A suture anchor retaining a suture is fixated in hard tissue, in particular in bone tissue, using any per se known method and is then secured using a securing element including a material having thermoplastic properties, which is liquefied in situ and made to penetrate the hard tissue in which the suture anchor is fixated. The securing element is e.g. a thermoplastic plug or thermoplastic sleeve which is anchored above the suture anchor in a mouth area of the same hard tissue opening. Alternatively the securing element is a thermoplastic pin which is introduced into an inner cavity of the suture anchor, wherein the material having thermoplastic properties is liquefied in this cavity and, in a liquid state is pressed through passages connecting the cavity with outer surfaces of the anchor.

  • Publication number: 20200146734
    Abstract: A graft or prosthetic element suitable, e.g., for replacing a tendon or ligament is fastened in a bone tunnel or blind opening with the aid of a fastener. In a first step, the graft or prosthetic element is press-fitted in the tunnel or opening by forcing the fastener into the opening or by positioning the fastener in the opening and then expanding it, wherein the fastener is in contact with the graft or prosthetic element and with the bone wall of the tunnel or blind opening. In a second step, the fastener is anchored in the bone wall of the tunnel or blind opening with the aid of a liquefiable material which is liquefied in the vicinity of the bone wall where it is in contact with the fastener and by making the liquefied material penetrate into the bone wall.

  • Patent number: 10647262
    Abstract: A rooftop cargo carrier having a rack that can be mounted on the roof of an automotive vehicle and on which a linear rail is disposed, along which linear rail a support structure for an object to be transported can be moved between a transport position, in which the support structure is disposed above the linear rail, and an intermediate position, in which the support structure is disposed on the side as an extension of the linear rail. The configuration comprising the linear rail and the support structure can be pivoted between the intermediate position and a loading position, in which the linear rail and the support structure are disposed at a blunt angle relative to the rack. The rooftop cargo carrier also includes a retainer that allows joint pivoting movement of the linear rail and the support structure relative to the rack only after the intermediate position has been reached.
