  • Publication number: 20230347449
    Abstract: A method for producing a weakening line in a surface of a component. The method comprises a guiding step and a skipping step. In the guiding step, a removal apparatus for removing a material of the surface is guided over a plurality of segments of a predefined line-shaped contour by means of an activated laser beam in order to produce a desired wall thickness for at least one of the segments so as to produce the weakening line. In the skipping step, the segment is skipped if the segment has the desired wall thickness.

  • Patent number: 11599807
    Abstract: Aspects of the present disclosure relate to interactive search training. A training canvas comprises results associated with a search query. The training canvas may be used as part of a training session that occurs during normal use of a search platform. When the search platform is first used, the results may be provided based on an existing model. An irrelevant result may be removed from the training canvas, such that a replacement result is added in its place. Additionally, results may be reordered, thereby indicating a ranking with which results should be displayed. Such interactions with the training canvas may be used to generate training data, such that a new model is trained accordingly. Thus, interactions with the training canvas yield high-quality training data that is usable to generate a model having equal or greater performance than a model that was trained using an equivalent amount of implicit training data.

  • Publication number: 20220395927
    Abstract: A method and device for producing a predetermined breaking line in a vehicle interior trim part with a scanning laser beam. An actual position of the vehicle interior trim part held in a working plane relative to a laser scanning device is detected by a camera and the actual position of the predetermined breaking line is derived. A stored desired position for a scan figure corresponding to the predetermined breaking line is corrected to an actual position, whereby the predetermined breaking line is produced at a predetermined position on the vehicle interior trim part during scanning of the scan figure. A positional shift of the scan figure becomes possible because a sensor matrix with an upstream diffuser is used, which can detect transmitted components of the laser beam independently of the position of the laser beam along the scan figure.

  • Publication number: 20220349078
    Abstract: A process can be used for the treatment of an offgas stream, which is formed in a plant for the production of aluminum by electrolytic reduction of aluminum oxide in a melt, using at least one anode composed of a carbon-containing material. The offgas stream contains carbon oxides due to the reduction of the aluminum oxide by the carbon. At least a substream of the carbon oxides contained in the offgas stream is reacted with hydrogen or mixed with a hydrogen stream and is subsequently passed to a use. After purification and conditioning of the offgas stream in a device, an enrichment, for example with carbon monoxide, can subsequently be carried out in a reactor and the synthesis gas obtained in this way can be fed to a chemical or biotechnological plant for the synthesis of chemicals of value.

  • Publication number: 20220235479
    Abstract: A process can utilize carbon oxides formed in the production of aluminum, by electrolytic reduction of aluminum oxide in a melt using at least one anode made of a carbon-comprising material. A pyrolysis of hydrocarbons, in particular methane or natural gas, is carried out in which pyrolysis carbon and hydrogen are formed. The pyrolysis carbon is used for the production of the at least one anode. The hydrogen formed in the pyrolysis of methane is mixed with carbon dioxide and/or carbon monoxide from the electrolytic production of aluminum, to produce a gas stream which is parsed to a further use. An integrated plant contains an electrolysis apparatus for producing aluminum by melt-electrolytic reduction of aluminum oxide, and also contains at least one reactor in which pyrolysis carbon and hydrogen are produced by pyrolysis of hydrocarbons.

  • Patent number: 11078077
    Abstract: A method for producing synthesis gas may involve introducing a hydrocarbon-containing coke-oven gas and a carbon dioxide-containing converter gas into a first reaction zone where hydrogen present in the hydrocarbon-containing coke-oven gas reacts at least partly with carbon dioxide to form water, which reacts thermally with hydrocarbon to form synthesis gas containing carbon monoxide and hydrogen. The method may further involve introducing an oxygen-containing gas in a second reaction zone, and using the oxygen-containing gas and some hydrogen from the first reaction zone to produce thermal energy. Still further, the method may involve supplying the thermal energy produced in the second reaction zone to the first reaction zone.
