  • Publication number: 20210276027
    Abstract: The disclosure relates to a rotary atomizer for applying a spray jet of a coating agent (e.g. paint) to a component (e.g. motor vehicle body component). The disclosure provides that the construction dimensions of the rotary atomizer are coordinated in such a way that the air pressure at the outlet opening of the paint nozzle during operation is lower than the air pressure in the nozzle chamber of the bell cup and in the external rinsing channels in order to prevent a backflow of the coating agent from the outlet opening of the paint nozzle backwards in the direction of the nozzle chamber due to the pressure difference.

  • Patent number: 11017007
    Abstract: A method for allocating a memory location to a physical information carrier includes using an application executed on a portable processing unit; requesting the memory location on a server via a communication interface connected to the portable processing unit; allocating the memory location a unique identifier; allocating the unique identifier a pattern that is to be applied manually to a surface of the physical information carrier; applying the pattern by a user manually to the surface of the physical information carrier, whereby the memory location on the server is connected to the physical information carrier; if the pattern is captured while using a sensor of processing unit, downloading the allocation the memory location to the unique identifier from the server; and accessing the memory location via the portable processing unit by using the downloaded allocation.

  • Patent number: 11011904
    Abstract: An embodiment of the invention relates to a method for ground fault detection for low-voltage three-phase AC circuits having a neutral conductor, in which first to fourth analog current signals of the first to third phase conductors and of the neutral conductor of the three-phase AC circuit are ascertained that each contain the level or an equivalent of the level of the current. The analog current signals are time-division multiplexed, subjected to a/d conversion, and a sequence of time-division-multiplexed first to fourth digital current values present in first to fourth successive time frames form first to fourth current signals. Three of the four digital current signals are interpolated to ascertain interpolated current values. The current value of the time frame of the uninterpolated current signal and the interpolated current values for the time frame of the uninterpolated current signal are used for discovering the ground fault.

  • Publication number: 20210109039
    Abstract: A system for computed tomography inspection can include a stage, a stationary radiation source, a stationary radiation detector, and a controller. The stage can secure a target thereon and rotate about a rotation axis. The radiation source can emit a beam of penetrating radiation from a focal point that is directed upon a portion of the target. The radiation detector can include a sensing face configured to acquire measurements of radiation beam intensity incident thereon as a function of position. The controller can command the stage to translate from a first position to a second position in a direction transverse to a central axis of the radiation beam. A magnification of the target at the first and second positions can be approximately equal. The stage does not translate transverse to the central axis of the radiation beam during measurement of the radiation beam intensity by the detector.

  • Publication number: 20210087050
    Abstract: A cover layer (23) of a fleece material for an innerspring unit (20) comprising a plurality of pocketed springs (29) is manufactured by supplying at least two longitudinal fleece webs (24, 25), which extend substantially parallel in a longitudinal direction and are spaced from one another, and repeatedly attaching a transverse fleece web (26, 27), which extends between the longitudinal fleece webs (24, 25) in a direction substantially perpendicular to the longitudinal direction, to the longitudinal fleece webs (24, 25). The transverse fleece web segments (26, 27) are attached to the longitudinal fleece webs (24, 25) such that they form together with the longitudinal fleece webs (24, 25) a framelike structure (21) serving as the cover layer (23).

  • Publication number: 20210078855
    Abstract: In order to manufacture an innerspring unit (31) comprising pocketed springs and having an increased stability at its edge regions, in a first step, an innerspring main body (30) comprising a plurality of first strings (14) of pocketed springs is provided. In a subsequent second step, at least one second string (13c, 13d) of pocketed springs is attached to a lateral surface of the innerspring main body (30), so that the at least one second string (13c, 13d) of pocketed springs extends in a longitudinal direction of the innerspring main body (30). The springs (13) of the at least one second string (13c, 13d) of pocketed springs have a spring characteristic or a spring geometry different from the springs of the plurality of first strings of the innerspring main body (30). The at least one second string (13c, 13d) of pocketed springs forms together with the innerspring main body (30) the innerspring unit (31).
