  • Patent number: 7880152
    Abstract: The invention relates to a device and a method for producing resist profiled elements. According to the invention, an electron beam lithography system is used to produce an electron beam, the axis of the beam being essentially perpendicular to a resist layer in which the resist profiled element is to be produced. The electron beam can be adjusted in terms of the electron surface dose in such a way that a non-orthogonal resist profiled element can be produced as a result of the irradiation by the electron beam.

  • Publication number: 20090080820
    Abstract: A bearing segment of a heavy-duty hydrodynamic axial plain bearing for an electric machine and including a stationary subassembly and a rotary subassembly is described. The bearing segment includes a sliding surface facing a front surface of the rotary subassembly and in close proximity to the front surface so as to form a lubricant gap containing a lubricant between the sliding surface and the front surface. The front surface slides relative to the sliding surface when the rotary subassembly is rotating so as to create a high pressure region and a low pressure region of the lubricant gap. The bearing segment also includes an equalizing duct interconnecting the high-pressure region and the low-pressure region.

  • Patent number: 7332730
    Abstract: A device and a method for imaging and positioning a multiparticle beam on a substrate is disclosed. The device comprises a particle beam source with a condenser optic that produces a particle beam that illuminates the surface of an aperture plate. A multiplicity of individual beams are produced from the particle beam by means of the aperture plate, which are then projected by a projection system onto a substrate where they describe a beam base point. The substrate or target, respectively, is placed on a table that is movable along an x-coordinate and a y-coordinate, and that is provided with a laser path measurement system.

  • Publication number: 20050193553
    Abstract: At least two components are brought to rest on each other at least in an assembly portion, with a carrier element contacting a first one of the two components at least in the assembly portion, and at least one projection passing through the components in the assembly portion in the direction towards the carrier element. The carrier element is planarly supported at least in the assembly portion against the passing-through movement of the projection, and the passing of the projection through the components. The opposed planar support of the carrier element effects a plastic deformation of the passed-through material of the components in the direction transversely to the passing-through movement of the projection by deforming the carrier element.

  • Patent number: 6774375
    Abstract: In a method for forming, with the aid of an electron beam (6), a polyline on a substrate (4) coated with a radiation-sensitive resist, the electron beam (6) is directed onto a surface of the substrate (4) in the direction of a Z coordinate, and the substrate (4) is displaced relative to the electron beam (6) in an X-Y plane in individual steps. After each individual step of the displacement, the electron beam (6) acts with a predefined energy input on the substrate (4) during a halt in the displacement motion. The energy input for each individual step is determined as a function of the shape of the polyline ascertained from several preceding individual steps. Also described is a corresponding apparatus with which, using electron beam lithography, it is possible to form polylines with a very uniform line width. The method and apparatus are particularly suitable for writing curved polylines.

  • Publication number: 20020013664
    Abstract: A system and method for control and monitoring of rotating equipment through the use of machine status classification where, in one embodiment, adaptive control measures responsive to the machine status are implemented. The invention provides a computer-implemented method for monitoring a mechanical component using either a neural network or weighted distance classifier. The method references a predetermined set of candidate data features for a sensor measuring an operational attribute of the component and derives a subset of those features which are then used in real-time to determine class affiliation parameter values. The classification database is updated when an anomalous measurement is encountered, even as monitoring of the mechanical component continues in real-time. The invention also provides a dimensionless peak amplitude data feature and a dimensionless peak separation data feature for use in classifying.

  • Patent number: 4217743
    Abstract: Assemblies of collated film sections and related prints, each belonging to a customer, are fed seriatim into a tray at the right-hand side of a horizontal table in front of a seated attendant so that the attendant can remove an assembly with the right hand while the left-hand opens the corresponding customer pocket which is held in a position of readiness at the left-hand side of the table. The attendant can observe the collating operation by inspecting successive film frames while the frames move above an illuminated window below and in front of the web of photographic paper with exposed and developed prints thereon. The pockets are removed seriatim from a magazine and are transported to the left-hand side of the table where the rear panel of an oncoming pocket is held by suction to facilitate the task of opening the pocket by pulling the front panel away from the rear panel.

  • Patent number: 4107703
    Abstract: A camera can use film cassettes which, depending upon the sensitivity of the film they contain, are or are not provided with an external marker. If a cassette with a marker is inserted into the camera the marker deflects a sensing arm so that a projection of the arm moves out of the path of movement of a rack which carries a filter. This permits the spring-biased rack to move to a position in which the filter is located in the path of light impinging upon a light-sensing device of the camera. If a cassette without a marker is inserted the arm is not deflected and its projection extends into the path of movement of the rack and prevents the rack from moving to the aforementioned position, so that the filter cannot move into the light path.

  • Patent number: 4073118
    Abstract: An elongated web of exposed and developed photographic film is moved lengthwise and is severed at regular intervals to yield a succession of discrete sections. Related sections (e.g., those belonging to a customer) are assembled into groups of overlapping sections, and such groups are thereupon introduced into discrete envelopes. The assembling of groups takes place in a fan-shaped magazine having a plurality of separate compartments and being movable relative to belts or analogous transporting means for successive sections of the severed film so that each section enters a different compartment. When the magazine accumulates a group of related sections, the sections are expelled from the magazine by a pusher which moves them forwardly (i.e., in the same direction in which the sections were transported to enter the magazine) or sideways and into the respective envelope. The width of each compartment decreases in the direction of forward movement of sections or at right angles to such direction.
