  • Patent number: 10407336
    Abstract: A method for cutting a thin glass including the steps of guiding, by a transport device, the thin glass ribbon over a levitation support, and directing, within a range of the levitation support, a laser beam onto the thin glass ribbon, which heats up the thin glass ribbon at an impingement point of the laser beam. The method also includes the step of blowing, by a cooling jet generator, a cooling fluid onto the track heated by the laser beam so that a region heated by the laser beam is cooled down and a mechanical stress is created. The cooling fluid contains vapor of a liquid at a saturation ratio of at least 0.5 or a plurality of liquid droplets. The liquid droplets form a contact angle on a surface of the thin glass ribbon which is smaller than that of water on the same surface.

  • Publication number: 20190078197
    Abstract: A method and a device are provided for homogeneously coating surfaces of 3D substrates in a vacuum chamber which has a sputtering source, such as a planar source or a tube or double-tube source, wherein individual substrates, with a curved substrate surface directed toward the sputtering source, are able to be moved past said source in a translational manner. The sputtering source is fastened to a chamber wall within a vacuum chamber so as to have two degrees of freedom such that the sputtering source is able to be set both in terms of its spacing to a surface to be coated of a substrate, which is moved past in front of said sputtering source in a translational manner, and with respect to the surface normal of the surface to be coated proceeding from a fixed point such that the surface normal deviation is 0° at all times.

  • Publication number: 20180340303
    Abstract: A self-propelled construction machine includes a machine frame and an operating drum arranged in a drum housing which is open downwards and is closed on both sides by an edge protector which is adjustable in height. A control assembly determines a reference value for the height of the ground surface relative to the machine frame on which the edge protector rests in a floating position, the height of the edge protector relative to the machine frame and the lowering speed of the edge protector. Furthermore, the control assembly is configured such that the height of the edge protector relative to the machine frame is determined at the point in time at which the lowering speed of the edge protector is less than a specified limit value. Preferred embodiments of the machine furthermore detect the edge protector sinking into the ground, and/or prevent the edge protector from digging into the ground.
