  • Publication number: 20210361577
    Abstract: The invention relates to lipophilic transport particles for cosmetic or pharmaceutical active ingredients. The lipophilic transport particles comprise polyglycerol fatty acid ester as a main constituent and, because of the absence of polymorphic transformations, even during long storage, neither have volume changes nor allow the problem of expulsion of the adhering or enclosed active ingredient, due to intense structuring of the crystal lattice and associated compaction, to arise, and therefore the degree of loading with active ingredient and the release profile are stable.

  • Patent number: 10464195
    Abstract: A method for controlling a screwdriver that has an electromotor, the electromotor having a clear ratio of rotational speed (n) to torque (M) at a defined effective voltage (Ueff soll), involving the following method step: —defining an effective voltage (Ueff soll) for operating the electromotor, —defining a cut-off rotational speed (nab) that corresponds to a pre-defined cut-off torque (Msoll) at the pre-defined effective voltage (Ueff soll), —operating the screwdriver under load with the pre-defined effective voltage (Ueff soll), —during operation of the screwdriver: —determining the rotational speed (n), —shutting down the electromotor when the cut-off rotational speed (nab) is attained.

  • Patent number: 10314801
    Abstract: The invention provides coated particles with a taste-masked drug substance. The particles comprise a core with the agglomerated active ingredient and a coating comprising a triglyceride and a surfactant. The particles exhibit rapid drug release and a stable release profile. Moreover, the invention provides a hot-melt coating method for manufacturing such particles, and pharmaceutical compositions comprising the particles. The method allows the coating of core particles at moderate temperatures, thereby preventing the degradation of the thermolabile active ingredient.

  • Patent number: 9505106
    Abstract: A method for rotating a rotatable part using a hydraulic piston-cylinder drive operated by a hydraulic pressure source and having at least one piston and a ratchet, wherein a torque is applied to the rotatable part during a loading stroke and the piston is moved into a starting position via a return stroke. The loading stroke ends when an end position of the piston is reached and subsequently the return stroke is started, wherein the end position is a position of the piston before the piston abuts against an end stop.
