  • Publication number: 20190184643
    Abstract: A blank is manufactured by additive layer manufacturing. The blank is made up of a part, a tool, and a connection member connecting the tool to the part, which are all integrally formed during the build from the same build material. The connection member can be cut or broken to disconnect the tool from the part which enables the tool to be used to mechanically remove surface build material from the surface of the part.

  • Patent number: 9685730
    Abstract: A connection arrangement for a floor power distribution system is provided herein. The connection arrangement comprises a hub arrangement including a hub housing and an electrical connector, the hub housing configured to abut a floor. An adapter is configured to engage the hub housing of the hub arrangement and a seal member is positioned between a downwardly facing surface of the adapter and an upwardly facing surface of the hub housing, wherein a vertical downward force exerted on the adapter compresses the seal member to form a substantially watertight seal between the adapter and the hub housing.

  • Publication number: 20140276696
    Abstract: Methods and devices for separating an implanted object, such as a lead for a mechanical pacemaker or a cardioverter defibrillator, from tissue surrounding such object in a patient's vasculature system. The methods and devices comprise a means for applying tension to the object at the working end of a catheter to reduce the catheter's likelihood of bending or kinking the lead during extraction.

  • Publication number: 20140081252
    Abstract: Methods and systems for separating an object, such as a lead, from formed tissue are provided. Specifically, a tissue slitting device is configured to engage patient formed tissue at a slitting engagement point. While the object is subjected to a first traction force, the tissue slitting device is caused to move further into the engaged tissue and slit the tissue past the point of engagement. The slitting device causes the tissue to separate along an axial direction of the length of the formed tissue and releases at least some of the force containing the object. The methods and systems are well suited for use in cardiac pacing or defibrillator lead explant procedures.
