  • Patent number: 11267653
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and apparatus for transporting workcells. In one aspect, a system includes a first fleet of AGVs that each include electro-mechanical interface that is adapted to (i) connect to or lift multiple different types of workcells and (ii) provide charging power to or receive charging power from multiple different types of workcells. A second fleet of multiple different types of workcells are each adapted to perform one or more particular tasks. A control system is configured to identify a set of tasks to be performed by the second fleet of workcells and, for each task, select a workcell to perform the task, select an AGV to transport the selected workcell to a location at which the task is to be performed, and provide, to the selected AGV, instructions that cause the selected AGV to transport the selected workcell to the location at which the task is to be performed.

  • Publication number: 20210092872
    Abstract: A server tray assembly includes a server tray support configured to receive a server board that includes a working fluid conduit fluidly coupled to a server board connector disposed on a back plane of the server board, a back wall of the server tray support includes a fluid connector configured to form an unbiased fluid connection with the server board connector; and a locking assembly secured to at least one of a server rack or the server tray support, the locking assembly disposed opposite the fluid connector is configured to engage a portion of the server board to bias the server board toward the fluid connector to fluidly seal the unbiased fluid connection between the server board connector and the fluid connector of the server tray support.

  • Patent number: 8394282
    Abstract: Adaptive imprint planarization provides a surface having desired shape characteristics. Generally, topography of a first surface is mapped to provide a density map. The density map is evaluated to provide a drop pattern for dispensing polymerizable material on the first surface. The polymerizable material is solidified and etched to provide a second surface having the desired shape characteristics. Additionally, adaptive imprint planarization compensates for parasitic effects of the imprinting process.

  • Publication number: 20100012622
    Abstract: Adaptive nanotopography sculpting may be used to alter nanotopography and roughness without altering the nominal shape of a surface. Generally, adaptive nanotopography sculpting provides a surface having desired shape characteristics. Topography of a first surface is mapped to provide a density map. The density map is evaluated to provide a drop pattern for dispensing polymerizable material on the first surface. The polymerizable material is solidified and etched to provide a second surface having the desired shape characteristics.
