  • Publication number: 20210275752
    Abstract: Disclosed are plunger assemblies including various convertible plungers and methods of making the same. Each plunger assembly is configured for disposition within a barrel of a medical container, e.g., a syringe, and displaced within the barrel from an engagement position to a release position. The engagement position is configured to provide a compression seal between a storage sealing section of the plunger and an inner wall of the syringe barrel. In the release position, the compression seal is reduced or eliminated. Also disclosed are methods for making convertible plungers and assembling them into syringes, e.g., pre-filled syringes.

  • Publication number: 20210004369
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates to systems and methods for searching a machining knowledge database that includes stored 3D models and associated stored part signatures. The stored part signatures each include a shape metric that corresponds to geometric attributes of the corresponding 3D model. Methods include receiving input from a user relating to an input part, determining an input part signature that includes a shape metric that corresponds to geometric attributes of the input part, searching the machining knowledge database for similar 3D models based at least in part on the input part signature, and providing the search result to the user. Methods may include associating the input in the machining knowledge database and/or utilizing the search result, for example visualizing a comparison of the input and the search result.

  • Patent number: 10802679
    Abstract: A method for configuring a data analyzer is provided. The method comprises displaying to a user, on a presentation interface coupled to a processor, a graphical representation of at least a portion of the data analyzer. A data analyzer configuration for the data analyzer is then generated using a user input interface, which is coupled to the presentation interface and the processor. The presentation interface then displays to the user a plurality of selectable machine train components. The method also comprises generating, using the user input interface, an interactive graphical representation of a machine train including at least one of the selectable machine train components. Using the processor, a configuration file is generated based on the data analyzer configuration and the graphical representation of the machine train. The configuration file facilitates diagnosing operation of the machine train using the data analyzer.

  • Publication number: 20200178769
    Abstract: Endoscopic light refraction imaging techniques are described for configuring a viewing trocar and/or angled endoscope with a light refracting element, such as glass and/or plastic prism for instance. The light refracting element can be utilized in and/or with the viewing trocar to refract (i.e., bend) light passing into the trocar through the trocar's window. As a result, the angled endoscope's field of view can be substantially aligned with the field of view of the trocar's window, thus allowing the angled endoscope and viewing trocar to be used together to create ports in a patient, including initial ports of endoscopic surgical procedures.
