  • Publication number: 20200355248
    Abstract: An anti-rotation system having a replaceable keyway is disclosed, wherein the system comprises a housing having a bore extending along an axis of the housing, and a housing aperture extending from an outside surface of the housing to the bore and extending along the housing parallel to the axis of the housing; a member configured to slide within the bore along the axis of the housing; an insert defining a keyway removably mounted on the housing wherein the keyway extends at least partially into the housing aperture; and a key carried by the member and engaged with the keyway defined by the insert; wherein the key cooperates with the insert to resist rotation of the member about the axis of the housing.

  • Patent number: 10825080
    Abstract: A computer-implemented method includes receiving a plurality of attribute headings for a product and storing the product and the associated attribute headings as part of a negotiation. A request for products associated with the negotiation is received and in response, a user interface listing at least one of the attribute headings for the product and providing controls for entering an attribute value for the listed at least one attribute heading is generated and transmitted. An attribute value for the listed attribute heading is received as part of a bid during the negotiation and is stored. An indication that the negotiation is complete is received and in response, the attribute value for the listed attribute heading is locked.

  • Patent number: 10353088
    Abstract: Neutron multiplicity detector control logic and firmware may control a neutron multiplicity detector such that higher count rates can be achieved by an order of magnitude of more over conventional control logic and firmware. Count rates of over 1,000,000 cps, and even over 1,500,000 cps, have been realized in some implementations.

  • Publication number: 20150120001
    Abstract: A decentralized process controller comprises at least two programmable interface modules in operative communication with each other. Each of the interface modules includes a processor and is configurable for connection to separate field devices comprising at least one sensor device and at least one actuator device. The at least two programmable interface modules are configurable as a stand-alone process control loop when one of the interface modules is connected to the sensor device, and the other of the interface modules is connected to the actuator device.

  • Patent number: 5948188
    Abstract: A veneer packet assembly and delivery apparatus; and, a method of assembling a packet of veneer sheets and delivering the assembled packet for incorporation into a billet being fed into a laminated veneer lumber press. A veneer sheet is aligned atop a first series of spaced horizontal members which are then displaced downwardly by a selected thickness distance and longitudinally by a selected offset distance. Additional sheets are sequentially aligned atop the previous sheet(s) until a packet having the desired number of plys is assembled. The first members are then lowered between a second series of spaced horizontal members, to transfer the packet onto the second members. The second members and the packet are then displaced horizontally away from the first members, over the input end of the press. A third series of spaced horizontal members are then raised between the second members, to transfer the packet onto the third members. The packet is then lowered onto the input end of the press.
