  • Publication number: 20190261882
    Abstract: Embodiments of the present disclosure generally relate wearable patches having rigid inserts. The rigid insert is positioned adjacent to one or more connectors, such as studs for receiving sockets to distribute the force transferred to a patient when reconnecting a socket to the stud. The rigid insert may be sized to maintain flexibility in areas of the wearable patch. An optional adhesive layer may be applied to the wearable patch adjacent the rigid insert to reduce the likelihood of delamination of the wearable patch.

  • Publication number: 20170266743
    Abstract: An apparatus and method to machine cavities in die blanks having little to no taper. The apparatus includes an elec trode tool (200) including intersecting walls coated with electrically insulating coating (258), an erosion face (204) comprising a cross section of the walls exposed through the electrically insulating coating, and a channel formed by the walls to supply electrolyte to the erosion face, the channels defined by interior surfaces of the walls and having an opening formed by edges of the erosion face. The method includes pulsed electrochemical machining a work piece with the electrode tool.

  • Patent number: 8257623
    Abstract: An extrusion die is processed to alter the flow of extrudable material through the die by collecting data reflecting flow variations across the face of the die, constructing a graded resistance flow restrictor utilizing the data, and forcing an abrasive machining medium through the flow restrictor and die with the flow restrictor being arranged to deliver higher abrasive flow through die portions initially exhibiting low extrusion rates, the resulting die being useful for the manufacture of ceramic honeycomb bodies exhibiting a reduced incidence of shape defects attributable to die flow variations.

  • Patent number: 7524448
    Abstract: The invention discloses method and apparatus for providing a desired batch flow through desired regions of an extrusion die for forming honeycomb structures, and more particularly to the enhancement of batch flow in the skin-forming region of the die so as to provide a bounding wall of desired thickness and strength about a honeycomb core. Unlike prior methods, a recess or trough of desired depth and width is formed in a desired region of the inlet face of the honeycomb die, which reduces the pressure required to flow batch material through the die in such region. Such reduced pressure requirement translates in an increased flow rate in such region under constant extrusion pressure. Thus by increasing the flow rate through a honeycomb extrusion die in an outer peripheral region of flow in this manner, improved skin formation around a honeycomb core is obtained during the forming process.

  • Patent number: 6576046
    Abstract: A modular two-stage electrostatic precipitator for extracting airborne particles includes individual ionizer/collector cell modules having integrated power supplies and diagnostic systems. The cell modules are adapted to be joined blindly to one another in end-to-end nested relation through nestable end plates and in a series circuit utilizing floating electrical connectors. The module end plates provide self-correction in misalignment during a blind connection and provide sealed end plate cavities for the power supply and electrical connections. The diagnostic system provides detection for any open system circuit and/or short circuit condition and allows for trouble shooting on an individual cell module basis.

  • Patent number: 5421863
    Abstract: A device for use in an electrostatic precipitator including an electrically insulating disk having a hole, which may be a venturi-shaped passage, for receiving a tie rod and an arrangement for supporting the tie rod in the hole so as to allow a fluid to flow through the hole between an inside surface of the hole and the tie rod. An air stream deflector may be mounted on the tie rod to provide further protection and help direct air flow. A recirculating flow system may also be provided to direct clean air through the venturi-shaped passage.
