  • Publication number: 20190293133
    Abstract: A disc brake for a utility vehicle has a brake caliper which fits around a brake disc, is in the form of a sliding caliper, is fastened to a stationary brake carrier and has a central opening over the brake disc. The disc brake has two brake pads which are arranged in the brake caliper, can be moved in opposite directions and each have a pad carrier plate and a friction lining fastened thereto, and of which an action-side brake pad can be pressed against the brake disc by a tensioning device via at least one brake piston. The disc brake also has at least one spreading device with which the brake caliper can be returned after a displacement caused by braking and after a release of the brake. The spreading device has resilient spring units which act on the mutually opposing brake pads.

  • Publication number: 20190218688
    Abstract: A method for automatically piecing a thread at a workstation of a textile machine, includes seeking an end of the thread on a surface of a bobbin with a suction nozzle and unwinding the thread from the bobbin counter to a regular draw-off direction of the thread and sucking the thread into the suction nozzle. The bobbin is driven in a direction of reverse rotation with a drive. A thread loop is draw-opened in the thread and moved towards a piecing unit via movement of a feeder unit. The bobbin is driven in the direction of reverse rotation during the drawing-open of the thread loop such that the thread is unwound from the bobbin. A speed of reverse rotation of the bobbin is coordinated with movement of the feeder unit.

  • Patent number: 9958021
    Abstract: A brake pad retainer is provided for a disc brake for a commercial vehicle. A pad retaining bracket is supported by pad retaining springs on both sides of a brake disc on a brake pad arranged in a brake caliper. The pad retaining bracket tensions a mounting opening of the brake caliper in the direction of the axis of the brake disc and is maintained at least on one side by a bolt-shaped securing element in a securing eye of the brake caliper. The brake pad retainer is designed such that the securing element is formed from an eccentric bolt having a shaft and at least one eccentric section which is positioned so that it is axially offset with respect the shaft.
