  • Patent number: 9760399
    Abstract: The performance of a device can be improved by intelligently terminating (or otherwise operationally adjusting) applications, services, or processes that the user is unlikely to access on the device. Information such as system event data and hint data can be obtained from various sources and fed to one or more predictor algorithms, which can determine the likelihood that a user will access various applications over a period of time. Other determinations can be made as well, such as which applications are most likely causing degradation in performance. Various termination actions can be selected to be performed, which can in some cases adjust the applications selected for termination by an operating system of the device. Once a set of actions is selected, those termination actions can be performed for the associated application(s) at least to the extent needed to restore health of the device.

  • Patent number: 9731377
    Abstract: A method of bonding a first article to a second article, each article having a respective bond surface. The method comprises interposing a porous interlayer region between the bond surfaces of the first and second articles and subsequently using electrical resistance heating to locally heat the interlayer region under contact pressure to a bonding temperature below the melting temperature of the interlayer and the first and second articles to thereby bond the interlayer to the first and second articles to form a bonded article. The interlayer has a porosity of between approximately 10% and 30%.

  • Publication number: 20170225230
    Abstract: An apparatus for manufacturing an article from powder material includes a canister, a sorter, a plurality of hoppers and at least one valve. The canister has a predetermined internal shape to define the shape of the powder metal article. The sorter sorts the powder material by the size of the powder particles, the shape of the powder particles and/or the flow characteristics of the powder particles. The hoppers contain powder material with different sizes of powder particles, different shapes of powder particles and/or powder particles with different flow characteristics. The hoppers are arranged to supply the sorted powder material to the canister. The at least one valve controls the proportions of the different powder materials supplied from the one or more of the different hoppers into the canister to control the packing density of the powder material in the canister at all positions in the canister.

  • Publication number: 20170172817
    Abstract: An article including a front region, a back region, and a chassis. The chassis may include an absorbent core having a front end edge and a back end edge. The front region and the back region may extend laterally outward beyond side edges of the chassis. The front region and the back region may abut to form a first seam and a second seam. At least one of the front region and the back region may include an elastic member. A first outer nonwoven layer of the front region and a second outer nonwoven layer of the back region may be folded to form an upper edge in the front and back regions such that a distal end of each of the first and second outer nonwoven layer may be disposed between the upper edge and the front and back end edges of the absorbent core, respectively.

  • Publication number: 20170160241
    Abstract: A method of machining an object, the method comprising: receiving a signal from an ultrasonic transducer; determining at least a first external surface of the object and a second internal surface of the object in the received signal; determining a thickness between the first external surface and the second internal surface of the object, the object comprising a first material between the first external surface and the second internal surface, and a second material between the second internal surface and a third surface, the determination of the thickness using a database including a plurality of materials and a plurality of associated acoustic wave velocities; and controlling machining of the first external surface using the determined thickness.

  • Patent number: 9630248
    Abstract: A method of manufacturing an article by hot pressing and ultrasonically inspecting the article comprises forming and filling a canister with powder material and evacuating and sealing the canister. Heat and pressure are applied to the canister to consolidate the powder material to form the article. The article within the canister is ultrasonically inspected by moving a transducer over the whole of the canister. The position of an interface between the article and the canister, and the thickness of the canister, at each position on the surface of the canister and if there are defects within the article are determined. The canister is then removed from the article by machining the canister using a machining tool, the movement of the tool is controlled such that at each position of the canister the tool removes the determined thickness of the canister for the corresponding position on the surface of the canister.
