  • Patent number: 11141747
    Abstract: A nozzle arrangement for a spray gun, in particular a paint spray gun, has at least one paint nozzle and an air cap. The paint nozzle has at least one outlet opening for the material to be sprayed and the air cap has at least one central opening which is bounded by at least one wall. The at least one wall forms a gap with at least one part of the paint nozzle, and a forward part of the paint nozzle has at least an inner face, an outer face and an end face. The end face of the paint nozzle encloses, at least in certain regions, an angle of greater than 90° or an angle of less than 90° with an outer face or an inner face of the paint nozzle. In the nozzle arrangements, the back-pressure counter to the outflow of the material to be sprayed is lower than in prior art nozzles. A spray gun, in particular a paint spray gun, having such a nozzle arrangement is also disclosed.

  • Patent number: 10866407
    Abstract: A micromechanical component includes a micromirror connected to a mounting support via at least one spring such that the micromirror is adjustable about at least one axis of rotation relative to the mounting support, where the micromirror includes a reflective surface developed at least partially on a first diaphragm surface of a mounted diaphragm of the micromirror, the diaphragm including a second diaphragm surface that faces away from the first diaphragm surface and that is mounted in air or vacuum.

  • Patent number: 10795149
    Abstract: A micromirror device having a cap, a function layer, and a window layer, which are disposed on top of one another and parallel to a main extension plane, the function layer being situated between the cap and the window layer, and a micromirror is patterned out of the function layer. The micromirror device has a stop, which is designed to restrict a deflection of the micromirror in a direction perpendicular to the main extension plane.

  • Patent number: 10709904
    Abstract: An apparatus for performing nanoparticle-assisted external beam radiotherapy includes an X-ray spectrometer having an optical axis, an X-ray filter, and a mobile holding structure for holding the X-ray filter and X-ray spectrometer in a first and second relative position, and for switching from the first to second relative position while simultaneously positioning a patient body part in a target region including a target point. An X-ray beam emitted from the X-ray source crosses the X-ray filter before reaching the target point. The propagation of the X-ray beam forms an angle different from 0° and 180° with the optical axis of the X-ray spectrometer. The second relative position is obtained by inverting the relative positions of the X-ray filter and X-ray spectrometer relative to the patient body part. A method of determining an X-ray dose delivered at a region of a patient body using the apparatus is provided.

  • Publication number: 20190175948
    Abstract: An apparatus for performing nanoparticle-assisted external beam radiotherapy includes an X-ray spectrometer having an optical axis, an X-ray filter, and a mobile holding structure suitable for holding the X-ray filter and the X-ray spectrometer in a first and a second relative position, and for switching from the first to the second relative position while simultaneously allowing the positioning of a patient body part in a target region including a target point; wherein: the first and second relative positions of the X-ray filter and the X-ray spectrometer are such that an X-ray beam emitted from the X-ray source crosses the X-ray filter before reaching the target point, a propagation direction of the X-ray beam forming an angle ? different from 0° and 180° with the optical axis of the X-ray spectrometer; and the second relative position is obtained by inverting the relative positions of the X-ray filter and of the X-ray spectrometer with respect to the patient body part.

  • Patent number: 8061654
    Abstract: A locking system, in particular a locking system for aircraft landing gears. A space-saving, simple construction and little maintenance requirement of the locking system is achieved by at least one electromechanical drive unit, whose torque is transmitted to a drive shaft with a cam disk via axle-crossing transmitting. With the torque, the cam disk can move the locking system from the locked into the unlocked condition.
