  • Patent number: 10750617
    Abstract: A method of assembling a fully detachable microcircuit starts with obtaining a fabricated microcircuit housing with an upper surface, a lower surface, a first recess in the upper surface, a second recess in the lower surface, and a pin on the lower surface. A thermal layer is applied to the lower surface. A conductive elastomer signal pin connector and a ground pin connector are attached to a thin film circuit, and the thin film circuit with is inserted into the second recess with the conductive elastomer signal pin connector and the ground pin connector attached. A bonding target is applied to the upper surface. The bonding target and the microcircuit are connected with a bond wire. The microcircuit housing is screwed to a printed circuit assembly without bonding the microcircuit housing to the printed circuit assembly.

  • Publication number: 20190217993
    Abstract: A yogurt-based food product is packaged in a container, including a bottom wall and a sidewall, by depositing a mix-in in a center of the bottom wall and then driving the mix-in from the center of the bottom wall to the sidewall with a blast of gas. Afterwards, a dairy or plant-based product is deposited in the container. The mix-in is in contact with the bottom wall and the sidewall, and a height of the mix-in is greater at the sidewall than at a center point of the bottom wall.

  • Patent number: 7344462
    Abstract: A torque transfer device allows torque to be input at one point of the device and transferred to another point of the device, at which the power or torque is taken from the device. The device incorporates a continuous direct drive comprised of a plurality of alternating pins and links which advance each other to provide the drive. The direct drive communicates with drive sprockets, traveling through the drive sprockets to rotate the drive sprockets to transfer torque.

  • Publication number: 20040163620
    Abstract: A rotary engine is powered by pressure from gas or fluids. At least two pistons are positioned within a stator having an annular chamber. Pressure is provided between the pistons, which provides a force to push one piston relative to the other piston. One or more dogs control the travel of the pistons. Power is harvested from the pistons.

  • Patent number: 6193624
    Abstract: A torque transfer device allows torque to be input at one point of the device and transferred to another point of the device, at which the power or torque is taken from the device. The device incorporates a continuous direct drive comprised of a plurality of individual, and unconnected, pins which advance each other to provide the drive. The pins have enlarged ends and reduced centers. The centers of the pins ride on a centrally disposed shedder which acts as a guide rail. The direct drive communicates with the drive sprockets, traveling through the drive sprockets to rotate the drive sprockets to transfer torque.

  • Patent number: 5860335
    Abstract: A torque transfer device allows torque to be input at one point of the device and transferred to another point of the device at which the power or torque can be taken from the device. The device incorporates a direct drive means comprised which communicates with drive gears. An adjustment device which the drive gears allows for repositioning of the drive gears to accommodate wear or other expansion of the direct drive means.

  • Patent number: 5850769
    Abstract: A broaching cutter comprises a first shaft coupled to a cutter bit-carrying second shaft in such a way that the second shaft rotates when the first shaft rotates and is also radially displaceable with respect to the first shaft so that the second shaft revolves about the axis of the first shaft in a preselected pattern. A rotor on the end of the first shaft carries a connector in a slot in such a way that the connector is free to slide within the slot. The connector is attached to the second shaft and to a cam follower. As the connector slides, it displaces the second shaft radially with respect to the axis of rotation. The first shaft rotates within a stationary holder that has a cam race encircling the first shaft. The cam follower follows the cam race in the stationary holder, thereby varying the radial displacement of the connector. Thus, square, hexagonal or other shaped holes can be formed in a workpiece depending on the shape of the cam race.

  • Patent number: 5540122
    Abstract: A torque transfer tool which allows a torque input at one point of the tool, with the torque transferred to another point of the tool. Gears are connected by a direct drive means, contained within an elongate housing having a dog bone shape which is formed by gear housings on opposite ends of the elongate housing which are connected by a central housing. Chain guides are present on the interior of the housing where the gear housings join the central housing.

  • Patent number: 5540123
    Abstract: A torque transfer device allows torque to be input at one point of the device and transferred to another point of the device at which the power or torque can be taken from the device. The device incorporates a direct drive means comprised of a plurality of links having an arcuate shape of constant radius which form a continuous loop, with alternating links having an orifice. The direct drive means drives gears which have teeth which protrude into said orifice.
