  • Publication number: 20200331078
    Abstract: The subject invention is directed to metal working operations and, more particularly, to machining heat resistant super alloys (HRSAs) such as titanium alloys with polycrystalline diamond cutting inserts sintered on a carbide substrate. Using at least one cutting insert mounted upon a rotary toolholder and wherein the at least one cutting insert has a substrate with a top layer of PCD secured thereto over no less than 1/3 of a substrate top surface, a method of machining heat resistant super alloys (HRSAs) is made up of the steps of rotating the rotary toolholder such that an insert surface speed rate is above 50 meters per minute and adjusting a tool feed rate (advance per tooth per revolution) and/or radial engagement of the toolholder such that the machining operation produces chips having a thickness of approximately 0.050-0.200 millimeters.

  • Publication number: 20190242888
    Abstract: Viruses and other bioagents are of high medical and biodefense concern and their detection at concentrations well below the threshold necessary to cause health hazards continues to be a challenge with respect to sensitivity, specificity, and selectivity. Ideally, assays for accurate and real time detection of viral agents and other bioagents would not necessitate any pre-processing of the analyte, which would make them applicable for example to bodily fluids (blood, sputum) and man-made as well as naturally occurring bodies of water (pools, rivers). We describe herein a robust biosensor that combines the sensitivity of surface acoustic waves (SAW) generated at a frequency of 325 MHz with the specificity provided by antibodies and other ligands for the detection of viral agents.

  • Patent number: 7748206
    Abstract: The harvester incorporates a system and method for detecting rigid standing objects such as reinforced posts in the harvester's path and responsively reducing forces exerted by harvesting apparatus of the harvester against the object. The harvesting apparatus including at least one member movable in contact with the plants by a drive for exerting forces for detaching the fruit. At least one sensor is disposed and operable for sensing a rigid object in advance of being contacted by the member or members. In response, the movements of the member or members will be reduced or altered at an appropriate time and duration for reducing forces exerted against the object while protecting harvest yield.

  • Patent number: 5282389
    Abstract: An improvement in an apparatus for processing an agricultural crop, which processing apparatus has structure for separating waste from a crop to provide a clean yield product and an elevator for raising and delivering clean yield product to a point of use such as a bin, or the like. The improvement is a structure including an actuating arm for producing a signal indicative of a pressure being applied to the actuating arm. The signal producing structure is mounted to the crop processing apparatus so that the actuating arm intercepts clean yield product discharging from the elevator. This pressure value can be correlated with other data, i.e. combine width, elevator speed, forward speed of the crop processing apparatus, material density (lbs/bundle) to generate a flow rate value that can be continuously plotted to generate a yield map for a field.

  • Patent number: 4147610
    Abstract: An electrical apparatus for detecting improper operation in the electrolytic plating or etching of a workpiece. Three connections are made from the electrical detection circuit to the work area at the plating or etching tank, namely to the anode bus bar, the cathode bus bar, and the workpiece being processed. In the detection circuit are two polarity sensing devices, which in conjunction with other electrical and manual switching devices, indicators, timers and alarms can detect incorrect operation of the plating or etching process and notify the operator accordingly. Furthermore, in the case where the operator fails to respond to a warning indicator the apparatus disclosed automatically initiates shutdown of the process in operation.
