  • Publication number: 20200238573
    Abstract: The invention relates to a device for impregnating fiber bundles with a polymer melt, in which device fiber bundles, which are inserted in parallel with one another into a slot-like infeed of an impregnation unit (4), are guided through between two guide plates (16, 17), which have undulating surfaces and are arranged so as to be complementary to one another at a defined spacing, and are discharged from the impregnation unit (4) via an outlet (28), the fiber bundles being saturated with the polymer melt while passing through the impregnation unit (4), which polymer melt following the slot-like infeed is introduced between the guide plates (16, 17) into the passage (29). According to the invention, the impregnation unit (4) comprises at least two passages (29) for a defined number of fiber bundles in each case, the passages (29) each comprising an inlet (26) for polymer melt.

  • Patent number: 10689726
    Abstract: A process for producing a spring or torsion bar from a steel wire by hot forming may involve providing a steel wire; thermomechanically forming the steel wire; cooling the steel wire thermomechanically; cutting the steel wire to length to give rods; heating the rods; hot forming the rods; and tempering the rods to give a spring or torsion bar, comprising quenching the rods to give a spring or torsion bar to a first cooling temperature, reheating the spring or torsion bar to a first annealing temperature, and cooling the spring or rod to a second cooling temperature. Further, in some examples, the cooling of the steel wire may be cooled to a temperature below a minimum recrystallization temperature such that at least a partly ferritic-pearlitic structure is established in the steel wire.

  • Patent number: 8046619
    Abstract: A network apparatus includes an independent power supply providing a first power signal, and a data distribution device which is operably coupled to the independent power supply and a remote data distribution device, where the remote distribution data device exchanges data and provides a second power signal to the data distribution device, and further where the data distribution device selects the first power signal or the second power signal for operational power. A method includes scanning a plurality of sensors, each coupled to a plurality of power inputs, to ascertain if a power signal is present, determining whether a power signal associated with an independent power supply is present at a power input, sourcing power from the independent power supply if the power signal is associated with an independent power supply, and sourcing power from an alternative supply if the power signal is not associated with an independent power supply.

  • Publication number: 20090123730
    Abstract: The invention relates to a surface of an object, especially a heat exchanger, e.g. a lateral part, a wavy rib, or a tube of a heat exchanger, which is to be soldered by means of a flux layer (2). In order to improve the properties of the surface that is to be soldered, said surface is provided with at least one more layer (3; 13, 16) in addition to the flux layer (2). The at least one more layer (3; 13; 16) contains an additive which modifies the surface to be soldered, said additive being reacted in order to modify the surface when the surface that is to be soldered is soldered.

  • Patent number: 6472783
    Abstract: The invention relates to a brushless, electronically commuted motor, more particularly one used as drive motor for a ventilator drive mechanism in an automobile, comprising a permanent magnetic outer rotor (5), in which a stator (7) with three winding wires staggered at 120° el is mounted, in addition to several winding coils for each winding wire. The pitch of the coil of the winding coils (15-37) is s smaller than the pitch of the pole and 0.5 coils are wound per pole and wire (9, 11, 13). A flat, compact, light-weight, silent and efficient EC motor (1) is obtained due to the fact that each winding wire consists of several parallel-connected windings, the outer rotor (5) has at least p=3 pole pairs and a control plate with conductor rails is provided to connect the individual winding coils.
