  • Publication number: 20210375121
    Abstract: A wearable device and a system that includes the wearable device is provided. The wearable device includes at least one sensor configured to sense a characteristic of a user, a communication interface configured to obtain a first identifier of a vehicle or equipment, and a controller. The controller is configured to monitor the user based on the first identifier or send the first identifier to a monitoring system; determine whether there is a harm possibly occurring to the user of the wearable device based on at least one output from the at least one sensor, or send the at least one output to the monitoring system via the communication interface; and output, after the harm is determined to be possibly occurring, an alarm based on receiving confirmation from the user, or based on not receiving any confirmation from the user within a predetermined amount of time.

  • Patent number: 10562037
    Abstract: Disclosed is a data logging apparatus comprising a mixer grinder which includes a tub configured to hold a product, a rotatable shaft, at least one mixing blade connected to the rotatable shaft, a grinding chamber, and a feed screw leading to a grinding head. The data logging apparatus includes a first temperature sensor attached to the tub, a second temperature sensor attached to the grinding chamber at an outlet downstream from the grinding head, a memory storing a predetermined temperature threshold, and a processor. The processor is configured to receive temperature data transmitted from the first temperature sensor and the second temperature sensor, determine whether an abnormality has occurred based on received temperature data and the predetermined temperature threshold, and issue an alert indicative of machine malfunction or maintenance issues.

  • Patent number: 9433226
    Abstract: A vacuum tumbling system for marinating meat including a vacuum sensor; an airtight driver; an outer vacuum chamber configured to monitor and pull a vacuum; and an inner vacuum tumbling chamber configured to enclose a marinade mixture, liquid, and the meat, configured to be disposed inside the outer vacuum chamber, and configured to pull the vacuum from the outer vacuum chamber through a small hole which is recessed on a bottom surface of the inner vacuum tumbling chamber. The outer vacuum chamber monitors the vacuum through the vacuum sensor, pulls the vacuum through the airtight driver, and tumbles the inner vacuum tumbling chamber in response to the airtight driver being driven.

  • Patent number: 6890655
    Abstract: A diamond coated cutting tool that has a treated substrate and a diamond coating thereon. In the process of making the substrate, the sintered substrate is re-sintered to form a re-sintered substrate and the re-sintered substrate is chemically treated to remove cobalt on the surface of the re-sintered substrate as to form a treated substrate.

  • Patent number: 6287682
    Abstract: A process for making a diamond-coated tool and the tool made thereby. The process includes a sintering step. In that step, the tool substrate is sintered in an atmosphere and for a time and at a temperature so that superficial, exaggerated grain growth is promoted that imparts a surface roughness which may serve as anchoring sites during a subsequent diamond coating step which is performed by a vapor deposition technique. The diamond-coated tool prepared by the process includes a large grain substrate surface, and an high bond strength between the diamond coating and the substrate surface.
