  • Patent number: 10747191
    Abstract: The invention relates to a method for creating or machining toothings on workpieces in rolling machining engagement, in particular by gear shaping, in which an NC control of the rotary spindle drives of workpiece and tool comprises regulation of the rotation angle position of each particular spindle to setpoints depending on the process parameters associated with the process design underlying the method, wherein data containing information relating to a deflection, caused by the process forces that arise during machining and resulting in profile shape deviations on the workpiece, of the position of the tool flanks of tool and workpiece out of their position intended as per the process design, are used to determine a correction, taking the deflection into account, of the rotation angle position of workpiece spindle and/or tool spindle and thus to modify the setpoints of the regulation.

  • Patent number: 10725982
    Abstract: A method and system for deleting a node of a knowledge graph may be provided. The method comprises receiving knowledge graph data comprising nodes and edges, determining a first relevance degree value for a node and a second relevance degree value for the node, combining the first and the second relevance degree value and marking the node as deletable if the final relevance degree value is above a predefined relevance threshold value. The method comprises further applying queries against the knowledge graph, wherein at least a certain number of such queries invokes accessing of a node, marked as deletable, revising at least one of the first and second relevance degree value based on the accessing of the node marked as deletable, and deleting the node, marked as deletable, if over a predetermined period of time queries against the knowledge graph invoke no access of the node marked as deletable.

  • Patent number: 10539417
    Abstract: A computer-assisted method for determining dimensional properties of a measurement object using a coordinate measuring machine. An image representation of the measurement object is shown to a user and the user selects a first geometric element of the measurement object, resulting in the display of eligible test features for the selected first geometric element. The eligible test features are automatically determined from a plurality of typical test features stored in a database, by the selected first geometric element being assigned to one of a plurality of predefined measurement elements stored in the database. A defined measurement sequence is generated in a computer-assisted manner based on the test feature selected by the user. Individual measured values are recorded on the first geometric element using the defined measurement sequence.
