  • Patent number: 10645833
    Abstract: A device includes a joining partner, which protrudes at a submersion depth into a recess filled at least partially with a fixing element in a substrate surface of a substrate. A compensating element is situated between the joining partner and the fixing element. The compensating element is situated at least partially in the fixing element within the submersion depth of the joining partner. Accordingly, the compensating element is in contact with the joining partner and with the fixing element. In this way, an expansion change or a movement of the fixing element, of the substrate or of the joining partner may be compensated for by a compression or elongation of the compensating element. A crack formation may be avoided or its effect may be minimized by the sealing function.

  • Patent number: 10322490
    Abstract: A honing tool has a tool body and shells disposed on the tool body. Honing stone sets each provided with two or more honing stones are provided. The shells each support one of the honing stone sets. Guide bars of the honing tool are placed against the bore and a portion of the bore is conically honed with decreasing stroke of the honing tool, wherein a lower reversing point of the honing tool remains substantially unchanged. Honing is terminated as soon as an upper reversing point has reached a predetermined terminal value. Alternatively, a portion of the bore is conically honed with a constant stroke of the honing tool, wherein reversing points of the stroke of the honing tool remain substantially unchanged and a feeding force pressing the honing stones against the bore is controlled as a function of a position of the honing tool in the bore.
