  • Patent number: 10828006
    Abstract: A method for calibrating a medical imaging device in terms of an image acquisition geometry, a method for performing a two-dimensional-three-dimensional registration based on corresponding calibration data, and a corresponding system are provided. Multiple images of a phantom are acquired using the imaging device in different positions of the phantom. A corresponding motion of the phantom from one position to a respective next position is tracked by a tracking device to keep continuous track of a spatial relation between the phantom and the imaging device. The medical imaging device is then calibrated based on the acquired images, corresponding recorded poses of the imaging device, and the tracked motion of the phantom.

  • Publication number: 20200306936
    Abstract: A workpiece support includes a workpiece support element and a suction device. A workpiece is mounted on a workpiece side of the workpiece support element during machining. Towards a remote lower side, the workpiece support element is permeable to a waste air flow loaded with machining-related emissions. The suction device includes a vacuum generator and a suction line. The vacuum generator is configured to generate the waste air flow flowing from the workpiece side to the lower side, to suck off the waste air flow into the suction line in a flow direction and to subsequently discharge the waste air flow via the suction line. The suction line has a suction opening having a flow cross section which can be passed by the waste air flow in the flow direction. An opening width of the flow cross section and/or a position of the suction opening can be variably adjusted.

  • Patent number: 10669143
    Abstract: The invention relates to a cartridge housing comprising a diluting means, especially a water supply, a mixing chamber in which the diluting means and a beverage and/or food substrate are mixed, and an outlet. The cartridge housing is fitted with a hollow rod such that the sealing film of the cartridge is pierced as soon as the cartridge is inserted into the cartridge housing, thereby creating the flow connection between the cartridge and a mixing chamber.

  • Publication number: 20200093456
    Abstract: A method for recording image data of a moving, (e.g., cyclically moving), region of interest of a patient by a medical imaging system with an X-ray source and an X-ray detector, wherein a robotic device with a kinematic chain of moving components has a tactile connection with the patient, and wherein, the tactile connection is maintained at least for a prespecified period. The method includes acquiring measured values by sensors of the robotic device, evaluating the measured values and forwarding to the medical imaging system, wherein the evaluated measured values include information on the movement and/or position of the region of interest, and irradiation of the region of interest by the radiation source and recording of image data of the irradiated region of interest by the X-ray detector, and wherein the evaluated measured values are used to actuate the imaging system.

  • Publication number: 20190176282
    Abstract: A laser machine for machining workpieces has a workpiece support that forms a support main plane and is permeable to air perpendicularly to the support main plane. Supply air is directed to an upper side of the workpiece support. Air that is contaminated due to machining is discharged as exhaust air from the upper side of the workpiece support through the workpiece support to the bottom side of the workpiece support. In order to generate a laminar supply air flow which is perpendicular to the upper side of the workpiece support, the flow cross section of the supply air channel is divided into partial cross sections by partial cross sectional walls.
