  • Patent number: 7717697
    Abstract: Disclosed is a preferred mold design for producing plastic, molded preforms, which may be blow-molded into a container of a final, desired shape. A preferred mold includes a temperature control system for maintaining the preform mold at a desired temperature. The temperature control system can pass fluid through channels within the preform mold to cool plastic that is injected into the preform mold. In some arrangements, a mold comprises a neck finish mold, the neck finish mold configured to transfer heat away from the molding surface toward a channel conveying a working fluid. A heat transfer member may be at least partially positioned within the channel to transfer heat to the working fluid. In some embodiments, the mold comprises a high heat transfer material.

  • Patent number: 5601346
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a process and a device for the prevention of skidding in vehicles with at least two wheels (1-4) of which at least one (1, 4) is steerable, wherein the actual rotary acceleration of the vehicle along its vertical axis is measured by a rotary accelerometer (8) and compared with the nominal rotary acceleration which is determined by a computer (9) from the turn angle of the steerable wheels (1, 4) and the vehicle speed. The turn angle is measured by an angle measuring device (6), for example, at a steering wheel (5). The speed is measured with a speed pick-up (7) on at least one of the wheels (1-4) of the vehicle. The calculated difference between nominal and actual rotary acceleration is reduced to zero by the real-time generation of a compensation-torque in a device (10). This device (10) might consist of an electric motor (11) driving two contra-rotating flywheels (12) that are selectively decelerated and will stop the skidding process.

  • Patent number: 5573056
    Abstract: A stream of overheated metal melt is applied from a container through a pouring nozzle as a closed jet, or in such a way as to be split up into drops by a gaseous medium, at a pouring point, to the inner surface of a strip coil or composite body also rotating in a mold body. Thus, an initially liquid metal film is produced to which a liquid coolant, preferably a low-temperature liquefied gas such as argon or nitrogen, is applied from a cooling nozzle at a cooling point which is offset in the direction of rotation relative to the pouring point. The coolant dissipates a substantial portion of the excess and melt heat of the metal film, mostly due to vaporization of the liquid coolant. Depending on the residual heat which it still has after the cooling operation, the metal film either remains isolated from the innermost metal layer applied beforehand, so that a strip coil develops, or melts with the metal layer so that a rotationally symmetrical composite body forms.

  • Patent number: 5174832
    Abstract: A method for manufacturing a device for contactless and digital measurement of a linear or angular condition of a first piece with respect to a second piece. A series of ferromagnetic encoding marks are provided onto a non-magnetic substrate of one of the pieces. The encoding marks are produced by a strongly local heating of the surface of a non-magnetic substrate of an austenitic steel stabilized by a metalloid in interstitial solution. Displacement, speed and acceleration of a linear or angular kind of one piece with respect to a second piece can thereby be measured with great accuracy.

  • Patent number: 5094699
    Abstract: A method of manufacturing high strength and hard metallic composite layer materials by connecting several metal layers with one another, includes forming the metal layers as flat products by rolling from a metal with low base strength, alloying and hardening the flat products over their whole cross-section with a metalloid by heat treatment in a metalloid containing gas atmosphere, then connecting the flat products with one another by diffusion welding. As metalloids preferably nitrogen, boron and carbon are used. Diffusion welding is performed by hot isostatic pressure method.
