  • Publication number: 20220076506
    Abstract: Systems, devices, and methods for synchronized clock in management. In an embodiment, a system enables users to clock in to a cloud computing platform over a network through remote clock in devices, regardless of whether the remote clock in devices are online or offline. A clock in manager on the platform is configured to communicate with clock in assistants on remote clock in devices and to manage clock in of users in self and group clock in modes. A predetermined threshold may be used to determine a match with respect to a captured image. A clock in manager may intelligently determine the predetermined threshold according to algorithms based on training data. Face scan guides, liveness detection, and fraud detection may be included. A report engine supports presentations of filtered data from a control panel including map displays of devices or clock in events according to geolocation.

    Abstract: The invention relates to a dynamic mixer for mixing at least two paste components of different volume proportions. Said mixer comprises a housing with at least two inlet openings and at least one outlet opening, a mixer element being rotatably mounted in a mixing chamber of said housing. The housing has at least one delay chamber comprising a limiting wall that blocks the paste stream in the direction of flow and at least one opening that opens into the mixing chamber, said opening(s) being set back in relation to the limiting wall. The mixer is particularly suitable for mixing paste components with a relatively high viscosity of, for example, greater than 800 Pas.
