  • Publication number: 20220267041
    Abstract: A rotary filling machine includes a rotatable fill plate with fill openings defined therein, a plurality of circumferentially spaced drop buckets mounted above the fill plate and configured to rotate with the fill plate, and a rotating mounting plate mounted on top of the fill plate and disposed below the drop buckets. Each drop bucket includes an inner radial wall, an outer radial wall, a first sidewall, and a second sidewall surrounding a volume bounded by top and bottom openings. A coupler for each drop bucket includes a first connector, such as a socket, extending from an outer surface of the inner radial wall and a mating connector, such as a post, extending upwardly from the mounting ring. A plurality of ridges or protrusions are formed on a side surface of at least one of the walls to reduce the planar surface area available for adhesion to materials being dispensed.

  • Patent number: 11300243
    Abstract: A track system on which a skater dolly can roll, comprising one or more pairs of rails and one or more rail clamps. Each rail clamp supports one or two pairs of rails. Rails held side-by-side are parallel to each other. Rail clamps can also secure two rails in end-to-end configuration. The distance between rails can be about 5/16 of an inch. The track system can include a skater dolly, the load-bearing wheels of which are angled 20-30 degrees away from vertical to provide clearance past the rail clamps. The skater also has stabilizing wheels that are approximately perpendicular to the load-bearing wheels, and which secure the skater to the rails when the skater is in a non-upright e.g. upside-down orientation. The system can include a motor pulley system that moves the skater along the rails.

  • Patent number: 10857316
    Abstract: A vaporizer pen for heating and vaporizing a liquid product that is ingested by a user has an outer hollow tube with a proximal end and a distal end and an inner hollow tube within the outer hollow tube having a proximal end and a distal end. The inner tube defines a chamber inside. A mouthpiece abuts the proximal end of the outer hollow tube and an atomizing chamber is positioned within the outer hollow tube and abuts the distal end of the inner hollow tube. A porous stone has a proximal stone end and a distal stone end and is configured to retain the liquid product. The porous stone is positioned within the hollow inner tube and the distal stone end is in contact with the atomizing chamber. A heating element is in communication with the atomizing chamber and is constructed of a ceramic material.

  • Patent number: 10628238
    Abstract: Systems, methods, and apparatus for separately loading and managing foreground work and background work of an application. In some embodiments, a method is provided for use by an operating system executing on at least one computer. The operating system may identify at least one foreground component and at least one background component of an application, and may load the at least one foreground component for execution separately from the at least one background component. For example, the operating system may execute the at least one foreground component without executing the at least one background component. In some further embodiments, the operating system may use a specification associated with the application to identify at least one piece of computer executable code implementing the at least one background component.

  • Patent number: 9952897
    Abstract: One or more techniques and/or systems are provided for suspending logically related processes associated with an application, determining whether to resume a suspended process based upon one or more wake policies, and/or managing an application state of an application, such as timer and/or system message data. That is, logically related processes associated with an application, such as child processes, may be identified and suspended based upon logical relationships between the processes (e.g., a logical container hierarchy may be traversed to identify logically related processes). A suspended process may be resumed based upon a set of wake policies. For example, a suspended process may be resumed based upon an inter-process communication call policy that may be triggered by an application attempting to communicate with the suspended process. Application data may be managed while an application is suspended so that the application may be resumed in a current and/or relevant state.

  • Patent number: 9836601
    Abstract: Anti-malware process protection techniques are described. In one or more implementations, an anti-malware process is launched. The anti-malware process is verified based at least in part on an anti-malware driver that contains certificate pairs which contain an identity that is signed with the trusted certificate from a verified source. After the anti-malware process is verified, the anti-malware process may be assigned a protection level, and an administrative user may be prevented from altering the anti-malware process.

  • Patent number: 9772838
    Abstract: A firmware update system is described that collectively handles firmware updates for hardware resources of a computing device. The firmware update system may be configured to handle firmware updates in a consistent manner across different computing platforms/architectures. A data structure is defined to associate each updateable resource with a corresponding identifier to enumerate the updateable resources to the firmware update system. The firmware update system may reference the data structure to produce representations of the each individual resource that provide an operating system level abstraction through which detection, analysis, acquisition, deployment, installation, and tracking of firmware updates is managed. Using the representations, the firmware update system operates to discover available firmware updates collectively for the enumerated resources, match the updates to appropriate resources, and initiate installation of the updates.

  • Patent number: 9701294
    Abstract: A spring-type brake actuator for a vehicle brake such as a pneumatically-actuated brake is provided, in which the actuator's operating rod is pulled toward the actuator to apply the brake. The actuator's parking brake release piston is located closer to the brake than the service brake piston, and the parking brake power spring is positioned between the mounting end of the actuator and the parking brake piston such that when parking brake release pressure is removed from the parking brake release chamber the parking brake piston biases the operating rod in the brake application direction, drawing the operating rod further into the actuator.
