  • Patent number: 10672216
    Abstract: A system and method for using a mobile device to cause a vending machine to provide access to a product. After a calibration position is established within the mobile device, an accelerometer of the mobile device is used to determine a current location of the mobile device relative to the vending machine resulting from a movement of the mobile device from the calibration position. A product location to mobile device location mapping is then used to determine a one of a plurality of vending mechanisms associated with the vending machine that is to be activated given the determined current location of the mobile device. A signal may then be sent from the mobile device to the vending machine to instruct the vending machine to activate the determined one of the plurality of vending mechanisms.

  • Patent number: 8107871
    Abstract: Apparatuses useful for printing and methods of treating marking material on media are provided. An exemplary embodiment of the apparatuses includes a first member including a first outer surface; and a roll including a second outer surface forming a nip with the first outer surface. The second outer surface includes an inner portion having first and second axially-spaced edges, a roughened first high-friction surface axially outward from the first edge and a roughened second high-friction surface axially outward from the second edge. The first and second high-friction surfaces extend circumferentially around the roll and have a higher roughness than the inner portion. The inner portion and the first and second high-friction surfaces contact the first outer surface at the nip, and the first and second high-friction surfaces lie outside of a media path through the nip.

  • Publication number: 20110232828
    Abstract: There is described a method for producing a fuser member. A substrate is obtained and a fluoropolymer sleeve is positioned around an outer surface of the substrate. An elastomer is injected between the outer surface of the substrate and an inner surface of the sleeve to form a fuser member and demolded. The fuser member is conditioned at a first temperature of between about 30° C. below the melting point of the fluoropolymer and about 50° C. above the melting point of said fluoropolymer for about 1 to about 20 minutes. The fuser member is then optionally held at a second temperature of about 220° C. to about 260° C. for a period of about 4 hours to about 20 hours.

  • Patent number: 7805077
    Abstract: Systems and methods provide for the addition of DWDM modules to CWDM systems in order to increase bandwidth over existing lines. This allows for the expansion of communications capacity without the need to replace existing CWDM systems. The DWDM modules can be transparently inserted into the CWDM systems by, in the CWDM system, reserving a channels for use by the DWDM. The DWDM system then occupies that channel with a scalable number of DWDM wavelength channels, for example four, eight, or sixteen. The DWDM systems can be used in both single and dual fiber systems as well as ring systems. Use of single fiber systems is obtained by implementing coupling devices, such as interleavers, passband filters, and circulators, that can used in pairs to couple bidirectional signals over a single fiber.

  • Publication number: 20100236389
    Abstract: A detachable carrying handle for a firearm, such as a semi-automatic or automatic firearm, having increased range. The detachable carrying handle includes a carrying handle body that defines a window to receive a rear sight base of a rear sight. The carrying handle body further includes a pin opening positioned below the window that is configured to secure the rear sight base of the rear sight to the carrying handle body through the use of a pin. The rear sight base further defines a sight opening and a threaded end that is configured to mate with a threaded opening of an elevation knob positioned in the window. The elevation knob may be used, in operation, to adjust the height of the rear sight. The threaded end of the rear sight base further includes at least one elongated slot that are configured to receive the pin that is used to secure the rear sight base to the carrying handle body.

  • Patent number: 7541079
    Abstract: A fuser member suited to use in a fusing apparatus of an electrostatographic image rendering device includes a substrate and an outer layer over the substrate. The outer layer includes a matrix material and filler particles dispersed in the matrix material. At least some of the filler particles are formed from diamond, which may provide improved wear of the fuser member and may also provide the layer with improved thermal conductivity.

    Abstract: A fuser member suited to use in a fusing apparatus of an electrostatographic image rendering device includes a substrate and an outer layer over the substrate. The outer layer includes a matrix material and filler particles dispersed in the matrix material. an outer layer comprising a halopolymer and filler particles. The filler particles have a particle size of less than about 1 micrometer and a particle hardness of greater than about 3 on a Mohs hardness scale and form no more than about 3 percent by volume of the outer layer. The outer layer comprising filler particles nonetheless may provide improved wear of the fuser member.
