  • Patent number: 10854355
    Abstract: A stretchable conductor includes a substrate with a first major surface and an elongate wire, wherein the substrate is an elastomeric material, the elongate wire is on the first major surface of the substrate, the wire includes a first end and a second end, and further includes at least one arcuate region between the first end and the second end. At least one portion of the arcuate region of the wire in the region has a first surface area portion embedded in the surface of the substrate and a second surface area portion unembedded on the substrate and exposed in an amount sufficient to render at least an area of the substrate in the region electrically conductive. The unembedded second surface portion of the arcuate region may lie above or below a plane of the substrate. Additionally, different methods of preparing said stretchable conductor are disclosed. Composite articles including said stretchable conductor in durable electrical contact with a conductive fabric are also disclosed.

  • Patent number: 10806512
    Abstract: A coagulation suction device having an insulation cover and first and second bipolar wires. The insulation cover has a distal end and a distal opening formed at the distal end, and a hollow cavity configured to receive a hollow suction tube. The first and second bipolar wires are encapsulated within the insulation cover and extend along the insulation cover to the distal end. The first and second bipolar wires extend distally beyond a distal-most surface of the insulation cover, and each have an exposed distal end. The exposed distal ends are bent toward each other and terminate adjacent to and spaced apart from each other.

  • Publication number: 20200105991
    Abstract: Electronic devices including a layer of polymeric material and solid semiconductor dies partially embedded in the layer are provided. The dies have first ends projecting away from the first major surface of the layer. The electronic devices can be formed by sinking the first ends of the dies into a major surface of a liner. A flowable polymeric material is filled into the space between the dies and solidified to form the layer of polymeric material. The first ends of the dies are exposed by delaminating the liner from the first ends of the dies. Electrical conductors are provided on the layer to connect the first ends of the dies.

  • Publication number: 20190273061
    Abstract: Processes for automatic registration between a solid circuit die and electrically conductive interconnects, and articles or devices made by the same are provided. The solid circuit die is disposed on a substrate with contact pads aligned with channels on the substrate. Electrically conductive traces are formed by flowing a conductive liquid in the channels toward the contact pads to obtain the automatic registration.

  • Patent number: 5088260
    Abstract: A system and method regarding structural panels are disclosed which the structural panels have marginal edges with bevelled portions with increased surface area relative to non-bevelled edges. The bevelled surface areas are oriented in confronting relationship so as to define a longitudinal seam. An adhesive compound is provided in the seam. The adhesive compounds fills the volume between the opposing bevelled surfaces and provides sufficient shear and tensile strengths needed for joints. A finishing compound covers the adhesive compound wherein the finishing compound is compatible with both the adhesive compound and the structural panels.

  • Patent number: 4667447
    Abstract: A flexible, low mass coated abrasive sheet material magnetically held on a support surface of a magnetized pad providing more than 6 magnetic poles per inch in one direction along the support surface. The coated abrasive sheet material incorporates sufficient ferromagnetic material that only the force of magnetic attraction between the magnetized pad and the ferromagnetic material and any force applied to the sheet material through the magnetized pad normal to the support surface will produce sufficient static friction between the support surface and the coated abrasive sheet material to retain the abrasive coated sheet material on the support surface while it is driven by the magnetized pad to abrade a workpiece.
