  • Patent number: 10556267
    Abstract: A die is supported in a die holder such as a frame or an adapter supported in a frame such that it is operational use in a material deforming operation. One or both of the die and the die holder have at least one gas passage which is substantially closed by at least part of the die. Gas such as pressurised air is directed into an end of the gas passage opposite the die via a hose connected to a gas source. If the die is broken or loose leak paths are available for the escape of gas past the die to or from atmosphere. A pressure sensor connected to the hose detects the change in pressure of the gas and the magnitude of that pressure is used to determine the die condition. Alternatively a flow rate sensor is used to detect a change in the flow rate of the gas in order to determine the condition of the die.

  • Patent number: 10230220
    Abstract: A motor control unit (MCU) and methods of operating the same are provided. The MCU includes a housing enclosing a retractable stab assembly (RSA) having stabs attached thereto. The MCU further includes a bracket assembly having a mount for securing the bracket assembly to the RSA, guiderails for slideably engaging the RSA to facilitate the extending and retracting motion, and a lead screw accessible via an opening in the front of the housing. Rotating the lead screw causes the RSA to extend and retract which engages and disengages the stabs. The MCU also includes a motor assembly having a drive motor coupled to a drive shaft. The motor rotates the shaft in response to control signals from a remote-device. The motor assembly attaches to the housing such that the rotation of the shaft in response to the signals rotates the lead screw to engage and disengage the stabs.

  • Patent number: 9963938
    Abstract: A drilling motor for directional drilling in a wellbore has a drill bit at a downhole end, a bent housing having a first bend spaced above the drill bit and defining a first angle, the first bend having an inside bend surface and an outside bend surface, and a guide element that biases the first bend toward the first angle when the bent housing is positioned within a straight section of the wellbore. The guide element may be a pad, a centralizer or a second bend in the bent housing.

  • Publication number: 20170206597
    Abstract: A method for automatically allocating funds between financial systems includes receiving a weighting preference between multiple variables and determining an allocation scheme according to the weighting preference. The method also includes receiving funds and apportioning the received funds between multiple financial transactions associated with the variables according to allocation scheme. The method further includes requesting distribution of the received funds between the financial transactions in accordance with the apportioning. Receiving the weighting preference may include receiving a request for a weighting between the variables, generating a field having a polygon having vertices representing the variables, and receiving an input within the field, where the input corresponds to a selection point.

  • Publication number: 20170206526
    Abstract: A method of prompting a user includes receiving transaction information from an account associated with the user and determining a financial situation that may motivate the user to take a financial action. The method also includes, in response to determining the financial situation, presenting to the user a prompt displaying a tangible item having an associated monetary value. The tangible item is associated with a transaction in which the user has engaged. The method further includes suggesting the user take the financial action related to the tangible item. The financial action could include requesting the monetary value be transferred to a financial account. Presenting the prompt could include presenting multiple tangible items each having a different associated monetary value. The method may also include updating the monetary values based on which of the monetary values associated with the tangible items is requested to be transferred into the financial account.

  • Publication number: 20170206598
    Abstract: A method for prompting a user includes determining a threshold value for a defined time period and determining if the user has received funds in excess of the threshold value within the time period. The method also include, in response to determining that the user has received the funds in excess of the threshold value within the time period, prompting the user to deposit at least part of the funds in excess of the threshold value into an account. The method may further include receiving transaction information from the account or another account associated with the user. Determining the threshold value may include creating a statistical model of total transaction value for a time period analogous with the defined time period based on historical transaction information and selecting a value within norms of the statistical model as the threshold value.

  • Publication number: 20170032459
    Abstract: A method for receiving information via a short message service (SMS) type interface includes determining an input variable and generating an SMS-type prompt including a query for an input of a value corresponding to the input variable. The method also includes transmitting the generated SMS-type prompt to a remote device, receiving a value responsive to the requested input variable, and storing the received value in a memory. The input variable could be bounded and could be presented in an unbounded structure or context in the SMS-type prompt. Generating the SMS-type prompt could include generating a text paragraph having multiple variable fields, where each of the variable fields is configured to receive a value and display an output variable at different times and the variable fields are linked with each other through one or more calculations.

  • Patent number: 9271421
    Abstract: The arc-resistant MCC is provided with either the expansion chamber or the plenum. Arc flashes create pressure. Different arc-resistant MCC bases are used depending on whether the expansion chamber or the plenum is to be attached, as the expansion chamber and the plenum deal with the created pressure in different ways and are accordingly attached to the MCC base in different ways.
