  • Patent number: 8015938
    Abstract: Coating zones having guide elevated rails for coating and/or handling robots are disclosed. The coating zones may include walk-in control areas positioned one above the other on the outside of the side walls. In the upper control area, in which control and supply devices for robots on elevated guide rails may be provided, the side wall may generally slant inward. Load-bearing structures for the elevated guide rails may be braced by supporting members extending generally perpendicular to the line of conveyance of the application objects on or under the floor level or at the ceiling.

  • Publication number: 20060261192
    Abstract: A robotic paint applicator and a method of protecting a paint robot having an explosion proof electric motor. A plurality of electric motors are enclosed by a substantially air-tight motor housing and have a gas inlet and a gas outlet. A robot enclosure is also substantially air-tight and houses at least one electric motor. A source of non-combustible gas supplies gas at pressures sufficient to purge and to maintain positive non-combustible gas pressures. The plurality of electric motors is serially connected and receives gas through a first gas inlet. A first discharge conduit is coupled to an air outlet of the final electric motor for expelling gas. A second conduit transmits gas from the source to the robot enclosure, and a second discharge conduit expels gas from the robot enclosure. A transfer block separately controls the gas pressures from the source.

  • Patent number: 6835248
    Abstract: A robotic paint applicator having a plurality of relatively movable housing enclosures each including an explosion proof motor including a housing having a gas inlet and outlet, and a source of non-combustible gas under pressure connected to each motor housing inlet circulating non-combustible gas through the motor housing and directing non-combustible gas into the robot housing enclosures. The robot housing enclosures are substantially air-tight and interconnected with a control unit operating an inlet valve to maintain a predetermined pressure of non-combustible gas within each robot housing enclosure. The method of this invention includes purging the motor housings and robot enclosures at a first pressure and maintaining a lesser pressure of non-combustible gas following purging.

  • Patent number: 6669939
    Abstract: The present invention relates to (poly)peptides, which are recognized by anti-HHV8 antibodies of HHV-8 infected patients, whereby these (poly)peptides are not naturally occurring HHV-8 proteins. The present invention further relates to polymers, comprising at least two identical or different peptides according to the invention as well as conjugates, comprising said peptides and/or polymers thereof. Furthermore, this invention provides mixtures, comprising said peptides and/or polymers thereof, which are used to detect anti-HHV-8 antibodies with high sensitivity and specificity. In addition, the present invention relates to a diagnostic kit, comprising said peptides, polymers and/or mixtures thereof, which can be used for the detection of anti-HHV-8 antibodies and for the diagnosis of an HHV-8 infection, respectively.

  • Patent number: 6222552
    Abstract: A Z-cache is provided for use in rasterizing computer generated images. The Z-cache allows for caching depth information such that a depth buffer may be implemented in system memory without degradation in performance of a depth routine for determining the visible information in a display. The Z-cache may store and compare pixel depth information. Thus, methods of using a z-cache in a graphics system as well as a graphics system, a processing system and a rasterizer are provided which utilize a Z-cache.
