  • Publication number: 20210001390
    Abstract: A stranding machine is provided for producing a cord from a plurality of wires, preferably metal wires. The stranding machine has a stranding device for stranding the wires, including at least one rotatably mounted deflecting roller for deflecting the cord and at least one guide device for guiding the cord. The guide device is arranged in such a way that the cord can be guided on a straight line from the guide device to the deflecting roller in such a way that the cord is pressed against a first flank of the deflecting roller. As the cord is deflected by the deflecting roller, the cord moves from the first flank into the roller base of the deflecting roller.

  • Patent number: 10414226
    Abstract: Bearing bushes, for example, for a chassis of a motor vehicle are disclosed. A bearing bush may include a shaft, a hub, and an elastomer element which is arranged radially therebetween. The bearing bush may be configured to be switched between a first and second stiffness levels. The hub may have a main body and a plurality of radially adjustable plungers which are arranged in the main body. The plungers may be configured to engage the elastomer element and change the stiffness of the bearing bush from the first stiffness level to the second stiffness level. The elastomer element may have a plurality of radial elements arranged on the main body and configured to be compressed via a respective plunger in order to increase the stiffness of the bearing bush. An actuator including an electric motor may be configured to radially adjust the plungers in the main body.

  • Patent number: 8627607
    Abstract: Nonparallel sliding window guides guide a window for a motor vehicle. Each guide may have a guide rail. At least one guide has a fixed holding device mounted to the pane. At least one guide is attached to a holding device, in which the guide is movably mounted using an equalizing bearing. The equalization bearing comprises at least one movable interlink, preferably a pivotally movable interlink, wherein the interlink connects the guide rail to the holding device in a stabilizing manner to accommodate transverse and/or torsion forces that may act on the guide rail. The interlink engages with the guide via a control groove and control bolt. The distance between at least one guide and the sliding window changes depending on the displacement of the sliding window. The position of at least one guide relative to the mount also changes depending on the displacement of the sliding window.

  • Patent number: 8162950
    Abstract: A drill guide for a bone plate which has holes therethrough for receiving bone screws. The drill guide includes a guide block having drill guide bores alignable with at least two bone screw receiving holes in the bone plate. A first locking element in inserted through a guide block drill guide bore. The locking element has a tip for engaging a bone screw receiving holes in the bone plate, the tip being selectively expandable to engage and disengage from the bone plate hole. A second locking element is mounted on the guide block and is engageable with a bone plate hole. The second locking element also has a tip for resiliently engaging walls of the bone plate hole wherein the tip of the first and second locking elements has a split portion.

  • Publication number: 20110289732
    Abstract: The invention relates to a sliding window guide, in the case of which the guides, which guide the sliding window, do not run parallel, whereby the distance between the guides and the sliding window thus changes across the displacement path of the sliding window, wherein at least one of the guides encompasses a holding device, in which a guide rail is movably held by means of an equalizing bearing, so that the change of distance can be equalized via a displacement of the guide rail. To ensure a sufficient stability of the component in spite of the plurality of the components, which are movable relative to one another and in spite of the sliding window guide, which thus tends to be instable, provision is made for the guide rail and the holding device to be connected to one another via a pivotally movable holder, which is capable of accommodating transverse and/or torsion forces.

  • Publication number: 20070138832
    Abstract: The possibility of extrinsic force-actuated opening and closing sliding doors and windows of a motor vehicle, in particular by electric motors, is of known art. Also systems are applied that interrupt or reverse the closing movement of a sliding door or a window if too great a resistance opposes the extrinsic force-actuated movement. Thus in particular the trapping of extrinsic objects is detected and injuries or damage to objects are prevented. With a combination of sliding doors and windows that can open it is, however, also possible that extrinsic bodies protruding through an open window into the traversing range of the sliding door are caught by the sliding door movement.
