  • Patent number: 10675993
    Abstract: A vehicle seat, which includes a seat part, for a motor vehicle. The seat part is fixed in place on a supporting device of the vehicle seat, said device being arranged below the seat part in the direction of a vertical axis of the vehicle seat and being able to travel together with the seat part in a longitudinal direction of the vehicle seat. The supporting device is designed as a base plate that has a front section, which, in the longitudinal direction, projects beyond a front edge of the seat part. The front section of the base plate is designed for resting the feet of an occupant of the vehicle seat. The invention further relates to a motor vehicle having such a vehicle seat.

  • Publication number: 20170352101
    Abstract: A computer-implemented rating system. An operations server defines a schedule of tasks to be performed on the equipment. An operator terminal capable of remote communications with the operations server and transmits operation-related data to the server. A damages server capable of communications with the operations server and for attributing a damage type identifier to a recognized disorder and an identifier of an originator probably liable for the damage, generates corresponding damage claims. An insurance server capable of communications with the damages server and receives damage claims. A rating engine for rating the operator, the originators and the insurance company based on damage estimation by operator, damages server and insurance company input. The system applies to insurance management in connection with at least one operator on equipment obtained by a plurality of equipment originators and an insurance company providing insurance for the equipment.

  • Patent number: 9580631
    Abstract: Methods of forming an adhesive composition including the steps of (a) combining a non-deaerated mixture comprising at least one free radically (co)polymerizable ethylenically-unsaturated material with a sealable packaging, wherein the packaging contains the non-deaerated mixture; (b) sealing the non-deaerated mixture in the packaging to form a sealed packaging; and (c) exposing the non-deaerated mixture in the sealed packaging to a source of ionizing radiation for a time sufficient to initiate (co)polymerization of at least a portion of the at least one free radically (co)polymerizable ethylenically-unsaturated material to form an adhesive composition in the sealed packaging. The (co)polymerization takes place essentially non-adiabatically.

  • Patent number: 4571315
    Abstract: Ceramic pellets, which may have, or not, nuclear fuel materials embedded therein, are formed by first preparing a gel by precipitation of metallic salts from solutions of their compounds at a concentration of at least 10 grams per liter, said solutions being added dropwise to a coagulation bath which contains, for example, ammonium or sodium hydroxide, whereafter the precipitated gel are fired, in one or two stages, to precondition them prior to the compaction to form the final pellets which are subsequently sintered at an appropriate temperature.

  • Patent number: 4358061
    Abstract: The instant invention is concerned with a cutting machine, and in particular with a meat grinder, having a cutting assembly arranged along a central axis of the meat grinder. The material to be ground is fed towards the cutting assembly which has at least one perforated disk provided with a central boss bore. At least one cutting blade rotates on a drive shaft in front of the first frontal area of the perforated disk. Separation and removal of the accumulated solid particles contained in the material being cut in front of the first frontal area is provided by the cutting blade and by channels or holes located in the area of the central axis.
