  • Publication number: 20190358900
    Abstract: A method is disclosed for making an article with an additive manufacturing machine that includes a build platform (14) and an additive material dispensing nozzle (18) for controlled application of the additive material with respect to a location of the build platform. The method includes attaching a first part (24a) to the build platform. The first part includes a first mating surface that includes a protruding portion (34) and a recessed portion (32). A digital model of a second part that includes a second mating surface comprising recessed and protruding portions (39, 38) complementary to the first mating surface is inputted to the additive manufacturing machine. The nozzle dispenses and hardens an incremental quantity of a polymer material to the first mating surface according to the digital model, and successively-dispensed incremental quantities of polymer material are applied and hardened according to the digital model to produce the article including first and second parts.

  • Publication number: 20190002663
    Abstract: A structure includes a thermoplastic foam body having first and second major surfaces, and channels extending partially or fully through the foam body and terminating at one or both major surfaces. The surfaces of some or all of the channels are reinforced, providing the structure with increased compressive strength. The structure, which can include a skin on either or both of the major surfaces, is useful for forming aviation interior components, including aviation overhead containers, aviation interior wall panels, and aviation trays.

  • Patent number: 7935325
    Abstract: Rare earth-activated aluminum nitride powders are made using a solution-based approach to form a mixed hydroxide of aluminum and a rare earth metal, the mixed hydroxide is then converted into an ammonium metal fluoride, preferably a rare earth-substituted ammonium aluminum hexafluoride ((NH4)3Al1-xRExF6), and finally the rare earth-activated aluminum nitride is formed by ammonolysis of the ammonium metal fluoride at a high temperature. The use of a fluoride precursor in this process avoids sources of oxygen during the final ammonolysis step which is a major source of defects in the powder synthesis of nitrides. Also, because the aluminum nitride is formed from a mixed hydroxide co-precipitate, the distribution of the dopants in the powder is substantially homogeneous in each particle.

  • Publication number: 20060290284
    Abstract: A method of making a mercury-free fluorescent lamp in which a layer of phosphor particles are applied to an exterior surface of the lamp envelope, includes preparing a sol-gel precursor solution that, when dried, leaves a sol-gel residue material, such as thin film SiO2, that coats the phosphor particles and resists removal of the phosphor particles from the exterior surface, dipping the envelope into the sol-gel precursor solution, and, after removing the envelope from the solution, drying the sol-gel precursor solution to form a network of the sol-gel residue material on the exterior surface that meshes with the layer of phosphor particles. The sol-gel residue material attaches the phosphor particles to the exterior surface with sufficient strength so that the lamp can be handled as if the layer of phosphor particles were on the interior of the envelope.

  • Patent number: 7001665
    Abstract: A moisture-resistant electroluminescent phosphor is provided wherein the individual phosphor particles have a first coating of an inorganic moisture-resistant coating and a second coating of an organic moisture-resistant coating. The process for making the moisture-resistant phosphor comprises applying a first layer of an inorganic moisture-resistant coating to individual particles of an electroluminescent phosphor to form a first-coated phosphor, substantially isolating said first-coated phosphor from contact with atmospheric oxygen and moisture, and applying a second layer of an organic moisture-resistant coating to the first-coated phosphor to form a second-coated phosphor.

  • Patent number: 6773813
    Abstract: A new fluidized bed particle coating method is disclosed by the use of which coatings can be uniformly and conveniently deposited on the surfaces of fluidized particulate materials by vapor deposition processes at temperatures lower than those of the heated coating precursor transport lines. By this method, particle materials with relatively low surface temperatures may be brought into close proximity with a coating precursor containing gas stream characterized by a substantially higher gas volume temperature in such a way that the vaporized precursor molecules are caused to adsorb or condense on the relatively cold particle surfaces without also condensing on any other surface. Further, if the adsorbed precursor molecules are capable of reacting or polymerizing on the relatively cold particle surfaces, thus forming substantially continuous coatings on those surfaces, they may do so without also depositing such coatings on any other surfaces.
