  • Patent number: 11298933
    Abstract: A system for transmitting rotational motion between a driving element and a driven element comprises a driving element that is coupled to a torque input that causes the driving element to rotate about a drive axis. The driving element comprises a first magnetic element. A driven element is configured to rotate about a driven axis. The driven element comprises a second magnetic element. Both the first magnetic element and second magnetic element are susceptible to a magnetic field, and at least one of the first and second magnetic element produces a magnetic field. A magnetic interaction between the first magnetic element and the second magnetic element couples the rotational motion of the driving element and the rotational motion of the driven element. The driving and driven elements are coupled at a predetermined rotational orientation with respect to each other.

  • Publication number: 20220054739
    Abstract: A fluid delivery device has a syringe barrel-type reservoir with plunger, and plunger driver assembly comprising double-acting, telescoping lead screws that is located behind and outside of the barrel. Simultaneously and counter-rotating sleeve screw and center screw telescope out of a nested configuration of the plunger driver assembly and into the reservoir at a rate of double their individual and equal pitch and lead parameters when the sleeve screw is rotated. A threaded nut and gear anchor disposed on an end of the barrel receive the sleeve screw and the threaded nut causes the sleeve screw to translate and rotate in response to motor operation. A distal end of the center screw can be keyed to a plunger pusher for anti-rotation constraint when the motor is imparting rotation on the threaded nut and sleeve screw.

  • Publication number: 20220054740
    Abstract: A fluid delivery device has a syringe barrel-type reservoir with plunger and plunger driver assembly comprising nested, telescopic screws comprising an innermost screw keyed to a first side of the plunger or intermediate pusher to prevent rotation. In a fully retracted position, the nested screws do not extend into the reservoir. The nested screws all have right handed threads and employ the same pitch in their respective inner thread and outer thread designs. The outermost screw is connected to a motor for controllable rotation. The decreasing torque ratios from the outermost to innermost screw member and anti-rotation feature allows the innermost screw to advance the plunger into the reservoir before the adjacent concentric screw member commences rotating and advancing within its corresponding screw, and so on, to translate the plunger and expel fluid in a fluid chamber defined on the other, second side of the plunger.

  • Patent number: 11215966
    Abstract: Methods and systems for installing and verifying installation of a fastener assembly using predictive verification. A method includes receiving, at a processor, at least one fastener assembly hole characteristic of a fastener assembly hole. The method further includes determining, via the processor, whether the at least one fastener assembly hole characteristic is within a predetermined range of fastener assembly hole variable and, upon determining the at least one fastener assembly hole characteristic is within the predetermined range of fastener assembly hole variables, transmitting instructions, via the processor, to a fastening device to initiate installation of a fastener assembly in the fastener assembly hole. The processor then receives at least one installation value of the fastener assembly and determines via the processor, whether the installation value is within a predetermined range of fastener installation variables.
