  • Publication number: 20190249693
    Abstract: The invention relates to a discharge pressure scale (30) consisting of at least one valve housing (41) having at least three fluid connection points in the form of a functional connector (A), a return flow connector (T) and a control connector (28), wherein a valve piston (52) is guided such that it moves longitudinally against the effect of an energy accumulator (42), moving from a respective opening or regulating position, against a valve seat (94), into a closed position, wherein the control (28) and return flow connectors (T) are separated from one another, characterised in that the fluid pressure present at the control connector (28) can be guided onto a pressure-active surface (A1*) of the valve piston (52) by means of a pressure compensation device (70) in such a way that it moves into its respective opening or regulating position in a pressure-compensated manner due to the force of the energy accumulator (42).

  • Publication number: 20130174066
    Abstract: In order to produce a graphical user interface for operating one or more machines, a graphical symbol library having a plurality of graphical control elements is created and stored. Furthermore, a function library comprising a plurality of function designations having associated classification information is created and stored. Function designations are selected from the function library for a user interface, and graphical control elements from the graphical symbol library are associated with the function designations. The graphical control elements are grouped and arranged in the user interface on the basis of the classification information, class-specific rules, and stored design rules. The user interface is displayed on a touch-sensitive display in accordance with the size of the display and function rights of a user. An electromechanical control element is provided for inputting a control command regardless of rights.

  • Patent number: 7556248
    Abstract: In order to produce final printed products (14) in the same compartment (12), a first product for insertion (22) is inserted into a first folded printed product (10), and a second product for insertion (28) is inserted into a second folded printed product (24). The printed products (10, 24) are displaced in the direction of the folds (16), and as a result each of the printed products (10, 24) has an edge section (26) projecting beyond the other printed product. This permits fault-free, simple access to each of the printed products (10, 24) in order to open and insert the products for insertion (22, 28).

  • Patent number: 7490821
    Abstract: Two folded and printed products (11, 12) are introduced into a pocket-like holding compartment (1) with respective ones of their side surfaces resting against each other and are moved in such position jointly along a processing section in a direction running transversely with respect to the folded edge. In the course of this movement, the printed products (11, 12) are displaced in opposite directions (H, I) relative to each other in the direction of their folded edge and toward opening elements (7, 8). The opening elements (7, 8) move between the two halves (11a, 11b; 12a, 12b) of the two printed products (11, 12) and have the effect that the two product halves (11a, 11b; 12a, 12b) are lifted off each other. Inserts are then inserted into the printed products (11, 12) opened simultaneously in this way. In a second embodiment, first and second clamping fingers (107, 111) act in conjunction with a pivotable separating element (113) to open the two printed products.
