  • Patent number: 10881193
    Abstract: A personal hygiene device has a handle, a treatment head, and a motor carrier disposed in the handle. The motor is pivot-mounted against at least one spring element arranged between the handle and the motor carrier. The motor has a stator portion fixedly mounted at the motor carrier and an armature portion spring mounted at the motor carrier to allow a motion relative to the motor carrier. The armature portion is coupled with a drive shaft connected with the treatment head for transferring motion thereto, wherein an external treatment force acting on the brush head leads to pivoting of the motor carrier relative to the handle. The motor has a motor permanent magnet and a coil for providing an alternating electromagnetic field interacting therewith to excite an oscillating motion of the drive shaft.

  • Patent number: 10808323
    Abstract: A nozzle assembly for a cold spray deposition system includes a nozzle body with an axial bore. The axial bore defines a converging segment, a diverging segment downstream of the converging segment, and a throat fluidly connected between the converging and diverging segments of the axial bore. A particulate conduit is fixed within the axial bore and extends along the axial bore diverging segment for issuing solid particulate into the diverging segment of the axial bore.

  • Patent number: 10737594
    Abstract: The invention relates to a foot prop adapted to be attached to a child safety seat, comprising an elongate component, comprising an upper portion and a lower portion, wherein the lower portion is slidable relative to the upper portion in longitudinal direction of the elongate component. The foot prop is configured such that a force applied in the longitudinal direction causes the lower portion to automatically move away from the upper portion whenever the force exceeds a predetermined threshold, so that the length of the elongate component is increased; and the foot prop is configured such that the lower and the upper portion are releasably blocked against relative movement towards one another. The invention further relates to a seat base and a child safety seat comprising a foot prop.

  • Patent number: 10592509
    Abstract: The present disclosure involves systems, software, and computer implemented methods for using declarative rules for optimized access to data. One example method includes receiving a structured query language (SQL) query, the SQL query associated with at least one database table and at least one predicate. A determination is made as to whether the SQL query is associated with at least one declarative rule based on the at least one database table and the at least one predicate. In response to determining that the SQL query is associated with at least one declarative rule, the at least one associated declarative rule is applied, during optimization of the SQL query. The at least one declarative rule defines a transformation to the SQL query to be performed during query optimization. An updated SQL query is generated based on the applied at least one associated declarative rule and the updated SQL query is provided.

  • Patent number: 10535028
    Abstract: Method, system, and computer program product for simulating the layout and flow of a manufacturing facility. An initial facility layout concept and a baseline input data set are received which define placement and movement of virtual objects within a virtual facility model. At least one of several analyses is performed based on the initial facility layout concept and the baseline input data set. An event flow analysis that outputs timing for movement of the objects from the initial positions may be performed. A geometric flow analysis that outputs interactions between the objects resulting from the movements from the initial positions may be performed. An ergonomic analysis that outputs human postures and motions resulting from interactions with objects may be performed. A simulated flow model for the manufacturing facility is generated. A three-dimensional virtual environment of the simulated flow model is generated and output for display.

  • Publication number: 20190340282
    Abstract: Techniques and solutions are described for facilitating the distribution of tables and table data between a shared container and one or more tenant containers. The tables can include a sharing indicator that can designate a table (or a view on a table) as having a materializable type. Materializable types can initially be deployed in the shared container, and a tenant container can have read access to the table via a view. If the tenant attempts to modify the materializable table, the table can be materialized in the tenant container. Metadata for a materializable table can include materialization instructions. Techniques and solutions are also provided for converting between sharing types, and for updating shared containers or table schemas.

  • Patent number: 10214192
    Abstract: In one embodiment, a solenoid valve for a vehicle braking system includes a magnet assembly having a winding support, a coil winding, a housing, and a cover disc. The solenoid value further includes a valve cartridge having a capsule, a valve insert, a valve seat, and an armature. The valve insert can be connected to the capsule, the armature can be guided within the capsule in an axially movable manner and has a closing element. The closing element and the valve seat can form a valve that can control a fluid flow through the valve cartridge. The coil winding can be wound on the winding support to form an electrical coil, which can be controlled using control signals applied to electrical connectors. The electric coil generates a magnetic force that can move the armature against a force of a return spring.
