  • Publication number: 20190263065
    Abstract: The disclosure provides methods of additive manufacture of components in layers in a powder bed by at least two laser beams that can be deflected two-dimensionally over the same powder bed region. Each laser focal spot is projected onto the power bed and is or is set to a diameter of less than or equal to 300 ?m. Components to be produced in the powder bed region are manufactured by each of the laser beams, and each individual surface contour of the component is manufactured solely by one of the laser beams.

  • Patent number: 10390412
    Abstract: In order to make flexible, reliable lighting possible for industrial image processing, it is provided that a lighting unit (2), having a lighting device (5) comprising a number of light sources (6), receives a set value of the lighting via a data bus from a lighting control unit (10), that the lighting unit (2) captures a state variable (Z) of the lighting unit (2) and/or the surroundings of the lighting unit (2), and that the lighting unit (2) adjusts the set value in a closed control loop separately and independently from the lighting control unit (10) in that a control variable for at least one light source (6) is calculated in the lighting unit (2) and adjusted at the at least one light source (6).

  • Publication number: 20190200425
    Abstract: To provide an illumination means, which offers reliable protection against undesirably high levels of emitted light intensity, there is provided on the illumination means according to the invention, in addition to a light source and a control unit, which supplies the light source with an electric current (i) or an electric voltage and is equipped to regulate the intensity of an emitted light via the electric current or the electric voltage, a detection unit, which captures at least a performance variable of the light source. In addition, a diagnostic unit is provided, which compares the at least one performance variable (G_ist) against at least one specified limit value and triggers an action, which reduces the intensity independently of the control unit, as soon as the at least one performance variable reaches or exceeds the at least one limit value.

  • Patent number: 10136491
    Abstract: To indicate a lighting means for a machine vision application where the resulting irradiance (P?) in an illuminated area (5) at a working distance (d) can be precisely adjusted, an optical covering (2) of the lighting means (1) is provided, which is configured such that a transmitted part (t2) of the incident light (L) passes through (1) the optical covering (2), and a reflected component (r2) of the incident light (L) is reflected in the optical covering (2), wherein a light sensor (3) is provided that detects the intensity (Ir2) of the reflected component (r2) in the optical covering (2). Furthermore, a method is indicated, according to which the intensity (Ir2) of the reflected component (r2) is detected and the radiant power (P) of the light source (1) is regulated on the basis of the intensity (Ir2) in order to adjust the irradiance (P?) of the transmitted component (t2).

  • Patent number: 9215963
    Abstract: A method for filling a hollow space in an autoclavable medical instrument with an adhesive containing a filler has the steps of providing an adhesive with a low viscosity allowing the adhesive to enter into a hollow space in a medical instrument, providing a filler of solid particles within said low viscosity adhesive, density of said solid particles differ from a density of said low viscosity adhesive, filling that hollow space in said medical instrument with that low viscosity adhesive containing said solid particles, allowing said particles a period of time for crowding together into a minimum of space, and curing said adhesive after said period of time.
