  • Patent number: 9091300
    Abstract: A rolling-element bearing includes inner and outer rings, a cage with pockets disposed therebetween, and rolling elements respectively retained in the pockets. The cage has a guiding section extending along the axial length of the rolling elements. The distance between a radially-inner surface of the guiding section and the rotational axis of the bearing progressively decreases at least in sections along the axial direction of the rolling-element bearing from a point of the guiding section that is most distant from the rotational axis. A conveying section of the cage connects to that most-distant point and extends outside or away from the axial length of the rolling elements. The distance between a radially-inner surface of the conveying section and the rotational axis progressively decreases at least in sections in the axial direction away from the rolling elements. A lubricant collection channel is defined between the guiding section and the conveying section.

  • Publication number: 20050055348
    Abstract: “XSteps” are modular data objects that model performance of various operations in a manufacturing process. Designers of manufacturing processes can build complex manufacturing systems from the modular XSteps and may enter parameter information that defines inputs to the corresponding XSteps. An XStep may include a parameter array defining different variables that determine behavior of the manufacturing operation represented by the XStep, a process instruction attribute that includes instructions to be delivered to automatic- or manually-driven manufacturing processes when the manufacturing operations are performed and an actuals attribute to capture manufacturing data as the manufacturing operations are performed. Thus, the present invention provides an integrated view into automatic, semi-automatic and manually-driven manufacturing processes.

  • Patent number: 6384323
    Abstract: The invention is an improvement to a high-frequency-shielded switchgear cabinet having a cabinet body which can be or is composed of wall elements and has at least one opening which can be closed by a cabinet door. Gaps formed in the cabinet body and between the cabinet body and door can be closed or sealed so as to be high-frequency-shielded by means of electrically and magnetically conductive sealing strips. In order to attain a corrosion-free switchgear cabinet which has a long service life and can be easily produced, the wall elements and cabinet door are made of aluminum-zinc-coated sheet metal and are provided at least in regions facing the gaps to be sealed without additional surface-protecting coverings. The sealing strips are directly connected to the untreated surface of the wall elements and/or cabinet door.
