  • Publication number: 20200283935
    Abstract: Interlacing equipment may be used to form fabric and to create a gap in the fabric. The fabric may include one or more conductive strands. An insertion tool may be used to align an electrical component with the conductive strands during interlacing operations. A soldering tool may be used to remove insulation from the conductive strands to expose conductive segments on the conductive strands. The soldering tool may be used to solder the conductive segments to the electrical component. The solder connections may be located in grooves in the electrical component. An encapsulation tool may dispense encapsulation material in the grooves to encapsulate the solder connections. After the electrical component is electrically connected to the conductive strands, the insertion tool may position and release the electrical component in the gap. A component retention tool may temporarily be used to retain the electrical component in the gap as interlacing operations continue.

  • Publication number: 20200183968
    Abstract: Various embodiments of the invention disclosed herein provide techniques for automatically exposing 3D production assets to an editorial workstation in a content creation pipeline. A production asset management system transmits, to an editorial workstation, a first content library that includes first metadata associated with a 3D production asset that is included in an editorial cut. The first metadata allows a user to see what versions of the 3D production asset are available for incorporation into the editorial cut. The production asset management system retrieves second metadata associated with a second version of the 3D production asset from a production database. The production asset management system retrieves, based on the second metadata, the second version of the 3D production asset from the production database. The production asset management system transmits the second version of the 3D production asset to the editorial workstation for incorporation into the editorial cut.

  • Patent number: 10543591
    Abstract: A machine tool is disclosed. A magneto-pneumatic striking mechanism has a primary actuator arranged around an axis of movement and includes a first magnetic coil and a second magnetic coil. The striking mechanism has, on the axis of movement within the magnetic coils, a striker and a die. Furthermore, the striking mechanism has an air spring acting on the striker in a direction of impact. The air spring may be entirely or partially within the first magnetic coil. The air spring has a ventilation opening that is open to the environment if the striker is less than 10% of its stroke away from the die, and otherwise the ventilation opening is closed. An exchange of air with the environment is therefore only possible when the striker is near the die or is near the impact position.
