  • Patent number: 10658204
    Abstract: A substrate processing system to treat a substrate includes a spin chuck configured to hold and rotate a substrate. A heating assembly is configured to heat an opposite surface of the substrate and includes a main heater assembly and a nozzle stack cap. The main heater assembly includes a first plurality of light emitting diodes (LEDs) arranged on a first printed circuit board (PCB) in a first plane that is spaced from and parallel to a second plane including the substrate. The nozzle stack cap assembly includes at least one nozzle to dispense liquid onto a center of a first surface of the substrate. A radiant heat source is arranged closer to the substrate than the first plane and is configured to heat the center of the first surface of the substrate.

  • Publication number: 20200138714
    Abstract: The invention relates to flat dosage forms that disintegrate or dissolve in an aqueous environment and release at least one active ingredient in a body orifice or body cavity. The inventive dosages are formed from a polymer matrix in the form of a solidified foam having cavities and contain at least one pharmaceutical active ingredient. The inventive dosage forms further have a high mass per unit area in the region of 50 to 350 g/m2. Despite their high mass per unit area and the resulting high active ingredient loading during administration, these dosage forms exhibit a substantially improved mouthfeel in comparison to conventional film dosage forms. The invention also relates to methods for producing a dosage form of this type.

  • Publication number: 20200131975
    Abstract: A process manufactures an exhaust gas treatment device including a tubular circumferential wall (14) elongated along a longitudinal axis (L) with two axial end areas, an exhaust gas treatment unit (52) arranged in the circumferential wall and a closing element (20, 38) connected to the circumferential wall at the two axial end areas. The exhaust gas treatment unit is held at the circumferential wall by a supporting material layer (54) enclosing the exhaust gas treatment unit and supporting same in relation to the circumferential wall. The process includes arranging a first of the two closing elements at one of the axial end areas of the circumferential wall, pushing the exhaust gas treatment unit enclosed by the supporting material layer into the circumferential wall from the other axial end area (18), and arranging a second of the closing elements at the other axial end area of the circumferential wall.

  • Patent number: 10632539
    Abstract: A device for the fine machining of a circumferential workpiece surface arranged eccentrically relative to an axis of a workpiece. The device comprises a pressure mechanism configured to press a fine-machining tool against the circumferential workpiece surface. The device also includes a drive unit configured to drive an active section of the pressure mechanism via a first drive and a second drive. The first drive drives the active section in a movement plane that runs crosswise to the workpiece axis along a first movement trajectory. The second drive drives the active section along a second movement trajectory that is at an angle to the first movement trajectory.

  • Publication number: 20200102530
    Abstract: The invention describes a methodology for production of a secondary extra-particle fungal matrix for application as a mycological material, manufactured via a Type II actively aerated static packed-bed bioreactor. A pre-conditioned air stream is passed through a substrate of discrete elements inoculated with a filamentous fungus to form an isotropic inter-particle hyphal matrix between the discrete elements. Continued feeding of the air through the substrate of discrete elements and isotropic inter-particle hyphal matrixes develops an extra-particle hyphal matrix that extends from an isotropic inter-particle hyphal matrix in the direction of airflow into a void space within the vessel.

  • Patent number: 10593458
    Abstract: A method for actuating an electromagnetic valve in a fluid system includes, for a specified first time period, a switching current with a specified first amplitude is applied, the switching current switching the electromagnetic valve from a rest state into a switching state. After the specified first time period expires, a holding current with a specified second amplitude is applied, the holding current holding the electromagnetic valve in the switching state. The first amplitude of the first switching current is greater than the second amplitude of the holding current.

  • Publication number: 20200081601
    Abstract: A touch-sensitive control device for a motor vehicle, with a control surface; a detection unit which is configured to detect a space-resolved deflection of the control surface; a control unit which is configured to distinguish a characteristic of a deflection of the control surface due to a force exerted on the control surface purely with at least one finger from a characteristic of a deflection of the control surface due to an acceleration acting on the entire control surface. On the basis of this, the force exerted on the control surface purely with the finger, as well as to trigger a function as a function of the determined force exerted purely with the finger is determined.
