  • Patent number: 4940452
    Abstract: A magnetic coupling for translatorily movable bodies that is made in one position, is arranged so that it can be broken, without external control, in another position. For this purpose the first body has a coupling element of permanently magnetic or magnetizable material, the second body has at least one complementary coupling element of permanently magnetic or magnetizable material, and a third body has a coupling element of permanently magnetic or magnetizable material cooperating with the second body. Arranged between the complementary coupling element of the second body and the coupling element of the third body that is a spacer which can be moved as desired between the working positions.

  • Patent number: 4631415
    Abstract: A radiation treatment apparatus comprising a radiation shielding container (a rest container) having a plurality of first openings. A plurality of radiator holders are connected to respective drive cables, the radiator holders being axially insertable and removable from the openings by means of the drive cables through flexible hoses connected to the container at the openings. A common single drive unit is connected to all of the drive cables for joint movement of all the drive cables and therewith for joint insertion and joint removal of the radiator holders into and from the openings via the drive cables. A second radiation shielding container (an intermediate container) has a plurality of second openings for selectively receiving respective of the radiator holders. Hose coupling elements provide detachable through-connections of the free ends of the flexible hoses selectively to a respective one of the second openings or a respective hollow probe for treatment.
