  • Patent number: 10293525
    Abstract: The invention relates to a method for producing a threaded bolt. A blank is introduced into a threaded-bolt negative mold. The blank has a bolt-shaped portion. Fibers which are aligned in the longitudinal direction of the bolt-shaped portion are embedded in a plastics material in the blank. Pressure is exerted on the blank in order to deform the blank in the negative mold such that a threaded structure is formed on a circumferential face of the bolt-shaped portion. The invention moreover relates to a threaded bolt which is manufacturable by this method, and to a system which is conceived for carrying out the method. Lightweight and hard-wearing threaded bolts may be manufactured by the method according to the invention.

  • Patent number: 10259585
    Abstract: A seat fitting connects an aircraft seat to a floor rail of an aircraft. The seat fitting comprises a vertically oriented pin, a web connected to the pin and a first holding body which projects in the lateral direction with respect to the web. The holding body is configured in order to engage behind a lip of the floor rail. The seat fitting further comprises a tensioning element in order to tension the holding body in the vertical direction against the lip of the floor rail. The seat fitting comprises a second holding body projecting in the lateral direction and having a spacing of an inch from the first holding body in the longitudinal direction, and that the pin is arranged with an offset in the longitudinal direction relative to the first holding body and the second holding body.

  • Publication number: 20170218992
    Abstract: The invention relates to a fastening system comprising a first component and a second component. The first component comprises a plurality of fastening projections so that in each case two fastening projections enclose a fastening receiver therebetween. The second component comprises a plurality of fastening projections so that in each case two fastening projections enclose a fastening receiver therebetween. In the connected state of the components the fastening projections of the first component are in engagement with the fastening receivers of the second component and the fastening projections of the second component are in engagement with the fastening receivers of the first component. According to the invention, the fastening projections of the first component are provided with compression slots. The fastening system according to the invention has a high degree of ease of operation and permits stable connections.

  • Patent number: 8944378
    Abstract: The invention provides a method for adapting a seat row arrangement in an airplane in order to set seat row distances, wherein the currently desired pattern of seat row positions is stored in a control device and wherein the seat rows are mounted on seat tracks (4) extending in the longitudinal direction and can be locked therein against longitudinal movements by a locking mechanism (12, 13) associated with each seat row, wherein each seat row whose position is to be changed is, under control of the control device, unlocked by releasing the locking mechanism for the seat row, is moved automatically on its seat tracks to the predetermined position by operating drive means under the control of the control device, and is locked there on the seat tracks by the control device by actuating the locking mechanism, characterized in that at least one cable (6) which is extending in the longitudinal direction along the cabin is driven by a motor to move back and forth in a manner controlled by the control device, each s
