  • Publication number: 20200316702
    Abstract: In an Injection Molded Soldering system, a single, one-layer decal has one or more through hole patterns where each through hole pattern has a plurality of through holes through the decal. A drum with a drum circumference turns while the decal is forced to be adjacent to the drum circumference. The decal passes by a tangent point on the drum circumference where one or more solder-filled through hole patterns align with recessed openings on a substrate at the tangent point of the drum circumference. Applied heat causes the solder structures to melt and flow into the recessed openings.

  • Patent number: 10658267
    Abstract: A system of producing metal cored solder structures on a substrate includes: a decal, a carrier, and receiving elements. The decal includes one or more apertures each of which is tapered from a top surface to a bottom surface thereof. The carrier is positioned beneath the bottom of the decal and includes cavities in a top surface. The cavities are located in alignment with the apertures of the decal. The decal is positioned on the carrier having the decal bottom surface in contact with the carrier top surface to form feature cavities defined by the decal apertures and the carrier cavities. The feature cavities are shaped to receive one or more metal elements and are configured for receiving molten solder cooled in the cavities. The decal is separable from the carrier to partially expose metal core solder contacts. The receiving elements receive the metal core solder contacts thereon.

  • Patent number: 10641190
    Abstract: A method for operating a spark ignited engine, including forming a combustible mixture by mixing generally homogeneously a first fuel and air and introducing this mixture into the at least one cylinder in an intake stroke, and compressing the combustible mixture with a piston in a compression stroke thereby introducing a part of the combustible mixture into a pre-chamber. During the intake and/or the compression stroke, a second fuel is introduced into the pre-chamber at an introduction-time before start of combustion, and the second fuel is of the same or different chemical composition and/or concentration with respect to the first fuel, and a spark ignites in the prechamber. An amount of second fuel and/or the chemical composition of second fuel introduced to the pre-chamber and/or spark timing of the pre-chamber and/or an in-cylinder charge temperature is chosen such that a desired duration of combustion can be achieved.

  • Publication number: 20190255773
    Abstract: In a method for lithography-based generative production of three-dimensional components, in which material that can be solidified under the effect of electromagnetic radiation is arranged in a vat, a build platform is positioned at a distance from the vat bottom, material located between the build platform and the vat bottom is irradiated at selected locations with the aid of an irradiating unit, the electromagnetic radiation is introduced into the material from below through a vat bottom that is transmissive to the radiation, at least in a certain region, and successively focused on focal points within the material, whereby a volume element of the material that is respectively located at the focal point is solidified. The solidification takes place by means of multiphoton absorption and the volume of the focal point is varied at least once during the method, and so the component is built up from solidified volume elements of different volumes.
