  • Publication number: 20190085832
    Abstract: A wind turbine, including a support structure and a thrust bearing having a bearing pad which includes a piston and which is movably connected to the support structure, a spring element which is configured to resiliently support the bearing pad relative to the support structure, wherein a pad portion of the bearing pad and/or the bearing pad itself is configured to tilt and to move translationally relative to the support structure, and wherein a gap is provided between the piston and the support structure. The piston limits the movement of the bearing pad. Thus, reliable and well defined movement limits are provided. Furthermore, a broad spectrum of spring parameters is available since the movement may be restricted by the piston and not necessarily be the spring element.

  • Patent number: 9046084
    Abstract: A swashplate-type pivot bearing, or an axial piston machine that has the swashplate-type pivot bearing, which ensure reliable operation. The swashplate-type pivot bearing for a hydraulic axial piston machine has a housing section, a swashplate section and a multiplicity of rolling bodies. The swashplate section is pivotably mounted in the housing section by the rolling bodies and the rolling bodies are arranged in a full-roller configuration and/or without a cage in at least one rolling body row. The swashplate-type pivot bearing also has at least one follow-up device for follow-up adjustment and/or synchronization of the rolling bodies, which is arranged and/or formed at an end of the rolling body row. The follow-up device is controlled by a slotted guide.

  • Patent number: 8998489
    Abstract: A segment rolling bearing for an axial hydraulic pump, which can be integrated in a simple way. The segment rolling bearing has an outer raceway carrier, an inner raceway carrier, a plurality of rolling bodies, and a cage. The rolling bodies are arranged in the cage such that they roll between the outer raceway carrier and the inner raceway carrier in such a way that the outer raceway carrier can be pivoted about a common pivot axis with respect to the inner raceway carrier. The cage is connected to the inner and/or to the outer raceway carrier directly and captively in at least one connecting region, at least in the radial direction with respect to the common pivot axis.

  • Patent number: 8083586
    Abstract: A system for providing interoperability of electronic games independently-operable from one another includes a network entity and a client. The client can interact with the network entity to play a master electronic game using shared attributes otherwise configured for use in a subordinate electronic game, where the client can interpret the respective shared attributes for use during play of the master electronic game. During play of the master electronic game, the client can receive a selection of at least one subordinate game from within the master electronic game. In response, the client can initiate the selected subordinate game for play using shared attributes otherwise configured for use in the master electronic game and/or another subordinate electronic game. Similarly, the client can interpret the respective shared attributes for use during play of the selected subordinate game.

  • Publication number: 20110230269
    Abstract: The invention relates to wireless multi-player gaming with mobile game devices. It also relates to a method and a device capable of reducing the communication load of mobile game devices in wireless multi-player gaming. Methods are provided to support wireless multi-player gaming with a multi-player game hub, wherein the hub is setting up wireless connections to at least two mobile game devices by performing an initialization procedure according to an initialization protocol. These connections form a hub-to all wireless network, wherein each connected game device is wirelessly connected as a slave device in the wireless network. The hub may further control the transfer of game execution data between the game devices. Thereby a method and a game system is provided to separate the communication load from the game execution load keeping the processing resources of the gaming devices clear for executing the game software in wireless multi-player gaming.
