  • Publication number: 20190208793
    Abstract: A bun separator separates pre-sliced buns into portions. A bun feeder receives a pre-sliced bun having a plurality of portions and moves the pre-sliced bun along a first feed path. An obstruction is arranged relative to the first feed path and engages at least one portion of the plurality of portions of the pre-sliced bun. An actuator operates to selectively engage at least one portion of the plurality of portions of the pre-sliced bun against the obstruction to separate the least one portion of the pre-sliced bun and transfer the at least one portion to a second feed path.

  • Publication number: 20190192105
    Abstract: A method for calibrating a medical imaging device in terms of an image acquisition geometry, a method for performing a two-dimensional-three-dimensional registration based on corresponding calibration data, and a corresponding system are provided. Multiple images of a phantom are acquired using the imaging device in different positions of the phantom. A corresponding motion of the phantom from one position to a respective next position is tracked by a tracking device to keep continuous track of a spatial relation between the phantom and the imaging device. The medical imaging device is then calibrated based on the acquired images, corresponding recorded poses of the imaging device, and the tracked motion of the phantom.

  • Publication number: 20180127307
    Abstract: In certain example embodiments, a coated article includes a carbon-doped zirconium based layer before heat treatment (HT). The coated article is heat treated sufficiently to cause the carbon-doped zirconium oxide and/or nitride based layer to result in a carbon-doped zirconium oxide based layer that is scratch resistant and/or chemically durable. The doping of the layer with carbon (C) has been found to improve wear resistance.

  • Patent number: 9845261
    Abstract: A method of making a heat treated (HT) substantially transparent coated article to be used in shower door applications, window applications, tabletop applications, or any other suitable applications. For example, certain embodiments relate to a method of making a coated article including a step of heat treating a glass substrate coated with at least layer of or including carbon (e.g., diamond-like carbon (DLC)) and an overlying protective film thereon. The protective film may be of or include both (a) an oxygen blocking or barrier layer, and (b) a release layer, with the release layer being located between at least the carbon based layer and the oxygen blocking layer. The release layer is of or includes zinc oxynitride (e.g., ZnOxNz). Following and/or during heat treatment (e.g., thermal tempering, or the like) the protective film may be entirely or partially removed. Other embodiments of this invention relate to the pre-HT coated article, or the post-HT coated article.
