  • Patent number: 8730581
    Abstract: A head-up display system for a vehicle facilitating the use of night vision goggles for a person in the vehicle during night vision conditions. The system includes a light source for providing light to an image source. The image source is arranged to project an image on a semi-transparent combiner mirror. The combiner mirror is arranged to superimpose the projected image onto a view of the environment in front of the vehicle by transmitting light rays from the environment and at the same time reflecting the projected image towards the eyes of an observer. The system includes a first and a second light source for alternatively providing light to the image source. The first light source is arranged to emit light of a first color to be used during daylight conditions, and the second light source is arranged to emit light of a second color to be used during night vision conditions, wherein the second color is mainly yellow or mainly orange.

  • Patent number: 4708452
    Abstract: The decoating device 21 comprises a spraying section 22, a heating zone 9, a cleaning station 23 and a gumming station 24. Containers 5a, 5b, 5c for various developing liquids are connected via a multiway valve 5 to one or more flat-jet nozzles 6 in the spraying section 22. A first sensor 4 registers the incoming printing plate 1 and actuates the multiway valve 5 in order to admit decoating liquid from one of connected containers 5a, 5b or 5c to the flat-jet nozzle(s) 6. The decoating liquid sprayed past the printing plate 1 is conveyed via a collecting trough 7 into a collecting container 8. The thin film of decoating liquid on the printing plate 1 is heated to the preselected temperature by means of the radiator 25 in the heating zone 9. A pair of squeezing rollers 11 cleans the printing plate surface. A second sensor 14 registers the front edge of the printing plate 1 and then switches on the cleaning station 23 and gumming station 24 known per se.

  • Patent number: 4684594
    Abstract: Printing forms or metallized images can be prepared electrophotographically by a process comprising the electrostatic chargeup, imagewise exposure and tonering of a photoconductor layer applied to an electroconductive base material, followed by fixing of the tonered image areas, removal of the photoconductive layer in the non-image areas by decoating and, where appropriate, etching of the bared base material surface. A recording material is used that comprises a photoconductive layer containing at least one organic n-conducting pigment in a concentration between 10 and 50 percent by weight and an organic p-conducting photoconductor in a concentration of 0 to 20 percent by weight, based on the layer weight, together with a binder which is soluble or dispersible in aqueous-alkaline solution. The decoating is carried out with an aqueous-alkaline decoater solution, which preferably contains alkali metal hydroxides and/or phosphates.

  • Patent number: 4660959
    Abstract: Disclosed is a device for the electrophotographic manufacture of printing forms, comprising a loading table, an exposure table and a developing table arranged in the device one after the other in the transport direction A of printing plates. The loading table is pivotable and is equipped with spring suction devices, by means of which the uppermost printing plate can be removed from a plate magazine. After the printing plate has been removed, the loading table is swung into its horizontal position, a corona is moved over the loading table and the photoconductive layer of the printing plate is loaded to the required voltage. The printing plate is transported from the loading table to the exposure table and from the latter to the developing table by means of compressed air which forms a cushion underneath the printing plate. The printing plate is guided on the cushion in suspension from processing station to procesing station.
