  • Publication number: 20200183001
    Abstract: An apparatus for producing an image of an object by electromagnetic radiation includes a transmitting device for producing the electromagnetic radiation, a plurality of transmitting antennas connected to the transmitting device for emitting the electromagnetic radiation, a plurality of receiving antennas, which receive the electromagnetic radiation emitted by the transmitting antennas, and a receiving device, connected to the plurality of receiving antennas, for receiving the electromagnetic radiation and a motor-driven rotating scanner. The transmitting antennas and the receiving antennas are arranged on the scanner. The scanner is set up in such a way that the transmitting antennas and the receiving antennas are rotatable at the same speed about an axis of rotation.

  • Patent number: 10667933
    Abstract: A delivery system is equipped with a self expanding stent for implantation into a blood vessel, in particular in the region of the aortic arch. The stent has a hollow cylindrical body which is radially compressed for implantation. A pull-back sheath which surrounds the stent and which radially compresses it is also provided for positioning and releasing the stent in the blood vessel. The pull-back sheath has a highly flexible front section which surrounds the stent and which maintains said stent in its compressed state, and has further a more rigid rear section which is connected to the front section and which is designed to transmit torsional and traction forces to the front section.

  • Patent number: 10468248
    Abstract: In various embodiments, a method is provided. The method may include forming a buried electrically charged region at a predefined position in a first layer in such a way that the buried electrically charged region generates an electric field having a lateral inhomogeneous field distribution above the first layer, and forming a second layer above the first layer using the field distribution in such a way that a structure of the second layer correlates with the position of the buried electrically charged region.

  • Publication number: 20190247951
    Abstract: A method for producing a rack for a steering gear may involve providing a toothed segment and a shaft segment aligned on a longitudinal axis and connecting the segments by axial joining faces by friction welding at a welding joint. For friction welding, the joining faces may be brought into frictional contact by an initial friction force, the segments may be rotated relative to one another, the joining faces may be mutually compressed by way of a contact pressure force until a predefined joining path has been reached by way of a welding force 10 to 20 times the initial friction force, thermal input friction may be performed by an input force 5 to 12 times the initial friction force, and the segments may be moved toward one another in an axial direction by the predefined joining path. The segments may be held in position without friction.
