  • Publication number: 20200180017
    Abstract: A coolant nozzle (1) for cooling a metal strand in a continuous casting installation has a mouthpiece (5), which is arranged at a nozzle outlet end (4) and through which liquid coolant (6) can emerge from the coolant nozzle (1). To allow a rapid buildup of pressure at the coolant nozzle (1), it provides a feed (8), which is formed as a tube-in-tube system (9) arranged upstream of the mouthpiece (5) in the direction of through-flow (7) and has a feed outlet end (10), through the first tube (11) in which control air (13) can be brought up to the feed outlet end (10) and through the second tube (12) of which the liquid coolant (6) can be fed to the mouthpiece (5) by way of the feed outlet end (10), and also provides a control valve (14), which is integrated in the feed (8), is arranged at the feed outlet end (10), can be actuated pneumatically by using the control air (13) and is intended for controlling the feed of the liquid coolant (6) into the mouthpiece (5).

  • Publication number: 20200143963
    Abstract: A manufacturing method of a sintered magnet is described. The method includes forming a pre-sintering body from a first magnetic powder and a second magnetic powder (containing a heavy rare earth element, HRE) so that at least part of the second magnetic powder is provided at at least one inner portion of the pre-sintering body and surrounded format least two opposite sides by the first magnetic powder; sintering the pre-sintering body; and annealing the sintered pre-sintering body at an annealing temperature lower than the sintering temperature, thereby causing inter-grain diffusion of HRE from the HRE reservoir zone to the grain boundary phase. After the annealing, the grain boundary phase contains the HRE in a higher concentration than the main phase.

  • Publication number: 20190377332
    Abstract: Relative movement between a tool and a workpiece for machining the workpiece with a machine tool is controlled by defining a machine coordinate system (MKS) relative to a machine base of the machine tool and a rotation coordinate system (RKS) relative to the MKS by defining the origin of the RKS in the MKS, defining the orientation of a selected coordinate axis of the RKS in the MKS, defining an axis of rotation around which the RKS rotates in the MKS, defining an angular velocity with which the RKS rotates around the axis of rotation, defining a tool path in the RKS, and controlling the relative movement according to the defined tool path. With this procedure, complex movements of a machine tool, in particular in connection with so-called interpolation turning, can be described or programmed in a relatively simple manner.

  • Patent number: 10269479
    Abstract: This application concerns a magnet having a magnet body as well as a method for manufacturing such a magnet. The magnet body has a first region with first magnetic properties and a second region with second magnetic properties that are different to the first properties. Owing to the manufacturing process of the magnet body, the relative location of the first region and the second region within the magnet body is freely predeterminable.

  • Patent number: 10269508
    Abstract: Electrical contact system with a first and a second contact (1, 5), each having a contact surface (4, 8). The first electric contact (1) has a mesostructured electric contact portion (14) with a plurality of slots (15) and ridges (16) formed between neighboring slots (16) of the plurality of slots (16). These slots (15) and ridges (16) extend in a direction running transversely to said switching plane (X-Z) form a plurality of current paths (16). The current paths (16) are inclined to the first contact surface (4) at a first angle (17) measuring less than 60 degrees such that an interruption current (12) flowing through the mesostructured electric contact portion (14) and through an electric arc (11) extending in between the first contact surface (4) after lifting the first contact surface (4) off the second contact surface (8) pushes said electric arc (11) in the direction of the apex of said first angle (17) from a first position (18) to a second position (19).

  • Publication number: 20090325442
    Abstract: The invention relates to a method for producing an in particular porous molded ceramic article, which molded ceramic article is optionally reinforced with fibers and/or a semi-finished textile product such as woven fabric, wherein a powder A and at least one further powder B are suspended in a liquid, after which a molded article is formed from the suspension produced in this manner optionally in combination with fibers and/or a semi-finished textile product and the molded article is optionally sintered. It is provided according to the invention that the powders A and B are suspended approximately at a pH value of the liquid at which a viscosity minimum of the suspension is given, whereby high solids contents in the suspension can be adjusted with low viscosities. This makes possible a rapid production of largely crack-free molded articles with advantageously low-defect structures.

  • Patent number: 7118802
    Abstract: A two-layer ceramic composite material, wherein the first predominantly load-bearing layer is an oxidic, carbon-free fiber-reinforced ceramic layer which is made by a colloidal process. The second predominantly thermally insulating layer is an oxide-ceramic foam. The colloidal process produces carbon-free oxide ceramics which, because of their high purity, have low dielectric losses in the entire usage temperature range. In addition, the colloidal process provides a simple and cost-effective production method.

  • Patent number: 4327438
    Abstract: A receiving circuit for an interference-suppressing communications system having a narrow-band conventional message modulation and additional pseudo-noise phase shift keying (PN-PSK), has a pseudo-random generator whose pseudo-random sequence is identical to the pseudo-random sequence provided by the system transmitter. The pseudo-random generator actuates a phase-shift keying element to cancel the phase shift modulation produced at the transmitter. A matched filter or correlation network for correlation of the pseudo-random sequence at the receiver with the pseudo-random sequence contained in the received signal is provided. The message modulation impairs the function of the matched filter or the correlation network. The degrading influence of message modulation is to be eliminated, at least, reduced.
