  • Patent number: 8720369
    Abstract: The present invention relates to the application of surface coatings to treated aluminum articles utilized on aircraft, and more particularly to a system for masking portions of aluminum aircraft wheel and brake components for application of surface coatings to reduce or prevent wear and/or corrosion to the aluminum article. The system may be utilized for new aluminum aircraft components as well as aircraft components that have been subjected to non-destructive testing. The masking components are constructed and arranged to cooperate with portions of the aluminum component in a sequential manner to allow for application of multiple layers of primer and/or topcoat without removal of prior masking components so that a coated component complies with the manufacturer's written requirements for that component.

  • Patent number: 7933673
    Abstract: A system for demand breakout for a supply chain includes a memory operable to store a plurality of orders for at least one product. Each product may be produced using at least one precursor. The memory is also operable to store a production schedule identifying one or more resources in the supply chain, a quantity of each product and precursor scheduled to be produced by the resources, and a time period associated with production of each product and precursor. The system also includes one or more processors collectively operable to identify one or more particular units of the product that correspond to each product order. The one or more processors are also collectively operable to identify one or more particular units of one or more precursors that correspond to each product order.

  • Patent number: 6006465
    Abstract: A soft-bodied crank-bait lure comprising a rigid interior skeleton and a rubbery body molded or formed thereover, where the skeleton includes: a first channel extending downward and rearward from the anterior end of the lure; and a second channel extending downward and forward from the posterior end of the lure. The rearward opening of the first channel is spaced from and substantially faces the forward opening of the second channel, and the first channel and the second channel are angled with respect to each other. Fishing line or leader line is threaded through the first channel and then through second channel, and the hooks are coupled to the line rather than to the skeleton or to the rubbery body. Therefore, the lure will "free-flow" on the line, so that when a fish strikes the lure and becomes hooked, the lure will slide away from the fish.

  • Patent number: 5039278
    Abstract: Air control mechanism within a power turbine section of a gas turbine engine. The power turbine section includes a rotor and at least one variable pitch propulsor blade. The propulsor blade is coupled to and extends radially outwardly of the rotor. A first annular fairing is rotatable with the propulsor blade and interposed between the propulsor blade and the rotor. A second fairing is located longitudinally adjacent to the first fairing. The first fairing and the second fairing are differentially rotatable. The air control mechanism includes a platform fixedly coupled to a radially inner end of the propulsor blade. The platform is generally positioned in a first opening and a first fairing. The platform and the first fairing define an outer space. In a first position corresponding with a first propulsor blade pitch, the platform is substantially conformal with the first fairing.
