  • Patent number: 10487376
    Abstract: The invention relates to a nickel-based alloy having a microstructure with a matrix of ?-phase and precipitates of ??-phase. The ??-phase comprises a percentage by volume of from 50 vol % to 80 vol % in the temperature range of from 1000° C. to 1100° C. The nickel-based alloy comprises 8 to 13 at % aluminum, 3 to 14 at % cobalt, 4 to 12 at % chromium, 0.6 to 8 at % molybdenum, 0 to 6 at % rhenium, 0.5 to 4 at % tantalum, 0.5 to 4 at % titanium, 0.3 to 3.5 at % tungsten, 0 to 4 at % germanium, 0 to 0.6 at % hafnium, 0 to 4 at % ruthenium, balance nickel and unavoidable impurities. The concentrations of molybdenum and tungsten are selected such that the percentage X of molybdenum and tungsten in the ?-phase, X=0.84 CMo+CW, is greater than 5.5 at % at a temperature of from 1000° C. to 1100° C., CMo and CW being the concentrations of molybdenum and tungsten in at %.

  • Patent number: 10118589
    Abstract: The invention relates to a belt retractor for a safety belt, having: a belt reel (100, 200, 300, 400, 500, 600) for winding up the safety belt; a locking base (120, 220, 320, 420, 520, 620) which during normal operation is conjointly rotated with the belt reel and the rotary motion of which upon abrupt belt extraction is locked by means of a locking mechanism; and a belt force limiting installation which upon locking of the locking base permits relative rotation between the belt reel and the locking base. It is provided according to the invention that the belt retractor has a deactivation installation which after a predefined maximum relative rotary angle between the locking base and the belt reel blocks the relative rotation which is permitted between the belt reel and the locking base by the belt force limiting installation and, on account thereof, deactivates the belt force limiting installation.

  • Patent number: 10046733
    Abstract: A belt retractor for a safety belt, having a belt reel for winding or unwinding the safety belt, and a belt force limiting installation which comprises a first and second torsion bar for limiting belt force. The belt retractor has a free-wheeling transmission which operates depending on the rotation angle and which after activation of the belt force limiting installation initially leaves the second torsion bar so as to be inactive, while the first torsion bar for limiting belt force is already being twisted, and the free-wheeling transmission activates the second torsion bar as soon as the free-wheeling transmission has been rotated about a predefined maximum free-wheeling rotation angle.

  • Patent number: 9463772
    Abstract: A tensioning drive for a safely belt device. The tensioning drive includes a gas generator, a drive wheel and a supply pipe which connects the gas generator and the drive wheel. A plurality of pushing members is included in the supply pipe. The pushing members are accelerated after the gas generator has been activated. The pushing members drive the drive wheel, and at least one of the pushing members completely or at least partially seals the supply pipe. The sealing action of the at least one sealing pushing member is ended or reduced after a predetermined distance has been travelled.

  • Patent number: 8585091
    Abstract: An occupant protection device including a pyrotechnical gas generator and a safety valve operating in a temperature-dependent manner and leading to the outside is connected to the gas generator. A sealing element of the safety valve is formed by a pin that includes a pin head, which is inserted from inside into a hole in a wall of a supply element such that the pin head bears against the inner face of the wall. A pin end, which is located on the outer face of the wall and protrudes outwardly through the hole, is plastically reshaped, so that the cross section of the pin end is larger than the cross section of the hole thereby forming a sealing portion which is larger in cross section than the cross section of the hole.
