  • Patent number: 10661774
    Abstract: A method is provided for increasing the operational safety of at least one thermally stressed functional part of at least one vehicle brake, in particular of a commercial vehicle and/or a trailer, and/or for reducing brake wear and/or drive power, wherein the method has the following steps: inputting a temperature signal of the at least one brake, which temperature signal represents at least one temperature of the brake and/or of a functional part of the brake detected by at least one sensor, and inputting a brake request signal and/or brake pressure signal for the at least one brake; determining a thermal error condition by using the temperature signal and the brake requirement signal and/or brake pressure signal; and providing an adapted brake requirement signal and/or adapted brake pressure signal using the determined thermal error condition in order to increase the operational safety of the at least one functional part of the at least one vehicle brake exposed to thermal stress, and/or to reduce the brake

  • Patent number: 10654462
    Abstract: In a method for avoiding an overheating of a brake of a vehicle, in particular of a commercial vehicle and/or a trailer, a first temperature signal and at least a second temperature signal are read in, with the first temperature signal representing a temperature of the brake and/or of a functional part of the brake, and the at least second temperature signal representing at least one additional temperature of at least one additional brake of the vehicle. An error state of the brake is detected using the first temperature signal and the second temperature signal in order to avoid an overheating of the brake. A control device for carrying out the method is also disclosed.

  • Publication number: 20150110580
    Abstract: A device for forming book blocks is disclosed. The device includes a first conveying device which accepts signatures printed in a printing press located upstream. The device further includes at least one signature switch assigned to the first conveying device, multiple second conveying devices, and multiple book block formers, where each second conveying device is assigned a book block former and where each book block former can be supplied with signatures belonging to the same book block dependent on a position of the or each signature switch. The device further includes multiple placers, where each book block former is assigned a placer which accepts the book blocks formed in the respective book block former, and a third conveying device, onto which the book blocks can be placed with the help of the placers and which feeds the book blocks to a delivery device.

  • Patent number: 6105496
    Abstract: The invention provides an aid for threading a printing-material web or part printing-material webs which are produced from the printing-material web by a longitudinal cutting device. The aid enables threading by a threading apparatus even in the region of offset bars. For this purpose, guide bars are introduced into the web course during the threading operation. The printing-material web is threaded through the offset bars but wraps around these guide bars instead of the offset bars. The guide bars are then either withdrawn from or pivoted out of the web course so that the printing-material web can be pulled taut on the guide bars. Likewise, it is also possible for offset bars mounted on one side to undertake the function of the guide bars during the insertion operation.

  • Patent number: 6058842
    Abstract: A bearing assembly for an inking or wetting device of a printing press which quickly adjusts and readjusts a position of a first roller against a second and third roller includes a movable carrier plate on which a bearing assembly holding the first roller is mounted. The carrier plate rests against couplings of quadrilateral mechanisms which are positioned in relation to stops on bearings of the second and third rollers. As the position of the second and third rollers is adjusted for wear, the carrier plate follows the stops via the couplings so that the first roller automatically follows the second and third rollers during operation.

  • Patent number: 5967043
    Abstract: A bearing assembly for a roller of an inking or wetting device includes a drive device that moves in a first direction to move a roller holder holding a roller from a print ready to an away position. The drive device also moves in a second direction to lock the roller holder onto a base of the bearing assembly at the print ready position. A spring urges the roller holder toward the print ready position when the drive device is inactive.

  • Patent number: 5676630
    Abstract: A folder device that can be converted from parallel fold to delta fold, and the pre-fold of which is also convertible. The device includes cylindrical segments respectively, that are turned relative to one another by two planetary gear trains, which are adjustable relative to one another, so that the respective transmissions of the planetary gear trains balance one another. The adjustment of the cylindrical segments is carried out in dependence on the adjustment of the planetary gear trains.

  • Patent number: 5097475
    Abstract: A high electrical power is input in a gas-swept electrical discharge for gas laser by controlling with a high electrical efficiency and without dissipative resistance. A discharge chamber is swept through with a gas at a high velocity wherein transverse to the flow direction, the gas discharge burns as a steady-field discharge between an anode and several cathodes opposite the anode. These are disposed in tandem in the flow direction. Power is supplied to each individual cathode by means of a fast, independently controlled switched-mode power supply unit constant current characteristics wherein the current is supplied to the switched-mode power supply unit by series-connected partial voltage sources of the cathodes. A pre-ionization device is provided on the flow bounding surface of the discharge chamber.
