  • Publication number: 20220288710
    Abstract: A machine tool is designed for the machining of rotary parts with groove-shaped profiles, in particular gears, by a generating method. On the one hand, a Y slide (200) is arranged on a machine bed (100), the Y slide being displaceable along a Y direction and carrying a workpiece spindle (210). The workpiece spindle drives a workpiece (220) to rotate about a workpiece axis (C). On the other hand, a Z slide (300) is arranged on the machine bed. The Z slide is arranged along a Z direction running parallel to a center plane (E1) spanned by the Y direction and the workpiece axis. An X slide (310) is arranged on the Z slide and can be displaced along an X direction relative to the Z slide (300). The X direction is perpendicular to the center plane. A tool spindle (320) is arranged on the X slide, which drives a tool to rotate about a tool axis. The tool spindle can be swiveled relative to the X slide in a swivel plane (E2), which runs parallel to the center plane, about a swivel axis (A).

  • Patent number: 11396231
    Abstract: Overload protection systems and methods are provided for controlling the amount of energy delivered to the drivetrain of work vehicles including axles, transmission, and other components thereof including for vehicles using power boost. A sensor in operative communication with a primary power equipment unit driving a transmission of a work vehicle generates a torque signal representative of torque delivered to the transmission by the primary power equipment unit. The overload protection method and system uses the torque signal to control the torque delivered to the transmission of a work vehicle by the primary power equipment unit.

  • Publication number: 20220183444
    Abstract: A device for applying a removable substance in the form of a baton, has a substance carrier and a protective sleeve so that the substance carrier can be made to move relative to the protective sleeve. A movement part has a longitudinal slot in which the substance carrier is guided by a peg, and the substance carrier can be moved between a retracted position and an extended position. The longitudinal slot has a retaining portion assigned to the extended position, the central longitudinal axis of which runs at an angle to a central longitudinal axis of a movement portion of the longitudinal slot. The central longitudinal axis of the retaining portion and the central longitudinal axis of the movement portion enclose an obtuse angle.

  • Patent number: 11085038
    Abstract: The invention relates to novel polypeptide libraries that are conformationally constrained in an anti-parallel, helix-turn-helix arrangement. The invention further relates to methods of generating and screening such libraries for biological, pharmaceutical and other uses.

  • Patent number: 11016447
    Abstract: A detector includes an elastic conductive blade having first and second ends and a central portion therebetween, with the blade being designed to be driven axially by a control rod to occupy three distinct positions between the pulled position and the end position of the rod: a pulled position, an end position, and an intermediate position. Two electrical contacts are designed to detect the end position and the pulled position of the rod, respectively. The blade is designed to pivot at its first end when the rod passes from the intermediate position to the pulled position, or vice versa. The blade is designed to undergo elastic deformation when the rod passes between the intermediate position and the end position so as to participate substantially in a restoring force of the rod toward the intermediate position when the axial activating force applied to the rod by a user is released.

  • Publication number: 20100012069
    Abstract: A sealing system is provided for connecting tubular motor vehicle components that includes, but is not limited to a connecting piece and a substantially tubular connecting attachment disposed radially outside the connecting piece. Disposed peripherally on an outer side of the connecting piece is a sealing element for sealing the connecting piece with respect to the connecting attachment. The sealing element has a receiving pocket for receiving the connecting attachment. Furthermore, a clamping element exerts a retaining force radially inwardly onto the connecting attachment by means of the sealing element. As a result, the connecting attachment can be connected to the connecting piece without an interposed hose so that the sealing system is space-saving and makes easier assembly possible.
