  • Patent number: 9415434
    Abstract: The invention concerns an arrangement (20) and a method for the manufacture of can bodies from pot-shaped blanks (37). To this end, the blank (37) is inserted into a bottom tool part (45). The blank (37) is clamped between a downholder (23) and a counter support surface (47) of the lower tool part (45). For controlling a position value ? determining the position and/or position change of the downholder (23), a drive arrangement (22) is provided. The drive arrangement controls the position value in accordance with a predetermined course, so as to move the downholder (23) into the clamping position or out of the clamping position EP. As soon as the downholder (23) reaches its clamping position EP, the drive unit (22) controls a force value in accordance with a predetermined course which determines the clamping force F(t) which is applied by the downholder (23) to the blank (37). This occurs preferably by an adjustment of the motor current I to a predetermined course of the desired value IE(t).

  • Publication number: 20140090800
    Abstract: A cooling system for a motor vehicle or for an internal combustion engine includes: at least one heat exchanger, having an inlet and an outlet for a medium to be cooled and an inlet and an outlet for coolant air; at least one fan connected upstream of the heat exchanger; and a connection channel, which is arranged between the fan and heat exchanger, for conveying coolant air to the heat exchanger. A branch line is connected to the connection line or between the individual heat exchangers and removes a partial flow of the coolant air therefrom. The combustion air supplied to the engine is filtered. A Venturi nozzle is connected in the branch line and a suction line is connected to a constriction of the Venturi nozzle and suctions out the filtered particles of the air filter.

  • Publication number: 20120026318
    Abstract: A camera system for detecting a state of a vehicle window pane is described, having at least the following: a camera having an image sensor for detecting a first radiation emitted by the vehicle surroundings and for outputting image signals; and a radiation source for emitting a second optical radiation. At least a portion of the emitted second optical radiation is detectable by the image sensor as a function of a state of the window pane. The camera system is set up in such a way that a state of the vehicle window pane is determinable on the basis of the image signals output by the image sensor during measurements in which the vehicle window pane is illuminated differently by the second optical radiation. For this purpose, an evaluation unit which determines a state of the vehicle window pane on the basis of the image signals output by the image sensor during the measurements may be provided to record the image signals and to ascertain a state of the window pane.
