  • Patent number: 11628634
    Abstract: A method for producing a hollow composite structure, such as a spar beam for a wind turbine blade, includes placing a membrane within a mold tool, the membrane being permeable to air and impermeable to resin. A mandrel is placed within the mold tool, the mandrel enclosed in an air tight layer that includes a vent. Fiber reinforcement material is placed around the mandrel within the mold tool and the membrane is sealed at least partly around the fiber reinforcement material and mandrel. The mold tool is closed with the vent line from the mandrel extending through the sealed membrane to outside of the mold tool. A vacuum is drawn in the mold tool while the mandrel is vented to outside of the mold tool, and while the vacuum is being drawn, resin is infused into the mold tool around the mandrel such that the resin is drawn towards the membrane.

  • Publication number: 20220362517
    Abstract: An introducer hub assembly, such as an introducer hub assembly of a leadless cardiac pacemaker, including a hemostatic seal having a cross-slit configuration, is described. The hemostatic seal can be retained between a hub cap and an introducer hub. The hemostatic seal includes a first section having first slits intersecting along a longitudinal axis of the introducer hub, and a second section having second slits intersecting along the longitudinal axis. The first slits are angularly offset relative to the second slits to reduce a likelihood that fluid will leak directly through the seal. Other embodiments are also described and claimed.

  • Publication number: 20220178346
    Abstract: A rotor blade includes first and second blade segments extending in opposite directions from a chord-wise joint. The first blade segment includes a beam structure that connects with the second blade segment via a receiving section. A chord-wise gap exists between an edge of the beam structure and an edge of the receiving section. The beam structure defines a first pin joint slot, whereas the receiving section defines a second pin joint slot that aligns with the first pin joint slot. First and second bushings are arranged in first ends of the first and second pin joint slots, each having a flange extending within the chord-wise gap. As such, the flanges abut against each other within the chord-wise gap so as to fill the chord-wise gap with a predetermined defined gap or interference. Further, a chord-wise extending pin is positioned through the bushings so as to secure the first and second blade segments together.

  • Publication number: 20220072812
    Abstract: A method for manufacturing a structural component of a blade segment for a segmented rotor blade of a wind turbine includes forming first and second portions of the structural component. The first and second portions include respective holes that align in a chord-wise direction. The method also includes placing the first and second portions of the structural component into a mold such that their respective holes align in the chord-wise direction. Further, the method includes placing a tooling pin through the aligned holes. In addition, the method includes infusing the first and second sides together in the second mold via a resin material so as to form the structural component. Moreover, the method includes removing the tooling pin after the structural component has cured.

  • Publication number: 20220063216
    Abstract: A method for manufacturing a structural component of a blade segment for a segmented rotor blade of a wind turbine includes providing a mold of the structural component. The mold has an outer wall that defines an outer surface of the structural component. The method also includes securing at least one tooling pin to the outer wall for defining a pin joint slot in the structural component. Further, the method includes laying up one or more outer fiber layers in the mold so as to at least partially cover the outer wall. The outer fiber layer(s) has at least one hole that receives the tooling pin(s). As such, the outer fiber layer(s) form the outer surface of the structural component. Moreover, the method includes placing one or more structural features atop the outer fiber layer(s) in the mold. In addition, the method includes infusing the outer fiber layer(s) and the structural feature(s) together via a resin material so as to form the structural component.

  • Publication number: 20220016808
    Abstract: A method for producing a hollow composite structure, such as a spar beam for use in a wind turbine blade, includes placing fiber reinforcement material around a mandrel within a mold, and curing the fiber reinforcement material. The mandrel is formed from a compressible material having a rigid neutral state with a rigidity to maintain a defined shape of the mandrel during lay up and curing of the fiber reinforcement material. Subsequent to curing, a vacuum is drawn on the mandrel to compress the compressible material so that the compressed mandrel can be drawn out through an opening in the composite structure, the opening having a size such that the mandrel could not be withdrawn through the opening in the rigid neutral state of the mandrel.

  • Patent number: 10852814
    Abstract: A head-mounted display system is provided, including a head-mounted display, an imaging sensor, and a processor. The processor may convey instructions to the head-mounted display to display a virtual object at a world-locked location in a physical environment. The processor may receive imaging data of the physical environment from the imaging sensor. The processor may determine, based on the imaging data, that a world-space distance between a hand of a user and the world-locked location is below a predetermined distance threshold. The processor may convey instructions to the head-mounted display to display a bounding virtual object that covers at least a portion of the virtual object. The processor may detect, based on the imaging data, a change in the world-space distance. The processor may convey instructions to the head-mounted display to modify a visual appearance of the bounding virtual object based on the change in the world-space distance.
