  • Patent number: 11075751
    Abstract: A modular valuable media recycling device is presented. The valuable media recycling device includes a media infeed module, a validator module, an escrow module, a plurality of media feeder/stacking modules, and a plurality of cassette modules. When a module handles a valuable media item along a media transport path, the module's identifier and security information are passed as a message to a next module that is to handle the media item in a processing path for the media item. Each module independently validates the authenticity of the message received from a previous module. The number of media feeder/stacking modules and cassette modules are scalable based on the transaction terminal that the modular valuable media recycling device is integrated into.

  • Patent number: 10366454
    Abstract: Systems and methods are provided for processing derivative product orders at an exchange. Traders provide derivative product order risk data to the exchange. The order risk data may include maximum delta, gamma and/or vega utilization values for derivative product contracts based on the same underlying product. Before executing a trade, a match system analyzes the trader's current utilization state and the utilization that would result after the trade. The match system may then execute all or a portion of the trade.

  • Patent number: 10217165
    Abstract: Methods and systems for an exchange to handle variable derivative product order prices are disclosed. The price of a derivative product order (bid or offer) is updated based on changes in the price of a related underlying product. Price determination variable(s), such as delta and gamma, are used to determine the price of the order. The exchange may periodically recalculate the price without requiring the trader to transmit additional information to the exchange.

  • Publication number: 20170100772
    Abstract: A method for manufacturing an article from a metal alloy is described. The method includes supplying the metal alloy into a nozzle of a printing chamber, where temperature of the metal alloy is between a solidus and a liquidus temperature. Further, the method includes depositing the metal alloy in successive layers on a substrate plate, inside the printing machine, using the nozzle. The method also includes controlling movement of at least one of the nozzle and the substrate plate within the printing chamber based on an electronic data source of the article, where the electronic data source includes geometry of the article.

  • Patent number: 9537680
    Abstract: Methods and systems are provided in which a network induces different distortions in signals traversing different segments of the network. The distortions may be used to identify locations on the network of devices that transmit and receive the signals. The distortions may be reflected in equalization coefficients programmed into transmitting or receiving devices, which may be used to pre or post filter the signals to compensate for the distortions.

  • Publication number: 20160354850
    Abstract: A method of manufacturing a gear-cutting tool is disclosed. The gear-cutting tool includes a base portion and cutter teeth extended from the base portion. Each cutter tooth includes a cutting tip portion. The method initiates with hardening the gear-cutting tool with a first hardening process. Thereafter, coating the cutter teeth with a wear resistant material and then hardening the cutting tip portion of each of the cutter teeth with a second hardening process. In the second hardening process, the heat treat is directed to penetrate through the wear resistant material. This process imparts the heat treatment to the wear resistant material and the cutting tip portion of the cutter teeth of the gear-cutting tool.

  • Publication number: 20160168708
    Abstract: A method of manufacturing a component includes providing a component machined or forged from an air-hardenable steel, and placing the component in a chemical vapor deposition (CVD) processing chamber. The method may include controlling the pressure within the processing chamber to a pressure that is below atmospheric pressure, inducting feedstock gases into the processing chamber, and increasing the temperature inside the processing chamber to a coating temperature at which one or more volatile precursors from the feedstock gases react on the surface of the component to produce a thin film coating. The temperature in the processing chamber may be maintained at the coating temperature for a period of time that includes at least one of a period of time before, during, and after the thin film coating is produced in order to austenitize the material of the component.
