  • Publication number: 20200284033
    Abstract: A floating connection fastening system employs a semi-flexible floating bushing having a sleeve with an axial slot which captures a fastener having a head, an unthreaded shank portion, a threaded portion and an intermediate reamer. An offset cap mounts to the bushing/fastener assembly and receives a driver bit. The offset cap defines an offset clearance. The floating connection is installed by driving the fastener through a non-load bearing member so as to form a bore and threadably engage a load bearing member. The floating bushing has a flange which engages the surface of the non-load bearing member, and the sleeve is entirely received in the formed bore. The offset attachment functions to provide a clearance so that upon termination of driving the fastener, the head of the fastener sits proud relative to the non-load bearing member. The installation is accomplished in essentially a one-step procedure.

  • Publication number: 20200147765
    Abstract: An adaptor for a fastener driver assembly employs a bi-positionable angle guide assembly mounted to a head having an entry reference surface defining an opening for a fastener. The adaptor provides a proper location and entry angle for the fastener for implementing various structural connections. A pivotal angle guide has a pair of reference engagement edges functionally configured to engage either an upper horizontal member or a lower horizontal member. A locator having a location reference is mounted to the guide assembly. In one mode, the reference edges, together with the location reference, define a proper entry location and normal angle for connecting a horizontal member, which may be either an upper plate or a lower plate, to a rim board or other structural member. The selected adaptor position is achieved by securing the adaptor in one of two stable angular positions relative to the drive axis of the fastener driver assembly.

  • Publication number: 20200118071
    Abstract: Examples provide machine language (“ML”)-powered on-time delivery prediction generation for virtual orders obtained from an order management component (“OMC”). Predictions based on order factors deterministic to on-time delivery are output to the OMC. Predictions become increasingly accurate over time based on the accuracy of past delivery predictions and give the probabilistic chance of on-time delivery (the “order-score”) in real-time before an order for goods and/or services is dispatched. The OMC uses the order-score to react preemptively to mitigate delay factors on orders likely to arrive late, increasing the probability of on-time delivery. Customers are given confidence predicted arrival times are accurate enough for scheduling purposes. Providers more easily maintain and grow good reputations and revenue.

  • Publication number: 20190228376
    Abstract: Systems and methods for optimizing delivery vehicle resources (e.g. a plurality of vehicles) are described herein. Available time slots for the plurality of vehicles are determined and presented to a user. In response to receiving a delivery order indicating a selected time slot, the delivery order is assigned to a vehicle from the plurality of vehicles based on a time slot indicated in the delivery order and a set of delivery parameters. A delivery route is calculated for each vehicle having a delivery order based on the set of delivery parameters. An optimized delivery route is calculated for each vehicle having a delivery order based on the set of delivery parameters.

  • Publication number: 20190228100
    Abstract: The embodiments described herein enable the efficient storage and searching of large amounts of data to retrieve desired data with high accuracy and fast response time. The embodiments include for example parsing an input document containing input data into multiple sub-documents based on the structure of the input document and generating for each sub-document, a unique ID, pathway, and metadata. The embodiments also include storage of the ID and pathway for each sub-document in an index database and storage of the input document itself in a separate database. When a query for information from the input document is received, the ID and pathway of the sub document containing the queried information are identified and used to locate the queried information from the input document.

In various embodiments, the microcrystalline grains are not generally longitudinally oriented, are variably oriented, or are randomly oriented. In some embodiments, the microcrystalline grains lack uniform grain size or are variably sized. In some embodiments, the microcrystalline grains have an average grain size of less than or equal to 5 microns. In some embodiments, the metal alloy lacks long-range crystalline order among the microcrystalline grains. In some embodiments, the wire is used in a substrate used in the electrochemical cell. In some embodiments, the metal alloy is formed using a co-extrusion process comprising warming up the metallic alloy and applying pressure and simultaneously passing a core material through a die to obtain a composite structure.
