  • Patent number: 10266355
    Abstract: An apparatus for singling sheet goods which comprises a suction device with a stator and a rotor movable relative to the stator. The stator has at least one first opening and the rotor at least one second opening which overlap upon a rotation of the rotor and thereby define an opening area with a first end and a second end. The opening area extends starting from the first end up to the second end, wherein a section of the opening area between the first end and the second end forms a suction area in which sheet goods to be singled can be sucked by the suction device. The first end of the opening area is arranged spaced from the suction area so that arising noise can be dampened.

  • Patent number: 10231685
    Abstract: A method operates an x-ray system for examining an object. In order to optimize the operation of an x-ray system, in particular the dose regulation and/or the image processing, the following method steps are performed. Radiation is passed through the object to be examined and a number of fluoroscopic images of the object are generated. A relevant image region of a fluoroscopic image is selected by a user of the x-ray system. An image-based dose regulation of the radiation dose used for passing radiation through the object is carried out using the selected image region and/or image processing is carried out using the selected image region.
