  • Patent number: 11999578
    Abstract: A palletizing apparatus and a method for stacking packages on a load carrier. The palletizing apparatus has a stacking location for palletizing the packages and at least two supply stations, which are in conveying connection with the stacking location and each have an intermediate carrier formed for receiving the packages. It is possible for the intermediate carriers to be vertically adjusted by a motor at least to some extent independently of one another between a low-level position and a high-level position. In order to make a rapid palletizing cycle possible, provision is made for the intermediate carriers to be horizontally adjustable by a motor-drive independently of one another between a starting position and an end position. The intermediate carriers are arranged at the supply stations for adjustment in a collision-free manner in opposite adjustment directions between a receiving position and a transfer position.

  • Publication number: 20240132691
    Abstract: The present invention provides methods for utilizing blended compositions of acetonitrile and toluene as organic wash solvents in the production of a synthetic oligonucleotide, the blended compositions producing higher synthetic oligonucleotide yields than a pure acetonitrile wash solvent. The method also provides a process for removing one or more impurities from the acetonitrile and toluene containing wash solvent received as a waste stream from the oligonucleotide synthesis process. The process includes adding at least one of an iodine reactive compound, a sulfur reactive compound and/or an acidic reactive compound to the waste stream, and fractionating the waste stream. The fractionation produces an overhead fraction and a bottom fraction where the overhead fraction includes the acetonitrile and the toluene, and the bottom fraction includes the one or more impurities.

  • Publication number: 20210102415
    Abstract: A printed circuit board having essentially a first region, a second region, and a third region. The first region and the third region can be used for the placement of electrical and/or electronic components. The second region located in the middle of the three regions is a bend region. A side edge of the printed circuit board is offset inward in this region in order to narrow the contour of the printed circuit board in the bend region. This region likewise has one or more through holes. Both the narrowing and the through holes facilitate a bending of the printed circuit board, namely a bending of the first region relative to the third region or vice versa.
