  • Patent number: 11390064
    Abstract: A printing press and a method for producing security products or security intermediate products comprises a feed device for feeding unprinted printing substrate into the printing press. Multiple printing couples print the unprinted printing substrate in an indirect planographic or in a letterpress printing method in one or more printing nips. In a conveyor line, between the feed device and the first printing nip located in the printing substrate path, at least one inspection device, which is embodied as a transmissive inspection device, is provided for inspecting the as yet unprinted printing substrate.

  • Patent number: 10353886
    Abstract: Raw data is received that characterizes each of a plurality of transactions. The data can be received, for example, via an adapter coupled to at least one data source. At least one first table is populated using the raw data according to a normalized data model. At least one second table is then populated, by applying a key figure data model to transform and enrich the at least one first table, such that it is optimized for data analysis operations. The at least one second table can include a subset of data stored in the at least one first table and additional enrichment data. At least one data analysis operation can later be initiated on the data populated in at least one second table to characterize one or more aspects of the transactions. Data can be provided that characterizes the initiated at least one data operation.

  • Patent number: 10294182
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a method for separating off a substance from a solution, in which electromagnetic radiation is radiated into the solution, an intensity of the electromagnetic radiation which has been scattered by crystals located in the solution is detected, the detected intensity is compared with a desired intensity (IS) and the temperature of the solution is regulated depending on the difference between the detected intensity and the desired intensity (IS) in such a way that the amount of this difference is reduced. If the amount of the difference between the detected intensity and the desired intensity (IS) is less than a limiting value, a crystallization method is started in which crystals of the substance are obtained which are then separated off.
