  • Patent number: 10836092
    Abstract: A method for manufacturing a material strand assembly for a vehicle. The method includes: extruding strand material in an extruder so that an extruded material strand is produced; monitoring the quality of the extruded material strand so as to detect faults of the extruded material strand; in case of a detection of a fault, cutting out the fault from the material strand and re-joining cutting end faces, thus producing a joint, so that a faultless material strand is produced. The cutting-out step is conducted such that any two adjacent joints are at a minimum joint distance from each other. The faultless material strand is stored in a storage unit so as to produce the material strand assembly. The extruded material strand is passed through a first strand accumulator between the extruder and the cutting arrangement and through a second strand accumulator between the cutting arrangement and the storage unit.

  • Patent number: 10810412
    Abstract: A method for gesture-based configuration of a data capture device includes: storing, in a memory connected to a processor, a plurality of configuration definitions each defining (i) a gesture, and (ii) a corresponding configuration parameter; at a processor, monitoring an input device for a configuration activation input; responsive to detection of the configuration activation input, activating a configuration control mode at the processor; responsive to activation of the configuration control mode, detecting an input gesture at the processor; selecting one of the configuration definitions defining the gesture that matches the input gesture; updating a current configuration of the data capture device with the corresponding configuration parameter of the selected configuration definition.

  • Patent number: 10792723
    Abstract: A binary nozzle for atomizing a mixture of agent to be sprayed and spray air is connected to at least one supply duct via which the mixture or the agent to be sprayed can be supplied to the binary nozzle, wherein a valve is arranged between this supply duct and a nozzle outlet of the binary nozzle. A corresponding spray head and also a method for atomizing a mixture of agent to be sprayed and spray air uses a binary nozzle. The binary nozzle includes a nozzle body formed in a single piece and including the nozzle outlet, wherein a movable assembly of the valve is fastened to the nozzle body by a fastening element and/or held tight against the nozzle body by a spring device.

  • Patent number: 10615402
    Abstract: A water-refill plug for automatically filling and refilling the cells of the battery has a housing forming a valve seat, and forming an upper and lower guides above and below the valve seat. A float is movable vertically in the housing below the seat in one of the cells of the battery. A valve body vertically movable independently of the float body has upper and lower end vertically slidable in the upper and lower guides. A magnetically attractable or repellable element or permanent magnet is provided on one of the bodies. Another permanent magnetic on the other of the bodies exerts a force via the element or magnet so the valve body is moved by the float body.
