  • Publication number: 20190223618
    Abstract: It is a feature of a porous body (10, 20) comprising a three-dimensional network of node points (200) joined to one another by struts (100), and a void volume (300) present between the struts (100), that the struts (100) have an average length of ?200 to ?50 mm, the struts (100) have an average thickness of ?100 ?m to ?5 mm, and that the porous body has a compression hardness (40% compression, DIN EN ISO 3386-1: 2010-09) in at least one spatial direction of ?10 to ?100 kPa. The porous body according to the invention combines the advantages of a conventional mattress or cushion with ventilatability which results from its porous structure and is not achievable in conventional foams. The invention further relates to a method of producing such a porous body (10, 20) and to an apparatus comprising said body (10, 20) for supporting and/or bearing a person.

  • Publication number: 20190210813
    Abstract: An apparatus for transporting containers or packs of containers includes an endlessly circulating belt driven by a drive. A mark marks a position on the belt and a sensor detects the mark. A controller receives data from the drive's rotation-angle detector and from the sensor. It then uses this data to either determine an extent to which the belt has elongated or to control the drive.

  • Patent number: 10343475
    Abstract: A bearing mechanism for a transverse leaf spring can be fitted in the area of a vehicle axle and has a holding device for holding the transverse leaf spring and a connecting device via for connecting the holding device to the vehicle. The holding and connecting devices and the transverse spring are designed such that when the transverse spring is in its installed position a cross-sectional plane of the transverse spring, that extends in the vertical and longitudinal directions of the vehicle, can pivot in the area of the mounting fixture during jouncing and rebound of the transverse spring, about a rotational axis that extends in the longitudinal direction. The holding and connecting devices, in the area of the mounting fixture, are designed such that the rotational axis of the cross-sectional plane of the transverse spring is vertically spaced from the neutral fiber of the transverse spring.
