  • Publication number: 20210187666
    Abstract: A method for producing an implant, such as a stent, includes providing an implant blank, such as a stent preform, formed from a degradable material, preferably a magnesium alloy. Recess are introduced into the implant blank through laser beam ablation using laser radiation in the form of pulse bundles, each pulse bundle having at least two pulses.

  • Patent number: 9436162
    Abstract: A method for adjusting an oscillation frequency of a sprung balance assembly, in which a removal or a displacement of material is conducted on a component of this sprung balance assembly under an effect of a pulse of a laser source to conduct a micromachining or microfusion operation on the material of this component to vaporize or displace this material. This pulse is controlled by a controller configured to generate, sequence, interrupt any pulse and to control movements of a beam of this laser source, and the controller is automatically controlled by a measuring or comparing mechanism.

  • Publication number: 20130272100
    Abstract: A method for adjusting oscillation frequency of a spring balance assembly. A removal and/or an addition and/or a displacement of material is/are conducted on a component of the assembly under effect of a pulse of a transformation mechanism to conduct a micromachining and/or microfusion operation on the material of the component or of an addition material to vaporize and/or displace and/or weld the material. The pulse is controlled by a controller configured to generate, sequence, interrupt any pulse and to control movements of a beam of the transformation mechanism, wherein the controller is connected to or automatically controlled by a measuring or comparing mechanism.

  • Publication number: 20130131206
    Abstract: The invention relates to a method for producing flat, hydrophilic, aliphatic polyurethane foams. The invention also relates to a flat, hydrophilic, aliphatic polyurethane foam obtained according to said method and to the use thereof as a wound dressing, incontinence product or cosmetic article. According to the invention, a prepolymer-component and a carbonic acid or carboxylate component containing water is produced, said components are combined and mixed, and the obtained mixture is applied to a flat substrate as a layer which has an even thickness. Directly after application, a perforated separation element is applied in a flat manner to the layer. Said applied layer then expands with the applied perforated separation element to form the flat polyurethane foam.

  • Patent number: 8377343
    Abstract: The invention relates to a novel optical function layer and its production, the function layer imparting to materials coated with it protection against uv radiation while transmitting electromagnetic radiation of larger wavelengths. The function layer of the invention and the manufacturing method of the invention offer advantages over the state of the art by allowing very accurate and precise adjustability in the uv range of the relatively sharp absorption constant.

  • Patent number: 7790999
    Abstract: A method of producing a welding seam with a single laser pulse, the laser pulse and the work piece being moved relative to each other at a high velocity. This results in the length of the welding seam formed being primarily the product of pulse duration of the laser pulse and the relative velocity of work piece and laser pulse. The invention also relates to a method in which the work piece moved at high velocity relative to the laser beam is subjected along the welding seam to be formed to repeated applications of a single laser pulse. In that case the length of the welding seam is defined principally of the product of pulse duration of the laser pulse and the relative velocity of the work piece and laser pulse divided by the number of applications.
