  • Patent number: 11148458
    Abstract: A method for changing a geometry of an edge of a portable data carrier, wherein the geometry of the edge is changed in order to work on the edge and the outer side of the data carrier proceeding from a common side, without a spatial location of the data carrier being changed.
    Type: Grant
    Filed: June 29, 2016
    Date of Patent: October 19, 2021
    Assignee: GIESECKE+DEVRIENT MOBILE SECURITY GMBH

  • Patent number: 9873189
    Abstract: The invention relates to a method for operating a hand-held working device (1), which comprises a data acquisition unit (24) in which actuations of the trigger switch and accelerations of the working device (1) are captured. In order to further simplify and/or improve the operation of the hand-held working device, it is monitored within a limited period of time after actuation of the trigger switch whether an acceleration of the working device (1) exceeds an acceleration threshold in order to detect trouble-free ignitions and/or ignition problems during the operation of the working device (1).

  • Patent number: 9676089
    Abstract: A combustion-operated setting tool (10) for driving-in fastening elements includes a setting piston (14) displaceable in a guide cylinder (13), a combustion chamber (15), a fuel inlet (23) opening into the combustion chamber (15) for feeding fuel therein and an ignition element (26) for igniting the fuel in the combustion chamber (15). Both, the fuel inlet (23) and the ignition element (26), are located at the first end (31) of the combustion chamber (15) adjacent to the guide cylinder (13), and a motor-driven ventilator (16) supported on a rear wall (30) of the combustion chamber (15) at the second end (32) of the combustion chamber (15) remote from the guide cylinder (13).

  • Patent number: 9664387
    Abstract: The invention relates to a work apparatus for setting fastening elements in a substrate, with a fuel container and with a dosing device, through which the fuel is fed from the fuel container into a combustion chamber in which a flammable mixture is ignited, for setting a fastening element, and with a temperature sensor. In order to prevent undesired malfunctioning in the operation of the work apparatus or to reduce the incidence of such malfunctioning, the work apparatus comprises a container temperature sensor and a dosing temperature sensor.

  • Publication number: 20150283690
    Abstract: The invention relates to a handheld or semi-stationary tool appliance (1), having a device for detecting and/or storing appliance-related operating data and/or load states. In order to further simplify operation of handheld or semi-stationary tool appliances and/or to extend service intervals or service life of said tool appliances, the tool appliance (1) comprises at least one sensor device (10) for detecting appliance-related forces, accelerations, movements, oscillation frequencies and/or oscillation amplitudes.

  • Publication number: 20130284788
    Abstract: The invention relates to a hand-held work apparatus for driving fastening elements into a substrate, wherein driving energy is released in the form of an impact to the fastening elements. In order to further simplify and/or improve the operation of the hand-held work apparatus, the work apparatus comprises a driving energy data device, by means of which data on the driving energy released in a previous driving process or in several previous driving processes can be communicated.
