  • Patent number: 9950475
    Abstract: A device for generative manufacturing of a component, in particular for layered generative manufacturing of a component which is printed on a base plate. The base plate forms a connecting surface for applying and compacting powder in order to manufacture the component, and includes a plurality of sheets, the sheets being formed and arranged next to one other such that the connecting surface of the base plate is formed by lateral surfaces of the sheets.

  • Patent number: 9555900
    Abstract: A method for positioning an access or loading assembly against the fuselage of an aircraft during the loading or unloading process, in which at least two multichannel scanners are oriented toward the aircraft fuselage and disposed above one another at a distance from each other, each with several light emitting units and at least one detector. First, a reference position is determined by using the scanners, then a current position of the aircraft fuselage relative to the access or loading assembly is determined at determined time intervals by the multichannel scanners. The current position is compared with the reference position to determine a deviation. In case of a deviation between the two positions, a signal is transmitted to the control system of the positioning drive for realigning the access or loading assembly and reducing the deviation.

  • Patent number: 9055035
    Abstract: Secure transmission of electronic data via a data communication link is provided between a device and an additional device with independent transmission channels, wherein at least one of the devices is a medical device. Secure transmission comprises the following steps or means: providing a password in the device, receiving the password in the a additional device separate from the data communication link, selecting one of the independent transmission channels, encrypting the channel identification of the selected independent transmission channel using the received password in the additional device, transmitting the encrypted channel identification from the additional device to the device via the data communication link and decrypting the encrypted channel identification in the device, providing a session key in the device and the additional device and transmitting encrypted electronic data between the device and the additional device via the independent transmission channel.

  • Publication number: 20130344447
    Abstract: An oil premix burner comprising: a combustion element; a burner surface on the outer lateral surface; a distribution chamber below the burner surface; a central oil injection device; a combustion air channel connected to a blower situated upstream as well as an air heat exchanger for the preheating of the combustion air in the area of the burner surface. In each case, the annular space formed between the inner tube and the outer tube of all the double tube elements opens out into an annular-shaped collecting chamber, and the preheated combustion air, starting from the collecting chamber, flows inwards via a swirl-generating device into the area around the oil injection device into the distribution chamber.

  • Patent number: 7343822
    Abstract: A method for operating a mass flowmeter that employs the Coriolis principle and through which flows a medium, wherein the mass flowmeter incorporates a measuring tube that can be stimulated to oscillate, the measuring tube is stimulated to oscillate at a minimum of two mutually different frequencies and/or in at least two mutually different natural oscillating modes, and the resulting oscillations of the measuring tube are recorded. The density of the medium flowing through the measuring tube is determined by evaluating the acquired oscillations of the measuring tube on the basis of a physical-mathematical model for the dynamics of the mass flowmeter. In this fashion, highly accurate measurements are obtained for determining the density of the medium flowing through the measuring tube.
