  • Publication number: 20180194058
    Abstract: A system for molding an object includes an articulated mold having an axis and a plurality of mold portions configured to collectively define a molding cavity for shaping the object when arranged in respective molding positions. The system includes a plurality of actuators, each operatively coupled to a respective mold portion and configured to move the respective mold portion along the axis from the respective molding position toward a respective ejecting position for releasing the object. The system includes a controller in communication with each of the plurality of actuators and configured to independently activate each of the plurality of actuators such that one of the plurality of mold portions moves along the axis from the respective molding position toward the respective ejecting position while at least one other of the plurality of mold portions remains stationary relative to the object in order to at least partially support the object.

  • Publication number: 20180066901
    Abstract: A header for a heat exchanger includes a first and a second cylindrical portion. The first cylindrical portion has a first diameter, and extends over a first length portion of the header. The second cylindrical portion has a second diameter that is smaller than the first diameter, and extends over a second length portion of the header. Tube receiving slots are arranged along the first length portion. An end cap is received into an open end of the first cylindrical portion, and is joined thereto to seal a first end of the header. An open end of the second cylindrical portion is arranged at a second end of the header opposite the first end to allow for fluid flow into or out of the header. A circumferential bead is located between the first and second cylindrical portions, and extends radially outward of the first cylindrical portion.

  • Patent number: 9892615
    Abstract: Aspects of the present disclosure involve an apparatus, systems, and methods for soiled garment detection and notification. The method may include receiving a measure of odor being released from a garment from a soiled garment detection apparatus. The method may further include determining that the measure of odor exceeds an acceptable odor threshold. A message may then be sent to a user device associated with the garment (e.g. a device of the owner of the garment) in response to determining that the measure of odor exceeds the threshold. The message may include a notification that the garment is soiled, and a suggested course of action to improve the measure of odor released by the garment.

  • Publication number: 20170217634
    Abstract: The invention includes a scalable, modular interlocking container with a multi-purpose use. Vertical and horizontal interconnectivity are achieved through interlocking mechanisms. An exemplary first use is for transporting and/or storing liquids or solids that can be poured. An exemplary second use is for a sturdy, low cost, easily assembled building block material of a standardized nature. Each modular unit slide-locks with other units to form strong wall and building structures that can be filled with natural earth, sand or other such materials, thereby forming a sturdy structure without the use of mortar, and can adapt to uneven base surfaces typically found in natural terrain.
