  • Patent number: 11116611
    Abstract: Process and systems for molding or forming products from thermosetting plastics. The system utilizes a deformable container that is placed within the cavity of the housing of the mold with the resins and initiator mixed therein. As a piston slides into the cavity, the upper edges of the container engage between the housing and the piston to seal the housing form leakage. The pressure of the piston along with heat on the housing enable the curing process to be controlled to minimize shrinkage and porosity.

  • Patent number: 10379982
    Abstract: Computing systems, devices, and methods for performing a virtual load test are disclosed herein. In accordance with the present disclosure, an asset data platform may define a respective range of acceptable values for each load-test variable in a set of load-test variables. The asset data platform may then receive one or more under-load reports from a given asset, and carry out a virtual load test for the given asset by, performing a comparison between the respective observation value for the load-test variable included in the most recent under-load report and the respective range of acceptable values for the load-test variable. In turn, the asset data platform may identify load-test variables for which the respective observation value falls outside of the respective range of acceptable values, and may then cause a client station to present results of the virtual load test for the given asset.

  • Patent number: 9387411
    Abstract: The educational toy car includes a framework having a pair of rear wheels and a pair of front wheels. The front wheels are pivotably connected as well as rotatably connected with the framework, and rotate in concert with one another via a steering tie rod. The framework includes an engine block with a plurality of piston members that work in concert to visibly rotate a transmission member located elsewhere in the framework. The transmission member connects to a drive gear that includes a drive shaft extending rearwardly within the framework, and to in mechanical connection with a rear differential. The rear differential is in mechanical connection with the pair of rear wheels. The pair of rear wheels are rotatably connected with the framework, and are rotated upon movement of the piston members or the transmission member or the drive shaft or the rear differential.

  • Patent number: 9280206
    Abstract: A method, system and computer-readable medium for providing feedback effects for an image. The method includes identifying one or more features in an area of the image. The method also includes mapping the one or more identified features to at least one of multiple modalities of feedback effects. Additionally, the method includes generating parameters for feedback effect output and storing the generated parameters in association with the image such that, in response to coordinates of an input of a user corresponding to the area of the image, a user interface associated with the image is configured to provide at least one of the multiple modalities of feedback effects to the user. The multiple modalities of feedback effects include one or more visual feedback effects, one or more haptic feedback effects and one or more audio feedback effects.

  • Patent number: 8791349
    Abstract: A flash-memory based stored-sample electronic music synthesizer enables the electronic reproduction of a large number of independent voices while accommodating the exacting demands of voice continuity, minimal note-start latency, and voice synchronicity. Error correction code associated with each page of a sound sample is stored with the sound sample and is retrieved with the sound sample during playback to thereby increase the overall sample retrieval rate.

  • Publication number: 20130166619
    Abstract: A request to access an action of a workflow from a number of business intelligence (BI) workflows in a computer system is received, where the action of the workflow is encoded. A generator encodes the action in generic syntax to identify and locate the action. The generator encodes the action of the workflow based on context parameters associated with the action. An interpreter interprets the encoded action of the workflow and processes the context parameters associated with the action. In response to the access request, the action of the workflow is launched.

  • Patent number: 8271819
    Abstract: An information handling system (IHS) is disclosed providing a power supply operable to provide an output current to the IHS during power initiation. The IHS may also include a first power component associated with a first power stage wherein the first power stage may have a first current threshold. Furthermore, the IHS may include a power control logic coupled to the power supply and the first power component. As such, the power control logic may be operable to communicate the first power stage to the power supply, and if the output current does not exceed the first current threshold during the first power stage, the power control logic may be operable to communicate a second power stage having a second current threshold to the power supply.
