  • Publication number: 20190064819
    Abstract: An autonomous industrial truck, in particular an order-picking industrial truck, including an undercarriage to support the industrial truck on a roadway. The undercarriage is located on an undercarriage chassis and the industrial truck has a supporting chassis that is provided with supporting means.

  • Patent number: 8557511
    Abstract: A method and an apparatus are described for infiltrating tissue samples with carrier material, preferably paraffin. A supply of carrier material is kept ready for use in a supply station. From there, the carrier material can be delivered into at least a first and a second container. In these first and second containers carrier materials of differing degrees of purity are kept ready for use, respectively, for performing various infiltration steps on tissue samples. By means of the described method and apparatus the tissue processor can be operated with as little interruptions as possible and an ease in operation is achieved.

  • Patent number: 8383418
    Abstract: A method for operating a tissue processor is described. During the operation of a tissue processor a reagent is fed from a container into a retort of the tissue processor, which retort does not contain any tissue samples. Thereafter, the reagent is returned into the container. During feeding, returning and/or in between feeding and returning a measured value is detected by a sensor of the tissue processor. This value is representative of a concentration of the reagent. During this feeding, this returning and/or in between no tissue sample is placed in the retort.

  • Patent number: 7617905
    Abstract: A hydraulic steering device (1) of a mobile machine, in particular of an industrial truck, includes a steering angle transmitter (2) in mechanically functional communication with a steering valve (4). As a function of the actuation of the steering angle transmitter (2), the steering valve (4) controls the connection of a steering drive (13) with a pressure fluid source (6) and a reservoir (11). To vary the translation ratio of the steering device in a simple manner, a bypass device (20) is operationally associated with the steering drive (13). By activation of the bypass device, the quantity of pressure fluid delivered from the pressure fluid source (6) to the steering drive (13) can be diverted to a reservoir (11).
