  • Patent number: 7857121
    Abstract: A system and method for conveying and for accurately handling a generally flat object employing a plurality of support elements. The system comprises: a plurality of vacuum preload drive wheels arranged in one or more drive units, each drive unit comprising at least one vacuum preload drive wheel; one or more vacuum ports located on one or more counter plates adjacent each of the vacuum preload drive wheels, for applying induced holding down forces on the object. The vacuum ports of each drive unit are fluidically connected to a main vacuum pipe with controllable valve to a vacuum source. When the main vacuum pipe is connected to a vacuum source the normal force between the object and the vacuum preload drive wheels is increased and accordingly the lateral drive force is increased.

  • Publication number: 20080135211
    Abstract: A heat-exchanging device comprising a heat exchanging layer, having a heat transfer contact surface designed to be subjected to a heat flux of a heat dissipating element and flow passages whose inlets and outlets are located on at least a first active surface that is substantially opposite the heat transfer contact surface; a manifold comprising a housing with a top cover, and alternating supply and evacuation substantially parallel channels, the channels having openings on a second active surface for fluidically communicating with the first active surface of the hear exchanging layer, each channel having at least another opening for coolant supply or for evacuating the coolant from the device. When the manifold and the heat exchanging layer are coupled and coolant fluid is supplied through the manifold, local U-shaped flow patterns are established in the heat exchanging layer, towards and away from the heat transfer contact surface in a local manner.
