  • Patent number: 11104085
    Abstract: A composite laminate structure includes a cellular core and a first laminate layer coupled to the cellular core. The first laminate layer includes a first thermoplastic layer and a first fiber-reinforced polymer layer, where a first surface of the first fiber-reinforced polymer layer is thermally consolidated to a second surface of the first thermoplastic layer. A first surface of the first thermoplastic layer is directly in contact with and bound to a first surface of the cellular core by temperature reduction of the first thermoplastic layer below a glass transition temperature of the first thermoplastic layer while the cellular core is pressed against the first thermoplastic layer when the first thermoplastic layer is above the glass transition temperature of the first thermoplastic layer and the cellular core is below a temperature where materials of the cellular core flow or degrade.

  • Patent number: 9809017
    Abstract: To allow short time spreading for adhesive, verifying whether the adhesive is spread out to a member end. In obtaining a bonded member by applying the adhesive to a surface of one of two members and bonding the members with a member bonding device, a tilt adjusting device acquires with a camera an image of spreading state of the adhesive in the members' bonding surface, and adjusts the tilt of the bonded member when a non-spreading part of the adhesive between ends of the bonded member and the adhesive has a size bias so that the adhesive moves to the larger side of the part, and a spreading adjustment device controls a pushing amount and a pushing time interval of a pressing-side member to adjust spreading of the adhesive so that the part size reduces to a predetermined size depending on the part size acquired with the camera, and cures the adhesive in the bonded member edge with the non-spreading part eliminated.

  • Patent number: 9720272
    Abstract: A method for producing a display unit includes: inserting a covering glass into a first holder of a positioning device until the covering glass lies on a first contact surface parallel to the covering glass; thereafter inserting a bonding frame into a second holder of the positioning device until the bonding frame lies on a second contact surface parallel to the first contact surface. The bonding frame has a leg parallel to the covering glass, the peripheral edge of which leg directed toward the covering glass surrounds the peripheral edge of the covering glass at a distance forming a groove. Thereafter the groove between the covering glass and the leg of the bonding frame is filled with a first adhesive that connects these two parts to each other, and thereafter the surface of the covering glass facing away from an observer is covered with the layer of transparent bonding mass.
