  • Patent number: 10954667
    Abstract: An anchor for use in joining inner and outer wythes of the wall. The outer wythe is formed from successive courses of masonry units with a mortar-filled bed joint between each two adjacent courses. The anchor comprises an engagement portion configured for disposition in the bed joint and an attachment portion coupled to the engagement portion. The attachment portion is configured to be secured to the inner wythe. The attachment portion defines an elongate slot. A bushing defines an opening sized and shaped to receive a fastener to attach the attachment portion to the inner wythe. The bushing is movably attached to the attachment portion to permit movement of the bushing and attachment portion relative to one another. This permits the engagement portion to move relative to the outer wythe to position the engagement portion in the bed joint when the fastener secures the attachment portion to the inner wythe.

  • Patent number: 9759261
    Abstract: High temperature rolling element bearings and methods for manufacturing high temperature bearing components, such as bearing races or rings, are provided. In one embodiment, the method includes obtaining a powder mixture containing a superalloy powder admixed with hard wear particles, such as carbide particles. The powder mixture is consolidated utilizing a spark plasma sintering process during which the powder mixture is compressed into a sintered blank, while an electrical current is conducted through the powder mixture to heat the powder mixture to a sintering temperature. The sintered blank is then machined to impart the bearing component with its final shape. Precipitate hardening may also be performed, if desired. The spark plasma sintering process is controlled to limit the temperature and duration of the powder consolidation process thereby imparting the resulting bearing component with an enhanced hot hardness and other desirable properties at highly elevated operating temperatures.

  • Publication number: 20090074334
    Abstract: A concealed slide assembly capable of lowering its manufacturing cost and providing an easier assembling includes a same shaped guiding element and a guide rail element and a first sliding element, and both are installed symmetrically into a substantially S-shaped first bearing bushing. A first bearing bushing made of plastic includes a middle portion accommodated by a space formed by the guide rail element and the first sliding element, a plurality of horizontal and vertical cylindrical roller bearings. The guide rail element and the first sliding element are bent to form corresponding arc guiding grooves for installing a plurality of ball bearings. With the installation of each bearing, the first sliding element can slide with respect to the guide rail element. The first sliding element can use a second bearing bushing installed in the cylindrical roller bearing to slidably install a second sliding element.

  • Patent number: 7309115
    Abstract: A pull-out guide assembly for drawers, having on both sides of the drawer a support rail on the carcass and a pull-out rail on the drawer. The load of the drawer is transmitted between the rails by rollers that are borne in running carriages. The running carriages may be moved between a front end position and a rear end position in a differential manner. Locking means are provided for the running carriages and, in the event of a deviation from the differential running between the rails, they lock the running carriage on one of the rails at predetermined points between the two end positions. This locking is releasable by the movement of the rails with respect to one another.

  • Patent number: 7308184
    Abstract: A drawer slide having first and second rails interconnected by a center rail. The center rail includes a spool configured to provide half-speed travel of the center rail relative to the travel of the first rail. The drawer slide is configured for use with a drawer assembly having a drawer and a chassis. The drawer assembly further includes a radius limiter secured to the center rail. The radius limiter travels at half-speed relative to the drawer. The radius limiter also automatically rotates relative to the travel of the drawer. The chassis includes sides including threaded backing plates, and mounting brackets. The mounting brackets include tri-lobed holes for receipt of a reciprocally shaped washer and a fastener for mounting the brackets to the chassis sides.
