  • Patent number: 9974209
    Abstract: A heat sink is disclosed comprising a metallic pin extending between a proximal end and a distal end. A lower pin stud is positioned adjacent to the proximal end. An upper pin stud is positioned adjacent to the distal end. A base flange is interposed between the lower pin stud and the upper pin stud and defines a lower base surface and an upper base surface. The lower pin stud engages a source aperture and the lower base surface engages a source surface. A composite pitch fiber encapsulates the upper pin stud and the upper base surface. The metallic pin and the composite pitch fiber transfer the thermal energy from the lower pin stud and the lower base surface, through the upper pin stud and through the composite pitch fiber for dissipating the thermal energy from the source.

    Abstract: A method for forming a pressed, baked food product including providing a dough intermediate puck. The dough intermediate puck is processed through a first, compression station that applies a compression force and heat to the dough intermediate puck, resulting in a pressed puck. The pressed puck is processed through a second, dwell and heating station that contacts opposing major surfaces of the pressed puck in a manner allowing the pressed puck to naturally rise and applies heat to the puck, resulting in a pressed, at least partially-baked, food product. The above steps are characterized by continuous movement of the puck from an upstream end of the first station to a downstream end of the second station. In one embodiment, residual heat from the first station is applied in the second station.

This deposit is dropped accurately onto a conveyor belt for transport to a press wheel the height of which, from the conveyor, can be adjusted to provide a finished product of correct thickness. The press wheel has a system of vacuum ducts around the circumference in four chambers that pull paper from a de-nesting tray situated at the top of the press wheel, at the correct interval as to meet up with the deposit at the base of the wheel. This results in the deposit being pressed to the required thickness onto the conveyor, with the interleave paper attached to the top of the now formed patty.

  • Patent number: 8556611
    Abstract: A method and structure for forming an ink jet print head having a dielectric interstitial layer. A flexible top plate attached to a press can be used to apply pressure to an uncured dielectric interstitial layer. The uncured dielectric interstitial layer is cured while contacting the uncured dielectric interstitial layer with the flexible top plate and applying pressure using the press. Using a flexible top plate rather than a rigid top plate has been found to form a cured interstitial layer over an array of piezoelectric elements which has a more uniform or planar upper surface. An interstitial layer so formed can result in decreased processing time, reduced problems with ink communication in the ink jet print head during use, and decreased manufacturing costs.

    Abstract: A three-dimensional stereolithography apparatus includes a stage, a support mechanism to support a film so that the film is opposed to the stage, a pressing mechanism, a supply mechanism, an irradiation unit, a movement mechanism, and a control mechanism. The pressing mechanism presses at least a linear area of the film so that the linear area closest to the stage is formed in the film. The supply mechanism supplies a light-curing material into a slit area formed between the stage and the linear area. The irradiation unit irradiates the light-curing material supplied into the slit area with laser light through the pressing mechanism and the film. The movement mechanism moves the stage and the pressing mechanism relatively to the film, to form one cured layer of the light-curing material. The control mechanism controls a distance between the stage and the linear area of the film, to stack the cured layer.

  • Publication number: 20110193261
    Abstract: The present invention aims at effectively decreasing the installation space of an entire semiconductor chip compression molding apparatus and effectively decreasing the clamping force in dies which are provided in the apparatus. It further aims at performing a clamping, in the case where substrates having a different thickness are used, with an efficient adjustment in accordance with the thicknesses of the substrates. To this end, the semiconductor chip compression molding includes two semiconductor chip compression molding dies (top and bottom dies), and a die opening/closing means for closing the die surfaces of top dies and those of bottom dies in each of the upper and lower dies. The die opening/closing means includes a die opening/closing mechanism having two racks and one pinion, and a thickness adjustment mechanism for adjusting the gaps in accordance with the thicknesses of the substrates supplied to each of the upper and lower dies.

  • Publication number: 20110089610
    Abstract: A solidification substrate assembly for making a three-dimensional object from a solidifiable material includes a solidification substrate assembly. In certain examples, the solidifiable material solidifies in contact with the solidification substrate, and the tilting of the substrate and/or or the use of a peeling member facilitates separation of the substrate from the solidified material. In other examples, the solidification substrate assembly includes a film that is adjacent to a rigid or semi-rigid layer. The solidifiable material solidifies in contact with the film, and a peeling member peels the film away from the solidified material. Intelligent solidification substrate assemblies are also described in which a force sensor determines when to expose the solidifiable material to solidification energy and/or whether to use a peeling member to separate the solidification substrate from a solidified objection section.

  • Patent number: 7854872
    Abstract: A suction roller (65) is used as a drive roller for feeding a film in a solution casting method. The suction roller (65) has a surface (65a) on which a plurality of circular suction holes (91) is formed. The suction hole (91) has a diameter of 4 mm and a chamfered edge. The width of chamfer is 10% in ratio to the diameter of the hole. The surface (65a) is hardened by chrome plating so as to have a hardness of 900 in Vicars hardness. A roller temperature controller (100) is provided near the suction roller (65) to control the surface temperature of the roller by the air supply. The surface temperature of the suction roller (65) is about 10° C. higher than temperature of the film (61)immediately before contacting to the suction roller (65).

  • Patent number: 7845930
    Abstract: The invention relates to a process or a device for the production of a three-dimensional object by layer-wise solidification of a photo-polymerizable resin by means of a planar or essentially planar construction/reference plane, at which the photo-polymerizable resin contained in the liquid material is to be hardened by electromagnetic irradiation, and wherein the material application for the subsequent layer automatically results from the separation of the last hardened layer from the construction/-reference plane, whereby the construction/reference plane is formed by an elastic film. The film is fixed in a frame, and the height position of the frame with the film is adjusted in a basin containing the liquid material such that the pressure of the liquid material compensates the sagging of the film (formation of a negative meniscus), and that the lower side of the film is permanently in contact with the material during the whole construction process.
