  • Patent number: 10920822
    Abstract: Embodiments disclosed herein relate to bearing assemblies and methods of manufacturing. In an embodiment, a bearing assembly includes a support ring and bearing elements. The bearing elements are mounted to and distributed circumferentially about an axis of the support ring. At least one of the bearing elements includes a polycrystalline diamond table, a substrate bonded to the polycrystalline diamond table, bonding region defined by the substrate and the polycrystalline diamond table, and a corrosion resistant region. The corrosion resistant region includes a corrosion resistant material that covers at least a portion of at least one lateral surface of the bonding region. The corrosion resistant region prevents corrosion of at least some material in the bonding region covered by the corrosion resistant region (e.g., during use). Other embodiments employ one or more sacrificial anodes as an alternative to or in combination with the corrosion resistant region.

  • Patent number: 10752534
    Abstract: A method for laser processing a laminate workpiece stack includes forming a contour line in a first transparent workpiece of the laminate workpiece stack having a resin layer disposed between the first transparent workpiece and a second transparent workpiece. Forming the contour line includes focusing a pulsed laser beam into a pulsed laser beam focal line directed into the first transparent workpiece to generate an induced absorption within the first transparent workpiece and translating the pulsed laser beam focal line along a first workpiece separation line, thereby laser forming the contour line having a plurality of defects. The method also includes separating the resin layer along a resin separation line by focusing the pulsed laser beam into the pulsed laser beam focal line directed into the resin layer and translating the pulsed laser beam focal line along the resin separation line, thereby laser ablating the resin layer.

  • Patent number: 10738417
    Abstract: A knitted spacer fabric has a tightly knitted bottom layer, a more loosely knitted upper layer and linking fibres extending across the space between the lower and upper faces. Settable material, e.g. cement, is introduced into the space between the upper and lower faces and can be caused to set by the addition of a liquid, e.g. water. Until set, the fabric is flexible and can be shaped but after the material in space has set, the fabric is rigid and can be used as a structural element in a wide range of situations. The bottom layer has an extension that extends beyond the upper face and is connected to the upper face by elastic connecting fibres that draw the extension towards the other face, thereby at least partly closing the space at the edge of the cloth and preventing the settable material from spilling out.
