||WO||WO/2014/166003 - METHOD FOR BUILDING PRESTRESSED CONCRETE STRUCTURES BY MEANS OF PROFILES CONSISTING OF A SHAPE-MEMORY ALLOY, AND STRUCTURE PRODUCED USING SAID METHOD||16.10.2014||
||PCT/CH2014/000030||RE-FER AG||LEINENBACH, Christian|
The invention relates to a method according to which a profile consisting of a shape-memory alloy is placed into concrete, or a concrete to be reinforced is roughened on the outside, then profiles (2) consisting of a shape-memory alloy are fastened to the roughened outside (9) of the structure (6) and a cementitious matrix is applied to the roughened outside (9) to cover the profiles (2). After the cementitious matrix has set, said profiles (2) produce a contraction force and thus a tension as a result of the input of heat. The mortar covering layer (16) thereby acts as a reinforcement layer owing to the interlocking of the mortar covering layer (16) with the roughened outside (9) of the structure (6). The profiles (2) run in an outer mortar as a reinforcement layer (16) of the outside of a structure along the outside of the structure inside the mortar or reinforcement layer (16). A structure can also be prepared for a prestress in the equipped mortar or reinforcement layer by the input of heat, in that electrical cables (3) are routed from the end regions thereof to the outside of the mortar or reinforcement layer (16) or the end regions of the electrical cables (3) are accessible by removing inserts (5).

||PCT/CH2014/000040||FERAG AG||MÄDER, Carl, Conrad|
The invention relates to a conveyor system having multiple conveyor sections (2a, 2b, 2c, 2d), each of which is driven by a separate drive (21a, 21b, 21c, 21d). A regulating unit for regulating a regulated drive (21; 21a, 21b, 21c, 21d) of one of the conveyor sections (2a, 2b, 2c, 2d) has the following: a measuring device (43a, 43b, 43c, 43d) for measuring a load on the conveyor system in a coupling region (4a, 4b, 4c, 4d) between the conveyor section (2a, 2b, 2c, 2d) and another conveyor section; and a regulating device (44a, 44b, 44c, 44d) for regulating the regulated drive (21a, 21b, 21c, 21d) in accordance with the measured load (46a, 46b, 46c, 46d).

||PCT/CH2014/000044||V-ZUG AG||DOHNER, Nina|
The invention relates to a method for operating an oven using hot steam and to an oven for carrying out the method. The cooking product (2) can be introduced into the cooking chamber (1) without a steam-insulating cover, and the cooking chamber temperature (TGR) in the cooking chamber (1) can be controlled for example by introducing steam in a metered manner such that the cooking product temperature (TGG) follows a time-dependent cooking-product-temperature target value curve (TGGS). The cooking-product-temperature target value curve (TGGS) has at least one first section and a second section which follows the first section, and the cooking-product-temperature target value curve has a greater increase in the first section than in the second section. Using said method, the cooking product (2) can be cooked quickly and gently even without using a bag.

||WO||WO/2014/161099 - DEVICE HAVING A FLOW CHANNEL||09.10.2014||
||PCT/CH2014/000041||MEDELA HOLDING AG||FELBER, Armin|
The invention relates to a device having a flow channel (K) for a fluid, comprising a check valve (4) arranged in the flow channel (K), which check valve allows the fluid to flow through the flow channel (K) in a first direction and which prevents flow through the flow channel (K) in a direction opposite to the first direction. The device further comprises a flow detector (5) for detecting the flow of the fluid through the flow channel (K), wherein the flow detector (5) detects a change in the check valve (4). Said detected change serves as an indicator for the flow of the fluid. The device according to the invention allows flow to be detected using simple means, by using an existing check valve as the indicating means.

||PCT/CH2014/000037||DETRA S.A.||MAI Tu Zuan|
The invention relates to an escapement device for a clock movement which has two active vibrations having tangential drive, having a balance comprising two cams located on two separate planes. The particular arrangement of the resting surfaces makes it possible to reduce the number of pallets and the use of an escapement wheel to a single level.
||WO||WO/2014/161101 - PISTON FOR METAL DIE CASTING||09.10.2014||
||PCT/CH2014/000043||MURSELAJ, Gani||MURSELAJ, Gani|
A die casting piston (1) for die casting nonferrous metals has at least one outer part such as a piston body (11), an intermediate ring (9), a sealing ring (7) etc. that is generally ring-shaped so as to surround a piston carrier (3) and provided with an axial slot (41, 59, 117) so that the part can expand and contract tangentially during a temperature change, e.g. from ambient temperature to operating temperature. Due to this design of the outer parts of the piston, cooling can be limited to a smaller portion of the piston, preferably substantially to the rear side of the piston cover (5; 154). The result is a substantially shortened overall construction of the die casting piston (1) that is reflected by reduced production costs. In accordance with the smaller dimensions of the cooled zone, a reduced coolant flow is required. In a preferred embodiment at least two parts, namely the piston body (11) and the piston cover (5; 154), are fastened to the piston carrier (3) by means of two bayonet locks (27, 33) of different diameters, thereby allowing an easy assembly from the front face without special tools.

||PCT/CH2014/000031||MP-SYSTEM GMBH||MÜLLER, Gerhard|
The device is used to raise and move objects. The device has a box-like insert (2) for installing in the bottom side (3) of the object to be lifted. The box-like insert has at least three wheels (14), which are integrated in the box-like insert (2). By means of a pneumatic or hydraulic lifting apparatus in the box-like insert (2) having a hand pump (8) and a valve (9), the wheels (14) can be temporarily extended or pivoted downward out of the insert (2). The object equipped with the insert (2) is thus raised and can then be rolled away on the wheels (14).

||WO||WO/2014/153676 - DEVICE FOR INTRODUCING THE LIQUID PLASTIC INTO A MULTI-DAYLIGHT MOULD||02.10.2014||
||PCT/CH2014/000036||SCHÖTTLI AG||MANZ, WILLI|
The device for introducing the liquid plastic into a multi-daylight mould (3) uses a snorkel (19) which passes through the fixed mould (9) and has telescopic connection to the central mould part (7) which contains the runners (29). No valves (13) are necessary to seal the feed lines on opening of the multi-daylight mould (3). On opening of the multi-daylight mould (3) after conclusion of the hold-pressure phase, it is moreover possible to generate a vacuum which prevents further discharge of liquid plastic from the runners (29).
