||WO||WO/2014/032190 - SUSPENSION DEVICE FOR PRESENTING GOODS, HAVING A CURRENT-CARRYING PROFILED RAIL AND PRIMARY SUPPORT WHICH CAN BE HUNG THEREIN||06.03.2014||
||PCT/CH2013/000093||VISPLAY INTERNATIONAL AG||WALTER, Herbert|
The invention relates to a suspension device for presenting goods, comprising first of all a profiled rail (1), into which an electrical profiled element (2) is inserted, through which electrical conductors (24) on an insulating base (20) extend. The electrical conductors are accessible via a passage (10) of the profiled rail (1) that opens to the outside. The suspension device further comprises a primary support (4) that can be hung in the profiled rail (1) and has an insertion section (41) that can be inserted into the passage (10). An adapter (5,6) is arranged on the primary support (4). Said adapter is designed to tap current on the electrical conductors (24) in order to operate an electrical load, in particular a lighting unit (7). An electrical supply line (79) extends from the adapter (5) to the lighting unit (7). The adapter (5, 6) has current collectors (54, 64) having resilient contacts (541,641), which are intended to tap current on the electrical conductors (24). The adapter (5, 6) is inserted in a recess (45) of the primary support (4), which recess extends from close to a suspension hook (411) on the insertion section (41) into an arm part (40) of the primary support (4). The contacts (541, 641) protrude from the adapter (5, 6) in a spring-loaded manner and can be pushed back into the adapter (5, 6) when the insertion section (41) is inserted into the passage (10). When the insertion section (41) is completely inserted into the passage (10) and the contacts are positioned congruently to the electrical conductors (24), the contacts (541, 641) are pressed against the electrical conductors (24) by the spring force. The spring mounting of the current collectors (54, 64) is based on the inherent resilience thereof.

||PCT/CH2013/000150||YVES SWISS AG||NIEDERMANN, Claud|
The invention relates to an artificial nail (1) for placing onto a finger (8) or a toe, which is connected to an integrated transponder chip (2), said chip (2) is placed, preferably on the underside of the artificial nail (1). Said chip measures only a few mm in diameter and is ultra-thin, similar to a thin metal film. The artificial nail (1) is placed onto the natural nail in a customary manner using a nail treatment system. The chip (2) is designed for a near-field application, that is to say is active in a range of a few centimetres. Electromagnetic radiation activates the chip and the detected signals identify the latter. Therefore, the person wearing such an artificial nail (1) only needs to hold the latter in the vicinity of a detector and the person is already identified for any desired application.
||WO||WO/2014/032191 - BLANK, SECURITY KEY, LOCK SYSTEM, AND PRODUCTION METHOD||06.03.2014||
||PCT/CH2013/000143||KABA AG||KRAMER, Ulrich|
The invention relates to a blank (R) having two parallel lateral grooves RB-SN and a central connecting piece RB-M between said grooves. The lateral grooves run on a higher plane (N1) in an entry region (RB-E) and on a lower plane (N2) in a first coding region (RB-P). A key (S) is produced from the blank, comprising formations consisting of a central groove RB-MN in the entry region and coding recesses (Cod-V) in the coding region on the central connecting piece RB-M. The lateral grooves of the blank and the central groove of the key produce a new composite blank block-code groove = RB-SN + RB-MN. A special tumbler RB-ZH with lateral shoulders RB-ZH-S is paired with the key in the cylinder (Z), the shape of said shoulders matching the lateral grooves RB-SN and the central groove RB-MN such that, together with the special tumbler, an additional insertion block is formed in the entry region and an additional rotational block is formed in the coding region. Thus, the security of the lock system is substantially increased, and forgeries and unauthorized key copies are also prevented.

||PCT/CH2013/000148||OC OERLIKON BALZERS AG||ROHRMANN, Hartmut|
A substrate processing arrangement exhibits a thermal cavity with two reflective surfaces and a carbon heater for effectively heating substrates to temperatures of 750°C and more. It has been shown, that even substrates with low absorption properties in the infrared part of the spectrum (glas, silicon, sapphire) can be effectively heated by "sandwiching" a substrate and a heating element between two reflective surfaces, which can be established by a mirror and the target of a PVD source.

||WO||WO/2014/029034 - METHOD AND DEVICE FOR FRAGMENTING AND/OR WEAKENING MATERIAL BY MEANS OF HIGH-VOLTAGE PULSES||27.02.2014||
||PCT/CH2012/000203||SELFRAG AG||MÜLLER-SIEBERT, Reinhard|
The invention relates to a method for fragmenting and/or weakening material by means of high-voltage pulses, the material and a processing fluid being arranged in a processing zone formed between two electrodes such that the entire processing zone is flooded with processing fluid, and high-voltage pulses being applied to the electrodes such that high-voltage breakdowns occur between the two electrodes and/or such that predischarge channels are formed without breakdowns. An electrode with a metallic conductor (1) is chosen for at least one of the two electrodes, the conductor being provided partially or completely with an insulator or insulating coating (2) at the working end of the electrode that is in contact with the processing fluid, the permittivity of the insulator/insulating coating being at least 75% of the permittivity of the processing fluid. The use of such an electrode allows the energy efficiency of methods for fragmenting and/or weakening material by means of high-voltage pulses to be significantly improved and further allows greater tolerance to be achieved with respect to an increase in the conductivity of the processing fluid.

||WO||WO/2014/029033 - CLAMPING ELEMENT AND DEVICE FOR STABILIZING BONES||27.02.2014||
||PCT/CH2012/000196||MONTAVON, Lorraine||MONTAVON, Lorraine|
Disclosed is a clamping element (1) for releasably securing a rod-shaped section of a stabilization element to a bone, comprising: a three-dimensional member (12); a bore (7) that penetrates the three-dimensional member and has a bore axis (8) and a bore wall (13) suitable for holding a screw (3); and a channel (10) which penetrates the three-dimensional member and has a channel wall (17) and a channel axis (11) that is skewed in relation to the bore axis. The shortest distance A between the bore axis and the channel axis is selected in such a way that the bore and the channel do not intersect. Furthermore, between the bore and the channel, the clamping element has a deformable zone (14) which is delimited by the bore wall and the channel wall. When a screw is screwed into the bore, material is deformed on the bore wall so that an internal thread (18) is formed in the bore and the deformable zone is pressed against the channel, thus causing the channel to become narrower and allowing a rod-shaped section of a stabilization element that is inserted in the channel to be rotationally and longitudinally clamped.
