WO/2016/054751 ANCHORING A JOINING ELEMENT IN AN OBJECT||WO||14.04.2016|
||PCT/CH2015/000149||WOODWELDING AG ||DIZDAR, Nihat |
A joining element (1) has an anchoring portion (12) for in-depth anchoring in the object and a head portion (11) arranged proximally of the anchoring portion with respect to an insertion axis (10). The head portion has a lateral outer surface that has a structure that is well-defined, especially within tight tolerances. The joining element is positioned relative to an object (2) of a non-liquefiable material of in a manner that the anchoring portion (12) reaches into an opening (3) of the object or is placed adjacent a mouth thereof. Then, the joining element is pressed towards a distal direction, to press the anchoring portion into the opening, and at the same time mechanical vibration energy is coupled into the joining element by a tool (6), in an amount and for a time sufficient for liquefaction of a portion of the thermoplastic material to cause interpenetration of the thermoplastic material into structures of the object. The method comprises leaving the lateral outer surface of the head portion intact, thus unaffected by the pressing and the vibration.
WO/2016/054752 METHOD OF ANCHORING A FIRST OBJECT IN A SECOND OBJECT||WO||14.04.2016|
||PCT/CH2015/000151||WOODWELDING AG ||LEHMANN, Mario |
A first object (1) is anchored in a second object (2). The first object has a material with thermoplastic properties, and the second material has a material that is solid and is penetrable by the first material when in a liquefied state. The second object has an insertion face (22) with an opening (23) having a mouth in the insertion face, and the first object has an insert portion (12) that for anchoring is placed in the opening or about the mouth thereof. For anchoring, energy suitable for liquefaction of the first material impinges in an amount and for a time sufficient for at least partial liquefaction of the first material and interpenetration of the first and second materials. The second object (2), around the opening (23), has an anisotropic strength with respect to forces perpendicular to the opening axis (25). A cross section of the opening perpendicular to the opening axis (25) and a cross section and orientation of the insert portion (12) are adapted to each other so that upon insertion of the insert portion in the opening opposite surface areas of insert portion and opening are pressed against each other by a pressing force, the pressing force between the opposite surface areas acting in a first direction of smaller strength of the second object (2) being smaller than the pressing force acting in a second direction of larger strength.

WO/2016/044957 CHAIR HAVING A DEFLECTION THAT IS MUTUALLY SYNCHRONOUS BETWEEN BACKREST AND A SEAT||WO||31.03.2016|
||PCT/CH2014/000137||VITRA PATENTE AG ||SCHNEIDER, Thomas |
The invention relates to a chair which functions by means of a deflection that is mutually synchronous between a backrest (9) and a seat (25) over a range between a respective zero position of back inclination (R0) and of seat inclination (S0) and a respective maximum back inclination (Rmax) and maximum seat inclination (Smax). The mechanism (2) that causes synchronous deflection has a spring unit (6) arranged therein. The base support (50) of a carrier unit (5) is rigidly fastened to the underframe (1), which is intended to be set on the floor. A stationary first axis of rotation (D1) and a stationary second axis of rotation (D2) extend through the base support (50). A back carrier (91) is articulated on the first axis of rotation (D1). A third axis of rotation (D3), which moves around the first axis of rotation (D1) when the mechanism (2) is adjusted, extends through the back carrier (91). A base plate (3) lies movably on the base support (50) at the front of the base plate and is articulated on the third axis of rotation (D3) at the rear of the base plate. The base support (50) is designed in the shape of a U, having a center part (54) and two arms (53) extending upward from the center part, which arms each have a shaped piece (55) protruding upward, which shaped pieces each engage in an associated opening (34) in the base plate (3). When the mechanism (2) is deflected, a relative displacement between the stationary shaped pieces (55) and the openings (34) arises. The two openings (34) are oriented in the direction of the seat depth (T) and thus at right angles to the transversely extending axes of rotation (D1, D2, D3).
