|20130292889||REDUCED NOISE DECOUPLER - A reduced noise decoupler has a perimeter with a wavy form. This provides a significant reduction in the initial contact noise. Hydraulic pressure deforms the wavy edges, pressing the wavy edge flat and creating the necessary seal. The edge geometry is created such that pressure will flatten the decoupler perimeter without creasing, ensuring a proper seal without losses. This is achieved by drawing the wavy detail from the perimeter to an interior of the decoupler body in alternating fashion to create a pattern of peaks and troughs bounded by thicker sections, allowing the edges to easily deform without creasing.||11-07-2013|
|20130174492||CO-EXTRUDED ROLL FORMED BRIGHT EXTRUSION WITH INTEGRAL END FORMS - A weatherstrip and associated method of forming the weatherstrip includes a body having a core formed of a first material and at least partially encapsulated in an extrusion material. A bright strip or metal show surface is integrated within the extrusion body to provide an aesthetically pleasing bright strip. The end of the bright strip is formed at an end of the weatherstrip to provide a one-piece structure.||07-11-2013|
|20130152472||WEATHERSTRIP INCORPORATING PINCH SENSOR, NEW PINCH SENSORS, AND ASSOCIATED METHOD - A weatherstrip such as a glass run incorporates an associated anti-entrapment sensor. The glass run includes an elastomeric material having first and second legs interconnected by a base wall that together receive an associated automotive window peripheral edge and a recess formed in the elastomeric material dimensioned to receive the associated anti-entrapment sensor therein. The recess has a substantially T-shaped cross-sectional cavity in one embodiment and the pinch sensor has a substantially T-shaped cross-sectional conformation dimensioned for mating receipt in the T-shaped cavity. Facing, first and second flexible sidewall portions flex for ease of insertion and retention of the pinch sensor in the cavity. A fusible layer secures the weatherstrip and pinch sensor after assembly thereof. Preferably, the weatherstrip is formed from multiple materials, one of which is a low friction material.||06-20-2013|
|20130020060||HEAT EXCHANGER - A heat exchanger includes a first header tank, a second header tank, and a core. The core is positioned between the first header tank and the second header tank. The core includes a plurality of tubes, a set of cooling fins and a plurality of channels. Each tube of the plurality of tubes provides fluid communication between the first header tank and the second header tank. The set of cooling fins are located between the heat exchange tubes of the plurality of tubes to increase a heat exchange area. The plurality of channels is defined by the plurality of tubes and the set of cooling fins. The channels of the plurality of channels are operative for directing a flow of air through the core such that a flow of air enters a front face of the core in a first direction and is generally directed toward a plane.||01-24-2013|
|20120091746||INNER GARNISH ASSEMBLY MODULE SYSTEM - A one-piece inner garnish assembly module system (MS) joins an inner garnish molding (IG), primary seal (PS), glass run (GR), and inner beltline weatherstrip (IB) into a single component prior to installation of the module system on a vehicle. The garnish is secured to the glass run along the A and B pillars, and the interconnecting header portion of a vehicle door. In addition, the primary seal is operatively associated or secured to the garnish, and may be pin-mounted to the door, or mechanically connected, and/or adhesively secured to the door.||04-19-2012|
|20110057366||AXIALLY DAMPED HYDRAULIC MOUNT ASSEMBLY - A hydromount assembly includes a first fluid chamber and a second fluid chamber that communicate with one another through an inertia track. The inertia track is interposed between the first and second fluid chambers, and is used as a fluid actuating plunger to move relative to at least one of the first and second chambers in response to vibration to pump fluid from the first chamber to the second chamber, and vice versa, through the inertia track. An opening extends through the first and second fluid chambers and the inertia track and receives a shaft therein. The inertia track is secured to the shaft so that axial movement of the shaft results in axial movement of the inertia track. Elastomeric portions of the hydromount may be differently tuned from one another. The center mount hydromount may be selectively assembled with a body mount, or the body mount integrated into the hydromount whereby the center mount arrangement increases the functionality of the damper.||03-10-2011|
