20100107414METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR MANUFACTURING GRATING - The present invention provides a method of manufacturing a grating. The method of the present invention includes fitting a plastic deformable lateral member (05-06-2010
20090288296METHOD FOR MAKING BACKLIGHT MODULE FRAME - An exemplary method for making a backlight module frame includes: providing a pair of metallic strips that are spaced apart, and a plurality of elongated metallic sheets; continuously welding the elongated metallic sheets to connect with the pair of the metallic strips one by one to form a plurality of connected semi-manufactured frames corresponding to the subsequent backlight module frame; and pressing the connected semi-manufactured frames one by one to form a plurality of backlight module frames continuously. It is convenient for the backlight module frames to be mass-produced.11-26-2009
20090049693METHOD FOR MANUFACTURING A THREE DIMENSIONAL FRAME STRUCTURE FOR USE AS A CORE STRUCTURE IN A SANDWICH CONSTRUCTION - A method is provided for manufacturing a three dimensional frame structure that can be used as a core structure in a sandwich construction. Furthermore, a frame structure is provided for a sandwich construction, which frame structure has been manufactured in accordance with the method. In the method, a two dimensional lattice structure is made from bar-shaped linear semi finished products, in which structure the semi finished products intersect at defined points of intersection; the bar-shaped linear semi finished products are connected at the points of intersection and are softened by locally applying heat to the lattice structure in each case along three non-intersecting (imaginary) straight lines. In order to impart a three dimensional shape to the lattice structure a force (F) is introduced into the lattice structure along the middle one of the (imaginary) straight lines to which heat has been applied, wherein, as a result of deformation of the lattice structure, the introduced force F is deflected into pairs of tensile forces acting in the semi finished products, as a result of which the lattice structure is pulled into a third dimension, along the middle (imaginary) straight line to which heat has been applied.02-26-2009
20090077808MODULAR ASSEMBLY - The invention is a modular assembly of modular objects for autonomously executing a variety of tasks. The modular assembly consists of a modular object called a platform, one or more modular objects called modules which are mounted to the platform in accordance with a modular assembly system, and a modular bus system for distributing electrical power and electrical signals among the modular objects in the modular assembly. The modular assembly system utilizes modular object fasteners (MOFs) and MOF-accommodating features of modular objects for facilitating the attachment of a plurality of modular objects to one another thereby creating a modular assembly in any one of a variety of configurations, an MOF being activatable when object attachment surfaces associated with two modular objects are superimposed and two object attachment points on the object attachment surfaces coincide.03-26-2009
