20090039062TORCH BRAZING PROCESS AND APPARATUS THEREFOR - A process and apparatus for brazing a metal alloy component, such as a superalloy component of a gas turbine engine. The process employs a plasma torch in a non-transferred arc mode to generate an electric arc between an electrode and a housing in which an orifice is defined. A plasma gas is flowed through the arc so as to ionize the plasma gas, and the resulting ionized plasma gas is discharged through the orifice to form a plasma jet. The plasma torch is configured so that the plasma jet is shrouded from a surrounding oxidizing atmosphere by a shielding gas flowing cocurrently with the plasma jet. A braze alloy material is introduced into the plasma jet, which is directed at a surface of the component to form a brazement that is metallurgically bonded to the component without melting the component.02-12-2009

20130037526AUTOMATIC REPAIR OF ELECTRIC CIRCUITS - An apparatus and method for automatically inspecting and repairing printed circuit boards includes an inspection functionality automatically inspecting printed circuit boards and providing a machine readable indication of regions thereon requiring repair. An automatic repair functionality employs the machine readable indication to repair the printed circuit boards at some of the regions thereon requiring repair. An automatic repair reformulation functionality automatically reinspects the printed circuit boards following an initial automatic repair operation, and provides to the automatic repair functionality a reformulated machine readable indication of regions thereon requiring repair.02-14-2013
20130056447AUTOMATION OF REACTION METALLURGICAL JOINING FOR COPPER CONDUCTORS - Copper conductor members or other copper-based workpieces are welded using a suitable copper alloy material that is reactive with the joining surfaces of the copper members. The reactive metal material may be applied as a thin metal foil strip between assembled facing joining surfaces. The members are pressed together against the reactive material and electrical resistance heated in forming the weld. Practices are adapted for forming many such welds in the pairs of facing ends of conductor bars or wires assembled, for example, in slots in a stator for a vehicle traction motor. Practices are disclosed for shaping and automated placement of suitably sized and shaped foils of reactive metal. Practices are also disclosed for use of a resistance welding tool in aligning and heating the many pairs of conductors to be welded.03-07-2013

20120132625FORMING OF METALLIC GLASS BY RAPID CAPACITOR DISCHARGE FORGING - A forging apparatus and method of uniformly heating, rheologically softening, and thermoplastically forming metallic glasses rapidly into a net shape using a rapid capacitor discharge forming (RCDF) tool are provided. The RCDF method utilizes the discharge of electrical energy stored in a capacitor to uniformly and rapidly heat a sample or charge of metallic glass alloy to a predetermined “process temperature” between the glass transition temperature of the amorphous material and the equilibrium melting point of the alloy in a time scale of several milliseconds or less. Once the sample is uniformly heated such that the entire sample block has a sufficiently low process viscosity it may be shaped into high quality amorphous bulk articles via forging in a time frame of less than 1 second.05-31-2012
