    No full text
    The invention relates to a belt 100 made from metal for use in a paper- or board making machine and a method for manufacturing such a belt. The belt has a plate shaped belt body 10 adapted to be formed into an endless loop, and has a coating 101, 102 formed on at least one surface of the belt, wherein the coating is formed from a different material than the belt body 10. The belt is characterized in that stress in the coating 101, 102 is different from stress in the coated belt body 10, for example, the stress in the coating 101 is compressive stress, while the stress in the belt body 10 is tensile stress, when the coated side of the belt is the outside surface side of a belt loop formed form this belt. Alternatively or additionally, the stress in the coating 102 is tensile stress and the stress in the belt body 10 is compressive stress, when the coated side of the belt body is the inside surface side of a belt loop formed form this belt. The invention further provides a method for manufacturing such a belt in which method the belt body 10 is bent with a radius and/or in a direction different from the bending of the belt 100 when the belt is in use in form of said loop in the paper- or board making machine, and the coating 101, 102 is formed on at least one surface of the belt body while the belt body 10 is in the bent state.Patent family as of 4.1.2024AT507957 A2 20100915 AT20080009423 20080312AT507957 A3 20110415 AT20080009423 20080312AT507957 B1 20110615 AT20080009423 20080312DE112008003802 T5 20110224 DE200811003802T 20080312DE202008018418 U1 20131024 DE200820018418U 20080312WO09112071 A1 20090917 WO2008EP52927 20080312</p

    Belt assembly for a machine for making and/or finishing a fibrous web and use of the belt assembly for moving a web to a dryer section of a paper- or board-making machine

    The invention relates to a belt assembly (10) in a machine for making and/or finishing a fibrous web. The belt assembly comprises at least two guiding rolls (11, 31), a belt (5) which forms an endless loop, the belt is guided by and runs over the guiding rolls (11, 31) in a belt moving direction (B), a detecting means adapted to detect a tension of the belt (5) in the belt moving direction (B), and a controlling means adapted to independently adjust positions of axial end portions of at least one of the guiding rolls (11, 31) both in a horizontal direction that is perpendicular to the axis of said roll and in a vertical direction that is perpendicular to the axis of said roll and perpendicular to the horizontal direction such that the position of the belt (5) with regard to at least one roll (31)is controlled. Furthermore, the belt assembly according to the invention is used for moving a web to a dryer section of a paper- or board-making machine, wherein a closed draw or an open draw of the web disposed on the belt (5) is provided in order to take over the web from the belt to the dryer section.Patent family as of 3.1.2024DE202012013544 U1 20170921 DE201220013544U 20121018EP2722436 A1 20140423 EP20120189023 20121018</p

    The dual spacecraft mission BepiColombo is the first joint mission between the European Space Agency (ESA) and the Japanese Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) to explore the planet Mercury. BepiColombo was launched from Kourou (French Guiana) on October 20th, 2018, in its packed configuration including two spacecraft, a transfer module, and a sunshield. BepiColombo cruise trajectory is a long journey into the inner heliosphere, and it includes one flyby of the Earth (in April 2020), two of Venus (in October 2020 and August 2021), and six of Mercury (starting from 2021), before orbit insertion in December 2025. A big part of the mission instruments will be fully operational during the mission cruise phase, allowing unprecedented investigation of the different environments that will encounter during the 7-years long cruise. The present paper reviews all the planetary flybys and some interesting cruise configurations. Additional scientific research that will emerge in the coming years is also discussed, including the instruments that can contribute.Peer reviewe
