Patents recently issued for clients of Taylor IP:

U.S. Patent No. D762,644, entitled “Wall mount control interface”, issued on August 2, 2016, is directed to the ornamental design for a wall mount control interface, as shown and described.

U.S. Patent No. 9,408,699, entitled “Removable augment for medical implant”, issued on August 9, 2016, is directed to an orthopaedic augment includes a porous material, which is removably attached to a medical implant. The porous material has a bone ingrowth surface for interfacing with an existing bone material and another surface for interfacing with the medical implant.

U.S. Patent No. 9,415,520, entitled “Swivel link for mounting end of arm tooling”, issued on August 16, 2016, is directed to a robotic end of arm tooling system including a robotic arm having an end, and at least one swivel link assembly attached to the robotic arm. The swivel link assembly includes a flexible ball base connected to the end of the robotic arm, and a knuckle joint defining at least one adjustable axis. The flexible ball base is able to swivel relative to the adjustable axis. An adapter has a proximal end and a distal end, with the proximal end connected to the flexible ball base, and an end-effector connected to the distal end.

U.S. Patent No. 9,422,885, entitled “Method for reducing the particle emission of an internal combustion engine and engine controller”, issued on August 23, 2016, is directed to the present invention relates to a method for reducing the particle emissions of an internal combustion engine over its service life. The number of cylinders of the internal combustion engine in which post-injection is carried out is incrementally increased during the service life of the internal combustion engine. The increase in the number of cylinders receiving a post-injection may depend upon at least one parameter, which may be a running time, a distance performance, a particle concentration in exhaust gas, a load profile, or other parameter. The individual cylinders receiving post-injection may be changed to distribute wear.

U.S. Patent No. 9,423,218, entitled “Method for producing a ring-shaped or plate-like element”, issued on August 23, 2016, is directed to the invention relates to a method for producing a ring-shaped or plate-like element, in particular for a metal-sealing material-feedthrough, in particular for devices which are subjected to high pressures, preferably igniters for airbags or belt tensioning devices, whereby a blank, especially in the embodiment of a wire-shaped material is provided and the blank is subjected to processing so that a feedthrough-opening can be incorporated into a ring-shaped or plate-like element created from the blank.

U.S. Patent No. 9,428,324, entitled “Packaging unit for a roll of material”, issued on August 30, 2016, is directed to a packaging unit for a glass wound on a winding shaft includes a transport unit with a mounting support for the winding core which has a transport unit interior part and a transport unit exterior part. The transport unit interior part includes a floor element and side elements. The transport unit exterior part includes a floor element, side elements and a cover element. The mounting support for the winding core is always connected with or formed by two side elements of the transport unit interior part which are located opposite each other. The transport unit interior part is spaced apart from the transport unit exterior part in a floor region by spring elements, so that the transport unit interior part is arranged vibration-decoupled from the transport unit exterior part. A method of utilizing a transport unit for packaging a glass that is wound on a winding core is also disclosed.

U.S. Patent No. 9,428,928, entitled “Swim spa with plenum arrangement at head end”, issued on August 30, 2016, is directed to a swimming pool with a circulating water flow includes a plurality of side walls adjacent a swimming compartment, one of the side walls including an outlet, at least one inlet positioned below and at a lateral side of the outlet, and a plenum arrangement on a side of the one wall opposite the swimming compartment. The plenum arrangement is in communication with each inlet and the outlet. A water propulsion device is positioned within the plenum arrangement and effects a pair of circuitous water flow paths within the swimming compartment. The swimming pool having an absence of a separate return flow plenum arrangement extending along the length of the swimming compartment.
