Concept Search - What can I type?
For a concept search, you can enter phrases, sentences, or full paragraphs in English. For example, copy and paste the abstract of a patent application or paragraphs from an article.
Concept search eliminates the need for complex Boolean syntax to inform retrieval. Our Semantic Gist engine uses advanced cognitive semantic analysis to extract the meaning of data. This reduces the chances of missing valuable information, that may result from traditional keyword searching.

Drum Removal Handle
Removing a drum vertically from a facsimile machine, printing press,
xerographic copier or the like can be accomplished quickly and easily with the
flexible, detachable handle shown.
Handle 10 is a flexible plastic strip with a snap-in type, push-pull latch 11 at
each end. The centerline distance between latches 11 is greater than the
distance between mating holes 12 on drum 20 so that the handle is forced to
curve when emplaced, providing for hand access between the strip and the
drum. The diameters of the two latch shafts are different so that the handle can
be used for orienting the drum after it has been removed from the machine. In
the case of a xerographic copier, for example, the drum can be placed on end
and one latch opened to allow removal and replacement of a photoconductor
This handle is easily replaceable, has no loose parts or auxiliary hardware,
and does not require threading, special machining, aligning, or addition of parts
to the drum. Thus, it is both low cost and suited for use by untrained operators.
