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.

Linear Self Aligning Ball Slide
This bearing enables the sliding of a load in linear motion on a shaft with
Each bearing is made of a race element which could be a plastic molded
element, provided with a closed raceway, and a pressure plate preferably made
of metal. Balls are placed in the plastic raceway which has an opening made in
one of the linear portions of the raceway. The dimensions of this opening are
such that the balls will not pass through but will be below the bottom surface (Fig. 1). The pressure plate is mounted onto the plastic race, trapping the balls so that
they cannot fall out, but are free to rotate around the raceway.
A load will be mounted for linear motion on a shaft which could be
cylindrically shaped, using two or more of the above-described bearings, as
shown on Fig. 2, with a linear portion of each raceway aligned parallel with the
direction in which the load should be moved.
