  • Patent number: 10088801
    Abstract: A freeform holographic imaging apparatus includes an imaging table for supporting a substrate, an imaging beam positioned adjacent to the imaging table; and a controller operatively connected to the imaging beam and configured to control a position of the imaging beam with respect to the imaging table. The controller is configured to control the imaging beam to image first and second holographic optical elements on the substrate, wherein each of the first and second holographic optical elements are a single pixel. The first holographic optical element is imaged according to a first parameter set and the second holographic optical element is imaged according to a second parameter set.

  • Patent number: 9952556
    Abstract: A method for single-write holographic imaging involves determining a layout of a plurality of holographic images on a substrate, the plurality of holographic images including at least a first holographic image having a first parameter set and a second holographic image having a second parameter set, inputting the parameter sets into a database and controlling an imaging apparatus to image the first and second holographic images on the substrate in a single session to create an integrated holographic pattern.

  • Patent number: 9938111
    Abstract: An embodiment of the inventive method of transfer lamination involves metallizing a first side of a film and then bonding the metallized first side to a substrate. Then a coating is applied to a second side of the film after it has been bonded to the substrate. The bonded film and substrate are then placed in an oven. The film is then stripped from the substrate leaving metal from the film deposited on the substrate. The application of the coating is performed as an inline part of the transfer lamination process thereby providing an ease of manufacture presently unknown.

  • Publication number: 20170274696
    Abstract: A manufacturing assembly for the creation of laminate constructions includes a calendar device arranged to accept a laminate of three or more layers of material stock, as provided by a matching three or more rolls of the material stock. A sheeting device is arranged downstream from the calendar device for cutting the laminate into predetermined sizes, such that the laminate is kept in a non-rolled, planar orientation subsequent to the laminate exiting the calendar and before the laminate is sheeted by the sheeting device.

  • Patent number: 9005391
    Abstract: An embodiment of the inventive method of transfer lamination bonding a first metallized side of a film to a substrate. Then a breakaway coating is applied to a second, non-metallized side of the film after the first metallized side has been bonded to the substrate. The bonded film and substrate are then placed in an oven. The film is then stripped from the substrate leaving metal from the film deposited on the substrate. The application of the breakaway coating is performed as an inline part of the transfer lamination process thereby providing an ease of manufacture presently unknown.

  • Patent number: 8472095
    Abstract: A method for producing true three dimension imagery includes positioning an object to be imaged and directing imaging laser beams to impinge upon the object. Splitting the imaging laser beams after the imaging laser beams have impinged upon the object is then accomplished, while redirecting the split imaging beams to a recording substrate.
