  • Patent number: 11980703
    Abstract: A volatile material dispenser includes a housing that defines a longitudinal axis and is configured to receive a refill containing a volatile material and a wick. The volatile material dispenser also includes a cylinder that includes an inner wall that defines an opening and an interior edge, a resistor embedded in the cylinder, and a heater chassis that includes an inner wall that defines a passage between an upper end and a lower end. The upper end of the heater chassis abuts the interior edge of the cylinder. In addition, the inner wall of the cylinder extends away from the longitudinal axis at a first angle and the inner wall of the heater chassis extends away from the longitudinal axis at a second angle.

  • Patent number: 11952176
    Abstract: A storage bag has first and second side surfaces, and a sealable and an unsealable opening. A bottom end of the bag is movable between a flat configuration with the first and second side surfaces positioned adjacent to each other, and an expanded configuration with the first and second side surfaces being spaced from each other. Shape retaining strips are provided adjacent to the opening that can maintain the shape of the opening. The shape retaining strips are capable of maintaining the opening of the bag such that a distance between the first and second side surfaces at the top end of the bag is about equal to the distance between the first and second side surfaces at the bottom end of the bag.

  • Patent number: 11904568
    Abstract: A process for making a container includes the step of providing at least one of a slider, sticker, textured surface, pattern, or embossed surface along a folded web of thermoplastic material that comprises a plurality of container templates. The process also includes the step of picking up, with a turner, each container template. The turner includes one or more rotator assemblies that include a rotatable shaft and a bag-contacting surface connected to an end of the rotatable shaft. The bag-contacting surface is configured to engage a top exterior side of each container template. Additionally, the process includes the step of reorienting, with the turner, each container template. The rotatable shaft is configured to horizontally translate and rotate each container template.
