  • Patent number: 10344432
    Abstract: A method for manufacturing a paper product including providing a forming fabric and forming a web on the fabric. The forming fabric includes warp knuckles of directly adjacent warp yarns overlapping the cross-machine direction forming a continuous warp knuckle pattern angled to the machine and cross-machine directions. A first line connecting the centers of first two directly adjacent warp knuckles of the continuous warp knuckle pattern is angled to the machine direction at a first angle different from a second angle of a second line connecting the centers of second two directly adjacent warp knuckles of the continuous warp knuckle pattern so that a line connecting the centers of all warp knuckles forming the continuous warp knuckle pattern is non-straight. At least 50% of all the continuous warp knuckle patterns have an overlap of at least three consecutive weft yarns.

  • Publication number: 20190191939
    Abstract: A dispenser for web of absorbent paper, tissue or nonwoven material in the form of a roll is provided. The dispenser has a housing with a first dispensing opening for the web and a drive roller extending along a longitudinal axis. The drive roller is arranged in the housing in, or at, the first dispensing opening. The roll is arranged to abut the drive roller to be frictionally engaged with the drive roller. The dispenser has a feeding mechanism for rotating the roll to feed the web in a direction from the roll towards the first dispensing opening. The feeding mechanism has a bar extending at least partially along the drive roller. When the bar is pushed from a start position to rotate about the pivot axis, the drive roller and the roll are caused to rotate. The bar is biased towards the start position.

  • Publication number: 20190083333
    Abstract: A waist belt for an absorbent article has an inner surface facing the wearer during use and an outer surface facing away from the wearer during use. The belt includes a first belt end section provided with a fastening component and a second belt end section provided with a mating fastening component. Each one of the fastening component and the mating fastening component includes a first mechanical connector structure and a second mechanical connector structure. Each mechanical connector structure is capable of forming a mechanical interconnection with the other mechanical connector structure, and is incapable of forming a mechanical interconnection with an identical structure. Further, the fastening component and the mating fastening component are mechanically connectable via the first mechanical connector structure and the second mechanical connector structure. The disclosure also relates to a disposable article including a chassis and a waist belt.
