  • Patent number: 11688305
    Abstract: A label sheet assembly and method is disclosed for improving the process of feeding label sheets through a printer. The label sheet assembly may include a facestock layer and a liner sheet. The facestock layer may include an adhesive layer along at least a portion of a first side and include a label surface along at least a portion of the second side opposite the adhesive layer. The liner sheet layer may include at least one surface feature provided along a back side of the liner sheet. In another embodiment, the facestock layer may include at least one surface feature provided along the front of the facestock layer. The surface features may create a zone of increased friction or increase tactile sensitivity along the various surfaces of the label sheet assembly to improve printer processing.

  • Patent number: 8968002
    Abstract: A dental implant system having a dental implant, an abutment and a threaded screw is provided. The abutment has a guiding and lock structure and the dental implant has a complementary guiding and lock structure, for associating the abutment to the dental implant, with each guiding and lock structure having an anti-rotational structure. Threaded engagement of the threaded screw to a threaded section of the dental implant is not possible, when the anti-rotational structure of the abutment is held in an intermediate position on the anti-rotational structure of the dental implant, which intermediate position is a position where the longitudinal axes of the guiding and lock structures of the abutment and of the dental implant are coaxial with one another.

  • Patent number: 4879955
    Abstract: An office workstation with a table plate (2) which rests on a lower frame (6). At the front left or right-hand side the table plate has an oblique edge (44) against which attachments, particularly plates (50,60) can be placed. The table plate is mounted on the lower frame (6) with a height adjustment device (68). The height adjustment device engages in through-openings (28) in the table plate (2). Support arms (12, 48) of an upper frame are to be firmly connected to the lower frame through these openings, when required. The upper frame can carry additional components (75,76) such as storage shelves or a vertical wall (16). The lower frame is composed of legs (7), which can serve to guide cables, and joint bodies (18,160) which are hollow and represent the connection between the legs and horizontal hollow beams (22,23,24,116). The hollow beams are accessible from the exterior through a flap (118) extending over their entire length.
