  • Publication number: 20010045462
    Abstract: A scanner can read machine-readable code on an object. A scanner has a scanning device, a data device, and a registration device. The scanning device can repetitively scan the code and provide a scan signal repetitively corresponding to at least fragments of the code. The data device is coupled to the scanning device and responds to its scan signal for repetitively storing it. The registration device is coupled to the data device for reconstructing the code from at least two of the fragments of the code by relatively shifting the code fragments until they are in registration.

  • Patent number: 6100412
    Abstract: A process for the production of an epoxide and/or its corresponding vicinal diol by a reaction of an olefinic compound with hydrogen peroxide, wherein the reaction is performed in the presence of a carbon dioxide phase at a temperature and a pressure above the critical point of carbon dioxide.

  • Patent number: 6028018
    Abstract: An improved wet wipe includes a multiple layer basesheet to provide a unique combination of properties to the wipe which are not capable in a single layer basesheet. The layered basesheet includes at least two layers which include different fibers and have different physical properties. One of the layers may include polyethylene fibers to provide a soft, gentle feel for contacting the skin of the user during use while the other layer may include polypropylene fibers to provide strength and resiliency to the wipe to withstand the forces exerted by the user, and maintain its shape and integrity in use.

  • Patent number: 5548107
    Abstract: A scanner which can read machine-readable code on an object. A scanner has a scanning device, a data device and a reconstruction device. The scanning device can repetively scan the code and provide a scan signal repetively corresponding to at least fragments of the code. The data device is coupled to the scanning device and responds to its scan signal for repetively storing it. The reconstruction device is coupled to the data device for reconstructing the code from at least two of the fragments of the code.

  • Patent number: 5028772
    Abstract: A scanner can read machine-readable code on an object. A scanner has a scanning device, a data device, and a registration device. The scanning device can repetitively scan the code and provide a scan signal repetitively corresponding to at least fragments of the code. The data device is coupled to the scanning device and responds to its scan signal for repetitively storing it. The registration device is coupled to the data device for reconstructing the code from at least two of the fragments of the code. The registration device relatively shifts the code fragments until they are in registration. Thus one of the fragments provides a beginning portion of the code and the other an ending portion. Both fragments provide a registered middle portion of the code.
