    Abstract: The present disclosure includes a forming and filling head for simultaneously forming and filling a polymeric container with liquid. The forming and filling head includes a nozzle shaft assembly having a first portion removably engaged with a second portion. The nozzle shaft assembly defines a through-bore extending through each one of the first portion and the second portion. An annular seal is within the through-bore and is seated at one of the first portion and the second portion to permit access to the annular seal when the first portion and the second portion are disengaged. Flow ports are defined by a wall of the nozzle shaft assembly. The flow ports extend from an exterior of the nozzle shaft assembly to the through-bore to direct the liquid for forming and filling the polymeric container into the through-bore.

  • Publication number: 20180368467
    Abstract: Smoke-able shells that are sold commercially for use in roll your own cigarettes, cigars and cigarillos may be made from smoke-able material such as leaves and homogenates and humectant. Humectant may be applied to the smoke-able material via spraying and/or addition to adhesive that is used to bond two or more layers of smoke-able materials together to form a smoke-able shell. The resulting smoke-able shells are characterized by reduced mold growth on their surface compared to the same smoke-able shells minus the humectant.

  • Patent number: 10117462
    Abstract: The disclosure relates to a personal electronic vaporizer configured to receive a selected oven assembly and heat the medium therein in accordance with a heating profile associate with the selected oven assembly. The personal electronic vaporizer may define a pathway entirely surrounded by a material. The material is preferably an inert material such as glass or a material otherwise desirable to channel the vapors emitted by the heated medium to the user. The user may swap or select a different oven assembly associated with a different heating profile. The first oven assembly is thereafter removed from the personal electronic vaporizer and replaced with the newly selected oven assembly. The personal electronic vaporizer may automatically recognize the particular selected oven assembly and heat the substance therein according to a predefined heating profile associate with the oven assembly.

  • Publication number: 20180243520
    Abstract: A vaporizer pod for use in a vaporizer is shown and described herein. The vaporizer pod defines a one-way channel therethrough, extending from a bottom end of the vaporizer pod to a top end. The vaporizer pod may include a valve disposed at the top end and a valve disposed at the bottom end, whereby the valves open the one-way channel as the user draws air through the vaporizer. The valves rest against and close a plurality of air channels to prevent the vaporizer liquid or wax from spilling out of the pod when the user is not drawing air through the vaporizer. The vaporizer pod may be reusable or disposable, whereby the reusable vaporizer pod includes a main body split into an upper and lower tube which the user may pull apart to load vaping material into the vaporizer pod. The disposable vaporizer pod includes a unitary main body.

  • Publication number: 20170303587
    Abstract: The disclosure relates to an oven assembly for use with a personal electronic vaporizer configured to receive the oven assembly and heat a medium therein. The oven assembly may include a cup for use in heating the medium. The cup may define a pocket therein with a shaft extending into the pocket from a base plate. The shaft defines a shaft channel extending from the exterior of the cup to the pocket. As air is drawn through the personal electronic vaporizer, the air travels around the exterior of the cup and into the shaft channel to enter the pocket. The medium disposed therein is heated and vaporized and carried along to the user in the stream of air after it leaves the pocket.

  • Patent number: 9211712
    Abstract: A print head includes an aperture plate and a plurality of duplicate, injection molded, jet modules that are coupled to the aperture plate. Each of the jet modules includes a plurality of jets and corresponding ink supply cavity that seals against the aperture plate and provides ink to the jets. Each jet module further includes a registration member and an edge alignment feature. The registration member holds the jet module in place relative to a corresponding registration member of the aperture plate. The edge alignment feature overlaps a corresponding alignment feature on a neighboring one of the jet modules in a z-direction and minimizes misalignment between the jet module and the neighboring jet module.
