  • Patent number: 6185840
    Abstract: A layer which can be hardened by radiation is located on a substrate surface of paper, glass, plastics, wood or metal. The layer on the substrate, which is guided through a hardening stage, is subjected to radiation with ultraviolet light whilst the lamp chamber is flushed directly with a gas. The layer can be simultaneously tempered and rendered inert or treated in a chemically active manner.

  • Patent number: 5218905
    Abstract: A printing assembly comprises a counter-pressure cylinder (11) and an inking unit (17). The counter-pressure cylinder (11) or the inking unit (17) and/or the substrate (10) are divided axially into a plurality of thermal zones (Z1, Z2 . . . Zn) that may be independently heated or cooled so as to change the viscosity of the ink in this zone. Thereby, the amount of ink may be thermally influenced over the width of printing. The control of the ink amount may be effected in the axial direction during the printing operation without any changes in the mechanism of the machine.

  • Patent number: 5058760
    Abstract: An easy-open package has a vessel forming an upwardly open compartment and having an annular rim surrounding the compartment and a foil engaging the rim of the vessel part all around the compartment, having an open tab which projects laterally past the rim, and formed with a tear line extending around the compartment except at the tab and extending around and delimiting of the tab. The tab is unitarily formed with the foil and is connected to the foil by an integral web that overlies and is bonded to the rim. The bond between the foil and the vessel is substantially weaker at the web than elsewhere.

  • Patent number: 5002223
    Abstract: An easy-open package comprises a vessel part forming an upwardly open compartment and having an annular rim surrounding the compartment and a foil part adhered to the rim of the vessel part all around the compartment, unitarily formed with an open tab which projects laterally past the rim, and formed with a tear line extending around the compartment except at the tab and extending to an outer periphery of the foil part to each side of the tab. One of the parts is formed as a laminate including a metal layer, a synthetic-resin layer, and a relatively weak bond securing the synthetic-resin layer to the metal layer. The synthetic-resin layer of the one part is bonded to the other part along an annular strip running around the rim with a relatively strong bond and the one part is formed in the synthetic-resin layer with at least one secondary tear line at the tab.

  • Patent number: 4990364
    Abstract: There are described solvent-free, low monomer or monomer-free polymerizable melt compositions suitable for the corrosion and abrasion resistant coatings of substrates and formed bodies of metal, plastic, cellulose materials and/or inorganic materials and/or the creation of a protective film with barrier properties and methods of making them. The melt compositions are particularly useful especially for use in packaging, and comprise: (a) at least one polymerizable, hydroxyl-containing polymer having an average molecular weight (Mw) of between 1,000 and 500,000 and a glass transition temperature (Tg) of .gtoreq.+20.degree. C., and/or (b) at least one polymerizable, linear unbranched and/or branched polyester and/or its copolymer having an average molecular weight (Mw) of between 800 and 50,000 and a glass transition temperature (Tg) of .gtoreq.-50.degree.

  • Patent number: 4842887
    Abstract: At least one complete surface of at least one metallic part of a can is given a uniform coating of corrosion-preventing lacquer and this part is subsequently worked such that the metal of the part is exposed at regions at least immediately adjacent the coated surface. Dots of lacquer are sprayed by the ink-jet method substantially only on the exposed regions of the part after working thereof and so that the dots together form a continuous layer covering the exposed regions. According to the viscosity of the lacquer the surface coating can be achieved by partially overlapping adjacent dots of the applied lacquer or without overlapping by the running together of the adjacent dots of the liquid, with no excess material having to be applied to and subsequently removed from the regions to be coated.

  • Patent number: 4752172
    Abstract: The apparatus of the invention provides a coat of lacquer or varnish on a tear-off cover, which is formed from a thin ferromagnetic metal, has a circumferential supporting lip and is equipped with a tear-off opening made by scoring and/or punching in or out the cover surface. To provide the coat of lacquer or varnish the cover is moved through an electric coating tank, a washing tank and drying zone with the plane of the cover oriented substantially vertically while being supported exclusively on the surface of the inner wall of the supporting lip. The entire surface of the cover is completely covered by the lacquer or varnish coating except for a small portion on the inner wall of the supporting lip which is positioned inside the closed container in a folded seam and/or covered by a sealing material.

  • Patent number: 4740284
    Abstract: The holding device for conveying container bodies open at both ends made of ferromagnetic material on a conveyor has at least one permanent magnet for generating magnetic forces necessary to hold the container body on it, a supporting member attachable with the conveyor and two framework components (one of which may be made slidable) held spaced from each other aligned in the longitudinal direction of the supporting member. Alternatively in two specific examples of our invention the permanent magnet is provided in the vicinity of the framework components and the supporting member is insertable in the container body or the permanent magnet is provided on the supporting member or it is the supporting member and an electrode distinct from the supporting member is insertable in the container body. The framework members have a substantially U-shape cross section and are arranged so that their free side pieces on each side thereof parallel the longitudinal direction of the supporting member.

  • Patent number: 4693801
    Abstract: A decor is applied to a tin can by printing a pattern onto a metallic surface thereof directly and hardening the pattern on the metallic surface. The can is then immersion-coated in an electroimmersion lacquering unit to provide it with a lacquer coating. The printed pattern can be an electrically conductive lacquer in order to insure the electroimmersion coating of the printed pattern as well as the exposed metal surfaces which may surround it.

  • Patent number: 4676366
    Abstract: A holding device for gripping and retaining containers, including can bodies or cans which have one open end, during transport on conveyers, includes a planar carrier which can be connected at the conveyer chain or forms part thereof. A plurality of clamp elements is secured at the carrier. The clamp elements are made of resilient material, and they are fastened for clamping or snap-like retention of the container bodies at diametrically opposite locations respectively in pairs at the carrier. The clamp elements of each pair have respectively crossing adjacent sections, and the inner clamp is adapted to operatively contact the peripheral edge of the respective retained container. The outer clamp is adapted to operatively engage the outer wall surface of the container rim which is directed towards the carrier.
