  • Publication number: 20130225381
    Abstract: A method for forming a tubular sheet product roll includes providing a sheet product roll having a first configuration and a void, centering a rotational axis of the sheet product roll on a longitudinal axis of a first tool, and inserting the first tool into the void of the sheet product roll to define an inner diameter of the void and to form the sheet product roll having a second configuration different from the first configuration.

  • Publication number: 20130193249
    Abstract: A method for fabricating a roll of sheet product includes forming reference indications on portions of a sheet material, wrapping the sheet material about a spindle to form a core about the spindle, wrapping a sheet product about the core to form a log, removing the spindle from the log, and cutting the log into individual rolls of sheet product, wherein the log is cut proximate to the reference indications such that the reference indications are arranged at a first distal end of each of the individual rolls of sheet product.

  • Publication number: 20130186581
    Abstract: An absorbent cellulosic sheet includes (i) a plurality of fiber-enriched pileated regions having fibers that are oriented in a direction transverse to a machine direction (MD) of the sheet, and (ii) a plurality of linking regions that link the fiber-enriched regions together. The linking regions have fibers that have an orientation that is offset from the orientation of the fibers in the plurality of fiber-enriched pileated regions.

  • Publication number: 20130153164
    Abstract: A multi-ply wiper/towel product includes at least one wet laid web having at least 10% fibrillated cellulosic microfiber, and at least about 40% wood pulp derived papermaking fibers. The at least one wet laid web has formed therein (i) a plurality of fiber-enriched hollow domed regions on the upper side of the at least one wet laid web having a relatively high local basis weight, (ii) connecting regions having a relatively lower local basis weight forming a network interconnecting the relatively high local basis weight domed regions of the one wet laid web, and (iii) transition areas with upwardly and inwardly inflected consolidated fibrous regions transitioning from the connecting regions into the domed regions.

  • Publication number: 20130126594
    Abstract: A container has a plurality of panels integrally arranged with respect to a set of orthogonal x, y and z axes, the z-axis defining a direction line in which the container is configured to support a stacking load. The panels are folded to define a form having a plurality of folded edges oriented perpendicular to the z-axis. At least one of the plurality of folded edges has a cutout region having a planar edge oriented perpendicular to the z-axis. The plurality of panels includes a plurality of cut edges oriented and disposed inline with respective ones of the plurality of folded edges. At least one of the plurality of cut edges has a projection disposed contiguous and planar with a respective panel. The projection includes a planar edge oriented perpendicular to the z-axis, the planar edge being disposed within an adjacently disposed cutout region.

  • Publication number: 20130120555
    Abstract: A method includes receiving a first image of a first line of perforations in a sheet product, processing the first image to determine whether the first line of perforations are within specifications, and outputting an indication to an operator indicative that the first line of perforations are not within specifications responsive to determining that the first line of perforations are not within specifications.
