  • Publication number: 20230054966
    Abstract: A structured tissue belt assembly including a supporting layer and a nonwoven web contacting layer. The supporting layer has a top surface and a bottom surface and is formed of monofilaments including one or more layers of warp yarns interwoven with weft yarns in a repeating pattern. At least one of: a) at least some of the warp yarns; or b) at least some of the weft yarns, include laser energy absorbent material, and at least one of: a) at least some of the warp yarns; or b) at least some of the weft yarns include laser energy scattering material. Laser welds attach the bottom surface of the web contacting layer to the top surface of the supporting layer at points where the web contacting layer contacts the at least one of: a) the at least some of the warp yarns; or b) the at least some of the weft yarns that include laser energy absorbent material.

  • Patent number: 11399120
    Abstract: Provided is a compatibility promotion method, storage medium, and system for HDMI. The method comprises steps of reading EDID to be analyzed of a display device; defining a situation 1 as the existence of non-standard timing of EDID to be analyzed; defining a situation 2 as the bandwidth of the resolution supported by the display is greater than a maximum bandwidth of a HDMI intermediate device; if the EDID to be analyzed meets the situation 1, after modifying the timing of the EDID to be analyzed into an HDMI standard timing, and then forwarding the modified EDID same to an input source device; if the EDID to be analyzed meets the situation 2, modifying a color depth sampling format and a color format of a resolution greater than a maximum bandwidth of the HDMI intermediate device in the EDID to be analyzed to be within a supported bandwidth range.

  • Patent number: 9457539
    Abstract: Disclosed herein is a seaming element for attachment to an industrial textile. The industrial textile has opposed first and second seamable edge regions, while the seaming element has: i) a first lateral edge; ii) a second lateral edge; iii) a trailing edge; iv) a forward portion comprising a plurality of protruding seaming with successive loops spaced apart by an aperture, and v) a rearward portion continuous with the forward portion, with the rearward portion comprising an upper member and a lower member. The upper and lower members are substantially planar and have mutually opposed inner surfaces, with a portion of each inner surface bonded to the industrial textile at a selected one of the first and second seamable edge regions. At least one of the upper and lower member comprises one or more slits between the first lateral edge and the second lateral edge, with the one or more slits extending from the respective trailing edge in a direction towards the forward portion of the seaming element.
