  • Publication number: 20190002208
    Abstract: Flight and indexing assemblies for automated packaging systems provide better product spacing for faster and more reliable automation. In an example, a plurality of flights may include a plate- or sheet-like body with a perpendicular flange extending from an upper portion of the flight. Two adjacent flanges contain a pouch or other product to be packaged in a case. A flange constrains an upper portion of each pouch to a confined and predetermined area, thereby aiding grippers of an end-of-arm tool to grasp the pouches. A flight and product indexing assembly is configured to control spacing between adjacent flights, and to position pouches constrained between adjacent flights, so that flights position product at predetermined locations for gripping by the end-of-arm tool.

  • Patent number: 10146812
    Abstract: Disclosed are methods, apparatus, systems, and computer readable storage media for providing a reference to a content object in a user interface using an on-demand database service. A computing device can receive data regarding identification of a content object, where the content object is stored in a data repository external to the on-demand database service. The data regarding the content object can be stored in a persistent object in a database of the on-demand database service. A reference can be provided representing the persistent object to a display device operable to display the reference in a user interface when the display device accesses the on-demand database service. One or more graphical representations can be exposed regarding the content object for display in the user interface by the display device, where the exposed graphical representations depend at least in part on the data repository.

  • Publication number: 20180342818
    Abstract: A wedge connector system for connecting first and second elongate electrical conductors includes a C-shaped sleeve member, a wedge member, and an insert member. The sleeve member defines a sleeve cavity and opposed first and second sleeve channels on either side of the sleeve cavity. The wedge member includes a wedge body having first and second opposed wedge side walls. The insert member is configured to be selectively mounted in the first sleeve channel and defines an insert member channel to receive the first conductor when the insert member is mounted in the first sleeve channel. The sleeve member and the wedge member are configured to capture the first and second conductors such that: the first conductor is received in the insert member channel and captured between the sleeve member and the first wedge side wall; and the second conductor is captured between the sleeve member and the second wedge side wall.

  • Publication number: 20180305277
    Abstract: Processes and apparatuses for producing para-xylenes are provided. The processes comprises providing a hydrocarbon stream comprising C7+ hydrocarbons. The hydrocarbon stream is separated to provide a C8 aromatics stream and an ortho-xylene rich stream. The C8 aromatics stream is passed to a para-xylene separation unit for separating para-xylene to provide a para-xylene stream and a raffinate stream. At least a portion of the raffinate stream is passed to a first isomerization unit to provide a first isomerization effluent, wherein the first isomerization effluent is produced in the presence of an ethylbenzene (EB) isomerization catalyst. At least a portion of the ortho-xylene rich stream is contacted with an isomerization catalyst in a second isomerization unit in liquid phase at isomerization conditions in substantial absence of hydrogen to produce a second isomerization effluent.
