  • Patent number: 10000357
    Abstract: A passive tensioning system is disclosed for composite material that is dispensed by a composite placement machine. A spool is mounted on a spool shaft and material on the spool is pulled from the spool and applied to a surface. The tensioning system has a drag brake on the spool shaft and a drag brake control for the drag brake. A dancer roll is mounted on a linear slide having a spring force and a slide control is provided for the linear slide. A control system continually varies the drag brake control and the slide control to control the tension of the composite material based on the instantaneous operating characteristics of the composite placement machine.

  • Publication number: 20160264348
    Abstract: Present embodiments generally related to a single-serve beverage cartridge for use with a beverage machine. In some embodiments, the cartridge includes a cup, a lid, and a beverage component disposed in the cup. The beverage component can include a soluble beverage component and a non-soluble beverage component. In certain instances, the beverage component in the beverage cartridge can include a first layer of non-soluble beverage component and a second layer of soluble beverage component. In other instances, the beverage component can include a first layer of soluble beverage component and a second layer of non-soluble beverage component. In other instances, the beverage component can include a first layer of non-soluble beverage component, a second layer of soluble beverage component, and a third layer of non-soluble beverage component. In other instances, the beverage component can include a mixture of soluble beverage component and non-soluble beverage component.
