Abstract: A lined tray may be made by printing on a film an ink comprising from about 15 to about 50 weight percent binder resin selected from ethylene/vinyl acetate copolymers, polyamide polymers, polystyrene polymers, and acrylic polymers. The printed film is laminated to a tray substrate to form a lined tray substrate, so that the outermost ink surface of the printed film is directly adhered to the tray substrate. The lined tray may be formed into a tray.
Abstract: A pitching machine accessory for modifying an existing pitching machine. The existing pitching machine having a pitching apparatus mounted on a sleeve rotatably attached to a shaft and the shaft is connected to a stand. The accessory includes a base rigidly attached to the shaft, a turning means mounted on the base and a gear assembly attached to the turning means. The gear assembly is also attached to the sleeve, whereby the turning means causes the gear assembly to move the sleeve laterally in relation to the stand.
Abstract: A product handling apparatus, components of a product handling apparatus, a method of handling products and a software program for controlling a product handling apparatus. The apparatus includes an induct area, in which products are inducted or fed, either automatically or manually, into the product handling apparatus, an identification area, in which the product configuration, the product type and the product title are identified, a labeling area, in which product labels are printed, applied to each product and verified, and a product sorting area, in which the products are sorted into the individual customer order product collection locations for packaging and shipment to the customer. In the product sorting area, products are diverted by air knife diverter mechanisms, and stackable products are stacked in stacker assemblies. An “endless” main conveyor assembly conveys products from the induct area, through the product handling apparatus, to the product sorting area.
