  • Publication number: 20190179614
    Abstract: Described are techniques for request processing. A request may be received from a requester for first data to be returned to the requester. The request may be in accordance with an application programming interface. The first data may include a plurality of objects each including a value for a first property. The request may include a parameter of the application programming interface indicating to return the plurality of objects sorted in accordance with natural ordering based on the first property of each of the plurality of objects. The natural ordering may be performed as the default ordering. With natural ordering, one or more consecutive digits in a string are treated as a single numeric value rather than individual characters. First processing may be performed to service the request and obtain the first data. A response, including the first data, may be generated in accordance with the first processing.

  • Publication number: 20180002053
    Abstract: A sleeve labeling machine includes a center column, a transmission device, and a cutter device. The center column can unfold the shrink film, and a transmission device will carry the shrink film and let the shrink film sleeve on the center column. Then, the cutter device will cut the shrink film, and the transmission device will keep pulling each cut shrink film to cover the surface of a bottle or a can. Finally, the transmission device will convoy bottles or cans to the next device, and let the shrink film combine with the bottle or the can to complete the bottle or can sleeve labeling process.

  • Publication number: 20170166339
    Abstract: This invention relates to a shrink wrap machine, which includes a central column and a shrink film synchronous transmission equipment. Said central column is provided with a first column and a second column which are configured to mutual suspended separation for removing the connection between the first column and the second column so that the shrink wrap machine can be expand to fit onto the desired diameter range of bottles or cans and increase the application of the shrink-film. When the shrink-film is opened by the first column of the center column, the shrink-film will be continuously transport by the label feeding rollers and the label pulling rollers of said shrink film synchronous transmission equipment. After the shrink-film is cut by the cutter equipment, a piece of the shrink-film will be pulled down by the label pulling rollers and the second guide pulleys and the shrink-film will be wrapped on the surface of the bottles or cans.
