  • Publication number: 20140100098
    Abstract: A packaging material for manufacturing of carton or paperboard based packaging containers by fold-forming is disclosed. The packaging material is obtainable by: providing, in connection with one station, a first part of one or more crease line(s) and a first mark on a moving web of a paperboard or carton based packaging material providing, in connection with a second station, at least a second part of the one or more crease line(s) as well as a second mark, wherein the first and the second mark together form a detectable mark.

  • Patent number: 8334979
    Abstract: A method and/or an apparatus for controlling the register between print and three-dimensional structures, such as creases in the forming of a package, and a method and/or the apparatus for controlling a unit for repeated cutting-out or perforation of a material web from which the packages are formed. In the control, a focused, high intensive light beam, such as a laser line, is laid in a bisecting direction to relevant creases. The position of the crease or the creases is determined by sensing of a deflection of the projected laser line. Diffuse light from the laser line may be used in order to register the position of a register marking. If the difference between the register marking and crease differs more than a predetermined value, the creasing tool and/or printing press is automatically adjusted.

  • Patent number: 8099933
    Abstract: A process of manufacturing sealed packages containing a pourable food product from a web packaging material moving along a predetermined path involves providing a recurring pattern of printed register marks on the web packaging material, applying a recurring pattern of bend or fold lines on the web packaging material as a function of the detected position of the printed register marks, generating new references, distinct from the bend or fold lines, on the web packaging material in a synchronized way with the application of the recurring pattern of bend or fold lines; and performing one or more subsequent operations on the web packaging material based on a synchronization pulse created by detection of the new references.

  • Patent number: 6398670
    Abstract: A golf training and game system is situated in a golf playing facility with tee and target areas. At each target area an overview video camera captures an image of the target area when a golf ball is hit from a tee. A target measuring system performs image improvement methods on the captured image, detects possible balls, and calculates coarse real coordinates for the possible balls. A memory stores real coordinates for previously-identified balls. Coordinates for possible balls and identified balls are compared to determine new balls to be identified. New ball coordinates are used to position, zoom and focus a zoom video camera and capture a fine image. The target measuring system performs image improvement methods and pattern recognition on the fine image to identify the new balls and get fine real coordinates. Information sent to a tee terminal gives feedback to the players.

  • Patent number: 6345130
    Abstract: The present invention relates to an arrangement and a method for ensuring quality during scanning/copying of images/documents. The method includes the steps of feeding in the page(s) that are to be scanned/copied. Thereafter, a first measurement of outer characteristics is performed with respect to skew, double-feeding/overlapping, deviating shape, and geometric deformation for calculating a first quality measure Q1. Thereafter, the first quality measure Q1 is compared with a predetermined first quality limit Q+1. If Q1≧Q+1, then an automatic adjustment is performed in the form of a geometric transformation in order to improve the first quality measure Q1. Thereafter, the contents of the page are analyzed with respect to structure and objects in order to calculate a second quality measure Q2, which is compared with a predetermined second quality limit Q+2. If Q2≧Q+2, then image improvement methods are performed on each identified object.

  • Patent number: 5987423
    Abstract: An object oriented programming (OOP) framework includes an Order Management (OM) mechanism that tracks sales orders received and matches them to warehouse inventory, a Sales Order (SA) mechanism that processes sales orders, and a Purchase Order (PU) mechanism that processes purchase orders. The OM mechanism comprises a category of OOP classes that provide the primary interface between the framework classes and underlying business objects that provide accounting functions and warehouse management interfaces, and the SA and PU mechanisms comprise respective categories of OOP classes that keep track of sales orders received and purchase orders issued.

  • Patent number: 5936860
    Abstract: An object oriented framework provides a set of objects that perform warehouse control functioning and that permit a framework user to add extensions for specific processing features, thereby producing a warehouse control application program for managing the warehouse distribution system of a company. The framework includes a Product category of classes that contains product information for inventory processing, a Posting Combinations category of classes that define valid posting combinations for the general ledger, a Journals category of classes that create, process, validate, and post general ledger journals, a Bank Transactions category of classes that process bank statements, a Bank Statements and Reconciliation category of classes that reconcile bank statements with bank accounts, and a Closing category of classes that validate and close the current accounting period. These classes provide the base framework upon which an account management application program is developed by the framework user.
