  • Patent number: 10684595
    Abstract: Systems, methods, and user interfaces for controlling a bulk material baling system are provided. One embodiment of the invention relates to a user interface for controlling components of a tying system, providing a wire odometer that determines and displays real-time information on the use of consumables by the tying system, such as an amount of remaining wire. Embodiments of the wire odometer simultaneously monitor and display an amount of remaining wire on a wire carrier, and a corresponding number of straps remaining to be tied by the current wire carrier. Further embodiments of the user interface provide monitoring data and remaining-use expectancy indicators for individual system components. Additional embodiments of the user interface are configured to control various features of components of a combination tying system that straps bailed material with alternate tying heads, providing both wire strapping and plastic strapping capabilities.

  • Patent number: 10684846
    Abstract: Forward and/or backward compatibility between an invoking program and the invoked program can be maintained by using compatibility indicators and/or annotations to configuration settings that specify the desired behavior of the invoked program. Compatibility indicators and/or annotations can be used to override default behavior to ensure compatibility between a version of a program and a version or revision of a dependency of the program. Annotations can be made to configuration settings or to initialization programs and/or files. Configuration and/or initialization settings for the program can be annotated to indicate when default behavior of the dependency is to be overridden to provide alternate behavior. Configuration settings for the program can be annotated to indicate when future revisions to the dependency are to be applied.

  • Publication number: 20200173114
    Abstract: The present invention discloses tissue products, specifically rolled bath tissue products, having a three-dimensional surface topography comprising substantially continuous machine direction (MD) oriented elements, discrete cross-machine direction (CD) oriented elements and discrete MD oriented valleys having valley sidewalls formed by the MD oriented elements and valley endwalls formed by the CD oriented elements. The discrete valleys generally have a length greater than about 10.0 mm. The CD oriented elements comprise a relatively small percentage of the tissue surface area, such as less than about 15 percent, yet the tissue products display good anti-nesting properties when spirally wound into rolls, such as a Roll Structure greater than about 0.75.

  • Publication number: 20200173110
    Abstract: The present invention discloses a papermaking fabric having a both machine direction (MD) and cross-machine direction (CD) oriented protuberances for molding and structuring a nascent paper web, particularly tissue paper webs. The MD orientated protuberances are spaced apart from one another in the fabric cross-machine direction and may be continuous and parallel to one another. The CD orientated protuberances are preferably discrete and comprise less than about 15 percent of the web contacting surface of the fabric. In certain instances the MD orientated protuberances are formed from interwoven filaments and the CD orientated protuberances are nonwoven and may be applied to the woven fabric substrate by printing.

  • Publication number: 20200168217
    Abstract: Assembled voice interaction techniques are leveraged in a digital medium environment. During a voice interaction with a voice assistant platform, user portions and voice assistant portions of a voice interaction with a voice assistant platform are received and stored in a sequential order. The user portions of the voice interaction, for example, may correspond to audio data or text data indicative of speech included as part of a request to the voice assistant platform. In contrast, the voice assistant portions of the voice interaction may correspond to output content returned by the voice assistant platform for output as part of a response to the request. An assembled voice interaction file is assembled by interleaving the stored user portions of the voice interaction with the stored voice assistant portions of the voice interaction based on the sequential order.
