  • Patent number: 8973267
    Abstract: A method for obtaining an incision in an embossing roller using a hob to provide protuberances that are rounded on top and which improve the quality of the embossed material and reduce the wear of the mechanical components of the embossing units. The shape of the protuberances is obtained by machining the cylindrical surface of the roller placed between the tailstocks of the lathe using a hob that has teeth, the profile thereof being complementary to the cross-section of the protuberances. A portion of the hob with the teeth generates the grooves that define the side faces of the protuberances. The grooves between the teeth of the hob have a profile that is curvilinear in a cross-sectional view. With a double pass at two different inclinations of the surface of the roller, the protuberances of FIGS. 5 and 6 are generated.

  • Patent number: 8689849
    Abstract: A method is described for obtaining a coreless roll of web material with a first portion of web material forming an inner nucleus of the roll and a second portion of web material wound around the outside of the inner nucleus. The two portions can be separated from one another and, for that purpose, an interface or discontinuity is created in at least one turn of the web material forming the roll between the inner nucleus and the second portion of web material. This facilitates the extraction of the inner nucleus from the outer portion of the roll.
