  • Publication number: 20190183296
    Abstract: Embodiments of dispensers for dispensing wet wipes are disclosed herein. An exemplary dispenser includes a container, a plurality of wipes, and a wipes dispensing nozzle. The wipes dispensing nozzle has a first housing member and a second housing member that are movable between a first position and a second position. In the first position, the wipes dispensing nozzle has an opening that has a first diameter. In the second position, the nozzle has an opening that has a second diameter that is smaller than the first diameter. When the nozzle is in the first position, a lead wipe of the plurality of wipes may be threaded through the wipes dispensing nozzle. In the first position, the wipes dispensing nozzle does not exert sufficient frictional force against a trailing wipe to cause the lead wipe to separate from the trailing wipe along a perforation line. In the second position, the wipes nozzle is in a closed dispensing position.

  • Publication number: 20070210542
    Abstract: An apparatus for moving a pallet having a wheeled frame supporting a lift plate. The lift plate is raised by inflation of bladders disposed beneath the lift plate and lowered by deflation of the bladders. A fluid supply system provides pressurized gas for bladder inflation. Gas operated brakes resist apparatus movement when engaged. A method of moving a pallet in which a wheeled lift plate is positioned between a surface and a pallet, bladders disposed beneath the lift plate are inflated to raise the lift plate and thereby raise the pallet off of the surface, the raised lift plate supporting the pallet is rolled to a desired location, and the lift plate is lowered by deflating the bladders until the pallet rests on the surface at the desired location. A method of delivering palletized beverages is also disclosed.

  • Patent number: 7059494
    Abstract: A multicarton pack which can be easily separated into individual cartons, without destroying the integrity of any of the cartons in the pack. Cartons may have an improved dispenser at one end of the carton, which preserves the integrity of the carton when the carton is opened by permitting a bottom end flap attached to the bottom panel to remain in place and also a portion of each side end flap that is adjacent to the bottom end flap. The dispenser may also provide a safety net for the first container that is automatically dispensed when the carton is opened. This is achieved by a novel method of providing a pattern of cuts in adjoining side walls of the cartons and for the cartons to be glued together by gluing the cuts on one of the adjoining side walls. The location of glue spots and their size and number are sufficient to maintain the pack together but yet allow the cartons to be separated without destroying the integrity of the panels glued together.

  • Patent number: 7048817
    Abstract: A method of simultaneously making a plurality of composite cartons from two or more individual cartons on a common assembly surface. A plurality of first singular cartons is positioned in a predetermined array on an assembly surface. Adhesive is positioned at one or more locations on each first singular carton. A plurality of second singular cartons is positioned in a predetermined array adjacent to the array of first singular cartons on the assembly surface such that the adhesive bonds each first carton to a corresponding second carton. The method steps may be repeated. A detector may be used to detect the presence or absence of adhesive. A composite carton comprising three or more individual cartons may be constructed. The individual cartons in the composite cartons may be separable from each other. An object may be positioned between each of the bonded individual cartons in the composite cartons.
