    Abstract: An apparatus, method and system for applying a liquid coating on an elongated work piece. One example is an arrow shaft. The apparatus comprises a body with a wiper on or in the body. A mounting interface allows the body to be mounted on a support, which in one example is the top of a can holding the liquid to be applied. An excess amount of liquid is applied to the work piece (e.g. by dipping an end or other application of the liquid to a location along the work piece, and the work piece is then moved past the wiper such that the wiper wipes the liquid on the work piece but gathers excess liquid for substantially even coating of the liquid along the work piece.

Further, the present invention also provides an antireflection structure formed by that method. In the formation method, a base layer and particles placed thereon are subjected to an etching process. The particles on the base layer serve as an etching mask in the process, and hence they are more durable against etching than the base layer. The etching rate ratio of the base layer to the particles is more than 1 but not more than 5. The etching process is stopped before the particles disappear. It is also possible to produce an antireflection structure by nanoimprinting method employing a stamper.

The stopping mechanism beyond the hopper stops the movement of the sheet of insulation by deactivating the conveyor until the sheet with the adhesive applied thereon is removed.

  • Patent number: 5318629
    Abstract: An apparatus is provided for spreading a material on an object. The apparatus includes a continuously moving conveyor for moving the object in a downstream direction, and a dispenser for applying the material to the object. The apparatus also includes a carriage located above the conveyor, and a spreader coupled to the carriage for engaging the material applied to the object by the dispenser to spread the material on the object. The apparatus further includes a mechanism for moving the carriage in the downstream direction over the continuously moving object as the spreader engages the material, and another mechanism for providing movement of the spreader relative to the carriage from an first position in which the spreader engages the material to a second position in which the spreader disengages the material.

  • Patent number: 5108531
    Abstract: A method of highly accurate printing using a web offset press, particularly suited for stereographic printing. Consistent reproductions of a composite image are produced on a paper web, and registry between the image and an embossed screen is maintained, by preshrinking (e.g., reducing the moisture content of) the paper prior to printing the composite image on the paper web. Preshrinking the paper prevents the subsequent ink drying operation from causing shrinkage of the paper and concomitant variations in the image, permitting inline formation of a screen in accurate registry with the image.

  • Patent number: 5043187
    Abstract: A method whereby a coating layer is formed on an outer surface of a cylindrical substrate by dipping the cylindrical substrate in a coating solution containing dissolved material, and vertically removing the cylindrical substrate from the coating solution. The lower end portion of the substrate which has a thick portion as a sag formed by a run of the coating solution on the outer surface of the substrate is brought into contact with a tapered outer surface of a member having said tapered outer surface immediately after the substrate is removed from the coating solution. Thus, the thick portion is transferred from the lower end of the substrate to the tapered surface. Then, a solvent of the dissolved material is sprayed to an inner wall surface of the substrate while a gap is formed between the lower end of the substrate and the tapered surface, thereby removing the material from a lower end face and the inner wall surface of the substrate.

  • Patent number: 4871588
    Abstract: A method of coating embossed panels having embossed panel portions which are offset in generally parallel planes. A liquid accent coating is applied to the panels as they are moved along a predetermined path. A roll is reverse rotated to wipe liquid coating from the high points of the embossed panel surfaces, creating a high level of contrast with the relief portions where a greater amount of coating remains. The rolls do not wipe the steps between panel portions so that the steps are more heavily coated, to create a dark shadow line. Doctor blades strip coating from the roll, except in those portions that do not contact the panel steps. Vacuum removes excess coating from the stepped areas of the panels and also from those portions of the rolls not contacted by the doctor blades. Apparatus for carrying out the method is also disclosed.

    Abstract: A synthetic brick wall facing on an existing wall is made by applying to the degreased wall an aqueous acrylic resin emulsion which when dry is then coated with an aqueous creamy mixture of portand cement, lime and perlite. Horizontal scoring of the cementitious wall surface to simulate bricks is accomplished by nailing to the wall two vertical guides having slots, inserting a straight member into selected slots and scoring horizontally along the upper edge of the straight member. The vertical guide comprises two sections of identical construction which nest in one another and are detachably connected by a bolt extending through pre-formed holes.

  • Patent number: 4623572
    Abstract: A method and apparatus for the production of napped surfaces that are textured lightly and irregularly. The surface of a substrate is coated with an adhesive and then covered with short textile fibers to form a layer of nap. After the adhesive hardens, the nap layer is subjected to mechanical deformation by permitting a plurality of balls made of a resilient material to bounce on the layer. The apparatus includes a panel of backing material support for the substrate, such as a panel of material which is to be treated and which already has a nap layer on its surface. Below the support is disposed a vibrator mechanism which causes the support together with the panel of material disposed thereon to vibrate. Above the support and the panel of material disposed thereon, there is a treatment chamber having lateral partitions and an impact ceiling. Within the treatment chamber there is a plurality of balls made of a resilient material.
