  • Patent number: 11224043
    Abstract: Linerless labels are presented. A label includes a specific pattern or set of patterns of adhesive applied to one side of the label. The adhesive pattern(s) reduces contact between a cutter blade of a printer and the adhesive on the one side of the label. Moreover, the adhesive patterns reduce buildup of adhesive on the cutter blade and reduce buildup at specific locations on the cutter blade. That is, the adhesive patterns more evenly distribute adhesive buildup across the cutter blade. Consequently, the cutter blade can be used for a longer period of time before the cutter blade needs to be cleaned of the adhesive.

  • Publication number: 20140246140
    Abstract: Disclosed herein is a method of preparing a magnetic substrate laminated with a PSA and release liner. The method comprises providing a magnetic substrate laminated with a PSA/release liner structure, removing a release liner from the PSA, and reapplying a release liner such that it is shifted in relation to the magnetic substrate to expose a portion of the PSA. A portion of the release liner may extend past an edge of the magnetic substrate, forming a tab to facilitate later removal of the release liner from the PSA. An attachment may be secured to the exposed PSA to create a customizable promotional item which may be further customized by the later removal of the release liner to allow a customized attachment to be affixed to a portion of the PSA.

  • Patent number: 8801879
    Abstract: A process for production of a multilayer film that comprises a step in which an adhesive layer formed on a temporary base is situated along the lengthwise direction of the temporary base at a prescribed spacing and cut in such a manner that the plurality of sections which are to serve as adhesive films are partitioned from the other sections, and a step in which the adhesive films on the temporary base are moved onto a support film at a prescribed spacing along the lengthwise direction of the support film. The spacing between the adjacent adhesive films on the temporary base is different from the spacing between the adjacent adhesive films on the support film.

    Abstract: A piezoelectric MEMS microphone comprising a multi-layer sensor that includes at least one piezoelectric layer between two electrode layers, with the sensor being dimensioned such that it provides a near maximized ratio of output energy to sensor area, as determined by an optimization parameter that accounts for input pressure, bandwidth, and characteristics of the piezoelectric and electrode materials. The sensor can be formed from single or stacked cantilevered beams separated from each other by a small gap, or can be a stress-relieved diaphragm that is formed by deposition onto a silicon substrate, with the diaphragm then being stress relieved by substantial detachment of the diaphragm from the substrate, and then followed by reattachment of the now stress relieved diaphragm.
