    Abstract: A corrugator includes a separation sensor for sensing separation of a corrugated medium and liner of a corrugated paperboard. Sensing the separation, also known as blowout or fluff out, allows the corrugator to be controlled to prevent problems which arise when corrugated paperboard having such a separation continues downstream along the corrugator. Typically, the corrugator is operated to cease downstream movement of the paperboard while a faulty segment which includes the separation is removed and the problem causing the separation is fixed, thereby providing for subsequent production of corrugated paperboard which is properly glued.

  • Publication number: 20130264008
    Abstract: A process of making a multilayered product having an interior honeycomb layer or core. The interior layer is formed by extruding a generally corrugated web of material. The corrugated web is cut and folded to create the honeycomb core. Outer protective skins are applied to exterior surfaces of the interior layer to create a multilayered material which is then cut to size.

  • Publication number: 20130146217
    Abstract: A method for applying texture to an aerodynamic surface is provided. A master plate is provided having a textured surface. A first material is then applied to that surface and cured forming a caul sheet with a negative impression of the master plate textured surface. A surface to which a texture is to be applied is then provided; this may be an aerodynamic surface. Another material, different from the first, is then applied to the aerodynamic surface and the caul sheet is placed on top. The second material is cured and the caul sheet is removed. The second material is adhered to the aerodynamic surface and has a surface that is substantially a negative impression of the caul sheet textured surface and substantially similar to the master plate textured surface.

  • Publication number: 20130139959
    Abstract: The disclosure provides a production method and production line for pre-printed surface paper corrugated boards, and the production method and production line provided by the invention can be used for solving the problem that the existing corrugated board production line and process cannot adapt to the production of pre-printed colorful corrugated boards. In the disclosure, because the bonding mode that surface paper is arranged on a single-face corrugated board is adopted, the direct contact between color-printed paper and a high temperature heating plate of a drying part can be avoided, thereby effectively preventing the damages on the materials, patterns, gloss oil and plastic films of the color-printing paper. The disclosed corrugated board production method and corrugated board production line can effectively adapt to the application requirements of pre-printed colorful paper on the premise of not increasing the cost.

  • Patent number: 8398807
    Abstract: A method of manufacturing a lightweight multilayer heat reflective concrete cure blanket having a moisture-impervious top outer layer, a moisture-impervious bottom outer layer, and the top and bottom layers sealingly connected to each other at the boundaries of the layers to form a moisture-impervious chamber between the first and second layers. The chamber includes at least one bubble type insulative layer therein, and the bottom surface of the blanket comprises a heat reflective material to reflect heat emanating from the concrete when the blanket is placed over the concrete. In a further embodiment, heat reflective material is applied to at least one inner bubble type layer to reflect additional heat which radiates from the concrete through the insulative layer and back towards the concrete.

  • Publication number: 20130017370
    Abstract: A sheet of nonwoven fabric for use in absorbent articles such as disposal diapers, sanitary napkins, wipes, etc., the sheet of nonwoven fabric being suitable for holding high-viscosity excreta such as soft feces. The sheet of nonwoven fabric has, formed in a first surface thereof, a plurality of ridges and grooves which extend in the machine direction. The sheet comprises a first fibrous layer and a second fibrous layer, the first fibrous layer being located on the first-surface side and the second fibrous layer being located on the second-surface side, which is on the reverse side from the first surface. The second fibrous layer comprises fibers having the ability to be crimped, and the first fibrous layer comprises heat-fusible fibers which are not crimped at the crimping initiation temperature of the fibers having the ability to be crimped. In a plan view from the first-surface side, the peripheries of the ridges have a shape which is composed of repeated meanders.

  • Patent number: 8317955
    Abstract: A method for automatically setting the rider roll/glue applicator roll gap for the single face web on a glue machine senses a forward drag that the single face web, operating at corrugator speed, exerts on the glue applicator roll, driven at an underspeed, after bringing the flute tips of the single face web into contact with the glue applicator roll by adjusting the position of the rider roll. Changes in forward drag exerted on the glue applicator roll are monitored and related directly to glue applicator roll drive current to provide a slight compression of the single face web between the rider roll and the glue applicator roll. Preferably, the glue applicator roll uses a regenerative drive and the target drive current command in a feedback control system to cause the gap to be adjusted to achieve the desired slight compression of the web flutes and to maintain the glue applicator roll under speed.
