  • Patent number: 8956493
    Abstract: A method of manufacturing a leg and flap elastics composite for use in an absorbent article includes joining a leg elastic member to a web moving in a machine direction. A flap elastic member is joined to the web and spaced from the leg elastic member. The web is fed to a chopper assembly wherein portions of the leg and flap elastic members are rendered less elastic at spaced-apart intervals to define deadened portions of the leg and flap elastic members.

    Abstract: A perforated composite panel comprises a substrate and an applied layer, the substrate having a first surface and an opposite second surface. A method of forming the perforated composite panel comprises the steps of: i. cutting a plurality of first holes in the substrate; ii. positioning the applied layer against the substrate such that a surface of the applied layer overlays the first surface of the substrate to thereby form the composite panel; iii. locating the composite panel in a fixture, the fixture having one or more datum features; iv. determining the location and axis direction for each of the first holes in the substrate, relative to the or each datum feature; and v. cutting a plurality of second holes in the applied layer, each of the plurality of second holes being coincident and coaxial with a corresponding one of the plurality of first holes.

  • Patent number: 8932418
    Abstract: The invention relates to a method of producing an overlapping hybrid connection between two or more components. A hybrid connection in the meaning of the invention is characterized by adhesively bonding and producing mechanical spot joint connections between two joining parts, the adhesive layer being arranged in the region of the mechanical joint connections. The method according to the invention is carried out in the following method steps: purposefully removing material from one or more of the components or purposefully applying material to one or more of the components in the region of the lap joint to be produced to form one or more projections, applying adhesive to one or more of the components in the region of the lap joint to be produced, overlapping the components, pressing the components together in the region of the lap joint to press the projections against the overlapping component(s) and producing one or more mechanical spot joint connections on the projections in the overlap region.
