  • Patent number: 9751655
    Abstract: A vessel has an inner flap and an outer flap that fold across a base of the vessel to form a cover. The inner flap includes a dam tab along the outer edge of the inner flap. When the inner flap is folded down, the free edge of this tab contacts the wall of the vessel and bends upward forming a “folded edge” dam. This folded edge dam can either be one segment or be made of two or more segments divided by one or more V-shaped cuts to allow each segment to fold down and fit together seamlessly. A restrictive channel is formed by the outer and inner flaps together with the “folded edge” dam, which is present in-between the outer and inner flaps.

  • Patent number: 8725755
    Abstract: Methods and apparatus include presenting an initial set of names to a user. The user selects a set of names from those presented. An Interactive Evolutionary Algorithm (IEA) extracts features of each selected name from a database of names and features to form a feature set. The IEA forms a set of match features that are chosen from the feature set according to a priority function and/or weighting of the features, either of which may vary in succeeding iterations. The IEA searches the database to obtain a candidate set of names, where each name has features matching the match features. One or more names is chosen from the candidate set and added into a presentation set of names. The IEA may repeat the formation of the match features, candidate set, and selection of one or more names from the candidate set until the new presentation set is complete.

    Abstract: A forming device and method for use in a packaging machine of the type where packages are produced from a tube. The forming device comprises two opposing sealing elements between which the tube is arranged to be flat-laid and squeezed to heat the thermoplastic and obtain a first transverse seal of the tube. It further comprises two volume control elements. The forming device is characterized in that it is arranged to displace the first transverse seal off-center in relation a longitudinal axis of the first portion of the tube in a displacement direction essentially perpendicular to the first transverse seal to enable later shaping of a corresponding final package with a wall arranged with a predetermined angle of inclination in relation to the displacement direction. The invention also relates to a machine, a process and a packaging laminate.

In the score line forming step, the score lines are formed in a manner causing grooves to be produced on the back side of each score line forming area, along the score lines, through plastic deformation. The blank therefore does not undergo tensile stress pulling on the blank to either side of each groove, and thus, does not undergo warping as a whole. The blank thus retains its sheet shape and can be steadily supplied to a packaging machine.

  • Publication number: 20110210035
    Abstract: Dispensing containers are taught which are strengthened by applying tape at certain locations of the containers. A dispensing container for housing and sequentially dispensing packets is taught. Also taught are the carton blanks for erecting the respective containers. A length of packets created by severably attaching sequential packets along respective tear lines is rolled or folded then positioned within the container for later dispensing. Child-resistance features that impede removal of each packet include routing the length of packets between opposing panels or between opposing panels and an edge of folded panels that exert a lateral pressure on the packets. In some embodiments the panels include apertures that catch or otherwise engage a feature of a packet, such as a blister, to further impede removal of each packet. To further impede removal of a packet, access notches that allow the user to grasp the packet are narrowly constructed.
