  • Patent number: 10586139
    Abstract: A method for producing a portable data carrier by means of a continuous production method, in particular a roll-to-roll method, includes the step of processing at least one foil in the form of roll goods. The unrolled foil is coated with an adhesive at least partially on at least one side. Subsequently, the foil is scored along at least one fold edge on at least one side of the foil. The foil is then folded along the scored fold edge in exact register and bonded. For this purpose the foil is folded in the direction of the side that is coated with adhesive, wherein the side coated with adhesive is arranged on the opposite side of the foil which has at least one scored fold edge, along which the folding is effected. Finally, data carriers are punched out in exact register from the at least one folded and bonded foil.

  • Patent number: 9662859
    Abstract: A roll of composite edge trimming tape made by adhering masking tape to filament-bearing adhesive tape. The filament-bearing adhesive tape is made from a double-coated tape having a substrate layer and two adhesive layers. A filament is placed along the length of the masking tape in contact with one of the adhesive layers at equal distances from the edges of the tape. The tape is then folded so that the portions of the tape on either side of the filament are bonded together by the adhesive layer, and the tape surrounds the filament at one end of the filament-bearing adhesive tape. The composite edge trimming tape is formed by bringing the adhesive side of the masking tape in contact with an adhesive surface of the filament-bearing adhesive tape so one longitudinal edge of the masking tape is proximate to the portion of the filament-bearing adhesive tape containing the filament.

  • Publication number: 20130108828
    Abstract: The invention relates to an aircraft protection device for protecting potentially exposed aircraft structures from direct impacts and a method of protecting an exposed edge of an aircraft component. The method includes the steps of winding filament around a foam core to create an impact protection device. A portion of the filament winding and foam core is removed from the impact protection device to create a receiving section whereby the receiving section is configured to correspond to and receive the exposed edge of the aircraft component. The impact protection device is secured to the exposed edge of the aircraft component such that the exposed edge is received in the receiving portion of the impact protection device.

  • Patent number: 8430375
    Abstract: A foam filling member that can hold a foam sheet in a looped shape stably, without increasing the number of components, to provide improved vibration suppression and sound insulation. The strip-like foam sheet is formed in a looped shape by bending round it, so that both end portions of the foam sheet are overlapped with each other in a thickness direction thereof to form an overlapped portion therein. Then, insertion shafts of a clip are inserted through the overlapped portion, so that the overlapped portion is held in sandwich relation between a base portion and a head portion to form a foam filling member. Then, a supporting portion of the fixing portion of the clip is inserted in a fixing hole of an inner panel and fixed to the inner panel.
