  • Patent number: 9393754
    Abstract: Reconditioning is performed such that the curvature of the arcuate surface of the crest on the upper corrugating roll is increased as compared before conditioning. Further, reconditioning is performed such that the curvature of the arcuate surface of the crest on the lower corrugating roll is increased as compared before conditioning. In this step, polishing is performed so as to maintain the maximum diameter of the crest on the upper corrugating roll as much as possible. Thereby, since the length of the inclined surface of the corrugating roll connecting between a crest and a trough of the upper and lower corrugating rolls and is reduced, the rate of the increase in the consumption of corrugated mediums of fluted corrugated mediums for double-faced corrugated cardboard sheets shaped by the upper and lower corrugating rolls and after reconditioning can be reduced.

    Abstract: Disclosed is a printing method whereby a glossy image free of running can be printed by an inkjet printer. An inkjet head (14) is caused to scan in the Y direction to print outline portions (32 and 33) on a medium (31). Next, immediately after the printing of the outline portions, a first UV irradiation means (15 or 16) disposed coaxially with the scanning axis of the inkjet head irradiates ink at the outline portions with UV light to harden the ink at the outline portions to prevent running. Next, the inkjet head prints a solid portion (34) between the outline portion (32) and the outline portion (33), and a second UV irradiation means (17) disposed forward in the scanning direction (X direction) of the medium (31) hardens the ink at the solid portion.

  • Patent number: 8728270
    Abstract: A method of preparing water-resistant corrugated paperboard includes providing a corrugated medium treated with a water-proofing agent on both sides thereof, and providing a liner treated with the water-proofing agent on at least an inner surface thereof. The liner and corrugated medium are adhered, with the inner surface of the liner adhered to the corrugated medium. The liner and corrugated medium are adhered with an adhesive composition comprising carrier starch, uncooked pearl starch, borax, a water-proofing resin, a penetration-enhancing additive, and water. The carrier starch comprises cooked starch and uncooked starch. The liner and corrugated medium are treated with the water-proofing agent prior to adhering the liner and corrugated medium. Due to the use of the particular adhesive composition for adhering the liner and the corrugated medium, use of liner treated with the water-proofing agent is possible with acceptable bonding and preservation of Cobb ratings.

  • Patent number: 8715835
    Abstract: A tolerance strip is formed a strip of resilient material with corrugations, the corrugations extending transversely across the full width of the strip, the corrugations defining crests with troughs between adjacent corrugations, a central portion of the corrugations being of substantially uniform height across the strip, portions of the corrugations adjacent each longitudinal edge of the strip decreasing in height towards the edge of the strip. In one form the corrugations are flat longitudinally of the strip at the crests and/or troughs.

  • Publication number: 20140120277
    Abstract: Polymeric formulations which contain aqueous dispersions of acrylic monomers and copolymers and modified polyethylene terephthalate resin are disclosed which are useful as a coating system or treatment for imparting water, oil and grease resistance to underlying cellulosic substrates. The formulations do not contain any fluorochemicals, polyethylene or wax. Moreover, the formulations provide water, oil and grease resistance properties that are an improvement in the art to known coatings and treatments which contain polyethylene and or wax for water, oil and grease resistance. These coatings can also impart improved anti-wicking properties over the existing art. These formulations have interest as they contain components that are permitted to come into direct contact with food products. Therefore, the formulations of the present invention are ideal for use as coatings for paper and paperboard, including paper packaging such as that utilized in food wrappers, food containers, food receptacles, etc.
