Assembling Of Distinct Members Patents (Class 493/210)
  • Patent number: 9387957
    Abstract: Trash bags may be formed to include first and second sidewalls joined along a first side edge, an opposite second side edge, and a closed bottom edge to form an outer bag. A second inner bag may be inserted within the first bag to form a “bag-in-a-bag” type configuration in which the inner bag is bonded to the outer bag along side seals. When the outer and inner bags are formed primarily from LLDPE thermoplastic resin using a blown film process, the inventors have surprisingly found that such configurations provide increased and unexpected strength properties while using less material.

  • Patent number: 9357766
    Abstract: A perfusion apparatus including a perfusion circuit that perfuses an organ or tissue has a compartment that supports an organ or tissue during perfusion, an internal cover, and an external cover that closes the apparatus. A wall portion may extend substantially perpendicularly between the internal cover and the external cover to define a document compartment between the internal cover, the external cover and the wall portion. A tamper evident seal will not permit the external cover to open without creating a record of whether the external cover has been opened after the tamper evident seal has been activated.

  • Patent number: 9315319
    Abstract: Trash bags may be formed to include first and second sidewalls joined along a first side edge, an opposite second side edge, and a closed bottom edge to form an outer bag. A second inner bag may be inserted within the first bag to form a “bag-in-a-bag” type configuration in which the inner bag is bonded to the outer bag along side seals by a continuous process. The bags may also be bonded together along the hem and the draw tape. When the side seals of the inner bag and the outer bag are sealed together by a continuous rather than a reciprocating process, the inventors have surprisingly found that such seals require carefully controlled process conditions to prevent inadequate seals.

  • Patent number: 9136286
    Abstract: It is an object to provide a display panel and an electronic book which are manufactured with high yield and have high reliability. A display panel is provided which includes, a flexible display portion in which a scan line and a signal line intersect with each other over a substrate, a signal line driver circuit for outputting a first signal to the signal line adjacent to a first side of the flexible display portion over the substrate, and a scan line driver circuit for outputting a second signal to the scan line adjacent to a second side of the flexible display portion. In the display panel, the mechanical strength of a portion provided with the signal line driver circuit or the scan line driver circuit is improved as compared to the mechanical strength of other than the portion.

  • Patent number: 9039590
    Abstract: Systems, devices, and methods are described for providing a bag having an internally reinforced header. A reinforcing material is combined with a bag material to provide strength to the reinforced header. The reinforcing material and the bag material are aligned during manufacturing such that the reinforcing material is positioned in a header area of a bag formed by folding the bag material. A seal that passes through both the reinforcing material and the bag material retains the reinforcing material within the bag header. A bag handle may then be punched into the header through the bag material and the reinforcing material.

    Abstract: A method for applying a lubricant to a pressure relief valve during the process of applying the pressure relief valve to packaging. The method includes temporarily separating layers of the valve with a vacuum applicator when the lubricant is applied. A pressurized nozzle sprays or atomizes the lubricant into the valve opening. Graphite suspended in liquid silicone is used as the lubricant; it is recirculated in a reservoir to keep the graphite in suspension. Optical sensors check for valves before the entrance to, and after exit from, the vacuum applicator.

    Abstract: The invention relates to a method for temporarily increasing the resistance to vertical compression of a bag for transporting and holding liquids and quasi-liquids, intended for a bag having the general shape of a cube and including receptacles of each of the corners thereof. The method consists in choosing four inflatable cushioning pouches for each bag, said pouches being elongate and having length, width and extension dimensions corresponding to the length, width and internal volume of the receptacles in the bag. Next, the four cushioning pouches are introduced into the four receptacles and are subsequently inflated, thereby trapping same in a vertical position in which they can resist compression along the vertical axis thereof. The resulting bag is characterized in that the receptacles in the four corners of the bag are each provided internally with a cushioning pouch which is optionally rigidly secured to the bag.

    Abstract: When sheets (1, 2) with different sizes are processed to a mail item, sheets (1, 2) with different sizes in conveying direction are supplied along first and second conveyor tracks, gathered into a stack and then folded. The folding of the stacked set (7) takes place with at least one predetermined folding length (a). In response to a difference between the folding length (a) and the size of the sheet (2) of the second size, which is within a predetermined range, the conveyor tracks (5, 6) are controlled by the control structure (9) for combining at least the sheets (1, 2) with leading edges (10, 11) at a mutual distance in the conveying direction (3) and with trailing edges (12, 13) at a mutual distance in the conveying direction (3) to form the set (7). From the combining until the folding, the sheets (1, 2) are mutually fixed and during folding, at least one fold (14) is provided in the sheets (1, 2).

  • Publication number: 20130192712
    Abstract: The flexible bag includes overlaying first and second sidewalls that provide an internal volume that can be accessed via an opening. To evacuate air from the internal volume after the open top edge has been closed, the bag includes a one-way valve element attached to the first sidewall. The bag is configured to prevent objects from clogging the valve element during evacuation. In one embodiment, the bag may include a plurality of ridges formed along the inner surface of at least one sidewall that can maintain separation of the sidewalls and contents from the valve element. In another aspect, the valve element is beneficially located at a top corner of the bag where the valve element is spaced apart from those locations in the bag where contents are likely to collect.

  • Patent number: 8414465
    Abstract: Provided is a bag-making machine for manufacturing a plastic bag with a body part and side gusset parts, in which when a bag having a long height is manufactured, it is not required to use a body member with a long width. Side gusset members (14) are folded in two and fed by a side gusset member supply mechanism (16). The side gusset members (14) are disposed in the longitudinal direction of a body member (11) so as to face each other at spaces therebetween in the lateral direction of the body member (11). Each of the side gusset members (14) is divided into predetermined lengths, and the divided side gusset members (14) are disposed at spaces therebetween in the longitudinal direction of the body member (11). The body member (11) and the side gusset members (14) are so heat-sealed by a vertical sealing device (26) in the longitudinal direction of the body member (11) as to form vertical seal parts (27).
