DATE OF PATENT: JULY 18, 2000
Abstract: A method and apparatus are provided to sequentially capture
the lead bottle from a row of bottles in a multi-pocketed bottle indexing
wheel means, and sequentially rotate and push pocketed bottles from said index
wheel means to an inclined tray means, automatically collecting said bottles
in a gravity compressed hexagonal pattern within said inclined traying means.
Inclined traying means includes a means for trayed bottle removal.
AND APPARATUS FOR REMOVING THE PRINTED LAYER OF LABELS FROM SEMIRIGID CONTAINERS
Date of Patent: Jul. 29, 1997
Abstract: An apparatus and method are provided for delaminating the top printed layer
from a three layer paper label adhesively bonded to a semi-rigid plastic or
metal container. An underlying pulp layer of the three layer paper is selectively
removed leaving only a smooth adhesive layer of the paper label and thereby
providing a smooth unprinted surface for relabeling. An apparatus and method
are also provided for simultaneously delaminating both the top printed layer
and the bottom adhesive layer of a two layer label bonded to a semi-rigid
FOR CLEAN REMOVING LABELS FROM CONTAINERS
Date of Patent: Oct. 6, 1992
Abstract: An apparatus and a method is provided for removing an adhesive
backed label from a cylindrical container and includes the steps of positioning
a tilted blade at an attack angle which forces the blade behind the label
between the adhesive and the cylindrical container and the speed of descent
of the blade and the rotational speed of the container is adjusted so as to
peel the label from the container with the adhesive side out as an integral
FOR DECOMPOSING COMPRESSED TABLETS
Patent Number: 5,148,995
of Patent: Sep. 22, 1992
Abstract: Apparatus for decomposing hard compressed tablets into powder
includes a housing having a hopper for receiving the tablets therein and a
discharge chute in the housing for discharging the decomposed powdered tablets
directly into a patient’s cup. The housing is further provided with a cylindrical
aperture therethrough which is adapted to receive an imperforate rotor in
the cylindrical aperture. The imperforate rotor is provided with helical blades
which protrude from said imperforate rotor means for decomposing said hard
compressed tablets by a slicing and cutting action which controls the size
of the powder by the height of the slicing blades.
FEEDER FOR ENVELOPE FEEDING APPARATUS
Patent Number: 4,884,793
of Patent: Dec. 5, 1989
Abstract: Apparatus for stripping a single envelope from a stack of envelopes
without misfeeding or double feeding is provided. The apparatus includes a
picker blade which is articulated by a drive to impart a plurality of motions
to the leading edge of an envelope after the picker blade has been engaged
under the flap of an envelope to be separated from a stack of envelopes in
a magazine. The novel stripping action of the picker blade ensures that the
leading edge only of the envelope to be fed from the magazine is first stripped
and separated from the stack of envelopes and directed past a restrainer which
prevents the stack of envelopes adjacent the envelope to be fed from being
moved in a feed direction.
SPEED ENVELOPE FEEDING APPARATUS
Patent Number: 4,846,455
Date of Patent: Jul. 11, 1989
Abstract: A high speed envelope feeder is provided with a pair of pinch
rollers for extracting an envelope from a stack of closed envelopes in a magazine.
The flap of a closed envelope is opened by raising a cam surface under the
flap to position the flap between a fixed pinch roll and a movable pinch roll.
The movable pinch roll is articulated to grasp the flap between the pinch
rolls. The flap is pulled to extract the envelope from the magazine and is
subsequently pushed by the pinch rolls into the transport device.>
FOR PRODUCING BACTERIA FREE DRINKING WATER
Patent Number: 4,441,996
Date of Patent: Apr. 10, 1984
Abstract: An apparatus for producing drinking water from bacteria contaminated
cold water is provided. The cold contaminated water is placed into a flexible
collector having a sub-micron porous filter in the bottom. When the flexible
collector is squeezed, the pressure forces the contaminated water through
the filter and into a holding chamber. The drinkable filtered water is removed
from the holding chamber through a sterile exit opening.
Date of Patent: Oct. 31, 1978
Abstract: A semi-automatic Label Stripping Machine for detaching labels
from round containers in which a labeled container is placed on a container
receiver platform means, a spring loaded stabilizing top roller means is brought
down overtop and abutting the container, the container is rotated on its central
vertical axis by a rotary drive means operably connected to said container
receiving platform means, and, while said container is rotated, a razor means,
operably connected to a vertical drive means, moves down the outside circumferal
labeled wall of the container, spirally cutting off the label from the container.
of Patent: June 22, 1976
Abstract: An electric capping machine for crimping the caps of containers, in which
each cycle of operation takes place fully automatically, once initiated by
the operator: in the course of each operation, a container-receiving member
is automatically raised into engagement with a spring -loaded abutment roller
of the crimping mechanism which, upon further upward movement, causes the
crimping roller to be positively brought into engagement with the edge of
the cap by the use of a quadrilateral linkage connection actuated by the cam
follower. To increase the safety of the operating personnel, both hands must
be placed in a predetermined position relative to the machine before the cycle
of operation can be initiated.
