|20150027965||Product Stabilizer - A product stabilizer is employed to prevent tipping or shingling of product in a packaging line. The product stabilizer utilizes a linear actuator, coupled to a plurality of arms, to ensure proper spacing between adjacent products in the packaging line.||01-29-2015|
|20140260113||Packaging Loader Assembly - A packaging loader for loading products into packaging has a conveyor, a collator, and a nesting assembly. The conveyor conveys products to the collator, where the products are collected and, subsequently, transferred to the nesting assembly. The nesting assembly rearranges at least some of the products for placement into the packaging. Once the products have been properly arranged by the nesting assembly, they are placed within the packaging. The process repeats, as desired, to arrange one or more layers of products within the packaging.||09-18-2014|
|20140231493||Package Assembly with Tear Away Film and Manufacturing System - A package assembly includes a number of containers, a heat-shrink wrapping disposed around the containers and tear strip; the tear strip aids in opening the heat-shrink wrapping. The tear strip can be defined by perforations disposed through the heat-shrink wrapping and arranged in pathways. The perforations are cut in the heat-shrink wrapping with a packaging apparatus having a cutting member. The cutting member is used in combination with a die to leave a chad attached to heat-shrink wrapping. Thereafter, the heat-shrink wrapping is shrunk with a heating source in order to bundle containers together within the package assembly.||08-21-2014|
|20140155238||Multiple Blank Carton Former and Carton Production Method - A carton forming machine has a forming assembly, a first carton dispenser, and a second carton dispenser. The forming assembly includes a forming head and a plurality of forming stations including a first forming station and a second forming station. The forming head has an axis of travel along which it moves to form a carton from multiple carton blanks. The first forming station is aligned with the second forming station along the axis of travel, and the forming head travels through the first and second forming stations.||06-05-2014|
|20140060998||High Speed Servo Laner - A high speed servo laner apparatus and system includes an entrance to the laner which receives products from an upstream processing line. A pivoting guide has a distal end attached to the entrance and a proximal end attached to a movable portion. At least one pacing screw is also attached to the moveable portion. The at least one pacing screw includes a thread, which has a pitch and radius configured to accommodate passage of a unit of product between two axially adjacent portions of the thread.||03-06-2014|
|20120325621||Bulk Product Diverter - A bulk product diverter and system for separating bulk product units into multiple product streams includes a unique conveyor assembly. The conveyor has a plurality of flights wherein the adjacent flights define buckets into which groups of bulk product units are placed. The conveyor conveys each bucket in a downstream direction along a horizontal path, then along a vertical path, then around a turn of approximately 150 degrees. A diverter fence is selectively movable between an open position and a closed position. In the open position the path defines a first gate through which acceptable product units are passed. In the closed position the product units continue around the turn to pass through a second gate.||12-27-2012|
|20110319241||Pizza Tray and Forming Assembly - A forming assembly and process for forming a carton from a carton blank are herein disclosed. The finished carton can have an odd number of sides and/or an angle between two adjacent sides that is less than 90 degrees. The forming assembly includes a forming head and a forming cavity. The forming head acts as an inner die and the forming cavity acts as an outer die. In addition, the forming cavity includes at least one cavity side plate that desirably folds tabs on the carton blank to secure the tabs to one another and form the finished carton.||12-29-2011|
|20110083404||Packaging Machine - A packaging apparatus for real-time alignment of packaging surfaces can include two or more sensors for detecting the positioning of carton surfaces and a servo system. The servo system can include a servo motor and a controller. The servo system records the positioning of the carton surfaces and calculates a difference in position. The controller compares the calculated value with a predetermined value and if necessary, the servo motor turns a correction wheel to align the carton surfaces.||04-14-2011|
|20100115887||Detection System - A foil lid inspection system for detecting and separating defective foil lids on a container in a production line includes one or more light sources, an inspection camera, and inspection software. The light sources are positioned to direct light in an upward direction to illuminate the container. The inspection camera is positioned above the foil lid, and the camera includes one or more outputs. The inspection software is in communication with the inspection camera. The inspection software is constructed and arranged to determine if the foil lid on the container is defective. A reject signal is applied to an output if the software determines that the foil lid is defective.||05-13-2010|
|20100107559||Packaging Machine - A packaging apparatus for real-time alignment of packaging surfaces can include two or more sensors for detecting the positioning of carton surfaces and a servo system. The servo system can include a servo motor and a controller. The servo system records the positioning of the carton surfaces and calculates a difference in position. The controller compares the calculated value with a predetermined value and if necessary, the servo motor turns a correction wheel to align the carton surfaces.||05-06-2010|
|20080223909||Package Assembly - A container package assembly includes two support members. Both the support members have a top, a bottom, a first side, a second side, and a vertical support. For each support member, the vertical support is integrally engaged to the top, the bottom, the first side, and the second side. For each support member, the top is substantially parallel to the bottom, the first side is substantially parallel to the second side, and the vertical support is substantially perpendicular to the top and the bottom. For each support member, the first side and the second side have a top edge and a bottom edge, the top edge having a top edge length and the bottom edge having a bottom edge length, the top edge length being less than the bottom edge length. The vertical support of the first support member is immediately adjacent the vertical support of the second support member.||09-18-2008|
