|20120298663||FLEXIBLE STURDY BASE CONTAINER AND METHOD FOR MAKING THE SAME - Flexible sturdy base containers and methods for manufacturing the same are provided. The flexible sturdy base container includes a rigid base element formed of a relatively rigid material. The rigid base element includes a bottom and a perimeter wall having an outward facing surface. The container also includes a flexible wall element formed of a relatively flexible material. The flexible wall element is affixed to the outward facing surface of the perimeter wall of the rigid base element and extends in a direction away from the bottom of the rigid base element. The flexible wall element and the bottom of the rigid base element together form an exterior of the flexible sturdy base container.||11-29-2012|
|20120163739||PACKAGE HAVING A RESEALABLE POUR SPOUT - A package formed of a package material comprising a heat-sealable inner layer, an outer layer, and a pressure-sensitive adhesive disposed between the inner layer and the outer layer. The package may include a gusset with a center fold that divides the gusset into a first folded portion and a second folded portion. The package may further include a transverse heat-seal region extending across the gusset whereby the first folded portion is sealed to itself by mating surfaces of the heat-sealable inner layer and the second folded portion is sealed to itself by mating surfaces of the heat-sealable inner layer. The package may also include a patterned die cut formed in the heat-sealable inner layer, wherein at least a portion of the patterned die cut is adjacent to the transverse heat-seal region of the gusset so as to allow a portion of the inner layer to delaminate and expose a portion of the pressure-sensitive adhesive when the center fold is unfolded and the resealable pour spout is opened.||06-28-2012|
|20110074057||Methods and Systems for Thermoforming with Billets - Methods and systems for producing thermoformed articles from pre-cut thermoformable billets are provided. The system may include a heating apparatus for heating the billets, a billet thermoformer for thermoforming the billet into an article, a discharge system for evacuated the formed articles from the thermoformer, and an inspection system for inspecting each of the formed articles for the presence of a defect. Conveyors and billet carriers are provided for transporting the billets between the various components of the system, and loaders are provided for loading the billets onto the conveyor and/or billet carriers.||03-31-2011|
|20110000613||Heat Seal Die With Compressible Heat Seal Members and Methods of Use Thereof - The present application provides improved heat seal dies and methods of use thereof. The heat seal die includes a first heat seal jaw having a first heat sealing surface and a second heat seal jaw having a second heat sealing surface. The second heat seal jaw may have a plurality of channels and a plurality of resilient compressible members with each resilient compressible member being disposed within one of the channels. The plurality of resilient compressible members may form at least a portion of a second heat sealing surface.||01-06-2011|
|20100172604||Reclosable Container with Resealable Flexible Cover and Method for Manufacturing the Same - A reclosable container with a resealable, flexible cover portion that is easy to use and a method of manufacturing the same. The reclosable container comprises a container body having a storage space and an opening providing access to the storage space. The container body includes a base portion and a resealable cover portion having an inner layer, an outer layer, and a pressure-sensitive adhesive affixing the inner layer to the outer layer. The inner layer of the resealable cover portion is heat sealed to the base portion about the opening thereby forming a heat-sealed region where the inner layer contacts and is heat sealed to the base portion. The inner layer of the resealable cover portion has a cut inside the heat-sealed region such that when the resealable cover portion is pulled apart from the base portion, the inner layer, the outer layer, and the pressure-sensitive adhesive are together lifted away from the opening, but the inner layer remains attached to the base portion in and adjacent to the heat-sealed region such that the pressure-sensitive adhesive contacting the inner layer in and adjacent to the heat-sealed region is exposed.||07-08-2010|
|20100172600||FLEXIBLE CONTAINER AND METHOD OF MAKING THE SAME - A flexible container comprising at least two flexible walls sealed together at one or more seal areas to form a container compartment and a handle portion is provided. The handle portion includes an aperture and an unsealed edge adjacent the aperture and distal the container compartment. The aperture and the unsealed edge are surrounded by a first seal area of the one or more seal areas. A method of making a flexible container is also provided.||07-08-2010|
|20100098814||Flexible Package With Stress Riser Opening - The present application provides improved sealed packages and improved methods for making sealed packages. The sealed package includes a first side and a second side, wherein the first side and the second side each comprise a laminate material including an product-side layer and a film layer, the product-side layers of the first and second sides at least partially heat sealed together to form a heat seal between the first and second sides such that the heat seal comprises a stress riser, wherein the heat seal is stronger than the bond between the product-side layer and the film layer of the laminate material.||04-22-2010|
|20090301903||Packaging Article, A Wrapped Ream of Paper, and Methods - A packaging article including a flap for opening and reclosing the packaging article. The packaging article comprises a flexible packaging material and a label. The flexible packaging material includes the flap and a plurality of slits defining at least a portion of a boundary of the flap. The plurality of slits are substantially parallel to and spaced from one another and have a length dimension. When applying to the flap a tearing force directed substantially perpendicularly to the length dimensions of the plurality of slits, the flap can be opened by the tearing force tearing the flexible packaging material between the plurality of slits. A first portion of the label is affixed to a portion of the flap. A second portion of the label is adapted to be repeatedly removably adhered to a portion of the flexible packaging material adjacent the flap such that the flap can be opened and reclosed. The packaging article may be a ream wrapper.||12-10-2009|
