One or more pairs of seal plates are stamped from a sheet metal. The seal plates are positioned into respective mold cavities. An insulative substrate is introduced into the respective mold cavities. The insulative substrate is allowed to harden in the respective mold cavities to form respective jaw housings with seal plates secured thereto. The jaw housings are removed from the respective mold cavities to form a pair of jaw members.07-25-2013
20130185923METHOD FOR MANUFACTURING AN INSULATED PIPE USING A BAG - The present invention relates to a method for manufacturing an insulated pipe comprising an inner pipe, an insulation material and a casing. The manufacturing method of the present invention concerns in particular the process of moulding an insulation material onto the inner pipe, comprising the step of covering the inner pipe with a closed bag with open ends and subsequently inserting the bag covered inner pipe into a mould. Hereafter the insulation material is injected in a liquid state into the mould between the inner pipe and the bag. The insulation material in a liquid state will after injection start to expand and finally solidify. During those processes, the bag is pressed towards the inner wall of the mould.07-25-2013

20120055010MANUFACTURE OF COMPOSITE LIGHT DIFFUSING GLASS PANELS - Disclosed is a method of making a composite light diffusing panel, comprising providing a first glass lite with a light transmissive fabric layer applied to surface thereof; applying a primary sealant to the surface of the first glass lite using an edge referencing method to meet horizontal dimensional requirements; mounting a spacer to the primary sealant on the surface of the first glass lite to form a first subassembly; applying a primary sealant to the surface of a second glass lite also using an edge referencing method to form a second subassembly; and topping the second subassembly atop the first subassembly to form an assembled composite light diffusing panel. Also disclosed is a flipping apparatus that can be used in the method.03-08-2012
20120084966METHOD OF MAKING AN INTERACTIVE KEYBOARD - Various methods of making an interactive keyboard in which a plurality of mechanically-depressible keys are situated over a display device, each of the mechanically-depressible keys being configured to permit through-key viewing of images produced by the display device, is provided. One example method includes providing a mold which defines a mold cavity. The method further includes introducing keycap material into the mold cavity. In such an example, the keycap material and the mold interact to produce a molded keycap having a viewing portion with one or more optical layers that are at least partially see-through and configured to provide one or more optical effects in connection with light that is incident upon the one or more optical layers.04-12-2012
