An apparatus for forming an alignment of longitudinally spaced short slits with undulated edges in a sheet of fresh pasta comprises a pair of meshing but noncontacting identical gear-like elements mounted on rotatively driven parallel shafts. Each gear-like element is a pair of identical bevel-toothed disks abutted together so that the tips of the bevel teeth of one disk are opposite the grooves between the teeth of the other disk, the width of the bevel teeth being appreciably less than the width of the grooves. The novel pasta product of the apparatus features an alignment of longitudinally spaced short slits with undulated edges.
Please note there is up to 60 days of latency in this Status indicator for certain status conditions. You can obtain up-to-date Status indicator readings by ordering PAIR for the file.
An application with the status "Published" (which means it is pending) may be recently abandoned, but not yet updated to reflect its abandoned status. However, an application filed less than one year ago is unlikely to be abandoned.
A patent with the status "Granted" may be recently expired, but not yet updated to reflect its expired status. However, it is highly unlikely a patent less than 3.5 years old would be expired.
An application with the status "Abandoned" is almost always current, but there is a small chance it was recently revived and the status not yet updated.
