Comment It's process AND appratus, not just process, RTFP (Score 1) 346

How about before making silly comments folks actually have a go at reading the patent? It's a method AND apparatus. The patent also discusses some machinery for doing things like heating in parallel with the thing being assembled. It might stand half a chance of getting through if the apparatus is not deemed to obvious by one with knowledge of the field; but it is more than just a process.

Adding features does not necessarily increase functionality -- it just makes the manuals thicker.
