Title
(EN) An apparatus for applying drinking straws
Abstract
(EN)
The invention relates to an apparatus for applying drinking straws (3) on prefabricated packaging containers (17). The apparatus includes a rotary drive means (1) for advancing drinking straws (3) which are guided in towards the drive means (1) wrapped in protective envelopes, and continuously disposed as drinking straw belts (2). The apparatus also includes guides (4, 5) for drinking straws belts (2) and drinking straws (3), and a device for separating drinking straws (3) from the belt (2), and a device (16) for applying the drinking straw (3) on the side wall (18) of the packaging container (17). The drive means (1) of the apparatus rotates continuously, and the device (8) for separating drinking straws (3) from the belt (2) is disposed to accompany a part distance of the rotation of the drive means (1), this movement being realised by means of a cam (12) and a cam roller (13) cooperating therewith. The apparatus further includes a continuously driven conveyor (23) on which the packaging containers (17) are advanced so that one passes the drive means (1). The device (16) for applying drinking straws (3) to the side wall of the packaging container (17) is disposed to accompany a part distance of the movement of the conveyor belt (23). The accompanying movement is realised in that the applicator device (16) is journalled in two eccentric shafts (21, 22).
