Title: (DE) VORRICHTUNG ZUM ANBRINGEN VON TRINKHALMEN
(EN) AN APPARATUS FOR APPLYING DRINKING STRAWS
(FR) APPAREIL PERMETTANT D'APPLIQUER DES PAILLES
Abstract: front page image
(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).
(FR) L'invention concerne un appareil permettant d'appliquer des pailles (3) sur des contenants d'emballage (17) préfabriqués. L'appareil comprend un moyen d'entraînement rotatif (1) servant à avancer les pailles (3), emballées dans une enveloppe de protection, qui sont guidées vers ce moyen d'entraînement (1) et sont disposées en continu sous forme de bande (2) de pailles. L'appareil comprend également des guides (4, 5) destinés aux bandes de pailles (2) et aux pailles (3), un dispositif permettant de séparer les pailles (3) de la bande (2), et un dispositif (16) destiné à appliquer la paille (3) sur la paroi latérale (18) du contenant d'emballage (17). Le moyen d'entraînement (1) de l'appareil tourne en continu, et le dispositif (8) permettant de séparer les pailles (3) de la bande (2) accompagne la rotation du moyen d'entraînement (1) sur une partie du mouvement, ce mouvement étant réalisé à l'aide d'une came (12) et d'un galet de came (13) coopérant avec la came (12). L'appareil comprend également une courroie transporteuse (23), entraînée en continu, sur laquelle les contenants d'emballage (17) sont avancés de telle façon qu'un contenant passe à côté du moyen d'entraînement (1). Le dispositif (16) permettant d'appliquer les pailles (3) sur la paroi latérale du contenant d'emballage (17) est placé pour accompagner le mouvement de la courroie transporteuse (23) sur une certaine distance. Pour pouvoir exécuter ce mouvement d'accompagnement, le dispositif d'application (16) est monté dans deux arbres excentriques (21, 22).
