Title: (EN) AN APPARATUS FOR APPLYING DRINKING STRAWS
(ES) APARATO PARA LA APLICACION DE POPOTES
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).
(ES) La presente invención se refiere a un aparato parta la aplicación de popotes a recipientes para empacado prefabricados, que comprende un medio de impulso rotatorio para las bandas continuas de popotes envueltos en envolturas protectoras, unas guías para las bandas de popotes y los popotes, un transportador para los recipientes para empacado, un dispositivo para la separación de popotes de la banda, y un dispositivo para la aplicación de los popotes a la pared lateral del recipiente para empacado, caracterizado porque el medio de impulso gira continuamente;porque el dispositivo para la separación de popotes se coloca para acompañar una parte de la distancia del giro o rotación del medio de impulso;porque el transportador se impulsa continuamente;y porque el dispositivo para la aplicación del os popotes se coloca para acompañar una parte de la distancia del movimiento de la banda transportadora.
