Title (EN) FORM, FILL, SEAL AND SEPARATE PACKAGING MACHINE FOR RECLOSABLE CONTAINERS
(FR) MACHINE DE FORMAGE, REMPLISSAGE, FERMETURE HERMETIQUE ET EMBALLAGE SEPARE POUR CONTENEURS REFERMABLES
Abstract:
(EN) A form, fill, seal and separate packaging machine for reclosable containers is accomplished by a plurality of stations disposed along a path of travel of a thermoplastic web (12) including a pair of mated, resealable closure strips present on the base web. The machine is intermittent in its operation, with movement of the web through the machine controlled so that the various steps of forming, filling, sealing and separating the reclosable containers are performed during periodic stops of the machine. The machine is further characterized by its use of two pairs of web belts to move the web through the machine. A first pair of web belts (26 and 28) initially receive the folded web stock (12) and partially form and completely fill the containers. The second pair of web belts (82 and 84) overlap with the downstream end of the first pair of belts (26 and 28), but are disposed lower than the first belts. When the filled partially formed containers pass from the first pair of belts (26 and 28) to the second pair of belts (82 and 84), the unsealed free ends (40) are exposed for final sealing and severing.
(FR) La machine de formage, remplissage, fermeture hermétique et emballage séparé pour conteneurs refermables est constituée par une pluralité de postes disposés le long d'un chemin de déplacement d'une bande thermoplastique (12) comprenant une paire de rubans de fermeture apparillés refermables présents sur la bande de base. La machine a un fonctionnement intermittent, avec mouvement commandé de la bande au travers de la machine de sorte que les diverses étapes de formage, remplissage, fermeture et emballage séparé des conteneurs refermables s'effectuent pendant des arrêts périodiques de la machine. La machine se caractérise en outre par l'utilisation de deux paires de bandes transporteuses pour déplacer la bande susmentionnée au travers de la machine. Une première paire de bandes transporteuses (26 et 28) reçoit initialement la bande susmentionnée pliée (12) et forme partiellement et remplit complètement les conteneurs. La seconde paire de bandes transporteuses (82 et 84) chevauche l'extrémité avale de la première paire de bandes transporteuses (26 et 28) mais elles sont disposées plus bas que les premières bandes transporteuses. Lorsque les conteneurs remplis et partiellement formés passent de la première paire de bandes transporteuses (26 et 28) vers la seconde paire de bandes transporteuses (82 et 84), les extrémités libres non scellées (40) sont exposées pour le scellement et le sectionnement finals.
