Title (EN) DEVICE FOR APPLYING A LABEL AROUND A BARREL
(FR) DISPOSITIF SERVANT A POSER UNE ETIQUETTE CIRCONFERENTIELLE SUR UN TONNEAU
Abstract:
(EN) The invention relates to the provision of a removable wrap-around label (3) for a barrel (1), cask or the like and an apparatus adapted to provide such a label and a method for operating said apparatus. In use, a number of barrels (1) are positioned on conveyor (12) and travel in a forward direction (22) towards the labelling station (10). At the labelling station, the foremost edge (30) of barrel (1) contacts a first side (32) of plastic web label (3), which is fed by means of simultaneously rotation of reels (14). As the barrel (1) continues to move forward, web (3) is carried therewith such that it is wrapped around the girth of the barrel (1). Then at the centre (10A) of labelling station (10), devices (16) unite and trap therebetween web (3) by moving towards each other. Two sealing heads on these devices (16) are activated and a cutting head cuts the web (3) in between, thus providing on one side a label wrapped around the barrel and uniting again the two cut parts of the web (3) for further operation.
(FR) On décrit la pose d'une étiquette circonférentielle décollable (3) sur un tonneau (1), un fût ou analogue, un appareil adapté pour poser une telle étiquette, ainsi qu'un procédé de mise en ÷uvre dudit appareil. Lors de l'utilisation, un certain nombre de tonneaux (1) avancent sur un dispositif transporteur (12) en direction (22) d'un poste d'étiquetage (10) où le bord avant (30) du tonneau (1) entre en contact avec une première face (32) d'une étiquette (3) constituée d'une bande plastique débitée par des bobines (14) à rotation simultanée. Au fur et à mesure que le tonneau (1) avance, la bande (3) est entraînée avec lui de sorte qu'elle ceint sa circonférence. Ensuite, au centre (10A) dudit poste d'étiquetage (10), des dispositifs (16) serrent entre eux ladite bande (3) en se rapprochant l'un de l'autre. Deux têtes de scellement disposées sur ces dispositifs (16) sont actionnées et une tête de coupe sectionne la bande (3) entre celles-ci. Ainsi, le tonneau est doté d'une étiquette circonférentielle et les deux parties coupées de la bande (3) se rejoignent pour permettre aux opérations de se poursuivre.
