Abstract
(EN)
A novel dunnage-creating machine and methodology characterized by various features including, inter alia, a modular construction, easier access to interior components, and a low cost cutting assembly. The machine comprises front and rear units having separate housings (37, 43). The housing of the rear unit (37) includes an outer shell (31) having a converging chute surrounding a shaping member over which sheet-like stock material is drawn to form the stock material into a three-dimensional shape. The front unit includes in the housing thereof a feed mechanism for drawing the stock material over the shaping member and stitching the shaped material to form a strip of dunnage product. The front unit also includes a manual cutting mechanism for cutting the strip to form cut pieces, which manual cutting mechanism includes a readily replaceable blade assembly.

Nouvelle machine et méthode de création de matelassure présentant différentes caractéristiques, dont entre autres une configuration modulaire, une plus grande facilité d'accès aux pièces internes et un ensemble de coupe de coût peu élevé. Ladite machine comprend des unités avant et arrière dotées de boîtiers séparés (37, 43). Le boîtier de l'unité arrière (37) comprend une coque externe (31) dotée d'une goulotte convergente, entourant un élément de mise en forme sur lequel le matériau de départ en feuille est passé de sorte qu'il adopte une forme tridimensionnelle. L'unité avant comprend dans son boîtier un mécanisme d'alimentation conçu pour faire passer le matériau de départ sur l'élément de mise en forme et à piquer le matériau mis en forme afin qu'il forme une bande de produit de matelassure. L'unité avant comporte également un mécanisme de coupe manuelle destiné à couper la bande pour former des morceaux coupés, ledit mécanisme de coupe manuelle comprenant un ensemble lame facile à remplacer.
