(FR) DISPOSITIF ET PROCEDE DE TRANSPORT D'UN CARTON ENTRE DES STATIONS DE TRAITEMENT D'UNE MACHINE D'EMBALLAGE
Abstract:
(EN) An apparatus for use while moving a container from a first processing station to a second processing station of a packaging machine is set forth which includes pincers for temporarily holding the sealing panels of the container in a generally closed condition as the container is moved from the first processing station to the second processing station. In accordance with one embodiment of a packaging machine that includes the apparatus, the first processing station may be a filling station and the second processing station may be a sealing station. In accordance with another embodiment of the apparatus, a corresponding method is also contemplated.
(FR) L'invention concerne un dispositif conçu pour être utilisé pendant le déplacement d'un carton depuis une première station de traitement jusqu'à une deuxième station de traitement d'une machine d'emballage. Ce dispositif comprend des pinces servant à tenir temporairement les panneaux de scellement du carton à l'état de fermeture simultanément au déplacement dudit carton depuis la première station de traitement jusqu'à la deuxième station de traitement. Dans un mode de réalisation d'une machine d'emballage comportant ledit dispositif, la première station de traitement peut être une station de remplissage et la deuxième station de traitement peut être une station de scellement. Dans un autre mode de réalisation du dispositif, on décrit un procédé correspondant.
