Title (EN) SEPARATOR FOR LINERLESS LABELS
(FR) SEPARATEUR POUR ETIQUETTES SANS BANDE DE SUPPORT
Abstract:
(EN) Linerless labels are cut or burst from a web (W) by passing the web (W) through infeed and outfeed pairs of rolls (12, 14; 30, 32) with a separator device located therebetween. Each roll pair includes a friction surface for engaging the slick smooth surface (S) of the web and another roll with a silicone elastomeric or plasma-coated surface for engaging substantially without gripping the exposed adhesive side (A) of the linerless label web (W). In the cutting mode, a rotary blade severs (42) the web against a fixed blade (40) to form the label. The infeed rolls (12, 14) are backed up after each cut to break the adhesive bond between the web (W) and the fixed blade (40) and then reverse to advance through the cutting position and into the outfeed rolls (30, 32) for a subsequent cutting operation. The outfeed rolls (30, 32) continue to advance the cut linerless label to a receiving station. In a bursting mode, the web (W) is perforated and a roller breaker bar (80) is disposed between the infeed and outfeed rolls (12, 14; 30, 32) to break the web (W) along the perforations to form the linerless label.
(FR) On coupe dans une bande (W) d'étiquettes dépourvues de bande de support ou on les sépare de celle-ci en faisant passer cette bande (W) par des paires de rouleaux d'entrée et de sortie (12, 14; 30, 32), un dispositif séparateur se trouvant entre ces rouleaux. Chaque paire de rouleaux comporte un rouleau à surface de frottement destiné à venir au contact de la surface (S) lisse de la bande et un autre rouleau dont la face est revêtue d'un élastomère de silicone ou de plasma pour venir sensiblement au contact de la surface adhésive exposée (A) de la bande (W) d'étiquettes dépourvues de bande de support sans y adhérer. En mode de coupe, une lame tournante (42) sectionne la bande en appui sur une lame fixe (40) pour former l'étiquette. Les rouleaux d'entrée (12, 14) sont ramenés en arrière après chaque coupe afin de rompre le lien adhésif existant entre la bande (W) et la lame fixe (40), le sens de marche est ensuite inversé pour que la bande traverse l'ensemble de coupe et passe par les rouleaux de sortie (30, 32) pour une autre opération coupe, ces rouleaux de sortie (30, 32) continuant de faire avancer l'étiquette coupée sans support vers un poste de réception. Dans le mode de séparation, la bande (W) est perforée et un rouleau piqueur (80), placé entre les rouleaux d'entrée et de sortie (12, 14; 30, 32), rompt la bande (W) le long des perforations pour former l'étiquette dépourvue de bande de support.
