Title (EN) APPARATUS AND METHOD FOR THE REGISTERED EMBOSSING OF CONTAINERS
(FR) APPAREIL ET PROCEDE CORRESPONDANT PERMETTANT UN EMBOUTISSAGE ENREGISTRE DE RECIPIENTS
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A can body embossing apparatus has a first mandrel with a first tooling member (100) adapted to receive thereon a can body (40) and a second mandrel with a second tooling member (100) reciprocally movable from a first position distal the first tooling member to a second position proximate the first tooling member. In the second position, the can body side wall is engaged between the first tooling member and the second tooling member. The first tooling member (100) defines one or more recessed portions therein and the second tooling member (200) defines one or more protuberances (205) extending therefrom and adapted to correspond with the recessed portions. The first mandrel and second mandrel are in mechanical communication throughout the reciprocal movement of the second mandrel such that the first and second tooling members (200) rotate continuously with the respect to each other and maintain a substantially constant relative position with respect to each other. The continuous side wall of the can body is conveyed between the first and second tooling members to effect the embossing of the side wall resulting in the formation of decorative embossed features in the side wall.
(FR)Cet appareil à emboutir un corps de boîte comporte un premier mandrin pourvu d'un premier élément d'outillage de frappe (100) adapté à recevoir un corps de boîte (40) et un second mandrin pourvu d'un second élément d'outillage de frappe (200) susceptible d'effectuer un mouvement de va-et-vient depuis une première position éloignée du premier élément d'outillage vers une seconde position à proximité de celui-ci. Dans la seconde position, la paroi latérale du corps de boîte se trouve prise entre les deux éléments d'outillage de frappe. Le premier élément d'outillage (100) comporte une ou plusieurs parties évidées tandis que le second porte une ou plusieurs protubérances (205) correspondant aux évidements. Les deux mandrins sont en communication mécanique du fait du mouvement de va-et-vient du second mandrin de sorte que le premier (100) et le second élément (200) d'outillage de frappe tournent sans interruption l'un autour de l'autre et conservent une position relativement constante l'un par rapport à l'autre. La paroi latérale de la boîte passe entre les éléments d'outillage de frappe lors de l'opération d'emboutissage, ce qui donne lieu à la création de motifs emboutis sur ladite paroi latérale.
