Title (EN) IMPROVED ULTRASONIC TIEING TOOL
(FR) OUTIL A ULTRASONS AMELIORE DESTINE A LIER ENSEMBLE DES ARTICLES
Abstract:
(EN) An ultrasonic tieing tool (200) for installation of a tape (240) about a bundle of elongate articles (140). The tool includes an ultrasonic horn (76) wherein the welding tip (78) is movable between a first position for welding of a tape to secure the tensioned loop about the plurality of articles and a second position wherein the welding tip is translated a distance from the first position to effect cutting of the tensioned loop from the stock of tape and to tack weld the loose cut end to the underlying tape of the loop to eliminate any protruding sharp edges. The tool additionally includes a belt drive mechanism (247) for advancing the tape to the jaw assembly (220) and for tensioning the tape following looping of the tape about the outside.
(FR) Outil à ultrasons (200) destiné à lier ensemble des articles, qui permet de poser une bande (240) autour d'un faisceau d'articles allongés (140). Le dispositif comprend un émetteur ultrasonore (76) et une busette de soudage (78), qui peut passer d'une première position, dans laquelle elle permet de souder une bande afin de fixer la boucle tendue autour de la pluralité d'articles, à une seconde position, dans laquelle elle s'éloigne d'une certaine distance par rapport à la première position, de façon à couper la boucle tendue en la séparant de la réserve de bande, puis à souder par points l'extrémité coupée libre sur la bande sous-jacente de la boucle en supprimant tous les bords aigus en saillie. L'outil comprend également un mécanisme d'entraînement par courroie (247), qui fait avancer la bande vers l'ensemble mâchoire (220) et qui la tend une fois qu'elle a formé une boucle autour des articles.
