Title
(EN) APPARATUS FOR EJECTING AN ARTICLE FROM A BLISTER PACK
(FR) APPAREIL POUR EJECTER UN ARTICLE D'UN EMBALLAGE-COQUE
Abstract
(EN) Apparatus for ejecting an article or tablet (7) having an ejecting member (40) and a blister pack (3) mounted for movement relative to one another, the blister pack having a blister layer with a blister (3) projecting from the blister layer to define a recess for receiving an article, and a lidding layer attached to said blister layer, the lidding layer having a seal portion (9) overlying said recess, the apparatus being configured so that the article (7) is ejected by the ejecting members (40a, 40b) applying force through the blister to the article in such a manner that the article (7) applies force unevenly to the seal portion (9) to thereby rupture the seal portion. The blister (3) can also have an offset projection (15) into the recess to bear against the tablet to thereby cause the tablet to tilt and apply force unevenly to the seal portion.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un appareil pour éjecter un article ou un comprimé (7). Il est constitué d'un élément éjecteur (40) et d'un emballage-coque (3) montés en vue d'un déplacement relatif l'un par rapport à l'autre. L'emballage coque est fait, d'une part d'une couche de coque, laquelle coque (3) forme un relief par rapport à la couche de coque de façon à définir une alvéole permettant de recevoir un article, et d'autre part d'une couche d'operculage attenante à la couche de coque et dont une zone vient former l'opercule recouvrant l'alvéole. L'appareil est configuré de façon que l'article (7) soit éjecté par l'application d'une force sur l'article par les éléments éjecteurs (40a, 40b) au travers de la coque de façon que l'article applique la force irrégulièrement contre la partie formant l'opercule (9) jusqu'à le rompre. La coque (3) peut également comporter une protubérance décentrée (15) rentrant dans l'alvéole de façon à porter contre le comprimé, amenant ainsi le comprimé à l'incliner et à appliquer irrégulièrement la force contre l'opercule.
