Title
(EN) IMPROVED METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR PROVIDING END SEALS ON VERTICAL STAND-UP PACKAGES
(FR) PROCEDE ET APPAREIL AMELIORES DE FORMATION DE FERMETURES HERMETIQUES SUR DES EMBALLAGES A MAINTIEN VERTICAL
Abstract
(EN) An improved method and apparatus for providing end seals on vertical stand up packages that prevents pleat formation and gusset variation. A clamping device is mounted below sealing jaws. A bottom end seal is made by the sealing jaws to form an open-ended tube. The open-ended tube is moved downward. The clamping device engages the tube to prevent twisting when product is placed into the tube. Product then enters an open-ended tube of flexible film packaging and the top seal is made.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un procédé et un appareil améliorés qui permettent de former des fermetures hermétiques sur des emballages à maintien vertical tout en empêchant la formation de plis et la variation du soufflet. Un dispositif de serrage est installé sous des mâchoires de scellage. Une fermeture terminale inférieure est réalisée par les mâchoires de scellage pour former un tube à extrémité ouverte. Le tube à extrémité ouverte est déplacé vers le bas, le dispositif de serrage maintenant le tube pour l'empêcher de se tordre lorsqu'un produit est placé dans le tube. Le produit entre alors dans un tube à extrémité ouverte en film souple d'emballage et la fermeture hermétique supérieure est réalisée.
