Title
(EN) FLEXIBLE POUCH FILLING, SEALING AND FITMENT INSERTION SYSTEM
(FR) SYSTEME DE REMPLISSAGE, DE FERMETURE ET D'INSERTION D'UN GOULOT POUR SACHETS SOUPLES
Abstract
(EN)
A method of filling pouches, particularly drink pouches, with few steps in the process. A pouch is provided for filling and placed on its side on a conveyor belt. The pouch is pushed to a stop such that the open end of the pouch is placed for accurate engagement by clamps which pick up the pouch on both sides of the mouth and rotate the pouch to a vertical position with the mouth facing upward. The clamps then move relative to the center of the pouch opening the mouth, optionally with an incoming jet of air to assist with the opening. A substance such as a liquid to drink is then placed in the pouch, the clamps are moved apart and the pouch sealed. Fitments may be placed in the pouch before the pouch mouth is closed and sealed. The filled pouches are then released from the clamps.

Procédé de remplissage de sachets, en particulier de sachets de boisson, en un nombre réduit d'opérations. Un sachet destiné à être rempli est couché une bande transporteuse. Le sachet est amené contre une butée de telle sorte que son extrémité ouverte est positionnée pour que des pinces puissent s'y engager avec précision et saisissent le sachet de part et d'autre de son ouverture et le font pivoter en position verticale avec l'ouverture tournée vers le haut. Les pinces se déplacent ensuite par rapport à l'ouverture, ce mouvement s'accompagnant éventuellement d'un jet d'air destiné à faciliter l'ouverture. Une substance telle qu'une boisson est ensuite placée dans le sachet, puis les pinces s'écartent et le sachet est fermé et scellé. Les sachets remplis sont alors libérés des pinces.
