Title (EN) FAN-FOLDED WEB OF PRESSURE-SENSITIVE LABELS AND METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR MAKING AND USING SAME
(FR) BANDE PLIEE EN ACCORDEON D'ETIQUETTES AUTOCOLLANTES, ET PROCEDE ET APPAREIL PERMETTANT DE FABRIQUER ET D'UTILISER UNE TELLE BANDE
Abstract:
(EN) A label product in web form has alternating, oppositely indented creases in the liner of the product to produce a fan-folded stack having alternating, reversely folded plies. Each crease is substantially, if not entirely, perforation-free to maximize the strength of the liner at the fold lines. The product is preferably produced on a narrow web press in a creasing station that includes a stack of rolls wherein a first die roll is on the bottom of the stack, a second die roll is on the top of the stack, and a pair of base rolls are located in the middle of the stack between the die rolls. A blade on each die roll cooperates with a cushion on the corresponding base roll to produce a crease during every other rotation of the die roll, each of the base rolls having a smaller circumference than its corresponding die roll.
(FR) La présente invention se rapporte à un produit à étiquettes sous forme de bande, qui possède des plis alternés et dotés d'indentations opposées dans la doublure dudit produit, afin de former un empilage plié en accordéon et présentant des plis alternés, qui sont pliés dans un sens puis dans l'autre. Chaque pli est sensiblement, voire totalement, exempt de perforations, ce qui permet d'augmenter au maximum la résistance de la doublure au niveau des lignes de pliage. Le produit selon l'invention est de préférence fabriqué sur une presse à bobines étroite, dans un poste de pliage qui comprend un empilage de rouleaux formé d'un premier rouleau de matrice situé en bas de l'empilage, d'un deuxième rouleau de matrice situé en haut de l'empilage, et d'une paire de rouleaux de base situés au milieu de l'empilage, entre les rouleaux de matrice. Une lame placée sur chaque rouleau de matrice coopère avec un coussin situé sur le rouleau de base correspondant afin de produire une fronce lors d'une rotation sur deux du rouleau de matrice, chacun des rouleaux de base présentant une circonférence inférieure à celle du rouleau de matrice correspondant.
