Title
(EN) MEMBER AND METHOD FOR FORMING SEALED PACKAGES OF POURABLE FOOD PRODUCTS FROM A TUBE OF PACKAGING MATERIAL
(FR) ELÉMENT ET PROCÉDÉ POUR FORMER DES PAQUETS SCELLÉS DE PRODUITS ALIMENTAIRE VERSABLES DANS UN TUBE DE MATÉRIAU DE CONDITIONNEMENT
Abstract
(EN)
A forming member (20) for controlling the volume of packages (3) of pourable food products formed from a tube (2) of packaging material and sealed at a number of sections of the tube (2) crosswise to an axis (A) of the tube (2); the forming member (20) having : a main wall (25) which cooperates cyclically with a first portion (35) of the tube (2) extending between two consecutive sections; and at least one flap (26) extending alongside the wall (25). The flap (26) is movable, with respect to the wall (25), between a first position, in which it cooperates with a second portion (36) of the tube (2), extending between the two consecutive sections, to control the volume, between the two consecutive sections, of the package (3) being formed, and a second position, in which it is detached from the second portion (36).
(FR)
L'invention porte sur un élément de formation (20) servant à commander le volume de paquets (3) de produits alimentaires versables dans un tube (2) de matériau de conditionnement. Les paquets sont scellés à plusieurs sections du tube (2), perpendiculairement à un axe (A) du tube (2). L'élément de formation (20) comporte une paroi principale (25) qui coopère de manière cyclique avec une première partie (35) du tube (2) s'étendant entre deux sections consécutives; et au moins un volet (26) s'étendant le long de la paroi (25), mobile par rapport à la paroi (25), et pouvant passer d'une première position dans laquelle le volet coopère avec une seconde partie (36) du tube (2) s'étendant entre les deux sections consécutives pour commander le volume compris entre les deux sections consécutives de l'emballage (3) en cours de formation; et une seconde position dans laquelle le volet est détaché de la seconde partie (36).
