Title
(EN) METHODS AND APPARATUS FOR EVALUATING PACKAGING MATERIALS AND DETERMINING WRAP SETTINGS FOR WRAPPING MACHINES
(FR) PROCÉDÉS ET APPAREIL PERMETTANT D'ÉVALUER DES MATÉRIAUX DE CONDITIONNEMENT ET DE DÉTERMINER DES PARAMÈTRES D'EMBALLAGE POUR DES MACHINES À EMBALLER
Abstract
(EN)
A method of determining a wrap force or payout percentage at which to wrap a load (12) with packaging material (16) may include dispensing packaging material (16). The method may also include forming a tear (28) in a portion of the packaging material (16). The method may further include identifying a first payout percentage at which the tear (28) exhibits a first behavior. The method may also include identifying a second payout percentage at which the tear (28) exhibits a second behavior. The method may further include selecting a third payout percentage between the first payout percentage and the second payout percentage, for wrapping the load (12).
(FR)
La présente invention se rapporte à un procédé permettant de déterminer une force d'emballage, ou un pourcentage de dévidement, avec laquelle ou selon lequel on peut emballer une charge (12) avec un matériau de conditionnement (16). Ledit procédé consiste à distribuer un matériau de conditionnement (16). Le procédé peut également consister à former une déchirure (28) dans une partie du matériau de conditionnement (16). En outre, le procédé peut consister à identifier un premier pourcentage de dévidement auquel la déchirure (28) présente un premier comportement. Le procédé peut également consister à identifier un deuxième pourcentage de dévidement auquel la déchirure (28) présente un deuxième comportement. En outre, le procédé peut consister à sélectionner un troisième pourcentage de dévidement qui se situe entre le premier pourcentage de dévidement et le deuxième pourcentage de dévidement pour emballer la charge (12).
