Title (EN) SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR PRINTING ON CHEWING GUM
(FR) SYSTÈME ET PROCÉDÉ POUR L'IMPRESSION SUR UNE GOMME À MÂCHER
Abstract:
(EN) A method for applying print to at least one chewing gum surface, the method including forming a chewing gum composition into at least one chewing gum sheet having at least one printable surface, the chewing gum sheet having a desirable thickness, providing a print roller, transporting the at least one chewing gum sheet towards the print roller via a transporting surface, providing a gap between the print roller and the transporting surface, the thickness of the at least one chewing gum sheet being greater than a height of the gap, moving the at least one chewing gum sheet through the gap, printing indicia on the chewing gum sheet via the print roller during the moving of the at least one chewing gum sheet through the gap, and compressing the at least one chewing gum sheet during the moving of the at least one chewing gum sheet through the gap, the compressing occurring simultaneously with the printing.
(FR) L'invention porte sur un procédé pour appliquer une impression sur au moins une surface de gomme à mâcher, lequel procédé met en œuvre la formation d'une composition de gomme à mâcher sous la forme d'au moins une feuille de gomme à mâcher ayant au moins une surface imprimable, la feuille de gomme à mâcher ayant une épaisseur souhaitable, la disposition d'un rouleau d'impression, le transport de la ou des feuilles de gomme à mâcher vers le rouleau d'impression par l'intermédiaire d'une surface de transport, la réalisation d'un espace entre le rouleau d'impression et la surface de transport, l'épaisseur de la ou des feuilles de gomme à mâcher étant supérieure à une hauteur de l'espace, le déplacement de la ou des feuilles de gomme à mâcher à travers l'espace, l'impression d'indices sur la feuille de gomme à mâcher par l'intermédiaire du rouleau d'impression pendant le déplacement de la ou des feuilles de gomme à mâcher à travers l'espace, et la compression de la ou des feuilles de gomme à mâcher pendant le déplacement de la ou des feuilles de gomme à mâcher à travers l'espace, la compression se produisant simultanément à l'impression.
