Title: TOOLING FOR MANUFACTURING A UNIT DOSE POUCH
Abstract:
Tooling for manufacturing one or more unit dose pouches including a mold, with a cavity formed within the mold and a divider removably fixed within the cavity to vary the volume of the cavity. The divider includes a sealing surface for sealing material disposed in the cavity. The sealing surface may extend between the walls of the cavities to create a multiple compartment unit dose. Alternatively, the sealing surface may form a decorative seal pattern in the pouch without separating the unit dose into compartments. The removably fixed divider may be replaced with other dividers having different sealing surfaces without the need for the user to change the mold or cavity itself.
