Title (EN) METHOD FOR ASSEMBLING A CARTRIDGE FOR A SMOKING ARTICLE
(FR) PROCÉDÉ D'ASSEMBLAGE D'UNE CARTOUCHE POUR UN ARTICLE POUR FUMEUR
Abstract:
(EN) The present disclosure relates to systems, apparatuses, and methods for assembling cartridges (200) for aerosol delivery devices (100). The cartridges may be assembled by transporting carriages between various substations at which parts are added to a base. In another assembly method, the base may be moved between a plurality of robots which direct the base downwardly into contact with components to couple the components therewith. An inspection system may inspect the cartridges at various stages of completion.
(FR) La présente invention concerne des systèmes, des appareils et des procédés pour assembler des cartouches pour dispositifs d'administration d'aérosol. Les cartouches peuvent être assemblées par transport de chariots entre diverses sous-stations au niveau desquelles des pièces sont ajoutées à une base. Dans un autre procédé d'assemblage, la base peut être déplacée entre une pluralité de robots qui dirigent la base vers le bas pour qu'elle entre en contact avec des composants afin de coupler les composants avec elle. Un système d'inspection peut inspecter les cartouches à différentes étapes d'avancement.
