Abstract: front page image
(EN)An apparatus for compressing a material such as a tampon or a pessary device, and a method of compressing a material such as a tampon or a pessary device are described. The apparatus can have a press unit support structure rotatable about a fixed axis. An axial direction press unit is associated with the press unit support structure. Second press unit is associated with the press unit support structure wherein the second press unit is one of a non-linear direction press unit or a press unit having a compression surface area which decreases with the movement of compression.
(FR)L'invention concerne un appareil de compression de matériau tel qu'un tampon ou un dispositif de pessaire, et un procédé de compression de matériau tel qu'un tampon ou un dispositif de pessaire. L'appareil peut avoir une structure de support d'unité de presse pouvant tourner autour d'un axe fixe. Une unité de presse de direction axiale est associée à la structure de support d'unité de presse. Une seconde unité de presse est associée à la structure de support d'unité de presse, la seconde unité de presse étant une unité de presse de direction non-linéaire et/ou une unité de presse ayant une surface de compression qui diminue avec le mouvement de compression.
