Title (EN) SEALING DEVICE
(FR) DISPOSITIF DE SCELLEMENT ÉTANCHE
Abstract:
(EN) The present invention relates to a sealing device (1, 101, 201) for sealing a packaging material (7, 107) enclosing a filling material (29) to provide portion-packed oral pouched snuff products (43). The sealing device comprises an anvil (3, 103, 203) with a first operation surface (11, 111, 211) and a sonotrode (5, 105, 205) with a second operation surface (13, 113), the anvil and the sonotrode being arranged to allow passage of the packaging material therebetween, the second operation surface being located opposite the first operation surface during operation of the sealing device. The first and second operation surfaces are arranged to weld a first portion (7a, 107a) of the packaging material to a second portion (7b, 107b) of the packaging material. At least one of the first or second operation surfaces comprises a first welding surface (11a, 111a) defining a first extension plane and a second welding surface (11b, 111b) defining a second extension plane, which has a different orientation than the first extension plane. The first and second welding surfaces are partly delimited by a cutting edge (15, 115, 215) having an extension direction along the first and second welding surfaces, such that the cutting edge separates the first welding surface from the second welding surface. The present invention further relates to an arrangement (19) for manufacturing of portion-packed oral pouched snuff products, which arrangement comprises such a sealing device. The present invention also relates to a method for portion-packing of an oral pouched snuff product.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un dispositif de scellement étanche (1, 101, 201) qui permet de sceller hermétiquement un matériau d'emballage (7, 107) enfermant un matériau de remplissage (29) pour fournir des produits à priser oraux, ensachés et empaquetés en portions (43). Le dispositif de scellement étanche comprend une enclume (3, 103, 203) ayant une première surface fonctionnelle (11, 111, 211) et une sonotrode (5, 105, 205) ayant une seconde surface fonctionnelle (13, 113), l'enclume et la sonotrode étant agencées de façon à permettre le passage du matériau d'emballage entre elles, la seconde surface fonctionnelle étant disposée à l'opposé de la première surface fonctionnelle pendant le fonctionnement du dispositif de scellement étanche. Les première et seconde surfaces fonctionnelles sont agencées de façon à souder une première partie (7a, 107a) du matériau d'emballage à une seconde partie du matériau d'emballage (7b, 107b). La première et/ou la seconde surface fonctionnelle comprend une première surface de soudage (11a, 111a) délimitant un premier plan d'extension et une seconde surface de soudage (11b, 111b) délimitant un second plan d'extension, dont l'orientation est différente de celle du premier plan d'extension. Les première et seconde surfaces de soudage sont partiellement délimitées par un bord de coupe (15, 115, 215) ayant une direction d'extension le long des première et seconde surfaces de soudage, de telle sorte que le bord de coupe sépare la première surface de soudage de la seconde surface de soudage. La présente invention concerne également un agencement (19) pour la fabrication de produits à priser oraux, ensachés et empaquetés en portions, ledit agencement comportant un tel dispositif de scellement étanche. La présente invention concerne également un procédé pour l'empaquetage par portions de produit à priser oral, ensaché.
