Title: APPARATUS AND METHOD FOR FORMING THE GABLE SURFACES OF PACKS WITH A SLOPING GABLE
Abstract:
An illustration and a description are given for an apparatus (24) for forming the gable surfaces of packs (16) with a sloping gable, comprising: a conveying device (19) having compartments (20) fastened thereon for the purpose of accommodating packs (16), at least one gable folder (25) for folding a fin seam (17) in the gable region of the packs (16), and at least two lug folders (26A, 26B) for folding lugs (15) in the gable region of the packs (16). In order to make it possible for the gable to be formed quickly and reliably even in the case of packs (16) with a sloping gable, it is proposed that both the gable folder (25) and the lug folders (26A, 26B) are mounted in a movable manner relative to the conveying device (19) and the packs (16) transported thereby. An illustration and a description are additionally given for a method for forming the gable surfaces of packs (16) with a sloping gable.
