Title (EN) PRODUCT PACKAGING APPARATUS
(FR) APPAREIL D'EMBALLAGE DE PRODUITS
Abstract:
(EN) Various embodiments of a product packing apparatus are disclosed. Embodiments may include a rotating head assembly configured to selectively rotate all or a portion of unique feed lines, to generate a desired packaging configuration. For example, embodiments of the present approach may be used to package bottles or cans of various beverage varieties. A plurality of feedlines may direct beverage varieties towards a rotating head assembly. Each feedline may deliver a specific beverage variety. Depending on the desired packaging configuration, some feedlines may divert around the rotating head assembly, whereas others deliver beverage varieties in linear arrays to the rotating head assembly. The rotating head assembly rotates a select portion of the beverage varieties to generate a desired packaging configuration of beverage varieties.
(FR) Différents modes de réalisation de l'invention concernent un appareil d'emballage de produits. Des modes de réalisation peuvent comprendre un ensemble de tête rotative configuré de façon à faire tourner de façon sélective tout ou une partie de lignes d'alimentation uniques, afin de générer une configuration d'emballage souhaitée. Par exemple, des modes de réalisation de la présente invention peuvent être utilisés pour emballer des bouteilles ou des boîtes de différentes variétés de boissons. Une pluralité de lignes d'alimentation peuvent diriger des variétés de boissons vers un ensemble de tête rotative. Chaque ligne d'alimentation peut délivrer une variété de boissons spécifique. En fonction de la configuration d'emballage souhaitée, certaines lignes d'alimentation peuvent effectuer une déviation autour de l'ensemble de tête rotative, tandis que d'autres délivrent des variétés de boissons par groupements linéaires à l'ensemble de tête rotative. L'ensemble de tête rotative fait tourner une partie sélectionnée des variétés de boissons pour générer une configuration d'emballage souhaitée de variétés de boissons.
