Title
(EN) APPARATUS AND METHOD FOR MANUFACTURING TOBACCO INDUSTRY PRODUCTS
(FR) APPAREIL ET PROCÉDÉ DE FABRICATION DE PRODUITS DE L'INDUSTRIE DU TABAC
Abstract
(EN) Embodiments disclosed herein relate to an apparatus (1) for use in the manufacture of tobacco industry products. The apparatus (1) comprises a rolling unit (9) comprising: • a rotatable drum (14) having a plurality of flutes (18) formed in a curved outer surface (17) of the drum (14) to receive axially- aligned components (5,6) of a tobacco industry product; • a roll hand (15) having a contact surface (34) facing and spaced from the outer surface (17) of the drum (14) to define a space, between the contact surface (34) and the outer surface (17), within which space components of a tobacco industry product are rollable upon rotation of the drum (14); and • a kicker bar (16) disposed adjacent to the roll hand (15) and having a contact edge (36) facing and spaced from the outer surface (17) of the drum (17). At least one of the roll hand contact surface (34), kicker bar contact edge (36) and drum outer surface (17) includes a groove (31,32,33) extending in a substantially circumferential direction of the drum (14) and configured to least partially receive one or more of the tobacco industry product components as the drum (14) rotates.
(FR) Des modes de réalisation de l'invention concernent un appareil (1) destiné à être utilisé dans la fabrication de produits de l'industrie du tabac. L'appareil (1) comprend une unité de roulage (9) comprenant : • un tambour rotatif (14) comportant une pluralité de cannelures (18) formées dans une surface extérieure incurvée (17) du tambour (14) pour recevoir des composants axialement alignés (5, 6) d'un produit de l'industrie du tabac ; • une main de roulage (15) comportant une surface de contact (34) tournée vers la surface extérieure (17) du tambour (14) et espacée de celle-ci de façon à définir un espace entre la surface de contact (34) et la surface extérieure (17), dans lequel des composants d'un produit de l'industrie du tabac peuvent être roulés lors de la rotation du tambour (14) ; et • une barre de poussée (16) placée en position adjacente à la main de roulage (15) et comportant un bord de contact (36) tourné vers la surface extérieure (17) du tambour (17) et espacé de celle-ci. Au moins l'un de la surface de contact (34) de la main de roulage, du bord de contact (36) de la barre de poussée et de la surface extérieure (17) du tambour comprend une rainure (31, 32, 33) s'étendant dans une direction essentiellement circonférentielle du tambour (14) et configurée pour recevoir au moins partiellement un ou plusieurs des composants du produit de l'industrie du tabac lorsque le tambour (14) tourne.
