Title: SYSTEM FOR CLOSING CONTAINERS BY MEANS OF CLOSING ELEMENTS OBTAINED FROM A CONTINUOUS SHEET OF MATERIAL FOR A DOUBLE PITCH PACKAGING MACHINE
Abstract:
System (1) for closing containers (C) by means of closing elements obtained from a continuous sheet (S) of material, comprising: first conveying means (2), for conveying rows (R1, R2) of containers (C) along a double pitch path (P1) for feeding containers, in a first direction (D1); and second conveying means (3), for conveying the continuous sheet along a path (P2); and a first closing device (41) and a second closing device (42), for removing closing elements (E) from the sheet (S) and applying the same to the rows (R1, R2) of containers (C). In particular, the second conveying means (3) comprise a first conveying assembly (32, 33) arranged so that the continuous sheet is conveyed along a first portion (P21) and along a second portion (P22) of the path (P2), parallel to the first direction (D1); and a second conveying assembly (31, 34, 35, 36) arranged so that the continuous sheet is conveyed along a third portion (P23) of the path (P2), interposed between the first portion (P21) and the second portion (P22), which develops in a second direction (D2), inclined with respect to the first direction (D1). The first conveying assembly (32, 33) and the second conveying assembly (31, 34, 35, 36) develop on different lying planes; and the first closing device (41) and the second closing device (42) are arranged at the first portion (P21) and at the second portion (P22) of the path (P2).
