Title (EN) STATION FOR FEEDING CLOSING SEALS AND METHOD OF SEALING CONTAINERS FOR A PACKAGING LINE
(FR) STATION D'ALIMENTATION DE JOINTS DE FERMETURE ET PROCÉDÉ DE SCELLEMENT DE CONTENANTS POUR UNE LIGNE D'EMBALLAGE
Abstract:
(EN) A station (9) for feeding closing seals (90) for containers, which comprises at least one fixed magazine of seals (901) which is provided with an outlet (902) from which the seals (90) can be taken individually, and which comprises a carousel for feeding seals (91) which can rotate with respect to a first central rotation axis (S1) and is provided with a plurality of pickers (92) which are radially spaced apart from the first rotation axis (S1). The pickers (92) are individually rotatable about a second rotation axis (S2) which is not parallel to the first axis (S1) of the carousel (91). During the rotation of the carousel (91), at least one picker (92) can rotate about the second axis (S2) from a position for taking the seal from the magazine (901) to a position for releasing the seal (90).
(FR) L'invention concerne une station (9) d'alimentation de joints de fermeture (90) pour des contenants, qui comprend au moins un distributeur fixe de joints d'étanchéité (901) qui est pourvu d'une sortie (902) à partir de laquelle les joints d'étanchéité (90) peuvent être pris individuellement, et qui comprend un carrousel pour alimenter des joints d'étanchéité (91) qui peut tourner par rapport à un premier axe de rotation central (S1) et qui est pourvu d'une pluralité d'éléments de prélèvement (92) qui sont radialement espacés du premier axe de rotation (S1). Les éléments de prélèvement (92) peuvent tourner individuellement autour d'un second axe de rotation (S2) qui n'est pas parallèle au premier axe (S1) du carrousel (91). Lors de la rotation du carrousel (91), au moins un élément de prélèvement (92) peut tourner autour du second axe (S2) à partir d'une position de prise du joint d'étanchéité depuis le distributeur (901) vers une position de libération du joint d'étanchéité (90).
