Title (EN) STATION FOR SEALING THERMOFORMED CONTAINERS FOR PACKAGING LINES
(FR) STATION POUR SCELLER DES RÉCIPIENTS THERMOFORMÉS POUR DES LIGNES D'EMBALLAGE
Abstract:
(EN) A station (7) for sealing thermoformed containers for a packaging line, comprising a sealing carousel (71) which can rotate continuously about a central axis (H) which comprises a plurality of sealing heads (72) which are radially spaced apart from said central axis (H), each sealing head (72) being adapted to: - receive at least one container to be sealed at a first, input, peripheral region, which is outside the sealing carousel (71); - receive at least one closing seal at a second, input, peripheral region, which is outside the sealing carousel (71); - hold the closing seal (S) and the container during the rotation of the sealing carousel (71) and couple them together; - release the container complete with the closing seal at a third, output, peripheral region, which is outside the sealing carousel (71) and angularly spaced from the first and from the second region; the invention also relates to a method of sealing containers.
(FR) L'invention concerne une station (7) pour sceller des récipients thermoformés pour une ligne d'emballage, comprenant un carrousel de scellage (71) qui peut tourner en continu autour d'un axe central (H) qui comprend une pluralité de têtes de scellage (72) qui sont radialement espacés dudit axe central (H), chaque tête de scellage (72) étant conçue pour : - recevoir au moins un récipient à sceller au niveau d'une première région périphérique d'entrée, qui est à l'extérieur du carrousel de scellage (71); - recevoir au moins un joint de scellage de fermeture au niveau d'une seconde région périphérique d'entrée, qui est à l'extérieur du carrousel de scellage (71); - maintenir le joint de scellage de fermeture (S) et le récipient pendant la rotation du carrousel de scellage (71) et les coupler ensemble; - libérer le récipient complet avec le joint de scellage de fermeture au niveau d'une troisième région périphérique de sortie, qui est à l'extérieur du carrousel de scellage (71) et espacée angulairement de la première et de la seconde région; l'invention concerne également une méthode de scellage de récipients.
