Title (EN) APPARATUS FOR CLOSING A BOX
(FR) APPAREIL PERMETTANT DE FERMER UNE BOÎTE
Abstract:
(EN) An apparatus for closing a box (200) comprises: - a first folding equipment (42) and a second folding equipment (46) located along a feed path and active on four upper flaps (206, 207, 208, 209) of each box (200) to fold down the four upper flaps (206, 207, 208, 209); - a third folding equipment (49) located along the feed path to act on an extension flap (210) protruding from an upper flap (206) of one the four upper flaps (206, 207, 208, 209), so as to fold the extension flap (210) at an angle with respect to the upper flap (206); - a closing equipment (52) located at, or downstream of, the third folding equipment (49) to completely close the upper flap (206) by inserting the folded extension flap (210) into a closing slit (213); - a fourth folding equipment (54) located along the feed path to fold a stabilizing flap (212) in a position allowing the stabilizing flap (212) to be partially inserted in a stabilizing slit (214), so as to stabilize the box (200) in a closed configuration.
(FR) L'invention concerne un appareil permettant de fermer une boîte (200) comprenant : - un premier équipement de pliage (42) et un deuxième équipement de pliage (46) situés le long d'un trajet d'alimentation et actifs sur quatre rabats supérieurs (206, 207, 208, 209) de chaque boîte (200) pour replier les quatre rabats supérieurs (206, 207, 208, 209); - un troisième équipement de pliage (49) situé le long du trajet d'alimentation pour agir sur un rabat d'extension (210) faisant saillie à partir d'un rabat supérieur (206) d'un des quatre rabats supérieurs (206, 207, 208, 209), de façon à plier le rabat d'extension (210) à un angle par rapport au rabat supérieur (206); - un équipement de fermeture (52) situé au niveau, ou en aval, du troisième équipement de pliage (49) pour fermer complètement le rabat supérieur (206) en insérant le rabat d'extension plié (210) dans une fente de fermeture (213); - un quatrième équipement de pliage (54) situé le long du trajet d'alimentation pour plier un rabat de stabilisation (212) dans une position permettant au rabat de stabilisation (212) d'être partiellement inséré dans une fente de stabilisation (214), de manière à stabiliser la boîte (200) dans une configuration fermée.
