Title (EN) FILLING UNIT FOR A MANUFACTURING MACHINE FOR THE PRODUCTION OF DISPOSABLE CARTRIDGES FOR ELECTRONIC CIGARETTES
(FR) UNITÉ DE REMPLISSAGE POUR UNE MACHINE DE FABRICATION POUR LA PRODUCTION DE CARTOUCHES JETABLES POUR DES CIGARETTES ÉLECTRONIQUES
Abstract:
(EN) A filling unit (18) for a manufacturing machine (8) for the production of disposable cartridges (1) for electronic cigarettes; the filling unit (18) has: a cylindrical shaped tank (46) which is delimited, at the bottom, by a circular shaped base disc (50); a feeding duct (53), which feeds a flow of tobacco inside the tank (46); at least one group (48) of seats (49), each obtained in the base disc (50) and that is adapted to receive and contain a corresponding quantity (5) of tobacco; a transfer device (54), which is arranged in a fixed position at a filling station (S2) and cyclically transfers the quantities (5) of tobacco contained in the seats (49); a shutter element (61), which is movably mounted, is arranged below the group (48) of seats (49) and is provided, for each seat (49), with an air-permeable plug (62) and a through hole (63) arranged beside the plug (62); an actuator device (64) which, on the outside of the filling station (S2), keeps the shutter element (61) in a closing position, in which a corresponding plug (62) is arranged below each seat (49) so as to close the seat (49) at the bottom and prevent the descent of the tobacco, and, in the filling station (S2), keeps the shutter element (61) in an opening position, in which a corresponding through hole (63) is arranged below each seat (49) so as to allow the descent of the tobacco; and a cleaning device (110), which cyclically cleans the air-permeable plugs (62) before the seats (49) are filled with new quantities (5) of tobacco.
(FR) Unité de remplissage (18) pour une machine de fabrication (8) pour la production de cartouches jetables (1) pour des cigarettes électroniques ; l'unité de remplissage (18) comprend : un réservoir de forme cylindrique (46) qui est délimité, au fond, par un disque de base de forme circulaire (50) ; un conduit d'alimentation (53), qui alimente un flux de tabac à l'intérieur du réservoir (46) ; au moins un groupe (48) de sièges (49), chacune obtenu dans le disque de base (50) et qui est conçu pour recevoir et contenir une quantité correspondante (5) de tabac ; un dispositif de transfert (54), qui est agencé dans une position fixe au niveau d'une station de remplissage (S2) et transfère cycliquement les quantités (5) de tabac contenues dans les sièges (49) ; un élément obturateur (61), qui est monté de manière mobile, est disposé sous le groupe (48) de sièges (49) et est pourvu, pour chaque siège (49), d'un bouchon perméable à l'air (62) et d'un trou traversant (63) disposé à côté du bouchon (62) ; un dispositif actionneur (64) qui, à l'extérieur de la station de remplissage (S2), maintient l'élément obturateur (61) dans une position de fermeture, dans laquelle un bouchon correspondant (62) est disposé en dessous de chaque siège (49) de manière à fermer le siège (49) au fond et à empêcher la descente du tabac, et, dans la station de remplissage (S2), maintient l'élément d'obturation (61) dans une position d'ouverture, dans laquelle un trou traversant correspondant (63) est disposé au-dessous de chaque siège (49) de manière à permettre la descente du tabac ; et un dispositif de nettoyage (110), qui nettoie cycliquement les bouchons perméables à l'air (62) avant que les sièges (49) soient remplis de nouvelles quantités (5) de tabac.
