Title
(EN) A METERING ROLLER FOR AN INK STATION ASSEMBLY OF A DECORATOR AND A METHOD OF DECORATING A CONTAINER WITH THE DECORATION
(FR) ROULEAU DOSEUR POUR ENSEMBLE DE STATION D’ENCRE D’UN DISPOSITIF DE DÉCORATION ET PROCÉDÉ DE DÉCORATION D’UN RÉCIPIENT AVEC LA DÉCORATION
Abstract
(EN)
An apparatus and methods of decorating exterior surfaces of metallic containers are provided. More specifically, the present disclosure provides a novel metering roller for an inking assembly of a decorator. An adjustment mechanism is operable to move the metering roller to a first ink transfer position during a decoration run. In the first ink transfer position, the metering roller receives ink from an ink roller without contacting the ink roller. In one embodiment, during the production run, the metering roller is in contact with and transfers ink to a transfer roller. When the decoration run stops, the adjustment mechanism can move the metering roller to a second dwell position such that the metering roller does not receive ink from the ink roller.
(FR)
La présente invention concerne un appareil et des procédés de décoration de surfaces extérieures de récipients métalliques. Plus spécifiquement, la présente invention concerne un nouveau rouleau doseur pour un ensemble d’encrage d’un dispositif de décoration. Un mécanisme de réglage peut être utilisé pour déplacer le rouleau doseur vers une première position de transfert d’encre pendant un cycle de décoration. Dans la première position de transfert d’encre, le rouleau doseur reçoit de l’encre depuis un rouleau encreur sans entrer en contact avec le rouleau encreur. Dans un mode de réalisation, pendant le cycle de production, le rouleau doseur est en contact avec, et transfère de l’encre vers, un rouleau de transfert. Lorsque le cycle de décoration s’arrête, le mécanisme de réglage peut déplacer le rouleau doseur vers une deuxième position de maintien de sorte que le rouleau doseur ne reçoit pas d’encre depuis le rouleau encreur.
