Title
(EN) FILM SECURING APPARATUS AND METHOD
(FR) APPAREIL ET PROCÉDÉ DE FIXATION DE FILM
Abstract
(EN)
Systems, apparatuses, and methods to secure a film to a container are provided. An example sealing device utilizes film from a supply of film to seal a lid onto a container. Various sizes of containers are usable with some example sealing devices. Additional features, such as printing on the film and piercing the film for ventilation and/or insertion of a straw are contemplated. One or more markings along the film may be utilized for confirming that an approved film has been loaded into the sealing device. In response, various components or features of the sealing device may be appropriately enabled or disabled. The one or more markings may also be utilized to convey data to the sealing device regarding the installed film, such as for improved operation thereof.

L'invention concerne des systèmes, des appareils et des procédés qui permettent de fixer un film à un récipient. Un exemple de dispositif d'étanchéité utilise un film provenant d'une alimentation de film pour sceller un couvercle sur un récipient. Diverses tailles de récipient peuvent être utilisées avec certains exemples de dispositifs d'étanchéité. Des caractéristiques supplémentaires, telles que l'impression sur le film et le perçage du film pour la ventilation et/ou l'insertion d'une paille sont envisagées. Un ou plusieurs repères le long du film peuvent être utilisés pour confirmer qu'un film approuvé a été chargé dans le dispositif d'étanchéité. En réponse, divers composants ou caractéristiques du dispositif d'étanchéité peuvent être activés ou désactivés de manière appropriée. Le ou les repères peuvent également être utilisés pour transporter des données vers le dispositif d'étanchéité concernant le film installé, par exemple pour un fonctionnement amélioré de celui-ci.
