Title
(EN) APPARATUS AND METHOD FOR PRODUCING A ROD OF AEROSOL-GENERATING MATERIAL
(FR) APPAREIL ET PROCÉDÉ DE PRODUCTION D'UNE TIGE DE MATÉRIAU DE GÉNÉRATION D’AÉROSOL
Abstract
(EN)
Apparatus for producing a rod of aerosol-generating material is disclosed. The apparatus comprises a first feed device adapted to supply a first web of aerosol- generating material to a processing unit, a second feed device adapted to supply a second web of aerosol-generating material, and a web changeover unit arranged to change supply of aerosol-generating material to the processing unit from the first web of aerosol-generating material to the second web of aerosol-generating material. The web changeover unit is configured to position a leading edge of the second web of aerosol-generating material adjacent to a trailing edge of the first web of aerosol- generating material upstream of the processing unit during changeover from the first web of aerosol-generating material to the second web of aerosol-generating material. A method of producing a rod of aerosol-generating material is also disclosed.

L'invention concerne un appareil destiné à la production d'une tige de matériau de génération d’aérosol. L'appareil comprend un premier dispositif d'introduction conçu pour fournir une première bande de matériau de génération d'aérosol à une unité de traitement, un second dispositif d'introduction conçu pour fournir une seconde bande de matériau de génération d'aérosol, et une unité de permutation de bandes agencée pour changer le matériau de génération d'aérosol fourni à l'unité de traitement en remplaçant la première bande de matériau de génération d'aérosol par la seconde bande de matériau de génération d'aérosol. L'unité de permutation de bandes est conçue pour positionner un bord d'attaque de la seconde bande de matériau de génération d'aérosol adjacente à un bord de fuite de la première bande de matériau de génération d'aérosol en amont de l'unité de traitement pendant le remplacement de la première bande de matériau de génération d'aérosol par la seconde bande de matériau de génération d'aérosol. L'invention concerne également un procédé de conditionnement d'une tige de matériau de génération d’aérosol.
