Title
(EN) AN INDUCTOR FOR TRANSVERSAL SEALING, A PACKAGING MACHINE COMPRSING THE INDUCTOR FOR TRANSVERSAL SEALING AND A METHOD THEREOF
(FR) INDUCTEUR POUR SCELLEMENT TRANSVERSAL, MACHINE D'EMBALLAGE COMPRENANT L'INDUCTEUR POUR SCELLEMENT TRANSVERSAL ET SON PROCÉDÉ
Abstract
(EN) An inductor (206) for transversal sealing of a tube (104) of packaging material (108) filled with food product. The inductor (206) comprising a main body (402) comprising a first and a second sealing surface (502a, 502b) arranged to face the packaging material (108) during a sealing state (S), a recess (504) provided in the main body (402) for receiving a knife (208) during a cutting state (C), wherein the first and second sealing surface (502a, 502b) are placed on opposite sides of the recess (504), and an electric conductor arrangement, provided in the main body (402), for inducing eddy currents in the packaging material (108) during the sealing state (S), wherein each of the first and second sealing surface (502a, 502b) comprises a top section (506), an inner sealing section (508) placed between the recess (504) and the top section (506), and an outer sealing section (510) placed between the top section (506) and an outer edge (512) of the inductor (206), and wherein the inner sealing section (508) is inclined towards the recess (504), and the outer sealing section (510) is inclined towards the outer edge (512), thereby providing for that product in the food product held inside the tube (104) is pushed away from a sealing band of the tube as the first and second sealing surfaces (502a, 502b) are pressed towards the sealing band.
(FR) Inducteur (206) destiné à sceller transversalement un tube (104) de matériau d'emballage (108) rempli de produit alimentaire. L'inducteur (206) comprenant un corps principal (402) comprenant des première et seconde surfaces de scellement (502a, 502b) agencées pour faire face au matériau d'emballage (108) au cours d'un état de scellement (S), un évidement (504) disposé dans le corps principal (402) destiné à recevoir un couteau (208) au cours d'un état de coupe (C), les première et seconde surfaces de scellement (502a, 502b) étant placées sur des côtés opposés de l'évidement (504), et un agencement de conducteur électrique, disposé dans le corps principal (402), destiné à induire des courants de Foucault dans le matériau d'emballage (108) au cours de l'état de scellement (S), les première et seconde surfaces de scellement (502a, 502b) comprenant une section supérieure (506), une section scellement interne (508) placée entre l'évidement (504) et la section supérieure (506), et une section scellement externe (510) placée entre la section supérieure (506) et un bord extérieur (512) de l'inducteur (206), et la section scellement interne (508) étant inclinée vers l'évidement (504) et la section scellement externe (510) étant inclinée vers le bord extérieur (512), ce qui permet d'écarter le produit dans le produit alimentaire contenu à l'intérieur du tube (104) d'une bande de scellement du tube lorsque les première et seconde surfaces de scellement (502a, 502b) sont pressées vers la bande de scellement.
