Title "Resealable Spout for a Packaging, and a Mandrel of a Rotating Mandrel Wheel of a Packaging Machine to Mount Said Spout, and a Combination of a Spout and a Mandrel" 5 Technical Field
The present invention relates to a resealable spout for a packaging, a mandrel on a rotating mandrel wheel of a packaging machine with a free end to mount a matching spout, and a combination of a resealable spout for packaging and a mandrel of a 10 rotating mandrel wheel of a packaging machine. The resealable spout may particularly be for composite packaging for liquid foodstuffs.
Where the following text refers simply to a resealable "spout", then this is normally referring to a combined 'opening and pouring element' that is attached to a packaging, 15 such as a composite packaging for drinks, in order to open them, to make pouring easier and to reseal them, to protect the product and the flavourings etc., that it contains, from oxidation.
Background 20
Any discussion of background art, any reference to a document and any reference to information that is known, which is contained in this specification, is provided only for the purpose of facilitating an understanding of the background art to the present invention, and is not an acknowledgement or admission that any of that material 25 forms part of the common general knowledge in Australia or any other country as at the priority date of the application in relation to which this specification has been filed. 2013331990 17 Aug 2017 -2 -
Resealable spouts for packaging, particularly composite packaging for liquid foodstuffs, are common in a large number of variants. Composite packaging refers to packaging that is made from a single packaging material consisting of multiple layered 5 materials bound together, such as cardboard and plastic. Liquid foodstuffs might be, for example, drinks, soups, yoghurt or similar. A suitable resealable spout is known from DE 10 2010 048415 A1 of the applicant. There, a spout is mounted on the correspondingly shaped upper end of a mandrel on a 10 mandrel wheel of a sealing machine in order to connect it to a matching packaging sleeve, before the packaging sleeve is put onto the mandrel and the two elements are sealed together. In order to fit it onto the mandrel, the said spout has several projections that fit into corresponding grooves in the mandrel. To make sure there is a firm grip, the projections on the inside of the flange of the spout are fairly long and the 15 corresponding grooves in the mandrel are relatively deep.
This is a disadvantage, as the relatively deep recesses of the mandrel can cause problems when the spouts sealed with the packaging sleeve are released by removal from the mandrel. But reducing the depth of the recesses proved not to provide a 20 satisfactory solution, as the spout did not always have a firm enough grip on the mandrel. In addition, thorough cleaning of these hollows can only be ensured at a relatively great effort. Perfect cleaning is, however, absolutely essential here, as the projections of the spout come into contact with the inside of the packaging which is then filled with product, and any dirt, bacteria etc. located there would cause 25 contamination of the contents of the packaging. DE 10 2010 050 502 A1 from the applicant describes a process for the production of a composite packaging with a standard form of a spout using a mandrel wheel to seal it with the packaging sleeve. Therein, it is shown how the spout is mounted on the 30 mandrel. 2013331990 17 Aug 2017 -3-
From JP 2009-039980 (A), it is also known to positively/frictionally connect spouts with a circular cross-section temporarily with a mandrel during the production of the packaging, with the round retaining element on the mandrel having a number of recesses arranged regularly on its circumference to reduce the force required when 5 connecting or separating the spout with the mandrel.
In addition, it is known from WO 2010/106327 A1 to temporarily fix a spout on a mandrel before it is sealed together with the packaging. Therefore, the mandrel has a circumferential rib, which approximately corresponds to the internal diameter of the 10 spout, that in turn interacts with a number of projections in the shape of a bar and arranged around the inside of the spout, such that axial pushing of the spout onto the mandrel creates a positive catch mechanism. This solution is extensive, as each spout has to be shaped with the necessary projections. 15 Summary of Invention
The present invention, therefore, addresses the problem of designing and developing the resealable spout as mentioned initially and described above, and a corresponding mandrel in such a way that a reliable connection of the resealable spout is achieved 20 when sealed with the packaging sleeve on a mandrel of a mandrel wheel also when moving the mandrel to actually create the seal, and that subsequently an easy removal from the mandrel is possible. In addition, it is desirable to be able to clean the mandrel thoroughly. 25 In accordance with one aspect of the present invention, there is provided a resealable spout, for a packaging, having a base body that has a pouring tube that is closed by a screw cap and a flange with polyhedral surfaces to connect to a packaging sleeve, wherein the base body has a square base plate and the flange of the base body is shaped like a truncated pyramid, and wherein the spout has a circumferential 30 retaining element on the inside of the base body to enable a positive-locking 2013331990 17 Aug 2017 -4- connection with a mandrel of a packaging machine, and wherein the circumferential retaining element runs along the area of the lower edge of the inside of the flange.
In accordance with another aspect of the present invention, there is provided a 5 mandrel on a rotating mandrel wheel of a packing machine with a free end to mount a corresponding resealable spout, wherein the mandrel is polyhedral in a mounting area of the spout, and has a circumferential retaining element to ensure a positivelocking connection with the spout. 10 In accordance with another aspect of the present invention, there is provided a combination of a resealable spout for packaging and a mandrel of a rotating mandrel wheel of a packaging machine that is used during the production process of the packaging to make a positive-locking connection with the spout, wherein the spout and the mandrel have circumferential retaining elements that match each other to 15 provide a positive-locking connection.
Providing the base body of the spout of the present invention with a square base plate and the flange shaped like a truncated pyramid, allows a particularly even distribution of the forces between the packaging sleeve and the spout. 20
The present invention described herein provides that, when producing the composite packaging from a spout and a packaging sleeve, the spout can be connected positively to the mandrel in a way that is adequately firm, to allow the mandrel to be moved into the fixing position in the packaging sleeve. 25
It has been shown surprisingly that a circumferential retaining element enables a secure and defined temporary retaining and smooth removal of the mandrel. Due to the considerable extension of the area of contact between the spout and the mandrel, the retaining element only requires a minimal depth, which means that the effort of 30 cleaning the mandrel is reduced as well. 2013331990 17 Aug 2017 -5-
According to a further teaching of the present invention described herein, the circumferential retaining element of the resealable spout runs along the area of the lower edge of the inside of the flange. This is of benefit both for the manufacture of the spout in an injection mould and for the processing of the mandrel. 5
According to an embodiment of the resealable spout of the present invention, the circumferential retaining element of the flange is in the form of a projection. Alternatively, the circumferential retaining element may be in the form of a groove. 10 According to an embodiment of the invention, the base body of the resealable spout is closed below the pouring tube by means of a supporting wall, and has a circumferential weakened area. This means that the opening can take place by means of an opening element (such as a pull ring or cutting element, both of which are known per se) without requiring much force. 15
Within the scope of an embodiment of the invention, it is also possible that the base body of the resealable spout has an opening concentric to the pouring tube.
In any case, according to an embodiment of the invention, it is of benefit if the base 20 body of the resealable spout has a barrier foil below the supporting wall or the opening. This means that a barrier to the entry of oxygen of the packaging is achieved also in the area of the spout. In an embodiment of the invention, the flange has the barrier foil. 25 According to an embodiment(s) of the mandrel of the present invention, the circumferential retaining element of the mandrel is in the shape (i.e. form) of a groove - or alternatively, in the shape (i.e. form) of a projection.
According to an embodiment of the mandrel of the present invention, the mandrel is 30 shaped like a truncated pyramid in the mounting area of the spout. The exact 2013331990 17 Aug 2017 -6- geometric shape here preferably matches to the shape of the flange on the spouts to be processed.
If the resealable spout includes a barrier foil below the supporting wall of the base 5 body, then it is useful if the mandrel has a large enough recess to hold the barrier foil. This means that during the sealing process of the packaging sleeve, there is adequate protection for the barrier foil from thermal or mechanical damage.
With regard to the combination of a resealable spout and a corresponding mandrel of 10 the present invention, the circumferential retaining elements are preferably polygonal. It is alternatively possible that the circumferential retaining elements are circular. The exact form of the retaining elements here also depends on the geometrical shape of the spouts to be processed. 15 Brief Description of Drawings
The present invention is described in more details below, by way of example only, with reference to the accompanying drawings. In the drawings, 20 Fig. 1 shows an embodiment of a resealable spout according to an aspect of the invention in a perspective view from above,
Fig. 2 shows the resealable spout from Fig. 1 in a perspective view from below, 25 Fig. 3 shows an embodiment of the upper part of a mandrel of a rotating mandrel wheel to mount the resealable spout, according to another aspect of the present invention, in perspective view from above,
Fig. 4 shows the resealable spout from Fig. 1 in a vertical cross-section (without a 30 cutting element), and 2013331990 17 Aug 2017 - 7 -
Fig. 5 shows the mandrel from Fig. 3 in a vertical cross-section.
Description of Embodiments 5 Fig. 1 shows a preferred embodiment of a spout according to the invention in a perspective view seen diagonally from above. In the shown and in this respect preferred embodiment, the spout has a base body 1 and a screw cap 2. The screw cap 2 sits on a pouring tube 3 (only visible in Figs. 2 and 4). The base body 1 has a circumferential flange 4 shaped like a truncated pyramid. The shape of the flange 4 is 10 preferably adapted to suit the shape and particularly the angle of inclination of the gabled area of the packaging sleeve to be sealed to the spout.
The bent surfaces of the flange 4 have ribs 5 that on the one hand serve to reinforce the flange and on the other hand are intended to provide a better connection to the 15 gabled surfaces of the packaging sleeve during the sealing with the flange 4. In each corner, there is a wing-shaped piece 6 attached to the flange 4. These attachments 6 also help to improve the connection between the gabled area of the packaging sleeve and flange 4 of the spout. 20 According to the spout shown in Fig. 1, an original seal 7 with a (not further described) material link designed as predetermined breaking-point connects the base body 1 with the screw cap 2. When first opened, the material link is destroyed, so that a consumer can easily detect whether a packaging with this type of spout has been opened already. 25
Fig. 2 shows a spout according to the invention in a perspective view seen diagonally from below. It can be seen that the area of the lower edge of the inside of the flange 4 is surrounded by a retaining element 8. This serves to ensure a positive-locking connection during the production of the packaging with the free end of a mandrel on a 30 mandrel wheel. It can also be seen that the lower side of the pouring tube 3 is closed by a supporting wall 9 that forms one piece with the base body 1. 2013331990 17 Aug 2017 -8-
In the shown and preferred embodiment, the base body 1 also has a weakened area 10 surrounding the pouring tube 3 concentrically that makes the pressing in and cutting out of a (not visible) cutting element in the inside of the pouring tube 3 substantially 5 easier by making the material weaker at this point. The exact form of the weakened area 10 can be seen particularly clearly in the vertical cross-section of the spout in Fig. 4. A barrier foil 11 below the base body 1 in what will be the opening area provides 10 adequate shelf-life and flavour protection for the filled product.
In Figs. 3 and 5, the upper part of a mandrel 12 is shown that matches the previously described spout. The circumferential groove 13 can clearly be seen as a complement to the circumferential projection 8 of the spout. As explained above, although not 15 shown, the invention's teaching also includes a mandrel where the retaining element is shaped as a circumferential projection that matches a spout that has a circumferential retaining element in the form of a groove.
Finally, it can also be seen from Figs. 3 and 5 that the flattened upper side of the 20 mandrel 12 includes a recess 14 to hold the barrier foil 11 that protects it from damage during the sealing process.
Whilst one or more preferred embodiments of the present invention have been herein before described, the scope of the present invention is not limited to those specific 25 embodiment(s), and may be embodied in other ways, as will be apparent to a person skilled in the art.
Modifications and variations such as would be apparent to a person skilled in the art are deemed to be within the scope of the present invention. 30 2013331990 17 Aug 2017
