Abstract

The present invention relates to a food processing and / or packaging machine having a pneumatic muscle.

Description

  • The The present invention relates to a processing and / or packaging machine, which has a pneumatic muscle.
  • at Food processing and / or packaging machines often need very high forces be used to perform certain functions. For example, at a form-fill-seal packaging machine, made with the packaging with a modified atmosphere be, holes be punched in the bottom foil. This was, especially in so-called hard plastic films previously only with a variety of individually driven stamps possible, which is comparatively expensive and therefore costly.
  • It Therefore, the object of the present invention, a food processing and / or Packaging machine available to provide that does not have the disadvantages of the prior art.
  • Is solved the task with a food processing and / or packaging machine, the having a pneumatic muscle.
  • It was for the expert very much astonishing and unexpected that with the food processing or packaging machine functions can be performed at the very high powers must be expended. The machine according to the invention is easy and inexpensive manufacture and operate.
  • A Food processing machine according to the invention is any Machine used to process food, especially meat becomes. By way of example only cutters, mixers, slicers, Meat reduction machines, for example wolves, breading devices, ovens, food-forming devices and the like. Other examples of food processing devices are machines for the production and packaging of sweets, especially lollipops, as well as machines for the production of shaped ones Sugar products, such as sugar cubes.
  • A Packaging machine according to the invention is for example a so-called form-fill-seal packaging machine, which will be explained below with reference to the figures, but also a tray sealer, in which a prefabricated packaging tray with a packaged goods filled and subsequently is sealed with a lidding film. Further examples of packaging machines are vertical or horizontal flowwrapper.
  • According to the invention all these machines put on a pneumatic muscle. A pneumatic Muscle in the sense of the invention is a Zugaktuator, the biological Muscle is modeled. It consists essentially of a contraction tube, For example, pressure-tight rubber, surrounded by solid fibers and the corresponding connection pieces. By increase the internal pressure, the hose expands in the circumferential direction. This results in a contraction movement in the longitudinal direction of the muscle. As a result, The pneumatic muscle may be considered as a kind of pneumatic spring which contracts as pressure increases and decreases Print lengthens.
  • Of the Pneumatic muscle is characterized by a lightweight, compact as well maintenance-free design, because no moving respectively mechanical Parts are necessary as in conventional drive devices. He works absolutely smooth, which also soft movements are possible or the machines according to the invention are not vibrated by the pneumatic muscle. With the pneumatic muscle is a very good power-to-weight ratio achievable which is particularly positive during transport of the device according to the invention effect. Mechanical muscle can For example, be obtained from the company Festo Germany.
  • With the pneumatic muscle can be any movement of machine parts, which can be generated by a linear drive can be performed. Preferably, however, the pneumatic muscle is part of a lifting device or part of a punch.
  • Preferably, the packaging machine is a so-called form-fill-seal packaging machine, as in accordance with 1 is explained in more detail. Particularly preferably, the pneumatic muscle is used in this machine for driving a punch, are punched with the gas exchange holes in a film web. The pneumatic muscle can also be used to drive a cutter, for example, the transverse and / or longitudinal cutter of a packaging machine.
  • Preferably is the pneumatic muscle between the case of the Packing machine and a vertical displacement unit arranged.
  • Preferably, this displacement unit has one, more preferably a plurality of punches, wherein the punches are very particularly preferably arranged on the displacement unit such that they do not all hit the foil web simultaneously. By this particularly preferred embodiment According to the present invention, the force to be applied for punching the holes can be reduced. Preferably, a further pneumatic muscle is arranged on the displacement unit, which retracts the displacement unit after punching the holes in their initial position.
  • In a particularly preferred embodiment is the displacement unit with preferably maintenance-free plain bearings on the housing the packaging machine stored. Very particularly preferred points the displacement unit damping means, for example elastic damping rings on, to punch when possible to transfer little vibration to the packaging machine and / or noises to reduce during the punching process.
  • Preferably the punches are provided with a bore, very particularly preferred the stamps are hollow inside. Through this hole a gas is blown, after punching the stamped foil parts of the stamp blows away. Preferably, the punch acts with a bore (cutting bushes) together, in which the punched-out piece of foil blown in after punching becomes. From this hole falls the foil piece then in a waste container. Preferably, the punches are guided in plain bearings, which are above the cutting sockets are arranged. This will cause a horizontal displacement of the While punching punches by punching forces and avoid associated deformation of the Verschiebbeeinheit
  • In a most preferred embodiment of the present invention Invention comprises the punch, in particular the displacement unit or the pneumatic muscle a means by which established It can be determined whether the pneumatic muscle has performed the desired movement. This means may be, for example, a proximity switch. As soon as this proximity switch a corresponding signal settles recognizes a connected control the machine according to the invention, that all holes have been punched in the film web. A single monitor the respective stamp, as known from the prior art, can thus be omitted.
  • In the following, the invention is based on the 1 and 2 explained. These explanations are merely exemplary and do not limit the general inventive concept.
  • 1 shows a form-fill-seal packaging machine.
  • 2 shows a punch driven by two pneumatic muscles.
  • 1 shows a schematic representation of a possible embodiment of the packaging machine according to the invention. A bottom foil 42 is unrolled from a roll and initially with a heating element 1 heated. Subsequently, the lower film is in a forming station 43 deep-drawn. This form station 43 has an upper tool 44 and a lower tool 45 that on a pad 46 is arranged on. As shown by the double arrow, the pad is 46 and thus the lower tool 45 vertically movable. Once the packaging trays 3 in the Unterfolienbahn 42 they are molded with the packaged goods 54 filled. Then before the packaging trays in the sealing station 48 arrive are by means of a punch schematically illustrated 56 Holes punched in the bottom foil, which are needed for the gas exchange in the packaging within the sealing station. In the sealing station 48 becomes a top film 55 on the bottom foil 42 sealed and thus the packaging closed. In the present case, the upper film by means of a heating element 1 warmed up and then by means of the thermoforming tool 44 deep-drawn. This deep drawing can serve to provide a domed lid for the packages. However, the deep drawing can also serve to make the top film shrinkable. The sealing station also has an upper tool 49 and a lower tool 50 on, which are pressed against each other during sealing. In the upper tool 49 There is a sealing frame, which is also heated by means of a heating element. The now closed packages are finally in a cutting station 51 sporadically. The cross cutting of the cutting station also has an upper tool 52 and a lower tool 53 on, with the lower tool 53 in turn is vertically displaceable.
  • 2 shows the punch 56 the packaging machine according to the invention. As a rule, two such punches are each to the right and left of the film web 42 that in the gap 12 transported perpendicular to the paper plane, available. The punch has a vertical displacement unit, in the present case a plate, 8th on, by means of the guide, here a rod 7 in the case 2 the packaging machine is mounted vertically displaceable. Furthermore, the displacement unit 8th firm but reversible with stamps 9 connected in the camps 13 of the housing 2 are slidably mounted and the vertical movement of the displacement unit 8th participate. Through the bushings 13 a horizontal displacement of the cutting punch is avoided by the punching forces and an associated deformation of the displacement unit. Below the column 12 in the film web 42 running, are cutting sockets 10 arranged, wherein a cutting bush cooperates with a stamp. In these cutting bushings punched out the foil parts are pressed. Because the Stem pel in the present case are hollow inside and can be acted upon by a gas flow, the punched-out foil parts during or after punching through the holes 10 blown through and then fall into a shaft 11 which is connected to a collecting container in which the punched-out film parts are collected. The displacement unit 8th and thus the stamp 9 is powered by two pneumatic muscles 5 . 6 driven. The pneumatic muscle 6 pulls the displacement unit 8th and thus the stamp 9 from a starting position vertically downwards. During this movement, the punching of the holes takes place in the film web 42 , Once this punching process is completed, the pressure in the pneumatic muscle 6 it reduces and lengthens itself. At the same time or shortly thereafter, the pneumatic muscle 5 pressurized. It pulls together and moves the displacement unit 8th from the punched position back to the starting position. Once this is achieved, the pressure from this pneumatic muscle is removed again and the muscle 6 can be pressurized again and I pull it together. Because the two pneumatic muscles 5 . 6 never operated at the same time, it is sufficient if they are operated together by a printing unit, wherein the pressure is distributed from a valve to the respective pneumatic muscle. In the present case, a proximity switch is arranged on the track, which transmits a signal to the control of the packaging machine according to the invention, in which position the shifting unit is currently located or in particular if the punching movement has been completely carried out.
