    • le matériau du peigne et de la tige est choisi entre du polypropylène, du polyamide et du polyoxyméthylène. comb the material and the stem is selected from polypropylene, polyamide and polyoxymethylene.
  • L'invention se rapporte également à un ensemble applicateur comportant le système d'application ci-dessus combiné à un conditionnement capsule - flaconnette adapté à ce système, ainsi qu'à un procédé d'assemblage d'un ensemble applicateur. The invention also relates to an applicator assembly comprising the dispensing system above combined with a capsule packaging - small bottle adapted to this system as well as a method of assembling an applicator assembly.
  • Dans un tel procédé, l'essoreur est pré-positionné sur la tige dans un premier temps puis, après remplissage du produit dans la flaconnette, la tige est introduite dans le col de celle-ci ; In such a process, the wiper is pre-positioned on the shaft in first and then, after filling the product in the vial, the rod is introduced into the neck thereof; lors de la première fermeture, alors que la capsule vient en butée sur la flaconnette, l'essoreur est entraîné par la capsule et vient s'enchâsser de façon permanente dans le col de la flaconnette. during the first closing, while the capsule abuts the small bottle, the squeegee is entrained by the cap and comes to embed permanently in the neck of the vial.
  • Selon un mode de réalisation avantageux, lorsque la capsule vient en butée sur la flaconnette, par exemple par poussée ou par vissage, l'essoreur se trouve dans une position intermédiaire dans laquelle le jonc est en contact sur une portion de la gorge. According to an advantageous embodiment, when the capsule abuts the vial, for example by pushing or screwing, the wiper is located in an intermediate position in which the rod is in contact over a portion of the groove. Dans cette position, la gorge exerce une force à composante axiale sur le jonc qui s'introduit alors dans la gorge dans une position permanente de retenue, créant un jeu entre l'essoreur et la portée de la capsule. In this position, the groove exerts an axial component force on the ring which is then introduced into the groove in a permanent retaining position, creating a clearance between the wiper and the scope of the capsule. Ce mode de réalisation permet ainsi d'éviter une double portée simultanée entre la capsule et l'essoreur et la capsule et la flaconnette. This embodiment thus avoids a simultaneous dual range between the cap and the wiper and the cap and the vial.
  • L'invention concerne également un procédé de réalisation d'un tel système, dans lequel l'ensemble tige et peigne est réalisé par moulage. The invention also relates to a method for producing such a system, wherein the shaft and comb assembly is made by molding. Ce moule présente avantageusement un ou des plans de joint disposés en dehors de la partie dentée du peigne. This mold advantageously has one or more parting lines arranged outside the toothed portion of the comb. Ainsi, le moule ne laisse pas de bavure sur et entre les dents et le peigne ne risque pas d'arracher ou de couper les cils. Thus, the mold does not leave burrs on and between the teeth and the comb is not likely to tear or cut the eyelashes.
  • Le moule présente avantageusement des évents à proximité immédiate de l'extrémité des dents afin de chasser l'air lors de l'injection du plastique. The mold advantageously has vents in immediate proximity to the teeth of the end in order to expel the air during the injection of the plastic.
  • Pour faciliter le démoulage du moule, le peigne est moulé autour d'une broche axiale pour maintenir ce peigne selon l'axe longitudinal lors du démoulage. For easy removal of the mold, the comb is molded around an axial pin in order to maintain this comb according to the longitudinal axis during demoulding.

En particulier, cette adaptation est fonction de la composition chimique, des propriétés physiques, telles que la viscosité et la mouillabilité, la texture et à la composition du mascara 50 à déposer. In particular, this adaptation is function of the chemical composition, physical properties, such as viscosity and wettability, the texture and the composition of the mascara 50 to drop.
  • Afin de permettre un raclage efficace des faces externes rectilignes d'un peigne à simple ou double rangée et un essuyage efficace de la tige de même profil, l'essoreur 32 présente une ouverture 34 ayant quatre faces concaves formant un ensemble « quadriconcave », telle qu'illustrée par les To enable effective scraping rectilinear outer sides of a single comb or double row and an effective wiping of the same profile rod, the wiper 32 has an opening 34 having four concave faces forming an assembly "quadriconcave", as illustrated by figures 7a 7a et and 7b 7b . .
  • La vue cavalière ( The isometric view ( figure 7a 7a ) illustre les principales caractéristiques de l'essoreur 32 : une lèvre quadriconvexe 36 de raclage de produit, dont le contour externe forme l'ouverture 34, un rétrécissement 37 d'orientation du corps de l'essoreur, correspondant à une rampe formée dans l'essoreur pour aligner le peigne sur l'ouverture 34, un jonc 33 de rotation de l'essoreur, et le joint supérieur 32a d'assise sur la flaconnette. ) Illustrates the main features of the wiping device 32: a lip 36 quadriconvexe product scraping, whose outer contour forms the opening 34, a constriction 37 of the body of the wiper orientation, corresponding to a ramp formed in the 'wiper to align the comb on the opening 34, a ring 33 of rotation of the wiper, and the top seal 32a sitting on the vial.
  • La vue partiellement arrachée de l'essoreur ( The partially broken away view of the wiper ( figure 7b 7b ) montre plus particulièrement la présence d'un bourrelet 38 de centrage et d'essuyage du peigne dans l'essoreur, formant un passage 34'. ) Shows more particularly the presence of a bead 38 of centering and wiping the comb through the wiper, forming a passage 34 '. Un tel bourrelet, formé dans l'essoreur, est suffisamment résistant pour guider le peigne et l'orienter selon l'ouverture 34. Ainsi, lorsque l'utilisateur tourne la capsule, comme il est d'usage de faire avec un système de fermeture classique, le bourrelet 38 de l'essoreur est apte à supporter sans dommage les efforts générés par la tige dans l'essoreur, en protégeant la lèvre 36, fine comme une lame, qui serait sinon déformée et endommagée. Such a bead formed in the wiper, is strong enough to guide the comb and orient it according to the opening 34. Thus, when the user rotates the cap, as it has been customary to do with a closure system vector, the bead 38 of the wiper is able to withstand without damage the stresses generated by the rod in the wiper, protecting the lip 36, as a fine blade, which would otherwise be deformed and damaged.
  • Ce bourrelet est continu dans l'exemple illustré mais peut être discontinu dans des variantes de réalisation. This bead is continuous in the illustrated example but may be discontinuous in alternative embodiments. Dans l'exemple de réalisation non limitatif, la lèvre de raclage possède une épaisseur d'environ 0,5 mm avec un bord vif, et le bourrelet de centrage une épaisseur selon l'axe longitudinal d'environ 1, 7 mm avec un profil arrondi. In the exemplary non-limiting embodiment, the wiping lip has an approximately 0.5 mm thick with a sharp edge, and the centering bead a thickness along the longitudinal axis of about 1 mm with a profile 7 round.
  • Des vues en coupe longitudinale selon les plans de coupe perpendiculaires VIIIa et VIIIb de l'essoreur précédent, sont illustrées par les Views in longitudinal section along the perpendicular section planes VIIIa and VIIIb of the preceding wiper, are illustrated by the figures 8a et 8b Figures 8a and 8b . . Sur ces figures, apparaissent le joint 32a, le jonc 33 et la lèvre 36 ainsi que le bourrelet 38. In these figures, appear the seal 32a, the ring 33 and the lip 36 and the bead 38.
  • Sur la On the figure 8a 8a , le corps de l'essoreur 32 apparaît faiblement évasé et symétrique par rapport à l'axe central X'X, alors que sur la , The body of the wiper 32 appears slightly flared and symmetrical with respect to the central axis X'X, whereas in figure 8b 8b , il apparaît dissymétrique par rapport à l'axe longitudinal X'X, pour se raccorder à la forme de l'ouverture 34 en intégrant la rampe 37 sur une seule face de coupe. It appears asymmetrical with respect to the longitudinal axis X'X, to connect to the shape of the opening 34 by integrating the ramp 37 on one cutting face. Le passage 34' est également repéré sur ces The passage 34 is also spotted on these figures 8a et 8b Figures 8a and 8b . .
  • La The figure 9 Figure 9 montre une vue en perspective partiellement arrachée d'un exemple de système d'application en utilisation, après retrait du peigne 10 de l'essoreur 32, les éléments du système d'application étant alignés selon un axe coïncidant avec l'axe X'X du peigne. shows a partially broken away perspective view of an exemplary application in use system, after removal of the comb 10 of the wiper 32, the dispensing system of the elements being aligned along an axis coinciding with the axis X'X the comb. L'ouverture 34 de l'essoreur 32 est alignée sur le contour du peigne 10 et l'enveloppe du peigne correspond au contour de l'ouverture 34 de l'essoreur. The opening 34 of the wiper 32 is aligned with the contour of the comb 10 and the envelope of the comb corresponding to the contour of the opening 34 of the wiper.
  • Le peigne présente, en extrémité, une portion biseauté 14a. The comb has, at the end, a bevelled portion 14a. Cette découpe de matière permet de faciliter l'introduction du peigne dans l'essoreur. This material cutting facilitates the introduction of the comb through the wiper. Elle peut être réalisée sur le côté dépourvu de rangée de dents ou sur le côté de la rangée de dents. It can be performed on the side without the row of teeth or on the side of the row of teeth.
  • L'essoreur est réalisé dans cet exemple par moulage par injection à partir d'un élastomère thermoplastique avec un procédé connu permettant de démouler les contre-dépouilles formées par le bourrelet. The wiper is made in this example by injection molding from a thermoplastic elastomer with a known method for demolding against the undercuts formed by the bead.
  • Un exemple d'assemblage d'un ensemble applicateur, comportant le système profilé couplé à une capsule et une flaconnette, est illustré aux An assembly example of an applicator assembly, having the profile system coupled to a cap and a small bottle, is illustrated in figures 10a à 10d Figures 10a to 10d . .
  • L'essoreur 32 est, dans un premier temps, pré-positionné ( The wiper 32 is in a first, pre-set ( figure 10a Figure 10a ) sur la tige 14, par exemple contre la portée 12a formée par la capsule 12 en sa jonction avec la tige 14. Après remplissage du produit dans la flaconnette 30 ( ) On the rod 14, for example against the capsule 12a formed by the scope 12 in its junction with the rod 14. After filling the product in the vial 30 ( figure 10b Figure 10b ), l'ensemble capsule-tige-essoreur est aligné axialement sur la flaconnette 30 et la tige 14 est introduite dans le col 31 de celle-ci. ), The entire capsule-wiper rod is axially aligned with the vial 30 and the rod 14 is inserted into the neck 31 thereof.
  • Lorsque la capsule 12 vient en butée sur la flaconnette 30 ( When the capsule 12 abuts against the vial 30 ( figure 10c Figure 10c ), par exemple par poussée dans le présent exemple de fermeture par clipsage, l'essoreur 34, entraîné par la capsule 12, se trouve dans une position intermédiaire instable. ), For example by pushing in the present exemplary closure by clipping, the wiper 34, driven by the capsule 12, is in an unstable intermediate position.
  • Dans cette position intermédiaire, le jonc 33 est en contact avec une portion déterminée de la gorge 34. La gorge exerce alors une force In this intermediate position, the rod 33 is in contact with a specific portion of the groove 34. The groove then exerts a force F F à composante axiale sur le jonc 33 de l'essoreur 32 représenté en traits pointillés sur la figure agrandie 10d. axial component on the rod 33 of the wiper 32 shown in broken lines in FIG enlarged 10d. Le jonc s'enchâsse alors de lui-même dans la gorge 34 selon une position finale de retenue de l'essoreur 32 (représenté en traits pleins) dans le col 31de la flaconnette, créant un jeu entre la surface supérieure 32s de l'essoreur 32 et la portée 12a de la capsule. The rod then embeds itself in the groove 34 to a final position retaining the wiper 32 (shown in solid lines) in the neck 31de the vial, creating a clearance between the upper surface 32s of the wiper 32 and 12a the scope of the capsule. Ce mode de réalisation permet ainsi d'éviter la création d'une double portée entre, d'une part, la capsule et l'essoreur et, d'autre part, la capsule et la flaconnette. This embodiment thus avoids the creation of a dual range between on the one hand, the capsule and the wiper and, secondly, the capsule and vial.
  • L'invention n'est pas limitée aux exemples de réalisation décrits et représentés. The invention is not limited to the embodiments described and shown. Il est possible par exemple de prévoir une ouverture d'essoreur de forme quadrilinéaire ou biconcave - bilinéaire. It is possible for example to provide an opening for wiping quadrilinear form biconcave - bilinear. Dans ce dernier cas, des moyens de détrompage visuels ou mécaniques sont formés sur le peigne et l'essoreur afin de positionner en regard les faces rectilignes et concaves du peigne et de l'essoreur. In the latter case, visual or mechanical keying means are formed on the comb and the wiper to position facing the straight and concave faces of the comb and of the wiper.
  • Par ailleurs, la capsule peut être fixée à la flaconnette par vissage. Moreover, the capsule may be secured to the vial by screwing. Dans ce cas, l'essoreur est rendu libre en rotation par tout moyen connu de l'homme de l'art, pour permettre l'alignement de son profil avec celui du peigne et de sa tige. In this case, the wiper is made free to rotate by any means known to the skilled person to allow the alignment of its profile with that of the comb and its stem.
  • De plus, il est possible de prévoir des rangées de dents non régulièrement espacées, de manière à adapter la quantité de produit à appliquer en fonction de la zone d'application du produit. In addition, it is possible to provide rows of non uniformly spaced teeth, so as to adjust the quantity of product to be applied depending on the product application area.
  • En outre, le peigne peut avoir plus d'une ou deux excroissances, intégrant ou pas une rangée de dents : la In addition, the comb can have more than one or two growths, or not incorporating a row of teeth: the figure 11 Figure 11 montre un peigne à quatre excroissances, 16a à 16d, à profil en croix, chaque excroissance portant une rangée de dents 11. Les rangées de dents 11 s'étendent deux à deux selon des directions opposées le long de l'axe longitudinal X'X, sensiblement dans deux plans médians perpendiculaires P1 et P2. shows a comb with four protrusions, 16a to 16d, in profile cross each protuberance carrying a row of teeth 11. The rows of teeth 11 extend in pairs in opposite directions along the longitudinal axis X'X substantially in two perpendicular median planes P1 and P2. La tige et l'ouverture de l'essoreur du système applicateur possèdent alors un profil en croix, sensiblement identique à celui du peigne. The rod and the opening of the applicator wiper system then have a cruciform profile substantially identical to that of the comb. Dans des variantes, le nombre d'excroissances du peigne, régulièrement réparties ou non régulièrement réparties le long de l'axe longitudinal, peut aller de préférence, de trois à huit, le profil de la tige et de l'ouverture de l'essoreur restant sensiblement identique à celui du peigne. In variants, the number of protrusions of the comb, uniformly distributed or not uniformly distributed along the longitudinal axis, may range preferably from three to eight, the profile of the rod and the opening of the wiper remaining substantially the same as the comb. Certaines excroissances à extrémités biseautées peuvent être prévues comme décrits ci-dessus. Some growths beveled ends may be provided as described above. Les rangées de dents peuvent également être décalées selon l'axe longitudinal, par exemple d'un demi - pas lorsque les rangées ont même interstice, afin d'améliorer l'uniformité de répartition du mascara. The rows of teeth may also be shifted along the longitudinal axis, for example, a half - not even when the rows gap to improve the uniformity of distribution of the mascara.
