Description

  The present invention relates to a tablet supply device that sequentially supplies tablets stored in a hopper and a PTP packaging machine including the tablet supply device when filling tablets into a PTP sheet.
  In general, a PTP sheet containing a tablet is composed of a container film in which a pocket portion filled with tablets is formed and a cover film attached to the container film so as to seal the opening side of the pocket portion. ing. Such a PTP sheet is manufactured by a PTP packaging machine (blister packaging machine).
  A PTP packaging machine is a pocket forming device that forms a pocket portion in a belt-like container film, a tablet filling device that fills the pocket portion with a tablet while transporting the belt-like container film in which the pocket portion is formed, and a tablet in the pocket portion. A sticking device for sticking the cover film to the filled belt-like container film, a punching device for punching in units of PTP sheets, and the like are provided.
  The tablet supply device for supplying tablets to the tablet filling device includes a hopper for storing tablets, a saucer member for receiving tablets falling from a discharge port opened at a lower portion of the hopper, and a vibration device for vibrating the saucer member. The tablet discharged from the hopper is sequentially transferred to the downstream side by vibrating the tray member.
  As described above, in the field of supply devices that sequentially supply supplies such as tablets stored in the hopper, there has been a problem that the supplies are overlapped in the hopper and clogging is likely to occur. In view of this, in recent years, a rod-shaped member inserted into the hopper from the discharge port of the hopper is erected on the tray member, and the rod-shaped member vibrates in the hopper together with the vibration of the tray member. A technique for promoting clogging and suppressing clogging of the supply in the hopper has also been proposed (see, for example, Patent Document 1).
Japanese Patent Laid-Open No. 5-17042
  However, as shown in FIG. 7, a rod-like member 92 inserted into the hopper 90 from the discharge port 90a of the hopper 90 is formed of a relatively rigid material such as metal, and together with a saucer member 93 erected, In the configuration that is vibrated by the vibration device 94, the tablet 95 may be damaged such as scratches, cracks, and chips.
  For example, the storage density of the tablets 95 is higher in the hopper 90 than in the vicinity of the discharge port 90a where the tablets 95 are gradually discharged and reduced. Further, when the highly rigid rod-shaped member 92 is vibrated, the tip portion and the root portion of the rod-shaped member 92 are similarly vibrated in the horizontal direction.
  Therefore, a force that shears the tablet 95 is likely to be applied to the tablet 95 in the vicinity of the tip of the rod-shaped member 92 disposed inside the hopper 90. Further, on the side surface near the tip of the rod-shaped member 92, a force that presses the tablet 95 against the inner wall of the hopper 90 is easily applied to the tablet 95. Further, when the highly rigid rod-like member 92 is vibrated, the amount of movement of the tablet 95 in the hopper 90 also increases, and the tablet 95 is easily damaged.
  In addition, unlike the pellet (resin material) etc. which become a supply in patent document 1, the tablet of the stage with which a PTP sheet is filled is a completed product, and more careful handling is calculated | required.
  This invention is made | formed in view of the said situation, and makes it one of the main objectives to provide the tablet supply apparatus and PTP packaging machine which can aim at the fall suppression of product quality, etc.
  Hereinafter, each means suitable for solving the above-described problem will be described separately. In addition, the effect specific to the means to respond | corresponds as needed is added.
Means 1. A hopper for storing tablets;
A saucer member for receiving a tablet falling from a discharge port opened at a lower portion of the hopper;
Vibration means for vibrating the tray member,
A tablet supply device that sequentially transfers tablets dropped from the hopper to the downstream side by vibrating the tray member,
A tablet supply device, wherein a rod-like member made of an elastic body inserted into the hopper from a discharge port of the hopper is erected on the tray member.
  According to the above means 1, the rod-shaped member vibrates in the hopper together with the vibration of the tray member, thereby facilitating the dropping of the tablet and suppressing the clogging of the tablet in the hopper or in the vicinity of the discharge port.
  In particular, in this means, the rod-like member is formed of an elastic body such as rubber. Therefore, the rod-shaped member has flexibility and vibrates while being bent in the hopper. Specifically, in the vicinity of the discharge port of the hopper, the base portion of the bar-shaped member vibrates greatly together with the tray member as in the prior art, while the amplitude decreases toward the tip of the bar-shaped member and is located inside the hopper where the tablets are more packed. The tip part of the rod-shaped member to be moved is in a swinging manner such that it hardly moves.
  As a result, in addition to the rod-shaped member itself being softly formed by the elastic body, the above-described swinging mode causes the trouble that the vicinity of the tip of the rod-shaped member vibrates unnecessarily and damages the tablet. In the vicinity of the discharge port of the hopper, the tablet vibrates greatly and the clogging of the tablet can be suppressed.
  Further, since the bar-shaped member takes the above-described swinging mode, a gap is less likely to be generated between the bar-shaped member and the tablet, and the position of each tablet does not change drastically. Thereby, the flow of the whole tablet becomes smooth, and the possibility that the rod-shaped member and the tablet collide and the tablet is damaged can be reduced.
  If the tip of the highly rigid rod-shaped member is pivotally supported in the hopper so as to vibrate its base side, the rod-shaped member itself is not only stiff, Compared to the configuration, a gap is likely to be generated between the rod-shaped member and the tablet, and the rod-shaped member and the tablet may collide and damage the tablet. In addition, the apparatus becomes complicated, and the hopper and the tray member (bar-shaped member) cannot be replaced separately, and there is a possibility that the maintainability and versatility are reduced.
Mean 2. On the saucer member, a protrusion having a rigidity higher than that of the rod-shaped member is formed,
2. The tablet supply device according to claim 1, wherein the bar-like member is attached to the protrusion.
  According to the above means 2, since the rigidity of the base portion of the rod-shaped member is increased, it is possible to reduce a problem that the rod-shaped member falls from the root, and it is possible to realize the above-described swing mode more reliably. .
  In addition, since the bar-shaped member can be replaced, it can be appropriately changed to a bar-shaped member having a different length or thickness according to the difference in the shape of the hopper, the type of the tablet, the clogging point, and the like. . As a result, maintainability and versatility can be improved.
  Means 3. The tablet supply device according to means 1 or 2, wherein a tip end portion of the rod-like member is formed in a tapered shape.
  If the tip of the rod-like member is formed flat, the tablet will be placed on it and may not be dropped and cause clogging. The occurrence of defects can be reduced. If the tip of the metal rod-shaped member is formed in a tapered shape, the tablet may be damaged, but such a problem is unlikely to occur if the rod-shaped member is made of an elastic body.
Means 4. A tablet supply device according to any one of the above means 1 to 3,
A PTP packaging machine comprising: a tablet filling device for filling a tablet supplied from the tablet supply device into a pocket portion formed in a belt-like container film.
  According to the said means 4, when manufacturing a PTP sheet, the fall of a product quality, etc. can be aimed at.

  In addition, since the vibrating bar 51 takes the above-described swinging mode, a gap is less likely to be generated between the vibrating bar 51 and the tablet 5 and the position of each tablet 5 does not change drastically as compared with the related art. Thereby, the flow of the whole tablet 5 becomes smooth, and the possibility that the vibration bar 51 and the tablet 5 collide and the tablet 5 is damaged can be reduced.
  In addition, in the present embodiment, a protrusion 50 is provided on the upper surface of the tray member 42 </ b> A, and the vibrating bar 51 is attached to the protrusion 50. Thereby, since the rigidity of the base part of the vibration rod 51 becomes high, it is possible to reduce a problem that the vibration rod 51 falls from the root, and it is possible to realize the above-described swing mode more reliably. Further, since the vibration bar 51 can be replaced, the vibration bar 51 can be appropriately changed to have a different length and thickness depending on the difference in the shape of the hopper 41, the type of the tablet 5, the point at which clogging occurs, and the like. can do. As a result, maintainability and versatility can be improved.
