Abstract

A batch (1) of separate folded containers (2) which have a funnel shaped configuration, is moved between two parallel spaced guide rods (4), with the conical funnel part resting on the rods. The e.g. gerberas (8) are inserted when each individual package is unfolded. The method protects the flower stem (9) in the cylindrical section (7) whilst the flower petals (10) are completely in the funnel top section. After insertion the package may be slightly compacted when put into boxes, thus saving package space.

Werkwijze voor het verpakken van bloemen, in het bijzonder gerbera's, alsmede verpakking voor toepassing bij deze werkwij ze. Method for packing of flowers, in particular gerberas, and also packaging for use in this method.

De uitvinding heeft betrekking op een werkwijze voor het verpakken van bloemen, in het bijzonder gerbera's, waarbij een aantal bloemen in een doos wordt aangebracht, alsmede op een verpakking voor toepassing bij de werkwijze. The present invention relates to a method for the packing of flowers, in particular gerberas, in which a number of flowers is placed in a box, as well as to a package for use in the method.

Bij een bekende werkwijze van deze soort wordt ge-5 bruik gemaakt van een verpakking, die bestaat uit een in hoofdzaak vlakke draagplaat, waarin een aantal openingen is aangebracht. In a known method of this type is ge-5 use is made of a packing, which consists of a substantially planar carrier plate, in which a number of openings is arranged. De bloemen worden hierbij elk met de steel door een opening gestoken, zodanig dat de bloem op de draagplaat komt te liggen en de steel hieronder verloopt. The flowers are hereby each having the stem inserted through an opening, in such a way that the flower on the support plate comes to lie, and the stem extends below. Aangezien in het 10 bijzonder bij gerbera's de bloem een betrekkelijk grote diameter heeft, kan slechts een gering aantal bloemen door de draagplaat worden ondersteund, zodat bij toepassing van de bekende werkwijze en verpakking in het relatief grote, door de doos bepaalde volume een klein aantal bloemen wordt verpakt. Since a relatively large diameter of the flower in the 10 particularly at gerberas, only a small number of flowers can be supported by the support plate, so that when using the known method and packaging in the relatively large, by the box-determined volume of a small number of flowers is packaged.

15 Hierdoor worden de transportkosten in het bijzonder bij transport per vliegtuig bijzonder hoog. 15 As a result, transport costs are, in particular, during transport by air is particularly high.

De uitvinding beoogt een werkwijze van de in de aanhef genoemde soort te verschaffen, waarbij dit bezwaar op eenvoudige wijze is ondervangen. The invention aims to provide a method of the type mentioned in the preamble, wherein this disadvantage is obviated in a simple manner.

20 Hiertoe heeft de werkwijze volgens de uitvinding het kenmerk, dat elke bloem eerst met de steel in een trechtervormige koker wordt geschoven, totdat de bloembladen in de trechtervormige koker liggen, waarbij de diameter aan het smalle uiteinde van de koker aanmerkelijk kleiner is dan 25 de diameter van de te verpakken bloemen. 20 To this end, the method characterized in that each flower is first slid with the stem in a funnel-shaped duct according to the invention, until the petals lie in the funnel-shaped sleeve, wherein the diameter is considerably smaller at the narrow end of the sleeve than 25, the diameter of the flowers to be packed.

Op deze wijze wordt bereikt,dat de bloem door de trechtervormige koker althans gedeeltelijk wordt dichtgevouwen, zodat in een bepaald volume een aanmerkelijk groter aantal bloemen kan worden verpakt, waardoor de transportkosten aan-30 zienlijk worden gereduceerd. In this manner it is obtained that the flour is folded at least partly through the funnel-shaped sleeve, so that it can be packed, a considerably larger number of flowers in a given volume, so that the transport costs can be reduced considerably to-30. Bij proefnemingen in de praktijk is gebleken, dat twee tot drie maal zoveel bloemen in eenzelfde volume kunnen worden verpakt, zonder dat beschadiging van de bloem optreedt. In tests in practice it has been found, which can be packaged as many flowers in an equal volume of two to three times, without departing from the flower damage occurs. Een belangrijk voordeel van de werkwijze volgens de uitvinding is dan ook, dat de bloem volledig is be-35 schermd door de trechtervormige koker. An important advantage of the method according to the invention is, therefore, that the flour is fully be-35 protected by the funnel-shaped sleeve.

De uitvinding verschaft tevens een verpakking, bestemd voor toepassing bij de beschreven werkwijze, welke verpakking volgens de uitvinding daardoor wordt gekenmerkt, dat de verpakking bestaat uit een platte, tot een trechtervorm 5 openvouwbare koker, die is vervaardigd uit een dun, soepel materiaal, waarbij de diameter aan het smalle uiteinde van de koker kleiner is dan de diameter van de te verpakken bloemen. The invention also provides a packaging intended for use in the disclosed method, said packaging being characterized in accordance with the invention, that the packaging consists of a flat, into a funnel shape 5 open foldable sleeve, which is made of a thin, flexible material, wherein the diameter at the small end of the sleeve is smaller than the diameter of the flowers to be packed.

Bij voorkeur bezit de trechtervormige koker aan het smalle uiteinde een cilindrisch verlengstuk. Preferably, the funnel-shaped sleeve, a cylindrical extension at the narrow end. Hierdoor wordt 10 een bijzonder goede bescherming van de bloem bereikt. This 10 is a particularly good protection of the flower.

De uitvinding wordt hierna nader toegelicht aan de hand van de tekening, waarin schematisch een perspectivisch aanzicht van een reeks met elkaar verbonden verpakkingen is weergegeven. The invention will be explained in more detail below with reference to the drawing, which diagrammatically shows a perspective view of a series of connected packages with each other.

15 Een pakket 1, dat bestaat uit een aantal losneembaar met elkaar verbonden verpakkingen 2, wordt ondersteund door een gedeeltelijk afgebeeld geleidingsorgaan 3, dat bij het weergegeven uitvoeringsvoorbeeld twee stangen 4 omvat. 15, a package 1, which consists of a number of detachably interconnected packages 2, is supported by a partially illustrated guide member 3, which at the embodiment shown comprises two bars 4. Elke verpakking 2 bestaat uit een plat gevouwen koker 5, die aan het 20 smalle uiteinde 6 een cilindrisch verlengstuk 7 bezit. Each pack 2 consists of a flat-folded tube 5, which is at the narrow end 6 20 7 has a cylindrical extension. De verpakking 2 is vervaardigd uit een dun, soepel en doorzichtig materiaal. The package 2 is made of a thin, flexible and transparent material. Zoals uit de tekening blijkt, kan de koker 5 gemakkelijk worden opengevouwen tot een ronde trechtervorm. As can be seen from the drawing, the sleeve 5 can easily be unfolded into a round funnel shape.

Voor het gebruik van de verpakkingen 2 worden de 25 verpakkingen achtereenvolgens opengevouwen, waarna een bloem 8, zoals bijvoorbeeld een gerbera, met de steel 9 in de koker 5 en door het cilindrische verlengstuk 7 wordt geschoven, totdat de bloembladen 10 van de bloem 8. geheel in de trechtervormige koker 5 liggen. after which a flower 8, such as, for example, a gerbera, with the stem 9 in the tube 5 and is pushed by the cylindrical extension 7, until the list of the flower petals 10 8 for the use of the packages 2, the 25 packages are successively unfolded. a whole are situated in the funnel-shaped duct 5. Aangezien de diameter aan het smalle uit-30 einde 6 van de koker 5 aanmerkelijk kleiner is dan de diameter van de onverpakte bloem 8, worden de bloembladen 10 samengevouwen, zodat de ruimte, die de bloem in beslag neemt aanzienlijk wordt gereduceerd. Since the diameter at the narrow out-30, end 6 of the sleeve 5 is considerably smaller than the diameter of the unpackaged flour 8, the petals 10 are folded together, so that the space, which takes the flour in batter is considerably reduced. Na het aanbrengen van bijvoorbeeld vijf bloemen in opeenvolgende,met elkaar verbonden kokers 5, worden 35 de gevulde kokers 5 van het pakket 1 losgenomen en worden de verpakte bloemen 8 in een niet-weergegeven doos gelegd. After the application of, for example, five flowers in consecutive, interconnected sleeves 5, are 35, the filled tubes 5 of the package 1 removed, and the packed flowers to 8 are placed in a box, not shown. In deze doos kunnen door toepassing van de verpakking relatief veel bloemen worden verpakt, waardoor de transportkosten aanmerkelijk worden verlaagd. In this box can be packed relatively large amount of flowers by the use of the package, thereby reducing the transportation costs significantly.

40 Bovendien worden de bloemen 8 door de verpakking 2 8301709 - 3 - r —, « op doelmatige wijze tegen, beschadiging beschermt. 40 In addition, the floral 8 through the package 2 are 8301709-3 - r -, "in an efficient manner against and damage protection.

Bij voorkeur is de diameter van de koker 5 aan het brede uiteinde 11 althans ongeveer gelijk aan de diameter van de te verpakken bloemen. Preferably, the diameter of the tube 5 at the wide end 11 at least approximately equal to the diameter of the flowers to be packed. Hierdoor wordt een gelijkmatig samen-5 vouwen van de bloembladen 10 bereikt, zonder dat beschadiging hiervan kan optreden. As a result, a uniformly together 5-fold of the petals 10 reach, without these being damaged may occur.

De uitvinding is niet beperkt tot het in het voorgaande beschreven uitvoeringsvoorbeeld, dat binnen het kader der uitvinding op verschillende manieren kan worden gevarieerd. The invention is not limited to the above-described embodiment, that within the scope of the invention can be varied in a number of ways.
