  • The egg packages 20 are aligned while they are conveyed by the first egg package conveying device 18.
  • FIG. 3 shows that the sleeve 14 is held by the sleeve control jig 16. The sleeve dispenser 12 dispenses the sleeve 14 in vertical direction, and the sleeve control jig 16 rotates the sleeve 14 into horizontal direction before the egg package inserter 22 inserts the egg package 20 into the sleeve 14 as shown in FIGS. 4, 5 and 6. The egg package inserter 22 inserts the egg package 20 into the sleeve 14 horizontally. When the egg package 20 is inserted into the sleeve 14, product verification is performed to check proper matching of the sleeve and the egg package.
  • The sleeve control jig 16 comprises a first arm 28 and a second arm 30 that is provided opposite to the first arm 28. The sleeve 14 is held between the first arm 28 and the second arm 30 with vacuum applied on the first arm 28 and the second arm 30. The first arm 28 and the second arm 30 are rotatable and retractable.
  • The sleeve control jig 16 positions the sleeve 14 to a predetermined position. A stepping motor is used to feed the sleeve. When an eye mark is read by a sensor, the stepping motor stops to cut and feed the sleeve.
  • FIG. 7 shows that the sleeve control jig 16 releases the sleeve 14 after the egg package 20 is inserted into the sleeve 14 by retracting the first arm 28 and the second arm 30. FIG. 8 shows that the sleeve control jig 16 is returned after releasing the sleeve.

The protective case 36 comprises a base 38 and a lid 40. Referring to FIG. 2, the sleeve 14 comprises a thin packing film 42.
  • The predetermined number may be 6, 12, 18, 24 or other number of eggs of commonly used egg packages. The base 38 or lid 40 of the protective case 36 comprise projections 44 that are adapted to separate eggs. Preferably, the base 38 and lid 40 of the protective case 36 are made of molded fiberboard.
  • The sleeve 14 comprises a heat shrink film 46. Preferably, the heat shrink film 46 is made of PVC, PET or OPS. The heat shrink film 46 has a thickness in a range from about 45μ to about 60μ.
  • The heat shrink film 46 comprises has a shape of a tube 48 before it is shrunk. The length of the tube 48 is about the length of the protective case 36 and the width of the tube 48 is about 8 mm to about 14 mm greater than the width of the protective case 36.
  • Referring to FIG. 9, the heat shrink film 46 is shrunk by heating at temperature from about 65 Celsius to about 90 degree Celsius for about 4 to about 5 seconds in the heat tunnel 32.
  • The heat shrink film shrinks about 35% in width and no greater than 6% in length.
  • The present invention is further explained below.
  • The size of the shrink sleeve to be applied to the egg carton for purposes of tamper evidence, ensuring the carton remains closed in shipment and providing a surface for high quality printing to assist in the sales and marketing of the eggs in the carton is determined by the carton itself. The sleeve prior to shrinking would be cut to the exact length of the carton and would have be seamed into a tube that would be 8 mm to 14 mm greater than the circumference of the specific egg carton at it's widest point. The thickness of the sleeve material would be between 45μ to 60μ PVC, PET or OPS shrink film.
  • After the carton is inserted into the shrink sleeve it is conveyed into a 1500 mm dry heat tunnel with a temperature setting between 65° Celsius and 90° Celsius and will travel through the tunnel for four (4) to five (5) seconds. This will shrink the sleeve approximately 35% in the cross direction around the circumference of the carton and no greater than 6% in the machine direction or length of the carton allowing the majority of the vertical end walls of the carton to remain exposed. The sleeve will conform to the general shape of the egg carton.
  • The sleeves may be applied to cartons made of formed or molded fiberboard or various formed plastics the thickness of which is not critical to this application and is variable dependent upon the material and manufacturing specification of the carton. The egg carton size would be for six (6), twelve (12), eighteen (18) or twenty-four (24) pack cartons and specific size would be determined by the carton manufacturer, egg packer and or retailer.
  • While the invention has been shown and described with reference to different embodiments thereof, it will be appreciated by those skilled in the art that variations in form, detail, compositions and operation may be made without departing from the spirit and scope of the invention as defined by the accompanying claims.
