Description

Speiehermagazin and procedures for the intermediate storage of snus Bcuteln

description

The invention relates to an apparatus and a method for the packaging of snus pouches. Snus pouches are filled with snus tobacco packaging. In snus tobacco is so-called oral tobacco (or tobacco blends), which directly or in suitable packaging. for example, is introduced a bag of cellulose or the like in the mouth, where the term tobacco includes not only exclusively the actual tobacco but also tobacco with additives, flavors or the like. When taking unwrapped snus tobacco that is directly in cans, boxes. Combination packs or similar packaging filled. The actual consumption-based or verbrauc hs fert i ge portioning is done by the users themselves. Snus tobacco is, however, available in pre-portioned Tonn. The snus tobacco. in packaged form, namely is taken in individual sachets, or the like, for example, must first be portioned and abgetüllt. The tobacco servings. their weight and size can vary in each case, and usually is in the range from milligrams and grams, are separated from a continuously or intermittently supplied tobacco stream by means Dosiereinrichlungen and usually packed by so-called sachets machines snus pouches. Several of these snus pouches are packed in a further machine in a sales package, such as a box or in particular a can.

This packaging process of snus pouch in a retail packaging is conventionally performed as follows:

In a snus pouch making machine, two bags are produced in parallel and submitted to a tape. This band verfahrt with each dispensing operation by about a pouch width, so that the respective next produced two snus bags are placed behind the previously produced two snus bags onto the belt. The snus bags are transported to a packing station at which a predetermined number of the bags falls in a sales packaging such as a can. The arrangement of the producible ungsmaschine and the conveyor belt are transported on the always two bags side by side, it is only possible to a straight

to pack number of snus pouches in the same sales package. If one wanted to even produce more than two bags in parallel, the restrictions would take the bag number per pack still on. Since each of the number of snus pouches simultaneously produced next to each other falls on the conveyor belt, an additional device is either this number is the smallest unit of which multiples can be packed in a sales packaging, or else it is necessary to respectively the snus bags regrouped ., separates before the at

Sales package be delivered. It is an object of the present invention to provide an apparatus and a method available, and which allows easy packaging of snus pouches in a sales packaging and, in particular, allows the packaging of any number of bags. This object is achieved firstly by a storage magazine, which is designed for the intermediate storage of snus pouches between a bag making apparatus and a transport device and arranged comprising two side walls, a rear wall and a front wall to the side walls extending in parallel spaced-apart shaft walls, form the at least two wells in the storage magazine, with the storage magazine in its transport means side facing a bottom closure element for storing a defined number of snus pouches in each well and to the common output of the defined number of snus pouches having on the transport device, and wherein the storage magazine on the side facing the bag-making apparatus from the lower side of a

closure element having independent upper closure element. Regardless this case means that the position of the upper closure element has no influence on the position of the lower closure element and vice versa, the position of the lower comparison circuit element does not affect the position of the upper Verschlusselcmcnts. Both closure elements are independent of each temporarily closed.

The bag-making device is for example a multiple lane bag machine sealed-, is filled in the parallel of several panels snus tobacco into bags and sealed. Such a machine is working with gravity; in addition, compressed air can be introduced, and so fall after completion of sealing operation, the filled snuff-bag of a lower outlet opening from the processing Beutelhcrstellungsvorrich-. Typically, all paths are equal to clocked, so that the finished snus bags are dispensed simultaneously from the parallel paths.

Beneath the bag-making apparatus storage magazine according to the invention is mounted spaced. This has expediently a number of production lines on appropriate number of wells. As long as the lower closure member is closed, the storage magazine snus pouches are accumulated in the shafts. Once the desired number of snus bags is reached, the lower closure element is opened and the snus bags fall onto the below of the storage magazine arranged transport means. This can happen due to gravity; additionally or alternatively the introduction of pressurized air are possible. After dispensing the packages, the lower closure element is closed again so that the next packaging can be dammed up to the desired number.

In this way can be independent of the number of production webs of bag making apparatus to form a group of snus pouches or assemble a unit of snus pouches, the packaged together in a transport package. Packing in a transport packaging is possible in a very simple way; a subsequent separation of the individual bags by means of a snus

Accelerator belt etc. entlallt.

The storage magazine additionally has an upper closure element. This makes it possible to discharge poor or faulty snus pouch. The upper closure element is controlled on the basis of information of a detection device in the bag manufacturing apparatus. If the Detektionsvorriehtung detects a snus Bcutel as defective, the upper closure member is closed, and the corresponding bags from entering the storage magazine. Here, the upper shutter member may be formed such that each shaft of the storage magazine can be individually sealed. Accordingly, each lower closure member of the storage magazine can be individually closable. It is particularly advantageous, however, if the upper and / or lower closure element are formed such that all shafts are jointly closable. This represents a particularly simple embodiment that can be achieved without great structural expense.

a hinged flap particularly suitable - because of the small design requirements is a closure element - both as upper as well as lower. This can be advantageously operated by a pneumatic cylinder. A hydraulic cylinder or another drive are possible.

Advantageously, the shafts of the storage magazine can have a constant cross-section over their length. It is particularly advantageous if the cross-section of each shaft increases in the conveying direction of snus pouches. In such a configuration, the individual snus pouches can spread on the floor of the storage magazine over a larger area. Thereby, the height of the stack of accumulated snus bags is lower and less time is required until all snus bags have left the storage magazine by opening the lower Verschlusselemcnts. In addition, the bag can in this design form not tilt in the shaft, and no bag gets stuck in the shaft.

In order to make the ejection, in the case of a defective bag snus einlach particularly, in the conveying direction of snus pouches can connect to the upper closure member is a sliding plate, which forms together with the upper shutter member in its closed state a slide. If an existing in the bag-making apparatus testing device detects a bad or defective bag, the upper closure member is closed. In this closed position the upper closure element is advantageously inclined. The inclination is sufficiently large that the faulty bag does not remain on the closure element, but is derived immediately. The attached skid plate ensures that the erroneous packet is forwarded in a desired manner, for example into a collecting container for defective products.

The object of the present invention is further achieved by an arrangement for the production and packaging of snus pouches, comprising a bag manufacturing apparatus, a checking device for checking the quality of the bags produced, a storage magazine as described above and means for packaging the snus bags in a transport packaging. The device for packaging by the storage magazine in connection with the transport device can be realized by the transport packages are in fact on the transport device already provided for receiving the snuff-bag falling upon opening of the lower comparison circuit element from the storage magazine. This transport packaging must be only still locked in a further step.

The object is also achieved by a method for the packaging of snus pouches, in which the snus pouches are stored in a storage magazine between a bag production device and a transport device, wherein the storage magazine at least two shafts and a lower closure element, and an upper closure element for has the shafts, which comprising

repetitive sequence of steps: a) closing the bottom closure member of the storage magazine;

b) damming a predetermined number of snus pouches in each well;

c) opening of the lower closure member of the storage magazine when the

predetermined number snus bag is reached;

d) discharge of the snuff-bag to the transport device, wherein the snus pouches are tested before leaving the bag-making device and the upper closure member is closed when the checking device detects cincn erroneous snus bags, so that the defective bag is removed, whereupon the upper closure element is opened again.

With this method it is possible, as many snus pouch to collect regardless of the number of manufacturing cars in the Beutelhcrstellungsvorrichtung in groups or together to form a unit and a transport! nri rect as remove a conveyor belt without the snus bags must be put together at a later time again sporadically or in other units. Here, individual sections may be on the transport device as a transport demente be provided for receiving the output of a respective shaft amount snus pouches. Preferably, the transport elements are designed as transport packaging, that are located on the transport device is already the transport packaging, for example cans, which receive the output from a respective slot number snus-pouches. Then an additional transport of the individual snus pouch is avoided.

In a particularly advantageous embodiment of all those who are snus pouches that the snus Beutelherstellungsvorrich- tung leave simultaneously with the faulty snus pouch from the parallel production tracks are removed together with the faulty snus pouch. This is a procedural particularly simple solution that does not require complicated individual control of the respective channels or slots and their closure elements.

Advantage holder, the transport means comprises individual transport elements, and the discharge of the packages to the transport device is such that the predetermined number of snus pouches, each shaft emptied directly in a separate empty transport element of the transport device and the transport device transports the transport elements in such a way that the next time the lower closure element in accordance with step c) each slot an empty transport element is again ordered to-. This can be done by the transport belt after the filling of the individual transport elements so far travels in a step that all filled transport elements leave the area below the storage magazine and empty transport elements are positioned below the storage magazine. Board particularly suited nctcr, the conveyor belt is however matched clocked to the bag-making apparatus and the procedure used in smaller steps. This opens up greater variability for further transportation or the further packaging of the sales packaging for example in a transport box.

The time for the emptying of the storage magazine can ADVANTAGES 1 hafterwei sc thereby be made particularly long, that the lower closure member is already opened during the latest of a predetermined number snus bag is still in the traps by the storage magazine. The last snus bags predetermined number thus falls "with", ie it is not cached in the storage magazine, but falls directly in the transport element of the conveyor belt located under the storage magazine.

The invention, including the process principle is described by way of example with reference to a preferred embodiment. The further features and developments of the invention described below with reference to the accompanying drawings provide considered individually or in combination with each other preferred forms of execution to the invention.

In the drawing show: a perspective view of a storage magazine according to the invention with a closed bottom and an open upper closure element;

Figure 2 is a perspective view of the storage magazine of Figure 1 with an open bottom and closed top closure element..;

Fig. 3 is a perspective view of the storage magazine of FIG. 1 with

a closed bottom and closed upper closure element; a right side view of the storage magazine in the position shown in Figure 1. Figure 5 is a right side view of the storage magazine in the position shown in Figure 2..; Fig. 6 is a schematic view of an arrangement according to the invention for the manufacture and packaging of snus pouches.

Fig. 1 shows a storage magazine 1, constructed and designed for the intermediate storage of snus pouches between a bag making apparatus and a transport device. That storage magazine comprises two side walls, a right side wall 2 and a left side wall 3 and a rear wall 4 and a front wall (in FIG. 1 not shown). Scitenwände and rear walls are made of metal, but other materials such as plastic are used. The front wall is made of a P 1 ex i gl * as - disc, also other transparent material may be used. This provides a clear view of the interior of the magazine allows so that you can see in advance when to clean the magazine or whether a well is plugged.

Parallel to the side walls 2, 3 extend mutually spaced Schachtvvände 5 which form at least two shafts 6 in the storage magazine. The distance between the

Shaft walls 5 from one another is substantially the same. The shaft walls have on their front and their rear edge on each of two protrusions. 7 These serve as an assembly aid to position the shaft walls better. The front and rear walls face the projections on corresponding recesses formed nuteniormig and in which engage the projections of the shaft walls. In the embodiment shown, the wells exhibit a substantially equal cross-section over the entire length of the shaft. Alternatively, the cross-section of each shaft may increase in a funnel shape in conveying direction of the snus-pouches. This can be done in such a way that the front and / or rear wall are flared towards the bottom, so that they have a trapezoidal lateral cross section. Such an arrangement is particularly desirable when the time for emptying the magazine is not sufficient. Due to the increased bottom section the jammed snus pouches can spread over a larger base, so do not fall at the same time all the bags one by one, but several bags when opening the lower closure element.

Magazine receptacle sections 1 1 are used for mounting and fixing of the storage magazine to a snuff-bag-making apparatus or on a stand.

On its side of the transport device facing the storage magazine 1 has a designed as a pivotable flap lower closure element. 8 In the illustrated embodiment, the lower closure element consists of a pivotably mounted in the region of the rear wall 4 of metal plate having parallel slots such that the plate for each of the shafts 6 forms a single closure portion, wherein all the plugging portions pressed together, that is to be opened or closed simultaneously , Alternatively, it is possible that separate closure elements are attached at a pivot axis, so that each shaft can be individually opened or closed, or that the individual fastener elements are mounted separately. Furthermore, the closure element can also be embodied in the form of one or more slide (s), which includes all of the wells together and open or close each individually a shaft and open. Other configurations of the closure element are possible. The pivotally mounted Metallplattc 8 extends from the rear wall 4 towards the front wall obliquely downwards. In this way, the time required for opening of the shaft downwards by pivoting of the metal plate, shortened. An arrangement of the shutter member at right angles to the rear wall in the closed state is possible. Fig. 1 shows the metal plate 8 in its closed, obliquely downwardly inclined position.

On the side facing the bag manufacturing device 1 side, the storage magazine to an independent of the lower locking element 8 upper closure member 9 is formed as the lower closure element as a pivotable flap. but may also include other design forms described for the lower closure element, alternatively. Fig. 1 shows the upper closure member 9 in its open position, in which the metal plate is vertically pivoted downwardly. Fig. 2 shows the storage magazine 1 with opened lower closure element 8 and a closed upper closure member 9. The metal plate 8 is tilted vertically downwards and the lower outlets of the shafts 6 free. The metal plate 9 extends in its closed position is also inclined, however, from the front wall to the rear wall 4 to slope down. Due to the inclination ensures that snus pouch to be discharged, not remain on top of the metal plate 9, but rather slide off downwards. At the lower end of the metal plate, a sliding plate 10 is attached (not shown) of the storage magazine 1 away into a collecting container for defective products directs the discharged snus-pouches.

Fig. 3 shows the storage magazine 1 with a closed lower closure element 8 and a closed upper closure member 9. Both the upper and lower metal plate are inclined; and that from the rear wall to the front wall 4 upwards in the case of the upper metal plate 9 and the rear wall 4 to the front wall towards the bottom in the case of the lower metal plate. 8

Fig. 4 is a side view of the storage magazine 1 in the manner shown in Fig. 1 position, ie with a closed bottom closure element 8. In the embodiment shown, the metal plate is pivoted by a pneumatic cylinder 12 via a lever 13. In the embodiment shown in Fig. 4 closed position, the cylinder piston is in the cylinder 12. Fig. 4 also shows the transparent front wall 19 formed.

In Fig. 5 is a side view of the storage magazine in the position shown in Fig. 2 position, that is shown with an open lower locking element 8. The piston is extended from the cylinder 12 and has moved the lever 13 downward. The movement of the lever 13 causes the lower metal plate 8 pivots downward and releases the lower opening of the magazine. According to the cylinder shown in Figures 4 and 5 / lever arrangement 12, 13 on the right side of the storage magazine, which actuates the lower closure element, the magazine on the left hand side of cylinder / lever arrangement 14, 15 on which the upper shutter member actuated. . Referring to FIG 6, the erfi ndungsgemäße method will be described now: Above the storage magazine 1 is shown schematically a bag-making device 16 with the individual seal portions 16a, 16b and 16c. In the shown in Fig. 6 apparatus has 14 parallel production tracks. At the beginning of a cycle of the lower closure element 8 is closed, the upper closure member 9 is opened. the snus bags a first clock due to gravity fall from the manufacturing webs of bag making apparatus through its top opening in the storage magazine 1. Each preparation web of bag making device is a hopper 6 associated in the magazine since the lower closure element 8 is closed, remain the bag the first bar in the storage magazine. With the next clock per a bag falls back from each of the parallel preparation path in the corresponding channel of the storage magazine. In this way, a certain number snus pouches in each well is collected.

When a predetermined number of snus bags is reached in each shaft, the lower closure member 8 is operated and the bag fall out snus. They fall to a below the storage magazine befindliches conveyor belt 17. The conveyor belt 17 comprises individual transport sections. When the lower shutter member opens 8, each channel 6 of the storage magazine 1 is an empty transport section assigned 18, so that the group formed in the respective channel snus bags total, but separately transported from the other groups of snus bags on the conveyor belt becomes. In the embodiment shown in the Fig. 6 embodiment, 17 individual conveyor belt chambers 18 are formed on the conveyor belt. This may be an integral part of the conveyor belt or separate transport containers. Alternatively, on the tape already cans or other transport packages, which are also the sales packaging, may be provided, so that the snuff-bag from the

Storage magazine fall directly into the respective doses in which the bags are offered for sale later. in each channel, as any number may be collected to snus pouches, any number of snus pouches can be packed in a transport package. To make the time period within which the bags fall from the magazine onto the conveyor belt, as long as possible, the lower shutter member may open already, while the respective snus pouch one last measure still in falling through the magazine. So you will not jammed in the magazine, but fall directly on the conveyor belt.

The conveyor belt with the filled portions moves such that return port belt section positioned an empty transport at the next opening of the lower closure element below each channel and is ready to receive the next packet group.

The lower closure element is closed in time to ensure that the snus pouch the next first clock is collected again in the respective slot. The process begins again.

In the bag-making device 16, a detection device (not shown) is provided which checks the bags produced. If the detection device detects a faulty snus pouch, the top flap of the storage magazine is closed. The faulty bag does not come into the storage magazine but is derived and on the slip sheet, which at the lower end of the upper

Flap followed, discharged as waste. Following the upper flap is opened again, unless in the next cycle, a defective bag is detected by the detection device. In the embodiment shown in Fig. 6 embodiment, all those bags are discharged together with the faulty bags which are parallel with this, in the bag manufacturing apparatus. However, it is also possible that only one slot of the memory element is closed, which is assigned to the channel with the faulty bag. All other bags would fall into their respective channels. In this case, have provided is desired that always the same number snus pouch leaves the magazine, the lower closure elements are controlled separately, since in the channel, the upper closure element was one bar closed. at any given time a bag is less than in the other channels, unless the latter are filled regularly.
