Abstract: Particular aesthetic requirements are made in respect of tube bodies for packaging tubes. An extrusion tube fulfills demands of that kind, better than a foil tube with a welded seam. There is disclosed a process for the production of a foil tube which substantially corresponds to the aesthetic particularities of an extrusion tube.
Abstract: In an apparatus for the production of tubular bodies such as tubes from a foil strip including a weldable plastic material, the longitudinal edges of which are welded together between two endless belts under the effect of heat and pressure with subsequent cooling, part of a belt runs against a mandrel in which individual portions thereof can be set to different temperatures to provide for selective control of the belt in order to increase the rate of production.
Abstract: Of two edges (14, 16) to be joined together of a multilayer foil, the inner edge (16) is obliquely trimmed in the longitudinal direction prior to the pressing together in such a way that the layer (6) located remote from the surfaces (10, 12) to be pressed together protrudes beyond the other layers. If the two layers (14, 16) are pressed together during the welding operation by means of two tool elements, not shown, then the inner layer (6) of the inner edge (16) overflows so as to form one uninterrupted layer with the inner layer (6) of the outer edge (14). When the foil is used as packaging material, in particular as a tubular liner for a packaging tube, it is assured that the product to be packaged will come into contact only with the inner layer (6), so that an undesirable reaction with one of the other layers is avoided.
Abstract: The production of a tubular container is effected by rolling and lap-welding a multi-ply foil to form a cylindrical tube body (1), the arrangement of a collar (5) which partially closes this tube body (1) at the top, and the production of a head piece (4) of plastics material, which on the one hand connects the tube body (1) to the collar (5) and on the other hand forms the top closure of the tube. The collar (5) has a simple basic form before working and is brought by the working into a form in which its cut edges can be covered by plastics material flowing thereover, this shaping requiring no additional working operation, but being effected by the forces set up during the moulding process of the plastics material. Further by the shaping of the collar (5), the spacing between the collar and the tube body is reduced, thereby further improving protection against diffusion.
Abstract: A moulding tool for producing tube ends and simultaneously connecting them to a tube body, the tool comprising a female mould (1) and a male mould (19) and having a pin movably disposed in the female mould and a bore (22) in the male mould. The pin has a conical portion (25) extending into a conical part (23) of the bore and, when the mould is closed, co-operates with the bore to form a cavity (30) connected to a mould cavity between the male mould (19) and the female mould (1).
Abstract: A blank is formed out of plasticizable, heated plastic by means of an extruding-type material supply head. A somewhat lenticular profiling of the blank is obtained by appropriately controlling a closing member of the material supply head, which is built as a valve cone. When the closing member is closed off against the lower edge of a tube part of the material supply head, the blank is pinched off from the material supply. A flow of air emerging from the ring nozzle serves to ensure complete severance of the blank from the material supply head. After that has been accomplished, the blank enters an open shaping cavity of a die by free fall. By further movement of the die, which is located on a rotary table, the die removes itself from the permanently located material supply head, so that the blank lying in the cavity can be pressed into a molded article by a stamp. Cooling off too much in certain locations on the blank is prevented by the free fall of the blank into the shaping cavity.
