  • Patent number: 8065862
    Abstract: A method and a device for packaging a confectionery product (P) in a shaped wrapper of sheet material (1, 2) having a cup-shaped portion (1c, 2c) (pleated cup) formed from the same sheet material as the product wrapper; the method and the device comprise the use or a mandrel with petals (14a, 14b) which cooperates with a forming cavity (11) and which may assume a retracted configuration so that it can penetrate into the forming cavity to shape the wrapper into a cup shape adhering to the product. The packaging is characterized in that the wrapper has a central region (2a) on which the product bears and from which the cup extends with a transverse dimension (or diameter) smaller than the maximum transverse dimension of the packaged product.

  • Publication number: 20110240588
    Abstract: A container comprises a containment body having a main axis and a mouth or neck part, the opening of which defines a mouth plane of the container oriented in a direction transverse with respect to the main axis, where applied on at least part of the container is a tubular sleeve of film material shrunk on the container itself. The tubular sleeve has at least one end edge having, in different points of its angular development, different distances from the mouth plane. Preferentially, the container is likewise provided with at least one sculptured annular edge having a profile homologous to the profile of the aforesaid end edge of the tubular sleeve, and the sleeve is applied on the container with said end edge coinciding with the aforesaid sculptured annular edge having the homologous profile.

  • Patent number: 7866129
    Abstract: Described herein is a shuttle device for producing wrappers of sheet material (F) containing a product (P) with at least one fantail-twisted end obtained by twisting said sheet material (F). The shuttle (10) comprises a first part (112a, 112b) for receiving the product (P) located in the precursor of wrapper and at least one second part (212a, 212b; 312a, 312b) that grips on a respective part of precursor of wrapper (F). The first part (112a, 112b) and the second part (212a, 212b; 312a, 312b) of the shuttle (10) are able to turn with respect to one another about a given axis (X10) so as to produce at least one fantail-twisted end as a result of the twisting action imparted on the precursor of wrapper (F) following upon the relative movement of rotation about the aforesaid given axis (X10).

  • Publication number: 20100303979
    Abstract: The complementary parts of food products destined to be coupled together are located on the frontal surfaces of half-moulds travelling on two different loop conveyor lines. The first conveyor line extends, at least partially, above the second, so to be included within the surface area occupied by the second line itself. Spatial occupation is further reduced since, downstream to the coupling station, the coupled half-moulds travel with the same spacing step that they had before coupling, with additional advantages in terms of energy absorption and advancing velocity in a successive thermal conditioning station, such as a refrigerating tunnel. One of the half-moulds can be removed upstream to the thermal conditioning station, resulting in an additional reduction in energy absorption since needless subjecting of the half-mould to the thermal cycle to which the products are subjected is avoided.

  • Publication number: 20100276328
    Abstract: A method for wrapping a product in a sheet material wrapper employing a first sheet of plastically deformable sheet material (for example aluminium) and a second sheet of wrapping material (for example a plastic film) having springback. Once the product is placed on the first sheet, the second sheet is applied on the product providing in the second sheet a part wrapping the product and a part facing the first sheet. The first sheet and the part of said second sheet facing it are airtight-seal coupled so to form, by effect of the coupling, a plastically deformable composite sheet material against the product or to form an integral housing cup.

  • Patent number: 7797949
    Abstract: A device for molding foodstuff masses comprises: one or more molds (14) provided with sockets (16) which define pouring cavities; inserts (22) made of thermally conductive material associated, in a relationship of heat exchange, with the pouring cavities (16); and thermal-conditioning units (24), such as Peltier cells, associated to the inserts made of thermally conductive material (2). There is present a control unit (34) for generating signals for control of the thermal-conditioning units (24) so as to provide cycles of thermal treatment of the material undergoing selectively pre-determined pouring. A preferential application is in the sector of the confectionery industry.

  • Publication number: 20100179676
    Abstract: The system comprises a conveyor for conveying a plurality of moulds along a production path on which is located a plurality of stations, each of which can execute at least one corresponding operation. Each mould carries an electronic identification device including memory devices from and to which information or data can be read and written without contact by means of an antenna. Each station is provided with an electronic unit including a processor, having memory devices and at least one antenna, and designed to read and/or write information or data from or to the memory devices of a mould passing through the station. An initial input station transfers or writes to the memory devices of each mould passing through it information identifying the products to be formed in the mould and relating to corresponding forming operations.

  • Publication number: 20100086652
    Abstract: An hermetic package for food products (P), such as confectionary products, chocolates, pralines, chocolate eggs, etc., including a wrapper of sheet material airtight sealed (2) around the product (P) and having one, or preferably two, extremity portions (3) twisted bow-like according to a general candy-like configuration. The bow or each bow (3) has a distal edge (3a) with a zigzag patterned or other shaped incision (4) susceptible of providing a triggering point for the tearing of the wrapper. Preferably, the wrapping material is an oriented film.

  • Publication number: 20080220142
    Abstract: In order to make a granulated substance (G) of an aerated foodstuff, such as granulated meringue, said substance having an outer surface that appears continuous to the naked eye, an alveolar (18) structure (12) is provided, and a liquid precursor of the aerated foodstuff (for example, the so-called “meringue foamed mixture” in the case of meringue) is introduced (20, 22) into the cavities (18) of the structure. Consolidation of the precursor introduced into the cavities (18), obtained, for example, via heating (24), leads to the formation, in the aforesaid cavities (18), of respective particles of granulate (G), which are finally extracted from the cavities (18), typically exploiting the deformation of the material constituting the alveolar structure.
