  • Patent number: 7254878
    Abstract: A supply unit supplies a film strip from a film roll, and a winding unit cuts off a film strip into a fixed-length film and winds the fixed-length film around a spool to produce a wound-film assembly. An assembling unit introduces the wound-film assembly into a one-open-sided cartridge, and mounts and crimps a cap on the one-open-sided cartridge to produce a wound-film-loaded cartridge. After a pullout resistance of the film and a film length to be exposed are inspected, the wound-film-loaded cartridge is unloaded as a product.

  • Patent number: 6948237
    Abstract: A method and an apparatus for manufacturing a film cartridge operable at high speed. A film cartridge comprised of a rounded ribbon plate and a cap clinched to the end of the rounded ribbon plate is produced using an apparatus including plural assembly chucks, an index unit for holding the assembly chucks at equi-angular intervals about a rotation axis and a driving unit for intermittently rotating the index unit. The method includes a step of introducing a rounded ribbon plate into an assembly chuck, a step of introducing a cap to a side end of the cylindrically rounded ribbon plate, in conjunction with the ribbon plate introducing step, when the assembly chuck holding the rounded ribbon plate is halted at a different halt position, and a step of clinching the cap to the ribbon plate, in conjunction with the ribbon plate introducing step, when the assembly chuck holding the ribbon plate having the cap inserted therein is halted at a further different halt position.

  • Patent number: 6905265
    Abstract: In a loading position of a manufacturing apparatus, a cartridge attracted and held by a magnet of a holding member of a cartridge loading mechanism is held on a vertically movable table of a case holding device while being guided by a tapered inner circumferential surface of a rotating guide tubular body, and is inserted into a case disposed in a guide tubular body while being guided by a tapered opening. The cartridge that is inserted in the case is attracted by a magnet mounted on the vertically movable table and having stronger magnetic forces than the magnet, and is released from the magnetic attraction by the magnet and loaded into the case.

  • Patent number: 6704999
    Abstract: When any of facilities of a film producing and packaging system suffers a failure, a film processing controller shuts off the film producing and packaging system. The operator repairs a failing facility and manually discharges a length of an elongate film which may possibly be defective. After the failing facility is repaired, the film processing controller is restarted to operate the film producing and packaging system, which then automatically discharges a length of the elongate film corresponding to a preset number of sized films. It is possible to easily and quickly discard a portion of the elongate film which has been made defective by the facility failure.
