  • Patent number: 6340440
    Abstract: A method for producing a tubular container of plastic material, in which the plastic material is supplied to an injection mould (3) which forms therein a blank (1) including a blank body (15) with a tubular portion (16). The tubular portion is open at one end (11) and has, in its other end (10), an emptying aperture or mouth (12) of the future container with a closure device thereat. The tubular portion (16) is displaced or drawn through an annular gap (4) for reduction of the wall thickness and axial extension thereof. After extension, the tubular portion is cut to the desired length. The thickness of the drawn material is between 0.1 and 0.15 mm. The closure device is confined within an outline formed by the drawn wall of the tubular portion.

  • Patent number: 5656225
    Abstract: A method for producing a squeezable, thin-walled tube container of orientable plastic material in which the container includes a mouth portion, a squeezable thin-walled tubular container body having an open bottom-forming portion and a connecting portion located between the mouth portion and the container body and in which the mouth portion and the connecting portion consists of non-oriented material includes forcing the non-oriented material in the tube portion, by mechanical means, through a gap with a gap width at most amounting to approximately half the wall thickness of the material in the tube portion for orientation of the material passing through the gap, thereby obtaining substantially monoaxial orientation of the material which forms the container body and the open bottom-forming portion of the thin-walled squeezable tube container.
