Constricting Closure By Binding Patents (Class 53/424)
  • Patent number: 8607534
    Abstract: The invention relates to a method for applying capsules (1) to a plastic container (54) which is aseptically filled with a liquid and which is weld-sealed with a membrane (80). The capsule (1) to be applied, which preferably is constituted of two aluminum foils (2, 6) having a collar (58), is placed on the membrane (80) with a planar surface thereof and the collar is mechanically bent so that it is reliably secured to the container neck (50). The cap (100) is then pressed onto it so that the collar (58) is retained between the container neck (50) and the cap (100) in a form-and in a force-locking connection. The method according to the invention avoids the risk of the capsule being destroyed, which can happen during welding, and the risk of soiling, which can happen during gluing.

  • Publication number: 20090139187
    Abstract: Methods are disclosed for making a band-driven package or a band-drive component for a package, and machines for performing the methods. One method comprises feeding first and second flexible webs in a feed direction, one web being fed each side of a substrate such that the webs are in mutual face-to-face disposition ahead of and behind the substrate with respect to the feed direction; joining the face-to-face webs at a first join ahead of the substrate and at a second join behind the substrate, the joins bounding web portions that together encircle the substrate between the joins; and dividing the joined web portions from the remainder of the webs such that the joined web portions together define a band that encircles the substrate, to be slid around the substrate in use of the package.

  • Patent number: 4364511
    Abstract: A tube of film material for enclosing food has a closure tie with a suspension loop, the enclosure tie including the knot lying in a recess in the pleated tip of the film material. The recess in which the tie is located is formed by softening the tube by heating, for example, with warm air, infrared radiation, ultrasonic means, by previously heating the tie filament, or by treating the film material with solvents or softening agents. Apparatus is disclosed for carrying out the process.
