Abstract (en)

[origin: EP0773161A1] The machine consists of a moulding unit (10) to shape the containers from thermoplastic sheet material (12). A dosing unit (16) delivers a first product into certain compartments of the containers. A sealing unit (18) is provided for the first compartments. A second dosing unit (20) is provided for a second product into a second series of compartments. A second sealing unit (22) is also provided for the second compartments. All these units are followed by a cutter (24) which separates the containers individually or in groups. The machine has a system of guides (32), between the first and second dosing units, which positions a first strip or part of a strip of a sealing material over the filled compartments. There are more guides after the second dosing unit to cover the second filled compartments with a strip or part of a strip of sealing material.
