Abstract (en)

[origin: EP0987205A1] The loop buffer (16,19) accommodates a loop of moving, flexible material between a delivery section in which the material moves at a delivery speed and an output region in which it moves at a different speed. The storage device has a first traction mechanism (335,55) on the delivery side for pulling the material into it and a separate second traction mechanism (35,56) on the output side for pulling the material into the storage device An Independent claim is also included for an embossing arrangement, esp. a heat embossing arrangement.
