Abstract (en)

Products of parallelepiped shape are packaged in wrappers (7) with two end folds (21), fashioned by folding a sheet (6) of wrapping material initially to obtain a part-enveloping tubular sheath with a flap (18) of each end fold (21) projecting beyond a corresponding corner edge (13) of the product (5). The wrapper is completed by advancing the product in a direction parallel to the corner edges (13) and through a conditioning station (S) where the flaps (18) are first made to curl temporarily, each along an intermediate band (31) located between the edge (19) joined to the wrapper which coincides with the line of the relative end fold (21) and with the corner edge (13), and a free edge (20) opposite the joined edge (19), then gummed along a further band (33) located between the intermediate band (31) and the free edge (20); thereafter, each flap (18) is bent square along the joined edge (19) and flattened against the product (5) <IMAGE>
