Abstract (en)

The machine (100) includes a first line (1) which feeds articles (2) to a forming station (10), in which groups (20) of articles are formed. A second line (5), arranged beside the first one, includes a working station (50) in which a container (4) is erected, obtained from a flat folded tubular blank (4a). The second working station (50) includes folding means (60) which close first the bottom of the container (4), and after the container (4) has been filled, also the cover thereof. The container (4) is filled by introducing one group of articles (20) at a time, until a first layer is completed. Pushing means (14) aimed at introducing the groups of articles (20) perform strokes of programmed amplitude corresponding to the position of the group of articles (20) in the respective layer. The second conveying line (5) is carried by a platform (55) having a variable height, which is lowered by an entity corresponding to the articles (2) height each time a layer has been completed. After the cover of the container (4) has been closed, the latter is sent to the outlet of the second working station (50), where taping means (70) operate, so as to close and fix the bottom and cover. <IMAGE>
