Abstract (en)

The method of attaching a ticket to an article of merchandise involves sliding a tubular ticket carrier (1) onto a cord (2) and forming it into a loop. The ends of the loop are placed into a clip which is then pressed around them to retain them and the tubular carrier together. The cord can be cut simultaneously with the clipping operation.

Abstract (fr)

Le procédé consiste à étiqueter un objet (1) au moyen d'un lien souple (2) portant une étiquette (3). On solidarise le lien souple avec l'objet en formant une boucle fermée avec le lien souple. Après avoir formé la boucle fermée avec le lien souple, on relie les deux brins (2', 2") de la boucle en sertissant une cosse (4) sur ces deux brins. Application : étiquetage d'articles en vrac. <IMAGE>
