Abstract (en)

The cigarette box producing process produces packs (10) from thin card with an outer cover (13) of shrink wrap. The folding tabs (e.g. 23-26) of the outer cover and bonded to each other by full-surface thermal seals. The head of this process shrinks the wrap. Before full surface sealing, the folding tabs are tacked to each other by means of a tacking seal with small limited sealing surfaces.

Abstract (de)

Verfahren zum Herstellen von Packungen (10) aus dünnem Karton mit einer Außenumhüllung (13) aus einer Schrumpffolie. Faltlappen (20, 21; 23, 24, 25, 26) der Außenumhüllung (13) werden durch vollflächiges thermisches Siegeln miteinander verbunden. Dadurch kann der Schrumpfprozess für die Außenumhüllung (13) eingeleitet werden. Um eine korrekte Form der Außenumhüllung (13) zu gewährleisten, werden die Faltlappen (20, 21; 23, 24, 25, 26) vor dem vollflächigen Siegeln durch eine Heftsiegelung mit kleinen, begrenzten Siegelflächen miteinander verbunden und danach vollflächig gesiegelt. <IMAGE>
