Abstract (en)

A wrap filling mechanism comprises a wrap holder (12,13,14,20,21) with a chute (11) above it. The chute has at its lower end a set of fingers (32,43,44) mounted at their upper ends so that their lower ends converge. The fingers (32,43,44) can be lowered (29,31) into the upper open end of a wrap held in the wrap holder, and are flexible so that they open outwardly as a bouquet falls through them and so expand the upper end of the wrap. The lower end of the chute is castellated (33) with the fingers (32,43,44) curving inwardly through the castellations. The fingers (32,43,44) may also be mechanically controlled (45) to be brought together or opened out, and a flexible sleeve (46) may be provided inside the fingers (32,43,44). Means for opening the wraps are also described. <IMAGE>
