FIGS. 3 and 4 correspondingly show a schematic area take a look at the rewinder confined to the winding rollers as well as the unloading area as well as to the marking device 31 linked to explained surface.
The unloading surface or chute 27 is equipped with a couple of rollers 37 understanding a cradle into that your rolls R produced by the rewinder may be unloaded. As is known per se, are wound about a common mandrel, a series of coaxial rolls having the same diameter, from which the winding mandrel is extracted, will be placed on the unloading chute 27 at each cycle, as these rolls. The rolls R rest about the rollers 37, that happen to be rotated to create the rolls R rotate in regards to the axis thereof till the closing free of charge stop is experiencing upwards, i.e. towards head 41 in the marking machine 31, to ensure the second option can put personal-adhesive labeling (for instance printed by explained mind 41) to the tail for each roll. The labeling get the dual intent behind protecting against the net substance from unwinding from the roll in the following handling procedures and of marking every roll by using a code or another information and facts ideal for subsequent surgical procedures.
The head 41 is mounted on a carriage 43 which moves on guides for vertical sliding according to the double arrow f45 of a slide 45. The movement according to f45 allows the head 41 to be moved towards and away from the unloading surface or chute 27, to allow labeling of rolls R of different diameter. The carriage 43 can translate according to the double arrow f43 on a cross-member 47 equipped with sliding guides 49 to label in sequence all the rolls placed time by time on the unloading chute or surface 27. It really is comprehended that, need to this be needed, by way of example, because of the axial length of the moves, every single roll may be provided with over one label.
FIG. 5 schematically reveals a likely setup of the packaging line 9, while FIGS. 6A-6E show an enlargement of up coming areas of explained collection.
Research quantity 51 shows a first conveyor onto that your rolls R in the shuttle 11 from the rewinder are unloaded. The conveyor 51 feeds the single rolls according to the arrow f51 towards an area provided with equipment 53 for optional further labeling, e.g. on the periphery of each roll. According to an advantageous embodiment, illustrated herein, labeling takes place with the roll R lying on a vertical plane, i.e. with the axis thereof horizontal, before subsequent upending.
Downstream of the equipment 53 is an upender 55, which upends each roll of the group of rolls unloaded from the shuttle onto the conveyor 51 to position it with the axis thereof vertical, i.e. orthogonal, to the plane of the figure, according to a possible embodiment. In practice, rolls with modest axial measurements could be upended spontaneously, while people that have larger sized axial dimensions may be upended with the upender 55.
