PURPOSE OF THE PROJECT
This activity foresees the improvement study of the TOP assembled particular.
The TOP assembly must be improved in the coupling area, which today is obtained between the pourer and the lid.
Since the lid is made of PEBD and the pourer is made of SAN, it happens that sometimes, by unscrewing the capsule, a flap is formed that can be detached from the lid.
To avoid this we have carried out an improvement study between the various components which involves the remaking of the lid mold and the modification of the stem mold. (attached drawings)
CONTENTS OF R&D ACTIVITIES
The novelty elements are linked to the fact that we are going to create the coupling / assembly area of the lid with the other two components outside the coupling between the pourer and the lid and therefore during the capsule unscrewing phase the bibs due to interference will no longer be generated. coupling between pourer and lid, also because the coupling interference will be between two parts produced with the same material.
There are similar products on the market but with the coupling area made between lid and pourer and not between lid and stem
