Honeycomb making machine
US 3713954 A
Abstract
A continuous honeycombed paper making machine is provided which transforms the output of four paper stock rolls into a continuous core of honeycombed material. The machine comprises four sections: a gluer; sheet stacker; pad slicer; and slice combiner. The gluer forms a continuous 4-ply web from the stock rolls by applying adhesive in staggered, longitudinal stripes to the top and bottom surfaces of the first or topmost and third plys. The sheeter-stacker cuts and trims the 4-ply web and accumulates a quantity of sheets into a stack where adjacent sheets are bonded to one another by virtue of the adhesive on the top surface of the topmost ply and then compresses the stack to form a pad. The pad slicer slices each pad into slices extending transverse to the adhesive stripes. The slice combiner applies adhesive to each slice and then positions them in a vertical column where the slices are bonded to one another to form the desired continuous core.
