Abstract

A pair of rigid cartridge halves 4 and 5 present confronting recesses 6 which cooperate to form a peripheral mismatch groove 7, as shown in the assembled condition of Fig. 2. The assembly of the cartridge halves 4 and 5 is completed by applying a hot melt adhesive bonding material in the groove 7. The adhesive 8 may be applied using standard commercial equipment by rotating the groove 7 beneath a fixed dispensing head or causing a movable adhesive dispensing head to move around the cartridge groove 7.

Rigid Cartridge Assembly Technique

A pair of rigid cartridge halves 4 and 5 present confronting recesses 6 which cooperate to form a peripheral mismatch groove 7, as shown in the assembled condition of Fig. 2. The assembly of the cartridge halves 4 and 5 is completed by applying a hot melt adhesive bonding material in the groove 7. The adhesive 8 may be applied using standard commercial equipment by rotating the groove 7 beneath a fixed dispensing head or causing a movable adhesive dispensing head to move around the cartridge groove 7.

This method of assembly affords a permanent tamper-proof assembly which is sealed while not requiring a gasket. The speed of effecting the bond with this process reduces the time that fixtures are required and thereby the number of fixtures, while having little possibility of contamination of the disk enclosed in the cartridge.
