FIG. 2 shows the same parts and details as in FIG. =1,
but the outer and inner mould members are in position
for compression of the pulp ?lled into the shaping space

FIG. 3 shows the same parts as the previous ?gures but
mersed in the soil together with a herb, and in the form

if desired it is possible to insert into the opening 7 an

axially displaceable lining or ring 11 having an internal
mould member of a machine having two relatively mov

able mould members is provided with a nose which ex

When the compacting of the pulp has taken place, as
to cooperate with the ?lling-in opening of the correspond

at once when the inner mould member is started to move.
The invention thus relates to an improvement in a ma
chine for moulding or forming of pulp, especially of ?ber
pulp, comprising a compression arrangement consisting of
an outer and an inner mould member, which are movable
through a conduit 12, the article 13 now formed, e.g. a
funnel for the purpose above mentioned, should be re
moved, and the outer mould member 1 is raised at the
same time as the inner mould member 2 is lowered to the
initial position. A support 14 is then introduced below
the outer mould member 1 and is automatically or manu
relative to each other, so that pulp enclosed between said
ally so displaced that the ring or lining 11 ejects the pro
mould members may become compacted and freed from 55 duced article 13. The articles made ready are trans

The embodiment shown only serves to illustrate the in
the outer mould member, so that the nose will close the

In a preferred embodiment of the invention the same
