We claim:
1. Loading device for at least one of a kneader and a screw-type extruding machine, comprising:
a feed chute having a loading opening located in a side of the feed chute, and a separate entrance opening, the feed chute being bent in a circular arc shape and extending to the at least one of the kneader and screw-type extruding machine; and
at least one tamping tool located within said feed chute and projecting through the entrance opening, said at least one tamping tool including a front plate, said at least one tamping tool being bent in a circular arc shape corresponding to the circular arc shape of said feed chute and being pivotable around a pivot point that forms a mid-point of the circular arc shape of both said feed chute and said at least one tamping tool, the front plate following a circular arc-shaped path of movement.
2. Loading device as defined in claim 1, further comprising cooling bores, on an underside of the at least one tamping tool.
3. Loading device as defined in claim 1, further comprising one of a plurality of strippers and bristles; wherein said at least one tamping tool has an underside having grooves for receiving the at least one of said bristles and said strippers.
4. Loading device as defined in claim 1, further comprising drive means for actuating said at least one tamping tool as a bell-crank lever whereby the pivoting of the at least one tamping tool is effected.
5. Loading device as defined in claim 1, wherein said at least one tamping tool comprises two contiguous tamping tools.
6. Loading device for a screw-type extruding machine as defined in claim 5, wherein each said tamping tool has a path of movement each extending opposite one another in a plane that is transverse to a barrel extruder of the screw-type extruding machine, the feed chute having a planar wall in a region of the tamping tools that is provided with an opening for the passage of each said tamping tool, and the tamping tools being seated to pivot around respective pivot axes, the respective pivot axes being in an extension of the feed chute on both sides of the barrel extruder at a height of the barrel extruder and parallel to the barrel extruder.
7. Loading device as defined in claim 6, wherein each said tamping tool has a front plate and a side wall, each said side wall having a length that corresponds to a stroke of the tamping tools, each said side wall adjoining the respective front plate in the direction of the path of movement.
8. Loading device as defined in claim wherein the feed chute has a transition wall, the feed chute being provided with inwardly-oriented strippers in a region of the respective side wall on a side remote from the barrel extruder, and the front plate of each said respective tamping tool is provided on a side of said tamping tool facing the pivot axes with a stripper edge that glides along the transition wall of the feed chute, the transition wall being bent in a direction toward the barrel extruder to accommodate the movement of the two tamping tools.
9. Loading device as defined in claim 1, wherein said at least one tamping tool is pivotable to be completely out of said feed chute.
