Title: (EN) Egg packer apparatus
Abstract:
(EN) An egg packer apparatus is disclosed having baskets (30) mounted on a transport movable in a continuous path. The baskets (30) have compartments (48, 50, 52) one beside the other. Eggs (8) are fed into the compartments (48, 50, 52) and the baskets (30) move from the loading station to an inverted position at an unloading station. In the inverted position, the eggs roll along a cover (60) to provide lateral movement of the egg in the direction of its pointed end. The unloading station has chutes (62, 64) to receive only the blunt end half of the egg as it rolls along. The egg drops into the chute blunt end first. The egg topples forwardly down the chute and drops pointed end downwardly into an egg flat (66).
