Title
(EN) Mobile support unit for a conveyor for transferring objects, and conveyor for transferring objects comprising said mobile support unit
Abstract
(EN)

Support unit for a conveyor of objects comprising a plurality of support bodies reciprocally pivoted with respect to each other to define a closed ring and suitable to slide in a guide of the conveyor along a closed path, said support bodies each being provided with at least a flat plate and with at least an anchoring base solidly associated to the plate and suitable to support sliding means suitable to slide on the guide. Each plate is provided with opposite pivoting ends configured to pivot, by means of pivoting means, with respective pivoting ends of an adjacent plate which follows and respectively which precedes so as to define the reciprocal connection between the support bodies. Each plate is made of an elastically flexible material at least with respect to its thickness, to adapt to curves defined by the guide.
