Title (EN) INSTALLATION FOR TRANSPORT AND CONTROLLED DISTRIBUTION
(FR) INSTALLATION DE TRANSPORT ET DE DISTRIBUTION COMMANDEE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)In the installation for transport and distribution, electric self-driven vehicles change track automatically and without interruption at horizontal and/or vertical junctions by means of a set of moving wheels. The wheels are arranged on either side of the rails during running and track changing and the drive is maintained during and after track changing operations. The power supply and the transmission of control signals are maintained during and after track changing operations. The wheels which are arranged on either side of the rails are automatically locked and may be unlocked manually allowing the withdrawal of the transport vehicles from or their introduction into the network them therein. The transport vehicles are provided with active coupling which are used for attaching them to or detaching them from loading supports and/or containers which are activated only at stations and which may be actuated by the vehicle itself and/or as a passive element. The loading support and the containers comprise passive element receiving the coupling members of the vehicle and are provided with wheels allowing the motion thereof on a secondary rail which is independent from the transport rail. The secondary rail is parallel to the transport rail at the location where the coupling or uncoupling takes place. Driven or self-driven driving members, allowing the loading and the unloading of the containers at stations, are provided with hooks, may move on secondary rails separated from the transport rails and may perform, according to their horizontal or vertical position, horizontal or vertical push or pull motions for the loading and unloading of the containers.
(FR)Dans l"installation de transport et de distribution, des vehicules autotractes electriques changent de voies automatiquement et sans solution de continuite aux bifurcations horizontales et/ou verticales au moyen d"un ensemble de roues mobiles. Les roues sont disposees de part et d"autre des rails pendant la marche et pendant les manoeuvres de changement de voie et l"entrainement est maintenu pendant et apres les manoeuvres de changement de voie. L"alimentation en courant et la transmission des signaux de commande sont maintenues pendant et apres les manoeuvres de changement de voie. Les roues qui sont disposees de part et d"autre des rails sont automatiquement verrouillees et peuvent etre deverrouillees manuellement permettant de sortir du circuit les vehicules de transport ou de les y introduire. Les vehicules de transport sont munis d"accouplements actifs qui servent a les solidariser ou a les desolidariser de supports de charge et /ou de conteneurs qui ne sont actives qu"aux stations et qui peuvent etre actionnes par le vehicule lui-meme et/ou comme element passif. Les supports de charge et les conteneurs comprennent des elements passifs recevant les organes d"accouplement des vehicules et sont pourvus de roues permettant leur mouvement sur un rail secondaire qui est independant des rails de transport. Le rail secondaire est parallele au rail de transport a l"endroit ou l"attelage ou le detelage a lieu. Des organes d"entrainement autonomes ou entraines, permettant de charger ou de decharger les conteneurs aux stations, sont munis de grappins, peuvent se deplacer sur des rails secondaires separes des rails de transport et peuvent executer, selon leur disposition horizontale ou verticale, des mouvements de poussee ou de traction horizontaux ou verticaux pour le chargement et le dechargement des conteneurs.
