Title (EN) AUTOMATIC VENDING MACHINE
(FR) DISTRIBUTEUR AUTOMATIQUE
Abstract:
(EN) A vending machine in which articles are stored dispenses articles one by one by through respective feeding paths from an outlet. A main lane (4) supports a carton (6) containing a plurality of articles therein which can be loaded directly into a main feeding lane. At least one auxiliary lane (5A) adjacent to the main lane supports a plurality of articles which can be loaded individually into the machine. The carton supported on the main lane is designed with a portion which can be opened, and a stopper (11) is designed so as to retain articles within the carton unless no articles are located in the auxiliary lane. For vending, the auxiliary lane (5A) is depleted first, whereafter articles stored in the carton are vended.
(FR) Distributeur automatique dans lequel les articles sont stockés pour être délivrés un par un par des voies d'alimentation respectives à partir d'un orifice. Un rail principal (4) supporte un carton (6) contenant une pluralité d'articles qui peuvent être chargés directement dans une voie d'alimentation principale. Au moins une des voies auxiliaires (5A) voisine de la voie principale, supporte une pluralité d'articles qui peuvent être chargés individuellement dans la machine. Le carton qui est supporté par le rail principal possède une partie pouvant être ouverte, et un arrêt (11) sert à retenir les articles à l'intérieur du carton sauf si aucun article ne se trouve dans la voie auxiliaire. Pour la distribution, la voie auxiliaire (5A) est tout d'abord équipée, après quoi les articles stockés dans le carton sont vendus.
