Title (EN) AN APPARATUS FOR HOLLOWING ROOT VEGETABLES
(FR) APPAREIL D'EVIDEMENT DE LEGUMES TUBEREUX
Abstract:
(EN) An apparatus for hollowing potatoes and other differently shaped and/or sized tubers, fruits, root vegetables or the like comprises means (18, 20) for detecting the dimension of each plant part, means (19, 21) for forming a hollow space in each plant part, and control means (31) for controlling the movement of the forming means in response to dimension signals received from the detecting means, so as to adapt the inner dimensions of the hollow space being formed to the outer dimensions of the plant part. Thus, the hollow spaces being formed in the differently shaped and/or sized plant parts may be individually adapted to the shape and size of the plant parts in a mechanical automated process.
(FR) Un appareil d'évidement de pommes de terre et d'autres tubercules, fruits, légumes tubéreux de formes et/ou de tailles différentes, ou analogues, comprend des moyens (18, 20) détectant la dimension de chaque partie de plantes, des moyens (19, 21) formant un espace creux dans chaque partie de plantes, ainsi qu'un moyen de commande (31) destiné à commander le mouvement des moyens de formation en réponse à des signaux de dimensions reçus des moyens de détection, de manière à adapter les dimensions intérieures de l'espace creux formé aux dimensions extérieures de la partie de plante. Ainsi, les espaces creux formés dans les parties de plantes de formes et/ou de tailles différentes, peuvent être adaptés individuellement à la forme et à la taille des parties de plantes dans un procédé mécanique automatique.
