Title (EN) AN APPARATUS FOR STACKING/DESTACKING BOXES
(FR) APPAREIL A EMPILER ET A DESEMPILER DES BOITES
Abstract:
(EN) An apparatus unique in that the same apparatus can be used for stacking or destacking boxes. The apparatus (1) is constructed as a frame with side frames (5, 6) which are vertical in the position of use and each of which journals a toothed belt (12) which is driven synchronously with the other toothed belt (12). Carrier means (21) are secured to the toothed belts (12) and have guide means (27) engaged with a guide groove (10) in each side frame (5, 6), so that the carrier means (21) maintain the same orientation when they are moved in the guide groove (10). A support means (22) on each carrier means (21) is adapted to engage a projection (23) on the box (3), if, and only if, a sensor means (25) registers that another box (3) has not been stacked on top of the box in question. Stacking or destacking with the apparatus is selected by the direction of rotation of a drive motor (14) for the toothed belts (12).
(FR) La présente invention se caractérise en ce que le même appareil peut être utilisé pour empiler ou désempiler des boîtes. Cet appareil (1) est conçu sous la forme d'une structure ayant des structures latérales (5, 6) qui sont disposées verticalement en position d'utilisation et sur chacune desquelles est tourillonnée une courroie dentée (12) entraînée en synchronisme avec l'autre courroie dentée (12). Des organes porteurs (21) sont fixés aux courroies dentées (12) et comportent des guides (27) s'engageant dans une rainure de guidage (10) ménagée dans chaque structure latérale (5, 6), de sorte que les organes porteurs (21) conservent la même orientation lorsqu'ils se déplacent dans la rainure de guidage (10). Un organe de support (22) placé sur chaque organe porteur (21) est destiné à se placer en prise avec une saillie (23) se trouvant sur la boîte (3), uniquement lorsqu'un organe capteur (25) détecte qu'une autre boîte (3) n'est pas empilée sur la boîte en question. Les opérations d'empilement et de désempilement au moyen d'un tel appareil sont sélectionnées par la direction de rotation d'un moteur d'entraînement (14) des courroies dentées (12).
