Title (EN) CONVEYOR FOR TRANSPORTING A SUSPENDED ARTICLE
(FR) TRANSPORTEUR POUR ARTICLES SUSPENDUS
Abstract:
(EN) A conveyor for transporting a suspended article is provided comprising at least one carriage (1) from which the article can be suspended and a rotary rod (4) to support the carriage (1) and any article suspended thereon. The carriage (1) has a wheel (2, 3) arranged to transfer at least part of the load of said carriage (1) to said rod (4) and so as to trace helical path over the surface of the rod (4) when the rod (4) is rotated relative to the carriage (1). The carriage (1) can then be driven along the rod (4) by frictional contact with the wheel (2, 3).
(FR) Transporteur pour articles suspendus comportant au moins un chariot (1) auquel l'article peut être suspendu, ainsi qu'une tringle rotative (4) destinée à porter le chariot (1) et tout article suspendu à celui-ci. Le chariot (1) possède une roue (2, 3) configurée pour transmettre au moins une partie de la charge dudit chariot (1) à ladite tringle (4) et pour suivre un parcours hélicoïdal sur la surface de la tringle (4) lorsque celle-ci s'anime d'un mouvement rotatif relatif au chariot (1). Le chariot (1) peut ensuite se déplacer sur la tringle (4) grâce à un contact de frottement avec la roue (2, 3).
