Title (EN) IMPROVEMENTS IN BUNDLE TURNING UNITS FOR USE WITH CONVEYORS
(FR) AMELIORATIONS APPORTEES AUX ENSEMBLES DE ROTATION DE PAQUETS A CERCLER UTILISEES AVEC DES CONVOYEURS
Abstract:
(EN) A bundle turning unit (1) of the in-line type has a turntable in the form of a lift member (3) of annular outline, which is housed within a platen (2). The lift member (3) is movable between a lowered retracted position and a raised operative position in which the lift member (3) can also be rotated. With the lift member (3) in the retracted position a bundle is fed to the turntable until it co-operates with stop means (9, 10) in which position it is superimposed over the lift member (3). The bundle is then raised above the platen (2) by the lift member (3), the stop means (9, 10) are retracted into the platen (2) and the bundle is rotated through 90°. The lift member (3) then lowers the bundle onto the conveyor transit means (11, 12) which convey the bundle from the turntable in the same direction as the feed.
(FR) Un ensemble (1) de rotation de paquets à cercler du type en ligne comporte une table tournante sous la forme d'un élément de levage (3) à profil annulaire, qui est logée dans une plaque de base (2). L'élément de levage (3) peut se déplacer entre une position inférieure rentrée et une position d'utilisation surélevée, dans laquelle l'élément de levage (3) peut également être tourné. Lorsque l'élément de levage (3) se trouve dans la position rentrée, un paquet à cercler est amené à la table tournante jusqu'à ce qu'il coopère avec un moyen d'arrêt (9, 10), et dans cette position il est superposé sur l'élément de levage (3). Le paquet à cercler est ensuite remonté au-dessus de la plaque de base (2) par l'élément de levage (3). Les moyens d'arrêt (9, 10) sont rentrés dans la plaque de base (2) et le paquet à cercler est tourné sur 90°. L'élément de levage (3) abaisse ensuite le paquet sur le moyen de transport à convoyeur (11, 12), qui, depuis la table tournante le transporte dans la direction d'alimentation.
