Title
(EN) DIVERTER AND ON-EDGE STACKER
(FR) DEVIATEUR/EMPILEUSE SUR CHANT
Abstract
(EN)
A diverter and on-edge stacker for diverting and on-edge stacking of envelopes is disclosed. The diverter and on-edge stacker includes an envelope conveying path (13) along which the envelopes are conveyed to a device (18) for diverting an envelope by intercepting a lateral portion of the leading edge thereby skewing the envelope. A stepper motor (24) drives a spider wheel (14) having legs (26) and gaps (28) for receiving diverted envelopes. Revolving rollers (38) capture and drive the skewed envelopes from the conveying path (13) into a gap (28) of the spider wheel (14). A sensor (34) senses an envelope driven into a spider wheel gap (28) to control rotation of the spider wheel (14) by one gap pitch.
(FR)
On décrit un déviateur/empileuse sur chant pour enveloppes, qui comprend une piste de transport (13) d'enveloppes où ces dernières sont transportées vers un dispositif (18) pouvant dévier une enveloppe en interceptant une partie latérale de son bord avant, ce qui permet d'entraÎner cette enveloppe. Un moteur pas-à-pas (24) entraîne un dérouleur en étoile (14), doté de pointes (26) et de creux (28), qui reçoit des enveloppes déviées. Des rouleaux tournants (38) saisissent et entraînent les enveloppes, placées en biais, de la piste de transport (13) vers un creux (28) du dérouleur en étoile (14). Un capteur (34) détecte une enveloppe entraînée vers ce creux (28) pour commander la rotation du dérouleur en étoile (14) vers le creux suivant.
