Title (EN) CONVEYOR LOADING APPARATUS
(FR) APPAREIL DE CHARGEMENT DE CONVOYEUR
Abstract:
(EN) An apparatus (1) for loading articles (2) onto a moving conveyor, the apparatus including: (a) transport means (3a, 3b, 3c) on the conveyor which includes holding means (5) adapted to engage at least a portion of an article (2) so as to hold the article (2) in connected relation with the conveyor; and (b) locating means (6) operable to cause an article (2) positioned thereon to move into a position in which it can thereafter be engaged by the holding means (5); wherein the transport means (3a, 3b, 3c) and the locating means (6) are co-operable such that the article (2) can be caused to be moved on the locating means (6) with the transport means (3a, 3b, 3c) prior to being engaged by the holding means (5).
(FR) La présente invention concerne un appareil de chargement (1) d'articles (2) sur un convoyeur en mouvement. Cet appareil se compose: (a) d'un organe de transport (3a, 3b, 3c) monté sur le convoyeur et incluant des organes de retenue (5) conçus pour entrer en contact avec au moins une partie d'un article (2) de façon à maintenir l'article (2) en relation de contact avec le convoyeur; et (b) d'un organe de positionnement (6) dont la mise en oeuvre permet de disposer l'article (2) sur le convoyeur de façon à mettre cet article dans une position permettant qu'il entre ensuite au contact des organes de retenue (5). L'organe de transport (3a, 3b, 3c) et l'organe de positionnement (6) coopèrent de façon conjointe de façon que l'organe de transport (3a, 3b, 3c) provoque le déplacement de l'article (2) sur l'organe de positionnement (6) avant que l'article n'entre en contact avec l'organe de retenue (5).
