Title
(EN) PACKAGING MACHINE
(FR) MACHINE A EMBALLER
Abstract
(EN)
A packaging machine (5) for moving spaced groups of containers along a packaging line is disclosed. The packaging machine (5) includes a variable pitch lugged conveyor belt assembly (12) having a pair of equally spaced conveyor chains (61, 62) and a pair of side guides (17) mounted on a pair of accessory rails (14) movably supported on the packaging machine framework (7) along opposite sides of the packaging line. The conveyor chains (61, 62) are laterally movable. The side guides (17) and accessory rails (14) are simultaneously moved laterally as the conveyor chains (61, 62) are moved. Each conveyor chain (61, 62) includes spaced pop-up lug assemblies (63) with pop-up lugs (92) selectively reciprocated from lowered positions to raised positions extended above the conveyor chains (61, 62) for varying the pitch. Each conveyor chain (61, 62) includes plural modular table-top lugs (65) which are yieldably urged into position on an endless chain (84).

Machine à emballer (5) pour déplacer des groupes de récipients espacés le long d'une ligne d'emballage. Ladite machine à emballer (5) comporte un ensemble bande de transport (12) à oreilles et pas variable, doté d'une paire de chaînes transporteuses (61, 62) espacées et une paire de guides latéraux (17) montés sur une paire de rails accessoires (14) montés mobiles sur le bâti (7) de la machine à emballer, le long des côtés opposés de la ligne d'emballage. Les chaînes transporteuses (61, 62) sont mobiles dans le sens latéral. Les guides latéraux (17) et les rails accessoires (14) se déplacent latéralement simultanément lorsque les chaînes transporteuses (61, 62) sont déplacées. Chaque chaîne transporteuse (61, 62) comporte des ensembles (63) à oreilles escamotables (92) qui sont déplacées sélectivement entre des positions abaissées et des positions relevées au-dessus des chaînes transporteuses (61, 62) pour faire varier le pas. Chaque chaîne transporteuse (61, 62) comporte plusieurs oreilles de table modulaires (65) qui sont mises en position de manière élastique sur une chaîne sans fin (84).
