Title (EN) FEEDER MECHANISM AND HOPPER FOR COLLAPSED CARTON BLANKS
(FR) MECANISME ET TREMIE D'ALIMENTATION POUR DECOUPES DE CARTONS PLATS
Abstract:
(EN) An apparatus (42) for sequentially manipulating from a supply point of a hopper (54) collapsed cartons (10) having oppositely disposed face contacting panels and for transferring to the cartons to an infeed end of a packaging machine (50), which apparatus comprising a shaft (58) which rotates about a fixed axis (X-X) and carton pick up means for sequentially engaging one of said face contacting panels and for withdrawing from the hopper a collapsed carton, characterised in that the hopper is inclined downwardly towards the carton supply point and in that the shaft is mounted about the fixed axis in a position such that the carton pick up means transfers a carton from an inclined plane in the hopper to a substantially vertical plane at the infeed end.
(FR) L'invention concerne un appareil (42) permettant de manipuler séquentiellement, à partir d'un point d'alimentation de trémie (54), des cartons pliés (10) constitués de panneaux de contact opposés, et de transférer ces cartons vers l'extrémité d'alimentation d'une machine de conditionnement (50). Ledit appareil comprend un arbre (58) tournant autour d'un axe fixe (X-X) et un dispositif de saisie des cartons destiné à venir séquentiellement au contact d'un de ces panneaux de contact et à retirer de la trémie un carton plié. L'invention est caractérisée en ce que la trémie est inclinée vers le bas en direction du point d'alimentation en cartons, et en ce que l'arbre est monté autour de l'axe fixe dans une position telle que le dispositif de saisie des cartons fasse passer un carton d'un plan incliné dans la trémie à un plan sensiblement vertical au niveau de l'extrémité d'alimentation.
