Title (EN) A DEVICE FOR HOLDING AND CARRYING OBJECTS
(FR) DISPOSITIF PERMETTANT DE PORTER ET TRANSPORTER DES OBJETS
Abstract:
(EN) A device for holding and carrying plane objects (P) in a machine (10) comprising a treatment station (13) in which the objects (P) are treated, and a conveyor (15) for transporting the objects through the machine (10), said device comprising carriers (16) for carrying the objects and a holding member (18) for each carrier (16) for holding an object at an edge portion, the object being suspended in the holding member. According to the invention the holding member includes at least one clamp (24) having two cooperating shanks (25, 26) which are movable toward and away from each other, each shank having a clamping element (29, 33). The clamping elements define a gap therebetween which can be opened for receiving the object. At least one of the clamping elements has at least one edge-like ridge (29A, 33A), the crest of which facing the other clamping element.
(FR) L'invention concerne un dispositif permettant de porter et transporter des objets plats (P) dans une machine (10) comportant au moins une station de traitement (13) dans laquelle les objets (P) sont traités, et un convoyeur (15) permettant de transporter des objets à travers la machine (10). Ce dispositif comprend des supports (16) permettant de porter les objets. Chaque support (16) est doté d'un élément de retenue (18) permettant de tenir un objet par son bord, l'objet étant suspendu dans cet élément de retenue. Selon l'invention, l'élément de retenue comporte au moins une pince (24) dotée de deux branches (25, 26) mobiles, c'est-à-dire pouvant se rapprocher et s'éloigner l'une de l'autre. Chaque branche comprend un élément de serrage (29, 33). Les éléments de serrage définissent entre eux un espace qui peut être ouvert pour recevoir un objet. Au moins un des éléments de serrage présente au moins une crête (29A, 33A) en forme de bord, dont le sommet fait face à l'autre élément de serrage.
