Title (EN) CARTON FEEDING MECHANISM
(FR) MECANISME DE CHARGEMENT DE CARTONS
Abstract:
(EN) An apparatus for continuously feeding and conveying cartons to an article loading station in a packaging machine (50) which apparatus comprises selectively operable feed means (46, 47) in which first feed means (46) is adapted sequentially to deliver cartons from a first supply (54) and second feed means (47) is adapted sequentially to deliver cartons from a second supply (140) and locating means (48) co-operating with said first and second feed means to maintain the cartons in a set location relative to conveyor means (102, 104) by which conveyor means said cartons are moved downstream to said loading station to be loaded by lowering each of said cartons onto at least one article to be packaged.
(FR) L'invention concerne un appareil permettant d'alimenter et d'acheminer en continu des cartons vers un poste de chargement d'articles d'une machine de conditionnement (50). Ledit appareil comprend des dispositifs d'alimentation (46, 47) à fonctionnement sélectif, le premier dispositif d'alimentation (46) étant conçu pour acheminer séquentiellement les cartons d'un premier magasin (54) et le second dispositif d'alimentation (47) étant conçu pour acheminer les cartons d'un second magasin (140), des éléments de positionnement (48) coopérant avec le premier et le second dispositif d'alimentation pour maintenir les cartons à un emplacement déterminé par rapport aux organes transporteurs (102, 104). Ces organes transporteurs font progresser les cartons vers l'aval, en direction du poste de chargement, où les cartons sont chargés en abaissant chacun d'entre eux sur au moins un article à emballer.
