Title (EN) CONVEYOR SYSTEM FOR CONVEYING AND ACCUMULATING OBJECTS
(FR) SYSTEME DE TRANSPORTEUR DESTINE A TRANSPORTER ET A ACCUMULER DES OBJETS
Abstract:
(EN) The invention relates to a conveyor system for conveying objects along a conveyor path, which is suitable in particular for conveying the objects along an inclined conveyor path and for accumulating the objects. The system comprises a modular, plastic, endless conveyor belt (1) comprising plastic modules (2, 3) which are linked to one another by means of a connecting pin (8), accumulation elements for allowing conveyed objects to accumulate being provided in at least some of the modules (2, 3), together with drive means for driving the conveyor belt. According to the invention, the accumulation elements are driver members (13) which can be lowered beneath the surface of the carrying section of the conveyor belt (1) and have a support surface (16) for retaining the objects, which driver members (13) can be displaced between a driving position, which lies above the surface of the carrying section of the conveyor belt, and an accumulation position, which lies beneath the surface of the carrying section of the conveyor belt, and the conveyor system furthermore comprises a guidance system, which is disposed beneath the path of the driver members (13), for positioning the driver members (13) in the driving position.
(FR) L'invention concerne un système de transporteur destiné à transporter des objets le long d'une trajectoire de transporteur, le système convenant notamment au transport des objets le long d'une trajectoire de transporteur inclinée et à l'accumulation de ces objets. Le système comprend une courroie transporteuse (1) modulaire, plastique, sans fin, comportant des modules en plastique (2, 3) reliés entre eux par une broche de connexion (8), au moins certains des modules (2, 3) comprenant des éléments d'accumulation permettant l'accumulation des objets transportés; ainsi qu'un dispositif d'entraînement de la courroie transporteuse. Dans le système selon l'invention, les éléments d'accumulation sont des éléments d'entraînement (13) pouvant être abaissés au-dessous de la surface de la section de transport de la courroie transporteuse (1) et étant dotés d'une surface de support (16) destinée à retenir les objets. Les éléments d'entraînement (13) peuvent être déplacés entre une position d'entraînement, se trouvant au-dessus de la surface de la section de transport de la courroie transporteuse, et une position d'accumulation se trouvant au-dessous de la surface de la section de transport de la courroie transporteuse. Le système de transport comprend en outre un système de guidage disposé au-dessous de la trajectoire des éléments d'entraînement (13) et permettant de positionner les éléments d'entraînement (13) dans la position d'entraînement.
