Title
(EN) SORTING MAGAZINE FOR THE SUPPLY OF LOOSE SMALL PARTS
(FR) MAGASIN TRIEUR POUR L'ALIMENTATION DE PETITES PIECES EN VRAC
Abstract
(EN)
The sorting magazine serves for the supply of loose small parts (1) such as rivets, eyes, press fasteners and so forth. It includes a trough-shaped storage container (2) which has a front wall (3) and a magazine base plate (4), with a filling opening (5) for the small parts (1) and, in the base plate (4), an aperture (8) which adjoins an inclined bottom wall (9). The small parts can be guided by way of the aperture into an adjoining rotary magazine comprising a drum-like rotary member (6) which is mounted rotatably about a substantially horizontal axis (7) and which serves for separating and orienting the small parts (1) for further processing thereof by machine. In order conveniently to provide for complete emptying, the magazine base plate (4) has a plate section (12) which is formed with the walls (3, 9) delimiting the storage container (2) to form a unit. That unit is movable from a closed operative position into an open position permitting the removal of all small parts, and vice-versa. It is preferably pivotable.
(FR)
L'invention concerne un magasin trieur, prévu pour l'alimentation de petites pièces (1) en vrac, comme des rivets, des oeillets, des boutons-pression etc. Ce magasin comprend un récipient de stockage (2) en forme d'auge qui présente une paroi avant (3) et une plaque de base (4), avec une ouverture de remplissage (5) pour les petites pièces. En outre, une ouverture(8) est ménagée dans la plaque de base (4) de manière adjacente à une paroi de fond inclinée (9). Les petites pièces peuvent être guidées par l'ouverture pour passer dans un magasin rotatif adjacent comprenant un élément rotatif (6) de type tambour, qui est fixé, en vue de sa rotation, autour d'un axe sensiblement horizontal (7) et qui permet de séparer et d'orienter les petites pièces (1) en vue de leur traitement ultérieur par la machine. Pour pouvoir vider totalement le magasin, la plaque de base (4) comporte une section de plaque (12) qui, avec les parois (3,9) délimite le conteneur de stockage (2) pour former une unité. Cette dernière est mobile et peut passer d'une position opérationnelle fermée à une position ouverte, ce qui permet le retrait de toutes les petites pièces et vice-versa. De préférence, ce dispositif peut pivoter.
