Title: DEVICE COMPRISING A NUMBER OF SUPERPOSED BUCKET CONVEYORS FOR SORTING FLAT OBJECTS
Abstract:
The device for sorting flat objects (6) comprises at least one first conveyor (2) consisting of buckets (2A) moving along a first path in a closed loop and a second conveyor (3), mechanically independent of the first conveyor, consisting of buckets (3A) moving along a second path in a closed loop superposed with the first path in a vertical direction. Each conveyor serves its own sorting outlets (2B, 3B). The movement of the buckets (2A) of the first conveyor along the first path and the movement of the buckets (3A) of the second conveyor along the second path are synchronized by an electric shaft and there is a zone (5) along the two paths where the flat objects in the buckets of the second conveyor are transferred under gravity into the buckets of the first conveyor.
