Title (EN) CONVEYOR HAVING AN ARTICLE-CONVEYING SURFACE WITH ARTICLE-ENGAGEMENT CHARACTERISTICS THAT CAN BE CHANGED WHILE THE CONVEYOR IS RUNNING
(FR) MODIFICATION DES CARACTERISTIQUES D'UNE SURFACE DE COURROIE DE CONVOYEUR D'ARTICLES SUR UN CONVOYEUR EN MOUVEMENT
Abstract:
(EN) A belt conveyor (10) whose article-conveying characteristics can be changed as the belt (12) is running. The conveyor belt (12) includes a plurality of movable assemblies (42) supporting an article-supporting element (44) and an adjustable element (54). The adjustable element (54) coacts with an adjustment control element (46) supported in the conveyor frame (11) as the belt (12) is running. The coaction causes the adjustable element (54) to move the article-supporting element (44) to provide a different article-conveying characteristic to articles (38) supported at the conveying surface (34) of the belt (12) in zones defined by the adjustment control elements (46).
(FR) La présente invention concerne une courroie de convoyeur dont les caractéristiques de convoyage d'article peuvent être changées lorsque cette courroie est en mouvement. Cette courroie de convoyeur comprend une pluralité d'ensembles mobiles supportant un élément porteur d'articles et un élément réglable. Cet élément réglable agit de concert avec un élément de commande de réglage supporté dans le châssis du convoyeur, la courroie étant en mouvement. Par cette action de concert l'élément réglable entraîne le déplacement de l'élément porteur d'articles de façon à présenter des caractéristiques de convoyage d'article différentes aux articles portés sur la surface de convoyage de la courroie dans des zones définies par les éléments de commande de réglage.
