Title
(EN) A PIECE TURNING APPARATUS FOR SELECTIVELY TURNING ELONGATED PIECES OF LUMBER CARRIED IN SEQUENCE BY A CONVEYOR
(FR) APPAREIL DE ROTATION DE PIECES POUR LA ROTATION SELECTIVE DE PIECES DE BOIS ALLONGEES SUPPORTEES EN SEQUENCE PAR UN CONVOYEUR
Abstract
(EN)
A system for selectively turning elongated pieces comprising a conveyor transversally receiving and carrying in a sequence the elongated pieces along a transfer course. A piece turning apparatus is mounted next to the conveyor and has a number of turning hands in which an end of one of the elongated pieces is engageable so that rotation of the turning hand effects a turning of the one of the elongated pieces about a longitudinal axis thereof when the end of the one of the elongated pieces is engaged in the turning hand. Carriages are distributively mounted onto the endless driving body and supporting respectively the turning hands so that each one of the turning hands successively moves into an engaging position with an end of one of the elongated pieces as the one of the elongated pieces is carried by the conveyor. A cam body drives the turning hands in rotation.
(FR)
Système permettant la rotation sélective de pièces allongées, qui comporte un convoyeur recevant transversalement les pièces allongées et portant lesdites pièces en séquence sur une course de transfert. Un appareil de rotation de pièce est monté à proximité du convoyeur et possède un certain nombre de mains de rotation dans lesquelles une extrémité de pièce allongée peut être introduite, si bien que la rotation de la main de rotation entraîne la rotation de la pièce allongée autour d'un axe longitudinal de ladite pièce lorsque l'extrémité de la pièce allongée est introduite dans la main. Des chariots sont montés de manière répartie sur le corps à entraînement continu et supportent respectivement les mains de rotation si bien que chacune des mains de rotation se déplace successivement dans une position d'emboîtement avec une extrémité de l'une des pièces allongées lorsque ladite pièce allongée est portée par le convoyeur. Un corps de came entraîne les mains en rotation.
