Title
(EN) CART FOR DIE TRANSPORTATION
(FR) CHARIOT DE TRANSPORT DE MATRICES
Abstract
(EN)
There is provided a cart (10) for transporting dies (12) , molds, and similar objects. The cart includes a lift mechanism (18) for raising and lowering a support surface (20) to the height of the surface onto which or from which the die will be moved. The support surface includes a transfer mechanism (30) for coupling to the die, either with an electromagnet (44) or a suction device (244) , to thereby slide the die as desired without damaging critical components on the exterior of the die. The cart also includes a motorized drive wheel assembly (26) , which provides a drive force in a forward or backward direction to assist the operator in moving a die that has been transferred onto the cart. The cart is powered by one or more rechargeable batteries (28) . The cart enables a single operator to safely and conveniently remove, insert, and transport dies or other similar objects.
(FR)
L'invention concerne un chariot de transport de matrices, de moules ou d'objets similaires. Le chariot comprend un mécanisme élévateur servant à lever ou baisser une surface de support jusqu'à une hauteur de la surface sur ou de laquelle la matrice sera déplacée. La surface de support comprend un mécanisme de transfert couplé à la matrice à l'aide d'un électro-aimant ou d'un dispositif d'aspiration de façon à glisser la matrice à loisir sans endommager des modules critiques situés à l'extérieur de la matrice. Le chariot comprend également un ensemble motorisé à roue d'entraînement qui applique une force motrice dans les sens avant ou arrière pour aider l'opérateur à déplacer une matrice qui a été transférée sur le chariot. Le chariot est alimenté par un ou plusieurs accumulateurs rechargeables. Le chariot est pris en main par un seul opérateur qui peut, de manière sûre et sans incovénient, retirer, insérer et transporter des matrices ou d'autres objets similaires.
