Title: A LOADING MECHANISM FOR CONVEYORS AND USE OF SUCH A LOADING MECHANISM
Abstract:
Certain types of fragile goods, such as certain fruits must be handled very gently, which reduces the capacity of weighing or sorting apparatus. According to the invention the capacity of existing plants may be increased considerably by using two conveyors (8, 9) and by performing a gentle depositing alternatingly on the two conveyors. The gentleness is obtained by a particular geometry (3, 4, 5, 6, 7) for the kinematic movement of intermediary collecting elements (3, 4) between the weighing and sorting apparatus and the conveyors.
