Title (EN) CONVEYOR SYSTEM AND METHOD OF CONVEYING ELEMENTS
(FR) SYSTÈME TRANSPORTEUR ET PROCÉDÉ DE TRANSPORT D’ÉLÉMENTS
Abstract:
(EN) The method of conveying elements on a conveyor system of this invention includes conveying an element on a first continuously moving conveyor (10) in a first direction at a first height, then lifting the element from the first conveyor upwardly to a second height and simultaneously moving the element in the first direction, reducing damage to the conveyor and the element. The element may be returned to the first conveyor by lowering the element and simultaneously accelerating the element to generally the velocity of the first conveyor or transferred to a second conveyor (30) at the second height. The conveyor system of this invention includes spaced parallel plastic moving belts (22) and the elements are conveyed on a pallet (50) having a soft metal base. The lift tables (26, 28) include parallelogram lift and lowering linkages.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un procédé de transport d’éléments sur un système transporteur consistant à transporter un élément sur un premier transporteur se déplaçant en continu dans une première direction à une première hauteur, puis à soulever l’élément depuis le premier transporteur vers le haut à une seconde hauteur et à déplacer simultanément l’élément dans une première direction, ce réduit les dommages au transporteur et à l’élément. L’élément peut être renvoyé vers le premier transporteur en abaissant l’élément et en accélérant de façon simultanée l’élément généralement à la vitesse du premier transporteur ou en le transférant vers un second transporteur à la seconde hauteur. Le système transporteur de cette invention comprend des courroies de déplacement en plastique parallèles espacées et les éléments sont transportés sur une palette ayant une base métallique souple. Les plateformes élévatrices comprennent des liens articulés de levée et d’abaissement de type parallélogramme.
