Abstract
(EN) In one embodiment, a conveyor system (100) includes a conveyor belt (12) having a plurality of conveyor belt rollers (118), configured to divert objects on the conveyor belt (12), and a drive mechanism (104) being configured to drive the conveyor belt rollers (118), the drive mechanism (104) being adjustable such that the conveyor belt rollers (118) can be selectively driven in a first angular direction and a second opposite angular direction so that objects can be selectively diverted to either side of the conveyor belt at a desired diverting angle.
(FR) Dans un mode de réalisation de l'invention, un système transporteur comprend une courroie transporteuse ayant une pluralité de rouleaux de courroie transporteuse configurés pour dévier des objets sur une courroie transporteuse, et un mécanisme d'entraînement qui entre en contact avec les rouleaux de courroie transporteuse, le mécanisme d'entraînement étant configuré pour entraîner les rouleaux de courroie transporteuse, le mécanisme d'entraînement étant ajustable de manière à ce que les rouleaux de courroie transporteuse puissent être entraînés de manière sélective dans une première direction angulaire et dans une deuxième direction angulaire opposée afin que les objets puissent être déviés de manière sélective vers l'un ou l'autre côté de la courroie transporteuse selon un angle de déviation souhaité.
