(FR) CONVOYEURS
Abstract
(EN)
An indexing conveyor 1 travels at (90) degrees to a wrapping output conveyor (2), which conveys elongate packs (3) of circular biscuits at high speed with their diameter-ends leading. The indexing conveyor 1 receives the packs (3) and conveys them in an orthogonal direction, with their long-dimensions leading. The indexing conveyor (1) has a regular series of V-section lugs (11), which receive and centre the packs (3) and can accommodate a range of diameters of circular packs (3) whilst maintaining a constant pitch. A pair of lifting bars (12) lifts a group (31) of packs (3) at a time during the dwell period of the index of the (10) conveyor (1). The packs (3) of each group (31) are moved together during the lift so that they are touching, to ensure that a robotic pick-and-place system can pick up the group (31) reliably.

Un convoyeur pas à pas (1) se déplace à 90 degrés par rapport à un convoyeur de sortie (2) assurant le transport de paquets allongés (3) de biscuits circulaires à une vitesse élevée dans le sens de la longueur. Le convoyeur pas à pas (1) reçoit les paquets (3) et assure leur transport dans un sens perpendiculaire, soit dans le sens de la largeur. Ce convoyeur pas à pas (1) comprend une série régulière de supports en V (11) assurant la réception et le centrage des paquets (3) et pouvant recevoir différents diamètres de paquets circulaires (3) avec un écartement constant. Une paire de barres de levage (12) permet de lever un groupe (31) de paquets (3) pendant la période inactive du système pas à pas du convoyeur (1). Les paquets (3) de chaque groupe (31) sont déplacés ensemble pendant le levage de façon à rester en contact, un système de transfert robotisé pouvant ainsi ramasser le groupe (31) de manière sûre.
