Title
(EN) COMPACT DUNNAGE CONVERTER
(FR) CONVERTISSEUR DE FARDAGE COMPACT
Abstract
(EN)
A compact dunnage conversion machine (20) includes a converging chute (74) with a restricted inlet (120), a powered feed assembly (76) with a sealed gearbox (160), a plurality of interchangeable power supplies (200,202), and a restricted outlet chute (100). The converter can convert a sheet stock material into dunnage for use in packaging one or more objects in a container. The restricted inlet and outlet make it more difficult for foreign objects to enter the converter and disrupt the conversion process. The sealed gearbox interposed between the driving elements of the feed assembly and an electric motor facilitates maintenance and repair of the feed assembly, while also protecting the gears therein. Finally, the power supplies provide electrical power to the motor and can include an electrical storage device, such as a battery (212), or an alternating-current-to-direct-current converter (214) which is connectable to a source of electricity for supplying that electricity to the motor in an acceptable form.

L'invention concerne une machine compacte de conversion de fardage comprenant une goulotte convergente munie d'une entrée rétrécie, un ensemble d'alimentation assistée muni d'une boîte de transmission étanche, une pluralité d'alimentations interchangeables de puissance et une goulotte de sortie rétrécie. Le convertisseur est capable de convertir un matériau de charge en feuilles en fardage destiné à être utilisé pour emballer un ou plusieurs objets dans un récipient. L'entrée et la sortie rétrécies font qu'il est plus difficile pour des corps étrangers de pénétrer dans le convertisseur et de perturber le processus de conversion. La boîte de transmission étanche interposée entre les éléments d'entraînement de l'ensemble d'alimentation et un moteur électrique facilite la maintenance et la réparation de l'ensemble d'alimentation, tout en protégeant également les engrenages qui s'y trouvent. Enfin, les alimentations de puissance fournissent l'énergie électrique au moteur et peuvent comprendre un dispositif de stockage électrique, tel qu'une batterie ou un convertisseur courant alternatif-courant continu susceptible d'être relié à une source d'électricité afin de fournir ladite électricité au moteur sous une forme admissible.
