Title
(EN) VISCOUS MATERIAL METERING SYSTEM AND METHOD
(FR) SYSTÈME ET PROCÉDÉ DE DOSAGE D'UN MATÉRIAU VISQUEUX
Abstract
(EN)
A viscous material metering system (10) comprises a cutting apparatus (2S) comprising a tensioning fork (212) having a main body diverging into extending tines (214); a cutting wire (82) tensioned between the tines of the fork; and a driving mechanism (228) operatively connected to the tensioning fork (212) to drive the fork and tensioned cutting wire (82); and a controller (30) controllably connected to the driving.mechanism (228) and having a set of instructions to control the driving mechanism to drive the fork to cut a continuous viscous materia into portions of a predetermined size or weight for metering to a viscous material compounding system. A viscous material metering method comprises determining a sequential portion of viscous material to be metered from a container (42) to a viscous material compounding system (14); metering portions of the continuous viscous material to the compounding system (14) by cutting the material substantially perpendicular to a longitudinal axis of an elongated continuous viscous material feed (24) expressed from the container (42); and controlling the cutting to meter the determined sequential portion.
(FR)
Le système de dosage de matériau visqueux selon l'invention comprend un appareil de coupe comprenant une fourche de tension dotée d'un corps principal qui diverge pour former des dents extensibles; un fil coupant tendu entre les dents de la fourche; et un mécanisme d'entraînement relié de manière fonctionnelle à la fourche de tension de manière à entraîner la fourche et le fil coupant tendu; ainsi qu'un dispositif de commande relié de manière contrôlable au mécanisme d'entraînement et comprenant un ensemble d'instructions pour commander le mécanisme d'entraînement afin qu'il entraîne la fourche à couper un matériau visqueux continu en portions de taille ou de poids prédéterminé en vue du dosage par un système de mélange de matériau visqueux. Le procédé de dosage de matériau visqueux selon l'invention comprend les étapes consistant à déterminer une portion séquentielle de matériau visqueux à doser d'un contenant à un système de mélange de matériau visqueux; doser des portions de matériau visqueux continu dans le système de mélange en coupant le matériau de manière sensiblement perpendiculaire un axe longitudinal d'un système d'alimentation en matériau visqueux continu allongé extrait du contenant; et à commander la coupe pour doser la portion séquentielle déterminée.
