Title: MAGNET CONVEYOR
Abstract:
[PROBLEMS] A magnet conveyor in which a belt that is made of a soft material and a chain to which magnets are attached are rotated at the same speed, wherein a difference between the speed of the belt and the speed of the chain does not occur and an object is reliably and smoothly conveyed. [MEANS FOR SOLVING PROBLEMS] The magnet conveyor has an endless belt rotating with an object placed on its surface, a pair of magnet rotating sprockets placed at positions that are on the inner sides of the endless belt and are at the start point and end point in the direction of conveyance of the object, a pair of magnet rotating chains wrapped around the magnet rotating sprockets and placed on the inner sides of lateral opposite ends of the belt, and magnets placed to straddle between the pair of magnet rotating chains and arranged intermittently in the longitudinal direction of the magnet rotating chains. Belt rotating chains as a pair are attached to and along the lateral opposite ends, respectively, of the endless belt. The Belt rotating chains are each wrapped around belt rotating sprockets arranged near each of the pair of magnet rotating sprockets and are moved at the same speed and in the same direction as the pair of magnet rotating chains.
