Title
(EN) METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR POSITIONING GLASS SHEETS FOR FORMING
(FR) PROCÉDÉ ET APPAREIL DE POSITIONNEMENT DE FEUILLES DE VERRE POUR FAÇONNAGE
Abstract
(EN) A method and apparatus (54) for positioning glass sheets for forming includes positioners (55) that are moved slower than the speed of glass sheet conveyance to provide rotational adjustment of a glass sheet into alignment above a forming mold (52). The forming mold (52) is moved upwardly for the forming in a pressing manner against a downwardly facing upper mold (58). Both preformed and flat glass sheets can be positioned by different embodiments of the apparatus.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un procédé et un appareil (54) destinés à positionner des feuilles de verre pour façonnage comprenant des organes de positionnement (55) qui se déplacent plus lentement que la vitesse d'acheminement de feuille de verre pour produire un réglage rotatif d'une feuille de verre en alignement au-dessus d'un moule de façonnage (52). Le moule de façonnage (52) est déplacé vers le haut en vue du façonnage par pression contre un moule supérieur (58) tourné vers le bas. Les feuilles de verre à la fois plates et préformées peuvent être positionnées par différents modes de réalisation de l'appareil.
