Title
(EN) MODULAR CONVEYING SYSTEMS AND METHODS
(FR) SYSTÈMES ET PROCÉDÉS DE TRANSPORT MODULAIRES
Abstract
(EN)
Various modular conveyors, conveying systems, conveyor modules, and methods are disclosed. In some embodiments, the conveyor comprises a module body and an upper member. The module body can be configured to receive one or more rolling elements. In some embodiments, the rolling elements protrude through openings in the module body and the upper member. In various embodiments, the rolling elements can be configured to engage a surface below the module body and/or an item on the conveyor, thereby facilitating multi-directional travel of the item.

L'invention porte sur différents transporteurs modulaires, sur différents systèmes de transport, sur différents modules de transporteur et sur différents procédés. Dans certains modes de réalisation, le transporteur comprend un corps de module et un élément supérieur. Le corps de module peut être configuré de façon à recevoir un ou plusieurs éléments de roulement. Dans certains modes de réalisation, les éléments de roulement font saillie à travers des ouvertures dans le corps de module et l'élément supérieur. Dans différents modes de réalisation, les éléments de roulement peuvent être configurés de façon à venir en prise avec une surface en dessous du corps de module et/ou un article sur le transporteur, de façon à faciliter ainsi un déplacement multidirectionnel de l'article.
