Title
(EN) DIVERTING CONVEYOR WITH MAGNETICALLY DRIVEN MOVERS
(FR) CONVOYEUR DE DÉVIATION AVEC DISPOSITIFS D'ENTRAÎNEMENT À ENTRAÎNEMENT MAGNÉTIQUE
Abstract
(EN)
A conveyor and method for moving articles across a conveying surface using electromagnetically operated movers in a conveyor belt. The movers are retained in tracks in the conveyor belt. A magnetic field source produces a magnetic field that varies across the width of the belt. The magnetic field interacts with electrically conductive material, ferromagnetic material, or permanent magnets in the movers to propel the movers and divert articles engaged by the movers across the belt. Movers with retractable pushers fold down at the sides of the belt to allow articles pushed by other movers to pass over and off the side of the belt.
(FR)
L'invention concerne un convoyeur et un procédé pour déplacer des articles sur une surface de transport en utilisant des dispositifs d'entraînement à commande électromagnétique dans une bande transporteuse. Les dispositifs d'entraînement sont retenus dans des rails dans la bande transporteuse. Une source de champ magnétique produit un champ magnétique qui varie en travers de la largeur de la bande. Le champ magnétique interagit avec un matériau électriquement conducteur, un matériau ferromagnétique, ou des aimants permanents dans les dispositifs d'entraînement afin de propulser les dispositifs d'entraînement et de dévier des articles mis en prise par les dispositifs d'entraînement en travers de la bande. Des dispositifs d'entraînement avec des pousseurs rétractables se replient au niveau des côtés de la bande pour permettre aux articles poussés par d'autres dispositifs d'entraînement de passer par-dessus le côté de la bande et de tomber de celle-ci.
