Title: DEVICE AND METHOD FOR MOVING CONVEYING ELEMENTS IN A CONTAINER TREATMENT PLANT
Abstract:
The invention relates to a method for adapting method profiles of a plurality of individually controllable conveyor elements for conveying containers along a conveying path in a container treatment plant. The plurality of conveyor elements are arranged such that they can be moved along the conveyor path. Said method comprises the following steps: a treatment state of at least one container carried along by a first conveying element is determined and/or an operational state of at least one first container treatment unit which is arranged downstream along the conveyor path with respect to a position of the first conveyor element is determined. The first conveyor element is moved by means of a control unit and/or regulating unit of the container treatment unit as part of a flow on conveyor elements, and the method profile of the first conveyor element is adapted by means of said control and/or regulating unit in accordance with the determined treatment state and/or with the determined operational state.
