Title
(EN) IMPROVED APPARATUS FOR AUTOMATICALLY PALLETIZING CONTAINERS AND RESPECTIVE METHOD
(FR) APPAREIL AMÉLIORÉ DESTINÉ À PALETTISER AUTOMATIQUEMENT DES RÉCIPIENTS ET PROCÉDÉ RESPECTIF
Abstract
(EN)
The object of the present invention is to improve the efficiency of an apparatus for palletizing which serves a plurality of conveyors transporting respective successions of cases, realising a storage means on the unloading area of each conveyor, so that during the period of storage of the cases coming from the same conveyor, the palletizer is transferred in correspondence of another conveyor wherein the respective storage has already been completed, so as to use a sole palletizer for a plurality of distinct conveyors. This apparatus for palletizing a plurality of cases comprises a conveyor with an unloading area, an open structure composed of a plurality of support planes basically identical and arranged vertically one on top of the other, and separated by respective hollow spaces, first pushers which displace the cases from said unloading area of said mobile conveyor, towards and into a respective one of said hollow spaces, a transferring plate in a position adjacent to said open structure, displacement means, in particular second pushers apt at transferring said cases contained in respective one of said hollow spaces from it towards and on a palletizing means.

La présente invention a pour objet d'améliorer l'efficacité d'un appareil de palettisation qui dessert une pluralité de convoyeurs transportant des séries respectives de caisses, réalisant un moyen de stockage sur la zone de déchargement de chaque convoyeur de telle sorte que, pendant la période de stockage des caisses provenant du même convoyeur, le palettiseur soit transféré en correspondance avec un autre convoyeur pour lequel le stockage respectif a déjà été achevé de sorte à utiliser un seul palettiseur pour une pluralité de convoyeurs distincts. Cet appareil permettant de palettiser une pluralité de boîtes comprend un convoyeur ayant une zone de déchargement, une structure ouverte composée d'une pluralité de plans de support essentiellement identiques et agencés verticalement les unes au-dessus des autres, et séparés par des espaces creux respectifs, des premiers poussoirs qui déplacent les caisses de ladite zone de déchargement dudit convoyeur mobile, vers et dans un espace creux respectif desdits espaces creux, une plaque de transfert dans une position adjacente à ladite structure ouverte, des moyens de déplacement, en particulier des seconds poussoirs appropriés pour transférer lesdites caisses contenues dans un espace creux respectif desdits espaces creux à partir de celui-ci vers un moyen de palettisation et sur ce dernier.
