Title (EN) METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR ROTATING AN ABSORBENT ARTICLE
(FR) PROCÉDÉ ET APPAREIL DE ROTATION D’UN ARTICLE ABSORBANT.
Abstract:
(EN) An apparatus and method for rotating and transferring a discrete article. The rotation apparatus may include a slot portion defining a longitudinal slot axis. A head assembly may be positioned adjacent to the slot portion. The head assembly may include a transfer member. The transfer member may define a longitudinal transfer axis. A support member extending from the transfer member toward the slot portion may rotate about the longitudinal transfer axis. A first follower and a second follower may be operatively engaged with the support member. The first follower may include a first follower outer surface defining a first longitudinal follower axis and the second follower may include a second follower outer surface defining a second longitudinal follower axis. The first follower and the second follower may be positioned such that the first longitudinal follower axis and the second longitudinal follower axis intersect the longitudinal slot axis.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un appareil et un procédé de rotation et de transfert d’un article discret. L’appareil de rotation peut comprendre une partie de fente définissant un axe de fente longitudinal. Un ensemble de tête peut être positionné de façon adjacente à la partie de fente. L’ensemble de tête peut comprendre un élément de transfert. L'élément de transfert peut définir un axe de transfert longitudinal. Un élément de support s’étendant depuis l’élément de transfert vers la partie de fente peut tourner autour de l’axe de transfert longitudinal. Un premier suiveur et un deuxième suiveur peuvent venir en prise opérationnelle avec l’élément de support. Le premier suiveur peut comprendre une première surface externe de suiveur définissant un premier axe de suiveur longitudinal et le deuxième suiveur peut comprendre une deuxième surface externe de suiveur définissant un deuxième axe de suiveur longitudinal. Le premier suiveur et le deuxième suiveur peuvent être positionnés de sorte que le premier axe de suiveur longitudinal et le deuxième axe de suiveur longitudinal coupe l’axe de fente longitudinal.
