Title (EN) APPARATUS AND METHOD FOR LIFTING ITEMS
(FR) APPAREIL ET PROCÉDÉ DE LEVAGE D'ARTICLES
Abstract:
(EN) Apparatus (101 ) for lifting items comprises a tube (102) configured to be connected to a vacuum source (150). The tube (102) has a first end part (103) and a second end part (104) configured to be moveable towards the first end part (103) in dependence upon pressure within the tube (102). The apparatus (101 ) also includes at least one flexible member (105) having a first end (106) connected to the second end part (104) of the tube (102) and a second end (107) for connecting to a coupling device (108) for coupling the flexible member to an item. A guide means (109) is arranged to support the at least one flexible member (105) so that the at least one flexible member (105) extends around the guide means (109) and extends along a first line to one side of the guide means (109) and along a second line to the other side of the guide means (109). The apparatus (101 ) has a support structure (110) for supporting the tube (102) above a surface and a slide mechanism (111 ) on which the tube is mounted. The slide mechanism (111 ) is configured to enable the tube (102) to slide with respect to the support structure (110) so that the first end part (103) and second end part (104) of the tube (102) are moveable with respect to the support structure (110).
(FR) L'invention concerne un appareil (101) pour lever des articles, qui comprend un tube (102) conçu pour être relié à une source de vide (150). Le tube (102) comporte une première partie d'extrémité (103) et une seconde partie d'extrémité (104) conçue pour être mobile vers la première partie d'extrémité (103) en fonction d'une pression dans le tube (102). L'appareil (101) comprend également au moins un élément souple (105) comportant une première extrémité (106) reliée à la seconde partie d'extrémité (104) du tube (102) et une seconde extrémité (107) pour se raccorder à un dispositif d'accouplement (108) afin d'accoupler l'élément souple à un article. Un moyen de guidage (109) est conçu pour supporter ledit élément souple (105) de telle sorte que ledit élément souple (105) s'étende autour du moyen de guidage (109) et s'étende le long d'une première ligne vers un côté du moyen de guidage (109) et le long d'une seconde ligne vers l'autre côté du moyen de guidage (109). L'appareil (101) présente une structure de support (110) pour supporter le tube (102) au-dessus d'une surface et un mécanisme de coulissement (111) sur lequel le tube est monté. Le mécanisme de coulissement (111) est conçu pour permettre au tube (102) de coulisser par rapport à la structure de support (110) de telle sorte que la première partie d'extrémité (103) et la seconde partie d'extrémité (104) du tube (102) sont mobiles par rapport à la structure de support (110).
