Title (EN) CHIP SIZE CONTROL SYSTEM FOR LOG CHIPPING MACHINE
(FR) SYSTÈME DE RÉGLAGE DE TAILLE DE COPEAU POUR MACHINE DE MISE EN COPEAUX DE BILLES
Abstract:
(EN) A log chipping machine includes a frame having a long axis and a rotating chipping mechanism having an axis of rotation that is oblique to the long axis of the frame of the machine. The machine also includes a log advance system that is adapted to advance a log to the chipping mechanism, in a processing direction that is generally parallel to the long axis of the frame. The log advance system includes an upper feed assembly. A control system includes a lifting assembly and a controller assembly. The lifting assembly is adapted to move the upper feed assembly with respect to the frame between an engagement position in which the upper feed assembly contacts the log to advance it towards the chipping mechanism and a raised position in which the upper feed assembly is above and out of contact with the log. The controller assembly is operatively connected to the lifting assembly and adapted to cause the lifting assembly to move the upper feed assembly from the engagement position to the raised position intermittently in order to orient the log axis in a generally parallel relationship with the long axis of the frame as the log is being reduced.
(FR) L'invention concerne une machine de mise en copeaux de billes comprenant un cadre ayant un axe longitudinal et un mécanisme de mise en copeaux rotatif ayant un axe de rotation oblique par rapport à l'axe longitudinal du cadre de la machine. La machine comporte également un système d'avance de billes conçu pour faire avancer une bille vers le mécanisme de mise en copeaux, dans une direction de traitement généralement parallèle à l'axe longitudinal du cadre. Le système d'avance de billes comporte un ensemble d'alimentation supérieur. Un système de réglage comporte un ensemble de levage et un ensemble de commande. L'ensemble de levage est conçu pour déplacer l'ensemble d'alimentation supérieur par rapport au cadre entre une position d'entrée en contact dans laquelle l'ensemble d'alimentation supérieur est en contact avec la bille afin de la faire avancer vers le mécanisme de mise en copeaux et une position surélevée dans laquelle l'ensemble d'alimentation supérieur est au-dessus et hors de contact avec la bille. L'ensemble de commande est relié fonctionnellement à l'ensemble de levage et conçu pour amener l'ensemble de levage à déplacer l'ensemble d'alimentation supérieur de la position d'entrée en contact à la position surélevée par intermittence afin d'orienter l'axe de la bille dans une relation généralement parallèle à l'axe longitudinal du cadre pendant la réduction de la bille en copeaux.
