Title (EN) METHOD AND SYSTEM FOR AUTOMATED STACKING AND LOADING WRAPPED FACEMASKS INTO A CARTON IN A MANUFACTURING LINE
(FR) PROCÉDÉ ET SYSTÈME D'EMPILAGE ET DE CHARGEMENT AUTOMATISÉS DE MASQUES FACIAUX ENVELOPPÉS DANS UNE BOÎTE EN CARTON DANS UNE CHAÎNE DE FABRICATION
Abstract:
(EN) An automated method (100) and system for stacking and loading wrapped facemasks (132) into a carton (152) in a facemask production line (102) include conveying individual wrapped facemasks (134) to a delivery location (148) adjacent to a rotary wheel (144), the rotary wheel conveyor (144) having individual pick-up devices (146) spaced around a circumference thereof. Each wrapped facemask (134) is picked-up with a respective pick-up device (146) on the rotary wheel conveyor (144) and transported to a first carton staging area (150) at a first location on the circumference of the rotary wheel (144). At the first staging area (150), the facemasks (134) are released from the rotary wheel conveyor (144) and deposited into a carton (152).
(FR) L'invention concerne un procédé automatisé (100) et un système permettant d'empiler et de charger des masques faciaux (132) enveloppés à l'intérieur d'une boîte en carton (152) dans une chaîne de production (102) de masque facial, consistant à transporter des masques faciaux (134) enveloppés à un emplacement de distribution (148) adjacent à une roue rotative (144), le convoyeur à roue rotative (144) présentant des dispositifs de préhension (146) individuels espacés autour d'une circonférence de celui-ci. Chaque masque facial (134) enveloppé est prélevé au moyen d'un dispositif de préhension (146) respectif sur le convoyeur à roue rotative (144) et transporté jusqu'à une première zone de mise en forme de carton (150) à un premier emplacement sur la circonférence de la roue rotative (144). Au niveau de la première zone de mise en forme (150), les masques faciaux (134) sont libérés du convoyeur à roue rotative (144) et déposés dans une boîte en carton (152).
