Title (EN) CONVEYOR TRANSFER ASSEMBLY
(FR) ENSEMBLE DE TRANSFERT DE TRANSPORTEUR
Abstract:
(EN) A conveyor system with a pop-up transfer assembly for transferring articles off the end of conveyor belt having protrusions extending above the belt's outer conveying surface. The transfer assembly is cantilevered over the reversing path of the conveyor belt from a pivot. When a protrusion from the belt hits the transfer assembly, the transfer assembly pivots away from the belt about the pivot. When the protrusion is clear, the transfer assembly drops, by gravity, back to its home position proximate the belt. A bilateral transfer assembly is cantilevered in opposite directions to transfer articles off the end of one conveyor belt onto another conveyor belt that may or may not have protrusions. The transfer assembly can have powered driving surfaces to aid the transfer of articles.
(FR) L'invention concerne un système de transporteur qui comprend un ensemble de transfert à soulèvement automatique permettant de transférer des articles depuis l'extrémité d'une bande transporteuse qui présente des saillies s'étendant au-dessus de la surface de transport extérieure de la bande. L'ensemble de transfert est en porte-à-faux sur le trajet inverse de la bande transporteuse à partir d'un pivot. Lorsqu'une saillie de la bande heurte l'ensemble de transfert, cet ensemble de transfert pivote à distance de ladite bande autour du pivot. Lorsque la saillie est dégagée, l'ensemble de transfert tombe, sous l'effet de la gravité, pour revenir à sa position initiale à proximité de la bande. Un ensemble de transfert bilatéral est en porte-à-faux dans des directions opposées pour transférer des articles depuis l'extrémité d'une bande transporteuse sur une autre bande transporteuse qui peut ou non présenter des saillies. L'ensemble de transfert peut posséder des surfaces d'entraînement électriques pour faciliter le transfert des articles.
