Title (EN) SMART ICE SYSTEM
(FR) SYSTÈME DE FABRICATION DE GLACE INTELLIGENT
Abstract:
(EN) An ice-tray for ice-making machines is formed by modular fabricated cups that can assembled together within a frame to create an ice-tray of arbitrary dimensions allowing a sharing of components among a variety of ice-tray sizes. Individual cups may include ice formation sensors or heaters or may be heated by an induction heating system.
(FR) L’invention concerne un bac à glaçons pour des machines de fabrication de glace, constitué de coupelles fabriquées de façon modulaire, pouvant être assemblées dans un cadre afin de créer un bac à glaçons de dimensions quelconques, de telle manière que les mêmes constituants peuvent être employés pour la fabrication de bacs à glaçons de diverses tailles. Les coupelles individuelles peuvent comprendre des capteurs de formation de glace ou des dispositifs de chauffage ou peuvent être chauffées par un système de chauffage par induction.
