Title (EN) BEVERAGE DISPENSING MACHINE COMPRISING A PIVOTING POD CONTAINER EQUIPPED WITH AN OPENING ASSIST SYSTEM
(FR) MACHINE DE DISTRIBUTION DE BOISSONS AVEC UN RECEPTACLE DE POD PIVOTANT MUNIE D'UN SYSTEME D'ASSISTANCE A L'OUVERTURE
Abstract:
(EN) The invention relates to a machine (1) for dispensing beverages from a pod (4), said machine comprising a frame (2) and a container (3) including a pod-receiving zone (33). In addition, an opening/closing device is provided between the frame and the container so as to pivot the container relative to a first vertical axis between a closed dispensing position and an open position providing access to the container. The opening/closing device comprises an opening assist system including a bearing member mounted such that it can slide along a second vertical axis, said assist system comprising a plate secured to the container on the first vertical axis. The plate comprises at least one ramp on which the bearing member bears, such that the force exerted by the bearing member on the at least one ramp causes the plate to rotate in at least one direction relative to the first vertical axis. This design facilitates the opening of the container, without the container having to be handled.
(FR) L'invention concerne une machine (1) de distribution de boissons à partir d'un pod (4), comprenant un châssis (2) et un réceptacle (3) comportant une zone de réception (33) du pod, et un dispositif d'ouverture/fermeture agencé entre le châssis et le réceptacle pour pivoter le réceptacle selon un premier axe vertical, entre une position fermée permettant la distribution et une position ouverte permettant l'accès audit réceptacle. Le dispositif d'ouverture/fermeture comprend un système d'assistance à l'ouverture comportant un organe d'appui monté en liaison glissière selon un second axe vertical, ledit système d'assistance comprenant une platine assujettie au réceptacle selon le premier axe vertical. La platine comprenant au moins une rampe sur laquelle prend appui l'organe d'appui, de sorte que l'effort exercé par l'organe d'appui sur l'au moins une rampe entraîne la rotation de la platine dans au moins un sens selon le premier axe vertical. Cette conception facilite l'ouverture du réceptacle sans manipulation de celui-ci.
