Title (EN) AUTONOMOUS CONVEYOR SYSTEM
(FR) SYSTÈME DE TRANSPORTEUR AUTONOME
Abstract:
(EN) The present disclosure provides a conveyor system, comprising a plurality of work piece carriers (WPC), each presenting a machine readable and writable tag (T) and being adapted for supporting at least one work piece during transportation. The system further comprises distribution highway conveyors (DHC1, DHC2) each in the form of an endless conveyor adapted for transporting and circulating said work piece carriers (WPC), flow balancing conveyors (FBC) and operation unit conveyors (OUC1, OUC2, OUC3, OUC4). Control of the system is achieved by autonomous switch control devices (11a, 11b, 11c, 11d; 13a, 13b) arranged at each intersection between conveyors to control the flow of the work piece carriers (WPC) at the respective intersection.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un système de transporteur, lequel système comprend une pluralité de porteurs de pièce à travailler (WPC), présentant chacun une étiquette pouvant être lue et écrite par une machine (T) et étant aptes à porter au moins une pièce à travailler pendant le transport. Le système comprend en outre des transporteur de chemin principal de distribution (DHC1, DHC2) chacun sous la forme d'un transporteur sans fin apte à transporter et à faire circuler lesdits porteurs de pièce à travailler (WPC), des transporteurs d'équilibrage de flux (FBC) et des transporteurs d'unité fonctionnelle (OUC1, OUC2, OUC3, OUC4). La commande du système est réalisée par des dispositifs de commande de commutation autonomes (11a, 11b, 11c, 11d; 13a, 13b) disposés à chaque intersection entre les transporteurs afin de commander le flux des porteurs de pièce à travailler (WPC) à l'intersection respective.
