Title: SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR ORDERING ELEMENTS, SPECIFICALLY FOR PACKAGING
Abstract:
The invention describes a system for ordering elements comprising at least one a source of elements (1) comprising randomly arranged elements (ERij; i=line number; j=element position in line); a plurality of source output lines (S1,S2,S3,S4), associated to the at least one source (1); a synchronising station (2) comprising a plurality of synchronising channels (CH1,CH2,CH3,CH4) in which each source line of the plurality (S1,S2,S3,S4) is associable to one or more of the synchronising channels (CH1,CH2,CH3,CH4); in which at least the synchronising channels (CH1,CH2,CH3,CH4) comprise a plurality of synchronised transport means (Mij) configured to support and move first groupable elements EU1ij, wherein said synchronised transport means (Mij) comprises corresponding reciprocally independent motorising means (MMij); a processing unit (3) configured for starting up and timing the functions of one or more from among at least the source of elements (1), the plurality of source output lines (S1,S2,S3,S4) and the synchronising station (2), in which the processing unit (UE) comprises a synchronising module (37) configured for sending, independently, to each motorising means (MMij), one from among a setting signal (Sn1) of a predefined velocity (V) or a stop signal (Sn3). The invention further comprises a method for ordering elements that describes the functions of the corresponding system.
