Title (EN) METHOD AND APPARATUS TO FEED AND FORM ORGANIZED GROUPS OF SMOKING ARTICLES
(FR) PROCÉDÉ ET APPAREIL POUR L'APPORT ET LA FORMATION DE GROUPES ORGANISÉS D'ARTICLES À FUMER
Abstract: front page image
(EN) Method to feed and form organized groups (19) of smoking articles (13), providing to feed a plurality of pockets (36) of a transfer conveyor with pockets (34) moved stepwise, thrusting said organized groups (19) of smoking articles (13), by means of thrusters (41) actuated independently from each other, in a direction of transfer (F) and through respective forming drawers (11), into said pockets (36) on the basis of a predefined production rhythm. The method provides, in the event of obstruction, stoppage or blockage of a forming drawer (11), to vary the operating speed of the thrusters (41) associated with the other forming drawers (11) in coordination and in synchrony with the step- wise feed speed of said transfer conveyor with pockets (34), in order to obtain an effective production rhythm equal or near to said predefined production rhythm.
(FR) Procédé d'amenée et de formation de groupes organisés (19) d'articles à fumer (13) qui consiste à amener une pluralité de poches (36) d'un transporteur de transfert à poches (34) déplacées progressivement, en propulsant dans lesdites poches (36) selon un rythme de production prédéfini, lesdits groupes organisés (19) d'articles à fumer (13), au moyen de propulseurs (41) actionnés indépendamment les uns des autres, dans une direction de transfert (F) et à travers des tiroirs de formation respectifs (11). Le procédé permet, en cas d'obstruction, d'arrêter ou de bloquer un tiroir de formation (11), de faire varier la vitesse de fonctionnement des propulseurs (41) associés aux autres tiroirs de formation (11) de manière coordonnées et synchronisée avec la vitesse d'avancement progressive dudit convoyeur de transfert à poches (34), afin d'obtenir un rythme de production efficace égal ou proche dudit rythme de production prédéfini.
