Title (EN) DISPENSING MECHANISM
(FR) MÉCANISME DE DISTRIBUTION
Abstract:
(EN) The present invention relates to a cup dispensing mechanism, and to a carousel-type cup dispenser incorporating such a mechanism. The cup dispensing mechanism is suitable for dispensing cups from a nested cup stack and comprises a ring and a splitting mechanism for splitting off an individual cup from the base of the stack, wherein the ring is rotatable from a first position to a second position to drive the splitting mechanism and at least initiate the splitting of a cup from the base of the stack, and is characterised in that the dispensing mechanism further comprises a means for preventing free rotation of the ring from the first position in the direction of the second position.
(FR) La présente invention porte sur un mécanisme de distribution de gobelets et sur un distributeur de gobelets du type carrousel incorporant un tel mécanisme. Le mécanisme de distribution de gobelets est approprié pour distribuer des gobelets à partir d'une pile de gobelets emboîtés et comprend un anneau et un mécanisme de séparation permettant de séparer un gobelet individuel de la base de la pile, l'anneau pouvant tourner d'une première position à une seconde position de manière à entraîner le mécanisme de séparation et au moins commencer la séparation d'un gobelet de la base de la pile, et est caractérisé en ce que le mécanisme de distribution comprend en outre un moyen permettant d'empêcher une libre rotation de l'anneau à partir de la première position en direction de la seconde position.
