Abstract:
(EN) An apparatus (100) for dispensing lids (2) has at least one magazine lane (4) including an entrance end (6), an exit end (8), and a longitudinal length defined therebetween. The at least one magazine lane (4) further includes a plurality of side guides (14) along the longitudinal length for guiding the lids (2) therebetween and a pair of rollers (12a, 12b) for carrying the lids (2) thereon. The apparatus further has a throat plate (16) at or near the exit end (8), the throat plate (16) including an opening (18). At least one of the throat plate (16), the side guides (14), or the rollers (12a, 12b) is adaptable so as to accommodate different sizes and/or shapes of lids (2).

Ledit couloir de réserve (4) comprend en outre une pluralité de guides latéraux (14) le long de la longueur longitudinale pour guider les couvercles (2) entre ces derniers et une paire de rouleaux (12a, 12b) pour transporter les couvercles (2) sur ces derniers. L'appareil comporte en outre une plaque de rétrécissement (16) au niveau de l'extrémité sortie (8), ou à proximité de cette dernière, la plaque de rétrécissement (16) comprenant une ouverture (18). La plaque de rétrécissement (16), et/ou les guides latéraux (14), et/ou les rouleaux (12a, 12b) sont adaptables de façon à recevoir différentes tailles et/ou formes de couvercles (2).
