Title (EN) DIVERT CHUTES IN SORTING CONVEYOR SYSTEMS
(FR) GOULOTTES DE DÉVIATION DANS DES SYSTÈMES DE TRANSPORTEUR DE TRI
Abstract:
(EN) A divert chute and a sorting conveyor system having divert chutes that include an array of high-friction rollers in a landing zone to resist the cross-chute momentum of parcels diverted off the sorting conveyor at high speeds. The rollers, which protrude above a flat slide region of the chute, rotate only in a direction down the chute. Parcels sliding axially along the high-friction rollers across the chute are slowed or stopped in the cross-chute direction while being redirected down the chute.
(FR) L'invention concerne une goulotte de déviation et un système de transporteur de tri ayant des goulottes de déviation qui comprennent un réseau de rouleaux à frottement élevé dans une zone d'atterrissage pour résister à l'élan en travers de la goulotte de colis déviés hors du transporteur de tri à des vitesses élevées. Les rouleaux, qui font saillie au-dessus d'une région de coulissement plate de la goulotte, tournent uniquement dans une direction vers le bas de la goulotte. Les colis coulissant axialement le long des rouleaux à frottement élevé à travers la goulotte sont ralentis ou arrêtés dans la direction en travers de la goulotte tout en étant redirigés vers le bas de la goulotte.
