Title: TRANSPORT DEVICE
Abstract:
The invention relates to a transport device (10) comprising at least one endless conveyor element (12), which has an upper transport region (20) and a lower return region (24), wherein the transport and return regions are arranged between deflector regions (16, 18) in which the endless conveyor element (12) is guided on deflector rollers, wherein the endless conveyor element (12) has at least one carrying strand (14) extending in the longitudinal direction of the endless conveyor element (12), which strand has at least two carrying elements (40, 46a, 46b) running parallel to each other in the longitudinal direction of the endless conveyor element (12), which elements are each guided on a guide profile (32a, 32b) of a supporting guide (22), wherein the distance between the carrying elements (40, 46a, 46b) can be adjusted by way of the spacing between the guide profiles (32a, 32b). The carrying elements (40, 46a, 46b) are connected to each other by means of at least one reversible flexible contact area (48), which contact area (48) exerts a tractive force on the at least two carrying elements (40, 46a, 46b) of the carrying strand (14).
