Title (EN) GROUPING AND/OR PACKING MACHINE
(FR) MACHINE DE GROUPAGE ET/OU D'EMBALLAGE
Abstract:
(EN) The invention relates to a grouping and/or packing machine for packing articles, preferably thin articles extending substantially in one plane, comprising: a stacking device with a plurality of fingers mounted on a conveyor belt; as least one feed station for feeding at least one article between successive fingers at at least a first location; and a gathering station for removing a group of successive articles in the stacking device at a second location and for gathering this removed group at at least one gathering location. The gathering station comprises a first and/or a second removing and pushing unit extending on a first and/or second side of the stacking device and configured to push the removed group of successive articles in a direction away from the conveyor belt and toward the at least one gathering location, while the conveyor belt rotates continuously.
(FR) L'invention concerne une machine de groupage et/ou d'emballage permettant d’emballer des articles, de préférence des articles minces s'étendant sensiblement dans un plan, comprenant : un dispositif d'empilement doté d’une pluralité de doigts montée sur une bande transporteuse ; au moins un poste d'alimentation permettant d’alimenter au moins un article entre des doigts successifs au niveau d'au moins un premier emplacement ; et un poste de rassemblement permettant de retirer un groupe d'articles successifs dans le dispositif d'empilement au niveau d’un second emplacement et de rassembler ce groupe retiré au niveau d'au moins un emplacement de rassemblement. Le poste de rassemblement comprend une première unité de retrait et de poussée et/ou une seconde unité de retrait et de poussée s'étendant sur un premier côté et/ou un second côté du dispositif d'empilement et conçues pour pousser le groupe retiré d'articles successifs dans une direction s'éloignant de la bande transporteuse et vers ledit emplacement de rassemblement, en même temps que la bande transporteuse tourne en continu.
