Title: APPARATUS AND CASSETTE FOR SUPPLYING A MATERIAL TO BE FORMED TO A PLANT FOR PRODUCING SLABS
Abstract:
The invention relates to an apparatus 10 for supplying a material to be formed 8 to a plant for producing slabs 88. The apparatus comprises means 12 for supplying the material to be formed, first collecting and moving means 14, a conveyor cassette 16 and second collecting and moving means 18. The means for supplying the material to be formed take the material to be formed 8 from reservoirs 28 and deposit it on the first collecting and moving means to form a semi-finished mat 80. The first collecting and moving means provide a stable base for the material to be formed and move the semi-finished mat towards the conveyor cassette. The conveyor cassette receives the semi-finished mat and deposits a uniform pad 82 on the second collecting and moving means. The second collecting and moving means provide a stable base for the uniform pad and move it towards successive stations in the plant. The walls of the conveyor cassette, which, in use, are intended to support, at least in part, the weight of the material to be formed, comprise active surfaces 164. According to the invention, the conveyor cassette has, as a whole, an angled shape, comprising a first rectilinear portion and a curved one.
