Title: TRANSPORT DEVICE FOR TRANSPORTING OBJECTS FROM WORK STATION TO WORK STATION OF A PRODUCTION SYSTEM AND PRODUCTION SYSTEM FOR THE MANUFACTURING OF PRODUCTS WITH A TRANSPORT DEVICE OF THIS TYPE
Abstract:
The invention relates to a transport device for transporting objects from work station to work station of a production system. The invention also relates to a production system for manufacturing products, in particular containers filled with a medical product. The transport device according to the invention is provided with a stationary assembly (2), an object carrier (3) that can rotate about an axis of rotation (4) in consecutive work cycles, a plurality of object carrier elements (6) which are distributed around the perimeter, which can be moved relative to the object carrier on a circular path (8), and to which coupling elements (14) are assigned, which can each adopt only a first switch position or a second switch position. In the first switch position, the coupling element (14) is engaged with the stationary assembly (2) and not engaged with the rotational object carrier (3), such that the object carrier element associated with the coupling element remains at a work station, while in the second switch position, the coupling element (14) is not engaged with the stationary assembly (2) and is engaged with the rotational object carrier (3), such that the object carrier element associated with the coupling element is moved from work station to work station.
