Title: METHOD AND KIT FOR ADJUSTING A MACHINE FOR WRAPPING OR PACKING ARTICLES
Abstract:
This invention relates to a method and a kit for adjusting a machine for wrapping or packing articles, the machine comprising at least one conveyor or roller operatively associated with an electric motor where, in a machine operating condition, the electric motor is adapted to drive the conveyor or roller in rotation about its axis of rotation. The method comprises the steps of associating the conveyor or roller (R) with a reference (32) integral with the conveyor or roller (R) itself and disposed at a certain angular position about its axis of rotation; detecting the angular position (γ) of the conveyor or roller (R) relative to the force of gravity (G) by measuring the angle between a radial straight line (31) passing through the reference (32) and the force of gravity (G); detecting the angular position (α) of the axis of the electric motor relative to a zero reference associated with an angular position transducer of the electric motor itself; calculating and storing the angular displacement (δ) between the angular position (α) of the electric motor and the angular position (γ) of the conveyor or roller (R) corresponding to the angular displacement between the zero reference and the force of gravity (G).
