Title: SYSTEM FOR TRANSFERRING A GROUP OF COMPONENTS OF ELECTRONIC CIGARETTES FROM A FIRST OPERATING STATION TO A SECOND OPERATING STATION
Abstract:
Described is a system (1) for transferring a first group (G1) of components (C) of electronic cigarettes from a first operating station to a second operating station, comprising: a flat collecting surface (3) extending from a feeding zone (31) to a releasing zone (32); a feeding device (2) that receives the components (C) to be transferred and feeds them onto the flat collecting surface (3). The system comprises: a first abutment element (41) disposed to abut the first component (C1) of the first group (G1) of components (C) released onto the flat collecting surface (3); a second abutment element (42) disposed to abut the last component (C2) of the first group (G1) of components (C) released onto the flat collecting surface (3); compacting and stabilizing means (5, 50) for moving the components (C) fed into the feeding zone (31) closer together and stabilizing their positions; first movement means (4) for moving the first abutment element (41) and the second abutment element (42) along the flat collecting surface (3) to transfer the first group (G1) of components (C) to the releasing zone (32); a tray (6) facing the releasing zone (32) to receive the first group (G1) of components (C); pushing means (7) which push the components (C) from the releasing zone (32) into the tray (6); transferring means (8) for transferring the tray (6) filled at least with a first group (G1) of components (C) towards the second operating station.
