Title (EN) SYSTEM FOR TRANSFERRING A GROUP OF COMPONENTS OF ELECTRONIC CIGARETTES FROM A FIRST OPERATING STATION TO A SECOND OPERATING STATION
(FR) SYSTÈME DE TRANSFERT D'UN GROUPE DE COMPOSANTS DE CIGARETTES ÉLECTRONIQUES D'UNE PREMIÈRE STATION D'EXPLOITATION À UNE SECONDE STATION D'EXPLOITATION
Abstract:
(EN) The invention relates to a system (1 ) for transferring a group (G) of components (C) of electronic cigarettes from a first operating station to a second operating station. The system (1) comprises: a conveyor (3), extending from a feeding zone (31) to a disengagement zone (32) and having a plurality of seats (30); and a feeding device (2) which receives the components (C) and feeds them into the seats (30) of the conveyor (3) at a first mutual distance (D1). The system (1) also comprises disengaging and transferring means (4, 40), that operate in the disengagement zone (32) to simultaneously disengage all the components (C) of the group (G) from their seats (30) and to transfer the components (C) to a collecting zone (50); compacting means (5), operating in the collecting zone (50) to move the components (C) closer together and place them at a second mutual distance (D2) that is smaller than the first mutual distance (D1); a tray (6) facing the collecting zone (50) for receiving from the collecting zone (50) the group (G) of components (C) which have been placed close together; pushing means (7) which push the components (C) from the collecting zone (50) into the tray (6). The system (1) also comprises movement means (8) for transferring the tray (6) to the second operating station.
(FR) L'invention concerne un système (1) permettant de transférer un groupe (G) de composants (C) de cigarettes électroniques d'une première station d'exploitation à une seconde station d'exploitation. Le système (1) comprend: un transporteur (3), s'étendant d'une zone d'alimentation (31) vers une zone de désengagement (32) et ayant une pluralité de logements (30); et un dispositif d'alimentation (2) qui reçoit les composants (C) et les amène dans les logements (30) du transporteur (3) à une première distance mutuelle (D1). Le système (1) comprend également des moyens de désengagement et de transfert (4, 40) qui fonctionnent dans la zone de désengagement (32) pour désengager simultanément tous les composants (C) du groupe (G) à partir de leurs logements (30) et pour transférer les composants (C) vers une zone de collecte (50); des moyens de compactage (5), fonctionnant dans la zone de collecte (50) pour rapprocher les composants (C) et les placer à une seconde distance mutuelle (D2) qui est inférieure à la première distance mutuelle (D1); un plateau (6) faisant face à la zone de collecte (50) pour recevoir de la zone de collecte (50) le groupe (G) de composants (C) qui ont été rapprochés; des moyens de poussée (7) qui poussent les composants (C) depuis la zone de collecte (50) dans le plateau (6). Le système (1) comprend également des moyens de déplacement (8) pour transférer le plateau (6) à la seconde station d'exploitation.
