Title
(EN) ARTICLE TRANSPORT VEHICLE
(FR) VÉHICULE DE TRANSPORT D'ARTICLES
Abstract
(EN)
An article transport vehicle (200) has: a carrier base (202) configured for movement along a guideway and a pair of gripping arms (216), each gripping arm (216) having a first end (216a) connected to the carrier base (202) and a second end (216b) protruding from the carrier base (202). The pair of gripping arms (216) is movable between a closed position configured for holding an article (302) and an open position configured for releasing the article (302). The article transport vehicle (200) further has a closure mechanism (238) for moving the pair of gripping arms (216) between the closed position and the open position. The closure mechanism (238) is configured for biasing the pair of gripping arms (216) to the closed position and moving the pair of gripping arms (216) to the open position when the carrier base (202) is positioned at a predetermined portion of the guideway.
(FR)
L'invention concerne un véhicule de transport d'articles (200) comprenant : une base de support (202) conçue pour se déplacer le long d'une voie de guidage et une paire de bras de préhension (216), chaque bras de préhension (216) ayant une première extrémité (216a) reliée à la base de support (202) et une seconde extrémité (216b) faisant saillie à partir de la base de support (202). La paire de bras de préhension (216) est mobile entre une position fermée conçue pour maintenir un article (302) et une position ouverte conçue pour libérer l'article (302). Le véhicule de transport d'articles (200) comprend en outre un mécanisme de fermeture (238) pour déplacer la paire de bras de préhension (216) entre la position fermée et la position ouverte. Le mécanisme de fermeture (238) est conçu pour solliciter la paire de bras de préhension (216) vers la position fermée et déplacer la paire de bras de préhension (216) vers la position ouverte lorsque la base de support (202) est positionnée au niveau d'une partie prédéfinie de la voie de guidage.
