Title
(EN) SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR FIX PITCH PARCEL DISTRIBUTION
(FR) SYSTÈME ET PROCÉDÉ DE DISTRIBUTION DE COLIS SELON UN PAS FIXE
Abstract
(EN)
A system (500) for distributing a stream of articles (100) at a fix pitch (P) includes a belt assembly (250) with belt segments (252) carrying a stream of articles (100), a sensor assembly (510) with sensors (512), a control system (550) interfacing with the belt assembly (250) and the sensor assembly (510), wherein the sensor assembly (510) provides measurements of initial positions of each article of the stream of articles (100) and transmits the measurements to the control system (550), wherein the control system (550) utilizes the measurements to determine deficits of the initial positions to final positions for each article based on a predefined pitch value (P), and wherein the control system (550) controls a speed of the plurality of belt segments (252) to provide the final positions for each article according to the predefined pitch value (P).
(FR)
L'invention concerne un système (500) de distribution d'un flux d'articles (100) selon un pas fixe (P) qui comprend un ensemble courroie (250) comportant des segments de courroie (252) portant un flux d'articles (100), un ensemble capteur (510) comportant des capteurs (512), un système de commande (550) relié à l'ensemble courroie (250) et à l'ensemble capteur (510), l'ensemble capteur (510) fournissant des mesures relatives à la position initiale de chaque article du flux d'articles (100) et transmettant les mesures au système de commande (550), le système de commande (550) utilisant les mesures pour déterminer un écart entre la position initiale et la position finale pour chaque article sur la base d'une valeur de pas prédéfinie (P), et le système de commande (550) régulant la vitesse de la pluralité de segments de courroie (252) pour que la position finale de chaque article soit conforme à la valeur de pas prédéfinie (P).
