Title
(EN) DIVERTING-FOLDING CONVEYOR SYSTEM
(FR) SYSTÈME DE CONVOYEUR DE DÉTOURNEMENT ET DE PLIAGE
Abstract
(EN)
A folding-diverter assembly (30) is provided to: selectively divert a substrate-product combination (6) advancing from a first direction (Dl) in a predetermined path based upon the substrate-product combination (6) weighing a predetermined weight; advance the substrate-product combination (6) in a second direction (D2), opposite from the first direction (Dl); and fold a flap (4) of the substrate- product combination (6) partially over a top surface of the substrate- product combination (6). A semi-circular conveyor assembly (40) is configured to advance the substrate-product combination (6) in the second direction (D2) at a first portion (40a) of the semi-circular conveyor assembly (40), and along a semi-circular advancing path (40b) such that the substrate-product combination (6) is advanced in the first direction (Dl) at a second portion (40c) of the semi-circular conveyor assembl (40).
(FR)
L'invention concerne un ensemble de pliage et de détournement (30) visant à : détourner de manière sélective une combinaison substrat-produit (6) avançant à partir d'une première direction (Dl) dans un trajet prédéterminé sur la base de la combinaison substrat-produit (6) pesant un poids prédéterminé ; faire avancer la combinaison substrat-produit (6) dans une seconde direction (D2), opposée à la première direction (Dl); et plier un rabat (4) de la combinaison substrat-produit (6) partiellement sur une surface supérieure de la combinaison substrat-produit (6). Un ensemble de convoyeur semi-circulaire (40) est conçu pour faire avancer la combinaison substrat-produit (6) dans la seconde direction (D2) au niveau d'une première partie (40a) de l'ensemble de convoyeur semi-circulaire (40), et le long d'un trajet d'avance semi-circulaire (40b) de telle sorte que la combinaison substrat-produit (6) est avancée dans la première direction (Dl) au niveau d'une seconde partie (40c) de l'ensemble de convoyeur semi-circulaire (40).
