Title
(EN) APPARATUS AND METHOD FOR FLIPPING AND POSITIONING ARTICLES
(FR) APPAREIL ET PROCÉDÉ DE RETOURNEMENT ET DE POSITIONNEMENT D'ARTICLES
Abstract
(EN)
The present invention provides an article inverting and displacing apparatus and a machine for making sandwiches comprising the apparatus, wherein the apparatus comprises an engagement member (12) adapted to engage a lateral edge portion of a sandwich element; a drive unit (14) configured to drive the engagement member (12) to lift and turn the sandwich element engaged thereby about is opposite lateral edge to invert it; and a control unit configured to control the drive unit (14); wherein the control unit is configured to control the drive unit (14) to drive the engagement member (12) so that the opposite lateral edge of the sandwich element is caused to be raised to approximately at or above the level or height of the engaged lateral edge portion during the inverting step, and, optionally subsequently the sandwich element is caused to lie in a generally horizontal plane. The present invention also provides a process of automatically inverting and displacing articles.
(FR)
La présente invention concerne un appareil d'inversion et de déplacement d'article et une machine de préparation de sandwichs comprenant l'appareil, l'appareil comprenant un élément de mise en prise (12) conçu pour mettre en prise une partie bord latéral d'un élément sandwich ; une unité d'entraînement (14) conçue pour entraîner l'élément de mise en prise (12) pour soulever et faire tourner l'élément sandwich en prise avec celui-ci autour de son bord latéral opposé pour l'inverser ; et une unité de commande conçue pour commander l'unité d'entraînement (14) ; l'unité de commande étant conçue pour commander l'unité d'entraînement (14) pour entraîner l'élément de mise en prise (12) de telle sorte que le bord latéral opposé de l'élément sandwich est amené à être élevé à peu près ou au-dessus du niveau ou de la hauteur de la partie bord latéral en prise pendant l'étape d'inversion, et, éventuellement ultérieurement, l'élément sandwich est amené à se trouver dans un plan généralement horizontal. La présente invention concerne également un processus d'inversion et de déplacement automatiques d'articles.
