Title
(EN) DEVICE FOR FEEDING AND ARRANGING SOLID FOOD PRODUCTS.
(FR) DISPOSITIF D'ALIMENTATION ET DE RANGEMENT DE PRODUITS ALIMENTAIRES SOLIDES
Abstract
(EN) Described is a device (1) for feeding and arranging solid food products comprising: a motor-driven conveyor (2) for accumulating and conveying the products (1); a unit (3) for controlled transit of the products (1) arriving from the conveyor (2); the transit unit (3) defines a transit path along a direction (A) for feeding the products (1) from a first infeed end to a second outlet or releasing end for the products (1); the means (4) for spacing products (1) positioned close to and downstream of the outlet or releasing end of the transit unit (3); the transit unit (3) comprises a stationary panel (6) extending at least between the first, infeed end and the second end for outlet or releasing the products (1) from the transit unit (3), and parallel to the feed direction (A); a first (7) and a second (8) pulling belt comprising a first (7a) and a second (8a) active branch positioned parallel facing each other and at the opposite sides of the panel (6), forming with the latter a respective first 3a and a second 3b transit channel for a respective row of products (1, 1'), each first (7a) and second (8a) active branch pulls the respective row of products (1, 1') in a sliding fashion against the panel (6); each first (7) and second (8) belt has an autonomous independent drive unit (9, 10); a control unit (11) connected to the independent drive units (9, 10) able to modify the respective feed speeds of the first (7) and second (8) belt, so as to allow the controlled feed of the respective row of products (1, 1') transiting in the first (3a) and second (3b) channel.
(FR) L'invention porte sur un dispositif (1) pour l'alimentation et le rangement de produits alimentaires solides comprenant: un transporteur entraîné par moteur (2) pour accumuler et transporter les produits (1); une unité (3) pour le transit contrôlé des produits (1) arrivant du transporteur (2); l'unité de transit (3) définit un chemin de transit le long d'une direction (A) pour alimenter les produits (1) d'une première extrémité d'alimentation à une seconde extrémité de sortie ou de libération pour les produits (1); les moyens (4) pour espacer les produits (1) étant positionnés à proximité et en aval de l'extrémité de sortie ou de libération de l'unité de transit (3); l'unité de transit (3) comprend un panneau fixe (6) s'étendant au moins entre la première extrémité d'alimentation et la seconde extrémité de sortie ou de libération des produits (1) de l'unité de transit (3), et parallèle à la direction d'alimentation (A); une première (7) et une seconde (8) bande de traction comprenant une première (7a) et une seconde (8a) branche active positionnées parallèlement l'une en face de l'autre et au niveau des côtés opposés du panneau (6), formant avec ce dernier un premier (3a) et un second (3b) canal de transit respectif pour une rangée respective de produits (1, 1'), chaque première (7a) et seconde (8a) branche active tire la rangée respective de produits (1, 1') d'une manière coulissante contre le panneau (6); chaque première (7) et seconde (8) bande comprend une unité d'entraînement autonome indépendante (9, 10); une unité de commande (11) reliée aux unités d'entraînement indépendantes (9, 10) apte à modifier les vitesses d'alimentation respectives de la première (7) et la seconde (8) bande, de manière à permettre l'alimentation contrôlée de la rangée respective de produits (1, 1') transitant dans le premier (3a) et le second (3b) canal.
