Title
(EN) APPARATUS AND METHODS FOR DYNAMICALLY CONTROLLING THE SPACING OF CONVEYED OBJECTS
(FR) APPAREIL ET PROCÉDÉS DE COMMANDE DYNAMIQUE DE L'ESPACEMENT D'OBJETS TRANSPORTÉS
Abstract
(EN) A conveying system (100) employs independently controlled flights (160). The flights are controlled separately from a conveying surface using a linear transport system. The linear transport system allow the position of the flights to be controlled based on a parameter, such as the length of a conveyed object. The flights are pivotally mounted to a mover of the linear transport system and can pivot relative to the conveying surface to allow the flights to fit in a space between an end of carryway and a receptacle.
(FR) L'invention concerne un système de transport utilisant des raclettes commandées indépendamment. Les raclettes sont commandées séparément à partir d'une surface de transport à l'aide d'un système de transport linéaire. Le système de transport linéaire permet de commander la position des raclettes sur la base d'un paramètre, tel que la longueur d'un objet transporté. Les raclettes sont montées pivotantes sur un dispositif de déplacement du système de transport linéaire et peuvent pivoter par rapport à la surface de transport de sorte à permettre aux raclettes de s'adapter dans un espace entre une extrémité de voie de transport et un contenant.
