Title
(EN) ROLLER-BELT SORTER WITH BOOSTER
(FR) TRIEUSE À COURROIE À ROULEAUX AVEC AMPLIFICATEUR
Abstract
(EN) A sorting conveyor system (46) comprising a main conveyor line (48) intersected by cross conveyors (18) having roller-top conveyor belts (20). The roller-top conveyor belts, which can be driven bidirectionally perpendicular to the conveying direction of the main conveyor line, have article-supporting belt rollers (22) that can rotate freely in the main conveying direction (14). Articles (38) fed from the main conveying line onto the cross conveyor can be sorted to the left or the right by the conveyor belt. Articles destined for sorting downstream pass over the stopped roller-top conveyor belt atop the freely rotatable belt rollers and back onto the main conveyor line. A booster (40), such as a motorized roller (40), between the main conveyor line and the cross conveyor applies a force in the main conveying direction against articles destined to cross the cross conveyor.
(FR) L'invention concerne un système de transporteur de tri (46) comprenant une chaîne de transport principale (48) croisée par des transporteurs transversaux (18) ayant des courroies transporteuses à rouleaux supérieurs (20). Les courroies transporteuses à rouleaux supérieurs, qui peuvent être entraînées de manière bidirectionnelle perpendiculairement à la direction de transport de la chaîne de transport principale, ont des rouleaux de courroie de support d'articles (22) qui peuvent tourner librement dans la direction de transport principale (14). Des articles (38) provenant de la chaîne de transport principale sur le transporteur transversal peuvent être triés vers la gauche ou vers la droite par la courroie transporteuse. Des articles destinés à des fins de triage en aval passent sur la courroie transporteuse à rouleaux supérieurs arrêtée au-dessus des rouleaux de courroie librement rotatifs et à nouveau sur la chaîne de transport principale. Un amplificateur (40), tel qu'un rouleau motorisé (40), entre la chaîne de transport principale et le transporteur transversal applique une force dans la direction de transport principale contre des articles destinés à traverser le transporteur transversal.
