[ EN ]
Claims :

1. A system for handling lamellae arranged generally vertically in a parallel array, the systems comprising first supporting means for first parts of the lower edges of the lamellae, a pair of second supporting means for second and third parts of the lower edges of the lamellae lying outwardly from the said first parts, and means for moving the first supporting means vertically relative to the second supporting means to transfer the lamellae from one of the supporting means to the other.

2. A handling system for lamellae comprising:
a) an accumulator comprising a pair of continuous conveyors arranged side by side and with a gap between them, the conveyors having aligned pairs of conveyor holders to hold spaced outer parts of the lower edges of lamellae extending between pairs of holders on the two conveyors,
b) a rack having a width less than the spacing between the conveyors and rack holders spaced to be aligned with the holders on the conveyors to hold inner parts of the lower edges of the lamellae between the said outer parts, and
c) elevating means for changing the relative elevations of the conveyors and the rack from a position in which the rack holders are below lamellae held by the spaced outer parts in the conveyor holders to a position in which the rack holders hold the inner parts of the edges of the lamellae with the outer parts disengaged from the conveyor holders.
3. A handling system for lamellae comprising:

' ~~ ~ * a) an accumulator comprising a continuous conveyor having conveyor holders to hold inner parts of the lower edges of lamellae,
b) a pair of racks spaced apart by a distance greater than the width of the conveyor and having rack holders which are so located that the rack holders on one rack are aligned with those on the other rack and are able to be aligned with the conveyor holders, and
c) elevating means for changing the relative elevations of the conveyor and the racks from a position in which the rack holders are below lamellae held by the said inner parts in the conveyor holders to a position in which the rack holders hold outer parts of the lower edges of the lamellae with the inner parts disengaged from the conveyor holders.

4. A handling system as claimed in claim 2 in which the elevating means comprises a lift positioned between the two conveyors.

5. A handling system as claimed in claim 2 or claim 3 in which the elevating means comprises a wheeled truck having a projecting lift insertable between the conveyors.

6. A handling system as claimed in any of claims 2 to 5 in which the conveyor holders are of U-shaped cross-section.

7. A handling system as claimed in any of claims 2 to 6 in which the rack holders consist of slots formed in the (or each) rack.

8. An accumulator for lamellae comprising a pair of continuous conveyors providing a pair of parallel spaced horizontal runs, the conveyors having aligned pairs of conveyor holders to hold pairs of first parts of the lower edges of lamellae extending between pairs of holders on the two conveyors with second parts of the lower edges of the lamellae downwardly exposed.
