Document Type and Number:
WIPO Patent Application WO/2011/018674
Kind Code:
A3
Abstract:
The feeder and positioner for trays for food products (209) according to the invention comprises A) at least one conveyor guide (227); B) at least one conveyor chain (211) which for a section further upstream is substantially side- by-side with the at least one conveyor guide, and is designed to engage with a plurality of trays (V) and to make them advance along the at least one conveyor guide (227). At a moving pulley (213) the conveyor chain (211) is substantially diverted from the path of the at least one conveyor guide (227) so as to disengage from the trays (V). The feeder and positioner (209) comprises a slide (223) on which the pulley (213) is mounted. By moving repeatedly, the slide (213) moves the point in which the trays (V) disengage from the chain (211) and deposits a plurality of N trays in a row on the guide (227). The N trays can be picked up simultaneously from the guide (227).
