Title:
FOODSTUFF CONVEYING APPARATUS AND FOODSTUFF CONVEYANCE METHOD
Document Type and Number:
WIPO Patent Application WO/2016/194229
Kind Code:
A1
Abstract:
[Problem] To provide a foodstuff conveying apparatus and a foodstuff conveying method with which it is possible to continuously convey a spiral-shaped foodstuff without using large-scale equipment and without compromising producibility. [Solution] This foodstuff conveying apparatus 100 is provided with a rod support unit 130, a rod movement unit 134, and a rod supply unit 132. The rod support unit 130 supports one end 154 of a first rod 142 such that the first rod is inserted from the other end 152 thereof into a spiral-shaped sausage 140, and holds the first rod on standby on a linear path, the spiral-shaped sausage moving together with a hook group 120 in which the spiral-shaped sausage is sequentially suspended and cyclically moved along a cyclic path that includes the linear path. The rod movement unit 134 clamps both ends of the first rod when the first rod is inserted through the entire spiral-shaped sausage, and causes the first rod to move together with the spiral-shaped sausage and the first rod to be accommodated in a rack 180 when the first rod is de-supported by the rod support unit 134. The rod supply unit 132 accommodates a second rod 182 subsequent to the first rod, and causes the second rod to move in parallel from a position below the rod support unit so that the second rod is supplied to the rod support unit after the first rod has been moved.
