Title:
METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR MECHANIZED LOADING AND UNLOADING
Document Type and Number:
WIPO Patent Application WO/1993/010028
Kind Code:
A1
Abstract:
An insertable pallet for unloading or acquiring objects or for loading or piling objects, particularly in a stacked position, comprising at least one live roller (101) for moving an object being unloaded or loaded along the insertable pallet (100). In the unloading mode of the insertable pallet, the insertable pallet (100) is thrust at an object seam until the insertable pallet is underneath the object being unloaded a sufficient distance to engage at least one live roller of said insertable pallet for moving the object from its initial position along said pallet. In the loading mode of the insertable pallet, an object being loaded is moved to and preferably partially over the front of the insertable pallet by at least one live roller. The insertable pallet is appropriately positioned so that when the object arrives at the front of the insertable pallet an operator can nudge the object of the insertable pallet with a minimum of physical effort.
