Title:
ARTICLE STORAGE DEVICE FOR VENDING MACHINE
Document Type and Number:
Japanese Patent JP2007102318
Kind Code:
A
Abstract:

To provide an article storage device that improves heat insulation performance than before and improves the ease of withdrawal and insertion of the article storage device.

Curved stackers 2 are set horizontally between a left-right pair of side plates 1 raised to define article passages, in order to define vertical serpentine article passages. The side plates 1 include through holes 4 through which passing portions 3 projecting from the stackers 2 are passed to pivot the stackers 2. Each through hole 4 is made at the center of a seat bottom 7 plastically worked inward of the side plate 1 to leave a seat shape 6. A passing portion tip 5 of each passing portion 3 of the stacker 2, which is most distant from the article passage, is positioned within a side plate outer surface 10 of the side plate 1, which is an outer surface of the article passage. The article storage device installed in a vending machine chamber can thus minimize space for avoiding contact with adjacent article storage devices or members such as chamber sidewalls to allow correspondingly thick chamber sidewalls having heat insulation performance in the same existing vending machine width.
