Title:
TABLEWARE COLLECTION DEVICE
Document Type and Number:
WIPO Patent Application WO/2022/157982
Kind Code:
A1
Abstract:
[Problem] In a conventional tableware collection device, there was a problem in that the area of an opening part in an opened state cannot be decreased when a tableware piece having a projection shape with a low height in a loading direction is loaded. [Solution] A tableware collection device 10 comprises an opening/closing mechanism 100 that is provided to a collection opening and that opens/closes an opening part 12. The opening/closing mechanism 100 has an upper opening/closing part 130 capable of putting an upper portion of the opening part 12 into a closed state, and an opening/closing part 120 capable of putting a lower portion of the opening part 12 into a closed state. The lower opening/closing part 120 is configured so as to be capable of rotating relative to a frame 18 to put the lower portion of the opening part 12 into an opened state while the upper portion is kept in a closed state by the upper opening/closing part 130. Due to this configuration, a tableware piece having a projection shape with a relatively high height in a loading direction can be collected, and the area of the opening part in an opened state can be decreased if a tableware piece having a projection shape with a low height in a loading direction is loaded.
