Abstract

Conveyor belt 1 has attached to it one or several stacker hooks 2. Stacker hook 2 forces one or several record carriers 3 against conveyor belt 1. As the belt moves in the direction of arrow 4 (Fig. 1), the stacker hook 2, thus closed, takes along record carrier 3. When stacker hook 2 reaches the radial portion of conveyor belt 1, which is determined by transport roller 5, it begins to open as a result of its shape, releasing record carrier 3 (Fig. 2). When stacker hook 2 during its travel reaches a straight path section, it is again automatically forced against the belt in its closed position.

Operation-Controlled Stacker Hook

Conveyor belt 1 has attached to it one or several stacker hooks 2. Stacker hook 2 forces one or several record carriers 3 against conveyor belt 1. As the belt moves in the direction of arrow 4 (Fig. 1), the stacker hook 2, thus closed, takes along record carrier 3. When stacker hook 2 reaches the radial portion of conveyor belt 1, which is determined by transport roller 5, it begins to open as a result of its shape, releasing record carrier 3 (Fig. 2). When stacker hook 2 during its travel reaches a straight path section, it is again automatically forced against the belt in its closed position.

The function of stacker hook 2 is independent of the direction of revolution of conveyor belt 1.
