  • Patent number: 5170857
    Abstract: A dynamic check weighing system wherein the drive motor is positioned within the channel members of the frame and spaced from the ends thereof so as to provide a dynamically balanced system resulting in accurate and consistent weighing. The conveyor belt is of an open mesh type which affords positive engagement by a drive sprocket and positive tracking by a guide sprocket. A direct drive arrangement is employed thus eliminating drive components. There is provided a weighing system which employs fewer parts, thus, reducing maintenance and production costs.

  • Patent number: 5168978
    Abstract: A conveyor system having transverse positions for use in conjunction with diverting or sorting and detecting operations. The conveyor system employs elastic strand members which are driven by a drive roller connected to a supporting frame in a transversely fixed manner while the strands are moved transversely by a guide roller positioned at an opposite end of the supporting frame. The conveyor system is especially adaptable to dynamic weighing and counting systems. The conveyor system affords a rapid adjustment for different transverse positions employing a positioning mechanism which is activated by two fluid and preferably pneumatically driven cylinders with activating rods.
