  • Patent number: 10384875
    Abstract: An injection molded plastic chain module comprising a substantially elongate conveying body and a hinge structure located at a bottom side of the module for hingedly connecting a front and a rear side of the module with adjacent modules. The conveying body comprises two wing shaped portions extending laterally away from the hinge structure, and comprising a respective top plate portion that defines a part of a supporting surface for supporting products to be transported, wherein each of said top plate portions has a thickness of less than ? of the total thickness of the respective wing shaped portion. Further, each wing shaped portion comprises one or more downwardly extending supporting wall portions for supporting the respective top plate portion. The module may merely consist of a plurality of relatively thin plate and/or wall portions, preferably all having a substantially equal thickness.

  • Patent number: 10221020
    Abstract: A transfer device (19), comprising a carrier (21) including a number of mutually spaced-apart, substantially parallel extending transfer fingers (22) that in use reach into grooves (14) between ribs (13) on a conveying surface of a grooved conveyor belt (2). Back parts (23) of the fingers form a comb shaped part (24) of a substantially planar slide-over surface (25) of the transfer device. The carrier further includes a conveyor guide track (26) that is lowered with respect to the slide over surface and that extends transversely to the fingers, and that in use is provided with a cross conveyor belt (6) movable in a conveying direction transversely to the fingers, so that a conveying surface (9) of the cross conveyor belt forms a conveying part (27) of the slide-over surface that is substantially contiguous to and flush with the comb shaped part (24).

  • Patent number: 9388894
    Abstract: A sprocket wheel built up from at least two synthetic wheel parts (2, 3), comprising a hub part (4a, 4b), a gear ring (5) and a body part (6) connecting the hub part and gear ring, having a central plane forming a plane of symmetry of the body part, at least one fastener housing (7) divided over the two wheel parts, having a fastener hole (8) extending along a centerline situated in the central plane, for receiving a fastener (9), and, at least one gear ring opening (10) extending through the gear ring, situated in line with the fastener hole, characterized in that the body part comprises a recess (11) accessible from a side of the body part to a fastener, which recess is situated in line between the gear ring opening and the fastener housing and whose passage towards the fastener housing is greater than the passage of the gear ring opening (10).

  • Patent number: 9199797
    Abstract: The invention relates to a module for a modular conveyor, comprising a body part extending transversely to a direction, having a substantially closed, flat top surface and a bottom. On the top surface, a receiving provision is provided for coupling a mounting frame. The receiving provision is provided with one or more stop elements projecting relative to the top surface, with each stop element provided with a flange. The mounting frame is provided with one or more wings, with each wing configured to engage under a respective flange upon placement of the mounting frame on the receiving provision. The receiving provision and the mounting frame are configured for placement of the mounting frame on the module and removal from the module, respectively, in an insertion direction which is directed substantially transversely to the directions.
