Abstract (en)

[origin: EP0668027A2] The container (2) comprises two box stations with box exchange. After box transfer from a container to the top box station, the container is lowered to the plane of the lower box station and re-supplied with cigarette boxes. The empty container lowering takes place directly from an end position, reached by an intermittent or cyclic horizontal feed. To the lowering motion may be linked an intermittent, horizontal, resetting stroke movement of the container for the cigarette box reception. The forward and rearward stroke motions may take place during the box transfer w.r.t. two vertically aligned transfer positions.
