Abstract (en)

[origin: EP0866016A2] To store unwanted empty trays that may occur on a transfer path, as required to facilitate lot changes and to enable the number of trays to be adjusted optimally depending on the yarn count number or the winding speed. In a tray transfer system that supplies bobbins to an automatic winder composed of a plurality of winding units installed in parallel, a tray storage apparatus 15 for stacking a plurality of empty trays for storage is located in the middle of an empty tray transfer path 19 in a bobbin processing section 12. When the lack of an installed bobbin in a bobbin installation apparatus 16 is detected, the tray storage apparatus 15 is activated to store all trays for a particular yarn type, these trays being transferred along the empty tray transfer path 19. <IMAGE>
