Abstract (en)

A machine includes a buckles receiving station (S1), which is situated on a first elevator (10) and which forms a seat for receiving buckles in an intermittent way and according to predetermined orientation, from a feeding and orientation unit (S0, L). The orientation unit (S0, L) is situated at the side of the buckles receiving station (S1). A feeding station (S2) is situated on a second elevator, beside the receiving station (S1), on the side opposite to said orientation station (S0), for feeding tongues (170) for the buckles. The machine includes also pliers (50) sliding longitudinally over the above mentioned stations, between a retracted position and an forwarded position. By means of suitable working combinations between the pliers (50) and the two elevators, the tongue is taken over from the station (S2), hitched by the pliers (50), then transferred over the station (S1). Then, after the central leg of the buckle has been introduced into the tongue eye, the tongue is deformed by the jaws (51) of the pliers (50), thus connecting the tongue with the buckle. <IMAGE>
