Abstract (en)

[origin: FR2762591A1] The invention concerns a linear conveyor (1) comprising a frame (1a) and a conveying track (2) adapted for transporting objects between one upstream end linked with an object loading station and a downstream end linked with an unloading station, characterised in particular in that: the track (2) is fixed relative to the conveyor (1) in the transporting direction of the objects between the upstream end and the downstream end; the track (2) can be vertically deformed; and said conveying track (2) is deformed and swept by at least one transverse wave spreading from the upstream end towards the downstream end, said wave, depending on the conveying track width, forming two bosses separated by a recess between which is arranged at least an object thereby ensuring the transport of the object between the two conveyor (1) ends and its rotation on itself.
