Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9935072A1] The invention relates to a position-changing device (16) comprising displacement means (18) moved along a motion path (24) by means of a drive (22). The displacement means are driven at a speed (v) which corresponds at least approximately to the conveying speed (v2) of the second conveyor (14) to which the displacement means (18) convey the objects (28) at a set distance (A2). The objects arrive on the first belt conveyor (12) in an overlapping arrangement (S1) and are moved by said belt conveyor to the working area of the position-changing device (16).
