Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9936628A1] Disclosed is a switchgear for a suspended conveyor device, wherein carriers for material to be conveyed are provided with rollers and guided on sliding rails. The tongue (33) of the switchgear is pivotally connected to a section of the sliding rails (7) by means of a hinged joint (35) between two points. The hinged joint (35) comprises a bridging element (61) joining the running profile (25) of the sliding rail section (7) to the running profile of the tongue of the switchgear (33), whereby said bridging element is mounted so that it can swivel and move around an axis (69) on the sliding rail section (7) and swivel and move around an axis (73) on the tongue of the switchgear. A respective roller guide surface (31) pertaining to the sliding rail section (7) and a roller guide surface (31) pertaining to the bridging element (61) are arranged next to each other in a transition area (60) between the sliding rail section (7) and the bridging element (61) to provide support for one roller of the carrier for material to be conveyed, in the direction of conveyance. A roller guide surface (75) pertaining to the bridging element (61) and a roller guide surface (45) of the tongue of the switchgear are arranged next to each other in a transition area (62) between the bridging element (61) and the tongue of the switchgear (33) to provide support for one roller in the direction of conveyance.
