Abstract (en)

The container emptying method has a full container (3) supplied to an emptying point via a pivoted frame (14) into which the container is fitted, before transport of the emptied container together with the frame back to the delivery point, at which the emptied container is replaced by a full container. An Independent claim for a container emptying device is also included.

Abstract (de)

Beschrieben wird ein Verfahren und eine Vorrichtung zum aufeinanderfolgenden Entleeren von Artikel enthaltenden Behältern (Vollbehältern), die an einer Aufgabestation in einen Rahmen überführt, danach mit dem Rahmen zu einer Entleerungsstation bewegt und dort entleert werden, wonach sie mit dem Rahmen zu der Aufgabestation zurückbewegt werden. Das Verfahren und die Vorrichtung bezwecken eine gegenüber dem Bekannten schnellere und einfachere Befüllung des Rahmens, der insbesondere Teil eines Schwenkmechanismus ist, mit Vollbehältern. Die Lösung besteht darin, daß ein weiterer Vollbehälter beim Überführen in den Rahmen den darin befindlichen leeren Behälter (Leerbehälter) unmittelbar oder mittelbar aus dem Rahmen entfernt. Mit dem Verfahren und der Vorrichtung ist der Vorteil verbunden, daß der in einem Rahmen befindliche Leerbehälter auf dem kürzesten Weg durch einen Vollbehälter ersetzt werden kann, so daß der Rahmen sehr schnell für eine erneute Schwenkbewegung zur Verfügung steht. <IMAGE>
