Abstract (en)

[origin: WO0000414A1] The system comprises a conveyor surface between respective members of at least two pairs of support member sections (3). Each support member section (3) has a channel (5, 6) to accommodate a respective edge of the conveyor surface (12). A first pair of support member sections (14) has a convexly curved end and a pivot point (18). A second pair of support member sections (15) has a concavely curved end and this second pair of sections is adapted to pivot about the pair of pivot points (18). The channels (5, 6) adjacent the convex ends of the first sections (14) are so divergent as to allow connection with the channels (5, 6) adjacent to the concave ends of the second sections (15) at all times when the second sections are pivoted with their longitudinal axis at an angle of between 0 DEG and 45 DEG with respect to the longitudinal axis of said first sections.
