Abstract (en)

[origin: WO0048120A1] The invention relates to a method and installation for dehacking flat, rectangular objects such as cards that are made of a rigid or semi-rigid material and which are stacked on top of each other in a vertical position in at least one pile, whereby the last card of the pile is suctioned and individually grasped, the dehackable card (C) is placed in a vertical position between at least one pair of horizontal, parallel needles (30) that are respectively arranged opposite two zones (32) facing the surface of the card that is gripped adjacent to the two parallel, opposite (10) edges of the card by elastically deforming said card in order to result in temporary bending of the card that is to be dehacked around a bending axis (L) that is substantially horizontally parallel to the needles (30). The invention is characterized in that the card that is to be dehacked (C) is placed in between two horizontal needles at 30 DEG parallel to the axis (L) of the maximum length of the card in order to result in temporary bending of the card by elastically bending the card (C) around the axis (L).
