Abstract (en)

The article is deposited on to the feed conveyor (11) in a continuous and/or transition-free manner from the pegs it has suspended by. The item is deposited on a top section (32) of a rotatingly driven conveyor belt (29) of the conveyor (11). During the process, at least a part of the lower peg halves (21) of the pegs (14) holding the item is in contact with the belt section.

Abstract (de)

Beim Zuführen von Wäschestücken zu einer Mangel oder dergleichen wird jeweils ein von Klammern (14) gehaltenes Wäschestück durch eine Spreizeinrichtung (10) ausgestreckt und danach auf einen Zuführförderer (10) übergeben. Diese Übergabe des Wäschestücks an den Zuführförderer erfolgt bislang so, dass mit Abstand über dem Zuführförderer (11) die Klammem (14) das Wäschestück freigeben und ein oberer Bereich desselben auf das Obertrum 32 eines Fördergurt (29) des Zuführförderers (11) fällt. Dabei kommt es zu einer unerwünschten Faltenbildung am Wäschestück, worunter die Mangelqualität leidet. Gemäß der Erfindung legen die Klammem (14) das Wäschestück stufenlos bzw. absatzlos auf das Obertrum (32) des Zuführförderers (11) ab. Das Wäschestück wird von den Klammern (14) dabei sozusagen auf das Obertrum (32) des Zuführförderers (11) ohne herunterzufallen aufgezogen, wodurch eine Faltenbildung im Wäschestück vermieden wird. <IMAGE>
