Abstract (en)

[origin: WO0056648A1] The device comprises two successive belt conveyors (26, 28) for transporting products (14) in a slat formation (S) along the first conveyor path (10). A release device (22) is mounted on the downstream end of the first belt conveyor (26), consisting of a deflection roller (36) for the conveyor belt (34) of the belt conveyor (26), a guide element (32) embodied as a roller (38) and a drive element (46). The upstream end (66) of a transfer conveyor (52) is coupled to the drive element (46). When the free end (64) is in return position and the guide element (32) is in idle position (30), the slat formation (S) is transported in a straight line along the first conveyor path (10). If a product (14) from the slat formation (S) is to be transferred to the second conveyor path (18), the guide element (32) is then placed in release position (30') and the end (64) is placed in the working position (66') by means of the drive element (46). As a result of the curvature thus produced in the active trunk (34'), the front edge (24) and the following edge area (24') of the product (14) to be fed to the second conveyor path (18) is raised and is introduced into the conveyor gap (54) of the second conveyor path (18).
