Abstract (en)

[origin: WO0126972A1] The invention relates to an arrangement (1) of a conveyor section (2) for containers (10, 11, 12) that are conveyed on said conveyor section and that are in a filling position. Said containers are to be filled with items (3) or with a bulk material in a filling station (4) by means of a filling funnel (5). According to the invention, the conveyor section (2) is provided on at least one side immediately before, in and after the filling station (4) with a continuous toothed belt or a chain belt (6) and with a pertaining intermitting actuator (7) and spaced apart container carrying plates (8). Said plates can be positively engaged with the containers (10, 11, 12) that are open towards the top and that arrive on the conveyor section (2). Said plates supply the containers to the filling position one by one and return said containers once they are filled from the filling position to the conveying section (2), preferably in an accelerated clocked manner and optionally at the outlet thereof. The carrying plates (8) that are in the filling position, that adjoin and that extend transversely to the direction of conveyance (F) configure a filling funnel wall between the filling funnel (5) and a container to be filled.
