Abstract

PROBLEM TO BE SOLVED: To provide a tablet feeder which prevents dropping of tablets from the pocket arranged around the outside of the rotor in tablet storage case of the tablet feeder when the storage case is operated and put on and off. SOLUTION: This tablet feeder consists of tablet storage case 1 and supporting stand 2. At inner bottom 3 in the storage case 1, a rotor 4 is arranged so that freely rotated. Around outer of the rotor 4, pockets 5 is equipped at fixed intervals. This rotor 4 is rotated by the power from a motor 13 send through a gear 12. At inner bottom of the storage case 1, there is an elastic engaging material 10 which has teeth-like parts at its tip. Due to this elastic engaging material 10, when the storage case 1 is put off from the supporting stand 2, the rotor is prevented from rotating by the teeth-like parts biting with the gear at lower tip of the rotor. This engaging material 10 is arranged so that its teeth-like parts engages and makes the rotor to rotate in reverse, compared to the direction when tablets are paid and served.

The tablet feeder has a dove-shaped rotor at the bottom of the case and a rotatable disk-shaped rotor rotatably fitted around a rotating shaft. Is mounted with a driven gear, and a motor for rotating and driving the rotor is mounted on the support base. The drive gear at the output shaft end of this motor engages with the driven gear when the storage case is assembled into the support base. It has become.

When tablets stored in such a tablet feeder are to be refilled at an intermediate stage or at the final stage of the amount of stored tablets, the tablet storage case is generally separated from the support base to form a tablet storage case. Tablets are replenished. However, in the path for transmitting the rotational power from the motor via the gears of the rotor to separate the storage case from the support base, when the storage case is separated or assembled, the teeth of the driven gear and the drive gear may have a slight contact with the teeth. And the rotor may rotate slightly.

[0007] If the rotor is slightly rotated before the rotor has stopped just before discharging the tablet from the pocket to the discharge path, the position of the pocket completely matches the discharge path due to this slight rotation, The tablets are dropped and discharged without any discharge command, and the number of tablets in the storage case is slightly changed. This is due to the fact that there is no means for preventing the rotation shaft of the rotor lower portion provided on the storage case side of the conventional tablet feeder from rotating when the storage case is attached or detached.

[0010] The tablet feeder of the present invention is used by detachably mounting a tablet storage case on a support base. A predetermined amount of tablets is stored in the storage case in advance, and the tablets are sequentially and sequentially discharged one by one from a discharge path by rotating the rotor. If you try to remove the storage case from the support base during tablet supply or at the last stage for tablet replenishment or inspection, the tablet in the pocket may stop just before falling into the discharge path. is there.

When the storage case is removed in this state, the gears for transmitting the rotational force of the motor to the rotor are separated from each other, but if no means is taken, the gears are engaged at this time. Is slightly changed, the gear on the rotor side rotates, and the tablet in the pocket falls to the discharge path.
However, in the present invention, since the rotation preventing means for preventing the rotation of the rotor is attached to the lower bottom of the storage case to which the rotor is attached, unexpected rotation of the rotor is completely prevented,
The tablet does not fall from the rotor pocket with such a slight rotation. In this case, the rotation preventing means using the elastic engagement member uses the elasticity to engage the engagement member with the drive gear, and when the engagement imparts rotation to the drive gear, the direction is driven. Rotation preventing means is provided so that the gear is in the opposite direction to the rotor rotation direction during tablet dispensing. Therefore, even if the drive gear rotates during the engagement, the tablet is not discharged to the discharge path.
