2. Description of the Related Art As a container holding method for different diameter containers in a conventional container processing apparatus, for example, in the case where the container processing apparatus is a rotary type liquid filling apparatus, the number corresponding to the number of valves is changed every time the diameter of the container changes. Usually, 40 to 125 container holders are exchanged, and therefore, the number of container holders corresponding to the number of valves is required for each type of different-diameter container, so that the manufacturing cost is high and the time for replacement is high. This has the drawback of not only lowering the operating rate but also increasing the number of work steps.

To this end, the first aspect of the present invention is to match a container having a different diameter that has been conveyed with the outer diameter of the side surface of the container while moving on a preset trajectory of the container processing apparatus. In a container holder that engages with and holds a recessed portion that has been transported, a holder main body having a recessed portion adapted to the maximum outer diameter of various containers to be moved has a container side surface outer diameter smaller than the recessed portion. The holding plates having the recessed portions conforming to the above are overlapped, and the slide positioning means by external power including manual operation is attached to the holding plates. A second aspect of the present invention is to move a container that has been conveyed into engagement with a recessed portion of the container holder that matches the outer diameter of the container side surface while moving along the trajectory of a preset circle of the container processing device. In a container holder for holding and transporting, the holder main body is made up of two holding plates that overlap each other and have their claws facing each other to form a recessed portion, and the holder plates are recessed in the same holder main body. The present invention is characterized in that recessed portion forming means including external means, which manually slides along a circular locus to form a recessed portion adapted to the side surface outer diameter of various containers, is attached without shifting the center of the portion.

In such a container holder 22, when the container holder 22 is made to correspond to the can 11 having a large outer diameter,
As shown in FIG. 3, several parts of the inner circumferences of the holding plates 14 and 15 are rotatably sandwiched between the roller 16 and the spacer 36, and fixed by the nut 35 and the screw shaft 37.
The screw holes and the nut 38 are adjusted so as to be parallel to the base 39 according to the height of the can, and then attached. Next, the servomotor with encoder 17 is moved and the screw shaft 18 is rotated via the rotation transmission unit 25. At this time, since the screw shaft 18 is formed with the right screw and the left screw on the side of the timing pulley, the holding plate slide bars 19 and 26 screwed into the screw shaft 18 are mounted on the screw shaft 18 so as to widen the space. The holding plates 14 and 15 which have moved and therefore fixed to the holding plate slide bars 19 and 26, respectively, slide to move the holding plate 1
The claws 20 and 21 of Nos. 4 and 15 become wider, and the concave portion 1 formed by the predetermined claws 20 and 21 is formed.
The center of the can 11 held by 3 coincides with the center of the valve of the liquid filling device.
Stops rotating. In addition, when the can 11 having a small outer diameter is used, as shown in FIG. 4, the servomotor with encoder 17 is rotated in the opposite direction to that of the can having a large outer diameter.
The holding plates 14 and 15 are slid to slide in a direction in which the distance between the claws 20 and 21 of the holding plates 14 and 15 is narrowed, and the recess 13 formed by the predetermined claws 20 and 21 is formed.
The rotation of the servomotor with encoder 17 is stopped at the point where the center of the can 11 held at the position coincides with the valve center of the liquid filling device.

In this embodiment, the widths of the claws 20 and 21 of the holding plates 14 and 15 are adjusted by the servomotor 17 having an encoder.
However, it goes without saying that the operation may be performed by an air cylinder or manually. Although the height adjustment was performed manually, a plate on which the screw shaft 37 and the servomotor with an encoder 17 are placed is arranged on the base 39 of the liquid filling device, and the plate is height-adjusted by a servomotor or an air cylinder or manually. Needless to say, it can be adjusted.

As described in detail above, according to the container holder for different diameter containers of the present invention, even when preparing to fill different diameter containers, it is necessary to replace with an acceleration arm corresponding to each diameter container. In addition, the preparation for filling the different-diameter container can be completed in a short time, and the operating rate of the device can be significantly improved. That is, in the first invention, for example, only the air cylinder is driven, and in the second invention, only the servomotor with an encoder is driven to cope with containers of two or more diameters without exchanging the acceleration arm. be able to. Further, since it is not necessary to prepare a concave portion for a container having a different diameter on the locus along which the container moves, the size of the entire container processing device together with the container holder can be reduced.
