Abstract

PURPOSE:To contrive the automation of encasing operations by a method wherein tapering rootcrops are counted to a predetermined number and are transferred by a conveyor, a container is raised and its direction is changed at each reception of the rootcrops in a tiering manner and the rootcrops are placed on a sliding encasing line shutter to pack the container therewith. CONSTITUTION:Tapering rootcrops 1 are carried by a transfer conveyor A with the root side directed in the one direction intersecting the transfer direction perpendicularly and are transferred on a slide conveyor C while being counted by a detector B to the number of a first tiering lot and the individual rootcrops of the first tiering lot thus transferred are successively placed on an encasing line shutter D. When the placement is completed, the opening of the encasing line shutter D is started to place one group of the rootcrops of the first tiering lot into a container standing by on an elevation-cum-revolution mechanism E. After completion of the first tiering lot storage, a container is turned through 180 deg. in readiness for packing one group of the rootcrops of a second and later tiering lot being transferred in the same direction with the root side directed in the one direction intersecting the transfer direction perpendicularly.

Since the tapered box packing device of the present invention is constructed as described above, it has the following operational effects. The tapering root vegetables conveyed to the carry-out side of the carry conveyor are transferred to the slide conveyor while counting the number of pieces determined in advance by the detector at the carry-out side end, and to the discharge side end of the slide conveyor. The group of tapering root vegetables for one step of boxing that has been transported is sequentially transferred to the boxing line shutter by the transfer of the slide conveyor and its backward slide, and when the one step of tapering root vegetables for boxing is transferred and received on the boxing line shutter, By opening the line shutter, the group of tapered root vegetables for one stage of boxing can be housed together in a container that is placed on the lifting and swiveling mechanism and stands by. When the packaging of the tapering root vegetables group for one step in the box is completed, the elevating and swiveling mechanism swivels to change the direction of the stored tapering root vegetables by 180 ° and make it orthogonal to the conveying direction. It is possible to prepare for accommodating a group of tapering root vegetables in the second and subsequent stages of boxing, which are conveyed in the same direction with the root side facing in one direction and transferred to and received on the boxing line shutter. Therefore, according to the boxing device of the present invention,
It is possible to perform boxing work while automatically performing the fixed number of root vegetables (the number of storage per stage) and the direction of the root side and the large diameter neck side for each stage storage . As a result, it becomes possible to perform fixed-quantity boxing work with good yield, and it becomes an epoch-making boxing machine.
