DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE PREFERRED EMBODIMENTS Reference will now be made in detail to the preferred embodiments of the present invention, examples of which are illustrated in the accompanying drawings, wherein like reference numerals refer to the like elements throughout. And this does not mean that the spirit and scope of the present invention are limited.

In the food material measuring apparatus 100 of this embodiment,

A hopper 10 provided with a space in which food ingredients can be stored;

An inclined portion 20 formed at a lower portion of the hopper 10 and narrowing an inner width of the hopper 10;

A first hole 31 formed in the upper portion of the inclined portion 20;

A second hole 32 formed in the lower portion of the inclined portion 20;

A first piston 41 embedded in the first hole 31 and protruding or being inserted outward;

A second piston (42) embedded in the second hole (32) and protruding or being inserted outward;

And a discharge port 11 formed in a lower portion of the hopper 10 at a position corresponding to the second hole 32.

The hopper 10 is provided with a space in which food ingredients can be stored. The top may be closed. The hopper 10 may be made of a metal plate, a plastic material, or the like.

The inclined portion 20 is formed at the bottom of the hopper 10 and narrows the inner width of the hopper 10. The inclined portion 20 has a first hole 31 and a second hole 32 formed therein. The grooves between the protruding structures 160 and the inclined portion 20 guide the food material in the direction of the first hole 31 and the second hole 32 to move.

A first hole 31 is formed in an upper portion of the inclined portion 20 and a second hole 32 is formed in a lower portion of the inclined portion 20.

The first piston 41 is embedded in the first hole 31 and can be protruded or inserted toward the outside. Also, the second piston 42 may be embedded in the second hole 32 and protruded or inserted toward the outside. The first piston (41) and the second piston (42) can be operated by hydraulic or pneumatic pressure. It is preferable that the first piston 41 and the second piston 42 cross and protrude. When the first piston 41 and the second piston 42 intersect and protrude, a space of the food material naturally forms in a downward direction of the hopper 10, and the space is formed.

A discharge port 11 is formed in a lower portion of the hopper 10 at a position corresponding to the second hole 32. When the second piston (42) protrudes, the food material is discharged to the outside through the discharge port (11).

When the food material is discharged through the discharge port (11), it moves to the upper portion of the conveying member (50). The vibrating device 61 is further coupled to the conveying member 50, so that the conveying member 50 vibrates. The conveying member 50 is formed so as to be inclined, and as a result, the food material moves downward by the vibration and the inclined surface. A weighing box 170 is coupled to the distal end of the conveying member 50, so that the weight of the food raw material can be measured.

Although only one conveying member 50 is shown in this embodiment, the conveying members 50 may be installed in the plurality of the ejecting openings 11, respectively.

The transfer member 50 is coupled to the discharge port 11 to transfer the raw material, and the lower portion is transparent.

A vibration device (61) is coupled to the lower portion of the conveying member (50). When the oscillating device 61 is operated on the conveying member 50 arranged so as to be inclined, the raw material such as powder form slides downward.

A horizontal holding device 70 is coupled to a lower portion of the conveying member 50. The horizontal holding device 70 is coupled to the lower portion of the conveying member 50 and can be controlled to be inclined in the left-right direction by the control unit of the control unit 90. [ In order to prevent the raw materials coming along the conveying member 50 from being gathered and scattered, the conveying member 50 should be arranged so as to be inclined in the direction of progress of the raw material, but should be kept horizontal in the horizontal direction.

A heat ray (64) is coupled to the conveying member (50). When heat is generated by the heat line 64, the moisture of the raw material moving on the conveying member 50 can be evaporated. It is easy to keep the humidity of the raw material low. In addition, the flavor can be increased by properly applying heat to the raw material.

A plurality of light emitting portions 62 are arranged below the conveying member 50. The light emitting portion 62 may be disposed at a lower portion of the conveying member 50 in a checkered pattern.

A light receiving portion 63 is coupled to the upper portion of the conveying member 50. Light emitted from the light emitting portion 62 can be recognized through the light receiving portion 63. [ The light emitting portion 62 is covered when the raw material is present on the conveying member 50 so that the light receiving portion 63 can not receive the light irradiated by the light emitting portion 62. Since the plurality of light emitting units 62 and the light receiving units 63 are arranged, the control unit 90 can confirm where the raw materials are gathered or the raw materials are absent. When the raw materials are agglomerated, the horizontal holding device 70 is driven to keep the conveying member 50 horizontal in a direction intersecting with the direction of progress of the raw material.

A humidity sensor 65 is coupled to the inside of the hopper 10. It can be determined from the humidity sensor 65 whether there is a large amount of water in the raw material. During the storage of the raw material, or during the rainy season, much water can be absorbed into the raw material. This may cause deterioration in storage at a later time.

The communication unit 80 is coupled to the feeding member 50 and connected to the external server 200 to obtain humidity information from the external server 200. [ The external server 200 stores weather data and the communication unit 80 can obtain temperature and humidity information of the current location from the external server 200 through wireless communication.

The control unit 90 controls the movement of the raw material moving on the upper portion of the conveying member 50 and the moisture amount.

On the other hand, the horizontal holding device 70 includes a first ascending module 71 coupled to one side of the lower portion of the conveying member 50; And a second ascending module 72 coupled to the other side of the lower portion of the conveying member 50.

The control unit 90 acquires the information of the humidity sensor 65 and the external humidity information from the communication unit 80 and the control unit 90 determines the time when the raw material can receive heat above the conveying member 50. The time during which the raw material stays on the conveying member 50 is adjustable by controlling the vibration intensity of the vibration device 61 by the control unit 90.

The control unit 90 detects whether the raw material is uniformly spread on the conveying member 50 based on the information obtained from the light receiving unit 63. When the raw material is not spread over the conveying member 50, The first ascending module 71 and the second ascending module 72 are controlled to tilt the conveying member 50. As a result, the raw material spreads evenly on the conveying member 50.

The first ascent module 71 and the second ascent module 72 comprise a combination of a cylinder and a piston. When the first ascending module 71 is raised, it is tilted to the right, and when the second ascending module 72 is ascending, it is tilted to the left.

5 and 6 are perspective views of a packaging apparatus according to another embodiment of the present invention. The packaging apparatus can be configured using the food material metering apparatus 100 described above.

While the present invention has been particularly shown and described with reference to exemplary embodiments thereof, it is to be understood that the invention is not limited to the disclosed exemplary embodiments. Modifications and additions by those skilled in the art to an equivalent range based on the embodiments will also fall within the scope of the present invention.
