Abstract

Synchronization of intermittently activated conveyor belts is achieved by the adaptation of the method of synchronization of multiple Geneva wheels in parallel. The correlation of the index and dwell time ratios is discussed and the method for control and selection of these ratios is presented. Modification of the drivers for maximizing the interaction of the synchronized dwell times is discussed. These modifications offer a wide variety of index and dwell time ratios to be utilized for the adjustment and control of the synchronized incremental movements. Comparison and advantages of the modified drivers and the applications of this method are presented through illustrative situations.
