Automatic Packing Machine Hopper of Six-Prism Pastel
Currently, in almost all stationery business, pastel, which is product with excellent performance and high value-added, is completely artificial packaged. Pastels have many colors (24, 36, 48, 54, etc.), and packaging workers are apt to confuse the colors of pastels which are loaded sequentially. To achieve rapid and orderly pastel packaging, it is necessarily to complete by automatic machinery. Unlike crayons, pastel is soft and easy to deformation, abrasion, adhesion. And six-prism pastel is easy to arching in hopper, leading to poor blanking. Therefore, present automatic packaging machine of crayon is unable to be used for pastel packaging. For the six prism Pastels automatic packaging machine, there are two problems to be solved: first, feed hopper and drop method, and second, the manner and control of orderly loading pastel into prop box. This study only considers the hopper, and blanking mode. The final hopper including bins, anti-bridging picks, kick wheel, blanking roller, etc. basically achieve controllable smooth six-prism pastel blanking.
