Image Number 8 for United States Patent #4406391.
A system is provided for handling a strip of pocketed coil springs in an organized manner. An accumulator bin receives the strip from a conveyor assembly which oscillates about a pivot axis to feed the strip evenly across the width of the bin. The bin is designed to urge the first manufactured portions of the strip to the front portion thereof where it may be removed by a second conveyor assembly. Photosensitive devices may be provided to control the feeding of the strip to the bin and its removal therefrom.
