AbstractAn apparatus for supplying or charging a spinning preparatory machine with cans transported on transporting trolleys and moving to and from a can filling position of the spinning preparatory machine. There is provided a revolving can transporting device which is driven incrementally or stepwise and which contains a plurality of essentially equally spaced can entrainment members for entraining or engaging empty cans placed upon the transporting trolleys and for moving such cans into the spinning preparatory machine where the empty cans are filled and for moving the refilled cans back onto a transporting trolley. Further there is provided a trolley shifting device which can be moved substantially at right angles to, and outside the path of, the can transporting device, the trolley shifting device being movable in coordinated stepped sequence to the movement of the revolving can transporting device.
