AbstractA can transport carriage for supplying an automatic spinning machine with full cans of sliver includes a rotating turntable having multiple can parking positions at equal radial spacings from the turntable axis and a can manipulating arrangement movable between a can transfer position immediately above one of the parking positions and a can delivery position at the spinning machine for moving a full sliver can from the one parking position to the spinning machine. An indexing drive rotatably indexes the turntable by one parking position for individually positioning each parking position in sequence at the can transfer position of the manipulating arrangement.
