AP-171  Robotic Placer/Trav-a-Track


This part placer is well suited for robotic applications. The part placer includes a hardened inclined steel Trav-a-Track and a mechanically actuated two-stage parts escapement. During the placement head’s return stroke, the escapement pulls one piecepart forward in the track so that the escapement’s front rammer finger can push the piecepart into the placement jaws. The placement jaws are machined to grip the piecepart until the placing stroke properly assembles the piecepart with the workpiece. A vibratory bowl feeder system includes a short feed track section and a release device for the pieceparts. The feed system is mounted at a location where the robot can easily refill the Trav-a-Track when necessary.
