Abstract

This invention is a press adapter that was developed to remove seals from the vacuum seal on a robotic arm, and will also help to insure that the seal is seated properly. However, this device could be used for other equipment with the same size diameter hole. The invention is made out of Delrin (AF), which reduces the chances of scarring the insertion tool during the installation process.

This invention is a press adapter that was developed to remove seals from the vacuum seal on a robotic arm, and will also help to insure that the seal is seated properly. However, this device could be used for other equipment with the same size diameter hole. The invention is made out of Delrin (AF), which reduces the chances of scarring the insertion tool during the installation process.

This invention functions at its best when measured 1 .667 inches by .454 inches. A t this measurement, the tool sustains perpendicularity and concentricity, while the Delrin material reduces the wear of the tool. In using Delrin, the material is better suited in a repetitive usage than other plastic materials. The .454 inch diameter is needed for the seals to seat.
