Abstract

Robotics are frequently employed in the assembly of an electrophotographic printing machine. A parts feeder is required in a robotics system. The parts feeder for O-rings or other rings or loop shaped parts has a helical spring rotating around a metal tube. The metal tube can be bent to any desired shape for the feed function. The slowly rotating spring moves the parts forward to a suitably shaped pick up point. The robot receives the part at the pick up point.
