Abstract

The figures show a tilt table on which elongated tube profiles are arranged, with the profiles containing components 10 to be mounted by a robot. The table 1 is pivotally supported at one end 3 (Fig. 1). A hydraulic device 4 is arranged for moving an axis 6 provided with wheels 5 into two alternative positions a and b. A follower arm 7 is pivotally supported at one end by axis 6. The other end of the follower arm is pivotally mounted to the table 1, whereby at the movement of the axis 6 from position a to position b the table 1 will be tilted upwards from its initial position to its tilted position. As shown in Fig. 2, receiving means 8 with recesses 9 are arranged for each of the tube profiles 2.

Tilt Table for a Component Feeder

The figures show a tilt table on which elongated tube profiles are arranged, with the profiles containing components 10 to be mounted by a robot. The table 1 is pivotally supported at one end 3 (Fig. 1). A hydraulic device 4 is arranged for moving an axis 6 provided with wheels 5 into two alternative positions a and b. A follower arm 7 is pivotally supported at one end by axis 6. The other end of the follower arm is pivotally mounted to the table 1, whereby at the movement of the axis 6 from position a to position b the table 1 will be tilted upwards from its initial position to its tilted position. As shown in Fig. 2, receiving means 8 with recesses 9 are arranged for each of the tube profiles 2. When the table is tilted upwards, the components 10 are fed from the tube profiles into the recesses 9, whereupon the table is moved back to its initial position. The recesses 9 in the receiving means are arranged in such a way that it is easy to pick up the components by the robot gripper.
