Abstract

This article describes a system arrangement for feeding uniquely packaged state-of-the-art surface-mounted components (SMCs). The feeding system disclosed herein is shown in the plan view of Fig. 1 and in the side view of Fig. 2. This system can be used in any suitable robot, such as the cartesian coordinate robot shown here. An index table 1 holds component packages 2 and allows the operator to conveniently load and unload component packages at manual station 3. The table cycles to deliver full packages to component unload station (Image Omitted) 4. This station provides a lead screw elevator assembly 5, shown in detail in Fig. 2, and is mounted under the table at the position indicated in Fig. 1.

4. This station provides a lead screw elevator assembly 5, shown in detail in Fig. 2, and is mounted under the table at the position indicated in Fig. 1. This assembly pushes upward through robot table 6, index table 1, and component package 2 to lift components to level sense unit 7, the robot component picking height.
