Programmable Manipulator Handling System for Testing Small Batch Sizes
This handling system is capable of test handling small batches of different-
sized modules or other electrical apparatus.
The system consists of a robot unit 10 provided with a module-clamping
element 14 capable of grasping and manipulating modules. The unit 10 has
separable tray storage units 16, 22, 24, and 26 arranged about and within
working distance of the unit, and a module test can 18 with test socket 20 also
within working distance. The units 16, 22, 24 and 26 each have a means to hold
two stacks of trays capable of being loaded with modules or other electrical work
pieces. In operation, one stack will be filled with trays filled with modules, and
the adjacent stack is for holding empty trays. As indicated in unit 32, a spring
mechanism 36 is provided to maintain the top trays even with the top surface of
the unit, and a clamping device 34 holds it in position. As additional trays are
deposited on each stack, the lower tray will be retracted downwardly into the unit.
A computer 12 is provided for instructing and controlling the robot unit 10 to carry
out desired test handling operations. The instructions can be permanently stored
as programs 28 for controlling the robot unit 10 to accomplish specific test
handling operations. A keyboard and display unit 30 is provided for entering
instructions and viewing data.
A typical operation might consist of the robot unit 10 picking u...
