Abstract

For the defined positioning and the subsequent removal of a workpiece with a flange shaped edge, the mechanism is provided in the peripheral area of the workpiece with a number of fixtures, each comprising two movably arranged pawls. For a workpiece with a round flange, there are preferably three such fixtures staggered by 120 angular degrees to each other. One of these fixtures is shown in the figures.
