Linear Transport Device
This transportation device will move workpieces between closely placed tools
on an assembly line.
An aluminum extrusion 10 supports a moving platform 12 that moves along
the "X" axis driver through gears (not shown) that are mounted on the extrusion.
A platform 16 that moves along the "Y" axis is mounted on platform 12 which
also supports the drive 14 for the "Y" axis platform 16. In turn, the "Y" axis
supports the vertically moving "Z" axis drive 18 and carriage 20. The carriage 20
is fitted with a gripper mechanism (not shown) that holds the payload. The power
and control signals are transmitted through a multilayered flat umbilical cable 22
control whose movement is managed by a pulley and cable mechanism 24.
