Abstract

To facilitate the pick-up of individual screws by a robotic arm, while eliminating one movement required of that arm, a channel- like guide member, supporting screws by their respective heads, serially feeds the screws to a transversely pivotable shuttle member driven in alternate directions, through I 90Œ, by a suitable actuator.
