(EN) SINGLE MOTOR ROBOT
(FR) ROBOT A MOTEUR UNIQUE
Abstract
(EN)
A low cost robot (10) is constructed using a constant speed motor (12) which drives a gear box (14) having two output shafts (16, 18) which rotate in opposite directions. Each of the shafts (16, 18) has a brake disk (20) thereon and independently rotatable about the shaft (16, 18) is a brake caliper (26, 54) assembly which is in turn connected via a chain (42, 58) to a tool bearing member (48) to be moved. By variously activating one, the other or both of the calipers (26, 54), position and speed of the tool arm 50) can be exactly controlled. More than one arm or axis may be controlled off of the motor (12) leading to further economies of manufacture.
(FR)
On réalise un robot à coût réduit (10) utilisant un moteur à vitesse constante (12). Ledit moteur entraîne une boîte de vitesses (14) doté de deux tiges de sortie (16, 18) tournant dans des sens opposés. Chaque tige (16, 18) comprend une poulie-frein (20), un ensemble d'étrier de frein (26, 54) indépendamment autour de ladite tige (16, 18) étant également prévu. Ledit ensemle est relié, à l'aide d'une chaîne (42, 58), à un organe porte-outil (48) devant se déplacer. En actionnant soit l'un, soit l'autre, soit les deux étriers (26, 54) on peut contrôler, de façon précise, la position et la vitesse du bras de l'outil (50). On peut également contrôler, à l'aide dudit moteur (12) plusieurs bras ou axes ce qui apporte des économies accrues à la fabrication.
