Title (EN) GRIPPING DEVICE FOR POSITIONING SHEET-LIKE OBJECTS
(FR) DISPOSITIF DE PREHENSION CONÇU POUR POSITIONNER DES OBJETS DE TYPE FEUILLE
Abstract:
(EN) The invention relates to a mechanically positioned gripping device which is connected to a transfer apparatus for transferring sheet-like objects, such as electrodes, from one position to another, said transfer apparatus comprising members for transferring a loading member from one position to another and members connected to said loading member for moving the load in an essentially vertical position. According to the invention, in order to position the gripping device (5) with respect to the unloading and loading position (8, 14), the gripping device (5) is attached to a control frame (4) installed in between the transfer apparatus loading member (1) and the gripping device (5) by means of at least one control member (11), so that while the control frame (4) is positioned in the unloading and loading position (8, 14), the gripping device (5) is movable in relation to the control frame (4) in order to position the gripping device (5) in the unloading and loading position (8, 14).
(FR) Cette invention se rapporte à un dispositif de préhension positionné mécaniquement, qui est relié à un appareil de transfert conçu pour transférer des objets de type feuille, tels que des électrodes, d'une position à une autre. Ledit appareil de transfert comporte des éléments conçus pour transférer un élément de chargement d'une position à une autre et des éléments reliés audit élément de chargement, conçus pour déplacer la charge en position sensiblement verticale. Conformément à l'invention, afin de positionner le dispositif de préhension (5) par rapport à la position de déchargement et de chargement (8, 14), le dispositif de préhension (5) est fixé à un bâti de commande (4) installé entre l'élément de chargement (1) de l'appareil de transfert et le dispositif de préhension (5) au moyen d'au moins un élément de commande (11), de sorte que lorsque le bâti de commande (4) est positionné en position de déchargement et de chargement (8, 14), le dispositif de préhension (5) peut être déplacé par rapport à ce bâti (4) afin d'amener celui-ci en position de déchargement et de chargement (8, 14).
