Title (EN) UNIVERSAL TIRE STACKING AND PALLETIZING END EFFECTOR ASSEMBLY AND SYSTEM AND METHOD OF USING SAME
(FR) ENSEMBLE ET SYSTEME UNIVERSELS POUR TERMINAL D'EMPILAGE ET DE PALLETISATION DE PNEUMATIQUES ET PROCEDE D'UTILISATION
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A robotic tire end effector apparatus (20) and system including a method for picking up and placing tires (T) positioned horizontally onto vertical stacks of tires (28). The apparatus and system (20) includes a totem support assembly (200) having a support housing (202) and support bars (204) capable of bearing against the inside diameter of a tire bead and a bottom assembly (100) mounted to the support housing (202) of the totem support assembly (200). The bottom assembly (100) includes pivot arms (104) and finger (108). The system includes a computer and program capable of receiving data from the tires for identification tracing tire location, allocation, pick optimization and continuous calculation of sorting and pick options.
(FR)L'invention concerne un dispositif (20) et un système robot de terminal de pneumatiques, ainsi qu'un procédé de préhension et de placement de pneumatiques (T) disposés horizontalement sur des piles verticales de pneumatiques (28). Ce dispositif (20) et ce système comprennent un ensemble (200) de support de type totem comprenant un boîtier (202) de support et des barres (204) de support capables de venir s'appuyer contre le pourtour intérieur d'un pneumatique et un ensemble (100) inférieur assemblé au corps (202) de support de l'ensemble (200) de support de type totem. L'ensemble (100) inférieur comprend des bras (104) pivotants munis de doigts (108). Le système comprend un ordinateur et un programme qui peut recevoir les données relevées sur les pneumatiques afin d'assurer les opérations d'identification, de repérage de l'emplacement, d'attribution, d'optimisation de la préhension et de calcul en continu des options de tri et de collecte.
