Title
(EN) PANEL UNLOADING AND PALLET HANDLING SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR OPERATING THE SAME
(FR) SYSTÈME DE DÉCHARGEMENT DE PANNEAUX ET DE MANIPULATION DE PALETTES ET PROCÉDÉ DESTINÉ À UTILISER CELUI-CI
Abstract
(EN)
This invention relates to panel unloading and pallet handling system and method for operating the same, said system consists of rotary shuttle with tooling, robots with tooling, panel conveyors, and pallet handling conveyors. Rotary shuttle consists of two arms at 90° to each other and pivoted at pivot point with necessary tooling for accommodating the stamped part and driving mechanism to drive arm from loading point to unloading points. Said shuttle is placed at a centre line of the press line at down stream of last press. Said shuttle is also interlinked with at least two tool changing points and a spare shuttle located at one of the tool changing point. Two robots are symmetrically placed at the downstream of the said shuttle on either side of the press centerline for picking the stamped parts from shuttle and placing on conveyors. Said robots are provided with a facility to have a tool selection option based on requirement. Two panel conveyors are placed at the downstream of the said shuttle and away from said robots on either side of the press centerline at equidistance. Two pallet conveyors are placed on either side of the press centerline at equidistance in between panel conveyors.

La présente invention concerne un système de déchargement de panneaux et de manipulation de palettes et un procédé destiné à utiliser celui-ci, ledit système étant composé d'une desserte rotative avec outils, de robots avec outils, de transporteurs de panneaux, et de transporteurs pour manipulation de palettes. La desserte rotative est composée de deux bras disposés à 90° l'un par rapport à l'autre et pivotant au niveau d'un point de pivotement avec des outils nécessaires pour recevoir la pièce estampillée et un mécanisme d'entraînement pour entraîner le bras du point de chargement aux points de déchargement. Ladite desserte est placée au niveau d'une ligne médiane de la ligne de presse en aval de la dernière presse. Ladite desserte est également reliée à au moins deux points de changement d'outil et une desserte de réserve située au niveau d'un des points de changement d'outil. Deux robots sont placés de manière symétrique en aval de ladite navette de chaque côté de la ligne médiane de la presse pour sélectionner les pièces estampillées sur la desserte et les placer sur les transporteurs. Lesdits robots sont pourvus d'une fonction de sélection d'outil en fonction des besoins. Deux transporteurs de panneaux sont disposés en aval de ladite desserte et à distance desdits robots de chaque côté de la ligne médiane de la presse à égale distance. Deux transporteurs de palettes sont placés de chaque côté de la ligne médiane de la presse à égale distance entre les transporteurs de panneaux.
