Title
(EN) PROCESS AND APPARATUS FOR JOINING FLEXIBLE COMPONENTS
(FR) PROCÉDÉ ET APPAREIL D'ASSEMBLAGE D'ÉLÉMENTS SOUPLES
Abstract
(EN)
A process and apparatus for handling flexible components during manufacturing an assembled article. The process and apparatus involve at least one transfer the flexible components from one support surface to another. Control of the position and orientation of the flexible components during transfer from one support surface to another is managed through the spacing between the support surfaces and may further be managed by coordinated air pressure changes.
(FR)
L'invention porte sur un procédé et sur un appareil de manipulation d'éléments souples pendant la fabrication d'un article assemblé. Le procédé et l'appareil impliquent au moins un transfert des éléments souples d'une surface de support à une autre. La commande de la position et de l'orientation des éléments souples, pendant le transfert d'une surface de support à une autre, est gérée par l'intermédiaire de l'espacement entre les surfaces de support et peut en outre être gérée par des variations de pression d'air coordonnées.
