Title (EN) INTEGRATED 3D METALLIZER
(FR) APPAREIL INTÉGRÉ DE MÉTALLISATION TRIDIMENSIONNELLE
Abstract:
(EN) An apparatus and method for metallizing parts in an efficient manner. The apparatus includes a plurality of plates stacked vertically and spaced from one another, wherein each plate has an outer perimeter. There is a plurality of part supports arranged about the outer perimeter of each plate. A support frame is secured to the plurality of plates such that it may rotate about the outer perimeter of the plates while maintaining substantially the same distance from the outer perimeter of each plate. There is one or more rotation drive systems attached to the support frame and positioned such that one or more compliant drive fingers are in close proximity to the outer perimeter of each plate. The stacked plates may be moved between a metallizer and parts loading and unloading stations in a convenient manner.
(FR) Cette invention concerne un appareil et un procédé permettant de métalliser des pièces de manière efficace. L'appareil comprend une pluralité de plaques empilées verticalement et espacées les unes des autres, chaque plaque présentant un périmètre extérieur. Une pluralité de supports de pièces est agencée autour du périmètre extérieur de chaque plaque. Un cadre de support est fixé à la pluralité de plaques de manière à pouvoir tourner autour du périmètre extérieur des plaques tout en maintenant sensiblement la même distance par rapport au périmètre extérieur de chaque plaque. Un ou plusieurs système(s) d'entraînement en rotation est/sont attaché(s)s au cadre de support et positionné(s) de telle sorte qu'un ou plusieurs doigt(s) d'entraînement conforme(s) est/sont à proximité étroite du périmètre extérieur de chaque plaque. L'invention permet de déplacer de manière pratique les plaques empilées entre un appareil de métallisation et des postes de chargement/déchargement de pièces.
