Title (EN) VACUUM HOLDER AND CARRIER WITH AUTONOMOUS VACUUM
(FR) SUPPORT À VIDE ET SYSTÈME DE TRANSPORT À VIDE AUTONOME
Abstract:
(EN) A vacuum holder (20) for articles (10), a combination of a vacuum holder (20) and an article (10), a system (70) for holding and conveying articles (10), and a method for holding and conveying articles (10) are disclosed. The vacuum holder (20) includes a main body (22) having a surface (16, 28) and an air passageway (26) leading to the surface (16, 28), and a valve (24) joined to the main body (22) and in fluid communication with the air passageway (26). An article (10) can be placed adjacent to the surface (16, 28) of the main body (22), and a vacuum can be drawn through the air passageway (26) to hold the article (10) to the vacuum holder (20). The valve (24) maintains the vacuum between the article (10) and the vacuum holder (20) without being connected to a vacuum source (60), until it is desired to release the article (10) from the vacuum holder (20).
(FR) L'invention concerne un support à vide (20) pour des articles (10), une combinaison d'un support à vide (20) et d'un article (10), un système (70) pour maintenir et transporter des articles (10), et un procédé pour maintenir et transporter des articles (10). Le support à vide (20) comprend un corps principal (22) ayant une surface (16, 28) et un passage d'air (26) menant à la surface (16, 28), et une vanne (24) reliée au corps principal (22) et en communication fluidique avec le passage d'air (26). Un article (10) peut être adjacent à la surface (16, 28) du corps principal (22), et un vide peut être appliqué à travers le passage d'air (26) pour maintenir l'article (10) sur le support à vide (20). La vanne (24) maintient le vide entre l'article (10) et le support à vide (20) sans être reliée à une source de vide (60), jusqu'à ce que l'on souhaite libérer l'article (10) du support à vide (20).
