Title (EN) INSERTABLE FASTENER INSTALLATION APPARATUS AND METHOD
(FR) APPAREIL ET PROCÉDÉ D’INSTALLATION DE FIXATION INSÉRABLE
Abstract:
(EN) An insertable fastener installation apparatus for a flat substrate has a thickness, T. A roller press station is used to press T-nuts into holes in the substrate. An optical vision system detects the location of the holes in the moving substrate and aligns the t-nuts with the holes. A computer controlled pick and place robot takes T-nuts from an escapement of a hopper feed system and aligns, but does not fully insert, the t-nuts in the substrate. A conveyor system feeds the substrates through the optical vision system, the pick and place robot station and the roller press station. A first roller is spaced apart from a second roller by a gap in the roller press station and the gap is less than the thickness of the substrate. The hopper feed system includes a bulk hopper, a bowl, a track and an escapement.
(FR) Selon la présente invention, un appareil d’installation de fixation insérable pour un substrat plat a une épaisseur, T. Un poste de presse à rouleaux est utilisé pour presser des écrous en T dans des trous dans le substrat. Un système de vision optique détecte l’emplacement des trous dans le substrat mobile et aligne les écrous en T avec les trous. Un robot de bras-transfert commandé par ordinateur prélève des écrous en T à partir d’un échappement d’un système d’alimentation à trémie et aligne, mais n’insère pas complètement, les écrous en T dans le substrat. Un système de transporteur alimente les substrats à travers le système de vision optique, le poste de robot de bras-transfert et le poste de presse à rouleaux. Un premier rouleau est espacé d’un deuxième rouleau par un espacement dans le poste de presse à rouleaux et l’espacement est inférieur à l’épaisseur du substrat. Le système d’alimentation à trémie comprend une trémie de vrac, une coupelle, une piste et un échappement.
