Title: METHOD FOR ORIENTING TWO WORKPIECES TO FORM A JOINING CONNECTION AND MANIPULATOR
Abstract:
The invention relates to a method for orienting two workpieces (102, 103) to form a joining connection, wherein in a longitudinal orientation step the first workpiece (103) is oriented relative to the second workpiece (103) along at least one of the workpiece edges by means of a linear movement of at least one of the grippers (13, 14) relative to the other gripper (13, 14), and wherein the longitudinal orientation step is carried out during transportation of the workpieces (102, 103) from the provisioning station (3) to the processing station (4). The invention also relates to a manipulator (2) that comprises a first gripper (13) and a second gripper (14).
