Title: SYSTEM AND METHOD OF HANDLING SLENDER BODIES IN A MACHINING AND VERIFICATION PLANT
Abstract:
A method and a system for handling slender bodies is disclosed in a semi-finished production plant, comprising at least a cutting station (C) apt to separate slender bodies (1) from a continuous wire, a finishing station (E) of the head ends of said slender bodies (1), at least a dimensional verification station (F) downstream of said finishing station (E), and a transporting equipment for transporting said slender bodies (1) between each of said stations, wherein at or upstream of said cutting station (C) a marking unit is provided to apply a reference marking on said slender bodies (1), which working identifies an original attitude comprising at least an angular position of said slender bodies (1) with respect to a continuous wire from which they were separated, said transporting equipment comprises gripping and locking assembly (24) of said slender bodies (1), apt to lock at least the angular position of said reference mark with respect to a relative reference system of said transport equipment, and wherein upstream of said finishing station (E) it is provided a detecting and storing unit for data of at least said angular position with respect to said relative reference system, and means for determining said original attitude of said slender bodies on the basis of said data at least in said dimensional verification station (F) are also provided.
