Title
(EN) A FEEDING ASSEMBLY, COMPONENT HANDLING ASSEMBLY AND METHOD OF FEEDING COMPONENTS
(FR) ENSEMBLE D'ALIMENTATION, ENSEMBLE DE MANIPULATION D'ÉLÉMENTS ET PROCÉDÉ D'ALIMENTATION D'ÉLÉMENTS
Abstract
(EN)
According to the present invention there is provided a feeding assembly comprising, a track along which components can be moved, said track comprising a sloped surface and a ledge, wherein said sloped surface slopes in a direction which is perpendicular to the direction which the components move along the track so that the components are maintained in a tilted orientation as they move along the track; a pickup platform which comprises a pocket which can receive components from said track; wherein the feeding assembly further comprise a pivot on which the pickup platform can be selectively rotated between a first position and second position, wherein in its first position the pocket is aligned with the track and the pocket is parallel with the sloped surface of the track, so that a component can move from the track into the pocket of the pickup platform, and in its second position the pocket is in a horizontal orientation. There is further provided a corresponding method of feeding components and a component handing assembly which uses the feeding assembly.

La présente invention concerne un ensemble d'alimentation, comprenant une piste le long de laquelle des éléments peuvent être déplacés, ladite piste comprenant une surface inclinée et un rebord, ladite surface inclinée étant inclinée dans une direction qui est perpendiculaire à la direction dans laquelle les éléments se déplacent le long de la piste, de telle sorte que les éléments sont maintenus selon une orientation oblique lorsqu'ils se déplacent le long de la piste ; une plateforme de collecte, qui comprend une poche qui peut recevoir des éléments à partir de ladite piste ; l'ensemble d'alimentation comprenant en outre un pivot sur lequel la plateforme de collecte peut être sélectivement mise en rotation entre une première position et une seconde position, dans sa première position, la poche étant alignée avec la piste et la poche étant parallèle à la surface inclinée de la piste, de telle sorte qu'un élément peut se déplacer à partir de la piste dans la poche de la plateforme de collecte, et dans sa seconde position, la poche étant dans une orientation horizontale. L'invention concerne en outre un procédé correspondant d'alimentation d'éléments et un ensemble de manipulation d'éléments qui utilise l'ensemble d'alimentation.
