Title
(EN) METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR FEEDING ELONGATED ELEMENTS
(FR) PROCÉDÉ ET APPAREIL D'ALIMENTATION D'ÉLÉMENTS ALLONGÉS
Abstract
(EN)
The method for feeding elongated elements, in particular metal profiles, for example intended for a cutting and/or bending cycle, comprises the steps of preparing a plurality of elongated elements (2), arranged side by side, in particular in a disordered way, along a longitudinal direction, resting on a support plane (3), actuating a gripping unit (4) according to a collecting motion at the support plane (3), so that at least a part of the elements (2) is collected at a respective gripping portion (2a), actuating the gripping unit (4) according to a lifting motion so as to lift the gripping portion (2a) from the support plane (3), actuating in a inserting motion a transfer unit (5) comprising at least one support member (51) arranged on the side of the gripping unit (4) along the longitudinal direction to be inserted below the elements (2) collected at least at a respective portion (2b) spaced from the gripping portion (2a).
(FR)
L'invention concerne un procédé d'alimentation en éléments allongés, en particulier de profilés métalliques, par exemple destinés à un cycle de coupe et/ou de cintrage, comprenant les étapes consistant à préparer une pluralité d'éléments allongés (2), disposés côte à côte, en particulier de manière désordonnée, le long d'une direction longitudinale, reposant sur un plan de support (3), à actionner une unité de préhension (4) selon un mouvement de collecte au niveau du plan de support (3), de sorte qu'au moins une partie des éléments (2) soit collectée au niveau d'une section de préhension respective (2a), à actionner l'unité de préhension (4) selon un mouvement de levage de façon à soulever la section de préhension (2a) à partir du plan de support (3), à actionner, dans un mouvement d'insertion, une unité de transfert (5) comprenant au moins un élément de support (51) disposé sur le côté de l'unité de préhension (4) le long de la direction longitudinale, à insérer sous les éléments (2) collectés au moins au niveau d'une section respective (2b) espacée de la partie de préhension (2a).
