In this article, Truman will take you to understand the working principle of the loading and unloading manipulator.

Since the implementation of "Made in China 2025" in China, factory processing automation has made significant progress in the field of engineering. The original manual lathe processing method required high technical skills from technicians and was difficult to ensure uniform product accuracy. Now, it has been gradually replaced by professional machining automation.

The use of truss manipulators not only improves the efficiency of labor production, but also replaces humans in completing high-intensity, risky, repetitive and monotonous tasks, reducing human labor intensity. Many people say they want to understand how truss manipulators achieve the loading and unloading process.

1. The action of the loading process of the truss manipulator:

The CNC robotic arm of the loading and unloading robot moves along the X-axis to the top of the workpiece picking position and stops. Then, the Z-axis moves downward so that the open gripper can just grasp the workpiece. After the closed gripper grasps the workpiece, the Z-axis moves upward to the specified height, and then moves along the X-axis direction to the top of the worktable chuck. Then, the Z-axis moves downward to load the workpiece into the chuck or fixture. Then the chuck is clamped, and the Z-axis rises above the protective cover of the machine tool. The X-axis then moves to the waiting position to wait for the machine tool to complete the machining of the workpiece.

2. The action of the material handling process in the truss machinery:

After the loading and unloading robot completes the workpiece processing, the X-axis moves directly above the chuck, the Z-axis moves downward so that the gripper can just grasp the workpiece, and then applies air pressure to the gripper to merge and grasp the workpiece. The chuck is released, and the Z-axis moves up to the appropriate height. Then, it moves along the X-axis direction until the Z-axis reaches the discharge position, and the Z-axis descends to the discharge point. After opening the gripper to discharge, it lifts the Z-axis and enters the next feeding process.

The path arranged for the above actions needs to be in the same straight line as the loading and unloading mechanisms of the truss manipulator, such as the material tray and chuck, in order to meet the requirements of the manipulator for X-Z two-dimensional motion. If the actual situation is difficult to meet, an additional Y-axis can be added to the robotic arm, so that the CNC robotic arm can perform X-Y-Z three-dimensional motion and greatly enhance flexibility.

The above is the working principle of the loading and unloading truss manipulator. For customized truss manipulators, Truman Technology Co., Ltd. has strong design capabilities and good quality, which is very suitable for manufacturing enterprises.
