How Does It Work?
The Model TL200 robot tooling is positioned within the press at a “pounce” location waiting for the powder metal press to send the “ready to pick” signal. The press molds and ejects a part and sends the “ready to pick” signal to the Model TL200. The robot moves into the press and grips the part, lifts it off the lower die punch and exits the press sending the “robot clear” signal to the press.
The press starts molding the next part. The robot moves to the sinter plate and places the molded component at a predetermined location on the plate, building a pattern of parts. The process repeats until the sinter is full and the plate is then discharged from the cell. A new sinter plate is conveyed in, positioned for loading and the process repeats.
