mechanization equipment of the vulcanizing
presses MV 600 serves for loading the blanks and unloading the
vulcanized diaphragms in an automatic cycle.
The basic portion of
the equipment are two travelling manipulators of box type moving on
aluminium sections and of which one serves for loading and the other
for unloading. The two manipulators move during the working cycle in
parallel at the front and rear portion of the vulcanizing presses.
Synchronization is obtained by means of an epicyclic gear with
stepping motor and a pair of tooth belts. An arm provided with eight
suction cups slides out from the loading manipulator and the cups pick
the blanks from a magazine arranged in the lower portion of the
manipulator and place then into the mould of the vulcanizing tool. At
the other side of the vulcanizing press travells in synchronism an
unloading manipulator with eight suction cups which serve to unload
the diaphragms from the press and place then into the finished
diaphragms magazine. The operator only changes the magazine with
blanks and vulcanized diaphragms. The
mechanization equipment is controlled by freely programmable automatic.
