Two Slides on a Common Shaft 12-18-98 Extended guide shafts act as dowels Pallet Pallet bushing MF1 Front flange mount Modified Toolbar Check Probes Product Mounting plate attached to slide end caps Left hand slide Right hand slide Tall blocks (Code BL) Guide shafts Riser blocks Track Parts Adapter plate VB Shaft mounting blocks "Comb" Station table top Lift and Carry Mechanism Tandem Cylinder Pick & Place Pallet Lift Station An electrical test is performed by bringing check probes in from both sides to contact the terminal screws on a transformer. A pair of guide shafts extend through a modified toolbar positioned in the center and supporting two individual slides. Both of the slide's piston rods are attached to the center toolbar. Depending on the trans- former model tested, either the left or right (or both) sets of check probes can be activated to contact the product. One EZ Series Slide joined by a simple adapter plate to a second, smaller EZ Slide forms a two-axis motion device that carries a “comb” which engages parts in an overhead feeder track. The parts are lifted slightly so that work can be performed on them (assembly, checking, ink branding, etc.). The horizontal motion shuttles the parts forward and pushes a part off the end of the track. Next the vertical unit retracts, lowering the “comb” while the horizontal unit returns ready to repeat the cycle. Here are a few ways standard EZ Series Slides can be custom configured to precisely fit your application. An EZ Series Slide with front flange mounting (MF1) used as a pallet lift mechanism on a conveyor type assembly system. Extra length guide shafts extend through the slide's toolbar and act as locating dowels that engage pallet bushings to provide precise pallet positioning. Optional single support beam (Code "SB") on EZ Series horizontal motion MV1Mounting style with B1 Mtg bars Adapter plate EZ Series tandem cylinder vertical motion Parts track Parts nest Indexing dial SPG Series Gripper 1 2 3 This pick & place application features a three-position tandem cylinder on the vertical motion allowing the track fed parts to be picked up at one level and placed into the nest on the dial at a lower level. 1 is retract position for tandem cylinder; 2 is mid position; 3 is extend position.
