Development of an Automated Part Loading and Unloading System for a Cylindrical Die Thread Roller 2007-01-3916

This paper outlines the design of a part transport and loading/unloading automation system for a cylindrical die thread roller, enumerating many of the design decisions encountered. Specifically, a transport tray system is proposed and prototyped as a benchmark for factory automation. Details of an automation system which will interface with the proposed transport tray system are discussed. A gripping system which accommodates a wide variety of fastener head styles is developed to work in conjunction with the tray concept, and prototyped with favorable results.
