Functional Unit: Sorting Unit - as finished device
The sorting unit mMS functional unit examines
and sorts cube halves. It consists of
a testing station and a sorting track with
three pneumatic cylinders and three chutes.
The sorting unit can be attached to the
conveyor belt mMS functional unit. On the
conveyor belt, the workpieces are guided
past the sorting unit, where they are tested
for material characteristics and position
(orientation). These tasks are accomplished
using an optical sensor, an inductive sensor
and an ultrasonic sensor.
After the workpieces have been checked
and classified, the conveyor belt carries
them on to the discharge cylinders. The
examination and the resulting possible
selection or sorting are defined by the
control program and are not predetermined
by the assembly.
The operating pressure is 4 bar. The operating voltage is 24 VDC.
