Cartesian Control Storage Module
Stores pieces according to the type of material they are made of. The movement is carried out through a 3-axis Cartesian system for picking up or storing the pieces on three different levels.
The store has 9 positions, 3 for each level. A sensor positioned on the gripper allows a first inspection of the store, to determine which positions are free and which are occupied.
Two pneumatic cylinders carry out the translations along the X and Y axes while a microcylinder coupled to the gripping system deals with the movement along the Z axis.
The module is assembled on a sectioned aluminium base, and it can be easily moved around the laboratory.
Mod. MCE-620/EV can be fully controlled using a PLC module or an Arduino microprocessor. Thanks to the PLC or Arduino programming software, a wide range of exercises regarding the automation of the module in a working cycle or in stand-alone mode can be developed.
