Parts, materials, and packages orientation is based on similar principals. Every feed technology is dependent on the weight & geometry of the item combined with speed. When part geometry is unfavorable due to parts natural center of gravity, too many features or a of lack or features then active tooling is utilized to provide defined part or package orientation. These devices may be pneumatic and or electro-mechanical and are used in combination with sensors or vision technology systems and can be used for inspection, sortation or loading nests or upstream machines.
- Defined End Leading- Pick & Place
- Part Rotate- Radial Orientation
- Part Attitude- Part Upend Sensor based Selection
