Material Flow System in Robotic Assembly

Bhuyan, Rajat Narayan (2011) Material Flow System in Robotic Assembly. BTech thesis.



The traditional design methods normally demands long throughput times, more effort and high cost. Hence implementation of new efficient design strategies along with application to robotic assembly has become highly necessary. Hence an automated system should be designed that holds much greater promise for productivity improvement and cost reduction. Vibratory Feeders are extensively used for Automatic Feeding and Orienting. It is one of the most widely used feeding devices.
This paper includes some literature collection on Automatic Assembly Transfer Systems along with the vibratory bowl feeder and its functioning. It also describes the mechanics of vibratory conveying and the design of a “vibratory bowl feeder feeding ball bearings”. The paper includes the individual part analysis of the vibratory bowl feeder such as the vibratory bowl, electromagnet, control unit, leaf spring, and base along with their design. Finally the assembled figure of vibratory bowl feeder is achieved along with some analysis.
