Chute-Style Robotic Parts Diverters

Chutes, which lead to divided lanes can be an excellent way to provide automation processes. In this application, parts are placed on the conveyor by a robot.

Benefits include:

  • Cavity separation: Separate conveyor lanes isolate mold cavities—an excellent way to separate family molds
  • Quality control: If one section of the mold fails, only parts from that cavity need to be discarded
  • Extend robot range: Chutes can be used to move parts beyond the normal 'release' range of a robot
  • Increase robot speed: Chutes can increase the speed of a robot by allowing it to release all 4 parts at once—without having to rotate the end-of-arm tooling

How does it work?

  • A robot removes four parts at a time from the mold.
  • It positions the parts over the four cut outs and releases them into the chutes.
  • The parts move through the chutes to the four divided lanes.
  • The conveyor moves them to the end and fills them into four separate containers.
