Abstract (en)

The component part gripper in modular format is for large plate parts, particularly motor vehicle bodywork, and comprises tubular parts joined to one another by clamp blocks and node pieces. As frame, a grid mast triangular in cross-section comprising tubes is arranged, of which two longitudinal tubes (1,2) are at the top and support one or more connecting parts (4). One longitudinal tube (3) is located at the bottom. On all longitudinal tubes by means of clamp blocks (8,9,10) and node pieces (14,20) three tube pieces (11,12,13) are brought together to form a boom, which at the node point supports intermediate pieces (15,27) for accommodation of grippers (16,17), suction units, hangers, stops (22) and similar components.

Abstract (de)

Die Erfindung betrifft einen Bauteilgreifer in Baukastenausführung, bestehend aus rohrförmigen Teilen, die durch Klemmblöcke und Knotenstücke miteinander verbunden sind, für große Blechteile, insbesondere Teile von Kraftfahrzeugkarosserien. Erfindungsgemäß soll ein gattungsgemäßer Bauteilgreifer geschaffen werden, der trotz seiner großen Dimensionen ein geringes Eigengewicht hat, biege- und verwindungssteif ist und mit im gleichen Maße biege- und verwindungssteifen Auslegern versehen ist, die schnell und genau auf die geforderten Positionen eingerichtet werden können. Dazu ist als Rahmen ein im Querschnitt dreieckiger Gittermast aus Rohren angeordnet, von denen zwei Längsrohre (1;2) oben liegen und ein oder mehrere Bauteile zur Anbindung tragen; dessen eines Längsrohr (3) unten liegt und an alle Längsrohre (1;2;3) durch Klemmblöcke (8;9;10) und Knotenstücke (14;20) jeweils drei Rohrstücke (11;12;13) zu einem Ausleger zusammengefasst sind, der am Knotenpunkt Zwischenstücke (15;27) zur Aufnahme von Greifern (16;17), Saugern, Spannern, Anschlägen (22) und gleichartigen Bauelementen trägt. <IMAGE>
