Copier tubes are delivered to the processing system, where a robot picks three tubes at a time in an operator-defined pattern and places them onto a fixture. When 24 tubes have been placed onto the fixture, the conveyor moves the fixture into the cleaner system.
After exiting the cleaner system, a robot removes the tubes from the fixture. The robot adjusts the centerline spacing to 75mm and places the tubes onto the conveyor pallet. A camera vision system checks for proper tube placement before releasing the pallet inside the cleanroom.
The conveyor transports the full pallets through tube-coating and edge-wiping process stations within the cleanroom. The modular components are designed and constructed for Class 100 cleanroom use and for a Class 1 Division 1 explosion-proof environment. Approximately 50 variables in the coating and cleaning processes define critical speeds, times, and accelerations of the multi-segmented profiles.
