With reference to fig. 2 to 11, specific detailed features of the present embodiment and the interaction relationship between the components are further illustrated, and it is particularly emphasized that the detailed features are only for facilitating the understanding of the present invention by those skilled in the art, and the specific embodiments are not limited thereto.
First, referring to fig. 2 to 5, fig. 2 is a schematic side view of the pick-and-place module 2 and the object D to be detected on the track 11 according to the first embodiment of the present invention. Fig. 3 is a schematic side view of the pick-and-place module 2 according to the first embodiment of the present invention picking up the object D to be detected from the track 11. Fig. 4 is a partially enlarged schematic view of a portion I of fig. 3. Fig. 5 is a schematic side view of the pick-and-place module 2 according to the first embodiment of the present invention picking up the object D from the rail 11.
The taking and placing module 2 of the present embodiment includes a first fixing seat 21, a first lifting mechanism 22, and a taking and placing mechanism 23. Wherein, the first fixing seat 21 is fixed on the supporting frame 12 of the conveying module 1 and extends towards two sides in the direction of the second axial direction a 2; the first lifting mechanism 22 is disposed on the first fixing base 21 and can reciprocate along the second axial direction a2 relative to the first fixing base 21; the pick-and-place mechanism 23 is provided on the first elevating mechanism 22, and can reciprocate up and down with respect to the first elevating mechanism 22.
More specifically, a driver may be disposed on the first fixing seat 21, and the driver drives the first lifting mechanism 22 and the pick-and-place mechanism 23 thereon to reciprocate along the second axial direction a2 (in this embodiment, the extending direction of the first fixing seat 21). In addition, a separate driver is provided to the first elevating mechanism 22, and thereby the pick-and-place mechanism 23 is driven to ascend and descend.
In the present embodiment, referring to fig. 2, when the object D to be detected is placed on the track 11 and is transported to the position close to the detection position 4 along the first axial direction a1 (as shown in fig. 1), the pick-and-place module 2 moves to above the object D to be detected. Referring to fig. 3, in order to pick up the object D to be detected on the track 11, the pick-and-place mechanism 23 descends along the first lifting mechanism 22 and is combined with the object D to be detected.
Referring to fig. 4, in the present embodiment, the pick-and-place mechanism 23 includes a central column 231, a frame body 232 and a fixed suction cup 233, wherein one end of the central column 231 is connected to the first lifting mechanism 22 and can be driven to ascend or descend, a plurality of frame bodies 232 are disposed on the central column 231, and each frame body 232 is provided with a plurality of fixed suction cups 233. The pick-and-place mechanism 23 of the present embodiment is attached to the top surface of the object D (e.g. a panel) to be detected by a plurality of fixing suckers 233, so that the pick-and-place module 2 can fix and move the object D to be detected. In other possible embodiments of the present invention, the combination manner between the pick-and-place module 2 and the object D to be detected may also be changed according to the shape or size of the object D to be detected, and is not limited by the adsorption.
Referring to fig. 5, in the embodiment, after the pick-and-place mechanism 23 of the pick-and-place module 2 fixes the object D to be detected by the fixing suction cup 233, the central column 231 of the pick-and-place mechanism 23 ascends along the first lifting mechanism 22, so that the object D to be detected is driven by the pick-and-place mechanism 23 to leave the surface of the track 11. So far, the taking and placing module 2 completes the work of taking the object D to be detected from the track 11 through the mutual matching of the first fixing seat 21, the first lifting mechanism 22 and the taking and placing mechanism 23.
Referring to fig. 6 to 8, fig. 6 is a schematic side view illustrating the pick-and-place module 2 moving the object D to be detected to the detection position 4 along the second axial direction a2 according to the first embodiment of the present invention. Fig. 7 is a schematic side view of the pick-and-place module 2 of the first embodiment of the invention placing the object D to be detected at the detection position 4. Fig. 8 is a perspective view illustrating the object D to be detected placed at the detection position 4 and the pick-and-place module 2 is separated according to the first embodiment of the present invention.
As shown in fig. 6, after the pick-and-place module 2 picks up the object D to be detected from the surface of the rail 11. The first lifting mechanism 22 and the pick-up mechanism 23 of the pick-up module 2 move together along the first fixing base 21, and at the same time, the object D to be detected is driven to move along the second axial direction a2 toward the detection position 4.
Particularly, the detection position 4 referred to in the present invention may be a detection point provided with an automatic detection device, so that when the object D to be detected is sent into the detection position 4, the automatic detection device can automatically detect the object D to be detected; or, the detection position 4 may also be a semi-automatic detection inspection station, and after the object D to be detected is sent into the detection position 4, the detection device is manually started to inspect the object D to be detected; even a purely human visual inspection of the test site is possible. The main structure of the present invention is that the operation of the pick-and-place module 2 for picking or placing the object D to be detected can be performed smoothly during the process of feeding the object D to be detected from the track 11 to the detection position 4 and during the process of feeding the object D to be detected from the track detection position 4 back to the track 11, and the method for inspecting the object D to be detected at the detection position 4 is not a technical object specifically limited by the present invention.
The present invention will be described in detail with reference to the following examples. Referring to fig. 7, in the present embodiment, after the pick-and-place module 2 moves the object D to be detected above the detection position 4, the central column 231 of the pick-and-place mechanism 23 descends along the first lifting mechanism 22, so that the object D to be detected is placed on the surface of the detection position 4 by the pick-and-place mechanism 23. Next, referring to fig. 8, after the object D to be detected is placed on the surface of the detection position 4 by the pick-and-place mechanism 23, the pick-and-place module 2 leaves the detection position 4. More specifically, the pick-and-place module 2 will firstly release the suction state between the fixed suction cup 233 of the pick-and-place mechanism 23 and the object D to be detected, and let the central column 231 of the pick-and-place mechanism 23 rise along the first lifting mechanism 22, so as to leave the object D to be detected on the detection table 41 of the detection position 4. In this embodiment, the detection table 41 may be a light-transmitting table of a light box, so that a detection person can visually confirm whether the object D to be detected has a defect, as described above, the detection table 41 may also be a carrying table used for placing the object D to be detected, and the object D to be detected can be detected at the detection position 4 by other automatic detection equipment, and the specific detection manner is not limited to the scope of the present invention.
Next, referring to fig. 9 to 11, fig. 9 is a schematic perspective view illustrating the pick-and-place module 2 placing the object D to be detected on the temporary storage transferring module 3 according to the first embodiment of the present invention. Fig. 10 is a front view of the temporary storage and transfer module 3 according to the first embodiment of the present invention for carrying the objects D to be detected. Fig. 11 is a front view of the temporary storage and transfer module 3 according to the first embodiment of the present invention moving downward to place the object D on the track 11.
In this embodiment, when the object D to be detected has been detected at the detection position 4 and is determined to be good, the object D to be detected needs to be moved back to the track 11 from the detection position 4. In this process, the object D to be detected is firstly taken up from the detection table 41 of the detection position 4 by the pick-and-place module 2, and since this process is basically the same as the process of taking up the object D to be detected from the track 11 by the pick-and-place module 2, the drawing of the figure description is not repeated here.
Next, referring to fig. 9, the first lifting mechanism 22 and the retrieving mechanism 23 of the retrieving module 2 move together along the first fixing seat 21, and drive the object D to be detected to return to the track 11 along the second axial direction a 2. In this embodiment, the object D to be detected is not directly placed on the track 11, but the temporary storage transferring module 3 receives the object D to be detected away from the detecting position 4 from the taking module 2.
More specifically, referring to fig. 9 and fig. 10, before the pick-and-place module 2 returns the object D to the track 11 from the detecting position 4, the second lifting mechanism 32 and the temporary storage mechanism 33 of the temporary storage and transfer module 3 move together along the second fixing seat 31, in other words, move along the first axial direction a1 to a position capable of receiving the object D to be detected leaving the detecting position 4. After the pick-and-place module 2 returns with the object D to be detected, the pick-and-place module 2 places the object D to be detected on the temporary storage mechanism 33 of the temporary storage transferring module 3. Thus, when the second lifting mechanism 32 and the temporary storage mechanism 33 of the temporary storage transferring module 3 are moved away along the first axis a1, the pick-and-place module 2 can pick up another object D to be detected placed on the lower rail 11 again.
Next, how the temporary storage transfer module 3 places the objects D to be detected on the return rail 11 in the present embodiment will be described with reference to fig. 10 and 11. It should be noted that the following description is only one possible embodiment of the present invention, and the specific protection scope of the present invention is not limited thereto, and any other embodiments that can be easily considered by those skilled in the art should be considered to be covered by the main concept of the present invention.
Before explaining the placement method of the present embodiment, it is necessary to further explain the structure of the rail 11 of the present embodiment. The conveying module 1 of this embodiment is provided with a plurality of conveying rollers 111 along the rail 11, and in the process of conveying the object D to be detected along the first axial direction a1 by the conveying module 1, the object D to be detected is mainly placed on the upper surfaces of the plurality of conveying rollers 111, and the object D to be detected is driven by the plurality of conveying rollers 111 to move along the first axial direction a 1. The conveying rollers 111 have a gap G therebetween, which is smaller than the length of the object D to be detected along the first axial direction a1, and more specifically, smaller than 1/2 or less of the length of the object D to be detected along the first axial direction a1, so as to prevent the object D to be detected from falling into the gap G between the conveying rollers 111 during conveyance.
The following description continues how the temporary storage transferring module 3 places the object D to be detected on the return track 11, please refer to fig. 10 and fig. 11 again. In the embodiment, the temporary storage mechanism 33 of the temporary storage transferring module 3 includes a base 331 and a carrying rod 332, wherein one end of the base 331 is connected to the second lifting mechanism 32 and can be driven to ascend or descend, and the carrying rods 332 are disposed on the base 331 for carrying the object D to be detected. The plurality of carrying rods 332 extend in a direction parallel to the conveying roller 111, and can be driven by the second lifting mechanism 32 to ascend or descend along with the base 331.
As described above, after the object D to be detected is moved away from the detection position 4 by the pick-and-place module 2, the temporary storage transfer module 3 receives the object D to be detected, and when the temporary storage transfer module 3 moves downward from the top surface of the track 11, the object D to be detected is placed on the track 11. Specifically, the pick-and-place module 2 places the objects D to be detected on the plurality of carrying rods 332 of the temporary storage and transfer module 3. When the second lifting mechanism 32 and the temporary storage mechanism 33 move to a position without other objects D to be detected along the first axial direction a1, the base 331 of the temporary storage mechanism 33 descends along the second lifting mechanism 32, and the plurality of carrying rods 332 respectively pass through the plurality of gaps G between the plurality of conveying rollers 111, so that the objects D to be detected are placed on the plurality of conveying rollers 111. The object D to be detected is returned to the track 11 of the conveying module 1, and the object D to be detected can be conveyed by the conveying module 1 along the first axial direction a1 continuously for subsequent assembling operation or other kinds of detection operation.
Under taking and putting module 2 and keeping in touch with each other of moving and carrying module 3 for take and put module 2 and will wait to detect after the thing D is sent back to track 11 from detection position 4, can take other on track 11 again immediately and wait to detect thing D, and needn't be in order to carry out the detection work, the operation of transporting of whole track 11 is suspended, also needn't be in order to let take and put module 2 will wait to detect thing D and put track 11 back, and wait for conveying module 1 to detect other thing D and remove other positions, so that vacate the vacancy that can place and wait to detect thing D on track 11, consequently, can promote the work efficiency of whole detection procedure by a wide margin.
The above description is of the basic application form of the present invention, and in summary, the basic application form mainly includes the following features: the detection system S includes a conveying module 1, a pick-and-place module 2, and a temporary storage and transfer module 3, wherein the conveying module 1 has a track 11 for carrying at least one object D to be detected, and the track 11 extends along a first axial direction a 1; the pick-and-place module 2 is arranged at a position adjacent to the track 11 and can reciprocate along a second axial direction A2 staggered with the first axial direction A1; the temporary storage transfer module 3 is disposed adjacent to the rail 11 and is capable of reciprocating along the first axial direction a 1. In practice, however, the present invention can achieve other effects by adding technical features, and the following embodiments are further described in detail.
[ second embodiment ]
Please refer to fig. 1 and fig. 12 together, wherein fig. 12 is a block diagram illustrating a connection relationship of components according to a second embodiment of the present invention. In the present embodiment, a control module 5 and an automatic optical detection module 6 are mainly added, a plurality of detection positions 4 are disposed along the track 11, and a pick-up module 2 and a temporary transferring module 3 are respectively disposed corresponding to the plurality of detection positions 4. The control module 5 is connected to the conveying module 1, the plurality of fetching modules 2, the plurality of temporary storage transferring modules 3 and the automatic optical detection module 6, and can control the operation of the conveying module 1, the plurality of fetching modules 2, the plurality of temporary storage transferring modules 3 and the automatic optical detection module 6.
In the present embodiment, the conveying module 1 is controlled by the control module 5 to convey the object D to be detected. Before the object D to be detected is sent to the detection position 4, the control module 5 will control the automatic optical detection module 6 to perform the pre-detection on the object D to be detected. Specifically, the automatic optical detection module 6 is configured to determine whether the object D to be detected has an identification feature, where the identification feature may be a potential defect feature or a classification feature according to different application examples. For example, if the automatic optical detection module 6 determines that the object D to be detected has a potential defect characteristic, when the subsequent object D to be detected is conveyed to the position close to the detection position 4 by the conveying module 1, the pick-and-place module 2 will pick up the object D to be detected from the track 11, so that the object D to be detected can be moved to the detection position 4 for further detailed detection. In other application modes, if each detection position 4 corresponds to a detection category, and the automatic optical detection module 6 is configured to determine the classification feature of the object D to be detected, the control module 5 may drive the corresponding pick-and-place module 2 according to the classification feature of each object D to be detected after receiving the classification feature identified by the automatic optical detection module 6, so as to move the object D to be detected to the detection position 4 capable of performing the corresponding detection category.
It should be noted that, the function of determining whether the object D to be detected has the identification feature in advance by the automatic optical detection module 6 and determining whether the pick-up module 2 picks up the object D to be detected from the track 11 according to the determination result is not necessarily implemented by the control module 5 controlling the automatic optical detection module 6 and the pick-up module 2 separately, and in other embodiments of the present invention, the automatic optical detection module 6 and the pick-up module 2 may be directly connected and implemented by other control methods, including but not limited to: the automatic optical detection module 6 directly sends a control signal to the pick-and-place module 2; or after the automatic optical detection module 6 sends the judgment result to the taking and placing module 2, the control mechanism built in the taking and placing module 2 drives the taking and placing module 2 to take the object D to be detected.
Returning to the present embodiment, in an application example where the automatic optical detection module 6 is used to determine whether the object D to be detected has a potential defect characteristic, if the object D to be detected is further determined to be a defective product at the detection position 4, the pick-and-place module 2 moves the object D to be detected away from the detection position 4, and then the object D to be detected is not moved back to the track 11, nor is the object D to be detected placed on the temporary storage and transfer module 3, but the object D to be detected is directly moved to a disposal area (not shown) from the pick-and-place module 2. The object D to be detected moved to the disposal area may be discarded or discarded, or may be repaired and subjected to the next round of detection.
In addition, in other application modes of the present invention, it can also be determined which detection position 4 each object D to be detected is to be sent to for detection through a suitable arrangement of the control module 5. For example, if fifteen objects D to be detected need to be detected at a time, and the detection system S has three detection positions 4, at this time, the objects D to be detected arranged in the 1 st, 4 th, 7 th, 10 th and 13 th orders can be sent to the first detection position 4 for detection through the control module 5, the objects D to be detected arranged in the 2 nd, 5 th, 8 th, 11 th and 14 th orders can be sent to the second detection position 4 for detection, and the objects D to be detected arranged in the 3 rd, 6 th, 9 th, 12 th and 15 th orders can be sent to the third detection position 4 for detection. In this way, when the object D to be detected arranged in the 1 st order is taken from the track 11 to the first detection position 4 by the taking and placing module 2, the track 11 can still keep the conveying state, so that other objects D to be detected can be conveyed backwards continuously without stopping the operation of the conveying module 1. After the object D to be detected arranged in the 1 st order is detected, the pick-and-place module 2 corresponding to the first detection position 4 moves the object D to be detected arranged in the 1 st order to the temporary storage transfer module 3 corresponding to the first detection position 4, finds a vacant position on the track 11 where no other object D to be detected is placed by the temporary storage transfer module 3, and puts the object D to be detected back on the track 11.

The present embodiment provides a detection method, which is applied to a detection system S, and the detection method includes the following steps:
s100: and an automatic optical detection module 6 is used for pre-detecting the object D to be detected.
S102: the object D is carried by the rail 11 of the transport module 1 and transported in the first axial direction a 1. It should be noted that the steps S100 and S102 are not necessarily in order, and the object D to be detected may be conveyed through the track 11 of the conveying module 1, and the automatic optical detection module 6 performs pre-detection on the object D to be detected during the conveying process.
S104: and determining whether the object D to be detected is moved to the detection position 4 by the pick-and-place module 2 according to whether the object D to be detected has the identification characteristics. When the object D to be detected is judged to have the identification characteristics, the step S106 is carried out; otherwise, the process proceeds to step S114. More specifically, the objects D to be detected with different kinds of identification features can be distinguished into different objects D to be detected, and the different objects D to be detected are respectively moved to the corresponding detection positions 4 by the different fetching and placing modules 2.
S106: the object D to be detected is moved from the track 11 to the detection position 4 beside the track 11 in the second axial direction a2, which is staggered with respect to the first axial direction a1, by means of the pick-and-place module 2 arranged adjacent to the track 11.
S108: the detection object D is detected at the detection position 4.
S110: when the object D to be detected is judged to be a good product, the taking and placing module 2 moves the object D to be detected to the temporary storage transferring module 3; on the contrary, when the object D to be detected is determined to be a defective product at the detection position 4, the pick-and-place module 2 takes away the object D to be detected, and then the object D to be detected is moved from the pick-and-place module 2 to a disposal area.
S112: the temporary storage transfer module 3 reciprocates along the first axial direction a1, and places the object D to be detected on the rail 11. In this step, when the temporary storage transferring module 3 moves downward from the top surface of the track 11, the plurality of carrying rods 332 of the temporary storage transferring module 3 respectively pass through the plurality of gaps G between the plurality of conveying rollers 111, so that the object D to be detected is moved from the plurality of carrying rods 332 to the plurality of conveying rollers 111.
S114: after the object D returns to the track 11 (receiving step S112), or the object D has not been moved to the detecting position 4 by the pick-and-place module 2 (receiving step S104), the track 11 continues to convey the object D.
Through the above-mentioned method process, not only can the automatic optical detection module 6 be used to determine whether the object D to be detected has/has any kind of identification characteristics in advance to determine whether the object D to be detected is to be taken/taken by which taking and placing module 2, so as to achieve the effects of flaw pre-detection or classification (the object D to be detected with different kinds of identification characteristics is divided into different objects D to be detected, and the different taking and placing modules 2 are respectively moved to the corresponding detection positions 4), etc., but more importantly, through the mutual matching of the taking and placing module 2 and the temporary storage and transfer module 3, the taking and placing module 2 can immediately take other objects D to be detected on the track 11 again after the object D to be detected is taken back from the detection position 4 to the track 11, and does not need to suspend the conveying operation of the whole track 11 for the detection work, and does not need to allow the taking and placing module 2 to place the object D to be detected back to the track 11, and wait for conveying module 1 to remove other objects D that wait to detect to other positions to vacate the vacancy that can place the object D that waits to detect on track 11, consequently, can promote the work efficiency of whole detection procedure by a wide margin.
[ advantageous effects of the embodiments ]
The invention has the advantages that the technical scheme that the track 11 extends along the first axial direction A1, the taking module 2 reciprocates along the second axial direction A2 staggered with the first axial direction A1 and the temporary storage and transfer module 3 reciprocates along the first axial direction A1 can be adopted, so that when the taking module 2 moves the object D to be detected back to the track 11, the temporary storage and transfer module 3 can temporarily receive the object D to be detected, and the temporary storage and transfer module 3 can place the object D to be detected back to the track 11, so that the taking module 2 can immediately take other objects D to be detected on the track 11 again, and the working efficiency of the whole detection process can be greatly improved.
