Abstract

The invention relates to a hose holder (10) for a robot (1), wherein the hose holder (10) comprises a holder (11) with a shaft (15) and a receptacle (12) with clamps (14) and the receptacle (12). rotatably on the shaft (15) of the holder (11) is executed.

Description

  • The invention relates to a hose holder according to the preamble of claim 1, and to a robot equipped therewith.
  • It is from the DE 10 2008 001 314 A1 a delta robot with hose holders for receiving pneumatic and vacuum hoses known. The tube holders are attached to the parallelogram bars, with the pneumatic and vacuum tubes being releasably fixed in the tube holders. In applications with gripper units comprising a plurality of suction pads, some of which are separately driven, it is necessary to guide a plurality of vacuum hoses from the gripper unit along the parallelogram bars to the upper platform of the delta robot. If pickers with such gripper units are used in the food industry, it may be necessary to clean the gripper units with the vacuum hoses several times a day. To do this, the gripper units and the vacuum hoses must be removed from the delta robot. The repeated laying of the vacuum hoses on the delta robot represents a great effort and requires long downtimes. There is also the risk of confused connections; The result is malfunctioning of the gripper and further downtimes. Furthermore, the known tube holder are rigidly attached to the Parallelogrammstäben so that it comes with fast and far-reaching movements of the delta robot to high bending cycles of the vacuum hoses in the hose holder, which in turn reduce the life of the vacuum hoses.
  • Object of the present invention is to reduce downtime for a change of gripper units together with vacuum hoses on a robot and to increase the life of vacuum hoses.
  • This object is achieved by a hose holder for robots having the features of claim 1. Advantageous developments of the invention are specified in the subclaims.
  • The inventive tube holder for a robot, preferably for a delta robot, has a plurality of U-shaped clamps for tubes and is characterized in that it comprises a holder for attachment to a moving actuator arm of a robot and a receptacle for fixing the tubes. This simple and inexpensive construction has the advantage that, on the one hand, a group of vacuum hoses, which are fixed in the clamps of the receptacle, can be removed without tools together from the actuating arm for cleaning purposes. On the other hand, the rotatable mount ensures that the bending stress on the hoses is reduced because the rotatable mount can compensate for twisting or bending of the hoses, which are generated by the movement of the robot.
  • Preferably, the holder has a clamping device for attachment to moving actuating arms, which is suitable for fastening a hose holder at arbitrary positions along actuating arms, which are for example parallelogram bars, in order to optimize the laying or fixing of the hoses.
  • Preferably, the holder has a shaft configured to receive the receptacle, the shaft serving as an axis of rotation for the receptacle. In this case, the shaft z. B. a slot to the shaft end to be able to taper as far as to postpone the recording without the use of tools on the shaft and can pull down.
  • At a free end of the shaft, a collar is preferably arranged to secure the receptacle on the shaft. In addition, can be tapered so far through the slot that the recording can be pushed without tools by an operator on the shaft and pulled down again.
  • The shaft preferably has a portion with a length corresponding to a length of the receptacle. This simple design allows only one turn and no axial position change of the recording.
  • The receptacle preferably has a plurality of terminals.
  • In a particularly advantageous embodiment, the receptacle has a bore which is configured to be able to attach the receptacle to the holder and to mount the receptacle rotatably relative to the holder.
  • Preferably, the receptacle has two opposing rows of clamps to make the receptacle shorter or more compact with the same total number of clamps.
  • The holder and the receptacle are preferably made of plastic in order to enable a cost-effective as well as hygienic design.
  • In the following, an advantageous embodiment of the invention is explained in detail with reference to a drawing. In detail show:
  • 1 a schematic view of a delta robot,
  • 2 a hose holder according to the invention and
  • 3 a hose holder in a change position.
  • The same components are provided throughout the figures with the same reference numerals.
  • 1 shows a delta robot 1 with three pairs of parallelogram bars 2 and poor 3 , each with a servomotor 4 be driven to a gripper plate 5 to be able to move three-dimensionally. At the gripper plate 5 is a gripper 6 provided, the gripper 6 several vacuum and / or compressed air hoses 7 needed that with a media block 8th detachably connected to a stationary support 9 is provided. Both a parallelogram bar 2 , as well as an arm 3 are to be regarded together as a movable actuator arm.
  • The tubes 7 are by means of two hose holders 10 on a parallelogram bar 2a and by means of another hose holder 10 on the arm 3a between the gripper 6 or the gripper plate 5 and the media block 8th fixed. The middle hose holder 10 on the parallelogram bar 2a is shown in a change position where a holder 11 on the parallelogram bar 2a stationary and a recording 12 from the holder 11 was removed without tools.
  • To the gripper 6 together with the hoses 7 and the media block 8th for example for cleaning or maintenance purposes by the delta robot 1 to be able to take off the tubes 7 about the three removable shots 12 which can be released manually without the use of tools, along with the removable media block 8th from the delta robot 1 be solved. Here are the hoses 7 continue in the three shots 12 fixed. The gripper 6 is also keyless from the gripper plate 5 solvable.
  • 2 shows a hose holder according to the invention 10 with the holder 11 and the recording 12 , The holder 11 includes a clamping device 13 which is double-shelled to the holder 11 on a tubular actuating arm, for example a parallelogram bar 2 , to fix. The recording 12 includes a row R with six U-shaped clamps 14 up to six tubes 7 to be able to record or fix in it.
  • 3 shows the hose holder 10 in a changing position, in which the recording 12 from the holder 11 in the axial direction of a shaft 15 of the owner 11 was pulled down. The wave 15 has a slot 16 and at the end of the shaft a bunch 17 on. The wave 15 is for storage and rotation of the recording 12 on the holder 11 provided and the federal government 17 provides the backup of the recording 12 on the holder 11 dar. To the recording 12 on the wave 15 to push or off the shaft 15 deduct, it is envisaged that the covenant 17 who also like the wave 15 the slot 16 can be compressed by the operator, for example, with thumb and forefinger of one hand to the outer dimension of the collar 17 so far as to reduce that one bore 18 in the recording 12 over the covenant 17 away on the wave 15 can be pushed. On the wave 15 is a section 19 provided, which has a length L1 and a length L2 of the recording 12 equivalent. On the section 19 is the recording 12 rotatably mounted and over the waistband 17 that has a larger diameter than the section 19 has, on the holder 11 axially secured.
  • Also conceivable is an alternative embodiment of the recording 12 in which two are preferably opposite and along the bore 18 aligned rows R with clamps 14 are provided.
